  1. Hello, anyone know how much at least there should be for Part 3 question 3 (savings and checking accounts) and 4 (personal property) for I-134 form? Also, what is considered personal property? My fiance definitely earns more than the $20k per year. Please advise for this section?
  2. My fiance's application was recently mailed from the NVC to the embassy in Phnom Penh. I only received an email notifying me of this. I have not received any letters in the mail stating the next steps. My fiance is from Cambodia where mail is not easy to deliver. Should we complete the DS-160 now or wait for the Embassy to send us some information? Does anyone have any experience with the embassy in Phnom Penh?
  3. Can anyone please help? My gf and I have been together for about two years. Finally her ex-husband (USC) has filed for divorce from CA. They have been apart for ten years. Since we have the divorce decree, can I apply for the K1 visa for her to fly here and be married in 90 days without dealing with the Philippines Annulment process? Is the divorce decree all the US Embassy need for us to apply for the visa?
  4. We sent our documents to Uscis on December 31, we didn’t hear nothing from uscis so my fiancé decided to call them. They give him the receipt number, so we check our case online and I’m a lil worry! Case status below ..
  5. Hi guys, I'm about to petition my fiancee for K1 visa and about to file the I-129F Form and have really a complicated scenario; my fiancee had a child with a previous unofficial marriage (Married but traditional so no official recognised marriage certificate) and they are not involved anymore. does she have to declare she had a child, if yes wouldn't they ask divorce certificate and since they weren't married officially how to explain that, i would really appreciate if you guys give me anything. Thanks.
  6. Does this link (form) provided below mean that both me (petitioner) and my friend (potential sponsor with me) will be both sponsoring my fiance or is it only for one person to do this? If it's only for one where do I find the form for us both to sponsor my fiance? Also, where should this form be going? https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/form/i-134.pdf
  7. My fiancé and I are working on filing our DS-160 as required. We received our letter asking us to fill this out on February 4th, 2019. We sent out our original petition (I-129F) on May 31st, 2018. We received our approval notice on November 18th, 2018. Now we are filling out the DS-160 but it says that our I-129F expired in March 2019. Will this be a problem if that petition expires? We have been filing out everything as soon as we get it, but it has just been taking such a long time to receive each next step letter and now our I-129F is about to expire? What do we do? Thank you!
  8. Hi everyone! So I am currently going through the K-1 visa process with my fiancé who lives in Afghanistan. His interview was in April and we have been in AP ever since. Every once in a while my fiancé and I would email the U.S. embassy in Kabul to ask for an update and they would always reply with a really generic email. I emailed them first week of December and then my fiancé emailed them in the middle of December but they still haven’t replied. Has this happened to anyone else? What did you do ? Was hoping maybe this was a a sign that they are almost done ?
  9. Hi! My fiance had his interview in Rio (1/22) and he was put on AP. Today they emailed asking him for his social, phone #s, travel last 15 year, etc...basically I researched and saw these are the DS5535 questions. I'm wondering if anyone from Latin America has gone through a similar experience and how long they went through AP? I've seen a lot cases from the middle east that took 5+ months, but I'm wondering if anyone in Brazil or Latin America is in the same boat. My fiance is a Cuban refugee in Brazil. FYI. We turned in all documents asked at the interview. Thx in advance!
  10. Hello! I was just wondering of what exactly to do after our K1 visa is approved? 🙂 what forms to work on, what processes to follow, my fiancé’s work visa, maybe if there is a master list on visajourney I could refer to, to start from? I just don’t want to miss a thing and I want to do this entire process properly for the both of us. I just want to stay with my love. I know there are a bunch of tiny little details and stipulations, and I really want to make sure everything goes smoothly. He lives in Ireland if that helps any. Thank you so much!
  11. These are a bit silly but big mistakes, but this happened: I put my mother's maiden name on the two previous denied visas. What would happen if now in the format of the K1 place the last name of married? I think that having both incongruous formats could cause me a problem, but I do not know. Could you help me? Thank you!
