Hi All. My 9089 was filed on 2/10 by my employers attorney. Just wondering how long applications were currently taking to be approved. Thanks.

arrowEAD Renewal from K1?

Hello all, once again I require some guidance on what to do here...


My Employment Authorization Card (i-766) expires May 29th of this year.  I initially applied for it at the same time as my adjustment of status from entering with a K1 fiancee visa.  That AOS is still ongoing, and after 8 months of silence I just received a notice in the mail requesting some further information, so it won't be wrapping up any time soon.  I obviously need to renew my work permit, and my job is chasing me up for updates so they can cover themselves.


However, I'm reading the instructions of form i-765 (which I believe is what I'm filing once again?) and I see this which worries me:



6. Family-Based Nonimmigrant Categories


1. K-1 Nonimmigrant Fiancee of US Citizen or K-1 Dependant --(a)(6) File form I-765 if you are filing within 90 days from the date of entry.  This EAD cannot be renewed.



Is there another form I'm supposed to issue for a renewal in this case?  Do I disregard this line because of the length of time my AOS has taken?  And will there be an additional cost to renew even though I am still in the process of applying for AOS?


Thanks once again for all the assistance!

Quick summary of our story.. Met online in 2004 and stayed friends for 8 years. Decided we wanted to begin a relationship. Stayed together for a year when he came to visit me, we were together in person for two months when we decided we wanted to get married. Got married and two months later he went back to the UK to work to save up money so we could file for an adjustment of status. I found out I was pregnant . He tried to come home for Christmas but his visa was expired. So we decided to apply for the cr1 while he was still there. Was told that it would be hard to visit each other without proof of him being able to return to UK. So he stayed there during this entire process. It's been 18 months since I have seen him. Does us getting married after 2 months throw up red flags even though we've known each other for 8 years prior? We've been together 2.5 years now and have a beautiful daughter. I'm just so scared that something will go wrong and we won't be able to be a family.

arrowTaxes and resident for tax purposes

Just figured out my hubby had done the math wrong for his time that he's been in the US for the last 3 years, and turns out he DOES meet the substantial presence test. Since he meets that criteria, he's already considered a resident correct? So we don't have to send a declaration/statement in like if he was technically a non resident if he didn't meet that test, correct?

arrowJoint I-751 application pending. Living apart and we both want a divorce. Do I need an attorney, refile or divorce waiver?

I'm in a very messy situation. I moved from the UK to the US, just over 2 and a half years ago. My marriage has been very rocky throughout this time and we've had marriage couselling in the past. Last year in October, my husband and I filed jointly for my I-751 form. Things weren't great back then but they weren't as bad either. We both agreed that we needed to go couseling again. Soon after I filed my joint petition, my husband decided to book another trip to Thailand (he's been 27 times before) and also went during the first year of our marriage and keeps in touch with his exes he met over there. He refuses to take a trip there together. Besides that, we have so many other marriage issues that have torn our marriage apart. After huge blowouts and constant fighting, I felt like I had no choice but to leave. He filed for divorce but we held back, believing that we could still make this work. We live 5 minutes apart from each other and still see each other. I arranged counselling sessions but even while we've been living apart, our arguments got worse and the trust is completely destroyed. I can't see a future with him anymore :(


If we go through with the divorce, what do I do? I've been getting conflicting answers.


My joint I-751 is pending but we live apart now. I've changed my address online with USCIS. I also spoke to an attorney that told me I'd have to refile a new I-751 and get my biometrics and start the process from the beginning. I've also been told that I just need to send a letter requesting a waiver when my divorce is final/pending? I'm so confused and wondering if it's best to just hire an immigration attorney. Problem is, costs are very high.
