Community SpotlightWe applied for the K-1 Visa back in September 2021... no updates, no progression. I don't know what to do, I see some people from May 2021 still waiting. It's infuriating!
Generaltito posted a topic in Adjustment of Status from Work, Student, & Tourist Visas,I met and married a wonderful woman who entered the US on an ESTA in 2020. At the time of our marriage, she had overstayed her ESTA by over one year . We married after nine months of dating (June 2022). We are starting the process of adjustment of status. She told me last night that she cancelled her return ticket home a few months after her 90 day ESTA expired. She has also been working in the US illegally since May 2021...
lovinglive posted a topic in Adjustment of Status from Work, Student, & Tourist Visas,My fiance and I have decided to apply for AOS instead of spousal visa. But we will not be able to do the wedding and submit the AOS application before my fiance's visa entry expires. I read before that there is a small chance that my fiance could be detained for overstaying her visa. But we also need to travel before our wedding. Will it be a problem to take flights after the visa entry expires? Would we be better to stick to other forms of transport? Thanks in advance for any thoughts or experience you have...I've been studying the immigration process very closely ever see we embarked on this journey, and I don't get it from a US point of view. If you adjust status, then you qualify for a green card, and your visa bulletin is current. It's not like you are adjusting status despite an ineligibility to do so. What kind of problems, possibly security or workload related does it create for USCIS for aliens to adjust status from a tourist visa...I'm getting frustrated waiting for my AOS approval... Do people really NOT work for those 6-9 months it takes for your AOS to be approved? I applied for my EAD with my AOS in December 2021 and it says the case is pending.
So how do you spend your days?Recent Immigration Discussions

Current Backlog Estimate 1:00 am today
Read 18 Times
Hello, I'm a new member (Dec 2022 Filer) that has been following various case processing threads/google docs for several weeks now. Really appreciate the daily scanning and result compilation many members are doing, I can't imagine waiting for months up to years without having the general knowledge of cases being processed each month. There's a lot of well analyzed results of opened cases by members such as @mw & rg k1 and discussions backed by many google sheets analysis in @AndiB and @Anna Hessler's thread. However, I've been having hard time finding information about our current backlog estimate.
It seems like our current backlog estimate of various filers ranges from 38k ~ 55k and USCIS quarterly report does not seem to completely match with these numbers either. I'm wondering if anyone has data on monthly change in backlog in order to forecast the expected month NOA2?
I hope to find out info such as the following:
- Total backlog for each month (Sept 2021 - Jan 2023)
- Backlog Delta each month = Backlog of pervious month + Total new filers this month - Number of cases closed per month (Accepted/Denied/Withdraw)
Apologies in advance if my question does not make sense or had already been answered in other threads, I don't seem to be able to find a general consensus about the current backlog estimate.

Hi everyone, my wife and I will be visiting family members in south Texas. We will be driving through an internal border patrol checkpoint. My wife s green card expired and her i 751 is still pending. She has a 24 months extension letter from USCIS.
Will we face any issue at the internal checkpoint or should I delay this visit until we have the 10 year green card?

I intend filling a petition for my biological mother, however my mother is current married to another man, my question is can my mother's husband immigrate with her when the petition is approved and visa become available to her. I have read about derivative option online and my understanding is, a spouse or children of I-130 beneficiary can accompany or follow to Join the applicant. Will that be the case for my mother and the current husband? how do I go about it to bring her and the husband together? Please help. Thank you in advance.
Should I apply for N-400 with trip less than 6 months? 11:02 pm yesterday
Read 51 Times
I've been LPR for a little over 5 years (DV category, if it matters). I'd like to file for naturalization.
In 2018, after residing in the US for several months, I took a trip back to my country of origin for 166 days. This is under 180, but I did not maintain an US address during that time - this is visible from the address history section, where there's a gap between two different addresses that coincide with the leaving and return dates of that trip.
Since then, I've spent the majority of my time in the US. I've visited my family abroad once or twice a year, with trips of either 1 or 2 months each. In total, over 5 years, I'll have spent 401 days out of the US, with no trips longer than 180 days. I have never had trouble being admitted into the US.
(I did have another long trip shortly after obtaining my GC, also of just under 180 days and without US address, which I am currently waiting out - that one'll fall off the 5 years period this April).
Given these circumstances, is it a risky move to apply for naturalization? Or do I stand a good chance of approval, at least based on the absence?
(I also have yet to file taxes, since I've been a student and never owed anything. However I've read that it is always strongly recommended to file anyway.)
