    This is frustrating!

    I don’t know where to submit this so move if in wrong forum or delete if not allowed but am frustrated! This whole visa waiting game is hard but it has to happen ... But what makes us (husband and I) frustrated is people who want to enter the US on a tourist visa and just stay because it’s quick and easy. it’s the people who don’t do it the “proper” way - the way we are doing it.... via consular processing etc if that’s even the proper way - who knows 🤷‍♀️ Ive told the same person on FB 1 million times that “wife cannot enter USA on tourist visa with intent to immigrate” ... but they just want a quick, easy way for a “green card” - like don’t we all? Don’t we all want to be with our spouse? if all due respect to others I really find it hard to also believe that someone went on JUST a holiday and then “circumstances changed” and they just stayed 🧐 no furniture to sell? No rental to cease? No car to sell? I don’t know, resign? Do the right thing and give your 2 weeks notice? Get all your belongings? End your life in your home country before you make a new life? this is really frustrating to see. It’s a really lonely process that is just full of the “unknown”. it is the path we picked - consular processing because (a) don’t wanna commit visa fraud 😆 especially if I want to be an attorney and (b) because it’s the right way? Correct me if I’m wrong. single parenthood while we wait is hard. Lonely and hard and yes a consequence of our actions still lonely nonetheless. 😞

    Hey guys, I just got DQed! I submitted on December 18th, so it took a little under two months. I'm very happy about it but also a little nervous. It's weird finally getting something when you've been long waiting for it.

    This is frustrating!

    Watch out the “spontaneous decision/intent at POE” faction will come after you for your post 😉 I hear you though. There are reports of CBP increasingly reading the phones of NIV travelers who deny immigrant/work intent at POE, and finding that they do in fact have such plans. So things are changing. It is funny how many here who have spontaneously adjusted from NIVs cite that they just couldn’t bear to be apart any longer..... as if those who petition and join the queue can?!

    This is frustrating!

    YOU VENT GIRL! 100% Agree, Its totally frustrating, and I’d go as far to say that I hope one day they get rid of the whole ESTA/B2 AOS process or at the very least make it so that it applies to emergency situations only that are well documented by independent third parties e.g. medical emergency It would be nice if for those that just so conveniently “change their mind about going home” had to go through a process that take 5 times longer than consular processing, it would serve as a big put off for those considering jumping the line.. yes you’ll get to be with your loved one but you can wait 5 years to be legal for the pleasure.. mean yes, satisfying, totally 😂

    Welcome to my life. I was just thinking how this is such a safe forum where everyone is so helpful and cheers for one another. It's pretty much a place to go to commiserate and to celebrate and everyone will just understand. Keep on fighting everyone!

    Hello, NVC document submetted on dec 4 NVC DQ 3rd Feb .

    It is highly highly NOT recommended to have ANY type of ceremony before you enter on a k1. Often times this can make you “look too married” and result in a denial. If having a religious ceremony in Bolivia is important to you you should come on a k1, get married and once you have your green card or AP then go back to Bolivia to have the ceremony.

    Negative attitudes in the forum

    I wanted to address the negative attitudes we have seen on the rise recently in the upper/ immigration forums towards those who ask beginner/ simple questions, or have unusually fast or slow VisaJourneys. First, there is a tone difference between the Progress forums- which are mostly for support and cheerleading, and the Info forums, which are mostly to have questions answered. While all our forums are supposed to be welcoming to all and friendly, this is especially important in the Progress forums, which are not to discuss politics, or be negative towards those fortunate to have their case dealt with quickly, or critical of those who voice sadness about their own slow progress. These forums are there to uplift eachother! Secondly- in the info forums, you may get bad news. When a question is asked, our members are encouraged to answer truthfully, even if this may not be what the Op wants to hear, because it is important to be informed. However, the emphasis is still on being welcoming and friendly. If you need to give bad news, do so gently, and stick to facts; constructive criticism of the Op's plans ARE allowed, but the emphasis is on constructive. No need to dwell on mistakes (or tell members they should be on 90 Day Fiance- that is a personal attack and automatic suspension), or illegal actions in the past- instead, encourage and explain legal options for the future. And ONLY legal options- as per our TOS, VJ does not support, condone or encourage illegal (immigration) actions, and such posts will be removed. Ultimately, we are here to help all members, old and new, easy cases and complicated, those who write a fact filled bullet point post and those who are panicking and don't make much sense in their first post. Yes, sometimes questions can be easily googled, or answered via a search of our forums. But if you feel that way, just scroll past- no need to criticise the OP for asking the question.

