    No, other online filers have been sent to Texas and Potomac as well, unfortunately online or paper doesn’t matter all of them are randomly sorted to the service centers

    Online is faster to be received, not faster to be processed. That would require a shorter queue with less petitions. Processing time stays the same, theyre just able to get the petition maybe a few days to a week sooner. Only way processing times will go down is if there’s less petitions, but there’s more and more petitions every year, so I don’t think it’s going to go down any time soon for anyone. Saves paper, though

    No problem! Bringing relationship evidence is definitely a must but it absolutely doesn’t have to be the same evidence from the I130. All interview notices are sent to the beneficiary’s email, nothing by post

    LilyJ got a reaction from Adventine in K1 to CR1   
    The big issue I see with switching to CR1 when you are already so late in the K1 process, is you're going to have to start all over again. Even if it takes all the way till spring before they resume K1, that's still way sooner than you'd be granted a CR1.. A CR1 can take upwards of 12-18 months on average (pre-covid..), and while the CR1 does have its advantages over the K1, I'm just not sure if it's really worth it for you to switch to a CR1 this late in the process, especially if getting your fiance here quicker is a big concern since you will be starting totally from scratch vs being a few months or less away from receiving your K1.

    For us it took 5 days, but my husband also lives in Denmark so it had to be shipped a bit farther

    An update from our side -- after 6 weeks of administrative processing/review, my husband's visa was issued. 
    His passport and original birth certificate were returned to us in Denmark today. We have waited over 800 days (almost 2 years 3 months) for this moment.

    Under normal circumstances at this point we probably would but money is just too tight for him to be gone another 3 months unfortunately, we’ve already been pushed back 5 months in our process because of covid so we can’t take much more financially

    LilyJ reacted to JFH in Instant marriage after divorce.   
    We are all well aware of that. You regularly respond when I mention this. It was the OP that mentioned the child in the first place because he mistakenly thinks that having a child “proves” that the marriage is bona fide. That’s the only thing he has brought to the table thus far when people have pointed out the possible red flags (married on first meeting, married five months after first communicating, different religions, different ethnic origin, her being a divorcee, him being involved with a married woman - in his culture these are more than frowned upon). He is completely missing the obvious and focusing on the wrong things. A bona fide marriage is a strong and happy marriage. He has a mountain ahead of him with the embassy in Pakistan.

    LilyJ reacted to jules98 in CR1 or AOS better if you have tourism visa   
    This is irrelevant for op. Intent is determined upon entry, at the border. As you just mentioned you did not have immigration intent. Op has clearly stated that they have immigration intent, hence this is an entirely different case than yours.

    See INA 214(b) to obtain a tourist visa, or INA 212(a)(7)(A)(i)(I) at POE for entering as an intending immigrant without an immigrant visa (or visa that allows immigrant intent like a K-1 visa).
    Also see the expedited removals some people have received as a result of trying this. Just Google it and you'll see plenty of it.

    We have gotten our official approval today! Now we wait for the passport to be returned.
    In case anyone wants to know a recent timeline of the medical results: my husband had his appointment completed on Aug. 20th at the Gothenburg location. The doctor originally assured him that the results would arrive on time for our interview on the 28th, but it was delayed. There is currently a backlog for the radiologist who reads the chest x-ray results, so he/she was unable to get to it until the 28th. The clinic sent the final results on Monday, and the embassy received them this morning. The embassy emailed us to let us know and ask for another copy of the waybill (they said they never received it, but they took it from my husband? Lol). Within 3-ish hours, everything was finished and the visa was issued.

    My passport was finally returned yesterday, a week and a half from the approval. Now my flight is booked, a new job contract signed and we’re finally ready for the next chapter of our lives. I wish you all best of luck in your respective cases

    When we had our case, there was no electronic transfer so it took a week for our case to arrive and another 3 or so to get our case number. I think things are much faster these days with IOE and all. But both the petitioner and beneficiary will get an email when the case is created. The beneficiary got a paper mail about it as well, but not until a month later, when we had already submitted everything since we had already gotten the case # a month earlier from email
