arrowK2 letter to permanently relocate... Notarised/Apostille
February 6, 2016, 4:06 am Last comment by UKTOBK

I am looking for a bit of clarity on the letter I have had drawn up and signed by my sons father giving permission to permanently relocate my son to the USA it has been Notarised by a Notary Public as I was advised just a solicitor signature would not be adequate.

The notary highlighted that I may need a further Apostille stamp which is done by the foreign office to authenticate the letter .... I wondered if anyone has gone through this experience or knows if I need this or not? There is a part of me that thinks maybe I should just do it anyway as it can't do any harm, the other penny pinching part of me says it may be a waste of money?!

I'm a January filer for the K1 and I'm located in the UK!

Thanks in advance!

Hi folks,

Not sure if I'm in the right topic but I was wondering if anyone could help. I am currently waiting for the removal of my green card restrictions (K1 visa) and have a trip planned to the UK in April. Does anyone know if it is ok to travel whilst these restrictions are waiting to be lifted? If so, are there any steps to take to make this easier when checking in at the airport with security / customs etc?
Any advice and info would be greatly appreciated.

arrowincorrect information on NVC wiki about taxes?

Hello there.
My wife is just filing her 2015 returns as married seperate. On the NVC wiki, it says:

"Filing MFS (married filing separate) will probably be the easiest for most people as it doesn't require any extra documents from the foreign spouse, nor does it require their signature. On the tax return, where it asks for the spouse's SSN, you would put 'NRA' for Non-Resident Alien. Continue filling out the rest of the return as normal. That is all you have to do."

However on the IRS website,it says we must apply for a tax code instead of a social security number...

"If your spouse is a nonresident alien and you file a joint or separate return, your spouse must have either a Social Security Number (SSN) or an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). To get an SSN for your spouse, apply at a social security office or U.S. consulate. You must complete Form SS-5. You must also provide original or certified copies of documents to verify your spouse's age, identity, and citizenship. If your spouse is not eligible to get an SSN, he or she can file Form W-7 with the IRS to apply for an ITIN. Refer to Taxpayer Identification Numbers (TIN) for more information."


Can anyone shed some light on this?

arrowWill updating a typo delay the NOA2

Hi Everyone,


My fiancé is an American citizen but was born in Peru, so her birth certificate (like most places in the world) followed the dd/mm/yyyy format as opposed to the American mm/dd/yyyy format.


We got out NOA1 on January 5th but we noticed they had made a mistake with her birth date. They either read her birth certificate the wrong way around so they had the month and took that as the day and vice versa, or it was a general typo.


After she contacted them, we received a notice to say that this had been corrected and it was dated 27 January.


I was wondering if anyone has any experience of when something had to be updated on their file, and whether that affected the their time line?


As it stands, the estimate for NOA2 from the CVC is sometime around 15th February so I just wanted to know if I have to temper my expectations!

arrowDangerous driving incident on record

Hi everyone,


Whilst I realise that a forum isn't the place for legal advice, I think I'm looking for a little moral support regarding my case and upcoming interview.


Applying for a CR-1 visa in the UK, my spouse is in the USA. Everything has gone really well so far, and our next step is awaiting an interview date. Having done some reading around the net and on this and other forums though, I've managed to get myself into a bit of a lather.


I have a DD10 (dangerous driving) conviction on my record from 1999, when I was 18. After reading about crimes of moral turpitude etc, I'm worried that this might have a very serious negative effect on my application. I had been doing twice the speed limit, and hit a pedestrian (who was injured, but subsequently ok). I was arrested, the case went to magistrates court, and I was banned from driving for a couple of years and did 140hrs community service. There are no other criminal convictions in the 16+ years since.


What are people's thoughts on how this will play out? It's such a long time ago, for me honestly a lifetime ago, I was young and immature, and I've regretted the incident ever since. To have it trawled up and potentially stop my dream move to live with my wife in the US has actually made me very upset.


Any experience or suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated.
