  1. Hi everyone, I'm just wondering , when is the first time you can file in paperwork for citizenship? How much time since your first green card (the one you get for a year or two)? I'm just asking since I'm so over fighting with some people from my EU country, who besides thinking that money grows on trees think that I can ask for citizenship within a year or two. My mother talked to some church lady,who is an American and she said I can already ask for it,while i was still waiting for AOS. I told her that's ridiculous that it's most likely at least 5 if not even 10 or more years of living on a green card before you can ask for citizenship? I'm talking about green card through K1 process. Then I'm also wondering that if I apply for citizenship will I need to give up my EU citizenship or will I have 2 passports? Thank you for your info. Wish you a beautiful day <3
  2. That's odd. They may have made a mistake. I'd still call the USCIS and see what they say...Maybe the person putting in info typed it wrong. We all make mistakes..so I think they'll just correct it either when you call or when you have the interview.
  3. And what was your interview like? I'm just nervous mostly about when will i get the card home...because my health insurance company is harassing me like i'm the one stalling this process while it's not in my hands. I wish there was a way to expedite it or sth so i don't lose the insurance for i need it because of my serious chronic disease- aka if i lose it and i'll need an emergency surgery again...i can't afford it...so i may as well die then... :/ It's just ridiculous... I truly hope it comes within a week...while i heard from some people it may take months...
  4. Hi everyone, so how long did it take from your interview and being approved until you received green card in the mail? So another way to ask: how many days, weeks did you wait for green card to finally arrived into your mail box? Thank you
  5. We are in Dallas, TX and our waiting time was for the first interview 16 months... and then coz we needed to reschedule they took another 3 months..so now it's almost 20 months altogether.
  6. Thank you it means a lot that you responded. We finally got the date...and now on top of it,2 days later we received the letter with new date of the interview,which is in 2 weeks. We'll go in this Thursday anyways and if nothing else make sure we have everything for 17th... Thanks
  7. Thank you but I've tried that before looking for an opening staying up for days past midnight and there's no opening ever. :/
  8. Hi, I'm at my wits end. Our file is supposed to be at Dallas, TX ,we live in Fort Worth,TExas and we needed to postpone the interview that was issued on 31st January 2018 (our application was sent in on 12.september 2016) and we sent the paper back with all info as requested and it's been months and no response. We called the line you're supposed to call and all the did was sent in inquiry that didn't tell us anything beyond it+'s in processing. Now my insurance company is starting to threaten me to stop my insurance which i badly need coz of my serious health issues if i don't sent them in GC copy asap and now I don't know what to do. I'm really at my ends coz if I lose the insurance I'm basically ###### (pardon my words), but i can't afford to treat my chronic condition out of pocket since even with insurance it's very expensive. So please anyone with any advice what can I do, whom to turn to , can I somehow expedite this and where do I turn to for this? I'm in real dire situation now so please anyone that knows what can i do i'd gladly appreciate the advice... THank you
  9. I was supposed to have the interview on 31st jan, but due to my husband I'm still angry with we needed to postpone. This means you send them the letter back and well..it's been 8 weeks and no response whatsoever. We also called in (no the exact office since they don't dabble in phones but only in letter and i imagine soon in pigeons and Harry Potter style owls --sarcasm) and they didn't know anything. So for the first response I waited since sept 2016,which makes it 16 months. Now because of rescheduling it seems it will be another few months. p.s. and that was with calling in every 30 days since october and filing inquiry...that only saif thatit was at Dallas office since about 8.nov 2017 and waiting to be scheduled. They needed 2 months to schedule our case and I bet if we weren't so persistent we would be still waiting for our first interview date. To me it's ridiculous how long they take. Oh and let me tell you another joy. If it's been more than 12months since your medical exam for visa, you will need to retake the medical exam. Which will cost you 200$...that is if they recognize your medical records...which mine ,even tho I'm from EU ,didn't..so they gave me useless and unneeded vaccinations for tetanus, MMR , hepatitis B that caused me a ton of problems (but if i declined they said they wouldn't pass my medical-so i was forced against my better judgment)...and they charged me 450$ altogether. If you didn't get a flu shot,which i did, they will charge you for that ,too. Plus be prepared to feel side effects ,specially of MMR (I had fever of 104-6 for 6 days, nausea, vomiting, severe swelling of the whole arm, rash all over my boy, joint pain, headaches and severe bruising that even now a month after i need to be careful not to get injured or i may bleed to death...and so on) and tetanus (pretty bad bruise that took 3 weeks to go away plus my whole arm hurt, was stiff and spasmed for about 4 days)... my autoimmune disease has been silent for almost a year and now it has broken out again and i'll need to be put on a very expensive drug just because of this...plus they do things ### backwards: they give you shots and then ask questions like : do you have any illnesses or conditions that you may not get the shots because of it, or pregnant (if you're pregnant you baby will be crippled plus you can't get pregnant 1-3 months after the shot or your baby will be crippled--so keep that in mind if they force you to get these shots ,too,that you need to be mindful not to conceive within 3 months after getting MMR). I've tried to tell them that i have autoimmune disease that i'm on imunosupressive meds and they didn't take it into account. Plus the doctor was very rude asking questions like if i have reckless sexual life (which the doctor in EU for the same medical never asked and if he did ask anything like it he was polite about it, this one here just asked like i'm a common prostitute ) and if i was exposed to HIV... and basically all the time implying i'm reckless and stupid in my intimacy (with my husband). So yes, be prepared that they may be very rude; if there was a word to describe worse than rude, i'd use it right now. They also test you for varicella, chicken pox and if you are negative (you weren't vaccinated or were never sick) they charge you an extra of 125$ for the pleasure of another shot. And of course they will do the tuberculosis test that if it comes out positive (mine was negative which was strange since i was vaccinated as a newborn 32 years ago) you+'ll need a chest xray (another 100$) and blood work (another 100 or so $)..and then treatment (which in USA won't be cheap). So be prepared for at least another 200$, most likely 450$ expense with the invitation to this interview. Oh and if you haven't had chicken pox another 125$. I imagine you won't have tb since most cases come from Mexico. Good luck - hope it serves you better than it did me.

  11. Hi everyone , I wasn't completely sure where to post this, but I'm wondering if there exists a FB group of people who came to US on K-type visas? Or basically any kind of group of people who moved to US and it's about supporting each other in the means of assimilating into culture. A place where you can ask how to get somewhere, where to buy something (I don't know certain food from your country or items from your part of the world or just in general where to get something), how to get around, how to set up certain things (bank account, work stuff)...basically a group who supports each other with basic life things here in US. I love Visa journey but it's not as interactive and I spend much more time on FB than on my gmail and here. So if anyone know of any groups please post a link. Thank you
  12. Hi everyone, Does anyone here have experience with the Dallas, TX office? How does an interview look like? The letters says to bring passport, birth certificate copies- are they just plain copies or do they need to be certified/notorized or sth? Basically tell me about your experience at an interview or give me a link on this site where people talk about their interview experiences. Thank you <3
