    Hello all I'm a 25 year old guy from South Florida. To make a long story short, I met the love of my life on a year long trip that I ended taking to stay in China. I was born, and bred in the states. Ironically enough , she's from a little Central American country known as El Salvador, we fell in love, and shortly after I ended proposing to her this year. Now I recently got back to the states, and I went back to school to start our future together. I own a 15k truck, and I make around 13$ an hour. I'm currently finishing my first year back at college. I'm sure I don't make the poverty guidelines, so I asked my wealthy aunt, and uncle if they'd sponsor me, and her. They make roughly 100k each, yearly, and they gladly accepted, since they had helped a friend a long time ago bring their spouse. So here's the catch, I've printed the form 129 F, and I'm a little lost as to what to do next, in terms of mailing, what's the address, and what do I include in this form, and what are the chances, that we get approved if we do everything correctly. So if theirs anyone willing to make friends with me who have experience in this, that'd be much obliged. We have no kids, and are just start our futures togethers. Lawyers are waaaaaaaaaay too expensive so any help is appreciated. My gmail is Bryseidon@outlook.com

    Hello everyone.

    For those filing/waiting for ROC, did you send the 1040, the tax transcripts or both?

    If sending the 1040, did you conceal the SS numbers on each page?

    N-400 Online. Evidence section asks for \'additional evidence you want to provide\'

    Hi Guys,

    2 questions about filling for citizenship via -N400 online.

    1. Right at the end of completing the N-400 is the evidence section. You upload scans of your Green card, Marriage cert, childrens Birth Certs, Tax returns etc. Then there is a section that says 'additional evidence you want to provide'. It isnt clear to me what I upload here. I tried to continue without uploading anything but a warning was advised to me to upload as much as possible to help my case.

    Can someone please give me a clear list of when needs to be uploaded here? Thanks!

    2. I am filling my N-400 online. Do I need to upload the Form N-400 too? Or that form is only if you mailing in your application.

    Case FINALLY received - but processed @USCIS Harrisonburg Storage Center?

    I am an American citizen petitioning on behalf of my alien spouse/stepdaughter. Despite the incompetence of RapidVisa having initially mailed it to the WRONG service center (as noted in an earlier thread) - my I-130 is FINALLY being processed. The USPS showed that it was delivered to that incorrect facility (Dallas vs Phoenix) on the 29th of March, 2021.
    Strangely enough - yesterday (Sunday) evening (April 18, 2021) - I received not one but FOUR text messages (identical) saying that my case was received. I was given a receipt number.
    I used the USCIS mobile app and logged in then added the receipt number. The app says it was received on the 29th of March and that I was mailed a receipt notice or acceptance notice. Yesterday was the 18th and no notice received - but as I understand that is not unusual and could take up to 30 days. So far - so good. Furthermore - the app notice states: "It is being processed at our Nebraska Service Center Location".

    Here is where it gets confusing - almost simultaneously I received FOUR identical emails. These state "Your case has been accepted and routed to the USCIS Harrisonburg Storage Center for processing. Within 7-10 days by standard mail you will receive your official Receipt Notice (Form I-797) with your Receipt Number IOEXXXXXXXXXX"
    I know it may be asking a lot - but could anyone design a more confusing system of communicating? I think not...
    In any case - I am hoping for two outcomes. 1) That someone out there can decipher this for me (i.e., which of these two messages likely reflect the real location in real time?) and 2) That someone else who receives similar information can understand that it is either usual or unusual as the facts may eventually show.
    Thanks for any pertinent info.

      Hey I saw your comment on my timeline. I haven't actually moved anything yet except for some clothes I left behind the last time I saw my Fiance. I'm still not entirely sure how I will move everything. However, U-Haul will probably be my go-to once I get my own place to move the big things.

      Hello everyone! I am now in the NVC stage. I got an approved I-130 for my spouse and minor child. I am currently in process of filling out the Affidavit of Support for my husband. I don't have anyone that is willing to co sponsor. I am unsure if my current is enough. My last year's (2020) tax returns gross income is $34k, and current income will be approximately ($33k). I have a household of 3 and just relying on my current income. . I know that the poverty line for a household of 3 is $27,450.Will that be enough to qualify for the income requirements? Please help me out. Thank you!
