    Met in 1974, and then again in 2005. Falling in love with the same person twice in a lifetime!

  1. Got my social security card 10 days after applying at visit to social security office. So apparently the multiple case checks were nothing to worry about.
  2. Yeah, what's up with these multiple case checks? I applied on February 23rd. Two cases on SAVE dated February 24th and one case on February 25th - all saying returned to agency.
  3. Wow, you are one lucky girl! Congrats!
  4. How did you motivate getting the SSN because of your medical issues? Did you say you needed it for health insurance?
  5. You are aware that the fee for removing conditions is being increased to $760 plus an additional fee for biometric service of $85? Can't your husband work in Denmark a couple of months to help support you so you can avoid all the hassle and costs which come with removing conditions?
  6. Are you sure you want to go through the removal of conditions instead of waiting a couple of more months?
  7. Please keep us informed how it goes. I have my green card but no SSN. I alled the SS office and they won't help me unless I have a job offer. I'm retired, so no, I don't have a job offer, but I would like to get a driver's license and for that I need a social security number. Also my husband is still to file the taxes for 2019 and he doesn't know how to do it without me having an SSN, it's too late to get an ITIN number now.
  8. Not until I received the card, no. It arrived before USCIS themselves had the tracking number.
  9. I stayed at Villa Källhagen which is located a couple of minutes walk from the US embassy. You can order meals with room service for an extra 150 kr. It's 15 minutes walk from the Central station to the hotel. Nice hotel, okay price.
  10. The dates were different in my old versus my new USCIS account. In my old USCIS account at egov.uscis.gov it says: "July 31st, 2020. We are producing your new card for your Form OS155A, Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration." In my new USCIS account at my.uscis.gov it said: "August 7th, 2020. In Process. USCIS has accepted your application, petition, or request for processing." POE: July 12th, 2020 Green Card mailed: August 19th, 2020 Green Card received: August 22nd, 2020
  11. I just received my green card! It was sent to the wrong address but it managed to get to me anyway since our new flat is just some blocks away. Thank you, USPS! +41 days since POE!
  12. I got my visa within 2-3 days from the approval, but I lived in Sweden.
  13. You can check your visa status here: https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx The date for "Case Last Updated" will change every time someone touches your case, so you get a sense of if they are dealing with it or not. It's also the first place you will see when your visa has been issued, a couple of days before you actually receive the passport in the mail. We checked this place several times a day, it was a lifesaver when we were feeling nervous, wondering if we would be stuck in administrative processing or maybe even denied.
  14. I got the same impression of the female conducting the document check. She goes very strictly by the rules. I was also put on administrative processing at first, but the matter was resolved within 2 weeks and I got my visa. I wouldn't worry too much, this issue with your husband's birth certificate ought to be a matter they can clear up. The male interviewer verifying that he sees your relationship as legitimate is, I think from having met him if it's the same guy (short, friendly), his way of saying everything will be alright, just give them a little bit of time to clear things up.
