  • Our Story
    I am the USC and currently doing research for my S.O. and I. If anything we are about a year out to file, and just making sure everything is in order when the time is right.We formally met in Aug 2015, I knew of him since May 2015. He is staying at the hotel I worked at and our paths crossed a few times. While delivering something to his room I noticed a StarCraft mouse, and remembered it. I finally had the courage to ask him about it a few months later. We became friends and he informed me about his past, and I still decided I wanted to try to have a relationship with him. We have been spending every weekend with each other and some weekday nights. He entered the USA on a J-1 Visa, and will be leaving to go back to his country in Nov 2016 to take care of legal issues.We want to spend the rest of our lives with each other, but as of right now, the timing is not there.

  1. We got our NVC numbers this afternoon via email (no phone call on my behalf), its for Germany, and now hubs is trying to confirm with them (Ex wife and my step Daughter) that if they want it moved to Poland or kept in Germany. Within the NVC website I have a message dates March 6th 2022 8:21:44 EST stating: "A change to the assigned post has generated a new case ID Due to the suspension of immigrant visa operations at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine, the U.S. Department of State has designated the U.S. Consulate in Frankfurt, Germany to process all visas."
  2. I search for NVC and State.gov about 3 times a day, even on weekends; when I wake up, about mid day for me, and before I go to bed. His daughter and I haven't received any emails, and I filed our petition online, its the correct email since I got the notification about her petition approved there as well. When I did hubs petition it took us about a bit more than a month to get his NVC number. I even advised his daughter to keep an eye out for NVC and keep searching for it each day. I'm just hoping ours took a bit to be sent? I feel like I should give it till Thursday, if I hear nothing I should call them. Thank you for the link, I don't even recall seeing that when I was dealing with my hub's petition.
  3. With all that is going on in the world, I feel a bit overwhelmed everywhere to figure out when to request Warsaw to take ownership of my step daughter's IR2. Petition was approved Feb 16ish and sent to NVC a bit afterwards. Everyone; hubs, his ex and his daughter keep asking me about my step daughter's petition and if we are really going to have her immigrate here. Hub's ex keeps having doubts that we are since immigration is taking, in everyone's eyes, forever. I keep trying to explain it to them over and over the process. I feel like they think I am holding up this petition when I am not. Please correct me if I am wrong, and I really hope I am wrong. Do I need to wait to be assigned a NVC number in order for Warsaw to take ownership? Or could I send an email to Warsaw with our IOE or USCIS case number asking them right now to take ownership? Is there anything I can do to expedite this case at the NVC or waiting on interview at Warsaw? (I highly doubt it, with the millions that have fleed. And I still think she is ahead most people on this path.) I'm pretty sure its buried somewhere on these forums. I just want something that is concrete or to help me pointing in the right direction. PS Step daughter was asking if her dad was going to send documents to the embassy =\ I have told my step daughter that she should be getting an email from the government(NVC) with the new number when its ready to go. I have even sent her a link to these sub forums so she is able to read the sub forums incase I missed something.
  4. I would have mention more about the child support part, now I guess afraid to even have hubs go to Russia out of fear his ex takes him to court for not paying.... assuming he can even get there in the first place. His ex relies on the monthly child support to her each month. I really hope this administration realizes that there is a decent Russian and Ukrainian community in the US, and all they are doing is (insert curse word of choice) over these people.
  5. I'm really hoping we are able to send money to Russia, how in heck are we to support children from prior marriages? Or pay our loans we have over there? I guess we lose out on our homes, etc. If we are unable to send money to his child... I really hope this doesn't bite him in the you know what when he goes for citizenship soon.
  6. Is it possible to give a link or write out the name in Ukrainian? I do want to pass along this information to my husband so he can talk to his daughter.
  7. I don't mean to steal the thread, unsure if it counts as being on topic....... but it do have a question about police certificates... My step daughter just, as in the last hour, finally got out of Ukraine, and into Poland. We are unsure how long they will be there for, but how will she get around getting her police certificates if she stays in Poland till she has her visa interview? Our petition got approved on February 16th, and according to the USCIS website it stated that they sent her case to NVC on Feb 19th. When we got to this point in my husband's petition, we started getting his police certificates.... is it possible they might be waived due to the crisis? Yes she is over 16, and turning 17 in May.
  8. So I am reading the security post on Ukraine's website, (https://ua.usembassy.gov/security-alert-attack-on-ukraine-022422/) On February 24, 2022, the Department of State suspended consular operations in Lviv, Ukraine, following the suspension of consular services at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv on February 12, 2022. U.S. citizens seeking emergency assistance and those who decide to remain in Ukraine should complete this online form and the State Department will respond. The U.S. government will not be able to evacuate U.S. citizens from Ukraine. Please review what the U.S. government can and cannot do to assist you in a crisis overseas. U.S. citizens may seek consular services, including requests for repatriation loans, passport and visa services, at U.S. Embassies in the following neighboring countries. Hungary Moldova Poland Romania Slovakia I'm wondering if we are able to use the above countries for visas. My step daughter's petition at the USCIS was approved on Feb 15th and we just got her approval letter yesterday, and now we are confused on what to do next besides the normal NVC stuff. Hubs keeps asking me if there is away to get her sooner, like refugee status etc. I still think the faster way for her is the approved i-130 petition. SIGH.
