Can a K1 Visa do remote work while AOS and EAD pending?

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for advice regarding doing remote work for a Non-US company. I'm considering joining and getting jobs at a project based website similar to Odesk. I just mailed my AOS packet including my application for an EAD.

Can anyone advise me how I can go about doing this? AM I ALLOWED to do this? Or can anyone share what they did to earn any sort of income while waiting for their green card and EAD? I'm not looking to build a lucrative career here, I just don't like asking my husband for money for small things like a shaver or feminine products.

Does anyone know how long it might take for one embassy to transfer a case file to another?

As of July 21st, CEAC is showing "Transfer in Progress" for our visa case, which is being transferred from the Philippines to Hong Kong.

Just curious if anyone who has had their case transferred in the past knows how long it takes to get from point A to point B.

Foreign earned income exclusion for foreign spouse under MFJ

Hi all,

If I am to file a MFJ return to include my foreign spouse's income in my tax return, is she eligible for claiming foreign earned income exclusion (FEIE)? The IRS website said FEIE is only available for those meeting the below criteria. Does she qualify the below when I file MFJ and treat her as if she is a resident alien?

  • A U.S. citizen who is a bona fide resident of a foreign country or countries for an uninterrupted period that includes an entire tax year,
  • A U.S. resident alien who is a citizen or national of a country with which the United States has an income tax treaty in effect and who is a bona fide resident of a foreign country or countries for an uninterrupted period that includes an entire tax year, or
  • A U.S. citizen or a U.S. resident alien who is physically present in a foreign country or countries for at least 330 full days during any period of 12 consecutive months.

Unsure if any of you has filed Form 2555 for FEIE for your spouse before. Grateful if you could share your experience, thanks!

Hi all,

Just noted that the processing dates under I-130 cases only included those for CSC and VSC but the rest of the service centers are missing. Is it just because the VJ team is currently updating the same? Thanks! Link to VJ processing dates: https://www.visajourney.com/timeline/

After AOS Interview

Hi everyone,

Me and my husband have just come back from our AOS interview. The officer didn't say if we are approved right after the interview, she just said we will receive the decision notice through mail.

My questions are:

1. Is this normal? I thought we will know the result right the way.

2. Is she supposed to give us any document or receipt after the interview? such as saying we have completed the interview on xx/xx/xxxx?

Can anyone share your post-AOS interview experience?

Thank you so much!
