    We got DQ! Wife and daughter both approved. No RFE's for I-130 or NVC. Thanks to those that helped with questions along the way! Hopefully with Vietnam being virtually COVID-free (no new cases for 45 days) they open the consulate and start scheduling interviews. Might be home for Christmas! Priority date July 22, 2019 Nebraska Service Center I-130 approved March 24, 2020 NVC submitted documents May 15, 2020 DQ June 1, 2020

    That's cool!! I keep thinking of how many of the changes that this pandemic generated are actually great changes that will remain once the crisis is over - not just in USCIS but all over the world.

    Best of luck, my friend. Good news is, you are free to go outside and mingle once again, as long as you smash a window or burn a police car. Oh wait, those are US rules, not sure they apply in Canada...

    Of course it is on the Embassy website . . . but feel free to start up something on the Filipino Grapevine and use Trump's name three or four times.

    I got this bit of good news this morning: Alex got the same thing. We've been self-isolating for over a week now, so I guess this means we can go to the grocery again. He's completely better, I have a lingering low grade fever and sluggishness. Edit to add: we're in the part of SM that has a curfew starting at 1pm, so I guess the grocery trip can wait until tomorrow. Going to binge-watch season 2 of Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce instead.

    I think you might miss the point that many women make their husband's lunches not because they are both working or one is not working, or because of what they are capable of, but because they love their husbands and enjoy showing them appreciation. My husband is capable of making his own lunches though he can be forgetful at times (he's a busy a guy) but I don't mind doing it for him, making sure he has something good to eat, and he leaves with a kiss and a smile on his face each day. Similarly, my husband has brought me breakfast in bed almost every day for five years. He enjoys doing so. People that love each other do things for one another to show they care. I can make my own breakfast, he can make his own lunch but this kind arrangement works for us. We are too quick as a society to jump down each other's throats and tell a woman what she can and cannot do within her own marriage so long as both parties are in happy agreement. It is not beneath a woman to make her husband lunch and it is not beneath a husband to help out at home, make a wife breakfast, or any other activities to show he cares.

    Coming to the US with the intention of getting married is not fraud. Coming to marry and stay is visa fraud. Your plan is perfectly legal. Requirements for marriage vary by State. Have the US Citizen check with the local County Clerk. Google marriage in (county, state name)

    We wrote an email to the NVC and they forwarded to the Frankfurt consulate. I don't know if we had any characters restrictions. But I don't think so. Yes, it means that the consulates and embassies are at least looking at some stuff. So hopefully all of them, especially in areas where the quarantine is getting lifted slowly, are starting to work normally soon. Maybe you can try it now? March is when everything started and they probably didn't do a lot of visa stuff.

    There is no issue with grammatically. I think most of the confusion comes the use of the word ONLY in the sentence, whereas a simple VALID FOR WORK WITH DHS AUTHORIZATION or use more common language like VALID FOR WORK WITH WORK PERMIT. Legalese are no fun to read and seems to be unclear on purpose.

    I remember when a large group of right wing nut jobs with guns protested awhile back. No one was hurt, no property was destroyed, nothing stolen. My eyesight may be dwindling in my old age, but I think I can clearly see the difference in what is going on today.

    Those are just examples of things you can send and are not really necessary for a spousal visa petition. For Ghana you have a tough road ahead of you. Please tell me you are sending more evidence than just an affidavit? You need lots of evidence in various forms to show a bona fide relationship to the embassy.

