hi...how many of u guys quit their work and made actual travel plans priopr to the k1 interview???

or submitted proof of intent to marry in the US at the interview...

Thats kind of a risky thing to quit your job and buy tickets but Im sure its happened before. You actually need to bring a recent intent to marry letter with you to the interview. Is that the proof you're talking about?

Well look at my timeline. I already quit my job in january for the end of april. And since we are touched twice, I am kinda hopefull, that it will be perfect with ending my job and then get the flight to the states.

But I wont book a flight until you know your interview date.

The day the embassy will tell me the time, then I will book a flight right away.

It's risky to quit your job, yeah.....but depending on how long before you have to let your boss know, it's worth it. :thumbs:

Am sure there are those that have made travel plans prior to the interview, We won't make plans until the interview date.

Quiting your job is up to you - depends on type of work, and of course, how much money you have.. Some give notice to quite at a future date.

Proof of intent is required/suggested in the guides to bring/submit with Packet 3.

(Assuming the OP is the beneficiary)

It depends on how quickly you plan to leave here after you get your visa. Some people leave right away, others take a couple months to finish up buisness before leaving. If its customary where you are to give a months notice, Give the notice as soon as you receive the visa and make flight arrangments for just after that.

My situation is the same, one month notice, and for sure I will be giving it only once I have the passport with the visa in my hand. All in all, looks like the right thing to do, as I've seen people who get stucked after a succesful interview and wait for the visa for months. Of course, we all pray that such thing will not happen to us.

I wish you all the luck, and the right choices :)

Hi pinky :)

I'd say it depends on your situation. As someone said: how much notice you have to give, how long you can afford with no work, how soon you are able to tie ends etc.

I need to give only 2 wks notice. God willing, I will do that tomorrow - AFTER I pass my interview :) :) :)

I've already planned to work untill the end of this month and fly out only a few days after that. Asked abt ticket, but couldn't book it yet - don't wanna end up paying it for nothing if, haven forbid, I don't get my visa tomorrow. Ain't that rich! :)

Your timeline says your case is on its way to the embassy so you might not be too far away now but... be wise i.e. patient!

Here is for you not to have to wait much longer!

Blessings,

ausqueen

I am still working now!! haha :D. Of course I have given my resignation letter to my boss last month as my "one month notice", right after I passed my interview. I decided to keep my job until I get my visa in hand because... no one could actually be 100% sure that everything would go well at the interview, and my job has been doing great in keeping me "sane" while getting through the Visa process and being away from my man... so i thought...just in case it didn't go as smooth as I wanted...at least I had my job to hold on to.

And I did not book flights before the interview either.. I just did it like...last week hahaha :D

my wife had already inform her company she was leaving, but with no fixed date so any extra time the visa would be delayed means she would still be working, and also she had a critical position her duty was to find a replacement a good 3 months prior so she could train the replacement to handle her post. So actually the company ends up hire 2 persons the replace her post. that's to show you how much my baby was being overworked. We wanted to fly back together so I took a vacation there, I WAS BOLD yeap i bought a return ticket for her also, we already knew she got the visa though but didn't received the passport yet. As a precaution both tickets had a clause in it, If I change the date I only have to pay $50. so it wasn't too bad but glad the passport came in 2 days before our flight.

We are in the same situation as Nikita2Charles. My fiancee told her company that she was leaving "sometime" but didn't give a definite date. I think it may depend on your financial situation and how good your relationship is with your boss or company.

Quiting is risky-business. Your future, as well as your fiance future requires that you have a job. If your fiance arrives, and you don't have a job it will be difficult for the both of you to have a stable future. I woudn't suggest quiting a job.
