  1. Hello Berries!! I thought I'd start the new September 2018 129f thread. Best of luck to all new filers Currently it takes at least 6 months to receive the NOA2 for I-129F. One of the useful tools that the US petitioner should sign up for is the USPS Informed Delivery: https://informeddelivery.usps.com/box/pages/intro/start.action. Update your VJ timeline so that others could answer your queries more appropriately. New site:https://myaccount.uscis.dhs.gov/ Once you have your WAC you can create an account in the webpage! Good luck and welcome to your new virtual Family! Feel free to ask !
  2. Hello newbie here. I’m still in the process of gathering all the required documents to file the 129. I’ve seen here that people included chat logs. My fiancé and I communicate on WhatsApp. Would I have to print out our complete chat logs??😳
  3. My fiancé mailed our k1 visa 129-F application on Feb 11th through USPS and the status indicates delivered on Feb 15th. We called USCIS last week and they confirmed that they received it. However, nothing was charged yet as for now. And we didn’t receive any email. It has been more than two weeks already. What could have happened? Should we call again?
  4. I know this question may have been asked a million times before, but I am new to all this and would like to find out if there's anything I can do to speed up the process? I sent in my I-129F packet with everything that was required and even a few extras.. I received my NOA-1 a few days later, and it's been over 4 months now without any information from USCIS... what should I do? is there a time frame that USCIS needs to follow to let you know that they are still working on your case? believe I read something about 60 days before you can talk to someone, but who can I talk to when all I get is a recording? Please help me. Thank you.
  5. I got my RFE today. They wanted a legible copy of one of my divorces and pictures of us together, which I put in the application. My case is with the Texas service center but the address they want me to mail the stuff is in California. Can I use a different envelope and can I enclose a video of our engagement party? P.S. Does anyone have a general time frame from sending the RFE back to NOA2?
  6. Ok newbie here. I asked in another forum about chat logs and whether I needed them for the 129. I understand that Morocco is considered high fraud. So we might have difficulty because I’m older than him. I am still gathering the documents to file the 129. I’m hoping to be done by the end of the month. I want to make sure I’m thorough so we are not denied or delayed any longer than we have to be. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  7. Has anyone in Canada already had an interview, denied and had to file a 601 waiver? My fiance's waiver was approved July 1st. We've contacted Montreal and my senator did also but keep getting told it's in administrative processing and they will let us know what needs updated and when a 2nd interview can be scheduled and to wait for instructions (first interview was 2 years ago so must have another one). It's been almost 4 months since his waiver was approved and I feel like he's never going to get a 2nd interview or get to come home I'm in a Facebook group for waivers and it seems like other countries receive instructions and get a 2nd interview set up right away. Others approved after us from other countries are already home! Just so frustrated!!
  8. Cheers! My fiance and I submitted the K-1 just about a month ago and received the NOA1. I graduated last May and started a new job, making well over the required min 20k/year. I am considering becoming self-employed before we receive the NOA2. What are the ramifications? I won't have tax documents available yet for my self-employed income by the time we get ready for the interview, but I would be able to show proof of income.
  9. Does anyone have any recent experience with asking for a K1 deadline extension. Our deadline is June 25 and we're still waiting on some adoption paperwork that will extended beyond the 4 month deadline. Our package is at the embassy now and we've completed but have not submitted the DS160 yet. Specifically - how to go about requesting an extension? Do we call the consulate or set up an appointment in person.
  10. Hi, My K1 visa petition just got approved 7 days ago. My fiancee will be interviewed at US Embassy in Manila. For those who already set up an appointment for the interview, WHAT’S THE EARLIEST DATE DO THEY HAVE? And when/If the CO ask “ WHEN DID YOU MEET AND HOW? Is that when we meet online 3 years ago or when we meet in person 7 months when I visited Philippines.
  11. Hello, My fiancé and I are currently going through the process of putting together the I-129F petition. We met on Omegle.com and since it is not considered an IMB to our knowledge, we wanted to make that as clear as possible to prevent an RFE. Since we could not find any Terms of Service, we just wanted to include the Privacy Policy and the Wikipedia article in addition to our explanation in the letter as follows: << I first met my fiancé online, on ‘omegle.com', which is a free online chat website that allows users to socialize with others without the need to register. (Please Note: omegle.com is not considered an International Marriage Broker. It is used free of charge and without the need to register. The service of Omegle randomly pairs users regardless of their location, origin, gender, or country of citizenship in one-on-one anonymous chat sessions. Omegle does not match U.S. citizens/residents with aliens as their principal business.) On this site, we chatted via webcam/audio and realized we shared many common interests and hobbies. On ‘omegle.com', We exchanged phone numbers in order to communicate via iMessage and FaceTime, which we still do today. >> Should that be enough of an explanation with the attached documents to prevent getting an RFE? Thank you so much in advance! Best, Kristen & Martin
  12. Hey guys, I have a situation with my father’s name, in my birth certificate his last name is different than it is on his ID (the way it’s on his ID is the way I wrote it on the I-129f) and the reason is because our name is supposed to be written Beard but instead they initially wrote it as bierd which is wrong so he updated it (to beard) on his ID and that the way it’s on every identification document he has, but I’m afraid that this could be a problem since the way it’s on his ID is not the same way it’s on my birth certificate and I tried to have this corrected and they said that they can’t update that unless I update my last name(the institution in charge of the birth certificate) which I can’t do because I’m in the middle of the K-1 process, so my question is could this be a problem? Could the consulate officer think that I tried to use false information? And also I have my fiancé’s phone number registered as “my wife” in my phone could this be a red flag if I bring screenshots to the interview with this name? @Greenbaum