    I emigrated 26-04-2020 UK-US

    Hi All, I'm posting my experience for everyone, so if you move during this time, you know what to expect. I posted this in a mega-thread and feel it was getting lost. I'm free for any questions. Please only positive comments as I'm only putting this out there to help. So I moved on Sunday, this was pulled forward a couple of weeks as we didn't know if Trump would continue to change the Executive Order. I flew from London Heathrow to Newark and then on to Denver, Colorado. At first I wasn't sure if they were going to let me fly as I had to wait for IPS (Inspection of Passport Services) to check my Visa. Note I flew on an IR1 category visa. That took half an hour, there were three people on Visa's and two of us were authorised. I learned the other person was travelling to work on a ship so his visa qualified. The check in staff are told to refer anyone who isn't already a Green Card Holder or US Citizen so don't panic. Overall, took me two hours to check in but the desk computers had also gone down! At Heathrow, everything was closed! Except Boots and WH Smiths. There was only about 20 of us on the flight. The airlines were not serving alcohol either lol. Trolley's not being used, they just handed meals, drinks etc... out plus no ice was provided. I'm not fussy though! They also removed the pillows but they are gross anyway lol. Landed into Newark, the Centre of Disease Controls held us onboard. We had to complete a form called the COVID-19 report, this has to be done to be let off the plane. They advise that you self isolate for 14 days, along with any household members, also if you have any symptoms to call the doctor. When you disembark, they give you a mask, if you don't have one, they will give you a medical mask when you get off the plane. The CDC take your temperature then, if it's OK, you will head to immigration. At immigration, all the guards are wearing masks, they will ask you to take off your mask so they can ID you. I'm not sure if this next bit was normal but you may get seconded. This means taking into the back basically. I was sat there will 7 other British Citizens. My passport was given to the immigration officers behind the desk and I waited to be called. Make sure you leaving enough time to do this, it took me about 30 minutes then I had to get my luggage and re-check in etc.... I have 3 hours 40 min lay-over and had to wait a couple of hours after this, immigration won't care if you only had an hour layover. They asked me to confirm my husbands name, our wedding date and where we got married. I was processed and released. Now, domestic flights don't seem to have many restrictions. It was a full flight from Newark to Denver. It seems the general consensus to wear your mask when you aren't eating or drinking. I popped to the bathroom to remove mine periodically as I get pretty claustrophobic in mine! I think I saw one person without a mask. Again, only non-alcoholic drinks on board! Landed in Denver, this was pretty normal, no checks for domestic flights. Denver was pretty closed as well except for the necessary shops. My husband wanted to plan a group at the airport but due to the pandemic, it was just him which is fine. I think this will be a story for our kids how mummy moved during a world crisis. Good luck everyone! want to post this so you knew first hand what it was like if you are in a position to move.

    An Ivy League-educated lawyer and member of a Brooklyn community board was among those arrested for hurling a Molotov cocktail at a marked NYPD vehicle amid George Floyd protests, it was revealed Sunday. Colinford Mattis, 32, was allegedly behind the wheel of a tan minivan as his passenger, fellow attorney Urooj Rahman, allegedly hurled the incendiary at an empty NYPD vehicle outside the 88th Precinct stationhouse in Fort Greene early Saturday. Mattis, a graduate of Princeton University and the New York University School of Law, is an associate at corporate Manhattan firm Pryor Cashman. more at https://nypost.com/2020/05/31/accused-molotov-cocktail-hurler-is-ivy-league-educated-lawyer/

    Are you sure it's the cards? I live in MA too, and I got the informed delivery notice from USPS that the notice of action letter is coming in today (after approval on 5/28), but I thought there's a 96 hour delay in even producing the cards after approval.

    Am I the only one in this situation ?

    Hi Sego, I'm sorry to hear you're going through all of this. I also had my interview schedule for the end of March and it was cancelled. I lost my job due to covid and also moved in with my family. I can't imagine going through this while being pregnant. I don't have a date or any news on when the embassy will reopen in Japan (like most of us). Like you, I have been thinking about each and every option I have to be with my fiancé. He is in the military so he just can't move here just like that (though I wonder how difficult it would be for him to transfer to Japan since there are so many military bases here). We applied for an emergency interview for some personal reasons and with a supporting letter from his command, yet we were denied it. It's agonizing, but I think the only people who can judge the situation is you and you fiancé. And of course you have to think about the bureaucracy in France. As for now, I'm trying (VERY hard) to stay calm and hoping that the embassies will resume soon (though most of the time I think I'm just fooling myself ). But that's the only option most of us have left... Stay safe!

