arrowquestion on marriage certificate

My fiancee and I will be married in Ontario in a few weeks.  At the ceremony the officiant will give us a "Record of Solemnity" showing that we are married and he presided lawfully over the ceremony.  Then the marriage is registered and the certificate can take up to 10 weeks to be issued.


My question is whether I can initially send in the Record of Solemnity with our I-130 application in lieu of the certificate and bring the certificate in with us for the interview.  Tacking on another 2 1/2 months to this process isn't something I really want to do right now.  As it stands at the moment she can't return into the country because the border authority has told her she doesn't have "significant enough ties to Canada" since sh lost her job and we're not sure how long this will take to fix. She is currently looking for new employment but even then it's not likely to enable her to re-enter the US immediately. Until then I'm stuck only being able to see her once a week driving 5 hours round trip instead of her being able to stay with me for a few days at a time.


Any information or advice is welcome!


Also, I'm really glad that I found this site!  The guides and info have already been a great help for me in understanding how to fill out the forms, what's needed and what to expect.


Thanks everyone!

Hello all!

I have another question. So, my husband submitted his packet for AOS including advanced parole document, work authorization, and obviously the aos papers. We submitted everything July 15th of this year and we also received all I-797's for each paper. Each paper has a receipt and for some reason when I enter the receipt number for the aos, nothing is coming up. It even says that we might've entered the wrong case number. But he had his biometrics taken for aos and work authorization. How long does it take for USCIS to start looking at the case?

My fiancé the petitioner is a veteran and receives disability payment monthly it's more than the amount required of 125% percent of the poverty line but he also works too. We are still in between the NAO1 and NAO2 stage. He is currently in the process of moving back to his home state soon(he got out of the military within the last year but still stayed around that area) to where we will both eventually live once all is approved. which will mean in the iinterm him quitting his current job and finding a new one once he moves. As he receives this disability payment. will that be enough for the support i-134 form. I know we still have time for him to get moved and settled before the interview/I-134 form is required. Will we need a cosponsor in this situation and what kind of evidence/statement of payments from the VA have others shown as this disability is tax free from the VA?

Hello all!

So my husband filed for his adjustment of status July 15th, 2016. He filed the whole packet which includes working papers, aos, and advanced parole document. We received all 3 I-797's for the applications and he went for his biometrics for aos and working papers on August 18th, 2016. He doesn't have a license so we took him to DOT to get his permit about 10 days after he went and had his biometrics done. DOT personnel said they couldn't issue him a permit because his biometrics weren't even in the system. The gentleman that was helping my husband at DOT was an immigrant himself and said that he totally gets what's going on. He said come back in a week and we'll see what's up. We came back almost a month later (this past friday which was September 23) and still nothing on the biometrics. But when we went online to see what our case statuses were on everything, his working papers (which require biometrics) and advanced parole document were successfully approved the same day (September 23rd). Nothing is being done with the adjustment of status though. It won't even show up on USCIS's website. My questions are this:


A) Don't they need biometrics for the working papers? How did they pass the working papers if the biometrics aren't even in the system?

B) When do they start working on adjustment of status? How long does it take for them to process the papers?

arrowForm I-751 - Process surpassing Expiration of Current Green Card

Hi there,


I'm due to submit Form I-751 to remove conditions from my green card. I understand that we have to submit the form 90 days before card expiration.  My question is that while we wait or our new green card, what happens if it surpasses expiration date of our current one? I doubt that USCIS will have everything processed and my new green card sent within the 90 days before my current one expires. Will this affect my ability to work?


Thanks for the help in advance, I am somewhat in panic mode already.
