  1. I got married in Los Angeles, did take about 4 weeks for it to be ready for print at the office, and an additional week for it to arrive in the mail. My friend got married in Sacramento and got a certified recorded copy same day!!! I didn't know other surrounding areas were faster, or I would have done it at another county, if you can wait 4-5 weeks then do it local, if not go somewhere else its worth the drive.
  2. My NO1 date is January 3rd, we received the bio-metrics appointment letter January 11th, it was scheduled for January 23rd. I think my husband got lucky and had the bio appointment scheduled really fast (1 week!). However if you are worried give USCIS a call, neither the old site nor the new site for case status check updated when appointment was scheduled, only updated on 1/25 when his fingerprints were processed.

    Fiance picked up his passport today, flying to Los Angeles on Wednesday. I can't believe we are done with this journey. AOS process is going to be a lot easier since we will be together, but I am sure I am going to drive him crazy with this too.
  4. My friend just had her wedding reception including a church ceremony in Armenia with her fiance in July, he had his interview on 9/4 and got approved and just got notice his visa is ready and he can pick it up in a couple of days. As long as you don't get legally married under court of law then fiance visa can still be recognized. He brought pictures of their reception to his interview as proof that relationship is genuine, the officer did not have an issue with it. So its not an automatic denial of K1 visa if you have a reception or even get married in church, technically having a marriage ceremony is not recognized as real marriage unless a marriage license is signed by appropriate parties and filed, and you get a marriage certificate recognizing your marriage as legal and true. So don't worry too much, you might just need to wait out the AP time, many couples do reception abroad since family members from beneficiaries country might not be able to travel to US for the wedding. I actually know a few couples that did that and still got K1 visa approved.

    My fiance was approved yesterday! He said the interview was easy and went without a hitch. Just waiting to get notice for him to pick up his passport, the officer told him he should get it within the next 2 weeks.

    Not sure if that's a good idea, how else would they verify that is YOUR tax return if your SSN is omitted. This goes to US Embassy, so I would not be too worried about your information being stolen, and some of that paperwork is returned to the beneficiary in the packet they give him for POE, other documents are shredded. I doubt there are nefarious individuals sitting waiting to steal SSN from US citizens. You have a higher chance of that when applying for jobs or running credit on the State side.

    Best place to go is your country's portal, other vj members may have shared their experience. I know some embassies use email for P3 some mail, others may call. And each Embassy process is different, Armenia is pretty simple, but other embassies may request documents before you can schedule your interview. Or go on the consulate website and see if they have information regarding the process.

    Update: he got the P3 by email today, and has his medical on 8/30. Are you using Armenia as your Embassy for visa?

    They haven’t yet, our case just arrived to the embassy on 8/23 I’m anticipating P3 this week, last I checked there was 9/27 still available for interview... I think that’s the last slot for September. My friend who also applied got the P3 on 8/17 and Embassy got her case 8/9 so if the timeline is consistent I’m hoping he gets the P3 this Friday... I did book the interview already though and he is calling for medical tomorrow

    The site actually allowed me to pay the visa fee and schedule the interview, P3 that my friend got only gives instructions to schedule medical and interview, and comeplete DS-160 and tells you what docs you gotta bring to the interview, I will probably get the P3 for my fiancé this upcoming week, our case went to ready status 8/23, there were just no dates for a week when my friend was waiting and then they opened 8 in September so I didn’t want to lose a spot waiting for P3. I’ll send you a copy of the P3 I have.

    Scheduled interview for September 11th! Still waiting to get P3 but it should come in next week and he can schedule his medical. I already have a copy that a friend received last week so I know its just instructions and doctor location. I am so excited, but a little worried, maybe I did it to early? Has anyone scheduled interview before getting P3? Embassy got our case yesterday 8/23.

    Its taking about 2-3 weeks for NVC to get the case and assign the case number, if you got your NOA2 on 8/9 it has been 15 days, just call once a day NCV at 603-334-0700. They email you the NVC# when your case goes out to the Embassy, so you can wait for that too, but it can be 1-2 weeks after your case # is actually assigned. I got NOA2 on 7/24, NVC recieved application 8/9 assigned case# 8/13, I got the email on 8/21 with case # and notice that its in transit to embassy. So you are still within normal processing time. Make sure you get your invoice # too, the email I got from NVC only had the case #, so its a good thing I called ahead of time and got both numbers.

    My case was received 8/9 and case # assigned 8/13, it has updated to in transit yesterday 8/21..not sure what the cut off is but the good news if your case didn't go out this week, then it will in 2 weeks...be patient, we waited for months for USCIS, NVC is probably the fastest in this process
  15. Affidavit of support it provided during the interview process, so just make sure she completes the I-134 for the interview, USCIS does not look at financials during their approval process
