IR1/CR1 Visa Discussion
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:

evidence of 2nd trip: advice needed 11:50 am today
Read 11 Times
I have evidence of my 2nd trip to be with my fiance and I'm not sure when to send it--------should I have my fiance send it to the embassy along with the Affidavit of Support and other documents he will send to the embassy before his interview? Or should he take this additional evidence with him when he goes for the interview? Just want to know, any suggestions/opinions?
I-765 for K2, Item 16, Do I list the stepfather (K1 petitioner) or biological father\'s birth name? 11:41 am today
Read 14 Times
I've been able to answer most my questions with a thorough search of past questions..but this one I can't find.
We're filing an I-765 (Employment Authorization) for our K2 minor child along with the rest of the AOS paperwork. For the purpose of getting her a Social Security Card.
Item 16 requests the birth names of the applicants' father/mother. I ASSUME we should list the K2 child's biological father. However, since I'm now her stepfather, was the K1 petitioner, and the biological father hasn't ever been in her life I wanted to double check. Wasn't sure if I should list the US citizen step father (me) or her biological father in Brasil.
Any thoughts? This one has me stumped.
Thanks ahead of time!

Applying ETA for Canada after I751 11:27 am today
Read 19 Times
I would like to ask if anybody has entered Canada using their ETA (arrival by air) after submitting I751?
I got my ETA two years ago using my soon to be expired GC, and it is due to expire soon.
So how do you update it using a green card that is already expired? Because I know the system ask you to enter the expiration date of your GC.
Domestic air travel while waiting for biometrics 11:06 am today
Read 40 Times
Hi, my wife came to the U.S. with a K-1 visa in August and we got married a couple of days later. We immediately submitted her package for AOS and received the NOA1. We are waiting for the biometrics appointment but her I-94 and visa have expired. Other than her Russian passport, she has no U.S. ID; given this, is it possible for her to make a domestic trip by air from Boston to LA? Or she's likely to have issues at the airport? Thanks
