  1. Congratulations on winning the lottery! That's awesome that you both won! Best wishes!
  2. I'm not quite sure what you are saying here. 1. All K-1 cases sent to Vermont are couples where the petitioner has a criminal background. 2. Any K-1 which is sent to Vermont will be complicated if the petitioner has a criminal background. At any rate, the OP is not doing K-1. And I've read other theories that Vermont is for complicated cases, but as I said, a lot of the people who posted on my original thread did not have complications. It seems a little farfetched that they would designate one center for "complicated cases".
  3. If you check out that thread "Case moved to Vermont" as Chancy mentioned and you will see we were approved in just under 6 months at Vermont and at that time the processing time was up to like 33 months! I don't think Vermont is for complicated cases, because (again see the thread) a lot of couples there had no red flags or complications. Try not to worry! Work on getting tax transcripts for the last tax year and up to two previous years if you opt for that because they are required at NVC and you want to be ready to submit by the time you get approved at USCIS. Also your spouse can look at the instructions for the DS260 electronic application which is also submitted at the NVC. We also submitted a letter of employment. And we uploaded photos from a recent visit and additional chat and call logs just to be on the safe side, so if you want to work on that you can. A lot of people have success with CR1 after getting K-1 denied, so hopefully that will be the case with you. And every day you are together, and communicating with each other adds to the time which you have known each other which also helps your case I think. Good luck! https://travel.state.gov/content/dam/visas/DS-260-Exemplar.pdf
  4. Congratulations on finishing the visa process and getting your return processed! Now you can breathe! After mailing the requested ORIGINAL passport page, there was a lot of confusion as the post office reported it as "undelivered" at the post office for 10 days and said they would send it back to me if the IRS didn't pick it up. (The address to mail the evidence to is a post office box so it's at their discretion to go pick it up.) I would recommend to not send it overnight by usps to the p.o. box. If you want to send it overnight I recommend Fedex. I sent my original ITIN application and tax return by Fedex and had no issues.) After 10 days I got a text saying it had been picked up by the IRS the day after I sent it 😜. Now it has been 8 weeks since we sent the requested original of the passport page and have not received the ITIN. When my husband called the IRS they said it will be 9-11 weeks from the date they recieved it (so September 10). If we don't receive the ITIN in 3 weeks, we will call them. Tax return of course still shows as "return not processed". Congratulations on finishing the visa process and getting your return processed! Now you can breathe!

  5. Thanks so much for clearing that up! 😊 Thanks for that clarification! 🙏
  6. Thanks but I'm not talking about time to get documentarily qualified (DQ) I'm talking about how long until the status of your documents submitted is accepted, like they don't have a problem with the documents, and then they start to review your case.
  7. Hi everyone, We submitted our documents to NVC one month ago (on October 4, 2021) and the status is still showing "Submitted" and not "Accepted". Is this normal? I heard that documents are usually accepted within days. Should I be worried?
  8. I'm not sure why people aren't doing timelines. It's so satisfying to update it!
  9. How long to get DQ at the NVC nowadays. Thanks in advance!
  10. We got actively reviewing and then 3 1/2 weeks later we got actively reviewing again and then the next day we got approved
  11. Things with Vermont HAVE drastically changed in the last few months. The processing time was 24-33 months and now it's 9 to 12 months I think. I think there was like this national outcry because the processing time was soo much longer than the other processing centers. So it's a good move! Hope you are approved soon!
  12. Actively reviewed 8/13/21 Actively reviewed again 9/8/21 Approved 9/9/21
  13. Thanks! Unfortunately the transcript is not available since the return hasn't processed. I ended up calling the NVC. I called at 7:00 AM and still was waiting to talk to a rep for 40 minutes! The agent told me to put just the form 1040 tax return (2 pages) under required documents where it says "Tax return or transcript" and then up load the w2 in Additonal Documents under Form W2 wage and tax statement and the schedules under Federal Income Tax schedule also under Additional Documents. I have seen where someone's Tax return or transcript got rejected because they included the W2 in the tax return or transcript they uploaded. So my advice is to separate everything out if you don't have a transcript. There is a thread for people who filed their 2020 tax return jointly with an ITIN application for their spouse if anyone is interested. Anyway we uploaded all of our documents for the NVC and submitted last night now we just need to wait 😁!
  14. Thanks for your response! Yes, unfortunately we can't get a transcript because the return hasn't been processed yet.
