arrowNew ESTA needed with new passport? (split topic)

Hello! It took a while to read this thread, but I couldn't find anything that worries me. I will try to make the story as short as possible.


We been dating for 3 years, my then fiance was visiting me many times as he could afford to retire. I visited him twice in the USA under VWP: last year spring - 5weeks, this year spring - 8 weeks. We got married in the USA 2 months ago and I came back to my home country. We are planning to file for CR-1 in October. I would stay in my home country, he will come to stay with me during this process. We want to go back to the USA together for like 2,5 months while our Petition is pending.


The question is:    I got my VWP verified with my maiden name on almost 2 years ago. I am changing my national passport now into my married name; do I have to update my VWP on-line changing my passport# and my married name or I have to apply for the new VWP? As I understand, since my VWP is still valid I just have to log in on-line and update new changes. Would it be any problem? Can they deny my VW?


Should I use my old VWP paper with my old data, grab my old and new passport as an authentication and pray they would let me in?


Thank you!

arrowDS-260 form. questions for Healthcare worker. HELP

Me and my wife are in the process to finish the DS-260 form filling. In the DS-260 form there are a couple of questions related to health care professionals.


Are you a health care worker seeking to perform such work in the United States but have not yet received certification from the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools or from an equivalent approved independent credentialing organization?



My wife has a Bachelor Degree in Dental Hygiene and is currently working as a Dental Hygienist in Lithuania. Her intention is to perfom such work in the U.S. also, but she does not have any certificationfrom the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools or from an equivalent approved independent credentialing organization? If she answers "Yes" then she has to explain why. Well the main argument for this is, that she would get all the required certifications and licences to perfom such work after she gets the green card and emigrates to the U.S., she could find a job which does not require any training or experience while she will get all the licenses, because to get the diploma evaluation and to get the right certifications costs money and takes up time.

If she would answer "No" she would be lying, because her studies and her professional experience shows that she is a Dental Hygienist and she is related to Health Care. So this could end by denied viza during the interview.

Can we hope that the explanation which we have could be accepted and would not destroy our hopes to get the Green Card during the interview or it is a must for her to get all the certifications before the interview? Maybe somebody has previous experience with a similar situation?


We are a bit confused here...:(

arrowRFE for I-864

Hi guys,


I am looking for some explanations about the RFE we got last week and confirmation that I am on the right path responding to it.


We filed for the adjustment of status from my K1 visa in the beginning of July and recently we got a letter stating that:


1) The petitioner/sponsor's income on the Federal income tax return does not meet or exceed 125% of the poverty guideline. The petitioner/sponsor lists their current income on Form I-864 as an amount to be considered as sufficient; however, no evidence has been submitted as proof of current income. Submit evidence of the petitioner/sponsor's current income. Such evidence should include: letter of employment containing the following - dates of employment, nature of the job etc., pay stubs, evidence of other income.


2) Submit all supporting tax documentation submitted to IRS for the most recent tax year.


3) Based on the documents submitted with Form I-864, Affidavit of Support, for the petitioner/sponsor, the income did not meet 125% of the poverty guideline for the petitioner/sponsor's household size. Submit evidence of assets that meet the standards listed below or obtain joint sponsor.


As for the first one, I screwed up because we did not include anything about the current income so we collected the pay stubs for the last  months and should get the letter from employer soon too. However, I do not understand the part about the tax return not meeting the guideline. We included tax transcripts from the last 3 years and the latest one was above 30k. Is it because the tax return from the second year did not meet the guideline? Or is it just a standard beginning and the main point is about the proof of current income?


Secondly, why would they ask us the supporting tax documentation if we sent the transcripts? Not sure if I am reading too much into that but maybe it has something to do with me filing the taxes for this recent year jointly? Anyways, again not a problem to provide them with W-2s, also I plan to include the full copy of the most recent tax return just in case.


And finally the last most confusing part about not meeting the poverty guideline. Is it because we did not provide the proof of current income and this point is in case our current income that we will provide proof of does not meet the guidelines? That should not be a problem though since my husband makes over  30k. Just wondering why they keep repeating that part of not meeting the guidelines, it's kind of scary.


All in all, I am planning to send a new I-864 form (with the current income amount based on the letter from employer and pay stubs since in the original form we wrote the amount from last's years tax return), letter from employer, pay stubs, a copy of recent tax return, W-2s.


Do you guys think it should be enough? And maybe someone could explain me all these things I asked? I would really appreciate all of your help and answers! And sorry for the long post, just wanted to give as much information as possible.

arrowFiling DS-260. Passport validation after marriage

Hello, me and my fiance are about to get married. She was selected for further DV-2015 processing so we will send our DS-260 forms after we receive the marriage certificate. The question we have is: does my wife needs to change her passport before filling the DS-260 form? I mean her last name will change and I believe that if she will ask immigration office to get a new passport the passport id number will change also. Maybe the marriage certificate will be ok during the interview and she does not have to change her passport after the marriage to fill the ds-260? Please advise us.
Thank you for your help!

Hi my wife recently got her green card, and applied for her social security number a day ago. Shes home sick and wants to know if she can visit her family with her green card or does she have to wait for her ssn to be sent in the mail? and does she need a ssn to buy the airline tickets? I would be going with her to visit.

Also can she work with her green card only if she has a ssn?


Trying to find out before i purchase any plane tickets, Thanks for any help.
