  1. Hello: Hoping someone may be able to assist or provide clarity. My wife currently has a approved 10 year green card as of last year. The only thing left is to apply for dual citizenship. If we were to move to her country for say 2-3 years to have a child and she did not apply for dual citizenship, what would happen to her green card? Has anyone moved to their significant others countries before? We would eventually come back to the USA. Is there a form to fill out that allows it? My wife is from Sweden and I am American. Thanks for any assistance! Brian
  2. Thank you all for your time and wonderful insight! Much appreciated!
  3. Hello: My wife in December (2017) successfully removed the conditions and was approved for 10 years. Our next step is to apply for US citizenship as long as her Swedish citizenship is still recognized (which I believe that is the case). The main reason to apply is that we would no longer have any issues if we ever chose to live outside the US at a point in our lives. Can anyone please help with the following questions below: - What is the current time-frame it will take once we submit the forms needed before she were to take the test, etc? She is very busy at work and is worried about studying for the citizenship test. - We live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin so I am not sure if that matters or not in terms of the local immigration office, etc. - Does anyone know the overall costs it will take from start to finish for applying for US citizenship? Thank you all very much in advance for your time and assistance!
  4. Hello Everyone: When my wife and I got married, I told her that someday I would live in her country too for a few years. As I am sure with many people here, she dearly misses her family and friends. I often feel so guilty of the sacrifices she made to come here. She currently has a 10 year green card and is contimplating applying for citizenship and have dual citizenship later this year since we have been married four years. Does anyone know if we can leave the US for a couple years at some point in the future and live in Sweden with no issue or do we have to start the entire green card process over if we came back the US? I was hoping the dual citizenship for her would allow that. Any tips, suggestions, etc is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  5. It was bizarre. Neither the postal office or USCIS would take ownership of losing it. We were caught in the middle without a green card. The USCIS said on their end they sent it. Once it leaves their office it is on the postal office. The post office said it was not their fault and shows it was delievered. I spoke to many individuals and all said we had to repay and go through the process again. There was zero way either would pay. Faulty system at it's core. The best thing is we just received the replacement card last night ending this 19 month wait!
  6. Hello: My wife finally got an update saying her I-90 replacement green card was being produced on Friday, December 1. We have been waiting since February 2017 to receive a I-90 replacement green card and February 2016 since we originally sent in the paperwork before her first card was lost/not received. Given the waiting, we are anxiously awaiting when the USCIS indicates the card will be mailed... We are hoping and praying that we receive the replacement green card this time since overall it has been 19 months total since the first card did not arrive in our mailbox! Does anyone know how long the screen changes to mailed after produced? I have seen anything from 7-14 business days or longer. To make things worse, we are leaving to go to Sweden to visit my wife's family and friends through January 1st for the Holidays. She has a temporary travel stamp to travel for a year so hopefully that will be allowed to come back into the US since we will not be home. What will happen if the green card arrives when we are gone? We already had this trip booked for four months. The best case is it arrives before we leave on December 15. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance, Brian
  7. Hello: We have an update from my email above in May. My wife finally got an update saying the card was being produced on December 1st. We have been waiting since February 2017 to get a I-90 replacement green card . We are anxiously awaiting when the USCIS indicate it was actually mailed... We are hoping and praying that we receive the replacement green card this time since overall it has been 19 months total! Insane. Does anyone know how long the screen changes to mailed after produced? I have seen anything from 7-14 business days or longer. To make things worse, we are leaving to go to Sweden to visit my wife's family and friends through January 1st. She has a temporary year stamp to travel for a year so hopefully that will be allowed to come back into the US since we will not be home.The best case is it arrives before we leave on December 15. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance, Brian
  8. Hey: Thanks for your message and very sorry to hear that you are also experiencing the same situation. We continue too wait. We get texts indicating no status update. We are now waiting six months for the replacement card. Has anyone heard or received a status update? Again, we sent the I-90 in early February. Crazy how long this process takes. Thanks! Brian
  9. Hello Visa Journey Members: I hope everyone is well. It has been a long road to obtain the removal of conditions on my wife's green card. Last April (2016), we submitted the I-751 to remove the conditions for 10 years. We received an update in late November (2016) finally that it was approved and the card was to be delivered. We were ecstatic. Long story short, the card never arrived to our mailbox. Distraught, upset, etc., the USCIS said they could do nothing for us. The postal service could do nothing for us besides giving me a letter indicating it could have been misplaced in another mailbox since we live in a multi unit apartment building. We waited until early February (2017) hoping it would turn up or would be sent back to the USCIS office. It never arrived. We contacted our local congresswoman's office but they were not able to assist and informed us to submit the 1-90 form and payment once again. Obviously, it was greatly disheartening and mind boggling that they do not provide tracking numbers, etc. I would gladly pay $200 to do so but it is not an option nor having it delivered to our local USCIS. We sent in the I-90 in early February (2017), saw shortly after that they cashed the check and my wife had her biometrics screening in early April (2017). For the past month plus, we have not had any updates. Has this occurred to anyone else regarding the I-90 or having it lost/stolen? Do you know roughly when we should expect to receive the replacement card if we filed in February 2017 again for a replacement? It is frustrating since they approved her, indicated everything was sufficient and all is needed is the card! Trying to remain positive in a far too rigged and complex process. Thanks for your time and assistance in advance! Brian
