Hi Guys

Apologies for asking questions that have already been asked, but here goes..

Jody, my husband of 2 1/2 years, and I were married in USVI (St Thomas). He originally had visa to live here (UK) however we have decided to move me to USA (he has been back working in Orlando for 10 months).

We originally started our application with the I130 08/17/2006 (Texas) and have had receipt. We have also sent an I129F 2 weeks ago in the hope of getting a K3 visa quicker...

so my questions are

1. Have we done the right thing as from reading the polls K3's are taking longer?

2. How long do you think it will take to get to the next stage - I was hoping that I may be looking at getting to USA early New Year - do you think this is likely?

3. Any advice for dealing with US Embassy in London when I eventually end up there much appreciated...

Sorry if this has all been written before...I was gobsmacked how complicated this all is as when Jody came to UK we collected soem documents, sent his visa to New York and his Visa was returned within 3 weeks of application!

If you want point me in direction of other posts then that would be most welcome too....

PS thanks for the hope that the other messages have given me, I was feeling really down about all this until I found this forum :-)

Clare -- welcome to the forum. I konw what you mean -- I was also very down before I stumbled into VisaJourney. Read the pinned topic (the first one) to get general information. Then go to the Immigration Timelines tab to get an idea of what is taking how long.

You did the right thing -- my K3 came in faster than my CR1 (and is still faster in general). Just dig in for the long haul (a few months) and keep your chin up. This water torture WILL end :-) Feb/March of 2007 is an aspirational date, but very possible...

Good luck...

may not be of much help, but jus wishing u both best of luck!!

follow the thread by name "where K3 stands"..u shall see diff dates of filed to the dates of approval and how many days it took for each member to get approved..

following closely members who filed around july..there SEEMS to be 60-65 days period of time to get ur approval notice(just my guess)

and after that u have period where NVC sends ur approved docs to ur local US consulate n u get the final intrv...
