Recommended Posts

Starting the thread for January 2019 Filling - been through this process on the K1 journey all the way through an interview at the Mumbai Embassy last April 2018. We were stuck in AP and had a rare chance to spend 45-days together so we jumped ship and married in India (Nov 24th). So, here we are again going through the same process and praying that it goes faster.

 

Mailed: Dec 26th (tracked delivery on Dec 28th)

Notification: Pending

NOA1 & Service Center: Pending

 

Happy Journey!!

Our case was accepted January 4th and sent to Nebraska service center. I know they workload balance to keep volumes in line with workforce but hoping that we all get quick processing (feels better to think so anyways). 

 

Waiting for receipt to arrive in the mail but received text last Friday with case number.

Called today 1/4 because I haven't recieved a text or email notification. Recieved receipt number via phone and case is sent to Texas Service Center 

I'm glad you called. It's nerve wracking to wait for that notification but you'll receive receipt in the mail shortly.

We got the text today with the receipt number. I guess the letter will tell us which service center it will go to. 

The first three letters of receipt will tell you. Mine is LIN (Lincoln Nebraska).

Then mine is also Nebraska! 

I'm praying that it goes faster than the projection on my timeline. We just spent the last 18mths in the K1 process all the way to embassy and married after 8mths in AP.  It's crazy to think we're 8000+ miles apart and buying our first house together this week (he's just not allowed in the country where we own the home ha ha ha)!! 🙄

Oh my gosh, I really feel for you. How on earth do you cope?! I'm already struggling with the likelihood of waiting 14 months! Do you get to visit much? We try to see each other twice a year for 2.5 months or so each time if we can afford it. He's moving into our new house on Feb 1st, but I can't go to stay in it until late April (assuming CBP let's me in when I return. They like to haul me off to secondary every chance they get, but haven't refused entry yet!)

It's been tough but I have a busy career and a few fun teenagers to keep me occupied. He's been building farms to teach villagers how to make income and is beyond ready to go. We've traveled every 6mths or so between me going to our home in India (June 2016, April 2017, March 2018, Nov 2018) and meeting in Thailand (Oct 2016, Nov 2017) for vacation. My daughter is anxious to go back to Thailand so if this takes forever we may need to make another trip this summer with a few of her friends. Financially it's better if we just wait at this point since we're taking on a large mortgage and managing two households. Really, the US economy would soar if they'd speed up the process so we can spend our money at home instead of traveling all over the world!! 

 

What country are you traveling to and from? It's a blessing that you can stay 2.5mths at a time!!

It would definitely be better! I always tell them when they interview me at secondary that I make all money in the UK and bring it to the US to spend! 

 

I travel to and from the UK. He hasn't been here yet, we were planning for him to come in the Spring but its prohibitively expensive with all the other things we need to pay for now. So I keep going back and forth as my job is flexible enough that I can take three months off at a time and still have work when I go back to the UK. However, I work 7 days a week when I'm here to be able to have the funds to visit for the periods I do. Essentially, I have already given up my life in the UK, while I wait for my life in the US to start.
