Hi everyone! I want to share with all of you a nightmare that I have been experiencing since I got married. The purpose of sharing this is to hope that someone can throw some light on my situation and help me make a good decision.

Last December I came to U.S to spend Christmas with some friends in Missouri. I had an application installed on my phone named Clover. On the same month an attractive, polite and nice gentlemen sent me a message. He was from, Arkansas. Everything seemed to be perfect. Then we decided to have our first date. He flew to St. Louis. I traveled to St. Louis to spend the weekend with him there. He asked if I liked him, if I would return with him to Arkansas to stay there for a week due to he was going to be on holiday. I couldn't believe that finally and apparently I found my soulmate...

I'll resume it so no one is going to get bored.

After everything we lived together during my stay, he asked me to not live the country. At airport when I was returning to St. Louis he asked me to marry him. I said it was quite early. Then he asked if would I come back to stay with him before I departed to Spain and do it from Memphis. I accepted that. I was very comfortable with him and his environment and I decided to spend mine 90 days visa period with him. He asked me again to stay and to consider about marrying him, this way we could build a life together and so forth...

I decided to stay with him, but first we had to establish the steps to be done after that choice. One of them were about my financial situation due to I was not going to be able to work for awhile. He told me that in the meantime he would take care of everything.

We got married. We filed all the forms, etc. after that, strange things started happening. Some personal effects were stolen, like clothes, iPad, iPhone, 2,000.00 from a suitcase that was forced and the pad lock broken... not everything happened at the same day. I didn't know that he had problems with alcohol. He had a device on his car that before moving it, he had to blow into it to determine if he could drive or not. Every time that he was inebriated, he was trying to argue or fight with me. First time he attacked me; after that when he was inebriated I was avoiding any kind of dialogue to prevent arguments. However he started humiliating me and saying that I couldn't do anything because I was an illegal immigrant and he was threatening me if I reported it. He stopped buying food and essential needs to the house. There was time that I was starving. I didn't want to have sex with him, because of the way he was treating me, but in some instances he tried to force me. He deactivated my phone line to prevent me of receiving advices from family and friends. I didn't realize that little by little I was falling into depression and getting unable to react. He thought that I had a lot of money because I had a very good job in Europe , carrying out medical procedures as a nurse. Also will be shown websites supporting me as a good professional. I use to travel to many countries to give presentations in congresses and training courses. But now I feel like a loser and incapacitated after this horrible experience. Last argument he destroyed the luggage compartment of my car by hitting the back of his truck into mine. That day I was going to leave the house, but I couldn't because my car had to be fixed first. His insurance repaired everything. Then eventually and being encouraged by my best friend from Madrid, I left the house. I have a clean background and no criminal records anywhere. I also have my religion and I have served a mission long time ago as a Mormon missionary for two years.

I'm still in Arkansas, but I know that soon I'm going to receive the notification for the interview with the USCIS and I don't know what to do.

Thanks in advance to anyone for paying attention to my story.

Last December I came to U.S to spend Christmas with some friends in Columbia, Missouri. I had an application installed on my phone named Clover. On the same month an attractive, polite and nice gentlemen sent me a message. He was from Jonesboro, Arkansas. Everything seemed to be perfect. Then we decided to have our first date. He flew from Jonesboro to St. Louis. I traveled from Columbia to St. Louis to spend the weekend with him there. He asked if I liked him, if I would return with him to Jonesboro to stay there for a week due to he was going to be on holiday. I couldn't believe that finally and apparently I found my soulmate...

AP when trying to visit my girlfriend in USA

Hi everyone,

I'm a Spanish citizen who met an American girl in Madrid (Spain) two years ago. We have been together since then and about 6 months ago her family insisted in meeting me, so I applied for an ESTA. It was accepted at the very moment, so I bought my plane ticket and two weeks after, when I just decided to have a peek (just in case), they changed the situation and rejected it! :(

So the only option was to apply to a tourist visa (B1/B2), thing that I did in London because at that moment I was working as an Architect in England. Well, I took my interview, was honest all the way through and took all kind of papers that they kept. At the end, they gave me the 221g form and put me through administrative processing.

That was on the 27th March. I kept waiting, and checked the online status almost everyday. On 27th April, just one month after, they checked the case again, but since then nobody has looked at the case at all. I keep waiting and I've been for 5 months now. I called on 30th June, because you have the right to call 60 days after AP starts. A quite arrogant woman answered telling me to send an email. I sent the email and didn't receive any answer at all.

As the last chance, my girlfriend's dad talked to an attorney who said that we should call again and ask If the part holding the case is the European Union o the USA, because according to him in many cases the EU holds cases (it doesn't make sense to me, but anyway). I called today again and they told me to send an email. After insist that I sent an email and they never answered, they gave me a different email address, so I emailed today as well.

This seems like a maze, and it's quite annoying, first because they have never told me the reason why I'm through AP, and secondly because I have never done anything illegal. No criminal record, not even a speeding ticket: nothing.

I'm most than thankful if someone decides to answer. Just want some feedback, maybe read some of your cases, everything that could help me get through all this and the tension they're putting on my relationship.

Thanks all.

Hi guys, so I got an RFE because my birth certificate is not translated (actually it's in like 7 or 8 different languages, but I guess they didn't like it), so I have to translate it, anyone can give me ideas? Once I saw someone saying that there was a company which you would send the document online and they'd send it home for you (obviously after paying). I appreciate your help!

Interview without sending the documents

Hello guys how you doing?

So the other day we received a letter from the embassy (Madrid, Spain) to send them some documents (DS-160, Birth certificate, police records, etc) before we set an appointment. According to the person that is helping me, this is very weird because you usually fill the appointment and bring with you the documents that they need. To make a long story short we set the interview for August 31st. We have every document ready but we haven't send it to the consulate. Should I send a copy of every document and keep the original in case they don't make it on time? Should I send the original and keep the copies for the interview? Will the consulate cancel my appointment?

Thank you for your time let me know if you can help me.
