Time-line of the relationship at an interview.

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

What is this "time-line" thing I keep hearing? I've been reading on here and some people are saying they're using or presenting a "notarized time-line of the relationship" at the interview. Is it necessary. I don't see that as a requirement on the consulate's website.

Timeline

Like a lot of things that HCMC requires, they are not stated in the application package. Nonetheless, they are "required" by the HCMC consulate. A timeline is a letter that describe your relationship with your finance. It should describe the how and when you guys meet, the current status of your relationship, and anything else you think the HCMC consulate should know.

01/01/2010......man meets woman

03/03/2010......man flights over there and meets woman........man & woman go here, there, do this and that, so much in love, oh my God, she's the right one for me. Yes, yes, yes, man so in love with her and will die if can't be with her.

06/06/2010......man comes back for the Engagement. Man looks gorgeous like Fabio for thousands of photo shoots.

07/07/2010......man files the petition

08/08/2010......man says "I can't sleep. I can't sleep. It takes too long to process the paperwork"

Got the drift?


Just remember, life over there in VN is NOT real! Your money will be worth a LOT less once you get back over here. Back to reality, cowboy!

Timeline

The "timeline" is something that is frequently requested on a blue slip issued at the end of the interview, but most VJ members with SO's in Vietnam know about it, and many like to have it ready so they can either try to submit it at the interview, or at least be able to submit it quickly if it's requested on a blue slip. Some people even frontload their petition with the timeline.

Anyway, the blue slip request reads like this:

PETITIONER:
In a sworn, notarized statement, please provide a detailed chronology (timeline) of your relationship. Please explain clearly when and how you first met, how you were introduced and when you began corresponding with each other, when you felt your relationship became serious, date and circumstance of marriage proposal (location, time, place, situation, setting, etc...). Did spouse/fiance(e) propose in person or by phone? Where were you when s/he proposed (give exact location)? Did you accept immediately or ask for time to think about it? If s/he did not officially propose, when did you first discuss marriage? How many trips did you make to Vietnam to visit your spouse/fiance(e)? How many times have you seen him/her in total? How long did you stay each visit? Please give as many details as possible.


12/15/2009 - K1 Visa Interview - APPROVED!

12/29/2009 - Married in Oakland, CA!

08/18/2010 - AOS Interview - APPROVED!

05/01/2013 - Removal of Conditions - APPROVED!

This is so funny. I wish you could use your sense of humor like this more often instead of negatively. :-) Then I'd enjoy reading your posts.
