K1 or spousal visa for Croatian citizen
5:44 pm November 1, 2022

I live in the US and my fianc is residing in Croatia. The plan is for him to become an American citizen and stay in the US, however, he and I are stuck as how to proceed with this. We ve been debating whether or not we should do the K1 visa or the spousal visa. We are leaning more towards getting married in Croatia and then going through with the spousal visa, yet we don t know the steps to take to achieve this. What are the pros and cons for both K1 and spousal visa? Croatia requires my documents to be legally translated to Croatian. Is it best to just hire a lawyer for this kind of thing? Thanks in advance for your help!

I know sometimes it delays the oath when you request a name change, I was wondering if anyone from NY based FOs requested a name change, and how long it took for the oath to be scheduled? Thank you in advance

Diversity visa selected for family, but husband denied due to criminal record
8:14 am November 1, 2021

I have a big problem with our case if someone could help. My family applied for a diversity visa and we were randomly chosen this year. 3 of us received a diversity visa and my husband was denied. We were supposed to enter the States by Sept 9th and we did not do that because of my husband. We have a 7 year old daughter and 1 year old son.

The reason why my husband was rejected is that he had a criminal record about 13,14 years ago for selling drugs. But the thing is that his brother was selling drugs and in order to lower his brother's sentence, my husband went to jail because of him. The sentence was at least 3 years and my husband received 1 year and because of good behavior, they let him go out from prison after nine months. His brother was in jail for 3 years. So, every time we apply for a tourist visa, he gets denied. We did that twice and we told the truth but at the interview at the American embassy, they just reject his visa. The same thing happened with a Diversiy visa. So my question is will he ever be able to enter the us and what steps we need to do to make it work? I was really in shock this past summer because for them, he is criminal and we do not know how to change this. We even sent several emails to the Embassy and asked them many questions such as will he ever be able to enter? After how many years but the never replied to us. If we can get any advice, i would really appreciate it.

I lived in Gainesville, Florida for my high school education and i have a diploma from the Rochester institute of technology, in hotel and resort industry. Now, I work for the reservations office for sheraton and the westin hotel chains. My husband works in sales for British american tobacco.

Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thank you

I-864 RFE tax return transcripts, bank statements questions
12:46 am October 14, 2021

Hi everyone! We got an RFE stating that it could not be determined if the petitioner qualifies for I-864. We found a joint sponsor. I have a couple of questions.

1. We are resending last three years of tax return transcripts for the petitioner, and are including last three years of tax return transcripts for our joint sponsor, who is not married. Are tax return transcripts from the IRS website enough without adding W2s either for the petitioner or for the joint sponsor?

2. Just to double check, for the I-864 Part 6 questions 24a, 24b, 24c, we use the Total Income line from the tax transcripts from the first section Income, and not the Adjusted Gross Income line from the next section Adjustments to Income?

3. We included 12 months of bank statements for the petitioner's assets. We found conflicting answers whether to include all the pages of each bank statement (generic info, card transactions...) or just the relevant ones. We decided to include all of them, since each bank statement is numbered, so we assume leaving something out would be submitting incomplete documents. It can't hurt, right?

Thank you!

Change embassy on NVC stage

Hello everyone,

we sent our application back in October 2020 (sent Oct 29th and NOA1 date is Nov 2nd 2020). We are still waiting for our NOA2 that might be in the next 2-3 weeks. I am croatian living and working in Germany (hence why we put Germany as our whised interview destination in our I129f). Because of the backlog in Frankfurt, I would like to transfer our case to the embassy in Croatia. I already contacted them to see if they want to take my case when the time comes and they responded me that they don t see any problem with it. I also contacted NVC because I was not sure what else do I need to do except contacting croatian embassy, but the only answer I got from them was :"Thank you for your inquiry. Our records do not show that we received your petition."

Do you guys have any idea what should I do?

Thanks a lot in advance. :)
