Recommended Posts

Just wanted to sy my visa was approved and i have it in hands. They never ever mentioned oversstay i actually came up and say i stopped attending school last year, did not file adjustment of status due to the things we were going thru with our daughter. The lady that gets your documents nee every single thing about my case. She was very nice and simpathetic. She said the consul was aware of my case and was going to have him interview me first. The consul said hi asked me to swear to tellthe truthand asked me three questions, yes three wuestions. When did we get married, when did we meet, do you guys have a daughter together? Then he said i have nothign else to ask,your vida is approved, i have no doubts you have s real relationship so welcome back to america. I then asked if i could have my visa printed the next day because i wanted go leave saturday, he said he would try and if he was able to he would call me to get it later that afternoon which he did call me two hours later amd here i am withmy visa in hands already. For those who helped me thru this journey so much i am deep,y thankful. I am glad i did not listen to a couple mean ones that kepg on sayi g things they werenot aware of so for that i say consult a lawyer.

First of all.

CONGRATZ =D

secondly

i have a question, My wife's i-130 got expedited through uscis by way of the Tennessee senators office, not sure how but what do i do with NVC to get it expedited through there as well. As far as the embassy goes. i know how to get a quicker appointment with them.

I ask this to you because you expedited through both Uscis and NVC. sorry to have to ask this of you but your the only one i know of Non military that did it.
