arrowReceived Transfer Notice on I-485, Need Clarification

I received a notice of action stating the following:


"This is to advise you that in oder to speed up processing we have transferred the above case to the following USCIS office for processing: 


USCIS-NBC, PO BOX 648005, Lee's Summit, MO 64064


That office will notify you of the decision made on the application or petition"


Previously, my case was being processed at TSC. Since my receipt date (11/26/2013), I have had a biometrics appointment and have received the EAD. Can anyone shed some light on what might be going on with my case currently at the NBC? Will they transfer to my local office soon? Or will they issue a decision themselves? That's another somewhat confusing detail, since my case status online says that it has been "transferred to a local office."

I want to bring my Girl Friend to the USA for a visit. She is Japanese, but her citizenship is Brazilian.  She lives in Japan, and has live there for about 30 years.


If we start this process, how long does it typically take? 


What percentages of applications are granted?


Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi fellows!

I was hoping someone could help me. I am AOSing through marriage to a US citizen. Last week we've got an email saying they sent us a RFE and today I finally got it in the mail, after obsessing for days about what it could be! It is a pink letter and, as I suspected, it has something to do with the I-864.


"Submit a complete federal income tax return submitted to the IRS from the petitioner/sponsor on form I-864, Affidavit of Support, for the most recent tax yerar."

And then, handwritten: "W2 alone are not acceptable or required."


Copies of his W2s, that together show my husband earned $19487 in 2013. It is a little bit under the new 125% poverty line for this year, so we've also sent a statement from our checkings + savings showing around $25000, which is more than 3 times the difference.


- We hadn't sent the complete return because my husband hadn't filed his taxes at the time we sent the package. He filed his taxes last week. Should we just go to the HR block site and print them and that's all they want?
- They are not saying his income is not enough, right? He just got promoted to a full time job in the same company and his new income is $40000 a year. Should I also send a letter explaining that plus a letter from his job, even though they didn't ask for it? Also, we now have benefits! Yay! Can I send that also?

I thank you guys in advance. I know this is the most common RFE people get and that I could have found the answer for my questions on other peoples posts! but I really wanna nail this!

arrowNo Health Insurance for Mother in Law

Hello, my wife is an only child, and her mother is not married, and we were able to get her mother a tourist visa.  My mother in law is 80 years old. We were planning on letting her stay with us for 6 months. She has been here for approximately 1 1/2 months. Just yesterday we discovered that she had ran out of her blood pressure pills 3 days ago. My wife thought she had a good supply of blood pressure pills, but found out they are only sleeping pills.  My wife had attempted to get health insurance just before her mom traveled, but was unsuccessful.  She has been taking long naps, I'm thinking approximately sleeping 15 hours a day, and I'm concerned of possible respiratory problems. My wife assures me that she has been sleeping like that for a long time, to not worry.


She is attempting to get her prescription blood pressure pills sent from Brazil, which could take a week or more to receive.  I'm concerned that if something happens to her health wise, that it could turn out bad, financially, while she is here in USA visiting. She also is in need of cataract surgery, that her insurance in Brazil would pay, if she were there.


My questions are: Does anyone know of a health insurance that she would qualify for, since she is already here? What is other peoples opinion, as to wether or not it would be advisable for her to go back to Brazil, have her eye surgery, stock up on blood pressure pills, and wait until she has health insurance while abroad in USA, before coming back to visit?


I appreciate any answers. I realize that if something happened health wise, it could drain the bank account, and then some...without insurance.
