JUNE 2019 K-1 FILERS

49 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

For those who have just filed your I-129f application with USCIS, this thread has been created for your needs and to be with others experiencing different aspects of this journey. This is a place to ask questions and to share experiences. All are here to learn together. Good luck because this is a long process currently running 5-6 months from filing date for your NOA2 approval.

 

https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/K1_Process_V11.pdf

 

Also, since your application will go through several background checks this is a primer on what goes on with the background process.

 

I know it really sucks, but the best way to get through this is to lower your expectations and try not to compare your timeline to anyone else's. Don't forget that the people here on Visa Journey represent a tiny percentage of all the petitions the CSC must work through! When someone gets to your file you'll hear from them. Stay busy, talk a lot with your fiancé about non-visa stuff, don't forget to hang out with your friends, take up a new hobby, go to a sporting event, and your time will come! Good luck

 

Explanation why is it taking so long.

I'm getting ready to file my petition to my fiance as k1 visa. My lawyer is doing the final review. We should be ready for filing in about a week. Glad to see this topic. 🙂

Glad you have found us. You may want to change the sequence that the lawyer does "his/her" final review first and then you do the final...final review before submitting your application. We have seen some applications which have received a RFE (Request For Evidence) where something was missed by the lawyer. Be sure you have a complete copy of everything you are sending and that it travels via a traceable courier and that your payment can be verified either through a credit card, money order or personal check. Also, make copies of the monetary vehicle you use so you can trace the payment receipt.

 

We need a little housekeeping from you so we can answer your future questions. Many of our answers are predicated on the information you supply in your profile. When we look at the left column and can't determine your timeline OR your Embassy it's hard for us to give you a factual answer. Our answers will sometimes be tailored to a specific Embassy hence the reason for you to complete your profile. If you look at the profile of others here, they have a flag for their country, so it makes it easy for us to reply as we can quickly determine their Embassy. The country that should be used is the country where the interview will take place.

 

So, if you could help yourself out and complete your profile that sure would help us out when we want to reply to your question with factual information.

 

Go to the top right of this page select your name (it's on the upper right-hand corner)>my profile>[below your picture on the right column] edit my profile. Scroll to the bottom and fill in "Immigration Info". There now we can better serve you.

 

Once you finish that then return and you will see a flag in your profile. Select it and see what wonderful information will open up for you.

 

Thanks

You really don't need a lawyer, but I see now that you already retained him/her. I hope that the lawyer does well by you. I've seen so many that don't.

All applications for a K-1 visa is sent to the same location no matter where you are from.
