I am filing a 129f for my fiance. I have previoulsy been married to a woman for whom i submitted and 1-130, but the marriage ended almost ten years ago. I am stil on speaking terms with her and called her to see if she has any of the information as i do not have any. She told me that she does not, all i have is her A# and i could just put down the month of the filing i can get that form my passport entries and exits. I am wondering if anyone has had problems with not knowing the exact dates of previous paperwork, or of marriages. We were also married twice, once in the us and once abroad. Long story but we ended up going to the embassy in her country and getting married and doing all of the paper work over there. I also do not have the exact dates of our marriage overseas. I can try a freedom of information act request but i think that it could take a long time. Anyone who has experienced problems with dates, or success in giving only a month or range of time on the forms, please respond. I am not sure what to do about this matter.
I have alot of questions regarding citizenship for my wife and step daughter. Can someone please break down the process for a child becoming a citizen? My situation is alittle complicated but we are trying to do this before she turns 18. (she is 16 yr. now)
My wife and step daughter have been permanent residents for 3 years as of March 2013. They are now eligible to file for Naturalization. When we removed the conditions for my wife and step daughter, my step daughter's green card came back with an incorrect birth year. We then sent a I-90 form, as it was an error of the USCIS, and we just received the response stating that the error was not theirs and the information they have is 'correct' based on what we have submitted. This is FALSE. I have records of everything we have submitted. At our INFOPASS appointment, they said in the system her birth year is 1977 instead of 1997. They said that we would need to submit a new I-90 and pay $450 to have the green card corrected. This is outrageous! Her birth year was correct on all documents including her conditional permanent resident card, but once we removed conditions, it was incorrect and is incorrect in the USCIS system.
We then thought that it was be cheaper if we just used the money and start the process for naturalization since we are now eligible.
What is the process for my wife and step daughter to file for naturalization?
Does my wife have to file a N-400, become naturalized then file an N-600 for her daughter (my step daughter)? (Her daughter is a permanent legal resident minor, now with an incorrect birth year on green card)
Is it necessary to file an N-600 for my step daughter? She just turned 16, will we be able to do all this before she turns 18?
Will my step daughter be able to become naturalized even though her green card has the incorrect birth year? Or do we need to fix that first, then file naturalization for her? We obviously want her correct birth year when she becomes a citizen.
Sorry for so many questions. Any information is greatly appriciated.
I have a problem with my step daughters permanent resident card. We filed the I-751 to remove the conditions and we received her green card in February with the wrong birth year. I then submitted a I-90 for the correction as it was a USCIS error. We received their response the other week stating that the error wasn't theirs, that it is correct going by the information we submitted. This is FALSE! I have a copy of everything I submitted and it was a filled out on my computer and the birth year was CLEAR.
I then scheduled an INFOPASS appointment which was this morning and they said that there was nothing they can do. We need to submit a new I-90 and pay another $450!!!! If we file an appeal it will take up to a year for a decision and will be $650!!! So obviously the $450 is the fastest way to do it, BUT its not fair. They clearly made the error and now we are FORCED to pay another $450 for another green card. And I'm not sure but I hope not another I-751 because that is where it is supposedly incorrect. I don't know what to do...
My 1st reaction to this was my wife needs to file for citizenship as she is now able to as of March. Once she is a citizen, her daughter will become a citizen because she is a minor (16 yr old). But if I do that, would I need to still correct her current green card with her correct birth year? They have her birth year as 1977 instead of 1997.
This really sucks because we were going to send my step daughter to Colombia for the summer so she can be with her grandmom but now we can't. The only way they would stamp her passport to allow her to travel is if we file another I-90 (pay $450) and schedule another INFOPASS appointment with the receipt letter of the I-90.
Has anybody been through this situation? Any advice on what to do?
Anyone has any idea when are the oath ceremonies in fairfax, VA? I passed my interview for citizenship last tuesday june 11th, 2013 at the fairfax office....any ideas of how long yours took for oath in VA? Dates?
