    I am married to a US citizen. I recieved my 2 year conditional green card back in November 2016. I filed to remove conditions off the green card in October 2018. So far I have received a letter of extension of 18 months on the green card while my paperwork is being processed.

    When is best for me to apply for citizenship? And how long would it take?

    Calling each other husband and wife in whatsapp chats

    It recently came to my attention that some chats that i submitted to USCIS contained conversations where we called each other husband and wife. All of the instances occur before we even met in person, so it was actually impossible for us to be married. My worry is that an interviewing officer will see this and reject our application even though we are not married and we just occasionally call each other that because it's a term of endearment. My fiances interview is next week and i just want to know the likelihood that some of these instances are caught/flagged by the embassy officer and whether it would be a big problem if they did notice it? In 50 pages of chats submitted its maybe mentioned like 10 times or so. Also does the consular officer or anyone review the documents already submitted beforehand? Are they reading through everything or just making sure all required documents are there.

    Here is our experience this morning...Most questions were asked by the Filipino pre processor. They asked about the denied K-1 and about all the paperwork.

    We offered our police reports and court documents but he said it was up to the CO if he needed those. They took our Cenomar? and thanked us for requesting the Cenomar even though we are married. That is what they wanted to see. He mentioned that some people request a marriage certificate but what they get with the requested Cenomar is a list of all marriages and the disposition of the previous marriage. I ask about that since it has come up. Yes, even though you are married, they want you to request a Cenomar.

    After that they got for fingerprinted.

    The interview was next and all the CO asked was where did we meet and when was the wedding. We were in the interview for about 10 minutes but most of the time was the CO typing and looking at his computer screen. He handed back the original paperwork which really scared us. There was so much silence until he told AJ that the visa would be void if he get married before entering the US and that he needs to register for selective service. There were no questions for the kids and after he told AJ to register for selective service he congratulated us and said our visas are approved so confirm the delivery method and we should have them in 2 to 3 weeks.

    We were really freaked out when they returned the paperwork to us!

    • Vaccination waiver question
      We are in the process of having my fiance immigrate from the Philippines. Assuming we get approval to move ahead in the process, the next step would be the medical review/vaccinations. We would have had vaccinations as a kid, but she has no paperwork for any of it.
      I am not going to get into a debate on pro or anti-vaccinations - I am just wondering if anyone has successfuly requested to not have vaccinations for religious reasons. I heard of one person getting a waiver, but that was well over a decade ago. Is this still a possibility? Did you do this successfully? If yes, how? What is the process?
      Any advice or feedback is appreciated.

    • Divorce and Remarry: Getting to the US Faster on a K-1 Visa?
      Since the timeline for K1 visas appears to be about 4 months faster, would divorcing and remarrying be an option? I certainly don't like that option, but if it saves me 4 months then I might have to think about it. I have not filed anything in the US. Could we just have another ceremony there? Since her ID shows her being married, I am assuming the answer would be no on that one.
