    Hello VJ family
    So we got our approval on november 1st after a year and 7 months of waiting, and now we are waiting for NVC to get our case. Can anyone tell me about their experiance? How long will it take for NVC to get the case? In general, how long do I still have to wait for this whole process to be done?
    Thanks a lot!

    SSA taking too long with corrected SS card from Marriage.

    After a troubling process, (all that k1 visa stuff.) my now Wife and I are just waiting for her corrected social security card to come back in the mail. Problem here is, we applied for correction that on October 27th (We were married on Oct. 24th) and here we are on November 21st and still nothing in the mail.

    We went to the office and applied in person (we had no choice, per our county's rules) both times; to get the card upon arrival and to correct it after marriage. It didn't take too long to get the first card; why is it taking a bit longer for just a Corrected card?

    Also, can we apply for AOS if we already got married and informed the social security office, but not yet received the corrected social security card?

    Hello all.

    I'm really concerned about timing everything right.

    Would someone be kind in telling me if there is a time limit between receiving the post-I130 "packet of forms" and sending it back please?

    Many thanks

    Buying a Car

    Hi everyone,

    I feel like I'm having to re-learn everything so how would I go about purchasing a car in the US? What do I do about insurance? (in the UK I can just use comparison sites for whatever car I choose). What things should I be looking out for with dealerships and added stuff I don't need. I'm looking for something that isn't huge, but could fit a drum kit in successfully. Odd, I know.

    Thank you in advance!

    I have a question and I hope that someone will be able to help me.

    I am French and I am in the CR-1 Application process. I will have to collect the supportive documents (for me those are Birth Certificate, Marriage Certificate, Photocopy of Valid Passport Biographic Data Page, Police Certificate of less than a year from France and Germany because I lived in both countries). I assume that all documents need an official translation. But do you know if all of those documents need an Apostille?

    Thank you veyr much in advance,
