Gotta love the NVC...
Of course, by this time in the process, patience is a struggle. After paying the AOS fee and doing the DS-261...we wait, and wait....2 weeks...3 weeks...they lose your info...you give it to them again....and finally they allow you to pay them the IV fee.
That's all good. I mean, it really isn't very long, but when you're antsy to see your sweetie, and you can't just go, cos you have vacation limitations, so you gotta schedule it for the interview time, etc...etc....you get the drift.
Dang...where's the Cheetohs!
Anywho, now that I have the IV fee paid, and the DS-260 filled out for Yifang and my stepson, the process of them reviewing my paperwork can start. They quote 30 days for review (assuming all is well). Does anyone have a good handle on how long it really takes? the reason I ask, is that, if it truly takes 30 (ish) days, and then I can schedule the interview, then there's a shot at the interview being before the end of the year.
Vacation time comes into play here. if it looks as if we have a shot at an interview before the end of the year, I'll wait until then to see my honey. If not, I'll schedule it earlier (our wedding anniversary is at the end of November).
Anyone have a good idea of processing times these days?
