Filed: IR-1/CR-1 Visa Country: Ireland

Hi Guys I have a few questions that I am sure you fine people of VJ can

easily help me out with, so here goes: married 26th March 2010 filing IR-1/CR-1, beautiful Ashley is in Boston and soon moving to Orlando, I am back in Ireland 2 weeks now trying to finally put my Masters to good use :P

Affidavits: Do I send the Original Notarized affidavit in the original package to the USCIS or is it a copy so that I have the Original for a later part of the process such as the Interview in the Dublin Embassy

I have just returned from the US to Ireland and am interviewing for jobs, one of which is definitely looking like I will get it, anyway if I do get it after filing can I amend my employment status after it is sent?It says unemployed at the moment as I was visiting for 3 months but I think for the application this may look better if I am employed. I do have very good savings if this is relevant at all?

I have tons of photos of both of us including the wedding itself, any gauge on how many to use would be great, realistically I could use 700+ but I dont wanna do that I as thinking 20+ ????what do you guys suggest?

As mentioned above my wife is moving to Florida by 31st of July will a change of address after the filing slow the process considerably?

Once again you guys & gals are amazing thanks in advance

Is feider linn!

Hi Shergar,

I would send original affidavits, keep a copy for your records. Also, I have read on here that the affidavits don't mean squat if they are just attesting to your wedding. They should be from people who have spent time with you since your relationship began with some details of things you did together leading up to them attending the wedding. Send a couple of pics from different visits since you first met leading up to a few of the wedding/honeymoon & a few since the wedding if you have them. I would think 20 max. and if you send chat, start from when you first chatted leading up to now..give them a glimpse of each month you've been together, maybe one msg from each week. Phone bills, boarding passes, skype sessions, financial co-mingling of any kind...just enough to show ongoing relationship without going overboard. As far as address change, I think its as easy as a phone call or an online procedure. Your employment doesn't matter as much as your sponsor's does so don't stress over that too much...Don't wait to file, the wait is long enough! Good luck..
