What if i don't get the recorded marriage certificate back before the 90 day K1 fiance visa expires?
jaysaldi posted a topic in Adjustment of Status (Green Card) from K1 and K3 Family Based Visas,I am getting married next week and just learned that it may take weeks to get the recorded marriage certificate mailed to me. This will put us beyond the 90 days. The officiant says he can take a photo of what he files at the courthouse (is that a file stamped non-recorded marriage certificate or something else)? But I am worried that it won't be sufficient to adjust status.
What should I do?
1. File for AoS before the 90 days expires with the photo of documentation he sends me and possibly/probably get an RFE?
2. Wait beyond the ninety days and file for AoS?
3. File for AoS within and then supplement that filing in a few weeks with a nice copy of the recorded marriage certificate?
Also, after we file for AoS, what paperwork should my fiancee carry with her to prove she is in the country legally?
ThanksWell after waiting for an answer from our RFE response, I got an electronic notification today that our petition has been denied. I'm sure most people who have been denied quickly leave this forum all together but I could really use some advice. I have not yet received the letter, so I have no explanation for exactly why we were denied but I would think it would be safe to say it is related to our RFE. It said the letter would explain the reasons and what our options are but I have read on here that there are NO options after being denied a K1. I guess I'm reaching out to anyone on here that has been through the same thing that could shed some light on where to go from here.
dwheels76 posted a topic in IR-1 / CR-1 Spouse Visa Case Filing and Progress Reports,Welcome to another monthly thread for those going through NVC! This is the one place you should visit if you are filing through the NVC in November 2019!
Please read everything below and refer to it throughout your NVC journey, whether this is your first month at NVC or your third.
Before posting questions, please read the wiki Saylin wrote on the NVC process. Once you're done, read it one or two more times to really understand it ;). Don't forget to also read the official form instructions as well as USCIS and NVC's websites!
Immigrant visa applicants will have to demonstrate that they will be covered by health insurance within thirty days of entering the country or have the financial resources to pay for medical costs. Details below:

I was born in the US and moved to UK when I was 8. I haven't lived in the US for the last 17 years and am starting the DCF process for my wife who is British.
I have lived in the UK and Australia in those 17 years ( 14UK + 2 AU +1 UK current) . I know petitioners don't generally require PCC but is there an exception to that in case you haven't lived in the US for such a long time ?

Hi There! My significant other (sponsor) and I (beneficiary) sent in our I-129F on November 6, 2019. I would like to know if anyone,or anyone that you know, has ever felt the need to cancel their immigration process for any reason. What step were you at when you cancelled and how did you do it? Going through a tough time and I am curious about this just in case.
Visitor Visa B2: Person/Entity Paying for Your Trip 9:41 am today
Read 24 Times
I'm a US citizen and my wife is a Green Card holder. My mother-in-law, who lives in Ukraine, wants to visit us. She's retired and her retirement income is not sufficient to cover her trip, so I'll be paying for her trip to the US.
What documents/proof of finances do I need to provide, if I list myself in the "Person/Entity Paying for Your Trip" field on the DS-160 application?
Thank you for any suggestions.
