    Hi to all who found this post and are interested. We definately didn't mean to start anything we just thought we'd see if anyone had ever experienced this. Some of you may have seen us on Jim Hacking live and our experience is as we talked about with him. Our two main concerns have been first and foremost getting her to USA as a LPR. Second is and always will be not getting banned from any country at anytime. I truly found my soulmate and would commute for a lifetime if that's what it takes however we have obviously talked with Mr. Hacking as well as consulting with two other immigration attorneys. All agree, as we do, a CBP officer has the final decision at the time of entry who to allow in and why. This officer determined my wife was not moving on the day she presented at the border, true or not this was her decision and she provided my wife a B2 visitor visa instead of allowing the IR1. We are not POE shopping as my wife has a valid legal IR1. We don't agree she should have to resign her job as she can now work remotely and we will continue to lease our house in canada and keep a vehicle there as our youngest adult son will maintain the property and the vehicle so we have a home base to operate from when we go back to Canada to visit her family and our grandson. We have decided to take the legal advice and I will fly to Canada at the end of March to spend some more time with our grandson. My wife and I will then present her IR1 at one of the international airports prior to her expiry date and fly back to the states to move our belongings into the home we will build together. If we again run into problems she will again take whatever legal entry is offered. If she is unable to get her LPR status then we will start the entire process again after her current IR1expires. We have been informed on multiple occasions it could be more difficult to get if this one expires but it's really out of our hands and we have accepted that. We are in no way trying to game the system, or otherwise circumvent the rules and regulations of LPR status. We just want her to be legal to change careers in the USA if the offer ever presents itself. Again we are not POE shopping and will explain we believe perhaps there was a miscommunication on the 16th of February if necessary. My wife was coming into USA for a week while we look at property and was returning to Canada a week later to finalize the finer points of moving. Perhaps we misunderstood the requirements perhaps the CPB officer did, but we do and always will have ties to Canada and will spend as much time as legally offered with her family. She will be going back to Canada in 6 days. I will go up late March and we will return before April 17 through an international airport. I will post our experience here for those who want to know and or who may one day find themselves in a similar situation. Thank you all for the interest questions and suggestions. You are all great.

    To all who recommended the secondary inspection. Thank You . I went straight to their Atlanta office this afternoon. While the Officer I spoke with seemed sympathetic he unfortunately continuously told me there was nothing he could do. He did look at her IR1 Visa and the Visitor stamp and asked a few questions and repeated this is not a clerical error and this office can not assist. He did suggest we (she) attempt to enter again except this time try by air rather than ground. It is this officers opinion this is not a clerical error but a judgment call and he can not second guess another officer. He did admit the first officer(s) should have let her pass without a problem but again nothing he can do. He also informed me he cannot "look at her file" or assist in anyway other than to suggest she try again from a different port. I think we have decided to do just that. Since my wife was not handed any documentation of any kind and especially nothing stating any restrictions to enter on her IR1 we can not see how attempting again without proof of resignation or lease terminations in hand. We are also contacting another Immigration attorney to get reassured this is not going to cause long term problems.

    After the random home inspection at my husbands apartment in Lagos from the Consulate we have now received an update on CEAC website. Still says refused but date change have occurred 10/05/2021, Inspection 10/12/2021, date change 10/13/2021, date change 10/14/2021. Praying this is the home stretch. My husband was informed he should get a call from the consulate within the next few weeks.

    There is a big age gap for my husband and myself also. When the CO asked him why he chose to marry someone much older, he said he didn't think age was an issue, it's about finding the person that is right for you. The CO said good answer. His visa was approved amd he's been here since Jan. 22, 2021. Started working within 2 months. What matters is how many times she has visited you and the time spent together. Also make sure to have all your documents in very good order. Best of luck!

    To reply to your questions on my timeline: My wife and I got married in May, 2022, correct. We were located in Turkey together, but to make the process easier, we did an online marriage through Utah County, in the state of Utah. Following this, we immediately applied for I-130 at the end of May once we had the correct documents gathered. My wife lives in Russia, I am the US citizen and petitioner. The reason I put Warsaw as my embassy, is that currently all Russian applications are being routed to Warsaw, Poland by default, since Moscow embassy is not issuing any visas currently. After the I-130 filing for CR-1 type visa, I then also filed the I-129F form for the K3 visa. As you mentioned, the K3 visa is meant to 'expedite reunion' - but what I found via several posts on Visa Journey and Facebook were that many people were successful in getting their I-130 approved faster. On October 11th, my I-130 got approved (way ahead of people who didn't apply for K3), and then a few days later, USCIS sent me a note saying the I-129F application had been denied since the I-130 has been approved (this is what I expected and wanted to have happen.) Currently we are finishing our documents for the NVC review, and hope to have those reviewed and approved by end of December or early January.

    Hola Patty, gracias por el comentario que dejaste, lo borraron, pero lo pude leer en mi correo. No sabía lo del proceso del consultado, así que ahora lo tendré presente para hacer el proceso. Te cuento que ya recibí la residencia en poco tiempo, así que ya estamos más tranquilos con Jimmy y podremos vivir por siempre juntos 💖 Gracias!

    Hi all, I just wanted to stop by on here and thank everyone who has helped me on my journey to receive an ir1 through the Montreal embassy. After almost 3 long blood sweat and tear years… my visa is finally on the way. If I have any suggestion for the Montreal embassy people, I’d say to get your medical well in advance 2 to 3 weeks in advance from interview date. My interview was on Jan 25th and I will have my visa in 2 days by Feb 18th. I had my medical a week prior to interview and it still wasn’t there on time. I’m happy my journey is over with and I can FINALLY Begin my future in the USA. thanks visa journey for all your help!

    It helps to do a timeline it helps to know if you filed the N 400 from old address or the new one after u moved it helps to know what state old address and new address are in as we can look up some information on internet about state immigration offices and timelines and even some federal districts court dates for the oath after the interview all that is why a timeline helps the VJ community answer questions processing times per office can be checked here if u know what office will have your N 400 https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/

    Hey, just thought I drop you a line, if you make contact with "too frustrated" on this forum, he may be able to guide you as he is currently going through the I-601 process for the same inamissibility grounds as your other half. Do mention that AUSTIN 96 pointed you in his direction. I am sure he will be happy to assist as he has been very kind and helpful towards me thus far. Keep me informed

    Hi we had our interview today and I wanted to offer a tip. You may want to go ahead and fill out the DS 5535 and have it ready in case your fiancé is asked to provide it. The adjudicator in our case stated that this is being required of every K1 out of Abu Dhabi. So our case was put on administrative processing pending the review of this form (we completed and submitted it same day).