  12. Hi everyone! So, my fiancé and I sent off our I-129f around December 10th, 2018. And unfortunately I am just about to get my passport for the first time in my life (my fiancé visited me from Ireland so he has his passport) I’m about to get mine on February 4th, 2019. My fiancé’s passport expires around summer, but he’s just about to get his renewed as well about the same time (February 4th, 2019). My question would be, would they be able to see this about our passports when they look up our info on us? Or does it even matter? Could it even be grounds for denial? I sent in my birth certificate as proof of citizenship, and along with his just for extra proof for him, along with absolutely everything else necessary, checking definitely 10+ times. Thank you so much for your help! >~< 🙂
  13. i would like to ask if an ofw fiance left his/her employer(not finishing contract of employment) and went back to home country( where he/she wants to have interview) while K1 visa on process will affect K1 visa approval?
  14. Hi everyone! So, my fiancé and I sent off our i129f around December 10, 2018. We are now looking to update our passports this week as my fiance’s is older and well, I honestly don’t have one yet, but of course I sent in my birth certificate. I checked the i129f about 10 times before sending it in and that is truly no exaggeration. We are looking to update any needed vaccinations too of course for my fiancé before the NOA2, hopefully to god an approval. I know that I must do thorough research on the embassy we will have our interview at, amongst other things. Well. While my fiancé was here with me, he actually lived with me for 2 months, he lived with me and my family, which I know is unconventional, but I and my family have never been happier than that time actually. They could see how in love we are and he instantly became part of the family. In our i129f, I included pictures of just him and I and also some with us and the family, and letters from my parents stating how they love him as well, and how they’re more than willing for him to live with us until we get steady financially. I basically let the USCIS know we have a plan already financially as well, and included an affidavit of support from both of my parents and all the requirements too (even though I know it’s not necessary yet) and we’re already saving money up as I write this. And my parents meet the financial requirements as well thankfully, very well. My question is, with this info I provided which was even more thorough in the i129f than I just stated, what do you think the chances are of getting approved with the NOA2? Because sometimes I’m crawling up the wall with nerves, and other days I’m fine. Thank you so much for your feedback if you choose to and for reading this 🙂 you are helping me so much more than you know ;~;
  15. Hey guys! How is everyone? I am having problem getting social here in the US. I arrived here last Nov 11 and applied for ssn Nov 15. And then I got married Dec 22, 2018. And after more than a month of patiently waiting, today, January 4th, my husband and I decided to go to SSA office to ask for update since we havent received anything in the mail at all. And I read blogs about how ssa staff doesnt know what they are doing sometimes and I think the one we went to is one of them. 😔 They kept telling me they are having issues on the system and it kept saying “Alien Mismatch”. they said they've been trying to do it over and over since I applied and contact DHS but they havent gotten anything really. And then they also said that maybe the reason why is because I am on k1 visa and not allowed to work in the US that’s why SSA cannot issue me a number. (i didnt correct them here since I know I’m not gonna win.) but they said the bottom line is the “Alien Mismatch” they are getting. I am so confused right now cuz my i-94 is only valid until Feb 2. And we are just starting to file for aos. anyone has experience about this? any answer will be appreciated. Thank you!
  16. Hi Good day, Can someone here enlighten me how much time do usually it takes from noa2 (Approval Notice) to scheduling an interview with US embassy Abu Dhabi for k1 Visa. Do we need for the email from the us embassy Abu Dhabi before scheduling a medical and interview and filling up the ds160 form? Thank you In advance
  17. Hi, can anyone tell me what documents exactly are required for my fiancee that I'm petitioning for? Do I need to send her everything that I sent in with my application to USCIS?
  18. Hello, I came to the US on a K1 visa and our relationship was bona fide. I got my first green card without an interview. When I applied for ROC, I was still with my husband so we filed a joint petition. A few months later, he had an affair and physically abused me. I eas so devastated and depressed. I waited months to finally let go of him and I filed for divorce. I'm in school and working full time so I didnt have time to get to completel the new ROC package to let uscis know I got divorced recently and my I751 was approved before I could let them know. What do I do now? I still want to let them know but I'm approved now so should I just wait for naturalization to let them know? That would look bad though. Please help!
