arrowB2 for my in laws in Thailand

My wife and I are thinking about having my mother and father in law visit us in the US this time. We would like them to stay for 3 months. What should we apply for? B1 or B2?


Also, I have a question about evidence of ties in their country. My mother in law has all her land on her name, but my father in law is not on any of the papers (talk about trust). They have been married for 37 years. My mother in law should be well covered, right? But, could this affect my father in law evidence of ties? 


Thanks for the help on this one.


PS: I am a USC and my wife has a 10 year green card if that makes a difference.

We had our marriage-based adjustment of status interview on August 20, 2014 and we felt confident it went really well.  Earlier today our marriage-based adjustment of status was updated to say the card was in production so it sounded like we were approved.  A few hours the status was updated again to read the following:


Card/ Document Production: On August 29, 2014, we ordered production of your new card. Please allow 30 days for your card to be mailed to you. If we need something from you we will contact you. If you move before you receive the card, call customer service at 1-800-375-5283. This step applies to applications that result in an applicant receiving a card (such as a "green card") or other document (such as a naturalization certificate, employment authorization document, travel document, or advance parole). Applications will be in this step from the time the order to produce the card/document is given until the card/document is produced and mailed to the applicant. You can expect to receive your card/document within 30 days of the approval of your application. If you do not receive your document, please contact our National Customer Service Center at 1-800-375-5283.


A few hours later our status was updated to read the following:


On August 29, 2014, we mailed you a notice that we had registered this customer's new permanent resident status. Please follow any instructions on the notice. Your new permanent resident card should be mailed within 60 days following this registration or after you complete any ADIT processing referred to in the welcome notice, whichever is later. If you move before receiving your card, please call our customer service center at 1-800-375-5283.

During this step the formal decision (approved/denied) is written and the decision notice is mailed and/or emailed to the applicant/petitioner. You can use our current processing time to gauge when you can expect to receive a final decision.


The I-130 status is still showing as initial review.  Can someone explain what this means?  Is the green card approved?

I feel fortunate. I walked into the USCIS field office in Bangkok June 19th, filled 3 I-130's for my family. August 20th our IR-1& IR-2 visas were issued. Visas in hand August 23. Not to suggest those two months were not filled with anxiety and stress. Relative to what I read on this forum we are very fortunate. Bought plane tickets today we fly out September 10

Best of luck to all of those still in process. And thanks to those of you that supported me and clarified my misunderstandings with consular section.

Hi there,


I really need help!!!!!! I'm a US citizen who live in Thailand for the past 9 mths. I don't earn enough income to sponsor my husband. I couldn't find a co-sponsor. We plan to apply for CR1 DCF.


I want to use my Assets to sponsor him. How much do I need to show? (Some people say 3x, some say 5x. Do they require 5x in Thailand?) Has anyone experienced using Assets as Affidavit of support filing with the USCIS in Bangkok for CR1? Any advice would be much appreciated!!!!!

Ok, so far, I'm just looking for a general idea of what date NVC is actually on.  Last I checked, they received my documents for the Visa application (DS-260) on July 10.  Initially, they told me 2-4 weeks to review.  I called at 4 weeks, they told me 6 weeks.  Then I got a notice saying they were backlogged and there was a 60 day wait.  I called at 6 weeks now for the hell of it, and I asked specifically when I should receive an answer, and 2 separate times, I was told, By September 10...  60 Days...  What the hell is going on?  I asked them, "3 month wait, correct?", and got yelled at that it was 60 days, not business days.  Both times this happened.  Extremely rude.  Before I could ask any other info, they would always yell out, "NO, Sir...".  Irritated the absolute hell out of me.  I never got any rude people from NVC before until yesterday, and today when I called.  I was simply trying to ask what dates, if any knowledge, they were currently working on, so I had SOME idea how close.  Anyone here that sent NVC their documents for a CR-1, and they recieved them before July 10 get the notice that it was approved yet?  Very frustrating.  2 more weeks I guess...  And this last process is absolutely killing my wife...  And I am being literal, she is starting to get bouts of depression, and starting to worry me.  We just want this process over with...  It's agonizing!
