Recommended Posts

This is the list/cover letter of everything we have to submit. Is there anything else anyone can think of? If we book our vacation back to my homeland in December in the next few days, I'll tack that onto the end also. For the things that have not stated the amount of pages included, I'm waiting on my husband to locate them. Thank you in advance.

Nature of the submission: I-751 ORIGINAL SUBMISSION

To Whom It May Concern:

Enclosed, please find my Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, and supporting documents.

Contents include:

  • Payment in the amount of $590.00; this includes the $85 biometric fee.
  • Cover letter

Looks good, except that a 37-page lease is excessive.

Have you each created wills? They're even more valuable in life than as ROC evidence.

06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

Y'know, it entered my mind, "Surely they don't want to know about the agreement on the bed bugs policy of the lease?" ha! I'll shorten that to a few pages. Thanks, TBone.

No wills yet, unfortunately. We're onto it! :)
