Hi guys..I met a wonderful woman from Brazil and we have decided to try and get her here to the US to on the K-1 visa and get married! We are so happy and in love with each other. This site is FANTASTIC. I already found that I was filling out the wrong I-129F form...found examples of other documents I had questions on..and seen the time lines of some people on here. UFA! I hope we are one of the lucky ones. But thanks and will keep posting!

Take Care,

Randy

It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.

Randy, make a practice of getting your forms from uscis.gov and always reading the fee, mailing and special instructions posted on the website--forms are often incorrect, even when posted at uscis.gov

Go slowly, read ahead and it won't be a question of luck or not. Sounds like you're already lucky to find each other!


Now That You Are A Permanent Resident

How Do I Remove The Conditions On Permanent Residence Based On Marriage?

Welcome to the United States: A Guide For New Immigrants

Yes, even this last one.. stuff in there that not even your USC knows.....

Here are more links that I love:

Arriving in America, The POE Drill

Dual Citizenship FAQ

Other Fora I Post To:

alt.visa.us.marriage-based http://britishexpats.com/ and www.***removed***.com

censored link = *family based immigration* website

Inertia. Is that the Greek god of 'can't be bothered'?

Met, married, immigrated, naturalized.
