FEE: $350 fee is charged for the K1 Applicant, plus an additional $350. for EACH Child (K2).
Attempted to pay $700. USD cash in Guangzhou CITIC bank as required (fiance plus 1 child), but the bank charged an addl. $235. yuan, even tho I was paying with USD going to the US Consolate. I protested, to no avail.
The instructions in packet 3 and 4 didn't make this clear to me, but form DS156 IS required to be submitted for each K2 child applicant, in duplicate, but all other forms just for K1.
Advice: If you have a child under the age of 5, TAKE THE CHILD to the interview. They will put you near the front of the line, and if the child is fussy (and you're legit and have all paperwork in order), the interviewer will be more inclined to cut it short and get you out of there.
Interview primarily in chinese language, but if fiance' can answer some in english, no matter how broken, it shows an effort and will be received as a positive point.
Apartments available adjacent to interview location not very nice, but the experienced advice of the owner and his wife are invaluable and probably worth camping out there for a day or two for that reason. He also can get you a discounted rate at a nearby 4 star hotel.
i was married in the Philippines in 1981. When I came to America as a working visa and I left my husband in the Phil. our marriage failed and I annuled our marriage in 1990.In 1990, I got married to an American citizen and have 2 children from him. IN 2008, we divorced. In 2010, me and my ex husband from the Phil, get back with each other. I am doing my fiancee petition for him. I learned that our annulment in the Phil was not legalized since I did it when I was still on a working Visa. He's stll in the Phil and he's still married in the NSO from me. Now, what civil status shall I put on his biography?

My fiance is from the country Georgia but used to live in Russia
I met my fiance in the year 2003 while studying in Moscow, Russia. I speak russian fluently having studied in russia for 5 yrs.
I have been dating her now for 7 yrs now. Of the 7 yrs i have gone to visit her 6 times with the latest being this month March 2010 when i went to visit her in her native country Georgia and met her whole extended family which i had already known by now.
I proposed to her and we are now officially engaged and would like to bring her over to the US and marry her. This i know for sure after dating her that long that she is the one for me.
I live in alexandria VA and wanted to know how long the process takes.
Ive read and it stated that 1st of all the application submitted by me has to be approved. Whats the time frame from personal experience.
basically i have no idea on the time frame on the steps.
