Thank You VJ - From Beginning to End!

I don't normally post, but I just had to come and send a great big THANK YOU to the VJ Community! 7 years ago, I went to see a lawyer to inquire about the K1 Visa process. That lawyer quoted me over $3,000 to help me with the K1 and Adjustment of Status paperwork; I just knew there had to be a way that I could do it on my own.

Well, with some research, I stumbled across Visa Journey and I found the confidence to do this process by myself, by remembering to READ, be HONEST, and TIMELY with all things immigration related. As a result, yesterday marked the end of our journey as my husband took his oath and officially became a United States Citizen.

Though a lot of details aren't needed and you can see our full journey in my signature, here's a recap of our journey, done entirely by ourselves and without paying any money for assistance:

1. K1 Visa filed May 2017

2. Fianc entered the United States June 2018 and we married August 2018

3. Adjustment of Status filed August 2018

4. Green Card issued February 2019

5. Removal of Conditions filed December 2020

6. Permanent Residency Granted January 2022

7. Citizenship Application filed September 2022

8. Citizenship Interview - February 2023

9. Oath Taken - June 2023

At each step of the process, I came here to read the experience of others and join forums of those going through the process at the same time. The members of the VJ community are an invaluable resource and I just wanted to say thank you and to encourage all of you still in the process that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Have faith and patience, and it will happen in its own time.

I-130 for Stepchild

My husband's greencard application was approved earlier this week. I would now like to start the petition for his 5 year old son. The child does not have a passport. I read somewhere that the passport is not necessary until the NVC stage. Is that true? Or do we need to have his passport in order to file the I-130? Any info you can offer would be helpful. Thanks so much!

Good afternoon!

I recently submitted an expedite request. Within an hour I received an e-mail confirming that I requested expedite and stating that "Your case is currently being adjudicated. You should receive a notice of action* soon." Has anyone else ever received this message? If so, how long after did you get a decision?

“Additional evidence you may want to provide” under 5 year rule

I searched Google and the VJ forum but everything recent is about the 3 year rule for N-400 Additional evidence you may want to provide section. My wife and I have been married for 7 years in two weeks and she is now applying for her citizenship. We are doing it under the 5 year rule as it seems less is required and it was suggested to do so on a recent post in a different thread.

The question is: what, if any, evidence should be put in this section with the 5 year rule in mind?

Our two kids birth certificates are already uploaded, marriage certificate is uploaded, all other required documents. Is there anything else that may assist her with good standing or expedition or anything? Example: I served in the army for the last 10 years. Does my honorable discharge paperwork look good for her application? Proof of her working and going to school to show she is a productive member of society? Or am I overthinking this and there is nothing else really needed since it is not the 3 year rule?

Emma says my case is "in process"

Good afternoon,

I chatted online with Emma today and asked if our case had been assigned to an agent. She said that the status was "in process" and that meant an agent was reviewing the file. Does this have any significance? Is it a good sign that an agent has been assigned? My tracker still says 7 months. We are at the California Service Center. I am SOO anxious about this process. Thanks!
