Yep, I ordered them in December (second set for me, first set for her) so hope to have them back by April.

I have a 19 yr old step daughter and 21 yr old step son too but after some discussion with the customer service people and paperwork (stat dec maybe?, not sure what hubby had to do) they haven't been brought up again. Maybe over 18s are not considered dependants? We had included them on original forms as dependants. I'm not sure why we don't have to get police/FBI check and medical for them but I'm grateful we don't!

No, they wouldn't be dependents if they're over 18 unless they're still in school full time, financially dependent on you, etc. If they're living on their own and no longer in school, they wouldn't be. It's a shame, though, because if they WERE dependent they would be getting their own visas along with you.

Hi everyone,

I've been reading about the FBI checks taking so long and I'm wondering if I should get my fiancÚ to apply for it now. I understand that most people wait till their CO asks for them to be done but do you think given the current length of time they are taking to process these checks that we do it sooner rather than later?

Thank you!

Not everyone waits, many submit everything required with initial application.

Yeah, I actually am changing my opinion on this in regards to the US specifically. With the FBI checks taking as long as they are, I wouldn't suggest waiting more than about 3 months post application to get them done (and preferably sooner... and make sure you get multiple sets of prints). Unfortunately this means there's an outside chance you might have to get them done again (if the 12 to 15-month possible processing time eventually actually happens) but I think it's worth it so you don't find yourself waiting for it in order to get your grant.

Everyone seems to be hearing from their CO after 5-7 months so I would have to agree with Collegegirl and say get them maybe 2 or 3 months after applying

Heard from our CO on 9th of January. They have recommended we apply for the BC100 if we have enough evidence. Hopefully see an approval this or next month!

Next time I will see my partner will be 11th of March.

Thank you all so much for your replies. I know we definitely don't want the FBI checks to be what holds our application up and have to wait even longer until we are together permanently, providing the visa is successful mind you!

Heats, did you call the main number for the FBI based in DC? I'm planning to call tomorrow to inquire about timeline for my new fingerprints (got them done first thing Friday morning via Livescan after a stressed and sleepless night Thursday!) - these new ones better work!

I know the summary request department is in West Virginia, but I can only find the number for the main office in DC. Thanks!
