    Divorced him / her

    I think you need to change your circle of friends. Previously a friend told you the K-1 no longer existed and only spousal visas were possible. Now a friend is telling you that divorcees cannot petition their fiancรฉes. Unless you heard it from USCIS or read it on the official USCIS website, itโ€™s not true.

    The report of my death was an exaggeration. First off yes I am back in the saddle. In March of this year I had some problems swallowing food and had to at times take a drink of fluids to help it along. I had an appointment at the VA and mentioned this to the my Doctor. She informed me that I needed to make an appointment right away to see the ENT Doctor. Made the appointment and during the exam he placed a camera tube down my nose to my throat to see what was causing the swallowing problem. Once down their he was able to see cancer at the back of the tongue. Next day I was in front of 9-12 Doctors and associates prepared to deliver what my treatment was, the prognosis of the treatment and what the road ahead looked like. During that conversation the Dr.s indicated that I had a very good chance of beating this and that there wouldn't be any cancer in the rest of my body. I had 4 chemo treatments with no side affects and 37 radiation treatments which I wish on no one. The week after finishing the radiation I had many additional problems from the rad treatment and spent the next 3 weeks in the hospital. I am now on my 5th week home and my recovering is going very well. I had the tube examination not long ago and the Oncologist didn't see any cancer. Next month I go in and have a PET scan of my entire body to confirm that I am cancer free. This is my 4th bout with cancer and each and every time the good Lord has seen me through this. I thank everyone here on VJ with their well wishes and prayers and to Hank for keeping me as well as you in the "loop" on my progress and your well wishes. It is much appreciated. Now get back to work. We GOT people to help!!

    I went to the post office Wednesday afternoon in Las Vegas to mail my (OK, my wife's) I-485 AoS package. The options were Priority Mail for about $7, which would take 2-3 days, or Priority Mail Express for $25.50, with a money back guarantee to arrive by noon the next day. I figured I've spent so much already on this process that I might as well plunk down my credit card and pay $25.50 for the next day service. But I wasn't happy about it. Went online with the tracking number and set up email and text message notifications, because I'm neurotic. I was alerted yesterday that the package arrived at the P.O. Box in Chicago at 12:39 p.m. local time. Did I go back to the post office today to claim my $25.50 refund because the package didn't arrive by noon? I did. And she handed me back cash, which felt even sweeter.

    VAWA, Part 16

    A very good advise i received was expectations might hurt instead live the moment don't rely on the GC instead focus on the precious time utilize it be happy there are people who don't even have food to eat no home to live and yet you worry so much. Over thinking and worrying made me very weak had crazy weight lose with scary looks so slowly slowly i stopped many negative things dropped the expectations of GC and always thinks about other people who is doing less like my friend who died at very young age left behind wife and 2 kids recently another friend suffering with serious health issues says bro what am i gonna do with this USC when my health is not with me. I realized my health and peace of mind is equally required in order to live the moment no matter which part of the world we live cycle of life is the same every where.

    writ of mandamus

    Sorry about your situation. A Writ of Mandamus is not do-it-yourself. Filing a lawsuit against the US Government in federal court is not a do-it-yourself task. You need to be able to cite specific laws, etc. There is no practical way to sue the US Government in federal court without a competent lawyer. It seems like you have problems meeting the I-864 requirements. The fact that your first JS was rejected and you were asked for a second JS is a red flag. Additionally, you stated that they asked for a second JS in March 2019. You said you lived with your wife until June 2019. It seems there may be a domicile issue also. Instead of trying to sue the US Government, you might want to get someone to review your case. Seems like there are things that are being missed.

    writ of mandamus

    A WoM, especially against the consulate, is not something I would recommend without the assistance of a lawyer. This is a highly technical process outside the realm of somebody not experienced in this area of law.

    I'm here to stay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a day, phew. So we braved the freezing rain, lovely sis(in-law) came & got me, drove through hideous road conditions, there were so many poor folks involved in accidents(some more serious than other-please let everyone be safe)....the Interstate(only road to get there from here) had been closed & the traffic was so backed up-goodness only knows how me were only a few minutes late. When we got there the place was EMPTY, apparently there weren't meant to be any interviews scheduled for today but somehow ours had slipped through. The lady who saw us was so understanding, she cried when she looked at our photos(I just sat & cried the whole time-my face, eyes & head hurt) she said there's NO WAY they could possibly refuse me, just a quick form to sign & I have approval-I should receive my green card in a couple of weeks. Coming home I felt like a weight has been lifted off of me to some degree. Once my green card arrives I'm going on vacation, somewhere warm, by the sea to sit & catch my breath, & decide what to do upon my return. Thank you all so much for all your help & support, you've helped me a great deal more than you may know โค๏ธ

    Sometime back in 2015 I thought it'd be a nice thing to make a jar of little love notes, stamped with hearts, in special tiny cute envelopes I'd found & sent it to Ryan. I told him they were for him to open whenever he felt he wanted to for whatever reason.... I know that he opened them from time to time-he would delight in telling me when he did. I need to take his driving license with me on Thursday so I opened his wallet to get it....hiding at the back of his wallet, tucked safely away behind the photos of his daughter was one last, unopened tiny envelope love note which he'd carried around everywhere with him. He was simply the most wonderful, loving, romantic & sentimental man I've ever known!

