Im very happy now!!! Wow.. Finally I will be with my Love soon..:-)

I had my interview yesterday Sept. 17.. my appointment schedule is at 7:30am. Me and my Son got there 6:35am.

We went right away to the guard coz there is no queue for the immigrant/fiance visas.

He ask for our passport, appointment letter and DS forms.

He told me to enter in the 3rd door. it was the xray machines. security check.

Then We went outside, there was 3 booth.. I waited for my turn.

She ask for my forms with the appointment letter and she gave it back to me, with my queuing number.

She told me to go to the next building and get in the 3rd door (security check again) and drop my forms in window 39.

We take our seats and waited. at around 7am our number flashed on the board. for finger printing.

Left hand first except the thumb then right hand. lastly my thumbs. you will state your full name and birthdate.

waiting again.. but we enjoyed watching TV, cartoon network while waiting.

Around 9:30 our number flash again. for the Filipino Consulate.

I greeted him and He greeted us nicely. He ask me to help him organize our papers,

so he ask me for my receipt first and my BC, NBI, Cenomar and my Fiance's I-134 and 2011 ITR (1040 and W2). He DID NOT get the 2010 ITR, pay stubs, employment letter, bank statements...

Then He ask for my Son's receipt and BC.

QUestions:

- Me and my Sons name and bday.

- How did we meet with my fiance?

- When was the last time we met in person.

He ask if we have pictures, its in an Album so i just showed it to him. Then he told me to show it to the American Consul too.

He DID NOT ask for evidences of our ongoing relationships.. I have with me ( YM chat logs, emails, skype call logs (print screen) , remittances )

Around 10:45am, our number flash again. for the American Consul.

I greeted him with a big Smile and He greeted me too and ask how am i doin.. hehe

His nice too.. though I heard some applicant that he denied..

He scan for my finger print then swear to tell the truth.

Questions:

-My name and bday

- My petitioners name

- My relationship with my petitioner.

- His job.

- Where is he working right now.

- If i am working and What.

- how did we meet?

- If we meet in person and what we did.

- and who is the kid beside me.. hehe.. My Son..

And He told us our papers are okay and we got approved!! Yepey!!! So happy...:dance::dance:

and he said Goodluck!! I told him Thank you so Much!!

He DID NOT ask for our pictures or evidence of ongoing relationship.

He told us to wait for our number again. so we wait another few minutes.

They called us by name this time.. Window 70. He said that they will just mail our visa. no need to go to window 69?, if im not mistaken.. hehe..

Hope to get my visa within this week.

Wow!! Our interview went so smooth and easy!! Thank God..

We went to Quiapo Church the day before and attend the Mass even if its been raining and flooding everywhere.. But its all worth it..

I Do BELIEVE in PRAYERS!! :dance:

How long it took the whole process? My bf is in hawaii too we are talking on taking some steps too but wer discusing wether to go on a fiance or spouse visa? Thanks if you could help

You can see on my signature, its been 4 months since we got our NOA1.. We sent our Petition April 12, got NOA2 approved July 25. POE will be October 6.. so its less than 6 months to be with my Fiance..

K1 visa is faster than Spousal visa.. Since you are in Hawaii. your service center is California, and they are way so fast approving petitions right now. some only take 2 months to get NOA2..

So if you like to be with each other soon, I can suggest the K1 visa.. Goodluck!!:dance:
