I read a looooottttt of posts trying to find the answers to my questions so I apologize if these were already asked, I couldn't find anything...
I'm a student and my parents are going to be the primary sponsors for my foreign fiancé. It seems there are mixed conclusions over whether both my parents and I should fill out separate I-134s or if they only should support him. Since I'm the fiancé, and I do have an income (though miniscule), and I do plan on using that income to buy him/us things, I feel like the best decision is to fill out an I-134 myself and then have my parents do another one. I have only part time work, so I think I will write "see attached" on question 7 where it asks for my employment info, and then I will attach a letter explaining my student status, my part-time work, my intentions of adding to our financial support, and my tax returns for the past 3 years. Does this seem ok?
My other question is about my parents... the form is constructed for a single individual to fill it out, but it seems weird to choose one of my parents only, and while my dad meets the poverty requirements alone (but not by a lot) it seems like it would be a negative misrepresentation to say that our entire household's income (plus my fiancé!) would be limited to his alone... how has anyone else handled using parents as sponsors? I know I can just add a lot of attachments, but I'm not sure how to treat the initial form.
I received an RFE late April and have till July 12th to respond. I had made plans since the beginning of the year to travel June 20th - July 25th. I have the RFE response packet ready to send back to USCIS. HOWEVER, I am afraid if I do send it back now, I might be requested to attend an interview within my travel days.
My husband is going to travel to the same destination July 10th and we will back together on the same plane. He suggested that he mails the packet by July 1st, just in case we receive an interview letter, we would be able to make it back home within 3 weeks or so. I am not sure if that is an ideal solution since I (LPR) am the primary applicant for my ROC application and I am not going to be present in the US at the time he suggested.
Should I mention my travel plans in the RFE cover letter and explain why I chose to send the response back right before the deadline was up? Should I call USCIS give them my travel dates and let them know my willingness to go for an interview before or after my travel dates?
So my sister is applying for her husband to come over to the states. They current live abroad and need to have a joint sponsor for their I-864. my brother will be the sponsor so my initial question is, Does he only need to fill out the I-864 or the I-864 and I-864A as well? My brother is the sole income earner for himself and his wife and they file their taxes jointly and that leads me to my next question Since my brother and his wife file their taxes jointly will his wife also have to fill out an I-864A even she works ?
My fiance had his interview on January 10th, 2013 at the US Embassy in Cairo, Egypt. The CO informed him that everything looked good but there is going to be administrative processing and it should take maybe a couple weeks or a month. Our case has been in AP since then with no changes. After two months of AP, I called the Department of State and was told basically that I just had to wait. A few weeks later, I went to my Congressman's office to see if they could help. They reached out to the embassy in Cairo and was told basically that the same information and that all we could do is wait. Our paperwork is "updated" once every month or two on the Department of State website (https://ceac.state.gov). Before I reached out to my Congressman, our case had not been touched for almost two months (Feb. 5 to March 28) and was only touched on the day that the update was requested. I waited another two months and reached out to my Congressman's office again last week to request an update on the case. Our case has not been "updated" since April 14th on the Department of State website. I am still waiting to hear back from my Congressman's office but I am not holding my breath regarding any good news. We started this journey over a year and two months ago and it seems to be never ending.
Today is my birthday and all I can feel is sadness because I thought for sure my fiance and I would be together by now.
Is there anything more that I can do? I am pretty sure the answer to this question is no but I just need to feel like I am doing something.
i have a question to you. i'm 26 younger than my wife we met 2 years ago and she visited me twice before in my country,
we really love each other and wish to have nice life together,, she didn't born in usa she was not u.s citizen before and just got the nationality this year then she got her divorce paper with her ex husband he was american and then we married
i'm younger than her by 26 years old and we deiced to go forward for cr1 visa but i'm worry that maybe embassy in cairo deny it and we just waste our time and money for that.
i already sent the embassy e-mail ask them is there problem with age with u
and they respond like below.
Please note that your wife may file you an I-130 petition in the USCIS.As for the age issue ,the officer has the right to question such age gap ,however the officer will make the decision at the day of the interview.
so what's your opinion in that we just go forward in that or no ?
and anyone have any suggestions to me that will be useful further ?
