Hola a todos.quisiera contar con la experiencia de algunos para que orienten. Soy residente en USA, hice la peticion para mi hija que ya cumplió 19 años y vive en Costa Rica,. Lo ultimo que envie al Centro Nacional de Visas fue el Affidavit of Support a inicios de Agosto, hace muchos años no estamos juntas por lo que comprenderan cada vez estoy mas ansiosa de que venga. Tengo que esperar que me llegue alguna carta donde tenga que pagar para una visa?(online) o puedo llenar antes la aplicacion y pago de la misma antes?, porq se que es casi lo ultimo antes de la cita para ella. . Ella tendra que hacerse exämenes tambien? O alguien sabe mas de este proceso. Gracias, todos los comentarios son interesantes y ayudan a muchas personas que tienen casos parecidos y dudas al respecto.

Hello everyone...thank you for taking the time to read this....my finance and i recently had our interview with the consulate....i have a few concerns from the interview that maybe some of you can help out with....my first concern is that some of the documents that were said to be required were not even asked for (examples...they did not ask for entire copy of everything from original I129F application, nor did they ask for a copy of the NOA2 acceptance form...i thought this to be odd since the official site said they were required for the interview). Also, I came to the country to support my fiancé, but was not allowed in the interview. My fiancé was asked about 30/35 questions, with only 6 or 7 pertaining to me (only 3 of which had to do with me and our relationship...the other questions had to do with what type of products i enjoyed for the sport i play...very odd)...what was even odder were that the other questions were things like, "where do my brothers work" & "what do they do"....seems like odd questions that have nothing to do with our engagement. No questions were asked about wedding, engagement ring, etc. The last thing that concerns us is that my fiancé worked as an accountant for a military firm for six months. He said that because she worked for military he would require "workbook" from employer and resume from my fiance (none of these documents were originally asked for....had they been we would have had them along with three copies like everything else.....we were very prepare)....we sent all of these materials back via email within four hours of the interview, but have yet to hear anything back....now we are having to wait until monday (or maybe longer) and of course it is the only thing we can think about.....i realize that our emotion may be strong due to our current feelings, but my last question would be what directs these officers? Is there some sort of oath they go by so that cases are done fairly and accurately? Thank you so much for your time in answering and reading my comment....any answers would be very helpful and hopefully put us at ease....thanks!

  I wonder how long we need to wait for our case number, our approval of NOA2 was July 16 2015, and since then we are waiting for our case number, is there possibility that it will take few months to get case number? and what if we still don't have it until our approval expired?

my fiance filed the I-129F last December 8,2014 and we received Notice of Action 1 stating that USCIS received our case last December 10,2014.Our problem is until now (August, 2015), we have not received our Notice of Action 2. we always call and inquire to USCIS website about our case but the reply was "pending consideration". I am here in the Philippines and my fiance is in America and it is just very hard to have a long distance relationship. may i ask if we still have a chance to have the Notice of action 2 and be approved? or it will just be denied since it is almost 8 months of waiting? i hope we are not just waiting for nothing..

On May 1st of this year I received Form I-797 confirming that my I-129f K-1 Visa application had been accepted by the lock box facility in Texas and forwarded to the California Service Center for processing. I have a receipt number. When I try to check the status of my application I get this message:"At this time the USCIS cannot provide you with information for your case. Please contact NCSC 1(800)375-5283 for additional infomation"
Has anyone else had this problem ? It seems like the California Service Center should be able to tell me more than that. For example, "We have received your application and It will processed in the order received"

Thank you.

My fiancé was denied in April 23, 2015 in the Philippines. The reason for denial is under section 221g. and being returned to the USCIS. We were both heartbroken for we both are eager to get married and spend our life together here in the USA. I thought it’s because it is real, that there will be no problem getting a visa. I even purchased him a plane ticket to travel in May 15 and plan to get married in May 22, 2015
I met my fiancé in 2011.
In 2012, my daughter has decided to have a wedding in my hometown in the Philippines. I built a house before we all went home for the wedding.
Since nobody will live at my newly built house, first asked my fiancé (no relationship yet at that time) a favor to go to my house to turn on the light at night and turn off in the morning. After few weeks, people are saying that if my house will not be occupied, ghost or bad spirit will live there. I asked my fiancé to please sleep at my house. I gave him 50 pesos every day or 1500 a month to pay for his transportation back and forth to his house. Although Bible Study has begun at my house every Saturday, still there has to be somebody to live there. I did not consider him as a caretaker, because I just asked a favor to let him stay at my house just for the bad spirit not to occupy. Since people are telling him that he was my caretaker, he then considered himself as a caretaker.
In April 2014 I went home again for my yearly Gift Giving to the less fortunate children. Because of the qualities I have seen in him, (quiet, shy, polite, honest and caring, soft spoken), he won my trust. At my age of 65, it would be impossible and embarrassing that I might fall in love to a 40 years old man, never had a girlfriend but love his mom so dearly, that impressed me. I did not pay attention of my feeling, all I know was I was very happy when he was around and that I miss him. He doesn’t know how to express his love to a woman, never had experienced. It all started with a joke and mutual understanding was established. I found in him the qualities of a man that I want to spend the remaining years of my life. I came back to the USA in May 2014. Due to age difference, my religious belief and culture, my reputation I need to control and protect myself not too show too much closeness not until after the marriage.
It was then that I felt that I really was in love with him. To me, i am still embarrassed but this is my real feeling. I can’t believe that i will fall in love again and yet to a young man. I missed him so much that I went back in October 2014, not only to spend the All Saint’s day but to see him. We were both so happy together; we were together the whole duration of my 2 week vacation. I came back to the USA in November and I told him that I want to marry him here in the USA. He was so happy because he thought that we will just live together in the Philippines when I retire. I cannot without marriage. I can’t afford to be hurt or heartbroken.
In December of 2014, our first Christmas and New Year Celebration together. At my age, now I realized that all I want is to have peace and joy in the remaining years of my life. He always tells me that he never thought that he’s going to have a chance to be married. He is always grateful that someone whom he secretly admired could notice him. I can’t believe what love can do. I went to the Philippines 3 times in 2014. THERE IS NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD.

The 221g which my fiancé received did not say anything what we should do to prove that there is a bona fide relationship. He provided pictures, but they did not look at our bank account and phone calls, Please advise us what to do. We want to be together please help.

We saw today when we check our visa status in USCIS website by entering our receipt number "SRC15900xxxxx "it says that "Request for Initial Evidence Notice Was Mailed".

Our first NOA1 date is 3rd Nov 2014, after 165 days the case status changed for the request of initial evedence.
