  2. Hello , Today I spoke with a lawyer and he told me too many things ! He said that I was lucky to get my permanent residence card, because I had two charges at that time, the officer didn't catch the second charge and gave me the permanet residence card. He advised me to withdraw my case or I can face deportation, because I pleaded guilty for both charges in exchange of a dismissal. I am very concern anf surprised about this situation. I want to apply for citizenship in two years, do you think that I can face deportation for this charges:( domestic violence and the second is disturbing of peace).I reconciled with my wife and she is willing to come with me to the interview, should I withdraw the case now and reapply in two years? Can i get in trouble if i travel? Thanks for your answers

  5. 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.

  6. Good day! As the title suggests, I was wondering if there are any Malaysians here who have experience withdrawing/closing the Employee Provident Fund (EPF) account in Malaysia due to obtaining US citizenship. Particularly would like to know about the process and how long it takes for the money to be transferred into the bank account. Planning to do it later this year when I go back for a visit but unsure how much time I need to get everything done. Really appreciate it if anyone willing to share their experience. TIA.
  7. Hey guys, wondering if there are people here from Upstate NY (Albany) that have filed for their citizenship? It would be nice to get to know each other and go through the process together! Waiting on your replies. Please do post your timeline. And if you have already gone through the process, it would be amazing if you could share your experiences. Thanks!
  8. Hi Everyone, I filled out the n-400 form and I will send the application in couple of days but I have a question regarding the recent address last 5 years. I got my green card through my father h1 visa. It's been already 5 years. But I lived in a different address last 3 years seperated from my family. And as a dependent my father filed tax return on my behalf and we also have obamacare insurance etc. The question is that; should I put the address that I lived on N-400 form or I should put the address where my family lives? Please let me know if you need more details, Best regards,
  9. Hi Guys, My 10 yr GC expired in April 2017. In June, I applied for my citizenship, filling out the N-400. I have done my Biometrics and waiting on interview. I got offered my DREAM job and my start date is on the 28th of this month. However, I do not have proof of ability to work since my GC is expired and I do not have a SS card. I need to get the I-551 stamp on my passport to enable me work and travel while my applications are pending. I already have an infopass appointment for the 21st. However, If I show up there with my notice of action for N-400, will I get the stamp? Or do I have to file for I-90 and take that notice of action to get the stamp? I do not want to file I-90 as that will just be a waste of $500 since I should be getting my citizenship in a few short months. So thats my dilemma. SHould I go to my infopass appointment with my expired GC, notice of action for N-400 and biometrics, and hope to get the stamp? Or should I spend $500 to apply for 1-90 before I go to the infopass appointment? Help will be greatly appreciated!
  10. Can you go ahead and send your n400 while your I-751 is still pending? Would it affect your current case? what to send for your permanent green card? also, if I were to change my wife's last name, do I have to do the form for that as well? Really need some help guys, thanks so much. Our I-751 has been sent since November of last year 2016 and it's still not here, I checked online and California center still processing June 15th of 2016. really frustrating.
  11. Multinational Question. I'm a woman in case this matters. Born in Brazil Brazil is a country that does not allow their citizens to renounce their citizenship. Naturalized American As an adult Will be marrying a German born citizen, and will be moving to Germany. Can I become a naturalized German citizen and keep both my Brazilian and American citizenships?
  12. Heads up: I just ran across a Policy Alert dated 26 July 2017 which states that all ages will now be required to submit biometrics as part of the N-400 application. Here it is below (I changed the formatting a little to emphasize the main points). First, a quick summary: age 75+ will now be required to submit biometrics for citizenship there will be exceptions/accommodations for disabilities/certain medical conditions this applies to citizenship only, and not biometrics for any other USCIS process (Note also: the main USCIS N-400 website, https://www.uscis.gov/n-400, has not yet been updated to reflect this new policy, so who knows how/when it's being implemented...) * * * * * https://www.uscis.gov/policymanual/Updates/20170726-NaturalizationBiometrics.pdf July 26, 2017 Policy Alert SUBJECT: Biometrics Requirements for Naturalization Purpose U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is updating policy guidance in the USCIS Policy Manual to specify that every naturalization applicant must provide biometrics regardless of age, unless the applicant qualifies for a fingerprint waiver due to certain medical conditions. Background Since March 1998, USCIS has waived the fingerprint requirements for naturalization applicants age 75 or older because of difficulty in capturing readable fingerprints from this age group. Electronic processing of applications and improved technology now allows USCIS to capture fingerprints for applicants of all ages and enhances the ability to confirm identity and perform required background checks. USCIS will continue to make special arrangements to accommodate the needs of applicants with disabilities and homebound or hospitalized applicants. This policy does not change USCIS guidance on fingerprint waivers for naturalization applicants with disabilities who are unable to provide fingerprints or are unable to provide legible fingerprints. This policy does not change biometrics requirements associated with other immigration benefit applications. This update affects Volume 12, Part B of the Policy Manual. The guidance contained in the Policy Manual is controlling and supersedes any related prior USCIS guidance. Policy Highlights ď‚·Explains that all applicants for naturalization must be fingerprinted regardless of age, except for those who qualify for a fingerprint waiver due to certain medical conditions. Affirms that USCIS provides accommodations to meet biometrics requirements for certain applicants who are unable to attend an appointment, to include applicants with disabilities or those who are homebound or hospitalized. Citation Volume 12: Citizenship & Naturalization, Part B, Naturalization Examination, Chapter 2, Background and Security Checks [12 USCIS-PM B.2].
