7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I brought my wife here from the Philippines on a K-1 visa. She arrived on Nov 24, 2011. We married on Dec 24, 2011. We were preparing the package for her AOS but did not file it. She had to return to the Philippines on Jan 21st due to a family medical emergency. We really didnt have a choice.

What do I do now? I think we are stuck. I will have to petition her again btu this time do an IR-1? Can someone help me out here on what I have to do?

Thanks.

Should I use her married name on the application or her maiden name which is what her passport shows. Or should I have her apply for a new passport with her married name first and then apply.

Her married name! And you can file the I 130 while she waits for her new passport. At least that is what we did. Her passport will be done loooog before your I 130 will be processed.

Good luck

John,

if your wife is an accomplished medical doctor and was able to save the life of a family member, I'd say it was all worth the extra wait and expense.

Both my parents died while I was in the U.S., unable to travel without jeopardizing my status, but if I had been one of the best cardiac surgeons in Europe, I would have traveled anyway.

There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.
