arrowGot a problem with my fiance's deployment

Hi everyone.

So my fiance is in army and stationed in Texas while i'm in Korea. And he was supposed to get deployed for Kuwait in the end of June.

We filed our petition in April and got NOA1 in 14th April. Our original plan was that he prepare all the papers and documents needed before he leaves and I proceed whole thing while he's gone. And i was gonna visit him early June to spend the vacation with him.

I've just found a little mistake on my G-325a and i'm sure we'll get RFE. I've seen many cases of who got RFE and think it's not a huge deal.

But the problem is my fiance told me he's moved to another company so he might get to leave very soon like in couple of weeks and he's not sure if he can take vacation which he filed to current company.

What if i got RFE of our petition while he's gone, what can i do? Are all documenta always sent by the petitioner and his signature will be needed?

I heard there is a time limit to send the new documents after you get RFE. Can I extend the deadline?

I've already booked the flight tickets. And he's not sure anything yet but want to be prepare for the worst scenario.

Please help. Thank you

I was looking over the I-130 form, I know it may be a stupid question, but do I need to enter my permanent US address or the current address I am living at in Korea? I will be filing DCF May 31. 

Thanks in advance!

arrow(Please help) Not in the system after filing Fee waiver and 751

I am so worried and nervous after talking to the USCIS call center agent.


I submitted I 751 (To remove condition on my green card) and 912 (To waive the fee) on April 6th.


My 2year temporary green card expired on April 18th.


I haven't heard back from USCIS and I called them today because it has been a month to check on my status.


They said that they can't find anything about my case on the system. There is nothing on the system.


Is it possible that the mail got lost or is it taking longer because I filed for fee waiver (But if so, how come it is not even in the system? Because it is not in the system, I also don't have any receipt number).


I have to go out of the country after a month, and after reading articles about how temporary green card holders can be deported, I am freaking out right now. 


My husband is saying that may be we should talk to a lawyer but I would like to know if any of you had similar experiences as mine before. (How long did it take to receive receipt number from USCIS when you filed fee waiver?)

I received a letter from NVC on March 29, 2016 saying my petition had been sent to the Korean Embassy or Consulate in Seoul. It has already been 5 weeks and Seoul hasn't received it yet. Is this normal? How long does it take to send the file from U.S. to Seoul?
