I am new to this sight. I have filled out the initial forms (I-129F) for the K-1 visa, and am in the process of making the copies of my passport, photos, phone records, and all of that jazz. My fiance Fran has filled out his biographic information form (G-325A) with his signature, and will be mailing that to me shortly. When I receive his part, I will mail everything in exactly as asked for. I am builing a strong case with all of the necessary evidence so that they can't possible ask for more. Can somebody please tell me how long of a wait we are in for? Will they accept us if we give them everything they ask for?! We will mail our papers in to the Texas office. Can somebody please give me a little bit of encouragement and tell me that it will be ok...

Thanks,

Alicia

Well!

Looks like if you don't get an RFE it might take two months to get through CSC.. then another month till you get packet three from the embassy.. then however long it takes them to get him in for an interview. Maybe four to seven months? But who knows? These things are really hard to predict, and some people get RFEs even though they have tons of evidence. Anyway, four months or twelve, we'll all get through it eventually. Be strong!

For the Biographic form, G-325A, make sure he sends you all four pages, all signed and four for you too, all signed & make a photo copy of everything before you send it. :thumbs:

I am new to this sight. I have filled out the initial forms (I-129F) for the K-1 visa, and am in the process of making the copies of my passport, photos, phone records, and all of that jazz. My fiance Fran has filled out his biographic information form (G-325A) with his signature, and will be mailing that to me shortly. When I receive his part, I will mail everything in exactly as asked for. I am builing a strong case with all of the necessary evidence so that they can't possible ask for more. Can somebody please tell me how long of a wait we are in for? Will they accept us if we give them everything they ask for?! We will mail our papers in to the Texas office. Can somebody please give me a little bit of encouragement and tell me that it will be ok...

Thanks,

You also need to keep in mind that TSC transfers to CSC - which can take between 2 and 6 months - it's impossible to know. Yes, if you file everything correctly and there are no skeletons in your closet, your I-129F will be approved. Visa approval is up to his consulate and you should be fine barring any unforseen circumstances. Good luck.

and one more thing how did u write your letter of intent? it best be 2-3 pages long... they want to know everything from the day u met to the present time. tell about your trip if u went to see him. what u did together. his family, friends ect... and how u r doing without him and how u get through everyday life knowing he isnt there and what u both have planned for the future.... how he asked u to marry him everything. if u think aobut something put it in and it wont hurt to write yours and then help him write his to make sure it some what is the same.

Or ..... make it short and sweet. ;)

Our letters of intent were two sentences long, and said the same exact thing (we just switched around the names).


6/29 - NEW I-129 mailed to CSC

7/21 - NOA1 issued

9/21 - finally ... my first touch!!

9/21 - NOA2 issued
