|K1 approved, fiance coming next week, questions.
Read 421 Times
So my fiance will be here next week (YIPPEEE).
And i had a few questions in regards to the next steps. (Yes, i did search but found conflicting info)
I know she needs to apply for a social security number but already has one from her summers working on a J1 visa, do we need to go to the SS office still, or is that fine since she has one already?
The next step would be marriage license and marriage.
Heres another part i'm confused on. we apply for the Adjustment of Status(I-485)
It says we can apply for the employment authorization(I-765) during the same time for no additional fee. is that correct and do i mail it in with the I-485 in the same envelope?
also, i saw mention of a I-131. What is the exact purpose of this form, do we need to fill it out? mentions re-entry, the only time my fiance plans to leave the US is to visit her family on maybe 1-2 week visits, but nothing immediately. Maybe next January.
And this gets mailed to Chicago correct? Thats what i found under the USCIS website for the filing location.
Also, are there any samples filled out of the I-485 and I-765?
Once everything is sent in for the AOS, is it simply a waiting game then until biometrics visit and interview?
Am i missing anything else?
Thank you very much!!! Any additional help would be wonderful.
PS: this is what i'm currently referring to.
|Denial at Final Interview for $$$ Even Though It Meet Guidelines
Read 1370 Times
I just got the worst news I could have ever heard... My wife was scheduled for her embassy interview March 30, 2016 in Tbilisi, Georgia. She arrived on time and prepared. The consular officer asked some questions and then told her that my income is not enough to qualify her for the CR1 visa. She was denied because she was at risk to become a 212(a)(40(A) Public Charge, ie freeloader... I pllanned and obtained a job that does meet and even exceeds the minimum income requirement for a family of 5. I sent the following letter in responce:
Greetings U.S. Embassy Georgia,
I wanted to let you know that I will be calling you on March 31, 2016 at
08:30 AM to ask some questions of the Consular Officer who interviewed my
wife, Maggie XXXXXXX, on March 30, 2016 for an Immigrant Visa.
Specifically, I would like to know how a determination of 212(a)(40(A)
Public Charge was determined when proof of income in excess of both the
2015 and 2016 HHS Poverty Guidelines for Affidavit of Support were
provided. After living in the Republic of Georgia for 16 months as a
volunteer English teacher working for Teach and Learn with Georgia I
returned to the United States on July 22, 2015 to secure employment
sufficient to sponsor my family to immigrate to America with me. I was
hired at XYZ Corporation permanently on August 30,
2015. I negotiated my salary specifically to meet the 2015 HHS Poverty
Guidelines for Affidavit of Support for a family of 5 at 125% of HHS
Poverty Guidelines which is $35,550. My negotiated salary is 36,000
annually proven by a letter from the Human Resources Manager Keith XXXX
of XYZ Corporation approved by Harry ZZZ who is the
President and CEO XYZ Corporation. This amount was
arrived at to be in excess of the minimum annual salary required for
approval. According to my pay stubs submitted to the National Visa Center
my earnings are calculated by dividing $36,000.00 by 2080 (52x40) hours
worked annually or $17.31 per hour at 40 hours per week. The Visa Refusal
Sheet provided to my wife specifically requests a joint sponsor. I am
willing as is XYZ Corporation to provide any information
you may need to substantiate my income including pay stubs, or human
resources payroll records. Please feel free to contact either Keith ZZZZ
or Harry ZZZZ with any need you may have. Please let me know if I can
provide any additional information to prove my income to you.
Help!!!! What do I do now!!! I have nobody who would open their bank accounts to the government if one of us fell on hard times. Can I fight this based on what I showed them? Is their a supervisor?
