Poll on K1

Timeline

No personal offense intended, but the survey is flawed.

First, the questions are strange. "Do you speak the same language as your fiance" can be interpreted as "native" language or in multiple other ways. The question about percentage of fees paid for immigration expenses gives no range (just 100% and then 75%, rather than 75%-100% or similar).

Next, the survey is mechanically flawed. An attempt to answer "Other" (by typing information into the blank) is met with "this question requires an answer."

Perhaps you should start a VJ poll that doesn't require stepping outside of VJ...


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

I never take offenses on the internets :lol:

"it's optional (of course)," though I appreciate your input.

What is the purpose of this "survey?" Is it for your own use? Are you going to share the final results of the survey with the respondents?

I believe that I will abstain from this optional exercise, thank you. :no:

lol, I tried... really did... but have to agree, the poll is flawed. I tried to enter USA for my spouse but it was an invalid format. Also, asking if we are from the same country/culture? No to the first, but maybe to the second, we're both gamers, and that's a culture... I was confused...