  9. We got to the interview location in LA, the guy that checked us in was awesome, nice and friendly. As we sat for our number to be called, others were being called for different numbers and I noticed their callers had files that were easy to carry...... When it was finally our turn, we were taken to a different door compared to the rest, and was told to sit down infront of a clear pixy glass. On the desk was a stack of paperwork, about 5 or more inches thick. We were asked questions that were based off our form that I had filled out. And our one and ONLY relationship question that could not be found in the petition was "How did you two met?" Afterwards she went over the documents I sent her, my hubs was wondering what I had submitted, she mentions that she liked I wrote an explanation of each category of each set of evidence that was listed and why we lived a few months apart after he immigrated here. (He got a job offer to Cali and our lease was about to expire in a few months in Washington so made more sense to keep me working till the end of the lease agreement instead of paying x3 rent to break the lease.) Even submitted the plane tickets of me visiting him during 4th of July break at my job. It finally got to the point where she asked us if we had any updated documents we wanted to submit..... she asked if there was an updated lease agreement or a mortgage statement that I could give her and also if there was a tax return from 2020. When I got to about 75% done presenting the documents, my husband kept begging me to stop giving them to her.... I felt like Billy Mays during an info commercial. The IO told him that's its really best to have too many documents than too little. She ended the interview telling us she will be removing the conditions and should be expecting the new green card in the mail within a few weeks. She mentions hubs is able to apply for citizenship since his window has been open and if we had any questions. Hubs was asking about what to do about child support payments proof when one ex spouse will refuse to sign a document staying he has been paying her it this whole time since there is no court order. Basically show bank statements and highlight where the money is being sent to them, and if there is a conversation to the EX about it, print those conversations as proof. We also mention that we have a petition out for his oldest to come live with us. (Which got stage 1 approval on Wednesday). PS. My spouse remembered my correct month and day of my birthday but forgot the year, kept guessing the years around it but not it.(Told him thank you for calling me younger than I really am, he gave the correct age I was, and told him to take 21 minus the age and what does he get >>) He was scare he also forgot the day month and year we got married on to the point the IO told him the date and said "Oh yeah." PSS When we got to the car I checked the status of the petition, it states that his new green card is being produced!
  10. Today is the day of our interview, super nervous, I keep feeling like I don't have everything but yet I'm bringing everything that has our name on it together with some other things that were for the house we bought in Oct that's separate. For originals, I got stuff sent to us snail mail so I wouldn't have to print them, plus there is a digital copy on the companies website's. We lost some past mail from family members and other documents during the move His parents flew out from Russia to see us and they flew in early and helped us move. Found out his parents were throwing out papers that were to be kept. Only found this out when I saw my expired Health Insurance card (was used in the I-751) in the recycling bin a few weeks after we moved. I literally had boxes of mail or anything that had our names tied together put off to the side and physically moved them to the house myself. Joint: monthly mortgage payment bill, original Trash bill, original Water Bill, original Both bank accounts used as evidence from the I-130 petition, with statements taken from every 3 months after I-751 was sent. Car Insurance Home owners Insurance bill. Heath insurance cards printed from their website. Health insurance tax form showing we both had the same coverage for the year 2021. Registration for the car we have a loan for in both names. Supplemental tax bill for buying the house...... Tax transcripts since the year we got married, even when I filed separately for the 1st 2 tax years. Copy of current state driver's license with out the new address (they were updated on the state's website but don't send out new ones for change of address or some bs type thing) Some mail from one family relative saying Mr and Mrs (my version of the last name) NM tax department asking for more info and oddly using my last name even thought I wrote his version of the last name on the taxes. Separate: Gas in my name Electric in my name Internet in his name Water filtration loan in his name PS After this we plan on filing for his citizenship since it opened up nearly a month ago, just had other surprised bills popping up.
  11. If you don't mind me asking, what questions did they ask you guys? My husband is super nervous (lots of stress from work) and I'm trying to calm him down, we have our interview on Feb 18th, so trying to prepare for it. Poor trees due to all the documents I'll be printing up for updated evidence.
  12. On Dec 15, we received my hubs 24 month extension letter On Dec 16th, got the mail for his BIOS appointment. Jan 4th, went to BIOS appointment. Below is from USCIS.gov January 5, 2022 The fingerprints relating to your Form I-751 Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, were taken. January 5, 2022 We are ready to schedule your Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, for an interview. January 11, 2022 Interview Was Scheduled January 11, 2022 Interview Was Scheduled On January 11, 2022, we scheduled an interview for your Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, Receipt Number WAC**********. We will mail you an interview notice. Please follow any instructions in the notice. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address. Not sure if this will help other people but our BIOS appointment was at San Fernando, CA, I assume it will be in the same area. Haven't received our letter yet. I guess time to look up what people have been asked and start printing our documents. I seriously thought we had about a good few more months before the interview going off of everyone's timelines.
  13. I'm hoping we get our letter soon, we are moving sometime in October or November, in escrow with a house. At least your post gives us an idea of when we should be expecting it.
  14. Anyone else's case has been xfered lately? June 17, 2021 Case Was Transferred And A New Office Has Jurisdiction June 16, 2021 Your Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, was transferred to another USCIS office. April 12, 2021 We received your Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence. I'm a bit nervous and wonder why our case was transferred, I was more expecting the email to be about the bio being waived or them needing them. A few weeks ago we sent of the petition for hub's daughter via me, pretty sure that has nothing to do with his ROC.
  15. We received my hubby's i-797 on Monday. Now trying to figure out what to do with it. We live within the 100 miles of the Mexican border. When he went to New Mexico for a work trip, there is a border check point where they said something about his soon to be expiring green card at the time, I assume if he goes back he will need to bring that paper work with him. Hopefully they are knowledgeable in it.
