Couple questions Regarding My K1

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

 

1) Do i have to include Proof of ongoing relationship to the I-129f package? or only proof of meeting in the past 2 years?

2) Found a lot of ppl saying that G-325a form is a must. Are they right?

3) What address should i add in Cover letter and letter of intent? is it a big issue if i dont add any? I saw someone saying on forum that i can skip it. just making sure.

4) Is a Cover letter a must? or just a plus?

5) Do i really need copies of ALL passport pages?

6) What is better address to ship the package to? Dallas or Lewisville? which will  proceed faster? 

 

Ps sry if something was already asked, most of the question were not clear to me. thx

1.  Proof of meeting 

2. eliminated 2 years ago

3.  No big deal

4 optional

5. No

6.  Depends on carrier you choose.   USPS send to po box.  FedEx, ups to physical address 


YMMV

What country/consulate?

Ongoing relationship evidence isn’t required with the I-129F but front loading is highly advised with certain consulates.

She is From Russia

I met her 3 times past 2 years. and made her a proposal already.

 

2) what should that mean?

5) if not all pages are need, which one do i take copies off? 

6) Thx, but my question was more at what address will my case proceed faster. for example if the main address is Lewisville, it makes sense to use this address.

 

Ps. can someone else answer this questions too? thx

2).  The requirement to submit the g325a was eliminated 2 years ago.   It means it is NO longer required 

 

5) ID page and any page with entry stamps if using as proof of meeting evidence 

 

6) as for speed of processing,  in a 6 month process what might a day difference mean.  If you send via FedEx or UPS you have no choice as to which address you send to.  If you send via USPS it is better to send to the PO box

Also

  • Moscow is not an embassy where extreme front-loading is required (all Russian immigrant and immigrant-intent visa applications are processed in Moscow); I'm sure Anastasia and I sent way more than we needed both with the I-129F and with what she carried to the interview.
  • Interview availability in Moscow is highly unpredictable, but you're a long way from needing to worry about that yet.

Why would you say that? does it rly takes longer than usually when you apply for someone in Russia?

Moscow is massively backlogged right now and working with very limited staff.

And seems to randomly take a month or so off from working on fiancé(e) visa applications to concentrate on other kinds of visas. There were no K-1 interviews in December, lots in January and February, and then none in March (and there were no opportunities to schedule one from about mid-Feb to late March). We had extremely fortunate timing on this, and Anastasia was able to schedule an interview as soon as the system would let her pick a date, but most people could not do this.

Yup...not a good position to be in. I can't blame them too much as they are so limited in their staff. They're overworked too.

 

btw, I want to like your post but no way I'm going to be the one to ruin the 666 reputation. ;)
