arrowMother has approved tourist visa, question about POE.

Hi everyone! My mom has an approved 10 year tourist visa and she booked a flight to come visit me and my husband in January. I'm a little nervous about it so I was wondering if anyone could tell me about their experience with their parents visiting.
She can't speak English, only Spanish, and she's getting here through JFK. She's a high-school principal for a public school and she'll only be coming for 10 days. She has more than enough money to cover the trip. She'll be staying at our apartment and might go to Miami to visit one of her brothers.
The rest of my family all live in Argentina, including my dad and my brother, but she's divorced.
Any tips for what she should say at POE? She's coming to visit me and also for tourism because she's never been to NY. She's been to Miami around 1993 but doesn't travel much.
Any tips for her arrival? I'm a very anxious person so I'm worried and I'd feel terrible if she had a bad experience coming to visit. I came under a K1 and I'm going through AOS right now.

arrowGoing for K-1 Visa

My boyfriend and I (I'm the citizen, both of us are living in Argentina - home country -) have decided to go for the K-1 Visa. We want to move the US, get married and live there permanently. 


I have some concerns regarding, in the first place, the fee. I've contacted the US Embassy and they said we have to pay the fee to USCIS (we can't pay it at the Embassy) so I'm assuming it has to be a check from a US bank account. The problem is I don't have anything - much less a bank account - in the US. Would it be a okay if a friend of mine (LPR and living in Florida) does the check for us?


The other issue is the affidavit of support. I know this only comes up in the last stage of the process - the interview - but I'm worried because the last time I lived in the US I was 12 and therefore never worked (never worked here in Argentina either because I've been going to college, so I didn't file taxes), and don't have any assets either. If I was to move back to the US in the middle of the K-1 process (a few months before the interview), would proving I am currently living there and have a job be enough? Because it would only be a job I've had for 2 or 3 months...

arrowK-1 or Tourist visa?

I'm a US Citizen and have been living in Argentina (my home country) for the past 9 years. I've been in a relationship for the last 2 years. A couple of weeks ago my family (also citizens) and I decided to move back to the US. My father will be leaving next weekend; the rest of us, in a couple of months. My boyfriend is NOT a US Citizen and has never been abroad.


At first we considered the possibility of him entering the US on a tourist visa a couple of months before me and after my arrival waiting another month or so and then getting married and filing for his adjustment of status. Now I'm having second thoughts because we will have to 'pretend' that we met in the US and decided to get married there so that he wouldn't be under visa fraud, and I'm scared things will go wrong because he entered on a tourist visa, overstayed it and got married about 3 months later.


On the other hand, we considered filing for a K-1 visa but first, we don't know if we can file it if we are both living abroad (I already mailed the US Embassy regarding this, I'm waiting for their answer), specially because of the affidavit of support situation since we don't have anything in the US. My father will be moving back there this weekend but is going to stay at a friend's house until he finds a job so he doesn't actually have anything to be my cosponsor (plus my mom was a resident but her green card expired so he's filing for a inmigrant visa for her once he gets there so he'll be her sponsor and I don't know if he can also be mine).


Basically I don't know which decision would be best. We don't want to spend that much time apart but I'm also scared if he enters on a tourist visa and something goes wrong there's not gonna be a way for him to re-enter the US later.

Hi all,


K-1 visa approved,
I'm still in Argentina, and I'll be flying to the US mid December and getting married by late December.

My GF went this morning to get the marriage license and when asked my residence she informed my address in Argentina.


I mean...she did the right thing because I'm currently here... but the address will not be the same in the AOS forms.


Do you think it's a big deal?

arrowTypo in a thank you letter

Hi everyone,
I just moved here in August and recently got my ead approved so I started applying to jobs. I had my first job interview today for a receptionist position and I think everything went well,they asked about my availability for a second interview and said they'd get back to me with the exact time. When I got back home I was drafting a thank you letter for the interviewer wondering if I should send it and accidentally pressed tab on gmail and sent it. After that I noticed it had a small typo ("it was a pleasure to be have the chance to..."), basically forgot to delete a word in a sentence I changed.
I'm so nervous now wondering if that could make them not go ahead with the second interview.
I don't know why, looking for a job here really stresses me out, I feel very awkward and out of place and second guessing everything I do and my husband really wants me to find a job soon, so it doesn't help.
Any opinions on how bad it is?
