  1. K-1 question

    Just to add, it's beneficial for me to gain US Citizenship as I can travel to more countries without applying for a visa. I Also, it would be nice to have the same citizenship as my spouse. I remember traveling in Asia and we have to use different immigration lanes since she's a USC and I'm not.
  2. Only answer the question if it's asked. Since it is legal both in US and in your country, then there shouldn't be any problem. Do not volunteer information. If you are asked then answer truthfully.
  3. I know a friend who is a Pharmacy Tech but later on moved on to being an insurance agent as the pay was a little bit more than minimum wage but not really livable wage. It might be a tedious process to become a RN here but it will definitely be worth the try. Start as a nursing care partner while waiting to be ready for the NCLEX. It's not gonna be easy but it will be monetarily rewarding in the long run.
  4. How soon did you find your first job?

    I didn't start looking for a job until after a year from my arrival. It took me 2 weeks to get a job. I was probably just at the right place at the right time. I went to a job fair. I'm making $35 an hour. My advise is to update your resume to the US Format (no picture, religion, etc. that you'd commonly see in our version of resume) and just keep trying. Go to job fairs and network.
  5. Yey for your long overdue Bio Appt!

  7. Menstruation During Medical

    It does depend on the doctor doing the physical examination. Some are thorough, some are not. Although I did have to only wear the hospital gown while the doctor did her physical exam and visual exam of my private part. I had to postpone my medical for a week too as I got my period the day before the medical exam.
  8. Hopefully, you're one of those people that doesn't need to get their biometrics done. I hope an actual person gets a hold of your case soon. And yes indeed, these uninformative automated emails can be annoying.
  9. Refused???

    So sorry to hear about this. Hope this time, everything will work out quick for you and your family.
  10. Medical examination fear

    For the physical exam, it was in the doctor's room. I had a female doctor and she asked me take off everything and put on a patient gown. I laid down on the examination table and she listened to my heartbeat and lungs. She then proceeded to tap my stomach, feel the lymph nodes on my neck, and did a breast examination. It all went quickly, less than 2 minutes. Nothing to be too nervous about.
  11. This situation will fall under "Name Change during Naturalization". Please refer to this thread:
  12. Last food you ate?

    Egg foo young & Rice
  13. Yes this whole process is unnerving at times, but try to stay calm. All they need from you are proof that you guys live in the same address. I suggest when you make photocopies of both your IDs that you do it on the same page.
  14. We did change our address before filing for our I-751. I gave them copies of our ID's containing the old address & our new ID with our new address. The old lease and new lease for your apartment should be a good proof that you have moved apartments. As long as your addresses match up, I think there's no need to worry.
  15. I went to get my medical without any vaccination records. I was asked if I had the measles and if I had a scar from it (which I have). I was given a tetanus shot, pertussis shot & meningococcal b booster shot. I was 24 at that time.
