Hi there.. I’m curious as to when you filed the K3 paperwork ? Thanks so much and congratulations on the super quick approval. I filed 4 days after you, but didn’t file the K3 as yet.

Congratulations on receiving your interview date you guys! Did you expedite your case at all?

Thanks! Yes, our case was expedited after DQ.

Can I ask what your expedite reason was? I think it's time I do something like that - we got married in April 2018 and have been going through the process since May 2018 - almost 2.5 years now... if we hadn't invested so much time and money we'd honestly just be so over it now.

*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
