Howdy!

Thanks for the invite! I am very glad to know that there are more people who have experienced either a K1 or K3 visa with a Jamaican significant other! I am American and I live in Arizona. My sweetheart lives in Jamaica. We are at the starting point and trying to decide which visa would better suit us in regards to the amount of time it would take to bring him here to the States. Originally we had discussed the K1 visa however speaking lately, he voiced his wish for us to marry in December. I am open to either visa avenue I am just a little overwhelmed with it all! I work 2 jobs and attend university part-time so my days are long and a little hectic. I guess I am here hoping to gain some insight as well as a support group. So thanks again for the invite and I look forward to meeting you all!

question: Who else met their Jamaican significant other online and how long was the initial courtship phase before engagement and/or marriage?

Thanks!

Sarah

Hi Sarah ;)

Good to see you here.

I met my SO while I was vacationing there almost three years ago. I've been to JA four times and we traveled to Atlantis in the Bahamas one time. I still have not filed yet but plan on going the K-1 route.

As Mindy said come in into the yardies thread and you will find a lot of support and assistance with your visa questions.

Hello Sarah......I met a wonderful Jamaican gentleman online on January 14, 2007......I just came from a 20 yr marriage that was physically, mentally and verbally abusive and had an 18 yo son that was killed in an automobile accident in June 2005. So really, I wasn't looking for another marriage anytime soon......I always said "It would have to be Mr. Right!".......Well I happened to be popping in and out of yahoo chat rooms, scared to really start chatting......When my Mr. Right sent me an instant message.......He asked me to marry him within the next month.......Chatting and seeing each other every day online.....We married on March 17, 2007 in Ocho Rios......After spending nine wonderful days together, he had to return to Cuba to work and I had to return home to the 14yo son I have here.....He is now back in Jamaica due to having a heat stroke at Gitmo......We have been approved for the I-130 and I have recently sent back the AOS fee bill.....Drew sent his DS-3032 Choice of Agent back last week so hopefully we will hear something soon from it.......It scares me about this interview process because I don't really know what they think of online relationships......I hope that they will see that we truly love each other and want to make a life together here in the States with me and my son......Keep in touch!
