  1. Following multiple setbacks, my medical is set to expire in August. The Montreal Consulate just requested ANOTHER document which they could have requested at the interview. The window for the actual move to USA is looking pretty tight right now. The process seems to be engineered for foreign spouses sitting overseas twiddling their thumbs, waiting for the golden doors to swing open so they can immediately flock into the USA. Some of us are working people and have complex affairs to settle once we finally get the visa. What is the best way to postpone the process to give us some more breathing space? I imagine I can request another medical? They have my passport, so would I need to request that back? Also, I think someone posted that the consular officer needs to approve another medical. Can someone advise on a suitable course of action?
  2. Hello there... I have a fiancé in India ...for whom I intend to file paperwork very soon within 2-3 months but I am not sure which route should I choose to in order to be together quickly. My options are as follow, and please give your opinions to help me out in deciding- (1) DCF = This option is not available in India as India doesn’t allow DCF. Besides, I am in US and not in India. (2) CR-1 =. I could marry my fiancé from India at any time, its not a problem, but I just checked USCIS website and it says that its taking 19.5 months to 24.5 months to process I-130 petition now in Vermont. I live in NY. Then it would take another 3-5 months or more to deal with NVC and Consulate. Thus, it would be a very long long time...Covid has changed its processing time completely. (3) K-1 = Its taking 7-11 months now...but the problem is- the consular officers in India are denying K-1 visa applications without giving any reason whatsoever and suggesting applicants to marry and file for CR-1. It has happened to 3 of my friends. If denied then all the money, time, energy in putting up the application/petition will be wasted for nothing and then will have to start from the beginning. Now, are they denying widely then I don’t know but they denied to 3 of my friends for no reasons and suggested them to do CR-1. It could be because India comes into their list of fraud. (4) K-3 = This option could go either way and would cost more money and more efforts but seems very quicker and viable option at least to ME. I could marry in India...then immediately file I-130 for CR-1 and once I get receipt for filing I-130 then I can immediately file for I-129f for K-3. Right now I-130 is taking 19-25 months to process in Vermont Service...so it can take whatever...and K-3 will be processed within 6-8 months. Yes, it would cost more money and more paperwork but at least I would be able to bring my fiancé (future wife) quickly and don’t have to always worried or having sword hanging over my head, by doing k-1 visa, that they might reject K-1 at the interview for no apparent reason and would suggest to go for CR-1 visa... This way, in my opinion, my fiancé (after marriage) could come to US within 7-9 months. So, PLEASE give your opinions, which would be greatly appreciated.
  3. hello all, I am filing the I-130 online. How do I upload the passport style photos? Scan and upload the paper copy or just upload an electronic version of the passport style photos instead? And why do they request a passport style photo at this point of the process? Thank you.
