Comments : The entry officer grilled my husband about the fact that "he wasn't paying for the wedding". My husband deduced that he was trying to irritate his ego to get him to confess if he's coming with a bunch of money or something. I just wonder if he's stuck in last century where women "can't possible take care of themselves". Ha!

Other than that, was a very smooth process

Consulate Review: Nicaragua
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 23, 2016
Embassy Review : Went very smoothly. There is just a lot of sitting and waiting. Waiting for them to call your number. Waiting to go up to the counter after they call your number. If you have all of your documents in order, you have nothing to be worried about. First counter we went to, the lady just looked at all of our documents to make sure they were in order. Then we sat down again and waited for the next consulate to call my fiancé's name. When we went up there, he'd already been looking at our folder and all of the evidence that I had submitted with the original I-129f form. I was prepared with several other pieces of proof showing the legitimacy of our relationship and the guy never asked to see it. Same questions at the first person did which were:

" how long have you known each other"
"When did you first meet "
" are you going to live"

Came at 8:45 left the embassy about 3:30
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
