Hello All. I am the not so new newbie. A few years ago, I was on here filing for my then fiance. We didn't quite make it to the altar. Visa was denied because we needed to prove that it was a relationship of love and not for immigration purposes (oh yeah, marijuana ban also).But let's just say " GOD has a way". The relationship didn't last through the year ban. I found out things about him through family and friends so I bowed out gracefully. Some time later, I met the beautiful soul that I am honored to call my husband. We were married in December and now my Visa Journey with him begins.

The reason I call myself a newbie is because I can't seem to find my way around this site anymore. I need HELP <_< . Please feel free to help me navigate while on this journey. Help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks everyone and may GOD bless you all as you journey through!!!

@ Jawaree...

My husband knows all about that last one...I don't hide things from him about my life. He knows the good, the bad and the ugly...lol. That is what makes him so wonderful...He doesn't judge me.

That last filing ended with him being denied for failing to prove that this was not a relationship for immigration purposes only and admitted use of marijuana (I was never clear on whether he failed the drug test or not). After all of that, I found out from one of his family members that he was pretty much living with another woman in Ja...And when ANOTHER woman contacted me and directed me to a social site where I found him (single, younger than his actual age and looking for a relationship)...THAT WAS IT!!! I received a letter some time after that stating that the case was closed.

navigation? think like a Table of Contents,

but

is quite clear

when on a PC, running a real web-browser.

Handphone browsers SUCK for learning things, doing things, here at VJ.

Using a handphone? Unplug it, remove the battery.

Same problem for most feckless tablets...


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

Whoa Nelly ! Want NVC Info? see http://www.visajourney.com/wiki/index.php/NVC_Process

Congratulations on your approval ! We All Applaud your accomplishment with Most Wonderful Kissies !

After posting this topic, some informer decided to report back to my ex. Well, the truth is what it is INFORMER... Perhaps you should focus more on your journey and less on mine INFORMER.
