Please help! February 2015 CSC filer

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone, I filed for K1 fiance visa on February 26th. I got my NOA1 on March 3rd. Then I got an RFE on April 2nd. The RFE was to provide more information on the dating website me and my Fiance used to meet each other, muslima.com and to provide more information on the circumstances in which we met. We sent in an RFE response containing the terms of the website clearly stating how its not a marriage broker, and sent in information of how we met in person on both times, and how our relationship evolved. Me and my fiance met 2 times, each lasting around 3 weeks. We have no red flags, same age, same religion, same ethnicity, no criminal background. The uscis website shows that they received the RFE response on April 10th, but they did not respond yet. I am genuinely worried. On the website it said to contact them if they do not respond before June 9th. If anyone has any advice on what to do, that would be greatly appreciated. And I forgot to mention here that this is California Service Center as well.

I got my NOA2 after sending RFE for the exact same dating site issue 4 days before their 'due date' of 60 days.

they received a response March 23, due date was May 22, I got NOA2 on May 18.

This happens. As everybody always says here- do not look at other's timelines and assume yours will be the same. I was so convinced that the response takes up to 2 weeks, that the 8 weeks wait was pure agony.

You will get it shortly, no worries

I am not sure if I will have a RFE from my K-1 (reason being) because in my K-1 visa application I also say that me and my fiancee met online on a dating website, I wonder if I have to send a RFE soon the website we used it's free, in case I have a RFE, what kind of letter or info did you send along to the immigration?

Guys thank you so much for your responses. I just checked the case status online it turned to approved! :dancing: So I guess do not worry if they delay working on your case, its very frustrating but you have to have patience :) Bublik, I guess me and you share the same experience so you know how it is...tine71 dont worry if they give you an RFE...if they do just print the terms and conditions of the website highlighting the part where it says its not a marriage broker...and send in a page describing how you met in person and have the petitioner sign it for additional proof..thats what I did
