  1. Hi guys, I’ve asked this in my sub-forum but would also like additional advice here. About a month ago, we received P3. One of the documents requested is the most recent tax transcript. Since my most recent tax transcript is 2016, we waited until end of June for 2018 to be processed as stated on the IRS website... well, nothing showed up on my IRS account and when I called, they never received it. 😭Since I have to send in another copy, it will take at least 3 weeks to process. We didn’t want to wait any longer so we sent in my 2016 tax transcript, mine and his bank statements, statement from my employer, etc. Everything points to having well above the income threshold. I’m concerned they will still request the 2018 tax transcript. I wrote a statement to the consulate saying that 2018 is still processing. Did anyone else have this issue? Are consulates understanding of tax returns still being processed? Thank you in advance!
  2. Thanks for your response! We decided to send it in. I called IRS and they told me it can take up to 21 days to process. We waited so long for the tax transcript to be available.... If I hadn't called, we'd still be waiting. It's very frustrating. We also called the consulate to advise but they said to send an email... We didn't bother. I agree, more than likely they will ask for the transcript. We're hoping that by the time they review our documents, the transcript will be ready. Our deadline is August 12.
  3. Hi Everyone, I apologize if this has already been addressed... Sorry, my fiancé and I don't speak German. (He is French, living in Germany.) I could really use your help here. We have our documents ready to send for P3 but we have some issues. I just found out that my 2018 tax returns were misplaced by the IRS so I need to send another copy to the IRS tomorrow and I have no idea how long it will take to process to request a tax transcript. My fiancé emailed the consulate and asked what alternative there was for a tax transcript and they responded that there is no alternative. I was below the income threshold to file taxes in 2017 so I am giving 2016 tax transcript and W2, along with a statement from my current employer (stating my income, nature of employment, and start date), 401K statements, a statement from my bank (stating my current balance, and when my account was opened), monthly statements showing my deposits, and finally, my fiancé's bank statements. My bank balances alone are well above the income requirements. I'm concerned they will make us wait for IRS to process my 2018 tax returns. Does anyone have any experience not being able to provide a tax transcript? Also, did anyone else give monthly statements to show the deposits? It's around 120 pages and they say to submit in duplicate... is it really necessary?! Please advise! Thank you in advance!!
  4. NOA 2 --> 04/12/2019 Arrived at Consulate --> 5/16/2019 (DHL hack worked for us!) After 7 months of waiting tirelessly for NOA 2, growing more and more impatient over time, and eventually desperate, pouring my fears into an online forum which by the way, I've never considered but I'm glad I did. The support in these forums is incredibly uplifting and so comforting, especially in this age of cyber bullying. Just wanted to say thank you to those who read my posts and took the time to comment. Thank you @Greenbaum especially for guiding us through the journey! I feel like a kid holding your hand since the beginning and I'm not ready to let go and venture into the subforums! 😆
  5. What a relief! I’m glad for you. Hoping for good news for you too. 🙂
  6. I got the text at 12:30 pm. I really hope you get your approval soon. Would be nice to continue through the process together! I think the trick was to send a variety of evidence. If some of your evidence is not translated, it should not harm you if your other evidence is solid. Our initial evidence focused one 1 event because we didn’t want to cause any confusion but our second eveidence was a mix of evidences for several events.
  7. Thank you so much! Yes, I was doubting my evidence! I found out first by text as I've signed up for alerts. And then I checked https://www.uscis.gov which was also updated.
  8. Yes, I think it depends a lot on the officer. It was about 170 days to receive the RFE so I thought it would take much longer.
  9. Thank you. Yes, so it took 7 business days for us. Thought it would take a lot longer.
  10. No no. Sorry for the confusion. I did not receive a second RFE. I was curious if it’s possible. Do they give another chance to send additional evidence if our documents we sent for the RFE are not enough?
  11. Has anyone received an RFE twice? I received an RFE for not proving enough supporting documentation for meeting within 2 years. I'm afraid my first set of evidence sent is not enough. I can provide additional evidence but it needs to be translated and it will cost more than the process of submitting this visa application. I'm hoping to avoid that but on second thought, maybe they don't give second chances to provide evidence? Any thought?! Thanks!
  12. I am sorry that you received a NOID. I don’t know why you didn’t receive a RFE instead. I hope they will accept your documents and changed their decision. I’m attaching a photo to show you the heading of the RFE I received. It explicitly states Request for Evidence.
  13. I feel your pain. If only the automated messages were a little more detailed. This process lacks humanity and consideration for couples living far from each other. I'm sad to be far from my fiancé and feel like my life is on pause. I can't even plan a wedding without knowing when my fiancé would arrive.