    Do you mean naming GCSEs or specific A-levels? They wouldn’t understand the terminology. Graduated high school on an application form with no space except for the date would suffice. If you have a Uni degree, then don’t leave that off.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to me and for your advice. We will definitively have someone check our mailbox. We actually already booked flights with Delta Airlines and they are waiving change fees but you still have to pay the price difference if it’s higher and the prices are getting worse everyday. So if we had to change our ticket last minute, we would have to pay at least $700 each, if not more. If we had to go back after that, it would be another $1500 each minimum too.

    Hello fellow March 2019 ROC filers! Assuming this is my last post to this group... ROC case, filed March, 2019/approved May 22, 2020. App status changed May 29 PM to "Card Was Delivered To Me By The Post Office"...and indeed it was! Arrived by USPS Priority Mail @ 2:30 PM. Mailed K-1 visa application on April 13, 2016...4+ years later, permanent green card in hand. Its been a long road full of anxiety, confusion, hard work, and frustration! But we're so very happy to be where we are today! Just a bit farther to go...N-400 filed in March. Just waiting now for biometrics appt to be re-scheduled, then interview, citizenship test, and oath; USCIS online acct shows estimated case completion time August 2020. We'll see... Good luck everyone! And thank you for your insights, opinions, encouragement, and good humor over the past 14+ months. --Noom and David

    2020- US Passport & Card Application-Tracker

    1) Did you all apply through USPS? YES I used the passport form filler tool at https://pptform.state.gov/ to complete my form couple of days before my oath (DO NOT SIGN IT !!!). I also got my passport picture (Walgreens), went to a post office for two money orders (one for 216.48 for the Dept. of State, one for 35 for the USPS office, aka "acceptance facility"), made a copy of front and back of my driver license. Made an appointment online for an USPS office close to my home, same day as oath, about six hours after oath time (I think I got a 02:00 PM appt.) Then after the oath I went back home, used my multifunction printer to make a couple copies of my naturalization certificate, put it all together. Went to appt. Couple in front of me were filling the DS-11 in front of me (took them forever, and kept asking questions), they didn't know you can't pay with a credit card, total poopshow. In my case, I gave the guy my DS-11, the naturalization certificate, the copy, my driver license, DL copy, passport picture, and the two money orders. Guy checked DS-11 to make sure it was all OK (it was), asked me to sign it, asked me if I had made another copy of the certificate "just in case", told me to endorse the two MOs (one to "Department of State", the other to "USPS" or something like that), stapled it all together, gave me a receipt (on which he even wrote down the number I had to call if I haven't heard from the DoS in three weeks), bid me farewell. Time it took for the process (not including wait for the couple to be done) - about three minutes, if that. 2) Also can we do expedite at USPS even though i don't have travel plan right away? YES Just either buy then and there a MO for the total amount (for PP + PP card + expedite + 1/2 days return == 217.13 as of 02/15/2020) and another one for $35 for the execution fee, or take your checkbook with you and write two checks. If you go down the MO path: you can't pay for a MO using a credit card, it has to either be cash or a debit card. I did the expedite because between the $725 app + bio fee, pictures, etc - paying less than $ 80 was absolutely worth it in my opinion. As usual, YMMV. 3) Is it worth paying the extra $60 or should i just do the regular one and wait. I talked about it on #2 before. It's up to you. Applying for expedite also means you'll certificate will be back in your possession with a couple of weeks - and remember, you surrender you green card at the oath, so if you send your naturalization certificate for the passport, you're left with nothing actually proving your status. Yes, they can check - still. Also, you don't have any document to, as an example, change your SS record - again, you'll have to wait longer to do that too.
