arrowConfused about Part 5 - New Form I-751 (Split)

Hello All:

 

I am an US citizen, and am applying I-751 for my immigrant wife. I am confused about part 5 of the newest version of I-751 (expires 11/30/2017)

 

Please advise me of the following:

 

1) I am not sure whether I have to list the children of my wife, even though they do not live in the US and do not want to come to the US?

 

2) If I have to, do I still submit their birth certificate?

 

Thank you very much.

arrowAOS Interview - told to go to civil surgeon

Hi fellow VJers.

 

Well, I thought today was the day that we would FINALLY get the green card approved. We had our interview in San Francisco, and I was super prepared. Turns out, we brought everything and the officer said he had no concerns about our marriage, but he had noticed that on my completed vaccination records (done by Knightsbridge in London, UK), the box that said that all the vaccinations were completed was not checked. Even though beside every vaccination it said that I had them, because the final box at the bottom confirming that wasn't checked, our green card will be delayed and we need to go see a civil surgeon to transcribe the vaccinations over and sign off on them. One box. ONE FREAKING BOX.

 

So because of that, we need to spend MORE money and waste MORE time doing this. So bummed.

 

To confirm, I emailed Knightsbridge back in October 2015 after I noticed the box wasn't checked, and they said that the embassy told them not to check it because it wasn't for an immigrant visa. So I'm not sure if the embassy or USCIS is supposed to make sure all the vaccinations are completed and then check the box or what....

 

Either way, I'm not sure why they waited until the interview to tell us, when they could've just sent us an RFE months ago.

 

Thought fellow UK K-1 visa holders would want to know.

arrowAre we allowed to reenter USA without physical greencard (with CR-1 on passport)?

My physical greencard is being processed. I have entered the USA last month on a cr-1 visa and just paid the elis fee couple of days ago. After speaking with the USCIS rep on the phone, I found out it can take up to 120 days before I have my physical green card in hand., and it's "not unusual" for the process to actually take 120 days. We are planning to travel to Mexico for a week so I called Mexican consulate in my area and explained the situation to them. They advised applying for a mexican tourism visa, which we did and received it today. Now the phone lady from USCIS did assure us that we are free to travel outside of the US as the cr-1 visa does indeed act as a temporary green card for upto 1 year while the green card is being produced. 

 

Before I leave the United States for a planned 1 week trip to Mexico, I want to make sure, I will be allowed to reenter the USA with my cr-1 visa, the initial entry date on which will have expired by then but the "Admitted" stamp from custom officer and hand written "CR-1" along with an A#, also hand written. While I am sure the USCIS lady didn't just make it up, I'd love to see this in writing on USCIS website somewhere or hear from any of you who might have had some experience with this.

 

Thanks in advance for your help.
