Has anyone else seen their passport status go from 'Final processing' to 'Mailed' then back to 'Final processing' but with an expected date 2 days later than it had originally been?   Do they update for both the book and the card since they are processed separately?

I arrived to the U.S. in July 2011 with my brothers and mother on K-3 visa as my mother married an American. I have a green since June 2013. My question is the following: Is there a possibility to stay outside the U.S. for more than six months without losing my residence? I heard that possibily exists. I appreciate any help.

arrowUpdating status with SSA

How long should it take before the SSA shows that someone is a US citizen after updating status with them?


My wife waited 21 days after her oath to go to the SSA and update her status to be certain that it was in the SAVE database and it has been 12 more days since she did so but the SSA website still says (under request replacement card): "If you are not a USC, you can request a new card at the local office or by mail.  If you are a USC, please inform your local office."


On the other hand, mine just has a link that says "Request a replacement card" (because they definitely have me as a USC).  This leads me to believe that they still have her listed as an LPR for some reason even though she waited well more than enough time to inform them of the update.


Should she go to the SSA office again to see what's going on?  She has no proof of being a USC at the moment because her Naturalization Certificate is off in passport-land.

Good evening fellow VISA Journey friend.  I have a question as I am completely lost on this.  I brought my wife here on a Fiancee Visa and we married and she now has her green card.  She has been here for about two years now.   Her 11 year old daughter has been in Colombia under the custody of her husband and she now wants to bring her to the US and the husband has agreed.  We can't wait to get her here.  


What forms do I need to fill out to get the process started?  Do I just file out the I-130 to start the process?  Any info you can give me would be appreciated.

arrowWhere, what country, are you looking to retire to?

Retirement is about 10 years off for me, but my wife is starting to talk about it more than I am. Not that I'm not interested, mind you.


The conversations have started with Miami because it's a relatively short one stop flight to her home country. But I've told her in no uncertain terms that she can go ahead and kill me and bury me in Florida if it's her intent to retire there. No offense meant to those who live in and love Fla, but it just isn't my cup-o-tea.


So it'll probably come down to living in Colombia, which has a few cities that I have enjoyed. Living some distance from my mother in law would have some appeal, although my brother in law is a very cool guy so it might not be all bad living in her home city.


Other possible living destinations that might work are Panama and Costa Rica, although the latter has become much more expensive through the years. No direct flights either from CR to COL, as there are from Panama City.


For what it's worth, I learned something the other day. My wife claimed that she came to the US just for me. She never had any real desire to live in the US, and now that she has, she is fine staying here through my working career but then wants to explore our options, big time.
