K1 experience London
Hi. I applied for my fiance visa in London, I am originally from South America but I met my boyfriend in London, as I was based in the Uk I had to do all the process there.
We got a lawyer from California, who did help a lot in filling the forms, assessing each step and clarifying information to us.
We started our process on November 2015, my boyfriend at that time had to get lots of form from his work, we had to provide a lot of documents, so we started organizing all the documents.
I will suggest to you to read this website and
as I did,so you will have step by step.
A couple of weeks later I got a letter from the US embassy in London that the petition from my fiance has been approved (Form I -29) so the next step was get an appointment and get ready more documents.
-Completed Form DS-160,
A passport valid for travel.
Divorce or death certificate(s) of any previous spouse.
Police certificates from your present country of residence and all countries where you have lived for six months or more since age 16
Medical examination (vaccinations are optional, see below)
Evidence of financial support (Form I-134, Affidavit of Support, may be requested from my fiance)
Two (2) 2x2 photographs.
Evidence of relationship with your U.S. citizen fiancé(e)
Payment of fees to the embassy

I applied online to get my appointment, meanwhile I was doing my medical check and the most difficult one was to get my police certificate, as some countries have different kind of police certificate and I had to ask to a family member as I don't have parents to do all that paper work in my country to get 2 different docs. for one of those I needed a letter from the embassy from my country and in my country had to be legalized to do the process, was painful that part.
My interview was on February, I had all my documents ready 2 weeks before, the medical check was easy and is a normal check, do not worry or stress, the staff in London are very professional and it was quick; I didn't have my vaccination card but in a blood test (Private)they can tell you which vaccination you already had so I showed in the medical exam my card with all the information. They said that they will send in a closed envelope to the embassy.
Interview at 8 am in the USA embassy from London

I arrived to the embassy 50 min before,7:10 am and the queue was long, as I had a letter from them with me they let me go in quick, I went trough the security, they check your belongings and they let you go in, in the door at the reception they will give you a ticket, that is the number you have to wait to see on the screen. At the embassy there is coffee and snacks so you can buy inside. I wasn't waiting long until they call my number, so I showed to the lady some documents, she sent me to seat and I will be called again, I was called after very long 10:45, then I gave some documents in another window, I got my medical results and a CD with my x ray, she said I have to give this envelope on July 2016 in the adjustment of my status, then she sent me to seat again and wait, 11:05 my number again on the screen and my interview, easy questions and some pictures, then was approved. ( How we met, what he was doing here, if I traveled to the USA, times we met , etc)
I flew to the USA on 3rd of March, I was nervous and at the POE they did check my passport, I had to provide the envelope, and literally are all your documents but has to be sealed, do not open. They officer has to open there. He didn't ask me much just why I was coming and said welcome to the US

I got married on 18 March, then we sent all the forms for the adjustment of my status on 18 of April I guess, and the certified copy from the marriage certificate took some week to be sent to home.
Few weeks after I got a letter for my finger print and picture
Then a letter to authorize me to work and few days later my card to work
Then some weeks later a letter for our interview.
Between all the letters you might get letters from them to let you know that your application is in process.

Today was our interview, and we were a bit nervous, but all went smoothly.
If is a true relationship you should be just fine, my husband and I watched few videos about questions on the day of your interview, and we asked questions each other, our attorney was also explaining us how it will be and Today finally was approved.
My husband and I we are so happy.

K1 petition sent back to NVC
I'm an applicant and my interview was on 14 July 2016
Me and my fiancée are in relationship since February 2014 and she filed me a petition on February 2016
She visited me in Indian every six months. This was her 3 visit to me to accompany in my interview. We had all the evidence all our chat records all our travel records every paper work is in order. We meet all the requirements. She already meet my parents 3 times and our relationship is already accepted by all our family members. Every thing was in perfect order.
Our petition got approved by USCIS every thing went smoothly
13 July was my biometric it was went good
14 July was my interview. Me and fiancée walked towards the window when we heard our service N127 number.
The interviewer was a man. He don't even introduced himself and no wearing badge, so we didn't even know his name.
He asked me who is with me. I reply "she is my fiancée and petitioners. He asked my fiancée name and where she lives. After that question, the interviewers order to sit my fiancée to place that we are waiting in a long hours of time.
My fiancée was wondering why the interviewer told her to sit down while she was permitted to accommodate me in my interview. Before this date interview happen, I called Delhi Embassy if my fiancée can come to my interview and they said yes as long as she can provide her U.S citizenship and valid passport.
My fiancée come to India to accompanied me for my interview, but the interviewer ordered her to sit down.
My interview was begun. There was some questions that I can't express probably but most I answered. Interviewers asked me to show our pictures, besides that he didn't even ask for more evidence of ours.
He let ordered me to sit for few minutes, then he called me again. Interviewer says " I'm sorry but I can't see your BONAFIDE relationship here.
My fiancée got up and walk towards the window. She asked " officer? What was wrong?
Interviewer said " sir I'm sorry instead to explain my fiancée. My fiancée keep asking to the interviewer.
My fiancée told the interviewer, that I came here from U.S to accompanied my fiancé, you didn't even talked to me, you don't even treated me as his fiancé! Is just because of the gap of our age or my past? ( my fiancée become emotional.
She want to talks more but I advised my fiancée to let's go.
When we reached the hotel where we stayed, my fiancée was crying out loud and she was very emotional.
She said, she feels that she mistreated, being ignored while I was struggling during my interview. My fiancée asked me to dial the embassy number. Someone answers and my fiancée explained ours situation and how she's feels.
After that we packed our stuff and started to drive going back my house while we both crying. It was 6 hours drive back home.
The following day July 15 we received the email from SUPPORT TRAVEL.IND.Docs.
It was stated that my case is opened and escalated being reviewed. The next day of July 16 2016 according to the updates, my case was in the DEPARTMENT OF STATE for adjudicative reviewed.
Then now July 21 2016, my case was reported returned to the NVC. Beforehand, I didn't received any letters after my interview from this interviewer. He never hand me anything only my passport.

