Work Breakdown Structure

LAST REVISED: JULY 2007

THE FIANCEE VISA
Fiancee Visa secured from Immigration Service
and American Consulate within "Best Available Speed"

SPECIAL NOTE: "Best Available Speed" refers the Current Processing Time of the Service Centers for the I-129F Petition. SEE: Processing Times. "Expedited Processing" of a Petition is allowed by the Service Centers but only based on a showing of a legitimate "proven emergency" situation. For a sample list of emergency reasons, see the California Service Center Expedite Procedures Statement. Processing Time will Vary at the U.S. Consulates from 4 to 12 Weeks. Certain "Complicating Factors" in a Petitioner's or Beneficiary's background can also serve to slow down processing time, such as criminal backgrounds, immigration and visa histories.
