  • Our Story
    We met on an online game through mutual friends. We stayed up the first night talking and drinking (5am for me and 11am for him!!). We knew from that night that we were meant to be together. We met in person a month later and have been inseparable (except for distance) since! I can't wait to marry him and start our permanent life together <3.

  1. WOO HOO!! I saw your post in the October filers and I came here to tell everyone but you beat me to it! Lol! I'm so excited for you and us! They are coming soon! ❤️
  2. I'm not sure. I'm the USC so I know nothing about how it's done there! He was doing some digging online and said he doesn't think it usually shows that info but I wanted to check with some of you guys who have actually gone through the process. He has his original BC but it's only in Norwegian so he requested a certified copy that has Norwegian and English on it so we don't have to translate. I suppose he can wait until he gets his instructions (we are still awaiting NOA2 so I am pretty ahead of myself but I love to be prepared). The instructions may be different than what someone had posted for me earlier in the thread. I was just wondering what other Norwegians had done!
  3. Hi again! My fiance requested a copy of his birth certificate in both Norwegian and English. The one he received though does not have his parents' DOB or birth place. Is there a specific birth certificate we have to request?
  4. Mine too! I'm at the very end of November so I have a bit more wait than others here but I will be SO EXCITED to see people getting theirs!
  5. I don't get asked as frequently but I would say someone from work asks about it atleast once a week. I just keep telling them it's a waiting game at this point! I can't tell you how many times I've explained this process to people. I always hear "Well why doesn't he just move here now so you can get married?" 😒 I keep telling myself that worrying or stressing isn't doing any good at all. It won't make the process go any faster!
  6. Hello all! I wasn't sure where to post this so I thought off topic would be safe! I am just wondering what are your thoughts on going to get your fiance (once they have K1 in their hand) in their home country and flying back to the US together? I've seen a lot of people say they did this but I am honestly not planning to. My fiance is from Norway and speaks English fluently. He has traveled to the US alone 5 times with no issues whatsoever. Doesn't seem like a good use of our money for me to fly over there and back when he can make the journey alone (and has). Is this frowned upon at POE? Do the officers think differently that he is entering alone? Thanks for any personal experience!
  7. I feel like it is probably a good idea to keep hard copy evidence of everything in the immigration process. You never know when you're going to need it! But that is just my take on it. More experienced users can chime in as well. I think we are all learning that patience is a virtue and maybe one that we thought we had but is proving hard to keep now! 😉
  8. Hope everyone is hanging in there! I've been peeking on the October filers thread every few days and it's so encouraging to see how positive and happy they are over there getting their approvals! Won't be long until that's us!
  9. And for the medical I just sent an email to KAL klinikken. They were super helpful with picking a date that fit with my schedule 😊 THANK YOU SO MUCH! This was so informative! ❤️
  10. I'm getting a little antsy waiting for our K1 NOA2 so I've been doing some reading on the upcoming items we will need to do. Does anyone know what the letter from the embassy will entail? Like what items they will require my fiance to bring to the interview and how to schedule a medical in Norway? Thanks!
  11. This was my concern as well. I don't know how my fiance is supposed to be self sufficient if he may not get an EAD for months once arriving in the states (not including the time it will take to OBTAIN a job). I'm curious to see how this applies to K-1 moving forward. I wonder if the income of a sponsor will weigh more heavily than other factors such as work history and credit score in the case of K1.
  12. I’m just wondering how this applies to people adjusting from k1 to green card. How are they supposed to show financial stability other than a sponsor if they aren’t permitted to work at the time of filing? Would more proof need to be shown at the interview?
  13. Hi! I was wondering if you could tell me what these are abbreviations for?
