Immigration from F1 Visa / EAD processing time
11:28 pm June 6, 2019

Hi there,

I am new to this whole thing so please bare with me.

My case is a little unique, I guess. I've been in the US on a F1 Visa for 3 years and met my now Wife. I looked through the processing times here on this homepage and the average waiting time for a EAD sits around 142 days which I exceeded by quite a bit now, sitting at 175 days.

Long story short. I had an EAD for my OPT from the F1 Visa, which expired a month ago.

My wife and I filed for my Family based immigration on December 13th 2018 and got NOA1 on December 20th 2018. I have the I-130, I-131, I-765, I-485 on file and the I-693 in my hands.

Anyhow it's been 175 days since the case was received and I did my fingerprints on January 11th 2019.

I have been trying to get a straight answer from USCIS but that didn't go so well.

My point is that I need to get back to work not only because of financial reasons, also because of recency and currency requirements as I am in a human transportation and operation of equipment which need a special set of skills.

Is there anybody out there who has an idea how I can accelerate this process or get a straight answer on how long it might take?

I also have an immigration lawyer on my side but the only thing I keep hearing is that I have to wait and be patient. ;) "GREAT"

Anyways, thank you to all of you reading through this and taking the time

Apply for new jobs while ROC is pending

Good morning,

I filed my ROC back in September 2017 and have yet to receive my new green card.

While that is frustrating in itself, I find myself unhappy at my current job and would like to apply for new jobs.

I understand that my dream job at the post office requires me to have my conditions removed before I can apply, but am I allowed to apply for a new job and what would I use to prove I am a legal resident simply waiting for my new card?

The 12 month extension letter expired in September and I never received a new 18 month one (but since it has been more than 18 months anyways, it doesn't matter).

Thanks in advance!

As we re doing taxes, my father in law and I are having an argument!

Little back story, My US-Citizen husband and I lived in my homecountry from November 2016-November 2018

We both worked there and are now about to do our taxes jointly!

My question now is: Do I have to include my(Non-US Citizen)foreign earned income? Money that I earned BEFORE immigrating to the US in November 2018?

Thanks in Advance

HELP! Traveled outside country+received new Green Card back home

Hi everyone, I received my new Green Card while visiting my family abroad.

What should I do now- will I get denied boarding tomorrow?

The woman from the airline told me to type in the information of the old document that I have with me and not the new information about my newly arrived Green Card back home.

I m just so confused and don't want trouble at the airport.

I will print copies of my new Green Card and take it with me. Let's see...

Does anyone of you have experience with this? Did you get sent your Green Card when you were abroad? What happened to you?

K1 Visa and Vaccinations

Hi everyone,

My fianc recently pulled his vaccination records from his childhood doctor to consult with his current doctor on what s needed. We are proactively doing this to avoid extra fees at the medical appointment for the interview.

His current doctor compared them (his list from childhood & the requirements on the embassy site) and it appears he needs to get 7 vaccinations!? I can t imagine the medical before the interview would give that many at once.

That seems a bit excessive but I m hoping others can help shed light and the best way to do this. Thanks!
