crmathew1 posted a topic in IR-1 / CR-1 Spouse Visa Case Filing and Progress ReportsSo I need some input into what to do with our lives, because NVC and consulates and everything is literally messing up our lives. I filed for a cr1 petition and initially asked for the abu dhabi embassy since my husband lives and works in Dubai but then saw on VJ that Abu dhabi is having major delays scheduling interviews. I got my NOA 2 on Jan 4, 2018, it was sent to NVC on Feb 1 and received by NVC on Feb 9 and we still don't have a case number. Since my husband is an Indian national we were going to transfer the consulate to India but then just found out yesterday that New Delhi consulate won't be processing anymore CR1 visas so all the CR1 visas in India will now be processed in the Mumbai consulate. To put things in perspective, Abu Dhabi processed 5 CR1 visas in January, New Delhi processed 111, and Mumbai Processed 238. So we are definitely going ahead with the transfer (which takes upto two weeks to get a new case number but shouldnt affect the rest of the NVC process according to the agents I spoke to). Now I don't know how long Mumbai interviews will be delayed. Before it was an average of 2 months from case complete to interview in Mumbai. My husband needs to serve a 2 month notice period in Dubai so my real question is: WHEN SHOULD HE RESIGN SO THAT HE WONT BE WITHOUT A JOB FOR TOO LONG IN INDIA BUT STILL HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO COME TO INDIA AND DO THE MEDICAL AND BIOMETRICS AND EVERYTHING AND A COUPLE OF WEEKS THERE BEFORE THE INTERVIEW SO HE CAN COME HERE STRAIGHT AFTER THE INTERVIEW AND VISA APPROVAL? WHAT SHOULD WE DO?? I know this is long and confusing but if anyone could give me any suggestions/input, I would really appreciate it. This forum has been my support group throughout this process and I really appreciate everyone who takes their time out to post here! Thanks in advance
