    SusieQQQ reacted to Going through in I130 Case Denied after sending RFE | f2a & f2b   
    A letter/receipt that one of you has paid for a DNA test is a bit useless since there are no DNA results to show on that letter for them to further process your case.  Also, as you said, you haven't done a DNA test yet ----- only one party has so far, with no results back yet.
    Hopefully the 2 other affidavits sent in are not "boilerplate" like the other ones (as was stated on the RFE you received regarding the past affidavits sent in).
     Nikah nama of the parents is not evidence that establishes parent-child biology since you weren't born at the time of your parents' ceremony...but will be perhaps useful when matching up to school records, child medical records, etc.
    Photos are not evidence of parent-child biology---even if you are the spitting image of them.
     
    USCIS needs the DNA test results---which were not sent in with the appeal.  They are generally not in the habit of putting aside the case and just waiting for the results to get to them later on (when they clearly only gave 30 days for you to appeal with the evidence they needed).  It will be interesting to see what they do with the "evidence" you submitted at this point, and it's always good to have a Plan B---so you should be prepared to refile all over again.  On the plus side, you'll have the DNA results back by then to go forward with a new filing, if that's what happens in the end.
     
    If you have to refile/when you do refile---I would suggest seeking out the advice of a new lawyer.

    SusieQQQ got a reaction from neilsqueen in How hard is it to bring someone from Ghana to the USA on a tourist visa?   
    Well.. slightly. Ghana I believe also has a pretty high rate of refusals for fiancé visas. 
    It’s not something to be pressured into so he can visit (and as someone who reads these forums a lot, that’s already a red flag to me). If you sponsor him for a fiancé visa and marry him, you are on the hook for the affidavit of support even if you split up later, so make sure you know what you are getting into. Rather offer to go visit him in Ghana if he can’t get a visitor visa here, than sponsor a fiancé visa. For that, wait until you are absolutely certain you want to marry him.

    Be sure to try show the interviewing officer evidence that you will be returning home (such as continued registration at university/need to write exams to get your degree) - but be aware that the officer may or may not look at any of that. Algeria has a 44% refusal rate for visit visas, and young single people are often at a disadvantage to show proper ties home, so also be realistic that there is a possibility you may be denied.

    SusieQQQ reacted to geowrian in Need advice on Visa/Marriage   
    Option 1) Stay in the US and file for AOS. More expensive option, and she cannot work or leave the US (and return) without an EAD or AP respectively. Those take ~4-7 months. She needs to have or be able to obtain all necessary documents while in the US (i.e. birth certificate and such).
    Edit: Note this is basically a one-and-done - she can't leave the US to close up ties then come back on the VWP again with intent to file for AOS (plus it sounds like they may not even admit her again).
     
    Option 2) She leaves prior to the 90 days and interviews for the appropriate visa abroad. She can do a K-1 if she does not marry now, OR (preferred) she can marry now and start the process for a CR-1 visa.

    SusieQQQ got a reaction from Unlockable in B1/B2 visa for a child   
    It seems a bit odd to expect people to get visas to the US if you don’t think they would be getting visas to Canada etc too?! Unfortunately immigrating somewhere does not somehow improve the rights of your family members outside, and in a country like the US where just your presence is now an added tie to the US rather than home, actually makes it more difficult. Anyway yes hopefully the kid gets a visa to visit, that will be something at least. And maybe the mom can show better ties to home in future that can help her with a future application. One denial doesn’t mean she will forever be denied. Good luck.

    SusieQQQ got a reaction from US-UK in Personal assets and tax   
    Talk to an accountant and as above check local requirements/restrictions but the simplest advice from the US perspective is: if you plan to sell anything, sell it before you enter the US. After you enter the US and become a green card holder, you will be liable for capital gains tax on any gains. If you sell it before you become a LPR, it’s not taxable in the US. You won’t get taxed on the value of assets so just moving funds from Cambodia to the US won’t attract tax. You will however probably be asked to describe the source of funds for anti-money laundering measures. 
     
    You will have to declare worldwide income on US tax returns. Usually, double tax agreements and the foreign income exemption mean you won’t have to pay much or any tax in the US if you are tased at home. When you get to the US, I think it’s worth paying a tax consultant familiar with overseas income to help navigate the best routes.
     
    if you have cash or stock accounts worth more than $10k in Cambodia after you move, you will be required to file an annual form called FBAR with the irs, due same time as tax return. It’s a simple form, just detailing what you own offshore.

    There is quite some demand for medical staff in the US, I suggest you look for other sponsors. Companies that are used to sponsoring work visas for medical graduates are a better bet for sure than someone who happens to know a judge.

    It was 74% in FY2018, not high 80s. So still a reduction but not as stark. And also on far fewer numbers though. In FY18, 21.4k B visas were issued, down to just 14.7k last year,. Working back (I’m sure the actual numbers are out there somewhere but this is rough based on issued and refusal rates) only around 36k people applied last year compared to 82k the previous year. Whether high refusal rates discouraged those most likely to be or whether the situation just made it really difficult to apply for many people - it looks like the main reason for the fall was a smaller pool of (relatively) stronger applicants. It is of course still a very high refusal rate.
