  3. Thank you po sa lahat ng nga replies. Ingat!
  4. As far as finding work in America, the military, if qualified, is a good place to try. Both in the Guard, part time, and active duty, full time. It worked out great for my Filipino wife and our whole family. She did both. First the Air National Guard as a permanent resident, then as an officer in the U.S. Air Force on active duty as a naturalized U.S. citizen. Currently we live in Germany, near an air base, where she is an Air Force nurse. The Guard was a good part time job, and she also worked in health care at an assisted living, while going to nursing school. After working a couple of years as a civilian nurse then, she applied to be an Air Force nurse on active duty. I dont know about the other branches of service, but in the Air Force, if you are a nurse, they waive the age restriction and allow you to still enter up to 47 years old. And the pay is pretty good. We rent out our house in Tennessee for $700 a month, and the military pays for our rent and utilities in Germany. With all the benefits factored in, she earns about $95,000 (including rent, utilities, cost of living allowance, and base pay) per year. And promotions come nicely, with no limit to what you can achieve and become. There is travel and excitement. My son who is 10 enjoys it too. He wants to go to the Air Force Academy and become a pilot.
  5. Congratulations. A little patience paid off in your case. USCIS is notorious about not sending an email notification even with a G-1145. Most don't receive an email but it's not typical not to receive a NOA1 by mail. Yours came so you are good to go for the wait for the next NOA.
  6. I called NVC at 7 AM. From start to finish the call lasted 8 minutes. I received my NOA2 on June 19th. I was able to get my case number and Invoice ID. She said they received it on July 17th, so they may still be putting it in the system. 🙂
  7. In the grand scheme of things, it's not important whether you use notice date or received date as it is normally a few days off and that is not going to swing the pendulum either way for timeline accuracy. @Cheburashka34 We are splitting hairs here. Not a big deal if you use one or the other.
  8. Thank you so much. This was a very informative and thorough answer. Lots of us K1ers are in so much mental pain for being in suspense so much. I wish the officials would give us some clarity. That would give us some hope or it will let us know if we need to make changes and switch to spousal visas in order to be together sooner. Thank you again. We'd definitely appreciate any signatures we get 💖
  9. Just got my biometrics appt in the mail Aug 13th. No update on the site though. Elizabeth NJ is where my appt is.
  10. Yes, your husband will need to check that box and explain the details surrounding his theft. Yes, declare the deportation order too.
  11. Finally, approved after 270 days!!! Alhumdullillah PD- 7th november 2019 transferred from texas to vermont service centre petitioner is a USC i don’t know about the date changes, I didn’t have the online access code whats the next step? good luck to everyone waiting for the approvals!
  12. I am active duty and my husband is awaiting his biometrics appointment, do you think we should call and inquire?
  13. Not as a household member unless they filing tax together. Joint if sponsor doesn’t make enough income.
  14. The original documents are not needed for follow to join until interviews in Manila. You are actually creating the problem you are trying to avoid by taking the originals with you.
  15. It just occurred to me, my Police Cert will be over 6 months old if I wait - Is that OK or would I need a new one? Medical should be fine as I haven't taken that yet.
  16. What does TMH mean? thanks for the welcome, yes im a female. Lol I'd rather be a happy color. But i am feeling better now thank you 💚
  17. Look at the spouse timelines for Pakistan: https://www.visajourney.com/timeline/k1list.php?op6=All&op66=All&op7=Pakistan&op1=3&op2=&dfile=No&op3=5&op4=1&op5=5%2C6%2C8%2C10%2C11%2C13%2C14%2C15%2C16%2C17%2C18%2C20%2C21%2C22%2C25%2C26%2C27%2C28%2C108%2C110%2C111%2C208%2C210%2C211&cfl=0 Months it took for the I-130 approval for the latest 9 members who've updated their profiles: 9, 8, 10, 12, 6, 6, 4, 9, 12 So if your case is at 10 months, you're doing ok. Have some patience. It's free! : )
  18. I know you feel like you are forgotten. And I applaud you for trying to take action for the K1 action. Here is the reason I think the K1 will be a difficult category to make mission critical. It is because it is too reliant on the marriage taking place. For example, what if the immigrant comes here and they decide that they don't want to get married after all? We have seen that scenario many times here. If an immigrant gets a visa and problems in the relationship occurs before they get married, they have no path to becoming a resident. And another issue we see on here with the K1 is the AOS. Many times we see the immigrant come to the US and get married but do not AOS because they do not have the money to do so. And even though they satisfied the 90 marriage requirement, they are still not a legal resident until they file AOS. The K1 is classified as a nonimmigrant visa because technically, the beneficiary does not have legal resident status when they enter the US. They only have an authorization of stay for 90 days. And anything can happen in those 90 days. By contrast, with the spousal visa, they immigrant becomes a permanent resident the day they step foot in the US. So it is automatic and does not rely on a ceremony or adjustment to take place. I hope this helps explain why the spousal visa has higher priority than the fiance visa. Too many things can happen that keeps the immigrant from becoming a LPR. So the risk would be higher especially with COVID going on and the possibility of another shut down (which may prevent the fiance from doing things like getting married and getting a job). I think the K1 processing will return to normal soon enough, though.
  19. Looking at the list for June and July 2020, it doesn't look like they've issued any k1 visas at all. Does anyone know if that's the case or am I reading that wrong?
  20. Just checked our records and, yes, email says 5-8 weeks and letter 5 Weeks. Perhaps now is the right time to ask for an update🤔
