Hi all I am getting ready to submit everything as soon as the medical is done next week.  I have gathered everything that I think I need and I wrote this cover letter.

 

Can some of the experts on here review my cover letter to see if I missed something or added something incorrectly? 

 

Thank you.

 

John

Hi my wife and I got married a few days ago. We are currently working on her paperwork for adjustment as well as 765, 131, etc.

1. I had specifically asked the clerk when we got married about changing her name and was told that it had to be in her legal maiden name. 
2. There was no space on the license to put a changed married name.
3. I read in a lot of places that all I could use my last name on the forms but put down her maiden name as a "other names used" BUT I dont see this on the form.
4. Can we change her first name too?

For example:

My Name: John White
Her Name (Passport): Maritza Rodriguez, but she goes by Mary
Marriage License: John White and Maritza Rodriguez


Can we change the name at the same time to be: Mary White?? or do I have to use Maritza White?


Thanks in advance.

Hey VJers, 

 

I was assembling my packet to take to the interview coming up in roughly 2 weeks. One of the checklist says, "A completed Affidavit(s) of Support (Form I-864) with all required evidence, including the following, for each of your sponsors (unless already submitted): Federal income tax returns, letters from each current employer verifying current rate of pay, evidence of your sponsor's citizenship status." 

 

I'm the applicant, and my husband is the USC. I already submitted an I-864. I just wanted to take another copy of what I submitted (I-864 and tax transcripts of years 2013, 2014, and 2015 from my husband) from my original application in case the interviewing officer asks for it.

 

I abridged some of the wording of the checklist notice, but here's my question. If I didn't submit a letter from my husband's current employer about his employment status and details in the original submission, is it OK to not take it to the interview as well? Is this something I shouldn't take my chances on and ask my husband to get a letter ASAP?

arrowAOS RFE (I-864) Questions!

Hi, rather than worrying my us citizen wife, I decided to join VJ to get some advice. My timeline is updated but I'll just reiterate.

So we filed on our own without an attorney in July 16
July 15- USCIS received the concurrent filing (AOS family based-spouse)
late July-early August - NOA1 and biometric done
Aug 20 - Request for Initial Evidence was mailed
Oct 21 - RFE response sent
Oct 31 - status changed to RFE response received

I haven't had any updates so far. I heard most of people it changes to RFE review soon after and wait a long time when it is being reviewed. Mine didn't even change for a month from RFE received and still says RFE received.

Just a bit of background info: I was a f-1 visa holder, met my wife in Feb '15, got married in sept '15. Filed almost a year later because she didn't make enough income and it took a while till her parents to accept me but her parents didn't qualify for the I-864 either. Had my high school buddy do it but got a RFE cause his last year return wasn't enough and he just started a new job this January. Used my moms friend who lives here in Seattle and despite she was a business owner she filed taxes all three years that exceed 120k every year. Been waiting for that RFE to go through.

Sorry if I am being a baby here. I didn't hire a lawyer and I am just a bit more anxious cause I don't know what to expect.

Is it normal to wait on RFE response received status? I feel like I am being denied or something. Any advice is welcome!!
Oh I already received the combo card by the way if that means anything

If someone who is in the CR1 process visits the country on VWP with a return ticket of exactly 90 days later, with legitimate intention to not change status during the visit, would this be a problem?
