Port of Entry : Orlando
POE Date : 2005-11-08 Submit Review
Got EAD Stamp : No
Biometrics Taken : No
Harassment Level : 0
Comments : I was sent to wait in the Immigration Office waiting area, was told my K1 would have to be processed. After waiting maybe 30 minutes (felt longer!) and watching out the window as the Immigration Officers went back & forth with my paper work. An Immigration Officer enters the room and informs me that I shouldn't leave the country until after I've married and filed my paperwork or I wouldn't be allowed back in. I was also told that my K1 was valid for 90 days and I must marry within the time frame.

All in all quick & easy!

Comments : Arrived 30 minutes before scheduled appointment time and told to return in 20 minutes, returned and waited about 30 more minutes in the waiting area. Called by a nice interviewer and sworn in, asked for marriage license copy.. then asked about when my wife and when we met, her date of birth and other random questions about us. Melissa was asked similar questions, my mothers name when I got here, if any of us were married before.. etc. Asked if I knew my SSN which I quoted and displayed the card to the interviewer. We both displayed our Driving Licenses to the interviewer which were inspected; I was asked my home address and phone number. We were also asked to present documents showing we live together, bills, bank statements, lease agreement.. etc. never asked to see a pictures or any other documents.

The interviewer took out my I-94, left the cubicle and came back with a box, inside of which was a band spanking new I-551 stamp. I never did ask for the stamp, I forgot about it when I seen the I-94 coming out of the passport. Passport was stamped with a big red temporary I-551 stamp good for a whole year. We had reached the end of our journey!

*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
