arrowIR-1/CR-1: Need info on DHL and sending additional paperwork

Hi everyone!!


I am new to Visa Journey andd am hoping someone can help me out with this question! My husband (Peruvian) and I (U.S. citizen) have had our I-130 approved in Lima and we are now waiting for the packet of information with his interview date. I have read on another site that, prior to his interview, we have to register for DHL. That does not seem too complicated. However, I have gotten nervous because I have an aunt (Peruvian) who just had her interview at the Lima embassy for a IR-1/CR-1 visa to the U.S.. She, unfortunately, was missing paperwork. She was told that she needed to turn in her paperwork electronically before they could issue the visa. This is confusing to me. Does she really need to send the additional paperwork electronically (scan)? Or does she just need to register for DHL and then print out a paper that she mails with her documents? I would really appreciate if other members who have had to turn in paperwork after the interview could respond, letting me know how they sent in the required paperwork. I am aware that my husband and I may run into this problem and I would love to be prepared, as well as help out my aunt with some information. Thank you all so much!!!

arrowITIN#? Amending Taxes Filed as Single, Process?

Hey everyone, I filed my taxes as single for 2013 because the accountant asked for her social security number in order for me to get a tax break.  I said she doesn't have a SSN, I'm not concerned with saving a little money on taxes and I didnt think our marriage was recognized here in the United States until she moved here.


It is 3 days after the accountant sent in my tax return electronically and now the accountant is saying that in order to amend it, I need to have an ITIN number for my wife.  I showed my accountant the wiki that says you can just write NRA on the tax return, but they said you cannot do that and they are following the rules that states.


1)  Does anyone have experience with this?


 I went to the IRS walk in area and the receptionist told me that I need to come back in in the morning and not to get my hopes up because how can they do a w7 for my wife if she isnt even in the united states.  I dont understand this and am having a very difficult time finding out what I need to do. 


2)  Can anyone help me understand?  Also, does anyone have documentation from the site that I can bring in tomorrow morning?


3)  What supporting documentation do I need to bring into the IRS walk in place?

arrowShould I ask to reschedule my interview date?

Hey VJers..


So today I received an email for both my wife and stepson confirming their interviews are on May 12th in Lima.


However, we still have not obtained the permission my stepson needs to travel out of the country. His dad has refused to sign, so we are currently going through the court system in order to obtain the needed permission. As it stands, we are awaiting for the legal opinion from the "fiscalia" so that the judge can make a decision. This is now also being delayed because they're all on strike.


I understand that without the permission for my stepson, he will be denied the visa. My question is, will they give us more time to obtain the permission by putting his case under AP? Also, will my wife's visa be denied because of the situation with my stepson? I'd like for her to be able to at least come visit while we are going through this legal battle for the permission.


I have a feeling this may vary depending on the embassy, but any insight anyone has on this would be greatly appreciated!

arrowRe: Change from conditional to permanent

Hey guys,


So last march I got my conditional permanent residency after my wife and I applied, she is a U.S. citizen. I was told that two years after, so in March 2015, I'd have to re-apply so I can remove the conditions and become a permanent resident. I was looking on this site for the paperwork I need to file, deadlines, and stuff like that but couldn't find anything. I was wondering if someone could hook it up with a link please. 


Also, this might be a stupid question, but with a conditional permanent green card, I can leave the country, right? We are planning a trip to South America and maybe Europe, so I just want to make sure I can leave and come back in. 


Thanks y'all!!!!!
