I can continue to do that legally from the US, before my EAD is issued?President Joe Biden will sign a travel ban Monday on most non-U.S. citizens entering the country who were recently in South Africa. He will also reinstate travel restrictions on the entry of non-U.S. citizens from the U.K. and Brazil, where new Covid strains have emerged. The restrictions will also apply to Ireland and much of Europe. Former President Donald Trump had rescinded the restrictions just before Biden took office.Most air passengers coming to the U.S. from abroad, including children from the age of two, will be required to present a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of their trip. The new rules, introduced by the CDC, come into effect Jan. 26. Only certain passengers transiting through the country or coming from places with little testing capacity will be able to enter the country without a negative test.

Determining I-130 Request for Evidence Turnaround Time 3:17 am today
Read 16 Times
In October 2020 I received an RFE notice for information regarding my adopted son, who I am petitioning for with the I-130. I was able to use the USCIS online account to upload the needed documentation. It was received by them on November 3, 2020 and after further inquiry, they have indicated that the information is being reviewed. It has been 4 months now, and I still have not received notification of completion. Is this a long time to wait for RFE turnaround? Is there any way to estimate the time? Anything I can do to make the process speed up? Thanks!
Court ordered name change BEFORE or AFTER submitting I-485? 3:01 am today

Hi, my fiancee and I just got married (she came on a K1) and she changed her surname to my surname legally, via the marriage process.
However, her middle name is still her old middle name but in our culture, the wife would change her middle name to my (the husband's) first name. The only way to do this in NY is to file a petition and get a court order granted, then publish it in a newspaper. Seems like a lot of work for just a middle name change (her first name won't change). It says this can take 1-6 months or longer.
The issue is I need to submit a I-485 for green card application asap, given she only has about 1 month left until she overstays her K-1 visa.
Should I do this middle name change legally now, and apply for the I-485 immediately afterwards, even if she overstays her visa? Or should I just apply for it using her current married name and deal w/ changing the middle name after she gets her green card?
