We Are Approved!!!

26 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I just got the email a few moments ago. We are approved!!! Thank you God. We are March filers and I was expecting more time to save extra money but I don't care. I am so happy! i am actually doing the happy dance. I sympathize with those who are still waiting and hope but I am still wondering if it is real myself. I am waiting a few more minutes so it will at least be 7AM and then I am calling my honey.

I thank all my fellow VJ'ers for all the help and information you so willingly spend your time to share. I will have more questions now that the moment of truth is here.

Good luck to all.

Congratulations on your approval. I applied in December and sent the documents to Vermont as this is the service center for my region. Unfortunetly we sent a check from the UK. THey returned it saying it must be a US check and to send it to Texas. They received it on Jan 14, 2013. The notified me that they sent it back to Vermont which I thought would do what they had to do and approve the I 129 F. I just received notice that it went back to Texas. I called last Friday and submitted to expedite my application and was told in 5 days we should hear a decision. Last night I received an email stating there are many cases and we should hear in 180 days. It has been 6 months and tossed back and forth and nothing happened.

I called today and again was given the run around. I am to call again on Tuesday to see if we can apply to have it expedited again. The wedding is scheduled for July 27th (37 days), family and friends are booked on flights, the hotel is booked and a lot of money is spent on the wedding.

We are now told that he may come over to visit but if we get married that is fraud and negates the application and we have to start all over again and it will have to wait. In the meantime we can't get married. He can come over to visit and show proof he has a residence in Scotland and a return ticket, they hopefully will let him in.

I am so frustrated and upset. What can I do?
