  1. If y'all are applying for a K1 then your income doesn't matter to them because once you move you will no longer have that income. They want to make sure your beneficiary can fully support you when you move so you're good. As far as bringing to much stuff it's better to have stuff that you don't need than not have it and need it. Anything you feel like you need take it just be organized with it.
  2. Not sure if it depends on the embassy/country but my husband had no issues at all. Divorces in England take a while. His took nearly two years and we were well into our relationship before it was finalized. I think as long as the K1 wasn't filed before the divorce was final you should be good. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. :)
  3. Wow, your story really touched me. My heart aches that you and your family had to go through this. I got pregnant before me and my husband even started the immigration process for him so him saying goodbye to me and especially our daughter was always so heart breaking. I couldn't imagine going through what you guys went through. I commend you guys so much for sticking it out and doing everything right and now living a happily ever after. You definitely went through the ringer. More people need to read this and learn! Sending all good vibes your way. I wish you nothing but the best in the future!
  4. You're welcome! Like Meisha said there were some people dressed up and some super casual. Most were just like us jeans and a dressy casual shirt. Good luck!
  5. I'm very sorry to hear this. I would be so distraught. I'm the american citizen in our relationship as well. I've always been scared of this happening but my husband has never given me any reason to believe it has or will. I think a lot of it was negative people telling me or making jokes he was only after a greencard. I wish you the very best and I hope in the future you will find love and trust again. Like others said you seem very strong!
  6. Thanks guys! I know in the back of my mind it's going to be an easy painless process because we have nothing to hide and are 100% legit but still it's my nerves getting to me.
  7. Our interview for our marriage based green card is coming up this Wednesday. I was wondering if there is a dress code? Would we be ok wearing dress shirts with blue jeans? Also, any other advice at this point is appreciated.... We have two backpacks full of stuff in case they ask for it....a copy of both our petitions, all original documents, and lots of supporting evidence since we've got married.
  8. We got a notification on case tracker that our interview was scheduled and expect an appointment letter. I’m not terribly concerned it hasn’t came yet because it won’t be a week until tomorrow since it changed but when should we expect it in the mail? We are the Atlanta field office if that has anything to do with it. Thanks in advance!
  9. Me and my husband are in the waiting for an interview for AOS stage at the moment. He has his AP/EAD and a job. We just bought a house together however I was the only one on the loan due to him not working very long and plus sometimes it's better to do it with only one person on the loan anyway I applied for two different loans one I don't have to pay back after a certain amount of years. Free money who wouldn't however this particular loan wouldn't allow him to sign at closing because he wasn't actually on the loan. However, he was included on the deed to the house. Is this sufficient evidence when we have our interview? We have a joint bank account, we are on the same phone plan, he's on my health insurance and car insurance. Most of the bills are in my name but I'm going to work on changing that and having a few put in his name. I don't see why this would be an issue or cause any red flags with all the other evidence we have plus him being on the deed but I wanted to consult some of my experts here on visa journey.
  10. Have you considered doing the IR1? Getting married in India on the date you want then having her come here with a spousal visa? Most people here will agree that's the easier option and is only a couple of months longer than the K1 but ends up being quicker because she won't have to wait for AOS. Btw, the K1 can be very unpredictable. We filed October 2017 and ours from filing date to date of marriage here was almost 10 months to the day. Some go quicker some go longer. I just wouldn't put all my faith in a specific time frame.
  11. Try to be patient. I know it's easier said than done but like others have stated some people are in AP for years. I know it's a scary thought but 3 months isn't that bad.
  12. Just make sure you send separate documents with the EAD/AP. We sent it all together but I included their own cover sheet, copy of my husband's k1. i94, NOA, and marriage certificate. Someone put they've never heard of that. Well I hadn't either until I posted the same thing you did and someone told me then. Even though they can be filed together they will get separated. We never got any RFE and were approved for the EAD/AP. Still awaiting interview for GC. Good luck! ...Oh and the passport style photos for each applications so should be six total!
  13. I believe the directions are copies of everything. That's what we did and we had no RFE and it has been sent to my field office. Take originals to the interview.
  14. I believe once that K1 visa is issued in a passport and she comes over that's considered her 90 day time period. I may be wrong but I seem to remember someone else asking about this before (using an Esta after the K1 has been issued then using the K1 at a later date) and I don't believe it's allowed. Again other users correct me if I am wrong. I can't really answer the other questions because it all depends on how that works out for you two but after doing the K1 for my husband I would always, always recommend the CR1! He just got his EAD/AP like two weeks ago and we applied with his AOS back in early August just days after we married. My bank wouldn't even allow him to be added on my account because his SS# was so new. He had to provide some USCIS official document showing he is legally here and a NOA for our AOS wasn't good enough so he just now got added when his EAD/AP got here. He's also had trouble with his driver's license so take my advise and probably 90% of users on here. CR1 is the way to go. If I knew then what I know now we would have done that.
