arrowCouple of Questions (affidavit of support, military expedite, etc.)

Hey everyone. I'm from America and my fiancee is from South Korea. We got our NOA2 on May 13th, so we're just waiting for the NVC to get their act together. In the meantime I'm doing everything I can to prepare her for her interview and I have a couple of questions.


1. When I called the NVC, they said that after receiving my case number, I can apply for a "military expedite", seeing as how my orders forced me to leave Korea and created our separation. Is it going to make any difference? What part of the process gets expedited?


2. In the Affidavit of Support FAQ it states "Some foreign U.S. consulates require a 2nd affidavit of support which is called "sponsor's financial responsibility

under the social security act." It is a simple form and easily filled out and signed. The Hong Kong consulate has may
require this form." How do I know if I'm gonna need this thing?


3. In block 9 of the Affidavit of Support it asks "I have previously submitted affidavit(s) of support for the following person(s)" and block 10 "I have submitted a visa petition(s) to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services on behalf of the following person(s)." If I was married to a foreign national before and we went through the K-1 visa process, am I supposed to put her information in blocks 9 and 10?

arrowMarriage certificate of foreign country as an evidence

Hi, I'm putting things together for I-751 application.

I believe we have enough evidence that lists both our names, shows shared liability, etc. which is good!

But to be on the safer side, I want to include our marriage certificate from Korea. 

I have the original copy but I'm not sure if it's even necessary to include in the packet. If so, should I submit the original? 

My plan is to translate the document and submit with "a copy" of the original but not sure if that'd look forged. 

What about getting it notarized after making a copy? Would that be enough?

If anyone has included a copy of their foreign marriage certificate, I'd love to get some advice. 

Thanks a lot in advance.

arrowQuestion about Igor's list for TSC.

Was just going through Igor's list for TSC I129F approved applicants (since us TSC people have nothing better to do) and noticed that there were a considerable amount of applicants approved in only weeks.

For example February 2015 has a ton of applicants who were approved in mere weeks.

I know Philippines are auto expedited. As well as some other countries (not sure which ones exactly).

But some of the recipients countries listed definitely do not fall under auto expedite.

Just curious what else falls under an auto expedite.

arrowGetting Married on ESTA over K1?

Hello Everyone!



So to start off..


I am in the Army and I met my fiance while I was in S.Korea on tour, We became a couple on May 17th of 2014, we dated for several months and she came with me while I was on leave in September to meet my family and visit the US for the first time ever while I was on leave, I decided to pop the question and she gladly accepted! Before she left back to S.Korea we talked about filing for a K1 visa and move a few months down the road~ 


I submitted a K1 packet for my fiance to immigration back on November 29th to the Dallas lock-box and I never heard anything, So I called sometime in January and it seems the case was accepted for NOA1 on December 3rd, it just seems that my unit loved to send mail back to the sender quite often.


Well we are here almost in June and have yet to receive any updates on our case at all! and it seems that some people have had there cases accepted even after mailing a month after me.


The base I am stationed at (Fort Hood) has this monthly meeting from USCIS where people applying for immigration and visa's can have a One on One with an USCIS representative..


After waiting my number was finally called and I got to talk to the USCIS Rep. I asked him a few questions and I mentioned that it has been 6 months going onto 7 since I filled for K1 and we have not heard a single thing..and he said the most boggling thing that made sense..


He suggested have her come over on an ESTA and get married.


I then asked what about the 30/60/90 rule, and he went on to tell me not to worry about it

"You could get married Day her feet touch ground and apply for green card same day"


I inquired about what if immigration ends up finding out and try to send her back form which he told me that


"Immigration hardly messes with military, if she was to land and marry some Joe whom worked at a McDonalds, right away then they would think something is up"




So, what I am asking VJ has anyone whom already applied for a K1 went ahead and just got married on an ESTA?

arrowEarly walk-in biometric attempt

My scheduled biometric appointment is on May 29th. Yesterday on the 15th, I attempted to have my fingerprint taken. So I did a walk-in at the local support office. They rejected me without much hesitation, first by saying they can't do it after 3:30 pm. It was 3:50pm at the time. Then they asked me why I wanna do it so early. I said: "well I thought it's also okay and possible to do a walk-in" Then I was told to only come at time as specified on the notice.  FAILED ATTEMPT... Unfortunately I now have to wait another 2 weeks.
