Hey all,

I am trying to decide whether I should try to transfer my fianc s ready K1 Visa from the Barbados embassy (because they're still closed completely- or so they say), to Jamaica embassy. I have been told it might be possible, however there is a significant backlog. Is anyone else on here ready at either embassy and can give me some idea of timeline?

Help - distraught for family, need advice [merged threads]

I ve posted on here about my family situation before seeking advice for family who are out of status.

TW: physical assault.

My sister is out of status (came to US as a child and was left here by parent, now an adult) and lives with boyfriend (American). Yesterday I had to get her a hotel room for the night because he physically assaulted her. She came home to a woman in their bed and when confronted, he punched her. I m proud of her for packing her things and leaving. She later confessed that he has been beating her for a year. I m sick to my stomach. She lives in Florida and I live in Texas. I m a green card holder.

Some research led me to her filing for the U visa (another family member has mentioned applying for this visa as well but I wasn t familiar with it). I guess I just want some advice about helping her. I encouraged her to file a police report in the morning. I offered to fly her here to Texas so we can figure out what to do. I don t care if I have to take care of her while we figure it out. Can she apply for U visa from here in Texas? Even though the abuse occurred in Florida? Please share any advice you have.

I have a couple of questions. My cousin loves in the Caribbean. He asked if I could Co-sponsor his application with his current girlfriend/future wife. She s an American but has been living in the BVI for the last 6 years. She hasn t filed US taxes since she left. Can she still marry and file for him and have me Co-sponsor or does she have to file 1st? What s the process?

VERY tough situation - filing for siblings

I have a big dilemma and I would really appreciate some grace amidst the blunt responses I m already expecting. I know this situation is not at all easy and might lead to a dead end but the least I can do is try.

I am a permanent resident, planning to apply for citizenship next year. You can check my timeline but long story short I was on a student visa and got married, then adjusted my status. Husband and I just bought our first house.

Here s the sticky situation: my 3 siblings were brought to the US on tourist visas by my dad and left with my grandmother. They were all under the age of 18. My grandmother put two of them into public school. She claimed that she was applying for their papers but refused to give anyone information about what exactly she did. Nothing came of it. At the time I was living with a friend in my home country. I moved to Texas for school but my siblings are in New York.

It s been 7 years and 2 of the 3 are now over the age of 18 and can t work or go to school. They re completely helpless and I do what I can to help them out but they depend on my grandma for everything. Up until now I really had no idea what to do to help.

Does anyone think it would be possible for me to sponsor them? Can they adjust status after being out of status for this long? Would I be able to sponsor them from a different state?

I know I will def need a lawyer for this case but any advice would help. I m trying to be a big sister considering our parents failed us.

We had out interview today at the San Antonio office. We got there at 9:20 and it was packed but moving quickly. Our interview was scheduled for 9:45 and we were called in around 10:00. The officer was a nice man who chatted with us about small things like my husbands veteran status. Very short interview with basic questions:
- full names
- parents names
- place of birth
- where do you work
- spouses full name and birthday
- how we knew each other
- what we loved about one another (I cried when this question came up and I spoke about how loving and patient and caring my husband is for going through this whole process with me... looking back I m a bit embarrassed but oh well)
- a lot of I485 have you ever questions
The officer then asked to see our photos and evidence that we lived and were together. Asked who was in one group photo and asked who the baby was in another. He asked for joint bank account statements and also took a copy of our updated lease. He asked us if we planned on starting a family soon.
He then said he was going to recommend us for approval and pass it onto his supervisor to have the last say.
Outlined how to go about getting conditions removed and applying for citizenship. He even suggested that since I m young I could go back to school and do a lot of things for myself as a citizen. By 10:25 we were walking out of the office and at 11:15 I got multiple text updates stating that my new card was being produced. smile.gif Overall 5/5 experience.
