Hi everybody (:


Is it possible to file at one field office and then attend a biometrics appointment (would try to just do a walk in) at another? My fiancée and I are filing this December from Phoenix, AZ and are moving to Dallas, TX in Jan or Feb (so interview will for sure be at Dallas office). I don't want to go through the trouble of switching field offices if it will delay the case.

I am a US citizen and I married my husband (same sex marriage) in September 2013 in California. We started filing the immigration paperwork soon thereafter. Here is where we are in the process: 


He received his work permit etc. in February and we had our AOS/i-130 interview on June 5th. The agent wanted more information because she had issues with the fact that I had been married to a woman for more than 20 years and wanted to make sure our marriage is legitimate (not a problem). She made it very clear that while our case is unique, she will only give us the same level of scrutiny she gives to everyone else. So...We tried to believe her and we made it clear we only wanted to do things the right way and if she needs more information that we would do our best to provide it.


We waited around for her to type up the RFE, went home, and got to work on getting the additional verifications. We submitted every thing we could possibly get to verify the legitimacy of our relationship, although we had already given her a huge number of documents etc.  We received delivery confirmation from the USPS that they received the documents on June 12th. It has now been 3 1/2 weeks, but we have heard not one thing. Our case status on USCIS website has not been updated and when we call, nobody can tell us anything.


We have tried to call to verify that they have the information, but have been told that we need to make an infopass appointment if we need any other information. However, when I tried to make an infopass appointment I was told that even if we go in that they won't be able to tell us anything because our case is with the agent and it's all one her timetable. I asked how long she can take before making a decision and was told, in no uncertain terms, "she will take as long as she needs". 


Basically, my husband is frantic and I am getting very worried as well. We could really use some insight and confidence that everything will be okay. How long before we should get really concerned? What more can we do? Please give us some guidance.  Thank you so much.

arrowCHECKLIST COVER LETTER (after sending I-864) small mistake.

Hi everyone, well I'm here again and I would like to know if somebody could help me.


Last friday I've received news from NVC, which said that my father in law (additional support) forgot to enter the date of signature and another mistake (in the form I-864). We fixed the problem the same day and resent the form again. My doubt at this point is... will this situation delay the approval of my application for the VISA CR-1 (I-864) another month? Or on the contrary, will I receive some news in the next days?


Many Thanks!

arrowRenewal of J1 form ds 160

I came to the States to do my master's degree. Now I graduated, but I'll continue in a Ph.D. program. I'm going back to Chile though and I have to renew my Visa.

The issue I have is that in the ds 160 form the system ask me for an address, and I don't know what address to put in. I've been living here for 2 years and I don't have a current address in Chile. Should I put my address here or do I have to put an address in Chile?

arrowI-864 and Sponsor HELP

I'll try to make it short. So, I have my interview date and most of th documents are ready. However, I have a question regarding the I-864. 


My husband was doing an MBA last year, so although he did file a Tax Return, our income was lower than the 125%. He graduated last year and since January of this year he has been wiorking on his current job and his annual income is higher than the 125%. The thing is that his Tax Return for the past 3 years will not be enough to prove our income is higher, but his paystubs and letter of employment should be anough to prove income. HOWEVER, the lady who gave me the papers for package 4 at the embassy told me that I would need a joint sponsor since my husband income's was not high enough. 


BUT I don't think she understood that he did file taxes and that this years his income is higher than the minimum required. IS IT TRUE WE NEED AN ADDITIONAL SPONSOR? Can't my husband with his current income be the only person signing an Affidavit of Support? I aks this because my father-in-law read the I-864 Form and he found it a little but too demanding and too much responsibility. If it is extremelly necessary he will sign it, but he prefers not to do it and so do we, since my husband has a good source of income. 


Any help you can give me on the matter or anyone going (or has gone) through the sama and who can give me a inside perspective would be appreciated :)


Thank you!!
