arrowK-1 visa check

Hey guys,

My name is David, and I am starting this k-1 visa process with my fiancé Liz. I am just starting to tie everything together for this nice package the government will be reading through and my question is with regards to the check I send them. Seeing as I am 25 years old, checks are a waste to me, but seeing as they require them, I will send one. The checks I have are from when I lived at home, and now that I live a couple miles from home, will the processor look at the check and my address and decline it because the addresses don't match, or will he just process the check and not worry about it? I couldn't find any information if they care. If yall have any info, that would be great.

Hello everyone!


So I have a few questions, if you could help with either of them that would be greatly appreciated :)


I have been living in New Zealand for the last 3 years with my fiancé and we are finally ready to make the big move to the US (I'm the US citizen). First question: Am I able to send the petition away from overseas? I know this may seem like a silly question but I haven't seen many posts from people living overseas with their fiancé. If I have just missed them please point me in the right direction :) Second: Since I have been living and working over in New Zealand is it ok that I don't have any income in the US? Will my evidence of income from NZ be enough?



Thanks for any help you can give!

arrowCan't change SSN to married name K1

I apologise as I am sure this would have been asked before.


Got SSN upon US arrival and before marriage, in maiden name. Was told to come in with marriage certificate once married and they would change my SSN to my new married name as state of California uses marriage licence as official name change document.


Got married on K1, went to go and change my SSN to married name but because my K1 visa 90 days had expired two days earlier, the system wouldn't let the guy change my SSN to my married name and he didn't really have any advice for me, just that he was sorry and he couldn't override the system and neither could his manager..


Not sure what to do?


Starting to get my documents together for AOS, do I do this in my married or maiden name? What about my work permit? does this have to match my SSN in maiden name? 


Am I ever going to be able to use my married name?!


Can someone please help!!

arrowMessed Up RFE
May 28, 2015, 5:27 am Last comment by Cody and Daisy

So my fiance just recieved a RFE from USCIS and its got a bunch of wrong/confusing info. EG Notice date of RFE is the same as due date, and the names on the second page are for different people (a tad concerning). I tried to find somewhere to email them, as fiancee can't call them for a few days (working/school), but no luck.


I just want to make sure we won't be penalised for missing this wrong date. And how to get the right RFE form?

Is my only option calling USCIS?

Long story short, I got my green card Sept 2014. I split with my husband about 3 months later and I left America.


I now live in Australia and have no intentions of ever going back. I've been out of the country 5 months and counting.


How would I go about returning my green card? etc I tried to look up the form online but couldn't find one so I'm not sure if I can even do it online or if I need to go into the embassy?
