Just wanted to thank the VJ community for the invaluable information and guides - we have followed all of the advice on here and had no problems whatsoever.

All the other same-sex couples out there: if we can do it, so can you!! :)

Best of luck to all and thanks again for the continued support!

Congratulations to you both...

So good to hear there were no complications with your petition... Of course we have had some worries if there has been any problems being same sex especially in the interview process... We are still waiting for our NOA-2 but now feel there will not be any problem on the same sex issue on our application...

Thanks for your word of encouragement...

We wish you all the best!!

That is so great to hear. My fiancé's interview is Jan 23. We are truly hoping for no issues because it is a same sex K1 visa application in Colombia.

Congrats on the engagement. We are a same-sex couple too. The USCIS and Visa Interview were no different from heterosexual interviews. The Visa interview took place in a 'homophobic' country and it was just like the regular interviews.

Congrats to everyone and best of luck in your visa process! Take our case as an example that all you have to do is have the paperwork in order and it won't matter if you are gay, straight, black, white, or purple!

We were married on 10 Nov 2014 and are my husband (!) just days away from receiving his AOS biometrics appointment and the temporary permission to work. They were sent out to us but returned to USCIS by the US postal service after some issue with delivering them. Either way this only took about 2 months after submitting the AOS paperwork.

2015 is looking good! Best of luck to all! :)
