arrowAlien number different on I-797 and I-94

Oh, good Lord. While filling out my AOS docs I noticed there is what I presume is a typo on my visa. A 3 became a 0 in my alien number. Is this going to be a huge issue? I'm going with the original number on the I-797 . Do I try to contact someone to fix this or just cross fingers and hope for best?

Hey guys, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this. Please direct me if so. 


After spending 4 years in the U.S. on a green card (2 years in part time University) I've decided to move to Ontario (University of Toronto) for school to be closer to some older family and to explore a new city/education.

What precautions should I take so I'm not eventually considered an "abandoned resident?" I've already moved. 

I've looked at things such as reentry permits but the whole legal process confuses me. My Green Card expires in ~6 years.

I love the States and want to live there once I figure out my education.

Thank you guys for any advice!

arrowWriting your local representative

Has anyone ever written their local representative to bring attention to their case?

Who did you write to, and what was the result?

My husband has been waiting in Canada since February. My petition has been approved and we sent the DS260 August 7th. (We will be dealing with the Montreal consulate). We have zero indication on how long it will be until he can live with us again.

We have a four year old and just had a baby in April, who he has barely seen in the five months she's been alive.  My kids need their father above all. This is shit, and it seems like no one knows about it. Every time I mention the situation to anyone, they are astonished of how long it is taking, let alone that he is not allowed to be here with us. Even if it doesn't speed up the process I think the testimonial would be of some value, right?

arrowQuestion concerning Medical in Scarborough with Dr. Lee

Hey guys, 


I have my medical appointment tomorrow morning in Scarborough with Dr. Randall Todd Lee. I'm just double checking to make sure I am well prepared and have everything in order. Does my checklist look like it is missing anything? 


- Three 2x2 passport photos 

- Interview Letter

- Passport

- Immunization Records

- $300 Payment

- Proof of Chicken Pox 


Also, I am bringing hospital records along proving that I am 22 weeks pregnant in case they need it. And I have my binder full of photocopies and originals of all requested documents, including my birth certificate, etc. 


Has anyone been to this doctor before? Perhaps you could describe your experience and shed some light on what I should be expecting? (ie. How long did the whole thing take?) That would be GREATLY appreciated! A little nervous here :s

I'm in the process of getting my Green Card. We filed the I-130 back in April and this is all we have heard so far dated April 25, 2014:


"Your case has been accepted and routed to the USCIS Nebraska Service Center for processing. Within 7-10 days by standard mail you will receive your official Receipt Notice (Form I-797) with your Receipt Number LINxxxxxxxxxx. With the official Receipt Notice (Form I-797) you may visit where you can check the status of your case using My Case Status. We suggest you wait until you have received your Form I-797 before checking My Case Status.

This confirmation provides notification of the date USCIS received your case.  This notice does NOT grant any immigration status or benefit. You MAY NOT present this notice as evidence that you have been granted any immigration status or benefit. Further, this notice does NOT constitute evidence that your case remains pending with USCIS. The current status of your case must be verified with USCIS.



A few days after that we received the I-797. 


That's it. 


From what we could gather the next thing we would hear would be in about 5 months, however I've been reading on here a lot lately and it seems that that is not the case. I'm pretty sure that we should have heard something else by now. 


We were married on Jan 12,2014 and decided to take a 3 month honeymoon in Israel, (where we met) while we were waiting out the 5 months. We are presently in Israel. We have people checking for mail to us regularly back home and signed up for electronic notifications. 


What do I need to do? We've been checking out case status and it says "Initial Review"


Thanks for any help you can offer.
