Marrying under VWP

I plan on visiting my boyfriend for the first time under the Visa Waiver Program. I would stay with him over the summer and leave before the 90 day period. We've discussed getting married in the US and filing for a CR-1 (there would be no adjustment of status needed from VWP to CR-1 since I'll be going back home). Considering this is going to be my first ever visit, is there any downside to us going this route? Are we going to have any issues, even if I didn't overstay the VWP? I've done quite some research on this topic, but I'm still a bit sceptical. Any opinion or advice will help.

Received RFE for I-751, had a child since, is that convincing enough?

Hi, we filed an I-751 back in Feb 2018 and received an RFE recently. I'm petitioning my wife.

We've had a child since filing initially and wanted to submit the birth certificate as well as a photo of us with the baby as new evidence. Is having proof of bearing a child "good enough" for the USCIS? Some of our other evidence may have been insufficient for a variety of reasons:

- We don't have a joint bank account at the moment

- My wife isn't listed on our lease (there were income implications that would have complicated things)

- She has a government issued state ID but it has our old address

Among the things they claimed about the evidence:

- Credit card statement does not show who actually made the transactions. As I understand it, my bank, Citi, doesn't distinguish transactions from card holder and authorized users

- Employee benefits printout showing her as beneficiary is vague

- Partial 2016 joint tax return not showing that it was processed by the IRS

So what I want to submit in the next packet are:

- Child's birth certificate

- Picture of us and child

- Screenshot of summary of benefits from my company's intraweb showing her as a beneficiary on a number of benefits

- Photocopies of our state IDs with a notation that her's lists our old address (renewal is not contingent on address change in NY)

- Photocopies of explanation of benefit notices for her and myself from our primary health care provider showing her name and our current address

- IRS transcript of 2018 tax return processing

I'm hoping that the birth of our child is sufficient evidence on its own among some of these others proving our ongoing marriage. Is there anything else I should provide to strengthen our case?

How soon after receiving your first Green card you can ask for citizenship?

Hi everyone,

I'm just wondering , when is the first time you can file in paperwork for citizenship?

How much time since your first green card (the one you get for a year or two)?

I'm just asking since I'm so over fighting with some people from my EU country, who besides thinking that money grows on trees think that I can ask for citizenship within a year or two. My mother talked to some church lady,who is an American and she said I can already ask for it,while i was still waiting for AOS. I told her that's ridiculous that it's most likely at least 5 if not even 10 or more years of living on a green card before you can ask for citizenship? I'm talking about green card through K1 process.

Then I'm also wondering that if I apply for citizenship will I need to give up my EU citizenship or will I have 2 passports?

Thank you for your info.

Wish you a beautiful day <3

Hi everyone,

So another way to ask: how many days, weeks did you wait for green card to finally arrived into your mail box?

Thank you

1-Year CR1 visa

Hi.

I have married a US Citizen in January 2017. We have applied for CR1 visa (via consular process) in February 2017, which was issued by local embassy in January 2018 and I entered the US in February.

The catch is, that visa states "Upon endorsement serves as temporary I-555 evidencing permeant residence for 1 year" and that the stamp the CBP officer applied to my passport states expiry date in February 2019.

The office also told be I have to apply for removal of conditionality within 90 dates before this date.

But all the internet sites and forums I have checked state that CR1 should be valid for 2 years and that I should apply for removal of conditionality within 90 dates before 2 years pass.

Thus I am uncertainty about my exact status and when should I undertake further steps.
