Does this sound right for the K3 Visa (Mexico)?

A friend of mine is doing the K3 Visa process and she's doing it through a lawyer...the times her lawyer is telling her for the appt's seem a little too long and much different from when I did the process...I did the K1 Visa but I remember the K1 and K3 being very similar.

Her husband went to Mexico for his 1st appt that their lawyer set up for them...the appt was on May 2nd..they then got their approval letter May 22, so now their lawyer can set up the 2nd appointment. Their lawyer sets up their 2nd appt. for Aug 3rd and then after that they will have to wait 30-60 days for an approval.

When I did the K Visa process in 2007, it was nothing like that. We had an 'open appt' in Juarez, we missed a few things, so he got to go back and then after that, they said he had to apply for the i-601 waiver. We did that through infopass, once I made the appointment (online), we had an appt for the i601 waiver in 2 weeks. On that day of that appointment, my husband was approved, received his K1 Visa that day and then later that night we crossed the border.

Is the process still the same as it was back in '07 or has it completely changed? Should my friend do this process on her own or just listen to her lawyer and wait?

How did they get approved in less than 1 month? Approvals are taking 5-6 months. Is there some special condition with the case?

Not sure...he went to his interview and then a couple weeks later, he got an approval letter, then the lawyer set up an appt for the 2nd appt for Aug 3rd, then she said it could take 30-60 days to find out if he's approved or not.

Sounds like a scam of some sort. It wouldn't have been an approval letter unless he has special circumstances. It would have been the letter everyone gets saying the petition has been accepted and will be processed. Approvals don't come like i said for 5-6 months after filing the petition. I think this lawyer wants money and is doing something very strange.

Are you maybe talking about DCF, where you file directly with the embassy because both the US and foreign spouse live abroad?

Otherwise I agree, sounds weird, especially as a lawyer should know the K3 is obsolete, and a CR-1 should be filed.

I suspect it sounds weird because some facts are missing and terminology is incorrect. The spouse visa process starts with a US citizen filing a petition. When the petition is approved, the foreigner applies for a visa. Consular officers approve or deny visas. Potentially, the visa was denied and they filed a waiver. Regardless, it would be a CR1 or IR1 visa, not a K3. K3 is no longer viable. Get the actual facts and maybe we can help you.

NO, what you explained does not sound right but probably because it has not been properly explained.
