Oh My GOSH! I love this thread! 

So Fiance and I are in the “collecting evidence” stage.  I’ve got the I-129F and G-325? the biography one filled out, I’ve got our statements of intent, I’ve got an attachment for dreaded question 18 that says how we met and how we’ve been together for 4 years, I have old airline tickets, pictures, our e-ring receipt, our wedding venue contract… I am probably going way overboard, but I figured the more I have the better!  Now I just need to save my next paycheck for the outrageous fee!

Any advice???

I literally just dropped off my hubby’s I-30 with our G-325A at the post office and crossing my fingers.

yes, she was here at first on a school visa, and then she got her work visa about three years ago.  i know she went back to her birth country this summer to work on more stuff and am assuming she has another year or so (or whatever the customary extension of the visa is).. i’m not sure how it works, but she went to her embassy to obtain whatever she needed to for her visa. i think she has to go to her birth country for a certain amount of time before her visa is renewed and that is what she did earlier this year.

@recessionistabride – OMG, thanks for that website recommendation. It is great! I freaking out constantly about the process and it is nice to maybe have a forum to vent to so I don’t keep bugging the hubby!

Well, I’m not emigrating to the US, going the other direction, but I sure do share the worries, irritation and other feelings that go along with it. Just thinking about the evidence collecting has me breaking out in hives. I’m scrambling to gather travel receipts, cards, letters, emails, photos, whatever. I hate being photographed so we don’t have a lot of couples photos, I wish I’d realized I needed them at the start.
