Our interview has not been scheduled yet (got our NOA2 on Feb 4th) but I am searching for any cheap and good hotel that is close to the US Consulate in Almaty, Kazakhstan (or easy to get a drive to), as I am now making a spreadsheet with all estimated expenses. I will need to stay at a hotel when I travel to Almaty for my K1 visa interview. I have looked up some hotels on the internet myself, however, if you happen to have any useful info I would be grateful if you could share it.
Our I129F petition has been approved. Thanks God! We received our NOA2 on February 4th. The approval notice states that our petition has been approved and forwarded to the listed consulate. Is it normal that the petition is forwarded to the consulate and not to the National Visa Center (NVC) first?
Woke up in the middle of the night with a cold sweat. That's when I realized I may have made a mistake on my husband's AOS application that I had sent in the other day. I had mailed in two separate checks: one for the application and one for the biometrics fee. The application check was a $985 cashiers check through my bank while the $85 biometrics fee I paid through a CVS money order. [i]Crap.[/i] I, for whatever reason, forgot that the checks/money orders had to be through banks or government institutions.
...To make things worse, I just looked at the USPS # I had for the parcel and it says:

I would like to ask you about three year rule/citizenship via marriage.
In 2005, I married my wife who is US citizen and in 2008 I received my Green Card.
From 2005 to 2010 we lived overseas as my wife and I worked with UN in different countries, however once a year we entered US to visit my wife’s parents. This gave me a right to keep my Green Card while living out of US.
In June 18, 2010, I came to US and lived there until Aug 1st, 2011 (1 year and 44 days).
I heard that in order to apply for citizenship I have to live in US at least 6 months +1 day per year, during 3 years.
My question is that will I be eligible to apply for citizenship if I return to US in 2012 and live in US for another 6 months +1 day, given the fact that I live in US from June 18th, 2010 to Aug 1st, 2011?
Hello,please help me out here. I got my Cr1 visa 03Dec2008 and it says that it will expire 02Jun2009. It also says "upon endorsement serves as temporary I-551 evidencing permanent resident for 1 year" (which i have no clue what that means). I have been married to a US citizen for almost 2 years (april20th 2007). But we were living overseas the whole time. And i just got back to the States 4 days ago. And i know that i have to apply to remove the Conditions of my residence. But i dont know WHEN am i suppose to send the form? I dont want to send it too eary or too late. So could you please help me out here.
