I-130: Approved! wohoo! February 17, 2016

NVC Received: March 07, 2016

Sent IV Package : March 28, 2016 We got a checked list :ranting: - NVC lost English translated police certificate :protest: wuah! delayed us 1 month!

Received Instruction and interview appointment letter- June 29, 2016

Interview in Cairo August 29, 2016 :idea: - Interview went well, Approved :) wohoo!!!! *I (petitioner) attended interview with my husband. Overall interview went well, (with the help of this forum) questions asked to me When did I arrive Egypt? How many times have I visited? Do I live in Egypt? Questions asked to my husband Where did we meet? How did we connect?(this is what she asked, i guess she meant how did we stay in touch) Did we have a wedding?

Visa ready August 31, 2016.

There is no affidavit form to marry your girlfriend will have to get it done when she's in USA

I married in my husband country and brought everything I needed with me I went to dr embassy in ny to have the documents translated but my lawyer was the one that did the affidavit saying I am free to marry

Every country is different she needs to see what your country requires to marry aboard

I love my husband ?‍?‍?

Married June 2016

Por siempre y para siempre Mi amor

I second the above post. It's helpful to have the US citizen on visa journey. In this case your girlfriend. The process can be easily confused and an added language barrier can make it impossible.

Plus why risk a possible miscommunication? There's so much at stake.
