  1. I'm new to this community and lets just say I'm glad the paperwork is finally in. I did all of my paperwork by myself and it took me months just to make sure I had everything in order. I sent my packet in on Aug.16,2018 and got my certified mail receipt back in 4 days. I received my Noa On Aug. 23, 2018. I just hope and pray that the wait times that I see online aren't as bad as they say. Was told by immigration filing a K-3 was not worth the time since processing is actually taking longer than the I- 130. So best of luck Keep me posted on your progress..
  2. I know another medical exam isnt necessary, since the one that was done for K1 hasnt expired yet, but did you just bring the DS-3025 to the interview or get it transcribed by civil surgeon? I did not incl the I-693 in the AOS packet, just the DS-3025, no RFE was given but now it's time for interview...
  3. Hi all, I've searched and combed through previous/existing threads where people share information/experiences on civil surgeons in specific areas; however, I've not yet come across any in my area (Charlotte NC area, specifically Rock Hill SC). The closest recommendation we've gotten is a doctor in Winston Salem, which is about 2 hours away, so we have that as a last resort. But I'd prefer not having to drive 4 hours round trip just for someone to sign off on some vaccinations, if we can help it. Some background: My husband completed his immigration physical in Sweden prior to coming in on his K1 visa (physical was in February, POE was May). His vaccination record was filled out, but not marked as Completed by the doctor in Sweden as a result of this doctor recommending he wait and get the one remaining vaccine (TDAP) in the states. My husband got the TDAP vaccine last week with our doctor here in SC. So now we just need a designated civil surgeon to complete his vaccination record to show he's fulfilled his vaccination requirements. I used the Civil Surgeon Locator on the USCIS website, which yielded a plethora of local offices (mostly in Charlotte, one conveniently in Rock Hill). The conundrum - every. single. office. I've called on that list does not pose as a viable option. Half of them didn't seem to understand any of the immigration terms I used, much less made it pretty clear they can't complete any immigration form. Only one office sounded like they had a clue; however, they said my husband had to be seen/complete a full exam with them, including tests he already had done, before they can fill out any form. I'd rather not. I've heard most say some offices will try to charge 100s of dollars, or require unnecessary physicals or exams, but it seems that's ALL we're running into. My question now - anyone in or near the Charlotte NC area who has had to have a vaccination record completed - recommendations would be most helpful!
