Hi, I recently got my Green card and need to move to USA as a resident. However, I also just got an offer to do a PhD at a British university. This means I need to be in UK for 11 months of the year. I know I need to reside in USA for over 6 months per year to maintain my Green card, but are there exceptions if one is studying PhD in another country? The PhD lasts 3 years. I think I only get 2 or 3 weeks vacation per year.

Thank you

arrowIR-1 visa and minor misdemeanor assult charge

Quick summary of the situation....


I applied for my wife's IR-1 visa about 2 weeks ago (in Seoul, Korea). Last week my wife (foreigner) was being screamed at by someone at work and she grabbed the person's arm. The person called the police for assault. She met with the police and in about 2 weeks a judge will decide if this was assault. There is a very good chance the judge will dismiss this charge (the girl just wants money) but in the event that she is convicted of even the most simple assault (possibly considered a misdemeanor, not sure how the South Korean legal terms translate into American standards) will this result in her visa being denied???


I'd greatly appreciate any info because if she is denied a visa I can't even imagine how much of a disaster it will be for us.

I am not sure if this is the right forum to ask this question.


Does anybody have an experience with N-565 (Replacement of citizenship/naturalization)?


How long does it take to actually receive the certificate after approval?


I guess I just want to know your experience of applying for N-565 in general.

About a month ago  my wife and I submitted the DS-260, I-864 and immigrant visa fees to the NVC, and have been waiting for the response to schedule an interview.


My wife (the beneficiary) will be moving to a new address near her current apartment Korea next week and I wanted to confirm whether it is necessary, and how to change her address at the NVC?


This thread here suggests I should email the NVC with the new information  http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/417143-changing-address-at-nvc-stage/


Has anybody gone through this and have any info besides or differing from what is described?


Thanks for your help

Just got my packet 3 and I am wondering how much I need to take to the embassy on the day of the interview? I've read 325 and then the 165 after issuance for the green card paid online? Also when I went on the website ustraveldocs to book the appt does it matter if its in her name or my name since we will both be going?
