im in so much tension please someone help me with. We had an appointment in feb 26, 2016 from NVC but we cancelled it because we were not ready to go then. so we waiting till nov.9 2016 and rescheduled the appintment on Jan 26, 2017. but I recieved a message saying that the petition has been cancelled since we didn't contact them before 1 year. But we did reschedule the appintment on nov 9, 2016 so that was before completing of 1 year.

Please someone tell me if this happened to someone and also should my husband attend the interview this jan 26, 2017?

on the website it says expiring soon but this is what it writes...

Section 203(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act requires that your registration be canceled and any petition approved on your behalf canceled, if you do not apply for your immigrant visa within one year of being advised to do so.

You were advised of this requirement over 1 year ago, but we have not received a response from you since then. As a result, your application for a visa has been canceled and any petition approved on your behalf has also been canceled.

Your application may be reinstated and any petition revalidated if, within one year, you can establish that your failure to pursue your immigrant visa application was due to circumstances beyond your control. Please provide a written statement to the Embassy or Consulate outlining the circumstances beyond your control and noting that you still wish to pursue this visa petition

thank you

arrowHow long do you need to be employed at a job, to sponsor someone

I changed jobs last year and worked for 4 months in my new job. I just got my W2 from my first and last employer, and my income are sufficient to sponsor someone. I want to sponsor my partner alone without a joint sponsor.

Here's the break down:

Job A - January to August

Job B - August till date.

If I file my taxes now, can I use it to sponsor my partner?

Hi everyone, I hope I am posting in the right forum.

I am in a very bad situation, I came here 2 years ago and I already filed the I-751 but my question is not regarding that. When I came here I started working in peeling potatoes in a restaurant, then delivering news paper and magazines at 3 in the morning for minimum wage. After that I found a job in a warehouse where I was in so much pain in my feet and body from lifting boxes and heavy labor, after few months I was promoted to a supervisor and I got a good pay. I was making good money and everyone was happy with my work. Recently we had a meeting at work and the owner said the company is now acquired by another company and will be closing next month, the new company is the biggest in the East Coast. Once the meeting was over the new CEO and VP called me for their office and asked me if I am interested in going with them, they are moving to Vermont, and their location is three hours away from my house, and that's in a perfect weather. I didn't know what to tell the CEO and VP so I said I will think about it. I told my wife about what happened when I went home and I said I don't mind driving, she told me that she doesn't want me to take the job and if I do then she will file for divorce. Next day I talked to the VP and I said that I can't take the job, he took that as a maneuver from my side, so he offered me a pay raise, a promotion to higher position with an office and to keep my seniority in the company. The reason they want me is this bad is that they took the old company with tons of work and contracts and I am the one who was managing their biggest client daily work flow. They even offered to pay me few thousands of dollars if I am willing to move to VT to help with housing and everything. My wife can't move there because of her kids, she have joint custody with her ex husband and they need to live in 50 mile radius from each other. She told me that I can get any job here and that Dunkin Donuts is always hiring. I don't want to work in such jobs, I really worked hard and made my way up and if I wasn't doing good job I wouldn't be offered such position. My wife said it's either our marriage or the job, I don't see why she is doing that. She said if I really love her then I would take any job even at McDonald's. I don't know what to do, I really love her and tried to talk to her a lot, all pointless. I want to build my career life and make more money instead of going backwards, and that's for both of our sake, not just me as a person. Anyone here was in such situation before?

arrowUAE IR/CR-1 - What's your CC date? What's your interview date?

Hi everyone!

January is almost over and I'd like your assistance again now that NVC is about to start scheduling for interviews. :jest:

If you filed IR/CR-I in UAE, what is your Case Completion date?

When was your interview scheduled? What date is your interview?

The reason I ask, is to compare with our own completion date, to enable me figure out how close our interview is. NVC phone reps won't tell us anything to make us feel better. The wait is painful. Our case completed in September 15th, 2016. I am curious to know what month they are scheduling for now.

Thank you in advance!
