Public Assistance on I-485 Part 3 Question #2
6:19 am yesterday

Hello all,

I'm applying for green card based on marriage to US citizen. I just have quick question on I-485 Part 3. Question #2 about public assistance. Here is the question.

Have you received public assistance in the United States from any source, including the U.S. Government or any State, county, city, or municipality, or are you likely to receive public assistance in the future?

My wife received Texas WIC benefit last year when she was pregnant. We used it for only one month. The benefit was not helpful so we just quit. According to USCIS, WIC is not considered Public Charge. However, what should I answer on the question since public assistance looks broader concept than public charge. Should I answer Yes and send WIC documents as proof? Or can I answer No since it was related to my wife and child?

I'm so confused.

Pending I-751 (No NOA yet) and traveling abroad
4:12 pm yesterday

Hi all

I filed I-751 on 04/11/17 which is exactly 90 days from my GC expiration on 07/10/17. The delivery was confirmed and I know the person who signed to pick it up is a USCIS employee.

It has been more than 2 weeks and I did not receive anything back yet. The personal check has not been cashed either.

Becoming very concerned because I will be traveling outside the US from 05/16/17. My question is what do I need to do if I don't receive NOA until the travel date?

Obviously I don't have receipt number and can't really track my case or even inquire about this issue over the phone.

Thank you!

Paying I-129f fee from abroad

I'm currently living in South Korea and ready to send in my I-129f packet. I just can't seem to figure out how to get the payment figured into a personal check (I don't have a US account currently) or money order. So, I went to a Western Union because I thought they would give me a paper money order, but they said I would only get a confirmation number; which I could give USCIS to collect the payment. I'm a little afraid of sending the packet off with a number. Would they take that method of payment? Anyone have experience sending the packet and paying from abroad? Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!

Hello everyone,

My wife was issued her IR-1 visa a few weeks ago. We now have until mid August to enter the United States.

We are currently living in South Korea. Our family is trying to plan a family trip before my wife and I head to the United States. Are there any travel restrictions prior to entering the United States under her IR-1 visa? They are planning to travel to somewhere in South East Asia for a week or so in May and we are planning to head to the United States in June. Are there any issues with traveling prior to entering the United States?

I hope my question isn't too confusing.

Thank you for any assistance.

Leaving the USA after CR-1 approval

My wife is Korean and we are currently in the process of getting her CR-1 visa. We just need to do our interview now. She is planning on coming to the USA this summer, whether is be on a tourist visa or the CR-1, if it's approved in time.

My question is: After a CR-1 is approved and given out, are there any restrictions on how long she is allowed to leave the USA before returning? She will have to go home to Korea for up to a few months. Has anyone had experience with this or know if there is a set amount of time a CR-1 holder can leave the country during the first year?

Also, if she is in America on a tourist visa, and her CR-1 is approved while she is there, does she have to leave the country and re-enter? Or would she be okay just staying in the USA?

Any help is appreciated!
