hello everyone,

i just filed my I-751 , (GC condition removal..)After filing, so frustrating that i was told by my lawyer that our daily life's photo is not qualified! But the rest of documents is ok.. We are worried that we could get Request of Evidence or interview. Can anyone with experience tell me how likely we could get RF or interview ? which procedure is more likely? interview or RE?

the reason why i said my future is screwed is that i have to travel aboard, if i get notice , i have to come back at once at large cost of airline ticket cancellation.

Do you recommend traveling for my situation? i really can not afford to be pulled back to sort out those issue in middle of my travel.

timeline 7, 1 2015 filed.

8, 6, 2015 , biometric.

~Moved from Fam.-based AOS to ROC Forum~

~Inquiry about ROC, not AOS process~

(mod hat off)

Welcome to the forum.

Sit back and relax, you likely have a lot of time in order for you to read up on the similar thoughts and concerns that quite a few other similarly-situated folks have. Check out their timelines. Our ROC journey started in Aug 2014, included a RFE. successfully concluded in June 2015, without an interview.

While you are waiting, :time: It helps everyone that uses the forum.

Good luck on your immigration journey.


Completed: K1/K2 (271 days) - AOS/EAD/AP (134 days) - ROC (279 days)

BruceLeeLee, you didn't give a lot of information about what you DID submit - so it's hard to say what will happen. I'm guessing that your attorney was trying to say that photographs are not the most "valuable" of evidence to submit. If I were to create a list in the "Most Valuable" to "Least Valuable" order for submission of a bonafide marriage I would say:

1. Evidence showing you live in the same place (lease agreement, house deed, driver's licenses with the same address, major utility bills)

2. Evidence showing that you have combined your financial lives (rent checks/mortgage payments, bank statements of joint accounts from the time you married until submission, credit cards in both your names, loans in both your names)

3. Evidence that you have combined your lives in other ways (health insurance with both names, car insurance with both names, both names on the title of a car)

4. Evidence that you have planned for the future together (wills naming the spouse as beneficiary, health proxies naming the spouse as decision maker)

5. Evidence that your love has produced offspring (birth certificate of children, adoption papers)

6. Evidence of mail that has been addressed to both of you (holiday cards, wedding invitations)

7. Evidence of travel together (plane boarding passes, hotel reservations, pictures with dates from famous places like the Empire State Building, or the Sydney Bridge Climb - where the place has actually taken the picture with a timestamp)

8. Affidavits from people who know you and can describe your relationship

9. Pictures together

This is my personal belief - not anything written anywhere. The top four could go in any order, and others here might disagree with me totally!

Best of luck - perhaps you won't get an RFE!

If the photos are the only concern,but your other documents are in order, there's nothing to worry about. Photos are not the best evidence in any case, IOs don't give them that much weight in the context of other evidence.

Best

P.S. Your lawyer is a bit strange in that if they felt you should not have included such photos, why did he not mention it earlier and ask you to send something different?

thanks for replying,

It me keep bring bad photos and they are tired of it. :sleepy:

What do you mean? Photos of you together doing whatever are fine. I mean, I can't imagine a photo of a couple together that would be 'bad' or problematic for immigration purposes, unless it showed you both naked and/or in flagrante delicto or something. :devil:

Jon and Sol

hello, i got it. thank you :idea:

i wonder how did you get walk in biometric?

anyone can walk in??

Anyone can try to walk in. Once you have the biometrics appointment letter, you can walk in weeks ahead of the actual appointment date and time. It is at the discretion of the individual office whether they allow walk-ins or not. I have heard that some locations only allow it if it is not busy. I see you're in California, my guess (and this is only a guess) is that you are less likely to get away with a walk-in in California due to a large volume of immigrants.

Also, :time: so we can better assist you, and so your data can assist others.

allright buddy, it looks like walk-in will not gonna speed up the case. anyway thanks for ur words though.. :idea: .

Anyone can try to walk in. Once you have the biometrics appointment letter, you can walk in weeks ahead of the actual appointment date and time. It is at the discretion of the individual office whether they allow walk-ins or not. I have heard that some locations only allow it if it is not busy.
