Thanks for the great news :) Can you post September as well? Perhaps next to October so that we can do a quick comparison.

It is under 2019 because USCIS uses the fiscal year calendar, I think in part due to some visas types (not K1, CR1 or IR1 visas) being capped at a certain number per fiscal year.

Agreed. You have to look at the totality of visas issued. As the DV closed in September there were 158 DV1 in August and 239 DV1 in September (with equal numbers for DV2 and DV3). As usually only 10-15 DV approved on other months, these higher numbers could easily show why other visas issues in August and September were down overall

can't compare dv lottery winners with spouse and finance

these are interviewed in certain times (after being drawn as winners)  and they are not part of the spouse and finance process which still have the same # of interviews a month

 

there were 1717 dv lottery visas

Thank you, another question,in your opinion, what are the approval chances for a k1 visa when the petitioner is 8 years older but still in child bearing years but already have children?

Eight years is not bad and being of child bearing age is important in Morocco

as far as having children already,  only matters that your income fits the requirements

issue would be 

Why not marry and do CR 1 so if you get pregnant again ,  he will have the green card and be able to work while u r on maternity leave?

K1 and AOS after marriage is taking quite a long time

In my case, there's good reason for trying k1 first, I know that cr1 is the best option as a whole but for my case , k1 makes the most sense initially. Income wise, I have no issues there for the requirement for k1.
