    Agree..... and RFEs are usually the result of not providing what is required in the instructions. In other words, a self-inflicted delay.

    Actually,  the denied I-485 has been rightfully denied.  It is done...history.  The only thing the OP can do is to re-file a new I-485 package along with an I-130 package.  There is no need for an attorney.

    F-1 is a non-immigrant visa, for a temporary stay in the US during the program of study, and then returning to your home country.  It will be very difficult to get one because you already have immigrant intent.

    According to other VJ members, the AVERAGE time from NOA1 to interview is 447 days.  Sounds like you are well within that time.  The immigration process requires a great deal of knowledge, planning, time, patience, and money.  A failure in any of those areas can result in delays or denials.  Good luck.

    What are you talking about? It's totally irrelevant. Look, we can debate whether or not that's the right attitude or not to get these ostensible people to give me what I want, but in the abstract it's completely daft and so are arguments that it was "self-inflicted" after I checked over the application infinity times or (this one was particularly hilarious) that it's to "protect our country"—as if it needed protection from the immigrant hordes who are gonna MARRY WHITE GUYS AND GET JOBS AND TRY HARD and probably believe in this dump of a nation more than I or any other native-born ever could.
     
    Frankly I don't even think of it as "our country" because no one my age has ever really had a stake in it and, if anything, this process is reinforcing that obvious truth.

    Crazy Cat reacted to Jorgedig in General advice for someone new to the US   
    You must always tell the truth to CBP.  Your statements become part of the record, and may be used later in the process if you have misrepresented your intentions.  Quitting your job in order to visit is not particularly smart.  Your admission to the US on an ESTA or B visa is entirely predicated on your ability to establish strong ties to home and reasons to return.
     
    You may only visit on an ESTA.  If you want to move to the US, your partner needs to petition you properly.  You cannot remain in the US during this process.  You can visit, subject to CBP allowing you to enter the country.
     
    US immigration is not cheap, or quick.  I suggest that your partner joins VJ and that you both read and research as much as possible to become educated about it.  Your partner especially needs to join and read, as he will be the one driving the petition process if you decide to go that route.
     
    Edited to add:  same sex marriage has been legal in all 50 United States for years, and is not an issue at all for marriage-based visas.

    An I-864 is in force until the new immigrant:
    1.  Becomes a US citizen, or
    2.  Gains 40 quarters of work credit, or
    3.  Loses status as a legal resident and departs the US, or
    4.  Dies

    Crazy Cat got a reaction from Jorgedig in Questions about k1 for fiancee   
    Every couple has their own priorities, and each couple must decide which visa is better for their situation.
    K-1        
        More expensive than CR-1    
        Requires Adjustment of Status after marriage (expensive and requires a lot of paperwork)    
        Spouse can not leave the US until she/he receives approved Advance Parole (approx 6-8 months)    
        Spouse can not work until she/he receives EAD (approx 6-8 months)    
        Some people have had problems with driver licenses, Social Security cards, leases, bank account during this period    
        Spouse will not receive Green Card for many months after Adjustment of Status is filed.
        A denied K-1 is sent back to USCIS to expire
      
    CR-1
        Less expensive than K-1    
        No Adjustment of Status(I-485, I-131, I-765) required.    
        Spouse can immediately travel outside the US    
        Spouse is authorized to work immediately upon arrival.    
        Spouse receives Social Security Card and Green Card within 2 or 3 weeks after entering the US    
        Opening a bank account, getting a driver's license, etc. are very easily accomplished with GC, SS card, and passport.
        Spouse has legal permanent Resident status IMMEDIATELY upon entry to US.

    It isn't irrelevant......They can and WILL just deny your case if you don't respond with what they want.  Your choice....comply or they deny.  It's pretty simple.

    You are just starting this process and it is very invasive
    u will disclose all personal and private information including financial and criminal for the petition and then at the interview 
    it gets very intense for the AOS adjustment after marriage so be prepared to "tell all"
    they don't make it easy or cheap or fast so you just have to get use to 'hurry up and wait"
     
    The process and disclosures are for not only your protection and our country but for the protection of the intending immigrant 
    and all charges should be disclosed on the petition by u so the RFE doesn't hit u in the face like it has now
    and no charge is totally irrelevant to the immigration process / remember the officer doing your paperwork is as much responsible for what is included in your packet as you are and only doing the job as assigned 
     
    it gets a lot more intense as you go along so prepare yourself and just do whatever they say or ask u to do
    Immigration is  in control and that is probably the hardest part to understand as we like to be "in control" of our own life

    USCIS does background checks on the petitioner TO PROTECT THE BENEFICIARY, not strip you of citizenship. That’s just the way it is - you have to declare every little thing in your past no matter how small you think it is. If you don’t like that, well tough luck is all I can say. 
     
    If you think this whole situation of delayed adjudication and invasion of privacy is outrageous, you need to buckle up because the ride will get much much more interesting.
