Hi, fellow Europeans,

 

For the interview to get my K1 visa they're going to ask me (still haven't received the letter, but it'll be soon) to provide police certificates of every country I've lived in for more than 6 months. Those countries are Spain, Germany, Luxembourg and Canada.

 

I went to get the Spanish one yesterday and I asked about the other European ones. They assured me that, being a Spanish national, my certificate covers any other European countries. So, if I had ever committed a crime in Europe, it would show in this certificate they gave me. I asked if that could be specifically written on the document, but they said no.

 

Will they understand this at the consulate? Do they know the law? Will they just not belive me? Getting those country-specific certificates will be such a pain... I don't even know if I can get them by mail. What if I have to go there!

 

I've already paid $200 and got fingerprinted twice to get the ones from Canada (where I lived for only 8 months). Aghh... Tip: never live abroad.

 

Anyone knows more about this or has experience with an "European" police certificate?

 

Thanks

arrowObtaining Green Card from Uncle by means of mother obtaining one first and subsequently sponsoring me

Hi All,
 
Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
 
I am looking to get some form of permanent residence status in the United States to eventually move over there and work.
 
My uncle currently has a US citizenship, an american wife and children and has lived in the US for over 10 years. My mother who is british currently lives in Spain and has no current residency status in the US.
 
Would it be possible to for my uncle to sponsor my mother (his sister), and then once that has been approved, subsequently sponsor myself as my mothers son?
 
I am currently over 21, as I understand this makes a difference.
 
Would this be possible without my mother moving/living in the US at any point?
 
I understand this approach will likely take several years.
 
Thank you in advance for any advice.

arrowI-130 Approval Notice

I personally submitted my I-130 packet to the Bangkok Embassy Oct 9th.

Today, I dropped by my post office to check my mail and I was surprised to see a letter from USCIS and from the Bangkok American Embassy.

The Approval Notice letter from USCIS was dated 10/14, a mere 5 days after my submission. They told me it would probably take 5 weeks so I figured at least 8 weeks.

All I can say is WOW ! ! !

 

I wish similar success to you all.

 

On a technical note, I am keeping track of my timeline.

Is USCIS letter I received considered a NOA1 "Notice of Action"?

I click on help and it showed an official looking form rather than a formless letter I received.

The other letter from the American Embassy included a case number.
