    New member, need advice.

    You said "Do the K1, I got here with that and the lawyer my husband used then recommended him as it is faster ". That advice is outdated..I believe most people are looking for current information. ..besides, the spousal visa is far, far superior in many ways...imo.

    You are welcome to give advice. But if the advice is based on outdated information, understand that other members can post updates or corrections. The intention is to give the original poster (and other readers) more relevant information that they can use to make the best decision for their situation.

    My tip is to definitely NOT go for the K-1. I went through it myself and would never recommend it under normal circumstances, now I look at it as right out foolish to choose that path over the CR-1. But to each their own, of course, whatever works for you two. Just some advice from someone who has been through it. There are an insane amount of disadvantages to the K-1 visa. Us too figured being together as fast as possible was more important than anything else - that turned out to be the completely wrong thing to focus on in this immigration journey. You'll be together soon enough, make the it easier for both of you by not choosing the K-1.

    Lord Jesus, give me the strength to stick it out over the long haul—not the grim strength of gritting my teeth but the glory-strength God gives. It is strength that endures the unendurable and spills over into joy, thanking the Father who makes me strong enough to take part in everything bright and beautiful that he has for me. Jesus, give me strength in my weakness. Amen.

    Was going to say that too, the N-400 is completely different from the i-751. The N-400 does not require the US spouse even if filed under the 3 year rule, they will in almost all cases actually ask the US spouse to leave or stay in the waiting room if s/he comes to the office with the petitioner. If there's an i-751 involved then it's a different ballgame, the US spouse is required to be there. I have seen a couple of cases where the spouse was present but was told to wait in the waiting room, but that seems very rare and no reason to take the chance and not bringing the spouse. I have seen a ton more cases where the interview had to be rescheduled because the US spouse wasn't present.

    N400 interviews are exclusively for the petitioner. ROC interviews filed jointly, both the petitioner and the spouse must attend.

    Stick with K1 or Start New CR1

    So, to summarize, if you live in the present time then CR1 is definitely quicker and probably preferred. If you somehow exist in a time prior to COVID, then K1 is quicker and probably preferred.

    My old passport has already expired. My visa to travel to the United States is still valid but in my expired passport. Do I need to apply for a new visa with my new passport? No. If your visa is still valid you can travel to the United States with your two passports, as long as the visa is valid, not damaged, and is the appropriate type of visa required for your principal purpose of travel. (Example: tourist visa, when your principal purpose of travel is tourism). Both passports (the valid and the expired one with the visa) should be from the same country. When you arrive at the U.S. port-of-entry (POE, generally an airport or land border) the Customs and Border Protection Immigration Officer will check your visa in the old passport and if s/he decides to admit you into the United States they will stamp your new passport with an admission stamp along with the annotation "VIOPP" (visa in other passport). Do not try to remove the visa from your old passport and stick it into the new valid passport. If you do so, your visa will no longer be valid. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/visa-information-resources/frequently-asked-questions/about-basics.html

    I didn't take any print outs with me. Nothing like that was asked. Glad I didn't waste 90 pages. I had it saved as a single pdf in case they asked and was going to upload it if asked Civics test was first: three original colonies, name of us representative, name of current president, right only of US citizens. Can't remember other two. Reading: What do we have to pay to the government? Writing: We have to pay taxes. All the answers in the form like legal name, ssn, dob, address. Officer asked about my unemployment dates, how many times I had been out of the country? and was impressed that the dates in the form matched their system data. Then the usual yes-no questions. I volunteered past traffic tickets from 11 years ago. Officer said no need to show me those. Then I signed forms. I was told I was approved and in line for oath ceremony. The office doesn't offer same day oath ceremony. I was out in 20 mins including security check, waiting and interview. My husband was still talking on the phone with his mother. 🤣🤣🤣 He was waiting in the car. You are done already? Yup!

    It's not legal to require anyone to take an experimental vaccine. Also, if Biden's administration is soo worried about covid from immigrants, why are the illegal immigrants allowed to cross the border even when positive for covid? Even USC currently have to get the negative covid test prior to entering.

    Hi All, Want to give an update: Our case went into ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSING on Aug 3rd after being in READY since July 30th. Naturally we freaked out a bit because we know the Consulate has all the documentation needed to finalize the decision. Did a little investigation and found this on US Embassy site for Japan: https://jp.usembassy.gov/visas/nonimmigrant-visas/visa-status-check/ This provides a thorough explanation of what each status could mean. After reviewing the above link we were able to calm down a bit because based on the explanation ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSING could mean the Visa has been approved and waiting to be issued. Guess WHAT??? My husband Visa was issued TODAY!!!!!! (Aug 5th) 😃😃😃 We are so very happy after 6 yrs of an uphill battle fighting tooth and nail we are FINALLY done!

    Can we not derail the thread into speculative rage complaining about Joe Biden reason #51861? This thread is about Cuomo. I did mention Gaetz briefly, because I'm still pretty annoyed that for all the real investigative work done about his documented problems, he continues to hang around with no real consequences. But if I had wanted to discuss that in detail, we could do that in his own thread. So what's going on about the impeachment of Cuomo so far? And why is Chris Cuomo still around? So far he's made no mention of it on his show, which is still airing. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/08/04/business/media/chris-andrew-cuomo-cnn.html

    Every couple has their own priorities, and each couple must decide which visa is better for their situation. IMO, the CR-1 is superior for many couples. K-1 More expensive than CR-1 Requires Adjustment of Status after marriage (expensive and requires a lot of paperwork) Spouse can not leave the US until she/he receives approved Advance Parole (approx 6-8 months) Spouse can not work until she/he receives EAD (approx 6-8 months) Some people have had problems with driver licenses, Social Security cards, leases, bank account during this period Spouse will not receive Green Card for many months after Adjustment of Status is filed. A denied K-1 is sent back to USCIS to expire CR-1 Less expensive than K-1 No Adjustment of Status(I-485, I-131, I-765) required. Spouse can immediately travel outside the US Spouse is authorized to work immediately upon arrival. Spouse receives Social Security Card and Green Card within 2 or 3 weeks after entering the US Opening a bank account, getting a driver's license, etc. are very easily accomplished with GC, SS card, and passport. Spouse has legal permanent Resident status IMMEDIATELY upon entry to US. �

    I think that, unfortunately, k1 and cr1 have almost same timeline, so main advantage that k1 had over cr1 is gone… If you are physically with her now or planning to visit soon, most members will give you advise to do cr1 since it allows your future wife to work asap after arrival and she will have green card. :)..

    Save The Last Rants For Me

    Oh yes. (Wow, that Harder Lemonade on a nearly empty stomach is kicking my butt) Forgot to say that when I arrived the a/c was not working. 90 degrees inside. Wife was in panic mode. NOT to fear. I can fix that. Capacitor was burned and had melted some wires. I was prepared as I keep an extra capacitor on hand and brought my tools. Had it fixed very quickly. For once I was the wife's hero. Kind of annoying but I have a dove that has built a nest under the house (it's a stilt house) and she WILL NOT move off that nest no matter what. Not really a problem, but she is kind of messy. Even moving the boat just inches away from her did not seem to bother her. Now it's time for this drunken sailor to head off to the nearest sandbar to watch the sunset and have another one. Shh, don't tell on me.

    This is one reason to always try and book any connecting flight with the same record locator or booking reference ID. If you were to book MNL to LAX with a separate booking from LAX to Dallas, and she is late to that flight, airlines are not obligated to pay for her next flight if it’s missed. However if it’s all booked with the same number then they will just put her on the next flight. Some people try to book separate flights to save money but it’s not always the wisest idea.
