Better to file forms online or to mail them? 11:51 am today
Read 19 Times
I came to the US almost 3 months ago with ESTA and a week ago my husband and I got married. We decided to stay in the country and file for the AOS
(please note that none of this was planned ahead; we were planning of moving to EU together, but things changed because of the pandemic)
We are filing the forms now and apperently we need to file the i130 (and 130a for me) and the i485. We found out that the first one can be filled out online, but the second one has to be mailed.
Our doubt is weather it is OK to do so... Maybe it's better to print both the forms and mail them? Our preference was to split the procedure as I have only a week left of the 90 days that I can spend here with ESTA and the online procedure makes it faster to start the AOS process, as I can submit my personal documents digitally and we don't need to wait some extra days for the post office to deliver the envelope.
what do you think guys? Any advice? Thank you
US EMBASSY OPENING 11:19 am today
Read 57 Times
I completed my interview and my passport pick up date was in March (I got a yellow slip) . However, the day before my pick up- the embassy announced that they are closing for COVID.
The country has opened officially from last week but the US embassy remains closed. I have emailed them regarding this and they reply with an automated email.
Any idea how i could reach them? and when the embassy might open?
My husband and I miss each other so much and it has been so long I wish i could see him soon.

Ciudad Juarez Movement (interview) 10:57 am today
Read 40 Times
I just had an email about an hour ago stating my August 14 Interview was cancelled. I was so sadden to see this, it was still 2 months away. I thought maybe by then things would be better and i could attend. Has anyone else had their appointment that far cancelled recently or has anyone had their appointment rescheduled? I was so looking forward to August and now who knows how many more months this will put us back AGAIN. We were there and Covid 19 happened so it put us back to August and now this.
The email said:
* The appointments at the applicant service center (ASC) Ciudad Juarez ASC and the Consular SEction Ciudad Juarez for the following applicant(s) were cancelled.
It then states names and appointment dates that were cancelled
It continues to say:
To schedule a new appointment or to get more information, please log into our website.
the CSRA Visa Appointment Information Service Team*
The email said nothing about being cancelled because of Covid 19 nor did it give any explanation at all. I went to check if I could reschedule and still everything is blocked with this message in red
*There are no available appointments at the selected location. Please try again later.*
