Postponing interview process? England to USA

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, me and my fiance have just reached the stage where the NVC has forwarded info to London Embassy and he just got the letter in the mail with instructions for setting up interview and all that. He just got a new job in the field he wants to work in when he comes to the US and would like to work a year at the job so that it looks decent on a resume and he'll have some experience to make it easier to get a job in the US. Would it be possible to postpone the visa interview for at least 8 or 10 months? (Given that you get 6 months to move to the US after approval).

I've never seen anyone delay it that long.

 

If you're happy to be apart that long, why not get married, file for CR1, takes a year, so will be done after he's had his year working. With the CR1 you can enter the US and work immediately rather than waiting months for AOS with the k1.

I will look into the CR1, thanks!

Agreed, k1 visa needs to be issued within 4 months of i129f approval, after that the k1 approval is invalid. In some cases when, the COs may extend its validity beyond 4 months but highly unlikely for the case you mentioned.

 

As said, CR1 may be the best way to go.
