Default Biometrics for FLR (M) Visa

Hello again everyone!
I am trying to complete the FLR (M) visa now and one of the questions asks if I have had my fingerprints taken as part of a previous UK immigration application made in the UK or abroad. Since I got them taken for my fiance visa, I am going to write that I have. It then asks me the name in which I made the application, the date of application, the place at which the application was made, and the british diplomatic post if the application was made abroad. I know the name and address of the place at which the biometrics were taken, but I do not remember the exact date - sometime in early October, possibly late September. I also do not know what to write for the british diplomatic post, because I got my biometrics taken at a U.S. Citizens and Immigration Services building, not a British embassy.
Thank you very much in advance!

Do you still have your email with the date of your biometric appointment? That might help.

Thank you for your reply! I was actually just able to find my appointment date a couple of seconds ago, by reading old skype conversations. I am still stuck on this british diplomatic post thing though. Any ideas?

Does it say on your email the name of the office or its address? I'm actually having the same appointment tomorrow and I wrote the name of the British Embassy Mexico City, since that's where I did the biometrics.

It asks the place, and then it also asks the British diplomatic post, so I thought I would write down the address and name of the office in Miami where I did the biometrics for the place, but I am stuck on what to write down for the British diplomatic post. As I understand it, the British diplomatic post means British embassy, but I did not get my biometrics at a British embassy. Good luck with your appointment tomorrow!

Well, for the place I just wrote Mexico City, and for the British diplomatic post I wrote British Embassy Mexico City. The application seems really vague and not as helpful as the online one for the fiancée visa since my husband and I had so many questions. I'm really nervous about tomorrow since you never know what to expect and I wish you good luck to you too! I think I read your other thread about going away for a honeymoon outside the UK, but as I understand it, if you're already married and decide to travel outside the UK, your fiancée visa won't be valid anymore since you're already married, so is recommended to wait after your FLR (M) is successful, wait for your biometric residence permit and then do honeymoon arrangements.

Okay, thank you so much!!! I'll be thinking of you tomorrow and wishing you luck!

But isn't it asking about the place were the biometrics were taken instead of where we send the documents with the application?
