Hello,

I hope you remember me. I left VJ last year because of something stupid.

Long story short: My fiance's ex-boyfriend played a sick joke on me. Long story short: He told my fiance to tell me that she slept with a guy at a party she was at. If she did not do this, he threatened to kill her family. This SOB was taken care of and after some healing, my fiance and proceeded with the K1 journey.

My fiance had her interview on May 23 and got a blue slip requesting the following: Timeline, 10 year residency (petitioner), 10 year residency (beneficiary) and an "loe" (letter of explanation) about the matchmaking agency we used to hook up. It said to submit the documents on June 20. My fiance submits the documents on June 20 and gets another blue slip for AP.

My fiance and I are not divorced. We have no children and were not introduced by family. Our only red flag was meeting at the matchmaking agency in Singapore. We put a lot of proof of all 4 meetings in the I-129F. We also put a short 2 page timeline in it. The interview on May 23 was smooth. She had a nice CO who asked about 20 questions: How did you meet? Where did you meet? How old is he? Where does he go to school? What is his job? etc. The CO never yelled at my fiance. She says it was nice and smooth.

This is so frustrating after what we went through last year with the ex-boyfriend situation.

I wanted to re-located to a different city for a better job but I am now afraid to do so since they are investigating us with the 10 year residency that they asked for. For those of you that went through AP, what is your advise for dealing with it?

Oh my gosh. I am sorry to hear that.

I feel so bad because now I am stuck where I am at. I worry I am not allowed by the Consulate to get a new job or move someplace else because I worry they will deny our case from AP. I figure that is why they ask for that stupid 10 year residency document. This is sooo frustrating. I was totally looking to moving to another city :(

You know what the big red flag was and with that letter they will be able to check it out. It may take some time.

Yes I will be here. I live in Kendall. We can meet up when you get back. I feel like I have lost direction. The good thing is that I was warned that this could possibly happen so the pain is not too bad.

I remember you. Howdy! B-)

The list of stuff they asked for may have just been a stalling tactic while they finished their investigation. If you look in the HCMC AP thread you'll see the odds of ultimately getting approved after AP are better than 50%. Hang in there. :thumbs:

Hello Jim. Yes, I briefly took a look at the AP thread. A few of them were out of AP within 2-3 months even though they were a coin toss between denial and approval. But I see a lot of them between 6-9 months. Oh boy that will be tough. I have a feeling that the waiting will be a lot like the Petition stage with USCIS all over again but this time at the Consulate.

I need your support guys. I can't get through this alone :(

You should know better as we are here for you. Need anything then just ask or even need to chat send a message and I will send my cell number. Now chill and fight this all the way. Call your congressman to get involved now.

I think the best thing for you to do now is to make sure your timeline and documents are in order. I heard that they actually go to beneficiary's home and neighborhood to check on their backgrounds, so you need to make sure everything is legit.
