arrowProcess transfered Vermont - California

I have an I-751 case, I've already done my biometrics and last month my case was transferred from Vermont to California. This week I got a letter saying that I have an appointment on the 24th in the USCIS office  but doesn't specify what I have to do there. I've called USCIS to ask for some information but they didn´t even know I had an appointment scheduled. Do you think that I'm gonna have to do another biometrics or that is should be an interview?

I didn't have to do an interview during the process for the first green card.

We just started out CR1 and our I-130 was suspended for RFE.

We both live in Brazil and our NOA1 and RFE never arrived in the mail. When filling out the Non-delivery of notice it has a subsection entitled `form sub type`which none of the options applies to us. Do i leave it blank?


It also asks for a mailing address with only american states listed. We live in Brazil as I said before so what do I put? Or is that supposed to be the Chicago lockbox address?

I don't even know where to start.
Long story short: Brazilian postal service is very unreliable. We filed for CR-1 in October 2014. Received our NOA1 email but not our hard copy until now. Checked status on uSCIS website and case was suspended for request of additional evidence. We have still not received our instructions in the mail. Says we have to wait untI the 21st of December in order to notify them that our mail never arrived. So while I deal with that, can someone give me an idea of what they might request? We initially sent our health plan, joint income tax statement and our joint credit card statement with the I-130. We don't own property or have kids so that's out of the question. We are still trying to open a joint bank account. Will that be enough? What else can I start prepping by the time the mail comes?

arrowDelaying a case at the Embassy stage in Brazil?

Hello VJ,


My fiancé and I are getting ready to submit our application for the K1 visa. She is nearing the end of medical school in Brazil, and will be graduating in August 2015. Because of this, she can’t leave Brazil until at least when she has her degree. We would also like for her to be able to work for at least a few months after graduating, to gain experience, build her resume, and gather some money. Our plan is to file now, and let the processing time for the visa play out as she finishes school.


We are also concerned about Obama’s executive actions and what those may do to upcoming USCIS processing times, which is why we would like to file immediately. Furthermore, I live in Maryland, so I can expect our case to be processed by Texas Service Center instead of California.


If it takes us about 6 months to get an NOA2, then everything will be nicely on schedule. However, if everything goes extremely fast, and I get an NOA2 in a few months, what can we do to slow down the process later once our case has been transferred to the Rio embassy?


My understanding is that the Rio embassy schedules the interviews for you. How long do they give you to compile documents (such as a police certificate from a third country) before they schedule that interview? If we need the interview to be delayed for her to finish school, will the embassy be cooperative with that?

If anyone could explain a full timeline of what happens once a case is transferred to the embassy in Rio, with how long each step is able to take, I would very much appreciate it. It’s hard to find that sort of information, because virtually everyone is trying to get their visas as quickly as possible.


Thank you!
