Hi all,

I successfully filed for a fiancee visa without RFE's or anything. It was approved on the April 24, 2012 without any major hassles and the interview took 5-8 minutes total. The whole process took exactly 7 months from beginning to end. (CSC>Juarez). I got alot of help from users on this forum, thanks!

A few things i would recommend; is be really careful if you hire a lawyer. If your case is complicated and warrants a lawyer, do so. I met a lot of people in Ciudad Juarez that hired lawyers and they were given vasts amount of documents and didn't know how to make sense of out of it.

I helped some people while i was there. I was advising them to read through their documents and know where everything is, and what's included in the documents. One person didn't know what DS-260, DS-156 was. In the end your lawyer will probably not be permitted to enter he consulate.

Best thing to do is, file your paper work and you'll become inform of the procedures. When a consulate official asks you a question you know exactly which documents to refer to.

Ill be reading this post around 8pm pacific time in case someone has questions on K1 visa.. ill be glad to answer questions on the things I encountered.

Very nice thread, an actual offer of help, way cool.

I do agree that typically, with most government processes, once you have done your homework and filed the paperwork the process gets easier.

Congrats on your approval!

Yes, please do consider filling in your timeline, and updating your profile to show which location your I-129F petition went through, Vermont or California. Writing a review of your experience at CDJ is very helpful to those that will be going through there in the future. The reviews for each step of the way in your immigration journey will show up there in your timeline for others to see.
