Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 19, 2006
Embassy Review : Arrived at 9.30am, queued up for 40 mins(which was a nightmare in this heat). The queue moved quite quickly, went throught the security bit which was in a shed like thing,then went around the building and into the embassy.There were hundreds of people there..thought i was going to be there all day.Was given a number for an immigrant visa which is the correct one.Sat down,after approx 20 mins was called to a window where a man took our paperwork, birth certificates etc, then was told to go sit down and wait to be called for the interview.10 mins later we were called for the interview(they were very quick)The lady asked me,
how we met and when
have i been to see him and when
has he been to see me and when
had we met each others families
when were we getting married and where
where did Tony live
that was it, we did come across a sticky moment when asked if we had my sons fathers permission,which we didnt because we havent seen him for years and dont know where he is..the lady didnt like that idea, but called a man over who said it was ok as we had never been married and i had a sworn statement from a friend to say that there was no contact between my son and his father(the fathers choice)
they did not ask for tax returns,bank letters,emails phone bills or anything like that..only the things listed on the appointment letter...if anybody is going through the same situation where the childs other parent has no contact them please feel free to pm me for advice as it has took us 4 months to get an answer out of the embassy as to what can be used as proof of this.
All in all it was very easy and very quick, was in there a total of 45 mins
Rating : Very Good

*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