  13. Hi, I just recently became a U.S. citizen and I have immigrated my children from overseas about 2 months ago as children of the LPR so they both have green cards through me. My question is - is there a statutory wait period of length of their residency before I can start their citizenship process? Mainly I want to take them to Passport Agency and apply for the passports but can't really find any reliable information regarding length of the residency. If anyone has any sufficient information or experience I would very much appreciate that. Thanks!
  14. A couple of years ago I found out I was born an American citizen because my grandparents became citizens in the 1950s and my mother automatically derived citizenship from them (Something she didn't know). Since she's been a citizen since then, I was born to an American citizen, therefore, I was born one myself as well as my brothers. We just finished the process of having my mother's citizenship recognized, and she now has her passport and certificate of citizenship. I am now in the provess of gathering up the paperwork I need to get my own citizenship recognized. According to the laws in effect when I was born (1978), one of the requirements for me to claim citizenship is that my mother must have lived in the US for at least 10 years, 5 of which must've been after her 14th birthday. She meets that requirement, as she moved to the US before her first birthday and left when she was about 20. My question, which is not at all clear in any of the documents about acquired citizenship I've read, is whether she must have lived those 10 years in the US AFTER she became an American citizen or does the time she spent as a resident count towards those 10 years? I really apologize for the lengthy post.
  15. My mom is a permanent resident and has been for many, many years since she came to the U.S. as a child from Cuba. She recently went for her citizenship test and interview and the officer told her that they would review everything and send her a letter in 3-4 weeks, however, her permanent resident card expires in November. Should she wait until the end of Sept/beginning of Oct. to decide to renew it? Her fear is that she doesn't renew it thinking that they'll give her citizenship but then they end up not giving her citizenship for some reason and she'll be out of status and deportable. Then her other worry is that she renews it now and then they give her citizenship and she's out of the $500+ fee. She's spoken with her lawyer, but he basically said he can't advise her on what to do because it's up to her. Any advise from the pros on VJ?
  16. I came to the United States June 11, 2001 on a tourist Visa. I was ten and I was suppose to just stay for summer vacation. Most of my family was already here and when I was about to head back my dad got the Visa and the decision was made that we will all start our lives here. It's been 15 years and I am part of the Deferred Action. I have a SS# and I have been doing taxes with my father since 2005 or earlier. I am 25 today and about to earn my Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering. There are some companies that are welcoming DACA students but I would like to know if there is any possibility to get on the path to citizenship. I came from Poland and all of those 15 years I feel like I have been in the shadows, not reaching my full potential. Any way that I can get some information or advice?

Hi to everyone I'm new to the forum and not sure if posting in the rite area (but if not please guide me ) i applied for n400 and went to my interview last week and most of it went smoothly I passed both tests, but the officer said that she needed to see the compliant to my divorce and the answer to the complaint. And I didn't have those I did have my certified divorce but she said she needed to see the complaint and answer, so I got a n652 stating that I passed both testes and that a decision couldn't be made so io said that a letter stating what I have to send in will be mailed to me in 1-2 weeks but to start looking for those bc I would have a 30 day deadline . So my question is has anyone here experienced being asked for complaint and answer to complaint ? While in the process of n400 , what I'm worried about is that I got my green card thru marriage and we now are divorced (her decision not mine ) I got my 10 year greencard in 2014 and my divorce was on dec 21 2015 now on the the compliant to the divorce my ex stated that we were separated since 1/1/14 (so divorce would be faster I believe ) I recived my 10 yr green card on or about 10/25/14 so im worried that by sending this in will make things worst so has anyone experienced something similar or what advice do u give me ?? I'm applying under the 5 yr rule so I didn't think these would effect me so I'm I better off not responding to it what would happen if I don't ?? Or what are my options. Thanks in advance and any help will greatly be appreciated srry for such long post
  18. Hi, My bf went to interview and he passed the history test but the officer can't approve it yet and ask more documents which are court final disposition, police arrest record, police clearance record and the prove that he cancel his voting registration. He got arrested about 2years ago for driving wothout license then case was drop and for voting he was in High school (6years ago) and he didn't know back then so he was registered for voting but he didn't vote. Just wonder if anyone who has to submit any documents like these and how was the result ? Is there any chance he will get approve ? And If he not what is he suppose to do next ? Thank you.
