arrowUSPS Mail Hold Service

We recently filed for my husband's AOS from an F-1 student visa in October. We have not received any RFEs and our case is ready to be scheduled for an interview. We will be traveling for a little over a month during the holidays and I want to place our mail on hold. There's a chance we'll receive his EAD/AP just prior to our departure (all travel is domestic so no worries there). I've read that USCIS does not allow their documents to get forwarded. 1. Is this true? 2. Do USCIS documents get held like any other mail or would they get returned?


I'm going to try and delay the mail hold to begin about a week after we depart because we live in an apartment and our mailbox is locked so I know it's secure. I'm just concerned that if USCIS sends any mail correspondence like for interview scheduling, etc. that the mail hold might interfere. Although, I believe our attorney receives copies of the same documents we receive.

arrowIs it 5 years from when you become an UNconditional resident?

So I became an LPR in October 2010. I got my conditions lifted October 2012. I sent my citizenship application checking the "LPR for 5 years" box, but I accidentally put 2012 instead of 2010, so of course they sent it back. But now I'm wondering if it's 5 years from when I became an UNconditional LPR though? Or just 5 years from when I became an LPR overall?


Also, I had a DUI in October 2012, but it got dropped down to a negligent driving charge and deferred, will that hinder my case?


Thanks :)

Received an email from USCIS last October 15,2015.

Your Case Status: Card/ Document Production

On October 15, 2015, we began producing your new card for your Form OS155A, IMMIGRANT VISA AND ALIEN REGISTRATION,. We will mail your card to the address you gave us. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to gibe us your new mailing address.

This step applies to applications that result in an applicant receiving a card (such as a "green card") or other document (such as a naturalization certificate, employment authorization document, travel document, or advance parole). Applications will be in this step from the time the order to produce the card/document is given until the card/document is produced and mailed to the applicant. You can expect to receive your card/document within 30 days of the approval of your application. If you do not receive your document, please contact our National Customer Service Center at 1-800-375-5283.

Partner and I just about to send away our I-129F.

We both live in NZ (she is USC), so are unable to get a cheque from a US bank account.


What is best method of paying?

Will a USD money order from westpac or the like do?


Any help appreciated.

arrowI-134 Question 7 - Both outside USA

Good afternoon everyone,

First time posting on here.


My partner is an American who has been living with me in New Zealand for the past 3 years.


We have decided to go ahead and start the process of getting a K1 visa.


On question 7 of the I-134 form, she needs to declare income - BUT we are both working outside of the USA, and will be unemployed on arrival in the states.


Do declare her New Zealand income as part of this? Or do we say unemployed?

Unfortunately, we are young, so have no assets by which to support our application.


Any advice is much appreciated.
