arrowNo Postal Service Where We Live

Just curious how people deal with the inability to receive snail mail while going through this process?  Where I live we don't have postal service.  We can send packages via UPS but there is no reliable way to receive mail.  (We do have mail forwarding services that take mail shipped to Miami and send it down here for pickup but they lose quite a bit of mail or it is delayed for weeks or months).


I presume a lot can be done via email these days?

arrowTransfer of file from NVC to local embassy and creating an online account

Well, after a rather long process, we got the emails on November 17 that NVC has finally finished the pre-processing for my parents and their files are being sent to the embassy in Trinidad. Their interview has been set for November 12.


Now, according to the local instructions, my parents have to go online, and create an account to sign up for the courier service for their passports.  Unfortunately, they are not in the system and their appointment isn't showing up. I'm guessing that it's simply too soon to do this but my question is, for those of you who had to do this, how long from getting that email from NVC do you have to wait in order to be able to create an account with the local embassy. Or.. how long does it take for the embassy to receive the file?





p.s. I've also posted this in the IR-5 thread, but I think folks are on vacation this week, lol.

arrowApplying for K-1 after ban

Due to a series of unfortunate events my fiancé became out of status while he was in the US studying at university on an F-1 visa.  Sadly it was a related to him switching schools and although he was enrolled full time throughout his stay they claimed he was out of status because the paperwork for the school transfer was done incorrectly.  The decision couldn't even be appealed.  He was ordered to leave the country immediately AND they considered him as having overstayed from the original date of his transfer which was over a year.... thus he has a 10-year ban!!!  It was so sad and so unfair but we got our affairs in order and left the US just over 9 years ago.  Now that it's time to start the process of returning to the States I've contacted a lawyer to handle everything.  I'm taking no chances so I'm willing to pay the bucks to get it done right.  Based on everything I've read, we can't even apply until the ban is over in Sept 2015.  According to my lawyer that's not quite true.  She insists that we can apply earlier and we just need to time it such that the K-1 visa is issued after the ban expires.  Thus she feels we could start the process as early as 6 months before.  


Anyone have any opinions on this?

Hi All!


I was wanting to know if what I sent in was enough as proof of a relationship.  In the packet I included a statement of how we met and have maintained contact over the past three years as well as about 10 pictures of us over our last three years of dating.  I also sent in a few letters that we have sent each other and copies of plane tickets from 5 visits that we have had.


Do you guys think that is enough proof?

What happens after getting married? How long does it usually take to get your social security number and a work visa? My fiancé and I intend on getting our own apartment after getting married and it would kind of suck if he's the only one paying everything for a while. 

Oh.. and how does getting a car work? Can i buy it with my foreign license?
