thanks everyone, there were no surprises to us. she had to wait for quite sometime for her interview. they asked her very simple questions like what is my job, and when did i come to the US. the best advice is to prepare for everything. They did ask for new evidences. my fiance gave them new photos of us and family together in April and May of this year. now we only have to wait for the Visa so i could buy the airplane ticket. the interview only took 15 minutes, but she had to wait for 3 hrs prior to the interview.

As Lucky would say, buy hangers. :thumbs:

We have had a couple of very mild winters here in NorCal the past couple of years. We've also had a mild summer, so far. Even so, there have been very few days where my wife and step-daughter didn't think it was very cold outside - even today! I can only imagine what a shock an Anchorage winter would be for them. Buy her a really warm parka, some snow pants, and a cozy pair of mukluks! :whistle:
