Just called them again today to verify that they do indeed have my new address and they confirmed it. Now I'll just have to stay on top of them and check the website regularly.  :wallbash:

Hammer, doncha just feel like you're their secretary at times ??  Wait until AOS, AP etc. go in as a bundle - the potential for mistakes increases exponentially. Eventually all of it will come together.
 
My wife had to wait almost 18 months for a Social Security number because, as SSA put it, "Some clerk in Texas screwed up".....
 
Is your lady well-prepared for (and confident about) the impending interview?

Well, I plan on being at the interview with her so we plan on "studying up" before hand.  ;D

Yeah, I have a feeling that I will be having to call them again in the future.  :arguing:

I was being facetious with "you should have never moved" line but, you soon come to find that is actually, how they'll treat you and their mindset. It can get so frustrating.

Apparently, they sent the letter to my old address even though I verified with them that they did indeed have my new address some time ago. It figures that the morons in the USCIS managed to screw this up.
 

USCIS screwed up on my wife's documents too. On the I-129F I stated she was living in Libya and answered the questioned "Where would your financee like to take the interview?". I answered Ukraine, they delivered to Libya. Lost time.
 
Although USCIS does a lot of things twice, it keeps them busy and it's job security.
 
Well, I plan on being at the interview with her so we plan on "studying up" before hand.  ;D

You will sit in a waiting room for awhile. An employee will study your documents and probably read your phone records, airline tickets, email correspondence between you and your fiancee to verify your relationship. Your fiancee will be called up to a window. Walk with her to show you're there in support but you will be told to sit back down and your fiancee will do the interview alone. She can do it in English or native language.
There are people that will pass info about you and your family. Do not share info about yourself or share photos as they can search for you on the internet and distribute what they found since they are allowed to participate here.

I just got a surprise today!!!!!!!  :clapping:  This week I had to deal with the USCIS sending my NOA2 to my old address. I figured it would be another 2 weeks till I got the letter re-sent to me. Well, today my girl told me on Skype that she just recieved a letter in the mail telling her that her K1 packet was in Kiev and that she needed to get her documents ready and call for her interview. WTF???? Here I was expecting to have a delay but lo and behold, they had sent the K1 docs quite a while back!!!! Man, am I shocked to all hell!!!!!!!  :o

As I understand it; you are getting certain packets in USA and your gal is getting certain packets in Ukraine.

Her getting a packet in Ukraine sooner than expected doesn't help with your USA situation of not getting a packet yet . . . does it?

The only thing I was waiting for was the NOA2 (letter of petition approval) which apparently they sent but to the wrong address. They are re-sending it to my new address. At the same time they sent the original NOA2 to me, they must have just forwarded the approved petition to NVC and then from there to the embassy in Kiev because Lena got her packet 3 letter today in her mail box. So everything seems to be moving along regardless of the address SNAFU on my end. I still plan on keeping tabs on things. You just never know with the govt..... :wallbash:

she needed to get her documents ready and call for her interview.


YOU have to pay for that call and will be alloted a certain amount of minutes to talk. You, instead of your fiancee, can call and schedule a date. You can also ask questions to help you prepare.

Yes, Billy I understand this. Lena and I have agreed for me to do this but she wants me to wait till she gets her Passport. She had to re-new it because it was expiring in less than 6 months. She want to be sure she has it in hand before making the appointment which I will call and make after we agree she is ready.  :)

Well, I just got another letter but it seems what I got re-sent was a letter from the NVC that I never got. I thought they were re-sending me the NOA2. Will I be needing this NOA2 later on down the road or can I just move on and work on the interview since this letter does say that my application was approved?

IIRC, there isn't anything for you to do. They should be sending her notification of the interview and she needs to be there

You should be able to look up your case online. Have you done that?

She's already gotten the letter from the embassy. We're just waiting for her to get her renewed passport to arrive before setting the interview appointment. I just went online to USCIS and found out I can submit a form I-824 to have them re-send me the approval so no worries there.  :clapping:

Her passport expires in the next 6 months so she had to renew it. It takes about a month. Its only been 2 weeks so have to wait another 2 weeks. I don't want to make an appointment without having it in hand knowing how Ukraine works (or doesn't) LOL

Well, I am officially starting the K1 docs for my Olenka. First thing I realized is that I could not find my birth certificate. Have no clue where it is. My mom has the original but since it has a raised seal it is not accepted by the government so I had to order copies from my birth state's office of vital statistics. Hoping to get these in the mail next week. Let the fun begin!!!!!!!  :clapping:

Pray tell. So what happened to YOUR Olenka?!?

Your last post in bold said you only needed to make the call for her interview? Fast forward to today, that's a different gal you're holding.

What happened? Spygate? Nefarious background check result, or you just found a bigger, better deal than your Olenka? (LMAO)

You got all her family members so excited, too.

The MOB, man...like they say in the NBA - IT's FANTASTIC!

You need to change the category of the J1 visa research-->clinical. The information is available in the DOS website. You can change to a clinical J1 or apply for new J1 if you complete the research program before starting the residency. You can not apply to an H1B if you do not do the 2 yeas.
