    Congratulations.. What about couples who can't or DON"T WANT to have children? I think this is extremely discriminatory.

    Utah zoom marriage bypasses all of that. If I didn’t know what I was talking about I wouldn’t. Now, I don’t need to “pretend”. Back in 2020 Utah zoom marriage did not exist unfortunately which made us apply for K1. Good luck in your journey. I’m out

    Today after 426 long days, our case was approved! My case tracker app didn't give me a notification like it should have, and after yesterday's great result for my group (117500), I had some instinct about today and was checking all day. I had just absentmindedly opened up the app while I was on the phone with my fiancé, which was a pleasant surprise for both of us and a nice moment.

    Hey guys, I'm having a problem with the scan for June tonight. I had totals from earlier this evening but not broken down by groups. I had 75 total (39 approvals, 2 denials, 13 RFES, 21 RFER). Hopefully numbers went up slightly since then. I will post an update tomorrow morning by group. Sorry about this--if anyone else has other updates please do share in the meantime!

    My ROC was also approved with no interview and we have no children and don't plan to. We were also never asked once throughout the whole process if we had children or were planning to. It's purely due to the individual IO and their bias. Some IO's do think that if a couple has children, it's "stronger evidence". But not every IO operates like that (and they shouldn't because the whole point is to be objective and adjudicate each couple on the basis of their unique circumstances) beause as pointed out, there are many couples who can't have children or don't want to. Not having children does not mean a couple is less in love or is less legitimate or is less bonafide than those do.

    Hey Guys, Thanks God my journey in the vawa process has come to end and I'm going to share with you all my timeline: - 2017 - I got married. - August 2018 - Sent I130,I485, I765, I131 - September 2019 - my ex-wife and I went to the interview - November 2019 - I filed for Vawa while the interview decision was still pending - December 2019 - Received a RFE for my good moral character, I sent the police record for all the places I lived in my entire life. I sent this information the same month. - January 2020 - I filed for the divorce - February 2020 - I got divorced - October 2020 - Sent the renewal for my I765 (pending I485) - November 2021 - I360 card is being produced - November 2021 - I765 (based on I360) approved - Card received same month - December 2021 - I765 (based on pending I485) approved for two years - Card received same month - February 2022 - I360 Approved - July 2022 - I485 RFE for medical exams - September 2022 - I485 card is being produced ( no interview) - September 2022 - Green card in hand valid for ten years I wish you all the best. This forum helped me a lot and gave me support while I read t that I was not the only one in the same situation. I hope your cases will be approved soon. I will come back with a post again in three years when i file the application for my citizenship. Thank you all and good luck.

    Nothing we're saying is in contradiction. His chart is showing you the average time from I-129F submission to K-1 interview. My "baseline" was in reference to the time it takes the I-129F to be adjudicated alone, which according to USCIS (and verified by many members here, if you look through the Progress threads) is 13.5 months. So, to recap: CrazyCat's chart says 520 days from start to finish, I posit roughly 400 from start to USCIS approval. Following USCIS approval, your petition will spend roughly 2 months at NVC (60 days) before being forwarded to the Embassy, which may-or-may-not have a significant backlog. Already we're at 460 days; 2 more months (60 days) doesn't sound unreasonable at all, particularly for certain Embassies (like Warsaw) which was already booking January appointments back in June. If I could give any advice, it would be to definitely spend some time looking through the forums here to get a feel of the time you're looking at overall; we're all here to help and give honest updates. For myself, I went into the process thinking it would take only 9-12 months because that's what I read on an outdated, random, pre-COVID website. When I actually got on VisaJourney and saw the charts, I refused to believe them at first, but lo and behold they were far more accurate than anything else. You can't rush the process unless you have a valid expedite, so as others have said, focus on sending good, quality evidence that will make the Adjudicator's job easy when it's your turn.

    End relationship

    Sorry, having a hard time drumming up much sympathy for you for a comment like that. Women are PEOPLE, not commodities. Also, when you marry someone with children, it is not out of line for them to put their children before you. I knew the deal when I got married to a man who has a daughter living in another country. We put her needs always above mine. Always. I'm a grown woman who can take care of herself; children need parents. If you can't accept that, you should not date/marry a mother unless her children are adults and out of the house. Take a break from dating/marrying/acquiring and recycling sugar babies and work on yourself. I'd give the same advice to anyone coming out of a marriage.

    I was in your shoes in December 2017. I was in my early 20s, originally from what you call “third world country,” an international student in China for many years. I also met a special American guy and wanted to visit him in the US. I was 8 months away from graduating from my college and I also had good intentions and no desire to overstay my B-2 visa and become without status in the US. I went to Beijing after thorough preparation, I spent lots of money for the trip and the interview and I was denied on the spot. I wasn’t even asked ONE question. I was denied within one minute of my interview. All I said was, “Hi! How are you?!” The Consul smiled and said, “I’m doing great! How are you?” But all she saw was a young woman from a low income country with no strong ties to her country of origin (no house, no employment, no husband, no kids, etc.) and she just denied me immediately. I brought lots of evidence and none of it was requested. Truth is consulates and embassies are harsh. People mostly get denied and approval rates are low for someone as young as you. The only people from my country who I know were approved for B visas were mostly people in their 40s who had history of travel to Europe and other high income countries, had a huge family back home and stable long term jobs. I have no doubt that your intentions are pure and you don’t plan to cheat, but Consuls don’t give out visas based on promises. They look at facts. Being 1.5 years away from graduating is not enough. In my opinion, you’re being a little over confident by thinking you have high chances of getting a B visa in your current position. It is highly unlikely that you will succeed. @Powerpuff gave you wonderful advice. Thailand is a beautiful destination and the best shot for you to see your boyfriend soon. I’m sure you can’t wait to see him anyway. After your vacation together, your partner can submit I-129F and the wait for K-1 begins. I was crushed after my B-2 denial and I ended up graduating, going back home and asking my partner to move to my country of origin, so that we can date some more and live together before getting engaged. We are now happily married in the US and all is well. I wish you all the luck in the world! I truly hope you and your partner will see each other soon! I know the pain of long distance well. Warmly, aurelius22

    Ask for a supervisor. Permanent residents have the same rights, whether they have 2-year or 10-year GC. If the DMV supervisor is also clueless, go to a different DMV office. If that doesn't work, contact your congressperson or senator to ask for assistance.