    Hi all, My EAD (C09) + AP Extension was approved today 13NOV19. I applied on 08JUL19, NOA1 date was 16JUL19. Thank you God! Now trying to figure out should I apply for EAD extension again in around 6 months or not? My VAWA was submitted in April 2019, so decision will be around November 2020 and exactly in November 2020 my new just extended EAD will be expiring, so do I need to apply for an extension again or all good because VAWA based one will be granted when and if approved?

    writ of mandamus

    Some people don't write very carefully. You don't know the difference between a tax return and a tax refund. You don't "get tax returns by the end of year when you file for it on IRS." You file a tax return. You don't get a tax return. You don't file a tax refund. You get a tax refund.

    I saw a funny set of tweets today. The poster is talking about her Mum, who is a WI member (Women's Institute). A woman who makes her own jam and recently had a Victoria Sponge judged by a Women's Institute official in a white lab coat. Last week my MOM, 65, got an actual TATTOO. I'm still in shock. Important deets - 1. She's been drunk twice, ever 2. She thinks "#######" is quite a bad swear word 3. She got the tattoo on a Women's Institute coach trip to Chester 4. It's of a ball of wool and knitting needles Quotes: 5. "Bat out of Hell was playing while I got it done." 6. "The man took a photo because he's never done one before" - no kidding 7. "The language in there was a bit choice. Someone said the F word! Not to me, to his colleague" 8. "I'm old now, I can do whatever I like" 9. She was going to do a big reveal at Christmas but didn't want to "because the grandchildren will be there". They are 14 and 16. Their dad has numerous tats. 10. She told me I am "still not allowed one" Magic

    Hellooooooo guys! I hope you are all doing good. I just want to thank you all for helping me with my K1 journey, especially to @Hank_ and @Greenbaum. ๐Ÿ˜„ My interview went smoothly today! The consul just asked me the folllowing 1. What's your petitioner's full name? 2. What does he do? 3. Was he born in US? 4. Does he have children? (The consul asked me the same thing) 5. Did he got married before? 6. How did you meet your fiance? After few minutes of waiting, he told me that my visa got approved as he already have everything! I think what he meant with "everything" is we already submitted all our proof of relationship when we filed our Petition. ๐Ÿ˜ Good luck to all you guys!! God Bless you all ๐Ÿ˜Š

    To those scared about those PDFs donโ€™t be! If you have a real case you will be approved. have faith and rest easy. I say it because my case was very complicated and I still got approved. I was a victim of mental, sexual and physical abuse. The officers will know when someone has suffered abuse. It is always important to be consistent with everything you submit so please rest assured. I waited 23 months until my approval and this process has been an agony but this forum has helped me so much; more than anything else. โœจif youโ€™re reading this, Iโ€™m sending you positive vibes and energy regardless where you are in the process โœจ

    Hi guys. We just had our interview. It took like 30 minutes and a lot of questions was asked like how we first met, all from k1 visa until we married. The lady is nice and chatting with us. She interview us together. She didn't say we are approved but told us we will hear for them in 30 days.. but when i checked our status online now it's approved. Finally we can breathe until ROC. She gave us conditional 2 years since we just got married. She gave us the paper instruction for removal of condition. Goodluck to everyone! Will enjoy our time for now. โค๏ธ

    My best advice to you is that to be patient and be ready to start from below zero and not to give up. I worked in a completely different field when I was in my home country (office setting). When I moved to the US, I couldn't find a job in the same field, at least in the same state where my ex and I were living. I was not going to leave her and move to a different state of course. It was very difficult for me, but I started working in a restaurant peeling potatoes and carrots, between 100 to 150 pounds every day beside cutting other foods for the minimum wage. It was not enough to pay the bills as my ex wife lost her job. I got another job in news paper delivery. My shift started at 2:00 am and it was outdoor. Working from 2 am till 6-7 am in Winter was very hard. Too cold in New Hampshire. Few months later I was able to get a job in a warehouse, at least it is indoor, but was very tiring lifting boxes and pushing stuff around. I got promoted there, then a company acquired where I worked and I was offered a better pay and position if I accept their offer. I did. I started making enough money and my ex got a job, so I went to college and got some courses in the new field. I was hired as assistant manager and now I am making close to $70k. I remember working in the warehouse, it was very difficult and too much physical pain and low pain, but I kept telling myself that it will be difficult to start a new life.

    There is no new requirement, which is what the thread claims in the very title. Some IOs just make mistakes. Some documents get lost. But to stretch that to a change in requirements is inaccurate. Itโ€™s the same today as it was yesterday as it was last month as it was last year.

    While I understand where you are coming from and your desire to see her not able to ROC... thats just not how it works. I suggest you look through posts by the user mindthegap as he is going through the court process for ROC through no fault of his own. The bottom line is an alien can file ROC multiple times- and technically when filing with a divorce waiver it can be done at any time so there is no late filing explanation needed. You also seem to be reading into the letter. If it says it was denied because you pulled out of the petition then thats why it was denied. Unless it specifically listed under the grounds that she did not establish good faith- they didnt deny for that and only denied based on you withdrawing. She can file a divorce waiver with out actually having the divorce. She will just need the divorce decree to be approved. I know its all very confusing so again I suggest reading some of mindthegaps postings and post back any additional questions you have.

    @Cookie378, I hope you can see why the 53 year age gap is such a huge red flag. It's the same someone born on 11/12/1966 marrying a person born today twenty years from now.........I know of no culture where this is the norm. And that's just one red flag. In addition, the generation gap would normally create much different interests, life style, etc........Do not expect US immigration authorities to see this as anything but extremely suspicious.......I would expect her moving to your country to live is a better plan since this is likely to be an extremely long and expensive journey.......
