  1. Thank you for completing your profile. I noticed that you chose Lewisville Tx and Lockbox. The correct entry would be California - then Service Center (CSC) as that is where you file will go for adjudication. The lockbox doesn't adjudicate your case, but CSC will do the processing and adjudication. Your current selection will skew the timeline algorithms to follow your case and others here on VJ. @Cheburashka34 Could you do the same please. Make the updated changes. Follow the example that I give in my earlier reply.
  2. Yuppers. Very normal. It often takes 2-3 weeks for any action including the cashing of the check. This process is a challenge and those who can out last USICS normally wins. Patience grasshopper. In the meantime..... We need a little housekeeping on your end. 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.

Select it and see what wonderful information will open up for you. Thanks

  4. Receipt date and your correct either will get the job done.
  5. Everything for the interview is on USEM's website. Additional information can be found here: http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ph/index.html?firstTime=No Also, there is a sub-forum for the Philippines here on VJ that you should be a part of. It's a good place to read what others are experiencing which will only prepare you for your interview. http://www.visajourney.com/forums/forum/129-philippines/ @Hank_ Has a great website to help answer most PI embassy questions and procedures: https://www.visaconnection-philippines.com/us-embassy-usem.html  Also, there is a sub-forum for the Philippines here on VJ that you should be a part of. It's a good place to read what others are experiencing which will only prepare you for your interview. http://www.visajourney.com/forums/forum/129-philippines/ There you have it. All the news fit to print. Good luck and stay engaged.
  6. It's hard to opine on the reason for not boarding a K-1 visa holder. There are many factors, too numerous to list here, why someone is denied boarding. I suspect in this case it could have been another issue but since I don't know the facts, I will reserve the "rest of the story" until I know more. K-1's are being allowed into the US. If they are from the Schengen area then it's best to travel to a non-Schengen area, wait 14 days and then fly to the US. Flights cannot fly through a Schengen airport to arrive at the US. Just updating you on what we are seeing. Many threads on this topic throughout VJ.
  7. Thanks for completing your timeline and profile. Now to answer your statement/question. You are still within their published timeframe for adjudicating a RFE replay. Processing of your Form I-129F. will resume upon receipt of your response. If you have not heard from USCIS within 60 days of responding, you may contact the USCIS Contact Center (UCC) at 1-800-375-5283. It is almost impossible to determine USCIS workload and when the adjudicator can get back to your file, since the adjudicator likely just picked up another file and started working on it after sending out your RFE and putting yours back in the stack. It may be safe to assume that you may hear something in 2 to 4 weeks, maybe sooner(?). It is safe to say that at this time, USCIS is seriously buried in paperwork and short on workers, just look at the protracted processing times for everything.... Good luck on your immigration journey.
  8. Be sure to revisit your personal profile to correct your service center. Texas is a "lockbox" location and California, where all I-129f, Petition for Alien Fiancé(e) begin their journey is a "service center". So, your filing center should be California. This will help in populating the timelines here on VJ. Thanks.
  9. First be sure you follow the guidelines for the request to expedite and that you meet their requirements. Anyone can ask for their case to be expedited but must follow certain criteria. https://www.uscis.gov/forms/expedite-criteria If accepted or denied neither have an impact on any other process toward a visa. For USCIS refer to https://www.uscis.gov/forms/forms-information/how-make-expedite-request For NVC they expedite K-1 visas already. For Embassies; An expedited request requires you to contact them either through email or a phone call. Most embassy don't grant expedited visas but only in the case of an emergency. Check with your embassy for additional details. Chapter 5 - Requests to Expedite Applications or Petitions Benefit requestors may request USCIS to expedite the adjudication of their applications or petitions. USCIS considers all expedite requests on a case-by-case basis and generally requires documentation to support such requests. The decision to grant or deny an expedite request is within the sole discretion of USCIS. If you find anything not up to date or the information is wrong, please share your findings. Please compare the date of the P3 of mine with the date from your copy, once you receive yours from your embassy. Keep in mind that I try and be factual with my information, but I can't do it on my own and that's where you come in and can give back to the community those who come behind you. Without others ahead of you I would not be able to provide this to you. I can only share factual information if folks like you continue to be my eyes and ears for your embassy. I wish you much success in your visa journey. P3 Letter https://drive.google.com/file/d/1cBWgGJr4a5ay3b4OV28_dC3pgf63ZUr-/view?usp=sharing Keep in mind that a forum like this one is for initial bonding with others who are along the same timeline as you for initial processing. The initial application is the same no matter where in the world you are. But, having said that, once you get your approval (NOA2 text message or email), you should also check in with your country's sub-forum to get a better understanding of the process for the Embassy that you will be interviewing with, and to get direct answers from those who have completed the steps you are about to at the US Embassy - Juarez Mexico. Link: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/forum/96-mexico-latin-south-america/ Get the Juarez K1 Embassy instructions at http://travel.state.gov/content/dam/visas/K1/CDJ%20-%20Ciudad%20Juarez.pdf (Spanish) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1cBWgGJr4a5ay3b4OV28_dC3pgf63ZUr-/view?usp=sharing (English) as this is your bible needed to complete and receive your visa. The required documents are included and use this website as a checklist. Once you have completed or gathered the required documents you'll be ready for your interview. Last but not least, READ the pages on the US Embassy website for you country so that you are up to speed. http://ciudadjuarez.usconsulate.gov/ https://ais.usvisa-info.com/en-Mx/iv One last place to check for information would be the VJ Wiki found here: http://www.visajourney.com/wiki/index.php/Special:AllPages This is a very detailed and well thought out map to find many of the different locations you will need to visit for your visa. I would like to give credit to the author Stfiii at https://www.visajourney.com/profile/210028-stfiii/ She writes: Please enjoy this custom Map I made in Google to share with the community members who will be going to the American Consulate in Juarez. https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=z0e2ZFE5NX5k.kNz6Hugk8RNE&usp=sharing You will find highlighted areas that shows the Clinica Medica Internacional, American Consular, ASC (Application Service Center) Groceries, Walmart, Costco, Restaurants, Convenience Stores, Museums etc...- are all at.
  10. Congratulations! Join us in the AUGUST 2020 K-1 NOA2 to NVC to EMBASSY thread and download the PDF file on the first post of the first page for tips, tricks, and hacks to follow your case to the embassy. I'll post both links below: https://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/744595-august-2020-k-1-noa2-to-nvc-to-embassy/ PDF with tips, tricks, and hacks. BTW this PDF is updated from time to time so you might check back to ensure you have the latest information. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1nfin98c33IEpB0T0FlURERriblYmlm5O/view?usp=sharing
  11. During the processing of your K-1 visa it's treated as a non-immigrant visa with immigration intentions. Most embassies are not processing K-1 visa currently due to the pandemic and the Executive Order that's in place.
  12. Welcome letter will not come till your case file is sent to the embassy and that won't happen till the file is requested and received to your embassy. Nothing you can do but wait some more.
  13. I found this: Divorce Decree Verification https://drive.google.com/file/d/1LmKCenaXNT9BQJtMJrSSXlEJo289tlo3/view?usp=sharing
  14. You can attempt to secure the baby's US citizenship through the embassy after his/her birth and prior to the K-1 interview. Then it's another item that is out of the way. The possibility of a DNA tests are sometimes paramount and may be true in your situation and that test takes time. Your embassy will walk you through that process if required.
