  1. ...sending checks or direct deposits without verification can create a lot of mess as well - people move, change their Bank Info all the time....
  2. Looks like this is going to be more wise and proper course of action
  3. Makes sense..... So, I guess, it would be really wise to wait and apply AFTER bootcamp or even after school graduation since boot camp is in IL, school will be in Pensacola, but possible station (was mentioned at MEPS) could be in VA or CA.... At the same time, applying after school makes it very close to those 180 days as well - 10 weeks of bootcamp (2 weeks of quarantine required now) plus 13 weeks of school.... Thanks again- you were very very helpful!!
  4. You've explained it so well - thank you very much! ...Really appreciate it! So, if he goes a "civilian" route .. How does this work for biometric and other appointments (test, Ceremony)? What if he is away?.. Also, applying as "civilian", should he use his current home address or Great Lakes (bootcamp location?) Which one would be his "local" USCIS Office" ?- since its unknown (for now at least) where he will be stationed after school graduation... Sorry, guys, for so many questions.. Really confused - It just looks like it could be a very "interesting" and messy journey if go with "civilian" option...
  5. Hello, guys. Hope all of you are safe and well! My son just joined US NAVY. Arrival to bootcamp is April, 30. Well, if nothing delayed due to Corona... Anyway, In June of this year he will be eligible to apply for citizenship. So, he can submit his N-400 once he gets off the bootcamp. Or even if he is still in . And that's what he would like to do - to file once "window opens" From what I have read - seems like you have to be in Military up to 180 days before applying. Unless I misunderstood something... And have to get some Form , to attach to your N-400 application . So the questions are: 1. Does he still have to wait those 180 days? 2. If not - will he still need the Form and would it be provided to him during the basic training? 3. Will his N-400 fee still be waived? Just trying to figure out things before he leaves. Any inputs will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance your help!
  6. Ok, now I have another question Son's day to leave is April 30. It may be changed a little bit, due to COVID-19, but anyway - it's coming In June of this year he will be eligible to apply for citizenship. So, can submit his N-400 once he gets off the bootcamp. Or even if he is still in. And looks like if you apply from Military, then your application fee is waived, right? So, from what I have read - seems like you have to be in Military up to 180 days before applying. Unless I misunderstood something... And have to get some Form , to attach to your N-400 application . But he is eligible anyway, regardless of being in Armed Forces or not... Does anybody know how it works in case like that?.... Will his N-400 fee still be waived? Just trying to figure out things before he leaves. Hope all of you are safe and thanks a lot for your help - will appreciate any inputs.
  7. It's been a long time since I started this thread.. Soooooo,... since we've never had any news from CG, in November, 2019 my son decided to go and see NAVY recruiter. Result - he sighed a contract and swore today! I'm officially a proud mom of US NAVY guy!!!! They even accepted education he earned in Ukraine (it was evaluated in US credits) , so he is getting in as E3, with a job he wanted - aviation structure mechanic. .. just wanted to share this great news with everyone! thank you all!
  8. Ask your bank if they could provide you with a Statement, called "Personal Signature Card Addendum - Add Owner(s)". That the statement your wife and you should've signed when she added you to the bank account. here is an example. The look f the form will vary, form bank to bank. US bank, for example, had a lot of info on our Statement - our DOB, SS#, addresses, date when I was added to the bank account and etc... Anyway, I believe each bank should have something like that on the record....
  9. I don't think she will be able to travel - Ukraine to suspend ALL air travel March 17. https://www.unian.info/politics/10914503-coronavirus-update-ukraine-to-suspend-all-air-travel-march-17.html?fbclid=IwAR301xxziDZXjRb5_n6fpBhc75IWtnXDCmL3Ip6BzvUO1t6iiiVDCDYRz6o Even if Ukraine didn't do that there is a huge chance your wife's departure from Poland to the US would be canceled. My friend just got cancellation with Lufthansa, out of Atlanta to Germany, for April 10... Really sorry, but it is what it is... Stay safe.
  10. In place of signatures - taxpayer's and spouse's names printed. IRS "recognizes" that as an electronical signature when e-file. But sure, for peace in mind, it's definitely a good idea to print the Statement, then sigh, scan and attach to a Tax Return as a pdf.file.
  11. Sorry, yes, you are right - it's a statement, not a Form. No, nothing has to be scanned. I think it became available in 2018, this option for e-filing. Once you select that MFJ with Non-resident spouse/taxpayer (full-year or part time), the Statement pumps out right "there", with names and stuff, in each copy - for Government (IRS, e-file), client's copy (printed version/e-mail) and tax preparer/filing cabinet as well. Of course, general info like taxpayer's and spouse's names, DOB, SSN , address - has to be entered BEFORE the election is made.
  12. Obviously it's different. That's why there is a form (you've mentioned before), to make an election to be treated as a resident for tax purposes. And the Form is "Election to File Joint Return with Nonresident Alien Spouse. Just pulled from our software, Ultra Tax CS. Same story as OP's. Sent electronically in 2018. Zero issues. It used to be impossible to e-file because of the Form. But now you can. Again - to have that form filled automatically you have first to make an election in the software - MFJ: Elect to file joint return with nonresident alien spouse.
