Hi Everyone!

I am a new member to the forum and was recommended to this site by a friend who has recently married her long-distance love and has been through this process!

My name is Shazza and the love of my life lives in NY.

Unfortunately I live in Australia and am unable to spend each day with my soulmate, hence why we have applied for the K1 fiancee visa!

My partner was here in Australia in October so we quickly put together our application and sent it in when he returned home.

So far I don't have much news re. the visa;

We have received the USCIS Acceptance confirmation email and the following letter receipt notice (Form I-797).

I am under the assumption that we are not going to hear anything new for a while and that the visa will be at the USCIS Texas service centre for at least the next few months.

Unfortunately I am experiencing difficulties in checking my case status as when I enter my receipt number an error message appears saying: 'At this time USCIS cannot provide you with information for your case. Please contact the NCSC 1 (800) 375-5283 for additional information.'

I have also tried calling with my receipt no. and receipt the same automated message.

I have been reading through some of the forums and can see that this is a common issue that people are having at the moment so hopefully it is nothing to be too concerned about?

Anyway, I just thought i would introduce myself and update people on my situation :)

Good night from Australia! :clock:

Hello,

One thing I can tell you is if you are reasonable and rational, you will benefit so much that at some point you will realize this was a good thing you did joining this site while going through brutal immigration or other processes.

To start with K1, I would recommend to read contents on these two links:

- http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1guide

- http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1flow

This will give you some idea on the overall process and approximate timeline. Be aware this isn't bible and talks about general guideline. Each case is different and people end up with different experiences for reasons. Being prepared and proactive will help you to get out of this process in a reasonable time.

For now, don't worry, just keep checking every other day. Usually they run system updates and at times the system acts bit funny. Also end of the year, God knows what they are doing. Best would be if the petitioner can call keeping all info ready and only if he can reach an operator he may find an answer. I would recommend calling early in the morning and trying few times before getting frustrated (that happens a lot to all of us :-) )

Good luck

Thanks for your advice :) I have already found the information on here so helpful - it has definitely kept my stress levels at bay knowing other people are going through the same thing!

Ok Quick update:

I created an account on the USCIS website the other day to track my case and i selected to receive email updates.

This morning i opened my email and found an update that said that my case status has changed to 'received' and that we will receive a receipt notice (which we have already received- the first one anyway).

Anyway so the reason why i'm excited is because i can FINALLY check my case status on the website without an error message and I'm super excited because hopefully that means the wheels are in motion!
