Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Chile


We are currently stationed in Germany, I already changed my address to my APO address and I was wondering where am I supposed to send my ROC paperwork to? I don't have a US address right now and they don't show the option for those who are away from the US.

Thank you for the information!

Can someone tell me where can I get the fingerprint cards? (form FD-258?)

thank you, i'd really appreciate the help!

I get my fingerprint cards done in the MPF on base or the Security Forces Building at one time. http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-751instr.pdf

from these I-751 instructions: Under General Instructions please read Exceptions and under Where to File please see the Note at the bottom. Basically you are filing at the Service center that provides services for the state where your spouse claims residence. HTH

Pp is correct. Mail it to the service center, whose jurisdiction your hubby's home state of residence falls under.

ROC mailed to USCIS -- June 10, 2011

ROC approved -- November 1, 2011

finally free of USCIS paperwork!

japan, japan! sagot sa kahirapan!

Did you read the instructions?? They clearly state that people living overseas should send their stuff to the USCIS office having jurisdiction over their home of record in the States.

You can get finger print cards on post.
