Hello everyone,

many thanks for your Support. Me fiance applied for a K1 Petition. After difficulties we received our NOA1. Waiting for NOA2.

However my Status of my esta was changed. I could travel before with esta. now its changed that i cant travel with esta anymore.

Last year december I applied for a Tourist visa like b2. But I never made the appointment because I had to work. But the weard part was that the embassy contacted me via email.

They wanted to know the relationship to the contact Person (my fiance) that i put on the visa. I thought they would ask all those question in the appointment.

So now I wanna apply for B2 visa. I want to visit my fiance for 2 weeks and it Looks like for me that i would get a denial. Should I apply for a b2 visa?

Thanks in advance

Hey y'all,

I submitted my I-131 together with my I-485 in February but I need to make a change to the date when I want to leave the US.

What's the easiest way to do that?

Hi Everyone,

We are about to file AOS from Visa Waiver, I am a naturalized USC and my spouse is from Germany

Here is a timeline:

07/07/2015: Spouse Entered US on a J-1 Visa

08/03/2016: Spouse Left the US

11/22/2016: Spouse Came back to the US, Visa Waiver with planned return on 1/17/2017

01/10/2017: Proposed

02/22/2017: Married

Right now we are trying to figure out how to structure our package, here is how we have it planned so far.

I'll be using paper folders to separate the I-130 package and the I-485 package

------------------------ I-130 Package ------------------------
1. Payment check for $535.00
2. Cover Letter. Signed and Dated
3. Form I-130: Petition for Alien Relative

3. Form I-130A
4. Copy of ALL pages of the US Citizen's passport.
5. A copy of petitioner's proof of naturalization
7. A copy of the intending immigrant's birth certificate along with certified and notarized translation
8. Certified Colorado Marriage License.
11. G-325A filled out by the US Citizen, signed and dated.
12. Two passport style photos of US Citizen
13. G-325A filled out by the foreign spouse signed and dated.
14. Two password style photos of Spouse
15. Evidence of a bonafide marriage

15. a. Sub-lease from USC to spouse?

15. b. Various photos over the course of a year showing my parents and spouses parents (they visited us while she was in the US)

------------------------ I-485 Package ------------------------

1. Payment Check for $1,225.00
2. Cover Letter. Signed and dated.
3. Form I-485: Petition for Alien Relative
4. Copy of the non Spouses Passport (biographical page as well as entry stamps).
5. Printed Electronic I-94 Copy
6. A copy of spouses birth certificate along with English translation.
7. Certified Colorado marriage License
10. Two passport style photos of Spouse.
11. G-325A filled out by spouse, signed and dated
13. I-864, Affidavit of Support
a. 2015 Tax return

b. 2014 Tax return
c. 2013 Tax return
14. I-765, Application for Employment Authorization

a. Passport Biographical Page of Spouse

b. Two Passport style photos of Spouse
15. I-131, Application for Travel Document

a. Passport Biographical Page of Spouse

b. Two Passport style photos of Spouse


We also had some questions, I'm not sure if we are allowed to ask multiple questions per thread though. If not, let me know and I'll take them down and post other threads.

Q: The new I-130 instructions from 02/27/2017 have no mention of a G325A, are they still needed?

Q: My spouse has an A-Number from her previous J-1 Visa but we are adjusting from a Visa Waiver, should we put the J-1 Visa A-Number on the forms or leave it blank?

Q: For the Bona-Fide proof on the I-130, I signed the lease before my spouse came back on the VWP. I am allowed to sublease however, would me subleasing to my spouse b enough proof that we are living together?

We have also opened up a joint bank account recently, but since she doesn't have a job yet we haven't used it.

The only other thing I could think of is adding her on one my credit cards and submitting a verification of that as proof? Any ideas?

Tax return or transcripts?

I have an ongoing 'discussion' with my husband about whether to submit tax returns or transcripts.

Shall I submit tax returns and/or transcripts with my ROC package? We have joint tax returns for the last three years plus we filed joint state taxes.

I have read on VJ it's better to file the transcripts, can someone please explain why?

Thank you

Why get Form I-407 after filing I-130?

Hi everyone! I've researched my butt off but cannot understand the email I received from my inquiry on postage from Frankfurt. Here's what was sent to me:

Normal letter size envelope with postage. We will be sending a copy of the form I-407 to you. Normal letter size, one page.

I only asked what postage should be included for the return envelope (instructions are for US postage) when filing I-130. Why would we be sent form I-407???
