Omg, after what seemed like an eternity to get to this stage I had my appointment in Sydney today. I was extremely nervous, not because I was not prepared, because what if they said no. What would my future spouse and I do? We hired a lawyer for the process because we believed it was better with the paperwork that way and she done an amazing job, she was US based and i would recommend her to anyone to be honest. So back to today.... I walk in there with 30 emails, 30 photos. 50 pages of phone logs, records of our times together etc and .... Within no time at all I walked out approved without having to show any of that (we had submitted a lot of detail and we had spent 200 or so days together over 5 different trips), but OMG it still felt wonderful to know we can be together soon.

I want to send a huge thanks to this site as well, i read much more than I ever posted, but it was fantastic for peace of mind in my preparation.

:D :D :D

Congratulations, si man! :) And, good move to bring all that evidence -- better to have it and not need it than the converse.


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).
