Starting my Journey :)

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! I'll briefly introduce myself and share my story!

my name is Veronica and I'm pretty new to this forum.. I decided to join the vj community since I found it incredibly helpful so far.

I met the love of my life in my own country way back in 2009. We separate and we met again after 5 years during a getaway in the U.S. Started a long distance relationship with long lonely nights and really hard work. We visited each other as much as we could.. Unexpectedly he proposed last May, during one of my visits under the vwp (I had absolutely no intention to stay when I arrived). We got married one month after and filed for my AOS..

So now we are patiently waiting, hoping for the best.

Thanks for reading me, V

Very best wishes on your immigration journey, may I ask, what was your RFE about?

thank you! Yes sure! My husband sent his W2 of the past 3 years.. But he forgot to provide a COMPLETE federal income tax return for the most recent year (2014). We're sending a response this weekend!

not really! I would like to start gardening but in Wisconsin it's cold as hell and I find it hard to grow anything.. <_<

By the way I need to start some kind of hobby while I wait for my case to be processed. I'm getting paranoid!

Wish you the best on your journey.
