K-1 visa interview

Ok guys...help me out! Never realize how stressful this process can be. Have a couple of questions?

First I would like to know if it is possible to schedule an interview date before receiving the NOA2? I notice on other profiles that the time between NOA1 and NOA2 is average but then the interview is about 3 MONTHS after the NOA2! Never expected to wait so long for the interview :(

Next question is did any of you guys have a lawyer to file the paperwork? I know it doesn't make a difference in the processing time if you do have one, but I was wondering if anyone was required to turned in extra forms or the process was delayed, even after having a lawyer.

Sorry if my questions are repetitive to others or just plain silly, but I can see I will need a lot of support going through this. :crying:

Thanks guys!!

No, it's not possible to schedule an interview before NOA2 - it's not even possible to schedule an interview right when getting NOA2 - you have to go through the NVC, then they send it to the embassy, then the embassy will tell YOU when the interview is on their schedule - unfortunately you have no control over it.

Second, having or not having a lawyer will not speed up / slow down the process or avoid a request for additional evidence.

No you have to wait for the NOA2 in order to move forward with the interview. After you get the NOA2 then your info goes to NVC then to the embassy. Once at the embassy you will send them part 1 of the DS-230 then at that point the embassy will give you an interview date.

I didn't use a lawyer. You should be able to do fine by yourself. Just make sure you pay attention to detail.
