  1. Forrest Fire, Congrats, happy for you and best of luck on the next stage !!! ☀️ What is this old site? We check for the status here: https://egov.uscis.gov/casestatus/landing.do
  2. Contact them - https://www.uscis.gov/contactcenter If they cashed your money order then everything seems to be OK. They may just forgot to notify you (human error) Don't worry, it happens. Best of luck to you.
  3. It depends on your country (if a consulate allows it). Generally, it is very beneficial if a USC attends an interview together with you, but it is not required. Interview is for you.
  4. Mattie0212, check this flowchart: https://www.visajourney.com/content/k1flow/ It is a pretty good visualizer of all K-1 process, including timelines and useful information you may need. Also, from what I read here currently NOA2 to embassy ready takes from 6 to 8 weeks. Good luck!
  5. Yes, we should not worry about things which are out of our control. Better concentrate on what we can do - learn the process (it's pretty long and NOA1 is only the beginning of it) and get prepared for it to make everything as smooth as possible. Here is some useful for all of us information (if someone is not aware of it): K1 Fiance Visa Process Flowchart: https://www.visajourney.com/content/k1flow/ Step-by-Step Guide to the K-1 process (for the US Citizen): https://www.visajourney.com/content/k1guide/ So, you may start looking into documents, which you need for the interview. K-1 Fiance Visa: Tips on Forms and Documents: https://www.visajourney.com/content/k1tips/ After filing your I-129F begin to consider items required for the I-134. Step-by-Step Guide on How to File for Adjustment of Status for K1 and K3 Visa Holders: https://www.visajourney.com/content/k1k3aos/ It's useful to remember that NOA2 will be needed on this step. So, KEEP it. USCIS Example Forms: https://www.visajourney.com/content/examples/ Let's share such useful for all of us information here and good luck to everyone! ☀️
  6. Thank you so much for your kind help and advices, Pitaya ☀️
  7. It is so cool that K-1 process started to move much quicker since last spring. Currently NOA1 to NOA2 time averages 3 months. Good luck to all of us in this journey! ☀️🌈
  8. Thank you, Pitaya, for the extended explanation. I see, it's all because a bureaucracy and an additional time wait it may require. I am currently at the beginning stage of K-1 process, so just collecting information for the future, to make it as smooth as possible.
  9. Thanks, Pitaya. I saw that link previously, but it is still not clear for me Why is it so. Why is it not recommended to go for SSN after marriage? Doing it twice adds more steps to this already not very trivial process. The explanation would be highly appreciated.
  10. Interesting topic. I am new to it too. Why do you think that it's better to get SSN first and then go for another one (with changed family/last name after marriage)? It's seems logical and more easy to me to go for it after marriage. Is there anything important in that sequence which I don't know? Thank you!
  11. goursh, it seems you mixed up 2 things. 1) section 54, where you have to describe how you met & circumstances of your meeting(s). It may be extended to Part 8 Additional Information. Actually, it's what we did. We wrote something like "Please, see Supplement XX" in section 54 and detailed all the information on a separate sheet (but it should not be long, one page is more than enough) 2) Letter of intent to marry, which you and your Beneficiary must provide. These are pretty simple letters. Examples you may find on this site: https://www.visajourney.com/content/examples/ These letters should be dated and signed. Good luck in your K1 journey!
  12. Pure you, 5 months of waiting to just receive a receipt number. Thanks for sharing your experience. Now people would call as soon as they notice their receipt number doesn't work.
