Comments : The K-1 journey is over for us at this time; we decided not to file again; can't believe it has been 2 1/2 years since we filed the petition. Anyway, the journey works both ways, rather than being together in the US, we are going to be together in India. We are very happy to finally get to be together somewhere in the world. Do not know if we will ever try another way to the US but for now, all is good.

Consulate Review: Mumbai, India
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 11, 2013
Embassy Review : We were, I think, not approved due to our age difference and my previous marriages. Officially it is a 221-G for recent evidence of relationship. So I would say it was a sad experience. My fiance' could barely speak to me, after 6 hours of sitting in a room at the consulate, being interviewed and waiting. He said many different officers came in and out, some nice, some shouting. At first a one said OK, so he thought it would get approved, then others came in and out. That is when they inferred it was just drama, no one could love one another as we say we do, because I am too old etc. They said one of us must have paid the other one to do this, they did not care that we have known one another for 3 years now; made no difference. Although last CO wasn't saying he would not get the Visa, she also did not say he would. They kept everything, new emails, cards, etc, but not the passport. Hope we get another shot at it!

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