  19. PLEASE DO NOT REPLY IF YOU ARE NOT A FILIPINA WHOSE BEEN ANNULLED OR DIVORCE TO A FOREIGNER then filed a K1 visa 😊 Hi everyone i just want an enlightenment about my situation. Here’s my story. I got married to a korean back in 2014, we decided to file a divorce. Then later on i go back to the Philippines. I filed a Recognition of Divorce Decree in RTC , and i got my finality and decision already also I registered it in PSA. Then i met my fiance, we are under k1 and waiting for NoA2. I am worried about RFE because my original divorce paper from korea is already registered in Manila Registry where I can only get a certified true copy (its needed to be filed in Manila City Hall my lawyer told me and it is really required when filing a case) In my I 129f packet I sent my fiance this ; Certified True copy of my divorce paper from korea and its translated in english (xerox copy only with stamp and signature 😞) , certified true copy of the Finality and decision (with stamp and with signature of the clerk from the RTC office) and Original Copy of Annotated Marriage Certificate from PSA (which in the side its indicate the court decision) my question is, DO YOU THINK USCIS WILL STILL ASK FOR MY ORIGINAL DIVORCE DECREE from KOREA? I cant get an original copy of it , my ID which is the visa too is expired already. 😞 please help to those filipina who has the same situation like me. Thank you! God bless
  20. Hi im just curious, does anybody here who is processing their k1 FIANCE VISA at USEM ABU DHABI, got their approval (NOA2)July 2018 and still waiting for packet 3? I hope we can update each other here
  21. It's been difficult to book appointments at the Lagos consulate.
  22. So we sent off our i129f, and got back our entire packet (original docs, intent forms, travel docs, everything etc.) with the notice that we must resubmit our forms with the correct fee. I sent in 540$, just in case anything went wrong with the payment. “I don’t know, extra money couldn’t hurt” was what was going through my mind, but it seems they want EXACTLY $535. It says in the notice to send the correct fee, everything else seems to be perfectly fine with the forms thankfully, except they wrote on the bottom of every single document of what I sent in, even our supporting documentation. My question: Am I supposed to redo this entire i129f, with original signatures (i.e., signatures from my fiancé across the world for the letter of intent), or just redo and resubmit the i129f forms since they wrote on them with the correct payment? Thank you for reading this far if you did! I’m so sorry, could never be too safe. Thank you again everyone.
  23. So yes, I just sent off our I-129f forms, and I’m actually feeling pretty confident about it. I’m actually feeling extremely excited to finally be able to start the process of marrying my incredible Sean, and to be done with this stressful and tedious portion. I was so careful. We were so careful. Now, is there anything else between now and awaiting the NOA 1 and 2 and interview process that I should know about or do? Perhaps gather? Or my fiancé? Thank you so much for the help! I can’t explain how grateful I am for this visajourney community, thank you all so much for your help.
  24. Hi! My fiancé just got done sending me his signed US sized passport-like photos all the way from Ireland, and unfortunately, we both made a mistake and he only signed them in cursive. He didn’t sign them in print, only cursive. His first and last name of course, but just cursive. If I were to send these to the USCIS, does anyone think this would warrant an RFE or denial? Or must it be in print? This most likely sounds like overthinking, but can never be too safe I’d assume. Thank you so much for your help!
  25. Hi guys! I’m so worried! I had my interview on Nov 06 and I was approved, no pending documents. After it my CEAC status was Administrative Processing, then on the 08 became Ready, on the 09 it had another update to Ready and since that never changed again 😭 Everybody is getting their passport back and I'm stuck. It that meantime we had 2 holidays in my country and 2 in America. I'm from Brazil not a travel ban country so what is going on? Even with the holidays people are receiving their passport. Anyone went through similar case? Please, help me!
