I'm searching through the threads and I'm not sure what qualifies for an expedite for EAD and how you go about requesting one?

My wife and I are trying to collect all the supporting documents to file for the I-130 for her permanent residency.  She is a Canadian citizen, but she was born and raised in Russia.  I'm assuming we need a notarized and translated copy of her birth certificate, but on the birth certificate her mother's married last name is used.  For the marriage license we had to put her mother's maiden last name.  Will it be an issue if the mother's last names don't match on the documents?  I've noticed that some marriage licenses don't even have the parents names on them. We are worried about having to dig up several documents to prove her mother's change of name at marriage on top of the birth certificate, which can get very expensive for her Russian family.  All these records are in Russia, so our ability to track them down is limited.  Any help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

I'm looking at the processing time and it says (eFile, Mail and Walkin)... I got my biometrics appointment letter last week and completed the biometrics via walk-in on Monday. We filed AOS by sending it through the mail, but did a walk-in biometrics. Usually how long can one expect to get notice?

arrowThinking of filing a service request at TSC? Please read this first!

Hi everyone! I'm seeing a lot of posts about Service Requests and being at the "5 month" mark, so I think we need a topic about this...


When TSC was reporting a 5 month processing time for I-129Fs, the criteria for a Service Request was waiting 5 months plus 30 days before one could be filed. As we all know TSC is reporting a processing date of December 17th for I-129Fs. Not only does this "December 17th" date signify that TSC is way behind on adjudicating I-129Fs, it also happens to be the current Service Request cutoff date. This means that the "5 months plus 30 days" rule no longer applies, now in order to file a Service Request you must have mailed (yes mailed, it is not based on your NOA1 date) your petition before December 17th, 2013. If TSC updates with an approximate date again next month (say for example January 17th) that would be the new cutoff date. If TSC goes back to listing 5 months, the "5 months plus 30 days" rule would apply once again.


So for those of you that didn't know, that's how Service Requests are currently working.

arrowEstablishing Credit

So, how has everyone established credit in the US?


I can't seem to apply for any credit card.  Is it because they know I'm on a visa? and I can't work?  Should that even matter if my husband pays the bills? 

I just don't understand why I can't establish myself over here.
