Getting ready to start K1 process, away from home a lot

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm an over the road truck driver, which means I'm never home. Under normal circumstances, I see the house 1 day every 4 or 5 months. Looking at all these timelines, I see lots of hardcopy dates. Will I have to have hardcopies in my possession from USCIS while going through the process? Or can I go by what I get in emails?

There are problems with the advice given above. For instance, what if you receive an RFE? Only the hard copy letter explains what the RFE is for, and you need to return the RFE letter in your response. Also, you will need the hard copy approval notice after you marry and are filing for AOS.

Do you have a family member or trusted friend that can get your mail for you? Can you use their address to have it sent directly to someone else so they can check your mailings and help you respond to an RFE, if you happen to get one?

I was worried about that. It takes a week or two between the time I want to get home and the time the company can get me by the house. I guess I'll have to deal with that when the time comes.
