@sisiorente, I am very sorry to hear about your experience. May it be just a delay!

I have general question please. Does it indicate anything if after the interview, the VO request for a document and return the passport back with a comment that she was doing so because she doesn't know when the requested document will be submitted?

Send the requested documents via dhl with the passport back. Once they request for additional documents, they give you your passport back to send with the requssted documents.

You'll be denied if you mention it during your interview. You can't be married and yet seek to get fiance visa at the same time, they will deny you and advice you go the spousal visa route.

Bro, do I need to book a date for the medicals or just straight walk in?

Divorce paper for traditional wedding is gottem from Customary Courts. Divorce paper for others is from a competent High Court. Ask a lawyer for confirmation.

Good morning,so this is my first time here and I have a couple of questions tho my petition is yet to be approved,my fiancée filed in March
1. How long should I be looking at for the approval of the petition.
2. Are there any process to speed up approval
3.i saw a thing about some people who had traditional marriage been refused,in my own case,we just had a traditional engagement and she even put evidences of payment to the vendors for the engagement in the petition.does this mean that it may not be approved or even if it’s approved,can it jeopardize my chances of getting a visa?

Nothing to be done to speed the process. Just wait for it to be approved. Regarding the traditional engagement, you can explain, legitbachelor will explain more on that.

1. How long should I be looking at for the approval of the petition.
It takes an average of 5 to 7 months.

2. Are there any process to speed up approval
Yes there is an option to expedite the process. The request to expedite the process should be based on at least one of the following:

a) Severe financial loss to person
b) Emergency situation
c) Humanitarian reasons
d) USCIS error or
e) Compelling interest of USCIS.

Note however that they hardly grant expedition request

3.i saw a thing about some people who had traditional marriage been refused,in my own case,we just had a traditional engagement and she even put evidences of payment to the vendors for the engagement in the petition.does this mean that it may not be approved or even if it’s approved,can it jeopardize my chances of getting a visa?
If brideprice was paid then it's considered marriage. Based on the rule of reciprocity, whatever is considered marriage here in Nigeria is considered as marriage by the US. The USCIS guys might approve it because they don't know our customs but the US Embassy guys might have issues with it and might recommend spousal visa. So if the traditional engagement is not actually considered as marriage by your customs and traditions then be prepared to prove it during the interview. Best of luck.

I'm good man. Things are going slowly but surely. Will be so grateful if I can get my work permit asap.

My humble advice is that you guys meet at least twice within two years. The rule says at least once but its safer to do twice. This is because of the thorough scrutiny embassies in places like Nigeria and other high fraud countries give to K1 Visa applications.

Hello innken,

Yes, you must have at least met your Fiance/Fiancee once. This will definitely prove that you both have an ongoing relationship. If there is the opportunity, you can even meet more than one time.

And yes, some people have been approved for the K-1 Visa, with just one visit between each other.

Also make sure you take pictures together as well (before you file your petition & send with other docs).

Cheers!

Re: USA Fiancee (K1) Visa Thread by djfrancis: 5:45pm On May 14
It’s like the COs in the embassy have been changed. The questions being asked at the embassy from what I can see here look a lot more technical/harder than what I experienced on my own interview day.

Simple advice guys, ask a lot of questions before your interview date(that’s why LegitBachelor in his wisdom created this group so that those who have gone through the process can advise/assist in any way those who are yet to), prepare well (carry every evidence you have concerning the interview process. There is nothing worse than being asked for evidence and you answer by saying it isn’t in your possession. It will put you off straight), be confident and pray.

Drenimarcus I hope you are ready? Lol. Wish you success.

I was denied.
Had my interview yesterday but it was denied.
I have been married before at d Local Govt Registry but I did not get a Divorce Decree from high court. I only presented a divorce document from the local govt. I didn't know I had to go to the high court to get a divorce decree. Apart from that, all my documents were complete. If I had said I did traditional marriage, I would have scale through. Knowledge is power.
No question is too small to ask. Always ask question for clarity sake.
The CO said my only option is to get married here after getting d necessary document. And then file for a CR1.
My Fiancée is going to talk to a lawyer about it.
I'm really devastated right now.

I want to specifically thank legitbachelor for all your spontaneous responses and everyone here on this platform for all your support advice and feedbacks.

I seem to be d old one. I take a brown. Love you all

Sorry about the denial. Please advise your fiancé to visit you, get married and file for the CR1 asap.