So plz advise us something coz my fiancée still with me at my home and we are very stressed

Waiting for your kind response

Thank you so much

I am a felon in the U.S. who met my Fiance in the Philippines, who had proposed to me. I am now part of that HORRIBLE Waiting process of the K1 Fiance Process. She has a Son so it's K-2 for us as well.

Saw her last end of January 31, 2016.

January 31, 2016 - Kissed her Goodbye after spending a week with her, took plenty of photos and came back to the US
Filed 129F in Mid February I believe the 16th.
March 3, First Update that Dallas office received my file.
April 3, Next Update - File moved to California
May 3, Next Udpate - File was Transferred to Vermont (Claimed Overload of Files)
May 20, Next Update - I have take Biometrics - wait for Mailed info and appointment.
June 15, received mail stating GO TO BIOMETRICS for Fingerprinting and FBI Check
July 6 - Went to Biometrics, took about 20 minutes total.
July 7 - Checked online status, (Because I was Curious) stated "APPROVED" !!!

Will keep everyone posted - I made sure that My paperwork was correct and used an online help company for processing - well worth the $300-$500 your going to spend. Don't be in the dark. Get the Help. As you see by my Timeline - it's been almost 6 months since My Fiance has seen me in person - (SKYPE IS A GODSEND) - but she is going BONKERS over this wait.. It's a Killer. I am hoping that this all gets wrapped up in the next 2 months (END OF AUGUST TARGET) there are some other tips and tricks - but you can email me with any questions. GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU. OUR LOVED ONES ARE WORTH THIS HEADACHE !!

Hello to all, I just sent my fiancés K-1 paperwork to the Dallas office a few days ago. I know it takes a few weeks for them to send noticafication to me that they've received the paperwork. My question is that him and I plan to wed on December 11,2016. With that being 7 months away should we change the date? I am trying to figure out what the time will be from them approving the visa here, sending it to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, him getting his interview, him getting his visa to travel here. We are praying that all this can be done by the end of November so we can buy the plane ticket a week after he gets the approval. So I would like to know the timeframe from start to finish with him getting here from Ethiopia without there being in delay on our part. I've made sure I sent everything that was requested and I have copies for him also. So we just have to do the physical examination, get the police report, and rollout his application for his interview. We've already set aside his interview fee that's $295.00. If anyone can give me a timeframe of getting the person here to America without the other process of getting the green card. I should get a notice by mid-May saying they've gotten the paperwork. I just need to know if we should change our wedding day for 2017. Please help, thank you very much.

Financial stability
I am about to file for K1 visa and I've talked to attorneys and they said I need to provide proof that I can sustain my fiance here in US once he enters US, otherwise they wont give him the visa, also they said that a cosponser is not acceptable. I wonder if you guys had experience with this? Because reading the i129 form, nowhere do they ask for proof of financial income. So Im not sure what to do next? File anyway by myself? Also otehr then the i129 form, what other forms do I need to fill out?

No NOA2 Yet
To add my name to this list, we filed in Oct. 2015 and got NOA1 stamped on 28th. Not heard about NOA2 yet. Website shows no update. I tried to call but they got no info for me. The thing bothering me is that people my fiancee know, filed after us and they have NOA2s, and even interviews planned for January 2016. One person even filed a day after me. How these people, if the service offices do them in order of being received, are ahead of us? So this is my experience... stressful in waiting. What scares me is being denied for something because I am not perfect (no, no jail, drugs, owing $10000 to taxes [but school loans another matter]). So what is it? How a few other couples filed after me but got their NOA2s? We are on a time limit here but there seems to be nothing I can do.

I just sent the I-129F application and I would like to know the experiences of some Cubans if anyone browse here. I have been told by a Cuban I contacted on this website that his Fiance arrived to the US in 7 months from the moment he sent the application to USCIS.

Is there any other Cuban to share their experiences?
