  • Our Story
    Met July 2010 while I served in the communications department for Castillo del Rey in Nicaragua (my fav country in the world). This was my 6th trip to this country. He asked me to be his novia Sept 15 of 2010. Left to go back to US October 1, 2010. It's been long and hard but also rewarding to have to get to know someone without the distraction of just being "physical" and building the relationship on shallow principles. We continued to chat through facebook, emails. Back then he would walk to a cyber café to video chat at least 3 times a week until we were able to go apple and then do facetime. We facetime almost every day. He asked my parents THE QUESTION Nov of 2015 and now we are in the fiancé visa process. He has an invitation from my church to be the pastor for Latino ministries and we have previously tried to get him here on a religious visa (there goes 3 years of my life that I won't be getting back). But the system worked out for us and now he is here. Yay!

  1. The courier system pretty much doesn't exist in all Nicaragua. The only things I've seen are PO Boxes and expats usually are the ones that have those. Put however he would tell someone. my husband's was something like "primavera colonia 2.5 blocks north, 25 varas to the south". the folks at the embassy know that mail doesn't happen in Nicaland nor will they be sending anything via mail. If you have any other questions shoot me a pm
  2. This is a total non-sequitur from the current topic. Hope you didn't pack your shovels away from the heat wave we all had yesterday! Stay safe from the storm today/tomorrow. Gotta love those ND blizzards!
  3. I would suggest you bring some of those letters of intent for him to sign and have those on hand just in case the one you get from him initially doesn't work since you are going there to see him anyway! Never hurts to plan/be prepared for the unexpected My husband printed his stuff at an internet cafe and sent me the letters of intent via the closest fedex office along with some passport sized photos, though not sure that's an option since I think the only fedex location is in Managua. Bring extras to the states when he comes as you'll need them for Adjustment of Status/Greencard process. Cheaper to get them down there. A heads up for you: he will need to plan to have his birth certificate and Singleness Certificate from Central Registry in Managua. I had my husband get 3 birth certificates to have them on hand here in the states. Can't remember if the singleness certificate has an expiration date of 6 months like the police certificate does or not. Some other members dealing with the process may have copies of the packet 4; the embassy emailed me a copy after I requested it. Some info may have changed since 2016 on the copy i have. Don't be shy to message one of the other members dealing with Nicaragua to see if they can send you a copy. Good luck! If you have any questions on the k1 process, let me know or someone. This forum is a wealth of knowledge and full of people willing to help where they can!
  4. We filed Jan 28, 2019. Feb 19 biometrics in Fargo and received 10 year green card in the mail the same day. Now just radio silence. Hoping for amazing processing time to maybe get put into the fall ceremony.
  5. when we went thru the k1 process I originally had over 10,000 pages of exchanged messages between facebook, skype, and FaceTime. I picked a few conversations every three months or so. At the interview there officer didn't ask to see any kind of additional evidence.
  6. just did biometrics there this past Tues.
  7. same. site isn't loading it seems

  9. Got an email that there was “action” on our case as we packed up to go get induced for our “Dakotaraguan” baby this morn. (So bored, should have brought the xbox lol) Lo and behold i see this. Quite unexpected but we won’t complain.
  10. Had a surprising email that there was “action” taken on our case early today as we prepared to head to the hospital to be induced the morn. Still waiting for something to happen (so bored. Should have brought the Xbox lol). Quite unexpected but we will take it anyway.
  11. it stinks. But if I learn anything from when we go I will certainly share it with you guys, whether it sheds a little light for the rest of us or not.
  12. I would say leave it be if citizenship is your ultimate goal. Technically we are within processing times, aren't we, even though it's a super long wait? 18 months was the extension anyway. Same with us as far as absolute dead silence ever since they received it January last year. Stuck in the Upper Midwest Bermuda Triangle. I AM going to take the opportunity to inquire about it when we go for my husband's biometrics...whether or not they are able to share / see what's going on is another thing but at least since we will be there. "you have not because you ask not".
  13. They must have really low staffing or something in MN. Surely places with tons more population like Cali or Tx who I feel like probably serve way more people and yet seem to adjucate through their cases much more efficiently. Sure it serves ND, MN, and WI but even then can the combined numbers from these 3 states REALLY be that much more than the bigger population states? This is me just thinking out loud since I wouldn't have a clue as to the numbers that these places go through. Either that or we are just in the Bermuda Triangle equivalent to the upper Midwest.
  14. Hey guys, our 2018 IRS Tax statement is available on the irs website (taxes were filled on Jan 28) and I plan on adding that to our pile of papers. So if you've filed already and the IRS has accepted it yours might be available as well. We actually got our refund today too.
