  1. September 2019 biometrics here too. I think the Californians here have the longest waits. Glad to know the EAD renewal came quickly though, I didn't send in the renewal as early as I could have so we were sweating it (needed to get the receipt in hand for the automatic 180-day extension and that took a few weeks). Hopefully a new combo card will arrive soon. The waiting is definitely stressful!
  2. Congrats! And thanks for the report. Very helpful to know what evidence they wanted to see and what questions were asked.
  3. Moe428 it's like you're our lucky charm - or "reverse jinx" - just checked and saw "New Card Is Being Produced" - this is for the receipt # related to our EAD. No update to status for AP, but of course we have our fingers crossed that it's actually a combo card that's coming.
  4. Congrats - though sorry it's not gonna be the 10-year GC. But for what it's worth, you've given me some hope that things are moving! We're really hoping to get EAD & AP soon... according to VJ timeline & processing times, it should be any day now (though we had an RFIE that added 3 weeks to the process, don't know if that's factored in on VJ). Anyway, good luck with the interview! How far out is it scheduled?
  5. I highly recommend spending time with the guides on this site and info in the forums. This one (K1 Fiance Visa Step-by-Step Guide on Filing an I-129F for a Foreign Fiance) covers this stuff pretty well. I don't believe anything at this stage (the filing of the I-129F) needs to be notarized, I didn't notarize anything on our I-129F. Just to clarify, for the I-129F they ask for Evidence of In-Person Meeting, not "proof of relationship." Later in the process (getting the greencard) you'll do a separate, different "proof of relationship" exercise. The in-person meeting bit is on the I-129F form - Part 2, Question 53, "Have you and your fiancé(e) met in person during the two years immediately before filing this petition?" and then question 54 gives you 5 lines to describe it. I used the guide here on VisaJourney (here's that link again) to prep everything. On line 54 I wrote a short description but then put SEE ATTACHED, and created a separate document that was included in the I-129F I submitted. I just followed the guide, and made a cover page with a brief description, and then wrote out details of our two most recent in person visits, and on the subsequent pages, put photos and captions from those in person visits. This was a word document that totaled 5 pages, and then I also attached as much documentation as I could as part of this packet - boarding passes, receipts from tours we went on, hotel bookings (thanks to reading up on this site, I made a point of putting BOTH our names on the hotel reservations so they would appear on the receipts/folios). Hope that helps! Best of luck, it truly is a journey... a long one for sure, take a lot of patience and research but this website is a tremendous resource.
  6. Likewise! I wonder if your application goes faster as you’ve been “in the system” for so long (comparatively). Did you expedite your EAD or did it just happen that quickly on its own? I mean your case is really different than those of us doing K-1 adjustments - you’re already working, so the EAD seems redundant (unless, like you say, you move).
