  • Our Story
    I met my fiancé online in 2006. We met 3 months later in Brazil. WE got engaged a few months later and on March 2007 we started the K1 process.
    And this is our process timeline:

    I-129F package sent : first week of March/2007
    Vermont SC received:
    NOAction received: March/16/2007
    NoAproval received: March/26/2007
    Case sent to NVC - Rio Consulate receives and processes the case and sends me the paclage: aprox. 3 weeks
    I waited several months to send the package so as having the visa granted it would still be valid by december (when we got married regiliously in Brazil)
    K1 package sent: Aug/21/2007
    Consulate schedules interview: 3 weeks after package was sent
    Medical Exame: Oct/01/2007
    Visa Interview at Consulate: Oct/02/2007 (5 weeks after package was sent) -- Visa granted!

    I traveled to USA: Dec/13/2007
    Everything went fine with immigration. I took me about 30-40 min because there was only one officer. They stapled the I-94 on my passport and wrote on it and on my visa page my A # (Alien Number).

    Applied Marriage Certificate: Jan/17/2008 (All you need is your passport. They actually print your license and give it for you to take home. You have to wait 3 days and schedule and appointment with the judge of peace by phone.)

    We got legally married: Feb/13/2008 (Take the license with you. The ceremony took about 5-10 min. The judge signed kept the original and gave us a certified copy. They original will be sent by mail. He said we will receive it in 2-3 weeks.)

    Preparing AOS forms: Feb/2008 (hopefully send in a week, before my I-94 expires)

    Applied for Social Security (SSN): Feb/28/2008
    SSN Card arrived on the mail: Mar/05/2008

    Filed for AOS: Mar/12/2008
    Chicago Office received it: Mar/14/2008
    Check cashed: Mar/21/2008
    Waiting for NOAs

    Hope this information helps you.
