10 months wait

Hello all,

I've been dreaming of the day I will get to write one of these... My fiance visa was approved today in London. It was such a breeze, he said they never looked at all the supporting documents he had with him (pics, phone records, letters from friends, emails...)

The interview itself lasted less than 2 minutes and the guy interviewing him was smiling the whole time as my fiance told him our story.

We started this journey in Aug 2010 (10 months ago) and back then I was sure we will be together in the USA by December 2010 since so many April-June people were getting their visas within 5 months.

7 months of waiting only to get the petition approval from vermont (no RFE) and a couple months to get a visa appointment.

Thank you VISAJOURNEY and Nich-Nich for detailed guidelines and help. Looking back I think I would've given up if I didn't have the hope that God is in control and the ressources (and estimated wait times from other members) of VJ

“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”