    Interview done and all approved! It's weird I don't feel like anything has happened at all. Like I feel there are more hoops to jump through...but that's pretty it for now. I guess it has not hit me yet. Had my medical last Friday and it had already made its way to the consulate thank goodness. Time to pack, pay my fee and wait for the passport then its USA time! Best of luck to all

    I am super happy and excited today , I just received the DQ email. All my documents were accepted. I submitted on 17th February 2019 and got DQ on 3rd February 2020. Praise The Lord!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No RFE, as I was panicking every second. I resubmitted a lot documents as I was scared that I will receive an RFE. I even rotated some of my files on Saturday and resubmitted just in case coz I was nervous. But God is good and I got DQ anyway, I was not move into the back of queue. If u feel that you need to modify something it’s best to do it then get a RFE. I pray for all those waiting for DQ email, I am with all of you and hope you received all your email this month. Thank you for the advices and support I received on this thread. You VJ family are the real deal. ❤️ Sorry i meant i submitted on 17th December 2019

    October 2019 I-129F FILERS

    My girl's birthday is Feb 4th and I sent her flower to her office in the morning and home at night. She made me promise not to spend more money by sending her flower on Valentine's day. I reluctantly agreed.. and I was trying to figure out how else to express my adoration to her while she is still in Vietnam and I'm here in Texas.. Well the USCIS just helped me out in a HUGE way... they just texted me to check my case... Approved!! NOA1- Oct 22th NOA2- Feb 13th This will make for the best V-Day gift i can give her tomorrow morning when she wakes. A big thank you for all of those on this forum that choose to help the us newbies, your time, advice and support is appreciated.

    Hello Guys, we finally got our DQ yesterday night. First submission to NVC on Dec 5th and Second submission was on Feb 3rd. I called NVC multiple times, trying to find a good person at NVC ( most of them are rude ) and finally found yesterday. The lady i spoke with was really nice and heard me well, within 5 hours after the call they approved it. Sometime all you need is to call them and find a good person there if you are waiting for unnecessary delay. I called them everyday after my second submission and they do have record of that. HAPPY its over, now to IL

    December 2019 - AOS Filers

    Just some random information...i was talking at work with our lead immigration attorney and he used to work for the US Government and did many many AOS interviews. He was saying some quick tips: 1. make sure you have pics with the parents, even if the pics are from K1 timeperiod...it establishes the bona fide 2. make sure you quiz on the mundane things (side of the bed you sleep on, color toothbrush, do they use floss) things that only living with someone would show you we are going to get coffee in the coming weeks to get a list of questions he used to ask and i will share....but thats what i have right now.
  35. 14 points
    I don't mean to come off as judgmental here, but based on the bolded portion here in your previous post you have implied that you already have one child. Since you haven't filed for AOS, your wife has not been able work or drive and has also been at serious risk of deportation since you have waited so long to file. On top of that, you have been far below the poverty line for income until 2019, but even that increase in income is too low for a household of 3 or more. I understand that life can throw things at you that you do not expect, but do you realize you have put your wife and family at serious risk by not filing? You need to step up and support your family. That is what the U.S. government expects of you, and that is also the right thing to do. Unless you have something barring you from acquiring decent full time work, you need to get out there ASAP and do it. Your wife does not deserve having to face possible deportation due to your lack of action. She is basically helpless in this country without legal status, proper ID, a social security number, etc. As others have said - amend your tax returns, look for better work, and file for AOS as soon as possible. Your wife will be authorized to stay in the U.S. as soon as you get the AOS receipt notice back from USCIS.

    NVC Filers - January 2020

    Ok update: I asked my mom to call the NVC and keep me on FaceTime so I could speak with them on speakerphone. That worked. We waited about an hour and a half. The representative said that our case is document qualified but that my income doesn’t meet the guidelines. We talked about my foreign income continuing when I get back to the states - my company is moving me back and the income and source will remain the same. I submitted all of this proof with my tax transcriptions. I was told that the NVC cannot make decisions on our type of situation and they leave it up to the Embassy to decide to accept or not. So after 531 days, on my son’s 15th birthday, we are DQ!

    So she’s left all her belongings back home? What about returning her apartment keys to the landlord or selling her home? What about her vehicle? Does she have all the documents here that she needs for adjustment of status (birth certificate, etc)? Is this really what she wants? What’s the point of studying hard for those exams right now if she can’t work for many, many months anyway? Not being able to work for that long would have been career suicide for me. Six months out takes around 18 months to recover from in my profession. Plus the loss of income. Sure you’ll get to kiss her every day and sleep with her every night but this is a long-term decision you are making. Short cuts aren’t always the best way.
