  • 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. Our processing time has updated again to 9 months! We'll see about that!
  2. Thank you! My husband's processing estimate was 16 months and it went down to 10 a little while later.
  3. Our application is being actively reviewed, biometrics are being reused, and our payment is pending on our credit card! Filing online rocks!
  4. We did it! My husband's N-400 has been submitted and (most importantly) paid for!
  5. Thank you! Retired does sound like the best answer to me. We're hoping for a combo interview, too!
  6. We're just finishing up and reviewing my husbands citizenship application - and plan to submit it today! Finally! We just wondered if he answered this question correctly. I'm retired, and the question is about his spouse's employment. He put "Retired" in the box, but there is a check box that says "unemployed". Should he check that, instead, or leave my work status as "retired"?
  7. They do mean only international travel. The question is "Have you taken a trip outside of the United States in the last 5 years. I was able to find out that if you're filing on the three year rule, you only consider what you've done in those three years. Thank you for taking the time to reply to my question!
  8. It does feel that way! Mine is at Vermont, too. We're waiting...... 😃
  9. It's not unusual for them to ask for something that was already sent. We never really know the reason, but I'm sure it's never personal.
  10. I understand your not wanting to give your important documents to someone, but this is USCIS, and they need to see them. There is no way around it. If they want to see your original documents, you'll need to be able to show them. You need to take all originals with you. They will look at them and hand them right back to you.
  11. My husband's filing date opens in a couple of weeks. We've already filled out the online form and uploaded some documents.
  12. Unless you have a very unusual situation, you don't need an attorney. This site is a great resource for information and advice.
