  3. 2017 Filers

    Hello I received my NOA1 September 7, 2017 and was wondering how was the process for other 2017 filers before September. I would like to know what to expect because most of the threads are a bit old. My fiancé is in Gambia and I’m in America.
  4. Hey everyone. How is everyone's wait time going? Filed I130: 1/17/2017 NOA1: 1/26/2017 I know we haven't waited long but this is killing me. Anyone having any good luck with TSC?
  5. Hi Guys! So I'm new to this whole process and this is my first time posting here. I searched for a little while to find a topic for October filers but I couldn't find one so I started one but if there's already one, could someone please direct me to that thread? I'm looking forward to the help and support from others and I hope to be able to help others as well.
  6. Hey everyone going for an interview in Havana, Cuba in 2017! I decided to start a new forum for those folks whose interview is in Havana, Cuba, who want help on what to do after the NOA2 is approved. There seems to be a hold up of NOA2s pending to be approved (I think USCIS is working Nov 2016 cases right now - as I write this) and there are a few who recently submitted I-129fs who will soon (*I hope*) be on this track. Hope this will help anyone getting ready for the interview process in Cuba. This forum is to: 1. Share links and docs that help filers complete the necessary paperwork for the interview. 2. Share information from various sources that help filers complete forms and gather additional evidence for the interview. 3. Ask questions about the kind of information we need to gather evidence for the interview, especially questions pertaining to the interview process in Cuba. Hope that helps clarify the objective for this forum. Let's get ready! Forena99
  7. Is anyone here a greencard holder and is filing for spouse and minor child in the year 2017. How far along are they with interviews? My next question is does anyone know how long it is taking to get an approval notice in this category?
  8. Hi guys I want to start this topic because I will send my form on november 1, and I'm very excited
  9. I am starting a simple timeline thread for N-400 filers whose field office is Los Angeles, Santa Ana or San Diego. I complied three timelines from May 2016 - March 2017 VJ filers. I would appreciate if you can add or update your case status so that everyone can get an idea about field office progress in southern California. These timelines may be not reflect the current status because some of VJers may have given up, was denied or didn't update their status.

  10. Hi everyone.. we sent our package in late July so I am expecting our NOA1 sometime in Aug...
  11. Has anyone received any approval for form I-130 filed in March?
  12. I didn't see one so I figured I'd start one. I'm new to this place. Here's my story. Been in the US since I was 13 (2004). Served in the Army for six years after high school. Was given my citizenship in the Army in 2011. Sent out i130 for my mom on the 9th of June 2017 Received Acceptance email on the 19th of June 2017. Case routed to Potomac. Anyone know anything about these guys? I wrote a very elaborate cover letter. My mom is severely ill with diabetes and needs treatment, and also, my sister just had a baby in May of this year and we need my mom here. Additionally, I explained my anxiety and depression and how it's affected me since I've been separated from my mother. It affects my ability to focus on anything and I'm so sad and anxious all the time and I suffer from dis-associative disorder. I lost a new job today (literally 4 hours ago) because of this. I'm disassociated because I just want to be home with my mom and brother. My mind isn't here anymore and I don't want to be here. I just want my mom. I'm 26, have never dated, never really done anything...Just waiting for my mother, and waiting. My father screwed things up a lot and has strung us along and hasn't even done anything.
  13. Does anyone have a waiver currently processing at the Nebraska Service Center? #2017
  14. Does anyone want to share their overall AOS experience at the filed office in honolulu, hawaii and/or experiences in general? -How long did it take you to get an interview date? -When did you guys recieve your ead's? -Any interview experiences? -PD and visa type -SSN, driver's license, health insurance, military (if applicable) process -etc. TIA!
  15. Hi there, Have any Jan filers got i130 approvals yet? We got a notice saying they receivrd our petition back in Jan 12 2017 and still haven't heard anything back. We know Nebraska's been behind but this is really behind. Anyone know any other news ?
  16. Hello Everybody, maybe anybody know how long can take an administrative process for visa F1 in Colombia ?, in October 20 I start my clases , but my current state is "administrative processing". Help Please thanks.
  17. Via USCIS. Read the original here. No photos yet of how the new GC's or EAD cards will look. I wonder if this means the cost will go up..
  18. Hi everyone who is also filing for AOS this August, 2017. Hopefully we can keep our progress updated here and possibly contribute and help each other in this long journey. This is my timeline so far: • 08.03.2017: I-130, I-485, EAD filed to the Chicago Lockbox • 08.04.2017: package received and signed by JC (overnight, using express mail) • 08.09.2017: 'acceptance' and receipt confirmation on text message and email (got 2 case numbers, not 3 because not applying for AP) and routed to the National Benefits Center • 08.10.2017: checks cashed (do they always do this immediately?) And that's it so far. I am adjusting from an overstayed B-2 visa and got married in July 2016. I will update here as soon as I get any notification and keep and updated timeline. Let's hope that everything goes smooth and fast for everyone!
  19. Hey everyone, mi PD is may 2 2017 Married with Us Citizen, whats yours? im waiting for my approbation , u see about april files aprrobed? what PD?
  20. The Nebraska Service Center received the requested evidence on October 11, 2017. I just want to know an estimate of how long it's taking them to make a decision on my case. I want to be patient it's just it will be a year soon since I started the whole thing and I really want to be able to take my husband back home. Anyone else waiting or have received a response? Please any info on time it will take them would really help.
  21. Hello, See below my J1 waiver based on hardship application timeline. The length was almost exactly a year. Background of our case: 2009 :J-1 visa obtained with US funds for a 2 month program 2010: Came to the US for grad school with a F-1 visa 2014 - 2017: Used OPT and OPT STEM extension to work 2016: South American and American Citizen marry Late 2016: With the help of a team of experienced lawyers in J1 waivers we applied to the hardship waiver based on: medical and psychological hardship, career disruption, economic disruption, and severe political and social conditions in the home country Couple has no kids I know how hard and painful this process is. But believe it or not one day it will be over! I can't believe I no longer have to check the j1waiver website everyday. I promise myself that once our case was finalized and I would share our case with other J1 waiver fellows. Wish you the best, stay positive, stay busy!

  22. Hello people. What does it mean? Field Office Processing Dates for Potomac Service Center as of: August 31, 2017? Does this mean they are up to August? thankyou for any input or clarification?!
  23. Petition sent October 5 Text notification acceptance notice 10/13/17
  24. My husband and I are submitting his aos packet this week. Hiso I 94 expires Oct 8th so we are just putting the finishing touches on it now. We are including the application for advance parole to travel because he has a 3 year old daughter, my step daughter, in his home country he would like to visit either for the holidays or soon after. I have only really seen people applying for the ap for emergencies, is this a good enough reason for them to approve his request? Also I don't know if my work schedule would allow me to take the trip with him although I would like to depending on the timing. I'm submitting a cover letter with the request, should I say I'll be traveling with him or leave that out?
  25. Hi guys. Does anybody know how long it takes to get the EAD card after the biometrics? My husband and I are moving out on Oct 1st and I will call USCIS to update my address on that very same day. Do you think it will be enough time for them to send my EAD to my new address? I'm worried they won't update it in their system on time and they will send it to the previous address and I won't receive it and they will refuse to re send it to my new address. Anyone knows what's the options in case they send it and I don't receive it? Thanks
