Hi everyone I'm new here. I want to file a I-129F for me fiancé. He's from Lebanon but lives and works in Dubai. I went there in May for three weeks and made engagement. How do I go about doing this, how much does it cost, and how long it should take for him to get a visa? I really need help. I'm very ignorant to these proceedings. Thank you in advance.

Time for some research! There are guides to help you along and give you most of that information. Read up and then you can ask questions if you still have some. This part works better from a PC and not a cell phone

Best of Luck!

I believe the first check/payment that is sent with your petition to the Dallas Lockbox is $340 (??)

The USCIS Dallas Lockbox

For U.S. Postal Service:

P.O. Box 660151
Dallas, TX 75266

For Express mail and courier deliveries:

Attn: I-129F
2501 South State Highway 121 Business
Suite 400
Lewisville, TX 75067

Then medical exam fees and visa application fee comes later at embassy stage.

Your welcome

Welcome!!! Yes you definitely want to do all your research and homework! Depends if you will get a lawyer or not.

If you don't it's ok, I think you can do it, just make sure you do the research, and making sure you have everything!!!!!

Once you file, it really depends which USCIS office it goes to. They say & I've heard the Texas service center takes time. California

is usually faster. Unfortunately you don't have control over that, but it's good to know!

My fiancé is also from Lebanon, and lives there. We sent out our papers the end of March, and our petition got approved the end of July, So now I'm waiting

for petition to go to NVC (State Department) which they assign a case number and gets ready to go to the Embassy.

Once it arrives in the Embassy they will inform your, well your fiancé on what he needs to do and prepare for the interview.

If you need any help feel free to send me a direct message.

Good luck and welcome! :goofy:
