Not sure exactly where to post this as it is very complicated.
Had a green card and lived in the US for 29 years.We have lived overseas for a number of years (a family thing) and I have  lost resident status, so now my American citizen wife has to apply for a I-130. But the problem is I don't have a copy of my divorce papers from Ciudad Juarez in 1969. And although I have written to the Ciudad Civil Registry there it's been about 4 1/2 months and still heard nothing. My question is - If I have already submitted that decree with my original application and it was approved and a green card issued, can or will they check my file and give me a pass on obtaining another one?  Incidentally I have ,my passport stamped from El Paso in to Mexico and back the same day which at the very least it proves that I went there for only one day which is a long way from our home in CT.

arrowIR1 and domicile

I submitted our petition i130 in may., we have since received NOA 1 and NOA 2. I have paid the AoS fee and I am getting everything ready for that to be lodged next.

One question is that I intend to reestablish domicile in the USA and I'll show supporting information for that. I would like to know what you have sent and if it was accepted.

I moved to Australia when I was 17 with my Mon so I haven't registered to vote.I also did not have a drivers licence when we left USA.

I have done the following:
> booked my dog with jet pets to fly in January 2015, with the date to be confirmed. I've paid a $400 deposit for this.

> my husband wants to take his car to USA so we have a quote for that.

>I have emailed a real estate agent in USA who said they can assist closer to the date with finding a rental.

I don't want to rent anything yet as we do not want to leave Australia until January and that would be a waste of money. I have never voted as I was a minor when we left. I don't have kids to Enrol in school.we don't have cars or property in the USA as we have always lived in Australia...

Oh, I do have a back account In USA with bank of America which I opened Arlinda year and half ago on our last visit there.

So yes, any insight on your own situation and how this was handled would be appreciated. I'm just worried as to how strict they are and our chances. If we lived closer I'd be happy to fly over and sort some of this there...but the flights are a bit dear.

I heard for some people, if they went overseas from within a year before filing the i751 (because when they come back, at airport custom, they need to leave their fingerprint), they won't need a Biometrics? And in this case, USCIS won't refund you the Biometrics fee?

arrowCR-1 issued but no greencard.

Hi all,

I arrived in the USA on July 8th on a CR-1 visa.

I have received a social security number but no greencard.
It's been around 5 weeks... need I be concerned?
Can anyone indicate how long I should wait before pursuing the issue?

Secondly, my visa 'issue date' is June 18 2014, and it says my visa 'expires on' Nov 20th 2014.
The stamp on the follow page has a stamped 'July 8 2014'... and underneath, handwritten 'Cr-1 - July 7th 2016'.

Can anyone tell me what the deal is with the Nov 20th 2014 date on the visa? Do I need to be concerned?
Or is it simply the last day I could have used my CR-1 visa to enter.

Finally... I set up a bank account the other day but they've just called me back telling me they have to change it to a temporary account that'll expire after six months. Something to do with not have a greencard.... Can anything in my passport/on the visa, give them the information they need for the time being?
