Interview at US Embassy Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Travel + Marriage in USA
This is because we provide the information we want the consular officer to see, 'up front' as
part of the petition submitted originally to USCIS. The consular officer will typically review the package prior to the interview.
When he reads the extensive and persuasive evidence that we have logically laid out for him, he should be convinced of the 'bone fides'
of the relationship before the interview even starts.
This makes asking any remaining questions more a formality than a fact finding, interrogation, and leaves very little for the consular officer to say besides 'Welcome to America'.
It certainly requires extra work and effort, to produce a 100 to 150 page petition, versus a few dozen pages that most un-motivated preparers are willing to submit, but the benefit is PRICELESS as it results in of taking the pressure off of the fiancee to :"PERFORM" at the interview, thus improves chance of SUCCESS.
How To Bring your Brazilian Fiancee to the USA?
Your Brazilian Fiancee needs permission from the US government to allow her to enter the USA. This is called a K1 Fiancee visa.
First we work together to assemble a thick packet of forms, evidences and civil documents. This is required to demonstrate that you are eligible to apply, and that your true agenda is a genuine life together,not immigration fraud.
My signature philosophy is that a petition should be "front loaded" with high quality evidence of a bone fide relationship. My "front loaded" petitions prepare the way so that your Fiancee will have an Easier interview.
The petition package is mailed to the United States Customs and Immigration Service.
USCIS takes about 4 to 5 months to review and approve. When finished, USCIS hands the case over to the US State Department's National Visa Center.
Fiance visa applications are held only briefly at NVC, just long enough for NVC to assign a Rio de Janeiro case number and forward your file via diplomatic pouch to Brazil.
Once her petition has arrived in Brazil, the consulate will contact your fiancee advising when they have scheduled her interview.
There are four US consulate service locations in the Brazil, but only ONe, the Consulate in Rio de Janeiro is reponsible for the processing of all Fiance visas. So even if your gal lives across the street from a consulate, she will still have to make the trip to Rio de Janeiro for processing.
Two weeks before her interview date she undergoes a medical exam at one of the approved clinics in Belo Horizonte, Curitiba, Rio de Janeiro or Sao Paulo.
Finally she attends the visa interview at the consulate in Rio de Janeiro , to demonstrate she is of good moral character and the engagement is Bone fide.
A week later a courier delivers her visa, and then she can join you in the USA.
I make the process sound simple. But its not. It is easy to make rookie mistakes that can derail the entire process.
If you want it done right. Guaranteed.
