Hello guys,

I have a question regarding to what name my wife(petitioner) should put on both forms I-130 & G-325A:


fictional name before married: Jennifer Paltrow Gomes
name after married: Jennifer Paltrow Gomes Silva

** She didn't change her name in her passport yet, we only have married certificate as proof for the new name!



Family name                First name              Middle name

Gomes                         Jennifer               Paltrow


Other names used(including maiden name)

Jennifer Paltrow Gomes Silva




Should i just do as the I-130 is?

- I just really don't know if as family name we should put Silva or Gomes.


Thanks guys!

arrowMissing I-94 records for AOS (Form I-485)

Hello all,
I'm about to send my AOS application, and the instructions for form I-485 say to include your form I-94 arrival/departure document.  I understand that these are not issued on paper anymore, so I went online to check my record (  The most recent record is in 2012, but I have been to the US 3 additional times (including my most recent entry on the K-1 visa), and none of these are on the electronic record!  I was inspected by an immigration officer just as everyone else coming off the plane is, and I have stamps in my passport proving that I was here and was inspected each time, but I don't understand why 3 arrivals to the US would not be on this electronic record.
Has anyone else experienced this?  What did you do?

Hello guys,

I am very happy that November is coming and soon I will be able to start the IR-1 process. 



That is the story: I met my baby Becca online by June last year, she lived in Vegas, by December after we were talking through Skype everyday I decided that I should go there to meet her in person, and so I did. 


It was awesome we had a great time together, for about two weeks, but I had to come back to Brazil. Two days after arriving here, I decided to spend the last week of my vacations with her again, so I bought the tickets, went back to Vegas, and spent New Year’s Eve with her and her family. In the meantime, I gave her a promise ring and asked her if she wanted to try this rough long-distance relationship, and she said yes! Everything went great thought all these months, she came to Brazil in June/14 we got married and she is living with me now. At first, she did want to stay over here and live in Rio de Janeiro, but she really did not get used to it and we decided to go back to Vegas.



Of course, the story above is missing a lot of things that happened, it was a great year for both of us, and we went through a lot, but always supporting each other!




I have a few questions on the form I130 when it comes to fill up the empty spaces with N/A or NONE and I wonder if you guys can help me out.

Form I-130

Check on the image bellow at the section C:
7) None or N/A

9) It asks if any, so should I just leave in blank?

10) None or N/A

11 and 12) If i putted None on 11 I need to put again on 12 or leave in blank?

14) I can only put "NA" not "N/A" any problem with that? Or should I put none?

Section B:

10, 11 and 12) They are ok like that?

Section B:
14) None or N/A?


Section C:
20) None or N/A?


[attachment=19063:Second _ I-130.PNG]




Section C:

21) She still lives with me, should I print out and put in black ink to present day?


Section D:

1) None or N/A?


2) Should I always sign with black ink?

Guys thank you all in advance, I know it is a lot, but I am really afraid to get a RFE!

arrowTexas Service Center - K1 Processing Time

Hi guys,


I am a K1 Visa Beneficiary and got the NOA1 by the middle of June. I have seen people that applied after me and already got their approval (According to VJ Timelines) in the same Service Center (Texas). I am really glad for them, however I was just wondering if anyone knows how it works! I don't understand how people that apply after others get their approval before! I didn't get any RFE and when I check our case online all I see is the ''Initial Review''status. It's been 4 months and I have no idea if everything went well!! I don't know if due to the fact that my fiancé is in the Navy (13 years), the background checks are more strict and it might take a little longer!
