All I have a question. I have not been able to sleep. My mind is racing. So, I know a series of next steps are bound to happen but, my question is, will the London US Embassy on schedule my fiance's appt once he is ready or when they so desire? I ask because my fiancé is a hospital pharmacist and he is currently finishing up a program with his hospital to be specialized in working with cancer patients. His program finishes in January but he will do some things afterwards. So, if he does not plan on coming until April which is that is when we hope to marry, is there a way we can slow the process so that he can have an interview date in January or February? I know there are time limits on everything . I think once your case is approved you have four months to schedule an interview..? Advice!

There is a London guide pinned at the top of this forum that lays out what happens. Most are looking for ways to speed it up, but by reading it you should be able to see how to slow it down.

Yes London picks your appointment date. But the beneficiary has to do three things before London will schedule. So delay doing those things and you drag the process out. For sure delay the medical because it starts the clock for when the K1 visa expires---six months from the medical date.

Yes the approved I-129F petition also has an expiration date on it--four months. It is printed on the NOA2. But London will extend the validity of the petition easily if the beneficiary brings a new letter of intent written by the petitioner to his interview. It's really a non-issue.

I know my case is odd ball! But, my sweetheart has worked so hard for his oncology certification and he is almost there. I don't want to stress him out as he needs to focus for his exams he will have to take. I suspect anyhow looking at other's timelines getting to the NVC and ultimately Embassy takes a little season too. I don't expect him to interview until January anyhow . He will still be in the time frame too. Thanks for the advice! I have not slept all night lol!
