On april 14,2014 I received a hard copy of NOA2 for CR-1 I-130.


My wife is still in Korea but the letter said,


"The above petition has been approved. The petition indicates that the person for whom you are petitioning is in the United States and will apply for adjectment of status...


bla bla..

If the persone for whom you are petitioning decides to apply for an immigrant visa outside the US based on this petition, the petitioner should file form I824.




on Apri 16th, I received the case update letter that said


"we shipped this approved or re-affirmed case to the Department of State for visa processing. For more information, please contact them directly.

For approved applications/petitions, post-decision activity may include USCIS sending notification of the approved application/petition to the National Visa Center or the Department of State.  For denied applications/petitions, post-decision activity may include the processing of an appeal and/or motions to reopen or reconsider and revocations."



What is going on with my approved i-130?????

I started the K1 process with a lawyer who has turned out to be a bigger pain than it would have been doing this all myself. When doing things for the first time I figured it would be better to pay for help, but boy was I wrong. I have a few questions.


On the I129 form at the end there is a section for the lawyer to sign saying that I agree to let the firm handle correspondence for these forms. Does this mean that I will need to use the lawyer all the way through the visa process? I was hoping that after my fiance receives confirmation of her interview that we could just refuse to pay the rest of the lawyer of the fees that are due before we start the interview process and do it ourselves. Can this be done cleanly or can this lawyer make problems for me after the paperwork is filed if she so desires? Does she have any control over the process when the papers are filed?


Question #2: How can I check to make sure that my papers have actually been received by the USCIS??


Thanks in advance!

arrowI-130 Question 19 and 20

I'm filling out the I-130 and I'm really confused on questions #19 and #20. My husband and I are living in South Korea (he's Iraqi and I'm American). On question #19 it asks for his address abroad I put our apartment's address in Korea. Then question 20 asks for the address abroad to be written in his native language, Arabic. However, it doesn't make sense to write a Korean address in Arabic. So, should #19 be his parent's address in Iraq and then again in Arabic for #20. Or should it be written in Korean... Oh, I'm so confused. I hope the previous bit makes sense. 

Thank you in advance for helping me! :D

arrowHusband is getting a drivers license again ~ Will he have to retake the test?

My husband got his drivers license when he first came to Oregon, but it expired with his Visa in fall (I believe it was in late September but I don't remember exactly).


He got his employment authorization card at the end of March and now wants to get another driver's license. 


Will he have to re-take the written test? I've searched and searched the Oregon DMV site and cannot find a clear answer. I saw that in another state, a person does not need to take the test again as long as they've passed the test within the last two years - does anyone know if this rule is common in America? Has any one else had to get their license for a second time in a short period? And if so, what was your experience?



Thank you so much for your help :) You guys are always wonderful (L)  (L)  (L)
