Unable to find divorce decree in 1991 Cambodia
4:44 pm March 30, 2024

Hello VJ friends,

I am a green card holder. I received my green card through my US citizen daughter from my first marriage. I lam looking to sponsor my spouse from Cambodia to the USA. This is my second marriage we got married since 2000 and have two kids together. However, I am not able to find the record of my divorce decree from my first marriage in 1990s. I lost it and the court also did not have any data over 30 years a go. I don't even remember the date of the first marriage or the date of divorce. I don't even remember my ex husband's birthday. I only can provide estimate. My question is how do we provide the proof of marriage termination to the USCIS or the US Embassy in Cambodia when we file i-130 and DS-260? Is there an alternative or explanation I can provide? Any suggestion is highly appreciated.

Misplaced my wife's Green Card 48-month extension letter. How can I get a replacement?
6:18 pm March 15, 2024

My wife's 2-year Green Card expired in January 2023.

She applied for Removal of Conditions in October 2022.

At first, she received an I-797 (NOA) with a 24-month extension period to her residency status.

We still have a copy of the 24-month I-797 and used it when we traveled abroad last year.

Later, she received another I-797 with a 48-month extension period to her residency status.

Unfortunately, I misplaced that I-797.

Originally, I thought this wouldn't matter because VisaJourney was estimating that her Removal of Conditions application would be processed by June 2024, which means that the original 24-month extension would be sufficient until she received her new 10-year Green Card.

However, VisaJourney is now estimating that her Removal of Conditions application will not be processed until July 2025 (!), which is AFTER her 24-month extension expires. This means that we NEED to get another copy of her 48-month extension letter which I misplaced.

Problem is I have no idea how to get a replacement copy. I tried calling the USCIS phone number, but I was only able to speak to an automated bot who had no idea how to help me, and refused to connect me to a live person.

Does anyone on here know what I need to do to get a replacement copy of the 48-month extension letter?

Thank you!

How to Move Household Goods from China to the US? (US Citizen Going Home)
4:38 pm February 27, 2024

Hello everyone,

We are a couple currently living and working in China. I m a Chinese citizen. My husband is a US citizen from Texas. He has worked in China for about 9 years. We ve been together for over 5 years and got married in the US last year when outbound travel from China resumed. My husband finished two master s degrees over the last few years and has finally decided to pursue a doctor s degree back in the US.

While still considering school offers, we have started research on international moving. I ve approached several professional international moving companies and they all provided quotes that seem exorbitant and somewhat opaque. (I ll share more details about our moving needs and the quotes received below.)

So I thought why not try booking a container directly with shipping companies, and my husband should be able to apply for free entry of the household goods as a returning US citizen. I ve checked some articles online and the US Customs and Border Protection s (CBP) website, and learned about the Form 3299 "Declaration For Free Entry of Unaccompanied Articles".

Unfortunately, I haven t found any step-by-step guidance on the import process. I d really appreciate it if anyone can shed some light on questions such as:

  • What is the customs clearance process like?
  • When do we need to fill out/submit the form?
  • How will we be notified?
  • How should we list the things shipped in the form? Specifically, the form only has limited rows? Do we describe multiple items in one cell?
  • Part IV involves the carrier. How is their input involved?
  • Are there any other critical things that we should pay attention to?

I have contacted several shipping companies. So far most said they didn t accept non-business customers, but I did find a couple that did. I m waiting for more detailed quotes from them. Is there anyone who has handled international moving this way before? What kind of shipping companies should I look for? Any recommendations?

Thank you
