Hello everyone!


I am sure there are some people who had their visas in Guangzhou, by DCF. How long did it take you from applying the petition to the interview?

arrowDoes it matter if I file for AOS right after we get married?

We are planning to get married on Jan 2nd and I hope to file for GC as soon as Jan 3rd, after we receive marriage certificate copy. In Houston, they say you can get the certified copy on the same day. 


I wonder if this would be a red flag. The reason we are doing this is because we don't want to file this year, to avoid marriage penalty. Our marriage is pushed to 2017 so we can remain single in 2016 and enjoy lower tax rate. 


Is this going to be an issue? Should we address this concern in the cover letter or something?


Thank you all!  :joy:

arrowChanging EAD

I have some questions about my status.


I am currently on F1 OPT and my EAD expires in February 2017.


My wife is a citizen so on August 8th we filed I-485, I-130, I-131 and I-765 altogether. In late September USCIS requested from us for initial evidence and we submitted what they requested late October. 


November 15th checked the updates and it says I485 is ready for scheduling for the interview. 


November 21th, I-131 travel document approved.


November 25th, new EAD card mailed out.


It's been 2 weeks and we still haven't received any interview notice for the I-485 interview, and no updates at all for I-130 since August 8th received the application. So I called USCIS today and their response was it could take up to 90 days for us to received the notice and my field office processing cases as of today for I-485 is March 26th.


1. Since my initial submission is in August that means I have approximately 4 more months to wait for my interview, is this correct or my submission is considered as November since we had to resubmit additional documents?

2. Now since I will have a new EAD along with the travel document, what do I need to be aware of if I need to leave the country?

3. Should I immediately report to my company after I receive the new EAD or can I keep using the OPT EAD until it expires in February?

4. If I have to change, that means my status would be called pending of AOS right? Then am I still exempt from FICA taxes? Since I'm on OPT now I'm exempt from FICA taxes.


Please make comments and help me better understand my situation a little bit more, my main concern is traveling, my job requires frequently international travel. 


Thank you.

Hello Visa Journey,


How can I tell where is my field Office? Is it the address on my I-797C form?


I live at Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91701. it is in San Bernardino County. does that mean my field office is  San Bernardino ,CA .


Is there a difference between my Field Office and my USCIS local office?


Sorry if this is a stupid question, I'm just confused.
