  1. We are all keeping track of the slow processing at ISL embassy for IR1/CR1. Wanting to start this thread to share IL/DQ dates, interview tips or questions and spread hope. 😇
  2. Hi My father who's 58 years old, got married about 3 years ago to a woman in Pakistan. She currently is at NVC stage waiting to get Documantirily Qulified. Once that is done it looks like US embassy is very backlogged in Pakistan and it can be up to 2 years before getting interviewed. Now only issue is my father is 58 and also diabetic and lives alone at his residence, I'm locked in my apartment lease and can't move with him because of that. Looking at his age and health condition would there be a way we can expedite the interview if so where do I reach and how long would it take. Thank you. ( I know 58 doesn't sound that old in US but, coming from a Pakistani family and seeing so many of my relatives barely making to 60s feels scary )
  3. Hello All please help me out, filling out i130 form online for my spouse and I am stuck at Part 5 Question is "Have you EVER previously filed a petition for this beneficiary or any other alien? Should I Say "YES"? since I applied for my both parents back in 2021 and they are approved. my second question is if I choose here YES then the online application allowing me to put the information for only one parent. means, I only can put the information about my Mother either my father not for the both parents. so what should I do in this situation for better understand my question I uploaded the snapshot s of the screen where i am having a hard time. any help is appreciated.

  4. Current status: CASE IS READY IN CEAC FOR 2 weeks now nvc- Documentary Qualified I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW LONG IS CURRENTLY THE WAITING TIME TO GET INTERVIEW LETTER FOR THE US EMBASSY IN ISLAMABAD WITH APPROVED EXPEDITED PROCESSING. I received email 2 weeks ago that the embassy will contact me soon. Thanks
  5. Hello all! Hope this finds you all well! I've been having a recurring worry, was hoping I could put it to rest with your guys' help. I'll try to be concise. I'm a US citizen. Went to Pakistan to study 10 years ago. Got married (to ex wife) 8 years ago who came from Canada, but marriage was in Pakistan. Finished university in 2019 and moved back to Nevada 2019. Ex wife and I got a divorce in early 2021 in Nevada (she mailed her paperwork from Canada, everything was uploaded to the Court website as the court was closed due to COVID). Originally I had filed a petition for the ex wife but rescinded it because of the divorce, so she never interviewed. I then got married to my (current) wife Q3 of 2021 in Pakistan. My question is this: since my first marriage was in Pakistan, then my divorce was in US (because I moved back to the states in 2019), then my next marriage was in Pakistan in 2021, will that be an issue? I did do some research on this issue a few years back and came across reciprocation, in that a US divorce is (apparently) valid in Pakistan. But now I'm just wanting to double check that. Any insight would be greatly appreciated please
  6. My fiancé went for his interview on the 11th of October. He received a white 221g slip and on the bottom the CO wrote “sent to USCIS for revocation.” Ceac date was updated on the 13th after his interview and showing Ready still. On US travel docs it’s showing this message “passport is still with embassy” (it’s not with them it’s with my fiancé and I’m not even sure if the website always said that or not). interview: fiancé arrived- woman asked for some documents- she took my 2020 w2 and tax transcripts but not my 2021. She didn’t take my affidavit of support. She didn’t look at our messages or call logs. She didn’t look at our western union or rent receipts. She didn’t look at our itinerary. (This woman was a third party Pakistani National not American citizen) fiancé went to CO window and he only said these things- how did you meet? what does she do for work? how old are you both? (He’s in his 20s I’m in my 30s with a 10 yr age gap) all he said to him was “that’s unusual” about our age gap and then wrote on the white 221g slip “revocation” and said the interview is done with no answer about any evidence we need just that it’s over and slammed the window in our face. Wanted to share this experience in case for others to see or if they had something similar happen and what was the outcome.
