Are you really from Nicaragua?

Seems like a funny question. Yes, My fiancé (Michael) is Nicaraguan.
RoxyJen on 2020-03-08 said:
Good to hear, I'm nicaraguan too and hopping to join my fiancée soon

What's the RFE for? if I may ask
blank avatar SMMT on 2020-03-10 said:
USCIS asked for additional proof of our intent to marry once in the states. They wanted a clear letter of intent from one of us which stated clearly the desire to marry. We wrote new/additional letters and also sent letters from five family members and friends that know of our plans. We also sent pictures of us at Christmas and New Years this past December/January and a letter from a person who I've talked with about wedding details. I hope its sufficient. Our love and plans are real.
RoxyJen on 2020-03-10 said:
Omg! What else do they need!!!! They're just delaying the process, if you have sent the letter previously and proper documents proving your relationship then what else do they need?? That's nonsense
RoxyJen on 2020-03-10 said:
If you've bought the rings maybe you can send them the receipt
blank avatar SMMT on 2020-03-10 said:
Well... I do believe they are "diligently" going through the application. They are giving everything scrutiny. If I were in there place. I might do the same. I did send a receipt for two bracelets we bought together. They were fairly expensive. That was also meant to prove our relationship. I hope to hear soon. The RFE said we should hear back within 60 days. Information on this website states that the average for the California office is around 30 days after receiving the RFE reply. Sooo... we wait.
RoxyJen on 2020-03-10 said:
Well you're right, let's wait, I'm really hoping you hear something soon, keep the good vibes

Hey there! Have you called the NVC for your case number to find out if it has left the offices to come here to Nicaragua? US embassy here was not working but it's up and running again
blank avatar SMMT on 2020-04-05 said:
Hello! I called NVC last week and they had not received anything from USCIS. Then on the 1st of April I called again and got my case number and IIN. They said I should be getting an email from them with instructions. They also said there is nothing I need to do until I get the instructions. I don't think they have sent anything to Managua yet. I think the embassy is not open for interviews or in-person meetings. Have you heard that they are doing interviews in Managua?
RoxyJen on 2020-04-05 said:
Yes I have! It's open it's just that it may take some time cause they're only doing about 50 interviews per day, not sure if it's in general immigrant and non immigrant, they take your temperature right before you get in, they were closed for about 2 weeks but I was off yesterday and passed by the embassy, I saw people making a line to go inside, let's stay positive hopefully your file will come here by the middle of this month which should be the closest shipping date, keep me posted 😊
RoxyJen on 2020-04-15 said:
Hi! So glad to see your file is coming 🎉🎉🎉 question: what documents did they ask you for your fiancee's interview?
blank avatar SMMT on 2020-04-15 said:
Hello! I got the email today saying that the petition is being sent to the embassy. The letter does not state what/which documents they will require. I guess the embassy will let us know what is needed once they assemble the packet. If you like we could communicate by WhatsApp? Would you want to exchange numbers?
RoxyJen on 2020-04-15 said:
So you need to wait for the packet 4, really funny that NOA2 says we'll get instructions from NVC and then you need to wait for the embassy😒. Course I would! Here's mine +50589976769
RoxyJen on 2020-05-07 said:
Hey there!! Hope you're doing just fine, I waited and waited for your chat 😔
Harriett H on 2021-03-08 said:
Hello! I'm wondering if I can I ask you a couple of questions about your interview experience at the Managua embassy?
blank avatar SMMT on 2021-03-08 said:
Hi Harriet H! Sure! I'd be happy to answer a few questions for you. I can give you my email address. Maybe that would be better. smmtnicaragua@gmail.com

*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
