Submitted application

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I submitted my application for my Venezuelan fiancee on April 25. We were together for a week in late February in the Dominican Republic and will be together for 18 days in Punts Cana beginning next week. There are no red flags and nothing "weird" about our case. Is there any way for me to have an approximation, either from USCIS or anyone on here, about how long we can expect it to take before she and her 12 year old son have their visa? I really enjoy the site and there is so much great information on here and many of my anxieties have been allayed, so thank you.  (:

About 7 months for petition to get approved. 1 month for NVC till reaches Embassy and then it usually depends on the embassy but it’s about 2 months on average.

 

right now k1 takes 8 to 11 months on average.

 

congrats.

Forgive me for asking this, but what is AoS and RoC? If the Visa was approved 01.04.14, when did they get to the U.S.?

AOS is adjustment is status, roc is removal of conditions. I have no idea what you mean by the last question... who??

 

(oh you’re asking about @Roels signature I guess.)

You gave those dates and said the visa was approved on 01.04.15, so I am wondering when that person whose visa was approved got to the U.S.?

Thank you very much! 

Lol I don't even see my signature when I use VJ on the phone..  

 

Anyway. You're doing k1 route which means you really need to read what AOS and ROC are. Those are parts of the process in which you receive green card... k1 alone doesn't grant you any kind of permanent residency or work permits. 


K1

29.11.2013 - NoA1

06.02.2014 - NoA2

01.04.2014 - Interview. 

AoS

03.2015 - AoS started.

09.2015 - Green Card received.  

RoC

24.07.2017 - NoA1.

01.08.2018 - RoC approved.