This week the USCIS touched approximately 589 Cases, a bit of a drop from last week. Unfortunately, we have a holiday weekend coming up, so it's possible that USCIS workers took a vacation early.

    Not true at all. My AOS we had no children together. No interview. My ROC we had no children together. No Interview. My N400 we had a daughter together and the IO did not count her at all or want to even see her BC. She wanted more joint/co mingled items. Every now and again we get someone with and IO who says and does silly things like the above. Good thing most of the time the files need to be approved by a supervisor and not he wing nut who says things like that.

    Asylum from what? Asylum has definitive criteria, not just that access to a US immigrant visa interview has been complicated by her country’s own actions. If she is Ukrainian, that’s totally different, and yes, she could seek asylum via the program the state department has for Ukrainians.

    We filed 8/14 for my wife’s RoC. A few days ago got waiver of biometrics letter, which was a nice surprise. Today we got approval letter on RoC! No interview, new card in the mail within 60 days. 22 business days from receiving to approval. We are shocked…was planning on year+ wait.

    JULY 2021 I-129 K-1 FFILERS

    There were no updates from today or any approvals from Monday.

Here's what came through from yesterday: Monday Updates: 107000 - 1 RFES (1 new / 0 in progress) 107500 - 1 RFES (1 new / 0 in progress) 108500 - 1 RFES (1 new / 0 in progress) 109000 - 1 Withdrawal (1 new / 0 in progress) 110500 - 4 RFESs (4 new / 0 in progress) 111000 - 1 RFES (1 new / 0 in progress) 111500 - 2 RFESs (2 new / 0 in progress) 112000 - 1 RFES (1 new / 0 in progress) 112500 - 2 RFESs, 1 Expedite(Approved) (3 new / 0 in progress) 116000 - 1 RFES (1 new / 0 in progress) 09/19/22: 16 Total Updates: 14 RFESs, 1 Withdrawal, 1 Expedite(Approved)

    Why does this sound like such a "checklist to get my visa" comment..? Why not just let your GENUINE relationship develop organically and you will automatically have this evidence..?

    Welcome to Visa Journey. People "hear" a lot of inaccurate information before coming here to VJ. I suggest you trust the advice given by knowledgeable members like @powerpuff. I also suggest you read the guide section here on VJ.

    May 2021 I-129F K-1 FILERS

    If anyone is interested. It seems that USCIS is picking up steam. after slump in July, in August USCIS is almost on levels from 2021 (see blue bars => those are closed cases). They are even closing old RFEs (red bars in old months are finally getting smaller) . On the second screenshot, you can see only NOA1 cases from past months up to September this years. Sadly trend of leaving people behind continues, there are still significant number of cases that are left open in March, April, May.

    RFE for proof of divorce (help)

    Send the entire divorce decree. What did the RFE ask for? A wise person would send EXACTLY what they requested.

    Hi, I want to give you a little advice because I am seeing a pattern that happens a lot on this board with people who have situations with difficult circumstances. While it is good to have hope please do not use that hope to ignore advice and give yourself unrealistic expectations.. There have been numerous posts made in this thread by very experienced members of VJ (some have been on here for years) and they are all telling you the same thing....your brother can not stay in the US while you file the I-130 for him. He is just not eligible to adjust status through you. If it was a spouse of a parent, it would be a different story. What we often see is people wanting something so bad they gloss over the numerous advice of experienced members only to latch on to a tiny Hail-Mary suggestion (which often is not feasible) that they think will change the result. An I-601A would be a futile attempt. But to give you an idea of how the process goes, let me give you an overview of the challenges. First, siblings are not immediate relatives in the eyes of US immigration. This has been stated several times already. So that means a visa will not be available for your brother for a number of years. It will take 15 to 20 years before a visa becomes available for him. Next, your brother would still have to leave the US to interview for the visa. Visas are given outside the US, not inside. And once he leaves, his 10 year ban would immediately begin. Now, if you think he can do the other option and adjust status so he can stay here, unfortunately no. He can not adjust status through you. Spouses, minor children, and parents can adjust through you, but not your siblings (for now). I think the best path forward is for you and your family to accept that your brother can not stay here the way you would like. Him overstaying was a big mistake and he must accept the consequences. If he does not want to be separated from family he could have just kept is visitor visa and kept visiting the US until he qualified under the F4 category to move here. You can consult an immigration attorney if you deem necessary. But you have gotten all the proper advice you can get in this situation. I think those options would have been mentioned already if they were feasible. Now it is getting to the point where the phrase "throwing things against the wall to see what sticks" comes in handy. The OP was given proper advice and that means there is no path for their brother through them. Sometimes this is what it is.

    I will save you $10K and make you a profit by giving my 2 cents of advice. Use the guides and resources here on VJ and DIY. Majority of the people here (including myself) have successfully completed the K1 themselves with no help for a lawyer or firm. You have already made the first step by discovering this site. All you have to do is read, read, read. Here is a help in the right direction... https://www.visajourney.com/guides/
