is in my sig ;) you'll see the others around :D

right now, it's looking pretty slow, though, if you look at the processing times (link above in menu).

I also did a bit of comparing using the data made available here and especially if you're using the CSC, it seems like you should seriously consider the K3. Here's a link to my thread where I cite VJ's data:


These are statistics based on a very very finite set of people in a particular situation, so it's not universally true and since it's the average, there will be people (perhaps yourself) that will take a much shorter amount of time to process. However, after looking at the difference in times and a little bit of advice (in the thread), i went ahead and sent our K3 (just today, actually) so that I can try to get her here with me so we'll not have to wait so long to be together. Do a little bit of research on your particular situation and determine what's right for you. :) The K3 is another $170 but I can afford that and my sweetie is defintely worth it. :blush:

Hang in there. It looks like it won't be fast, but hopefully it won't stop. :thumbs:

Let me show you how to get your tax returns the easy way

aussiewench's thread for kicking butt in the NVC ('cause i'm too lazy to keep looking it up - haha)

Our DS-3032 email to the NVC

22 May 2006 - Case # Assigned @ NVC

14 Jul 2006 - DS-230 Package Received by USC

We stopped pursuit of CR-1 to pursue K3/AOS. For us, both required the same document, we could only have one valid copy, and the K3 was moving faster.
