F2B approved but how long of a wait at NVC?
3:22 pm March 23, 2023

Hello everyone I have a bit of a pickle here and need help figuring it out.

In October 2017 my father applied for me through an I-130 for Unmarried son over 21. We made a case inquiry about it in 2021 and my father just received a letter stating our case would be expedited since it is now outside of normal processing time (been abou 66 months). I called USCIS and they indeed confirmed this and that we would have news within a week.

Fast foward to 2022 and my fiance and I decied to apply for a I-129F (K1) in August.

If my case were to get approved for the I-130 would I still have to wait a very very, very long time at NVC to get processed? or does getting expedited at USCIS for an I-130 also expedite you at NVC?

I want to know because if that's the case it would be best to stick with the K1 for speed in processing rather than have to wait another 1-2 years more for NVC for my I-130.

My second question is, if my father were to change his status from PR to Citizen would that speed up the process at NVC in any way? He's been studying for it and might take the exam soon.

Any input is greatly appreciated!

E2 VIsa Clarity

Hey guys,

I've been researching online about the requirements for an E-2 Visa for investment.

For some strange reason there's absolutely nothing regarding having an American Spouse. The law for said visa states that the applicant must either be from a treaty country or have a spouse that's a citizen from any of the countries on the treaty list. However there is 0 information as to if having a United States Citizen as a spouse counts.

Can someone share some insight on this?

Thank you!

Getting a K-1 Visa fastest?

Hey guys,

I'm new here and I've been reading through the forum for some input from individuals on going the K-1 route.

My fiance and I are just about ready to file for the K-1 this coming week. We're just wanting to make sure this would be the fastest route to be together. We've been seeing through several apps and facebook groups that this is the case as the processing backlog is almost null with cases from as early as December 2021 already being processed. We want to be together as quickly as possible and the financial aspect would not be a factor for me since I own a company here in South America and make passive income. I would be easily able to support and maintain us for 2 whole years if needed. I also know that if I bring my driver's license I can trade it in for an international driver's license once within the US so driving is not another issue for me.

I'm just asking for some input from people since they keep claiming IR-1 and CR-1 are the way to go, our only issue is that we cannot get married as she cannot travel due to work and having 2 small children (Which I am dying to live with and yes we've met already in person, have lots of proof etc).

Would greatly appreciate some input from you guys,

Thank you!

Requesting Mother after adjustment via different visa was denied

My mother had a U-Visa and applied for adjustment of status about 3 years ago. My brother, who at the time was 16, was on the application with her.

She had a pro-bono immigration lawyer helping her and waived all her fees since she was under poverty guidelines when she applied. She missed an RFE on her case due to her lawyer not communicating in time and her case was denied recently. However, my brother who was also on the application was approved and he has his green card now. It's been over 10 months of sending letters to USCIS for appeal, sending RFE requested docs and requesting reopening the case to no avail. They do not respond at all. The lawyer told her to reapply but she will now have to pay all fees including lawyer fees since she has a better job now. (earning 25k a year ?). I did all my own paperwork for my adjustment of status and citizenship and never needed a lawyer. Since she had a special visa, she had to do it with a lawyer. However, my question is, since her case was denied, can't I just file paperwork to adjust her as a parent of a U.S Citizen over the age of 21? Would the denial of adjustment due to a missed RFE impact her applying though a family member instead? By the way, the RFE was something trivial like a copy of her passport page, I say trivial because she sent it in the initial application so maybe they just lost it. I could save all the lawyer fees, do the paperwork myself and just pay the filing fees. The lawyer is quoting her about $5,000.

Thank you in advance.

My girlfriend and I have a K1 process going. We got the first notification in August of 2021. Is there any rule against working remotely for a US based company? She would be working for this company in her country, while visiting the USA, and during the K1 and green card process.
