Meeting in person within 2 years requirement

Greetings,

Although I have only recently became a VJ member, I have been reading many of the posts on this great site for a year now. The information from the members has been a great help in this process. My Fianee and I are at the Interview stage and I needed some clarification to the "Meeting in person within 2 years" requirement" ...

Yoshi and I met only once in Hawaii in early Febuary of 2004. Although I submitted and received approval for the I-129f Petition in Oct. 2005/ Jan. 2006 respectively, Her interview did not get scheduled until mid March. Will this cause any problems at the interview ???

At what point is the two year period still valid? At the time of the NOA1 approval; Case number assigned; Embassy receiving the case from the NVC; Visa interview???

Please help me with this. I am at my wits-end :help:

Thanks in advance.

You must have met within two years at the time of your filing (so approx. receipt of NOA1), so it sounds like you are safe.

Just as a point of clarification, your timeline says you did not get your NOA1 until Jan and you sent your petition in Sept but I think you meant you got your NOA2 in Jan. If I'm correct in my assumption then you might want to correct it, it helps to keep the stats on the site accurate :)

Best of luck to you!!

OH THANK GOD! And thank you James_and_miranda for the quick response... That is such a relief. :dance:

Actually I received my NOA2 just 6 days after receiving the NOA1... To clarify... the orginal I-129f was submitted in Sept 2005, but returned because I was missing the letter of intent to marry... I then resubmitted in Oct 2005... I'll correct my timeline... thanks.
