Hello all,


So my Australian wife is pregnant and stressing and I am just stressing to say the least. We submitted our petition for the i-485 and it was accepted in April. My wife has not recieved her green card and her status is "Adjustment of Status". I was unexpectedly and with little notice selected for orders to Naples, Italy and will be departing Nov 9th.


Firstly, I have called USCIS and requested for an expedition of her green card to due overseas pcs orders. Upon request I faxed a cover sheet, letter explaining the situation and my orders with her name on them.  Was this the right thing to do?


Secondly, we are having troubles figuring out what is required of my wife for Italy to give her the Mission visa required to stay in Italy for the entirity of my orders (She is on my orders). I am assuming she is applying for a visa as an Australian citizen? I am still learning the ropes of international travel. It's very different from arriving on an aircraft carrier, any kind of help or advice would really be appreciate. I really don't want to seperate from my wife or miss the birth of my first child.


Thanks in advance for any help or advice.

Hi Everyone!



My wife just joined the navy and is currently in A-school at greatlakes, IL, she's gonna have her swear in next week to become a US citizen after that then she will petition me. I'm currently here in Texas living with my brother and being an Australian/Filipino Citizen I'm only allowed to stay here until October 14 2016, I just have 3 months privilege of stay. now my question is what is our best way or what is the best way to start my petition? which steps do we follow? and is it going to be an issue since I'm only on esta? can I physically stay here through out the petition process?




thank you so much in advance!

arrowI-134 Family Size Question

Since I live with my mom and it will be all of us 3 and she will be filling out an I-134, and I'm a dependent (up until I start work in 2 weeks or so), does she put family size as 3? Also, when I fill out the I-134, do I put the family size as 3 since it's going to be all 3 of us living together? I seen on a post someone said 2, but I might have gotten confused. We'll all be in the same house? Thanks.

arrowIs the petitioner allowed food stamps?

I have a question. Are petitioners allowed to get food stamps and medical assistance? Would it effect the application process if someone
is receiving these benefits? I know that the beneficiary isn't allowed to get any kind of means-tested benefits, but what about the petitioner and co-sponsor? I had this pop into my head and couldn't find anything to answer my question so I apologize if it was already posted. Thanks.

Hi everyone,


Recently I have been talking with my girlfriend and her mother, and we have mutually decided that we are going to go through with the process of trying to obtain a K1 visa for myself, and have been given permission to marry. However, I wanted to find out if it is possible for my girlfriend (US citizen/Petitioner) to submit these forms with parental permission as she is 17, or would we be required to wait until she is 18? 


Thank you, and fingers crossed we are able to submit them! (L)