Hi. We received the NOA2 and NVC has forwarded our I-129F to the Bogotá, Colombia embassy. I am preparing to fill out the I-134 and wanted some country-specific requirements on Bogota.
I'd like to do the I-134 without tax transcripts as I'm currently resolving a tax issue (long story short, something was not filed correctly for 2011 taxes and I'm working it out with the IRS -- I am not in debt with them but to handle the situation takes some time).
I do have over six digits in savings and very good income. I can provide my last year's W-2 (previous to that I was self-employed, hence the tax transcript dillema), current pay stubs, can provide my employment contract that states my position as an executive of my company and what my compensation is, etc.
If anyone knows if Bogotá would simply accept liquid assets as a show of financial support, then I think I would pass for this and sidestep the whole tax transcript problem for now.
I complete the two sheet and mailed the form off to the Vermont office and included the payment.
I read the form instructions and it never stated exactly what else needed to be included in the petition filing.
After mailing I called the USCIS and they told me not to worry about including any other information that they would let me know exactly what documents they needed once they start reading my case.
It's been 4 months and a letter arrives from USCIS saying:
"if you disagree with the decision and have additional evidence to show the decision is incorrect you may by filing a I-290B, notice of appeal or motion. Enclosed copy. You may include a brief or written statement to support your appeal. You have 33 days to file from this notice. After that the decision is final.
They never say what documents they need? No checklist.
Has anyone out there been approved and know what they want?
I paid $340 and they can't even send me a list of needed documents.
Ok so my husband and I have been married for 2 months now and are currently in the process of finishing the I-130 forms. Now we are wondering if he does apply for a tourist visa in Colombia (home country) will that hurt our I-130 process. The reason he wants to do that is because we have both come to realize that the process might take longer and well obviously with me working and not having a vacation until December he would like to come and visit as often as possible, as well as being able to spends our 1st holidays together.
Also I am aware that if he did that then he would need a letter from a USC what does the letter have to say and can I write one inviting him to the states? ?? Sorry we're just wanting to spend more time togather than just 3 weeks out of the year
I am trying to start filling out the forms and have some questions because I want to be sure I fill them our correctly to avoid delays. Hope you can help me answer the questions...
*Will the embassy send the code needed to make an appointment to my fiance's email? I looked over our I-29f and my email isn't anywhere.
*N/A and None, is it really important which one I put in? What about for example in the question about children I put in N/A and then leave the rest of spaces blank, is that ok or should I write N/A in each one?
*Phone number of where I'm gonna live, is it ok if it's a mobile phone number? And where it asks about greencard address do I put in "same as item 10"?
*On present occupation I am not sure...I am not officially working, I am just helping out my dad in his office, so do I put in unemployed or what?
*Employent in the last 10 years, on location...do I need to put in just city and country, or the address or what?
*Where do you intent to work in the US? if I don't know do I put in "unknown" or what?
*Educational institutions attended, do I put in just stuff after highschool or do I include highschool, elementary, courses, stuff I didn't finish?
*In my case, name and address of present employer, do I put in None or the address of my dad's office?
*When do you intend to arrive in the US? well, I won't know until my visa is approved, so do I leave it blank or put in a tentative date?
*Name and Telephone Numbers of Person in U.S. Who You Will Be Staying With or Visiting for Tourism or Business. Uhm,,,I'm not going for tourism or business so do I just put in my fiance's info?
*Have you ever been in the US? do I just put in the info of the last time I was there or do I have to attatch another page for times before that?
*Have you ever been issued a US visa? Do I just put in info of my current tourist visa?
Thanks! I would also appreciate any advice you have! :)
We recently filed the I-751 to lift conditions from my wife and her two children (18, 10). We only received a notice of Biometric appointment for my wife and the 18-year old. Does the 10-year old typically not have a Biometric appointment? Or was her appointment notice lost in the mail?
