Couple questions

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey all.

I have a few questions...

I have read this on here before, could someone please clarify it for me? After we get the visa, my fiance has 6 months to "activate" it, and then from the activation date, has 90 days to get married? Correct?

My fiance is from the UK, can he apply for a police record earlier in order to speed up the process? or are they going to ask for certain identification on why he needs it?

Also. As far as my part, on the petition. I only have to send my birth certificate right? Not birth certificate and copies of every page of my passport? I am sending passport stamp pictures, but not everything else, like the page with my picture on it... etc.

You apply for the ssn # after he gets here, before you get married?

I have also heard someone say before (not on this website) that to get a permanant residency card costs $1000 is that true?

I am sending out our petition today :) Just want to make sure I have everything correct.

I have:

Check (with yesterdays date as thats the day I wrote it)

Cover letter

Petition

Supplement to petition #18

G-325A (both... all 8 pages signed + 4 pages supplement for work history, all signed)

Passport photos

Letters of intent

Birth certificate (front and back)

Evidence (Boarding passes, credit card statements, photos, passport stamps)

And... I have made 2 copies of the whole thing, aside from all 8 pages of the G325A's, I only made 1 copy for each of us, because it's the same thing. lol.

As far as the packet goes, is it alright to highlight things? I want to highlight dates on things with same colors so they know which things correspond. Like, His passport stamps to Canada (green) and my Credit card statement showing the hotel (green) etc.

Here later today, I get to join the waiting game with you all. Oh yey! :thumbs:

By the way. Wish me luck, my fiance goes back home today. Good thing is, we will see each other again Decemeber 9th hopefully. :)

My fiance is from the UK, can he apply for a police record earlier in order to speed up the process? or are they going to ask for certain identification on why he needs it?

Passport: people have received RFEs asking for copies of all the pages. I guess they have to verify whether the pages with the visa stamps are part of your passport.


I only offer advice - not even legal. Just the plain and simple kind.

The USC needs to prove citizenship. This is usually done with the birth certificate so the passport is not necessary to send along also.

Once the approval comes from the consulate, your fiance has 6 months to travel. Once your fiance arrives in the US you have 90 days to get married.

Try asking about the police report in teh UK forum if you do not receive an answer here.

Looks like your petition is ready to go. It's such a good feeling to finally put it in the mail. Good luckon the journey. (F)

As far as the police report is concerned there is a validity period (might be 6mos might be longer). So if the report is received too far in advance you may run into that problem. Other than that, I cannot imagine a reason to not get it ahead of schedule. It might be better to understand the length of time that is required to obtain it and then time it accordingly. Might be best to wait a little bit until you are closer to approval status.


YMMV

midicat,

The fee for the application and associated biometrics service is about $400. Depending on what other costs you want to consider as part of the cost of becoming an LPR, $1000 is a reasonable rough estimate.

I have also heard someone say before (not on this website) that to get a permanant residency card costs $1000 is that true?
