  • Our Story
    Neil Milliner and I met on a musicians’ website called ReverbNation in January 2015, and from there we connected on Facebook. Our friendship began as we commented on each other’s statuses and grew quite solid as we continued over several months. Neil’s wit was fun, and he was very easy to share ideas with. I found myself posting things I knew would interest him, so he would comment. He always did! We flirted, very nervously at first, each not sure that the other was feeling the same attraction. Having a planet between us has been frustrating and sometimes, painful, but could not keep us apart. We began text messaging and video chatting on FaceBook. We discovered that we both write poetry and decided to collaborate on a book, “The Poetry and Prose of Jodi DiLiberto and Neil Milliner. We’ve also written a song together, and it’s been played on several radio stations! Neil and I began to realize we have so much in common in our passion for music and poetry, our love of nature, and our beliefs in natural living. It was undeniable that we had fallen in love and it became unthinkable that we should live the rest of our lives apart. We decided that we wanted to marry and began making plans to bring that about. We knew we had to meet in person, and we began researching the K1 Visa process and organizing our finances to make this happen. Our relationship has been multi-faceted. While physical contact has been absent; emotional, artistic, and intellectual contact has not. We go on dates via Google Earth, where we choose a place to meet virtually and explore it together. We have tea together every day and have gone on breakfast/dinner dates while we chat. In September 2016, Neil had saved enough money to visit me! The anticipation was so exciting and the next couple of weeks seemed to take forever, but on October 11 he was here, in New Jersey! He stayed with me, at my house, and being together, in person, was better that our most wonderful dreams! We went for walks, took a day trip, visited some local places, looked for a lovely setting for our wedding, and were just able to be together. Neil even did some much-needed repairs around the house! Neil formally proposed, presented me with a lovely ring, and I joyfully accepted! We are planning to have our wedding in Wall Township, NJ. After ten idyllic days, when it was time for Neil to leave, we felt like we were being torn apart. Once again, the Earth was too big and lay between us. Neil is back in Australia now, and we are again continuing our relationship via Facebook chat as we fill out the paper work and gather evidence of our relationship for the K1 Visa.

  1. There is TV series called "90 Day Fiance". I've never seen it, so I don't know how accurately it depicts our experiences.
  2. I so appreciate your sharing your feelings about this! I've been checking my phone constantly through each phase of this process. Of course, we're impatient. We're waiting for something that's very important in our lives, and going through a very slow and complicated process to make it happen. How could anyone be calm?!? I have to admit that I'm finding it exciting. As each step of our K1 process happens, it feels like a victory, and we're on to the next step until he is finally here!
  3. Yes, we are! I'm sure you're right! Thank you!
  4. Oh, wow!!! Congratulations! Ours was sent on the 19th, too. It still says "In Transit", but I'm expecting that to change soon. 😃
  5. Never apologise for asking a question that's been asked before. Sometimes those answers are hard to find. As for CEAC, are you clicking the "Check my Visa Application Status" under the "immigrant" or the "non-immigrant" heading? It makes all the difference. For a K1 Visa, use the "immigrant" option. Good luck, and I hope you see exactly what you're hoping to see!
  6. If you haven't gotten your email yet, it could still be coming. Our case showed "In Transit" on the CEAC tracker this morning, but I didn't get the email until this afternoon. Congratulations to everyone who's case is on its way to their embassy!
  7. Mine just changed!!! In Transit!!!
  8. So will I! The suspense is terrible and exciting all at once!
  9. I've checked your timeline several times, hoping I missed an update. It's got to come soon!
  10. I forgot to say that there is a place on the I-129f for you to enter any other names you've ever used. I'm not sure the affidavit of same person was absolutely necessary, but I wanted to cover all my bases.
  11. I worried about the same thing. I've been married twice, but never changed my last name since my first marriage. Do include the marriage certificate that shows the change. Another concern I have, is that I've used a nickname on almost everything, all my life. My legal name is on my driver's license and passport, but my nickname is on my social security card and all my documents from work and taxes. I had my daughter write up an affidavit of same person, which is a letter stating that I use both names. There is a legal way to write this, and many resources online to show you how to do it. It included the amount of time she's known me, and the manner in which I use each name. She had the letter notarized, and I included it with my I-129f.
  12. I called and you should, too. Have you updated your email address on their website? That works, too, but it takes days.
  13. It's so exciting to read this! Congratulations!!!
