    Roosha got a reaction from Lisa_ in Now married but what tax do you file when spouse is in visa provess   
    Katherinn it would be better for you to start your own thread about this. But no, you shouldn't file as single as you're not single. The easiest way to file your taxes is to check "married filling separately" then you don't need an ITIN or a SSN for your spouse. Just write NRA in the box where you're supposed to write their SSN. You won't get as big a refund, but a lot of people will just amend the tax return once their spouse arrives in the states and has a SSN in order to get the extra money if there is any.
    The only time you are considered "unmarried" when married to an alien spouse is if you're filing as Head of Household. But then you'd have to have a dependent other than your spouse and a SSN or ITIN for that dependent. HTH and Good Luck!

    Roosha got a reaction from Darnell in Transferred to San Diego Field Office when I live in Belgium   
    You need to make sure your case is actually in San Diego b/c you can't trust operators at USCIS, even Tier 2 ones. Do you have someone who can make an infopass appt for you? They can go check on the file. If it truly is at San Diego I suggest you go straight to congressman/senator, don't even try to go through avenues in USCIS, you'll waste time and they'll just screw up your file even more.
    Lastly, call USCIS and ask them what address they have on file for you, the petitioner. If it's the Belgium address there's very little probability that your file was sent to San Diego and the USCIS operator is an idiot. If the address is in the US, then you might have a problem

    Qatar Airways is one of the best, I love flying with them when I can. Very good airline, too bad all their rates are a LOT more expensive when you buy from Qatar!
    So we're back.....AND APPROVED!! YAAAAAAAAAAAY
    At the end of the interview the woman who interviewed us said they're going to keep the passport and they'll call in a couple of weeks, when visa is ready. I was like couple? you mean two? and she's like well it usually doesn't take that long, probably this week max next. So I asked whether there was any more processing and she told me about paperwork and stuff that we might have to complete at POE but no more processing from their side. That means no AP right? I mean I feel like I can't celebrate until I see that visa stamped in his passport!!

    Yes, that's exactly right. Except it doesn't matter who does what step The USC could send in the IV packet but the IV Packet is all about the beneficiary so it's usually easier for the beneficiary to deal with IV packet and for the petitioner to deal with the AOS packet. Oh, and the petitioner has to pay all the fees since in order to pay online the money has to come out of a US bank, you can't use overseas accounts.

    You won't get a checklist for them, but you also run the risk of not getting them back at the interview.
    Sending photocopies doesn't confuse the workers at NVC, uscis, or the consulate. If you don't want to send copies, don't send copies. There's really no reason to be so upset about this.

    You do realize that until a year ago USC living overseas could file with the embassy in that country and get a visa for their spouse in as little as 1-2 months? USCIS changed that and now all files are sent to the states for adjudication. Maybe that's why.
    Whatever the reason it's really the least thing you should be worried and/or complaining about. What is it your business why people get approved faster, concentrate on your own petition b/c trust me these bad vibes aren't going to get you anywhere. Karma's a B!&%h, don't ever forget that.

    you should take everything you've submitted from the beginning of the application to the interview. BUT all you have to do is make copies of each packet before you send it. You don't need to order more transcripts or have your husband fill out another i-864, just make copies before they're sent and take those copies with you to the interview.

    Are you F***ing kidding me?!? Who are you to say who should take longer to get processed? And how many times has it been mentioned that overseas filers make up a TINY percentage of immigration that it doesn't even affect the process for anyone else? Or are we just looking for a punching bag?
    Also? Their, NOT "there"; theirs NOT "there's". Are you sure you live in the states?

    Here is another prime example as to why only MATURE ADULTS should marry or become engaged. There was a recent person who started a mini-war with a similar topic about how other people are being processed faster than them and they feel entitled to being approved after only waiting 1-2 months. Look, everyone has to wait, some less, some more depending on the circumstances. If USCIS/NVC process someone's case faster than yours, they have their reasons, whether they file from abroad or not. Mind your own business and concentrate on your normal daily life rather than being bitter on those people. If you married/got engaged to someone from another country, then that person must have really had something special that you saw in them. THEN WAIT FOR THEM. GOODNESS. If you whine about how other people are processed faster and how you don't want to wait "a year", then why did you get involved with someone who is required to go through this process in the first place? Pick and choose your battles.
    Lately, too many people are whining about the wait times when they've only waited 1-2 months into the process. It's time to grow up and have patience.

    Roosha got a reaction from Asia in The Hartford Office Sent my unapproved I-130 to Copenhagen   
    What I think? Do nothing. This petition still has to be approved by the Hartford office, sent back to NBC, THEN sent to NVC. At which time you'll probably already have your interview scheduled in Stockholm. You need an approved I-130 and you don't know what's going to happen with London, so you never know this might be a good back up plan. Let them both play out and see what happens. They shouldn't cross paths so the offices shouldn't be confusing each other if that's what you're worried about. Its obvious that Hartford has no idea what London is doing and vice versa. Just leave it be.
