K2 Timeline for child only

My fiance entered the US November 30th on a K1. We were engaged and have begun the AOS in mid February. On May 29th we filed a DS-160 for her child to come over on a separate K2 after contacting the consolate in Bogota and requisting follow to join for the child. Is there a specific Timeline or instruction on this type of immigration process? When should we send supporting documents? Is an interview required for a 6 year old child? Any other considerations we know already the father must sign special documents to allow the child to immigate? Thanks for your help!

The process is much the same as the k1 (medical, interview,  etc.).  You don't send support direct to the embassy but hand carry everything at the time of the interview

Any idea how long until we get a response with an interview? Less than 6 months or more? Thanks for your quick response. 

I assume you will book the interview in the same fashion as the k1.   Does the applicant not book there own interview?

Assuming the child is not yours, any issues with the other parent

We ran into a snafu today with the process. The list of required documents says we need to send original certified copies of the divorce decrees but unfortunately all of our documents are with immigration in Chicago after being sent in for the K1. It seems excessively long that they are holding on to these documents.

You will not get anything back fron the USCIS as original certified copies are not required for AOS
