Hey guys, So, my wife is Iranian. We met in Istanbul and we got married in February 2013 and I filed for immigration visa for her in December 2013. It's been more than 2 years now and about 2 months ago we've been notified by NVC that the paperwork review was done and our case is sent to US embassy in Ankara and we should wait for an interview to be scheduled. What I'd like to know is how long would we have to wait for the interview to be scheduled? I talked to an attorney and she told me that we shouldn't waste time and should contact the embassy and make an appointment. But the mail from the NVC said we have to wait for the embassy to make the appointment for the interview. We are confused now. What are we supposed to do? Is 2 years of waiting a usual period for a Green Card?

arrowH.R. 158 -- Visa Waiver Bill -- bad news for MENA members

Not sure if I understand all of this, but I think this would affect our spouses -- and maybe even us if we travel to Iran, Iraq or other MENA countries.

arrowName change in US, but not in former country?

My husband really wants to legally change his name here in the US. That in and of itself is not an issue, as I understand the process in Caifornia. However, we're about 6 months out from sending in his ROC paperwork. So timing-wise, can we do his name change now and just present name change with the ROC paperwork? Or should we wait to do the name change when he applies for citizenship?

Secondly, he would prefer not to change his name back in Iran -- partly because of the red tape involved, if he can even do it. For those of you familiar with Iranian naming practices, only certain names are acceptable and must be approved. He also has the prefix "Seyed," which, as I understand it, is a birth right title meaning "of the prophet", and that's the part of his name he dislikes the most, but Iran won't let him drop that, even if he did a formal name change there.

Then, can he have one legal name in the US and one legal name in Iran? One scenario I thought about that could be sticky is travel between US and Iran and names on tickets vs passports.

I've tried to convince him that it's ok just to have an "AKA" and just use his Iranian name for legal purposes, but he still wants the name change if possible.

Any thoughts?

arrowFiling I-129F for the SECOND time! Question number 14

Hello everyone.

As I have mentioned in my previous topics  my finace's I-129F got Approved by USACIS but unfortunately interview didnt go well and got refused by the CO at US Embassy in Yerevan, Armenia on Oct, 27th. and the application was sent back to USCIS for further actions. So im filing a new I-129F for her because I know the  previous one will be expired anyways before they review it again. But here  I have a problem with question number 14 which is says:  Have You Ever Filed For This Or Any Other Alien Fiance, Or Husband/Wife Before?

if you answered YES provide the following for each alien. 

14e. Date Of Filing 

14f. City or Town

14g. State

14h. Result 

what do I write for the date, city, state, and the result? is it the date that I-129F got approved by USCIS or the date that they received it?

also does it talk about my city and state that i live in or the center that the application got approved in? and for result will it be Approved or Refused? it got approved by USCIS in California Service Center - Laguna Niguel, CA  and got refused by U.S. Embassy in YEREVAN ARMENIA. im a little confused here. Fiance and I are experiencing a very difficult time now, we know it will take us another 5-6 months at least to repeat these processes again :( please share with us if you have any other advises that might help our case in such situation. THANK YOU AND WE ARE REALLY APPRECIATE .
