    Good Luck! Be sure to get a good night's sleep and take everything you might think you'll need to prove your relationship. Tell the truth no matter what and above all be positive! Allah knows what is in your heart so have faith in that!

    worth_the_wait got a reaction from Musashii in Interview question   
    I think the biggest piece of advice I can give you is BE HONEST about EVERYTHING! If you met online, say so. If you live together, say so. If she has or hasn't met your family, say so. The red flags and complications come when they raise questions and you answer them in a manner that makes them question your answer. Do not be afraid to tell your story and elaborate on points that will reinforce your answers.
    Best of Luck to you!

    worth_the_wait got a reaction from Deb+Steve in Affidavit of support employer letter   
    I would check again with the HR Department. This is not an uncommon request. Many people ask for proof of emplyment for buying homes and other things. So they SHOULD be willing to provide this document to you without too much effort. Especially since he, the employee, is requesting it. It isn't too much their business why he needs it. He is employed there and does earn a salary so that is what he needs to request the letter include.
    Good Luck!

    It may be very difficult to ascertain 2011 TAX papers at his time in January, simply, no banks, employers or investment firms provide the 1099R, w2 so early in the year. You will need to wait at a minimum end of January / early Feb to collect all papers and file your 2011 returns. Then, it would make sense to provide this info. to the embassy, else, having 2010,2009 and 2008 IRS transcripts from IRS would suffice.

    Winnings, I know that the 3yrs u mention should b enough,but there is no telling wht the embassy will decide to ask u for thats y i was advising Kim to send that to her fiance, Mohsin had his interview in Nov,and early December, the embassy called him and told him that they need 2011 tax papers, he told them that wouldnt b available untill later in 2012, they said to him we will wait,, they already had 2008,2009 and 2010 from myself and co-sponsor,, i did manage to obtain 2011 tax papers, but I had to go into the IRS office and get it done,, As for Kim she can have that cuz all she have to do id file early, their interview is at the end of the Feb,,my advise is for them to have that handy, to avoid delays.

    Mohsin,
    Actually the embassy does have the right to ask for tax returns dating back more than 3 yrs only if it's deemed the petitioner's financial responsibility may be questionable in terms solid income history, funds. As long as income level of the petitioner is over the required for example $35,000 year or above, then, the 3 yrs of taxes is fine. When the income levels are bordering the minimum or below, which I don't recall the exact income, then, they have to make sure and check the income history ( 4 yrs ) and make sure the average weights more than minimum requirement. Even then, the embassy will likely scrutinize the application process.
    If the K1 interview will be in February or March, then, yes, it would be great to provide a completed 2011 Tax return as evidence especially, if the petitioner's income went up so prove a more solid case.

    I also served in the miliary and did a tour to each Iraq and Afghanistan. My experience left me feeling a respect for those international people. They are very kind and were always willing to open their doors and city offices to us to have dynamic discussions about thier country and what their hopes were for their future. Problem isn't that the common people don't want change problem is that they don't have the money to make it happen. Just to run for a political office you either have to be very wealthy or come from a very wealthy family. Sooo the common citizen did what they could to survive. Because of this, when it comes time to vote, they have no choice but to make a selection to which they try to decide who is the least corrupt person.
    Many pray for a better future. They put their cares in Allah's hands because they have no other means to achieve their hopes and dreams.
    Each and every Muslim that I have had the opportunity to speak with expressed gratitude for our efforts and embarrassment for the way the extremeists used Islam as a shield to hide behind their actions which in reality are a far cry from what Islam teaches.
    I also fought for the freedoms we enjoy as Americans and among those freedoms is the freedom of speech. I believe that everyone is entitled to thier own opinion and expression. This has been an interesting thread to read thru.

    "The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind." - William James.
    So whatever happens, youll get through it with a fight and a smile!
    To gain experience you have to step out of your comfort zone. Soon that space will be your comfort zone and you will have to step out of that zone as well to grow.
    Sometimes youre pushed outside your own comfortzone by someone else and instead of being depressed, See it as a challenge!
    Change your attitude and change your life !
    See the small things in life and love them.
