Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Ukraine

Hi, everybody! At last we were approved!!!!! At last I can fly to my sweetheart :)

The interview was easy, everybody was kind and friendly, though I was extremely nervous. Be sure that your fiancee has all necessary documents, they are too strict about them. I was asked to give the divorce ce4rtificate, but as I got my divorce in January this year I didn't have it, according to the new law, had only the paper from the court. The woman said - NO, you should give the certificate, I was shoked, I was so close and now :bonk: , so I began to explain what I was told at the court and at last she said - ok, I will go and ask, if it's ok, i'll take it. You even can't imagine how I felt during those 3 minutes :crying: , yes something like that :yes: . At last the woman came back and said - Yes, everything is ok.

I was waiting rather long for meeting with a consul, almost about 2 hours. There were about 12 people there. The consul was a very friendly and pleasant woman, she could talk only in Ukrainian or English. As I spoke English she wanted to know more about my fiancee and our relations.

When did we meet?

How many times did he fly here?

For how long?

How did you communicate, how often do you use skype? Twice a week? after I told - NO, every day, she laughed

Did you talk about the wedding?

Do you want to have a fancy wedding?

When are you going to get married? After I answered - AS SOON AS I COME TO THE USA, she laughed again :)

then she said - well we can open your visa as all the documents are ok. And wished me happy life here with my beloved and added - hope, you'll like living there :)

From the documents of the affidavit of support they took only form I-134, W-2 for 2010 and 1040 for 2010, though I had A LOT of papers :)

But they took all the papers about our relations, photos, bills, tickets, letters, everything I brought, there were also a lot of papers.

Now we are waiting for the visas delivered, though I called to the company already and asked whether I can come and take visas for myself, as I want to buy tickets as soon as it is possible :)
