I read a few topics about babysitting before getting the work visa. My future wife is being offered to babysit for extra money while she waits for the work visa. Now I know this is still considered work but what if she didn't charge them but they gave me money instead for allowing their children to be in my house?

I'm not one to normally bend the law but the extra money would be a nice help. They would never be paying her for her services but paying me for allowing their children to be at my home. She'll just always happen to be there.

arrowShould I get a receipt when I sent in my RFE?!

I sent in my RFE documents 2 days after receiving the request for more information. I can see that USPS delivered it, but when I check my case status - nothing has changed. Should I receive any notification that they got my RFE documents?? I called them up a few times, and they are 100% unhelpful. They can't give me a yes or no. So I'm stuck wondering should I just resend the documents or wait 30 more days.




EDIT - Got my biometrics done the day I received the RFE, so that has to be a good sign. Hopefully!

arrowWedding planning while waiting for NOA2??

  I know everybody will warn against this.. but I am curious how many of you have planned or are in the process of planning a wedding while waiting for a NOA2?  I want to feel like a normal bride, so I would like to plan as "normal" of a wedding as possible while we are going through this process. I know most people will say they plan for a civil service right after entry, but I don't want to go that route.  I also feel like this process isn't as daunting when I occupy myself with the wedding planning.  The way I am handling it is, we are planning a smallish wedding of about 65, and we haven't put any non refundable deposits down ( the contract with the wedding venue includes a "movable" date). My date also is what (I hope) is enough time... March 5, 2015 NOA1 and Feb 13, 2016 wedding date (TSC). How is everybody else out there tackling wedding planning? Or if you planned a wedding in the past while waiting, how did it work out for you timing wise?

Hi all,


I took all the paperwork to my fiance on my last trip, so it was dated May 20.  Does anyone know how long the documents are valid?  I was wondering if I need to send them again before the interview.

arrowAny NVC calling advice?

Hi everyone. My fiance and I checked online and with our i 129f receipt # we saw that our case was approved by CSC on June 3. I had filled out the form to be notified by text and email but I have not received any notification nor has any hard copy arrived in the mail, I viewed others' timelines and it seems that the hard copy has normally arrived 7-10 business days after being approved. 


So we've been trying to call NVC to see if they have our case and if we have a case number. The number we've been trying is 1(603) 334-0700. I haven't been able to get through for the past few days and he called from England today and was on hold for twenty minutes and when the woman picked up she said "I have to transfer you" when he asked about our case number. Then he was disconnected because the queue was too long at this point.


Can anyone recommend a different number to call, possibly wherever she was trying to transfer him. Or can we get our case number online? Thank you in advance!