  19. Hi, Everyone and this is my story : I applied for citizenship through marriage, me and my wife had an argument after 6 years of marriage and we split for couple months until we collect out thoughts and also have free time from each other. I applied for citizenship and the interviewer asked me multiple questions and I answered all of them wit confident and passed all history test. At the end before closing she asked if I left my wife home when I came here this morning (This was 7 months ago) and I said no she is at her parents house due to small arguments we had. She started asking more questions and than she told me ok, here is the paper and u passed but you will receive the final decision in the mail. I waited for almost 7 months and I check the status of my case and no updates on the website. last month I called USCIS international number and she said she is going to reach out to them and see what is the status of my case. After couple days I received an email and it stated that my case is still under review and they will update me if anything changes. HERE IS THE MYSTERIOUS PART. I called yesterday and the lady told me that my case was denied and they already sent me an EMAIL stating that 4 months ago. (Which I never received ?). I asked did they send me a paper stating that to my home address ??? She got confused and recommended for me to speak to the next person she is going to transfer me too. I spoke to another person and he said my case was denied due to living separated and I said but no one informed me about this and why my case it's showing under review after they already made a decision? and why I just recieved an email yesterday stating that my case it's under review if it was denied 4 months ago ? He said Ah actually it seems that they wrote the email but did not send it to you yet ?????.. I said I don't understand what's going on, did they made a decision or not, did they send me the letter or not ??. He goes to be honest, it seems that they did not make a decision but the denial letter is here on the system and he ended the conversation by recommending for me to go to the local place where I had my interview and speak to someone there because it's not clear what's going on ??? TO MAKE THE LONG STORY SHORT,, here is my questions please : 1- Advise me what to do in this case ? 2- in case they denied my visa, can I apply again but as a single living in the united states for 5 years ? 3- any extra tips will be appreciated
  20. Hey there all, I have some questions in light of a situation that my wife and I are going through. So here is my situation: My wife and I are thinking of moving to Florida to be closer to her parents and my wife and I would also like for me to get citizenship as soon as I can. The only hiccup would be that she had a job interview this morning and I think she has a pretty good chance at getting the job she applied and interviewed for in Florida. So let's say she gets offered the job and takes it and has to move down to Florida. I would have to stay in NYS and sell the house and move/get a job in FL once the house sells. How is this going to affect my citizenship application? It would be an involuntary separation, but it is not like she is being laid off from her job, we would just like to be closer to her family. Would I have to wait for another 2 years to file citizenship.
  21. Hello Everyone, I am new here. I would like to ask something regarding n400 form. The part of PARENTS INFORMATION. My mom is a permanent resident and my dad is a US citizen. I want to apply for citizenship and I have a problem with my dad's A# and date when he became a citizen. He told me that he will not give his A# to me if I wont agree to sell our house. This is a family matter and I wont let him to sell our house since I am the one who's paying the rent and he doesn't treat my mom right. My problem is, is it okay to send my n400 form without my dad's A# and the date when he became a citizen? Please help me with this. I really want to apply for this since last year and this is the only problem I got with n400 form. Thanks so much for your help!
  22. Hi All, I have a Nepalese passport. I came to Hyderabad, India in 2012, completed my postgraduate and have been working in a medical device company since last 3 years. My company is processing for B1 VISA for my training through US consulate in Hyderabad. Is it possible for me to get B1 visa through Hyderabad or should I go to Nepal? I feel going to Nepal more complicated as I have been resident of India for last 5 years, and my company is in Hyderabad. Also, I might have to process it myself in Nepal instead of company's travel agency. What should I do in this typical case. Kindly share your views Thanks in advance, Apurba

  24. Hello, My husband and I have made it to the United States, and in August will begin the process to remove the condition from his resident visa, since we will have been married for 2 years in November. What are some things we should be aware of? Bank accounts, proof, etc... Also, we were thinking of bringing his sister to the US with a student visa to study English and possibly a postgraduate degree in law once she can speak the language well. Is this advised? Should we wait? Should my husband get his citizenship and then request his sister to come? Also, what does citizenship look like? Is it advised? Will they take his original citizenship away from him? Can he have dual citizenship? I apologize for all of the questions, but I am somewhat at a loss. Thank you dhm2
  25. Hello, let me start off my very long story, I married my ex husband on Aug, 2009, and applied for residency in 2011, got approved in 2012 for my 10 year green card, we already had 1 son, and had another in 2013, we separated in 2014 NOT legally, I finally filed for divorce in 2015. We do not have lawyers and I haven't finished the process of my divorce. I now live with another partner and had his child this year 2017. I no longer work, but did when my ex husband left. would any of these events affect my application? should I wait until my divorce is finalized? can anyone show me a link to applying with divorce? TIA!!
