Hi All, My fiance and I are seemingly frozen in place waiting for the NVC to complete minor processing tasks so we may move forward with scheduling her K1 interview with the US consulate in Bogota. Below is an email I'm preparing to distribute to immigration attorneys in my Orlando, FL area, and I'm hopeful that some of you may be able to answer some of the questions within based on recent experience with this phase of the process or professional legal expertise. If any of you have attorneys who are skilled and experienced with navigating NVC/Bogota Consulate problems and delays I sure would appreciate referrals. Thanks in advance! - Aaron ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm reaching out in search of legal advisement and assistance from a legal professional with a high degree of experience dealing with K1 Visa immigration specifically from Colombia to the US, and with specific experience navigating the present complications created by COVID-19 and the resultant backlog/delays within the NVC and consulate in Bogota. My fiance and my current situation is as follows: 5/21/20 - Received Date of I-129F - Petition for Fiance 1/14/21 - Notice Date of Approval (I-797 Notice of Action) 9/14/21 - Received Date of K1-FTP from NVC stating NVC will now forward approved I-129F petition to Consulate in Bogota, and the transfer process will be complete in a matter of weeks Since receiving the K1-FTP on 9/14/21 our process appears to have stalled. Our current legal representation has been thoroughly unresponsive and ineffective throughout our entire process (now more so than ever). Since the 1/14/21 Notice of Approval, they have stated only that we are waiting for the NVC to generate a case and invoice so we can process the Dept of State application and schedule her interview at the consulate in Bogota (despite the fact that we received a Case Number on the K1-FTP document). In addition to handling my fiance's change of status process once we are legally married in the US, we are seeking a legal representative capable of: -*At a minimum* providing an experience based approximation of wait time we can expect from our current stage of processing through day of interview with the Bogota consulate -Providing an experience based approximation of wait time for change of status once we are legally married in the US (and advising whether typical processing times have been extended to any degree) -Making inquiries with the NVC and/or US Consulate in Bogota concerning the status and progress of the processing of our case -Deploying any and all tactics able to expedite our K1 and change of status processes including but not limited to soliciting relevant government agencies or officials to intervene on our behalf Are these services within you or your firm's wheelhouse? If not, are you able to direct me to a more appropriate resource?
For people who went with their attorney to the Citizenship interview, what was your experience like? Reason I am asking is, it seems it’s normal for an attorney to go with you for AOS, ROC etc. I don’t see the same for citizenship interviews. So does taking an attorney to the citizenship interview even if they are just to sit and observe signal to the IO that something might be wrong with your case? Note: I know it isn’t necessary to go with an Attorney to the interview and there is not much they could do. I just want to know the experience of people who had their attorneys present at the interview.
