  1. I can tell you that for a K1, London usually wants only an I-134 from the sponsor who actually has enough income. Many have reported that experience. It doesn't have to be the fiancé. It goes to you. Nothing is mailed to London. Later when you are married and in the US applying for your greencard there is another affidavit of support (I-864) which WILL require both of them to provide one. That one is much more strict and specific. Your husband must be the primary sponsor with a signed form and tax return. The mother can be the joint sponsor by doing her own I-864 and providing her tax return and proof of income. Since you have questions now about what to prepare and expect in London, you should starting posting those in the UK Forum so you don't get answers that are the procedure in another country. UK forum is here https://www.visajourney.com/forums/forum/99-united-kingdom/
  2. He fills out 1-134, includes proof of his income, and mails it to you. You take it to the interview. That is absolutely all you need from him unless.... Petition Affirmation Letter (if applicable) If your petition expires before the visa interview takes place, you are required to bring to your interview a signed letter from your petitioner confirming that you both remain legally free to marry and that you will marry within 90 days of your arrival in the United States. ---------------------- Your petition will have an expiration date four months after NOA2. If you don't interview by that date (approx June 1) then he provides a letter for you to take. most easily interview in that allotted time, but it's perfectly fine if you don't. They just require the letter saying he still intends to marry you.
  3. The website says bring photocopies but they don't actually want them at the interview according to ones who report on their London experience. They scan your originals and hand them back. They used to file those paper copies, but are more digital now. The I-134 affidavit of support goes to the interview along with the rest of your documents. See "required documents" link on the instruction page. London will take anything that proves your fiance's income. Letter from employer or latest tax return are good proofs. Injections: There are only 4 required for adults. You get one of them (Varicella) waived if you tell them you have had chickenpox. MMR, Tdap or Td, and flu. Your point of entry will only want to see your passport/visa and the white envelope of papers that will get delivered with your visa. You don't need money in the bank.

    Visa interview

    You are not required to have a job. They are interested in the sponsor having income. If they ask, making pleasant conversation, just say you are still looking. No problem.
  5. I don't keep up with timelines anymore, but I can direct you to your instructions to follow once your case gets from NVC to London. You can read what needs to be prepared for a London interview (because each consulate has different procedures). London sends out a letter of instruction when they receive your file. It will say to get your K1 instructions here https://uk.usembassy.gov/visas/fiancee-2/applying-for-the-visa/ With the address change, you may not get the letter. No worries because you already have the link. You don't need the actual letter to show at the interview. The medical clinic will say to bring it to your exam. They just want to verify your new case number LNDxxxxxxxxxxxx. Your Petitioner fiancé will be notified by NVC of the same number and you can use that to show the medical clinic. Back to your London K1 instructions---- https://uk.usembassy.gov/visas/fiancee-2/applying-for-the-visa/ There are are four steps to read (scroll down) for an overview, then six links to specific topics at the top. The Immigrant FAQ link in the right column has more information. Right now, while waiting, you can order your police certificate, get your immunizations sorted, and get a Heath Summary report printout from your GP office. You will need those things to show at the medical and NHS can be slow helping you so good to start now. That is all explained in the links on the instruction page.
  6. That works for spouse visas because they must be complete before their visa interview in London because they are essentially getting cleared for a greencard. Since they can't get the shot it is waived. For a K1, you have to be complete on shots by your AOS interview. Varicella is available in the US, so the notation from Knightsbridge of "not readily available" holds no water now for your AOS. Unfortunately the vaccination form was filled out incorrectly or he failed to inform them he had chickenpox. It needed to say Varicella History for a K1 to have the jab waived. If you go to a civil surgeon, they will take his word for chickenpox and mark the proper waiver. But you never know what kind of interviewer you will get. He might let it slide, might ask for a new medical, or may just ask for the Varicella to be documented by a CS. I'm with Yuna. Just wait. An RFE at an interview is not a big deal. You go get whatever they say (if anything) and send it straight back to your interviewer. The embassy doesn't keep them. They were in the big white envelope he turned in at POE. His records are stored at the National Records Center until you apply for AOS. Then they are retrieved and put in your AOS file.
  7. I got my SSN within a couple of weeks of arrival on K1, so no to ITIN. We filed (as part of the return) Form 2555EZ for the foreign income exclusion. We also included the statement electing for me to be treated as a resident alien for income tax purposes because I did not have a greencard during the tax year and had not lived in the US 180 days that year.

    Knightsbridge medical completed!

    Very well-prepared and intelligent approach.
  9. You're over-thinking. How many times have you been married? The answer isn't zero if you are married. The affidavit of support requires more than W-2s. The latest tax return is required. A W2 alone with no tax return will get you an RFE. I didn't send photos and that type of relationship evidence This is a good thread from today with good lists. It should help you get organized. https://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/698758-have-i-included-everything-for-my-aos/ The instructions for the I-693 addresses K1s on page 7. Read What if I am a K nonimmigrant visa holder and already had a medical examination overseas? Here's the instructions https://www.uscis.gov/system/files_force/files/form/i-693instr.pdf?download=1

    Transferring money bank-to-bank

    You said "I know about declaring it on the customs form while on the plane" which it is on, but you didn't mention filling out the second declaration form. I don't know anything about if they will ask. Do you look suspicious or like a drug lord? Will your name pop up as a bad guy? I would never hand carry that much money so no experience here. There is going to be some paperwork from a lawyer, right? Seems like that would cover it.
  11. Yes. If you file a joint return with your wife, then all 2018 income (of both filers) is reported no matter where it was earned. If you file Married Filing Separately only your income is reported. She files no return. No documentation of the foreign income is required. I was in a similar situation and reported my best guess of foreign income from Jan-July. My refund was processed promptly and I was not audited.

    Transferring money bank-to-bank

    There's a form https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/195/~/currency-and-monetary-instruments---amount-that-can-be-brought-into-or-leave Report of International Transportation of Currency and Monetary Instruments" FinCEN 105 (former CF 4790).
  13. I don't think the airline counter needs an excuse or asks about your return. But yeah, I was thinking of 90-Day Fiancé when I wrote that 😂. I saw the most recent season.
  14. It doesn't have to be any particular number of days. But if you think you might want to bail out, then you have a way home.
