Seems like you got someone who was completely inexperienced, and who tried to hide it by being rude and demanding. When I went through I was also standing in I think two different (but short) lines before I was directed to the incorrect window, had to stand in a third line, and then someone reluctantly took my case and opened my envelope. I wonder how unusual K1s are.

Yeah sounds as if they are unusual!! Or they’re just lazy, lmao

Wow is right! We arrived on the same date, but my POE was Dublin via pre-clearance, but since I was in secondary for over 1hr30m, I nearly missed the flight! Immigration sucks everywhere!

Right? Unreal, lol!

My husband came thru JFK and he was out in 45 minutes from the time the plane landed; they took his envelope stamped his passport and said welcome to America. I think it's an ####### who wants to make someone's day as shitty as he is.

I'll second that, I still can't believe they didn't refused me entry into Jamaica after losing my cool with the Immigration office. :)

They really, really do. After the #### we have to go through to even get to POE, they should be nice to us and not make our lives hell! Lol

He was a real bad officer. But from just observation alone before seeing him, he seemed nice. Haha jokes on me - either way! I’m here so all is good

Yeah, it's funny how you forget all that #### once you're here and planning a wedding! 8 days until ours, and I'm only starting to fill out the AOS paperwork. How long did it take you guys?

It took us about three weeks , because I wanted to have a clear understanding of the instructions.  It is very overwhelming once you start putting it together. At least for me :)

Hey, anyone who's had any experience with getting a learner's permit for driving (before EAD/AP/AOS approval)? I thought I couldn't do that yet but when I checked the NYS DMV website it seems that the requirements are the same as for getting just a state ID (which is what I was initially going for).


Swedish/American couple, met at university, eventually filed the I-129F petition in 2017.

I’ve actually been looking into this too. I already have a UK license and thought I couldn’t get one here until after AOS but I’m reading different?

I was looking into it just yesterday and it seems once you have enough proof or can prove who you are you can get a learner's permit.  But we are planning on visiting them next week, so I'll have more to say after that.

Yes exactly. I didn't have enough proof when I first looked into it but now that I have bank statements and renter's insurance, I think I qualify. I just thought it might be a good idea that when I go there I know what I'm applying for since there's like a 10 question test for the learner's permit 😄
