Khalid's second interview is May 13th !

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We met online in March of 2008

We decided to marry as soon as we could

I was going through a divorce from my Christian husband at the time

Mainly because I accepted Islam

Khalid was always there for me through that messy divorce and custody fight

He's still there for me every day we talk

Mostly when I get home from work at night

We fall asleep on the phone together

Shortly after the divorce was final (a month or so) I flew to the UK to marry Khalid

I didn't want to bring him as fiance

In Islam you have to marry to have a physical relationship

We couldn't marry in the UK legally

He couldn't even find an imam to marry us only religiously

It was my bright idea for him to go to Pakistan so we can marry

This involved him taking his passport back from his attorney there in the UK

He was accepted to a Masters program at a university there

He was working making good money there as well

He agreed to go to Pakistan

Shortly before I was to travel there he found someone to marry us religiously

So we married in a mosque the same day I arrived in London

And a couple of days later we flew to Pakistan anyway

I had about two months then I needed to be back here for my children

They were with their fathers for the summer

We married legally in Pakistan in his family's home

We prayed together

I miss that

He always took me for rides on his motorcycle

He was going to get a car, but after riding his uncle's motorcycle with Khalid I insisted on a motorcycle

His mother is amazing

I can see why he is so wonderful

and patient

We got in an accident on his motorcycle

Some car was coming at us in the wrong lane

They drive on the left side of the road there

I'm a nurse, and it was strange to see the inside of one of their hospitals LOL and to receive care there

Soooo different than here

When it was time for me to leave I did not want to go

We had been to the embassy

I found out I was not eligible to file there

That I had to file from here

Well I did that just as soon as I arrived home

Late August or Early September 2008

We have been on a roller coaster of a visa journey ever since

In the summer of 2009 was his first interview

AP of course

Then they sent back our original documents

I thought it was finally over

I cried

Then with some digging I found out that they were sent back to him because he was denied

I was a mess

For days I cried and cried

Now I'm mostly numb

They sent the K3 case back to the US with the recommendation to revoke the visa approval

Because they came to the conclusion that I was still married to and living with my ex husband

Who was in the military and in another state and remarried himself with a baby on the way

It was absurd

I filed a complaint against the embassy

I contacted my Congressman's office

I didn't know what to do

Finally we have another chance

A second interview

I can't be there although I'd like to

This one is for the CR1 the immigrant visa

I hope they give it to him

I visited again in 2009 for two more months

I was going through more custody battles at the time and was losing

I have them back Alhamdulillah

All I need is my husband

Pray for us please

-Fatima

Well make sure he brings a real good original divorce decree to the interview or that you provided the court stamped document to the nvc

and my problem i believe was the fact that i was still living in the marital home

my ex was in another state in the military and also remarried

but i am guessing he had the house listed as his permanent address

it's just a guess

but i moved out of the house because of this a year ago

we still both own the house but it is abandoned

he was supposed to refinance it then i was supposed to sign a quit claim and move out

he never refinanced

we have not paid the mortgage since we separated so like '07

but because he went back into the military the bank or city/county can't/won't take it

it's a pain LOL

expect AP

sorry to say

the only ones that seem to avoid AP are the women

your husband is coming from Pakistan ?

I haven't seen Khalid since April 9, 2009 :(

Awwww it will be soon for you now.....dont worry dear... :) and yeah I went to the court and told them exactly what I was needing my certified divorce decree for so they gave me the certified copy AND a paper on top signed by 3 judges with a gold seal saying this was a certified divorce decree....and i had signed a quitclaim deed last year when the divorce was final...so seeing what happened to you I'm sure that your right on all accounts that is exaclty why they thought you may stil be living with him. I had changed my drivers licence even at the time I moved out...so those things shouldnt come into play for me...i just pray our interview goes well and if he is put on ap it wont be too long...

Inshallah dear you and your husband will finally be together soon!!!! im really happy for you and it sounds like this one went well :)
