My wife has decided to keep her maiden name, will this throw up a red flag?  The whole thing is kind of ridic, I mean our marriage is very real so we don't try and find a bunch of crap to put together, I mean the mortgage and bills are in my name, (as was with my last American wife) when we travel for vacations, I work for an airline and I fly for free, so no tickets used to show uscis!  We each have our own credit cards (I wnted her to establish credit with her SSN when she arrived) has been like that for almost 2 years!  now I have to start jumping through hoops,  getting everything joint, etc etc just to prove something like our deep love for eachother exists? GRRRRR

I am sure this has been answered, however me and my wife will file for her removal of temp GC and apply for the 10 year green card.  My question is, we will apply in the 90 day window before her temp GC expires, how long does it usually take to receive the 10 GC?  I know we get the extension etc etc, I just want a time frame 2 months, 8 months?  average time she will get it?

arrowHELP!!! My wife's friend being treated like a SLAVE!!!

My wife has a friend that is about 35 and has only been in the United States for a little over a year and she's married to an american that is retired and is 65 and when they got married, he made her sign a pre-nup when she got over here stating she will get NOTHING if they get divorced or he dies.  He told her that she could get a lawyer to read over the papers if she wanted, knowing she wouldn't have the money to do that.  When she got here, he paid for everything and he took care of her and my wife said the house looked very nice and very huge and you could tell that he was well to do and also retired getting monthly checks from pension and retirement.  My wife's friend now has a part-time job and he keeps track of every hour she works.  He will not let her get her own bank account.  Since getting a part-time job (my wife said she gets paid $8.05/hr and is only part-time), he tells her he don't have any money and she needs to pay for the groceries and if they go anywhere.  So it sounds he's saving his money and just spending hers.  He tells her to sign the check so he can deposit into HIS bank account.  So there's no way for her to save any money back.  Her husband won't allow her to use the phone before or after a certain times of day, morning or night.  Will not let her get her own phone.  He says you don't need a phone cause he'll always be with her and he'll be there to pick her up for work, so there's no reason for her to have a phone, he says.  If she uses the internet, she can't stay on very long cause he wants her to spend more time with him.  He also won't let her go anywhere without him and when he does the garden work, he wants her out there.  He wants her to be with him always.  My wife was talking to her when she got off work and after maybe 10 minutes, he told her to get off, it's after 10pm.  She said she wants to wait til she gets her green card and then leave him.  My wife told her she needs to stand up for herself and stop letting him treat her that way.  She says she would but she's afraid he might kick her out of the house and she has no money and no place to go.  Any advice and I'm afraid if something doesn't happen now, if he's got a God complex or whatever you want to call it and she does something wrong, he could literally lock her in a room and nobody would know a thing and her family in the Philippines does NOT know how he's treating her or even that they filed a pre-nup, otherwise she said that they would be upset and she doesn't want them to know what is happening to her.  I'm just worried something bad could happen to her and nobody would know....


Any advice please on what my wife should try to get across to her or perhaps would it be in our place to report what's going on and if that is the case....HOW?   (Hence why I am posting on here, cause I personally don't know what to do.  The girl doesn't deserve this life to be treated like a slave and not allowed to really have any fun.)

Hi, my fiancé is from the Philippines and I am having difficulties trying to figure out how to put her address on the forms, because she lives in a village and not just some city with a street number and name. Any help in pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated.
