  1. My brother in law got a DUI before he got his greencard. Each time he flies out of the country and back they just do a secondary inspection and let him back in. He said hes used to it by now and says its no big deal!
  2. Woohoo! Thats such great news! Is it strange that my case didnt updare to "card mailed"? The latest it that it was sent to production.
  3. I just got a notification from USPS that i should expect a mail piece on Friday from Corbin, KY. Could this be the greencard?
  4. Yeah I figured but I was hoping I would hear something by now. I wasn't aware its coming from intra-state, that's awesome. That means there's still a shot of it arriving this week. Thank you!
  5. I received the text message that my card went into production on 9/30 however no updates nor GC yet. Will they notify me once they send it out? Or will they pass this and just send it? I'm trying to plan a surprise party for my husband for the day it arrives and was hoping for an update by now.
  6. I've had a similar problem and the mail arrived a couple of days later. You can also call your post office and ask them for an update.
  7. I received a text message on Sat 9/30 notifying me that there was an update to our case. I logged on and it looks as if my husbands GC is in production!!!!!!!!!! Not the waiting game for the actual greencard begins How long after this message should I expect to get the GC in the mail?
  8. USPS delivered our post-interview RFE to the USCIS office on 8/30- it's been almost 2 weeks and we haven't heard anything. Not even a receipt that they received it. Should I be worried? I wasn't able to give proof of my certificate of naturalization/citizenship because I never had one. I copied my parents' certificates and my old greencard number along with my US passport. I also informed them that the reason I'm not submitting the certificate is because I'm waiting for my parents to get a copy of their marriage cerfiticate and birth certificate copies (they lost them and I cant apply for the certificate without this info). The officer said to do just that. I'm biting my nails again! How long did you receive GC approval after your RFE's? Thanks everyone
  9. Ok so we had the AOS interview yesterday at Federal Plaza in New York City. Our appointment was at 1:10PM so we arrived at 12:20PM. We signed in and were provided with a ticket and we were told to listen for our number. They were a little busy that day so our officer called us at 2:10PM. He was really nice, he noticed we were nervous and said not to be and that this will be a breeze. We had A LOT of documentation, pictures and bona fide proof with us however he only asked for a couple of items. He then asked me for a copy of my neutralization certificate- which I didn't have. I became a citizen when I was 17 through my parents who became neutralized then. They both received their neutralization certificates however I never got one because I was under the age of 18. I never thought I would need one.. I assumed that a US passport would suffice however it did not! I learned that a US passport is not proof that you're a US citizen. He said he would have approved the AOS however he cannot until I prove to him that I'm a citizen, and the only way is to apply for a certificate and then send him copies of my parents certificates along with my old green card number. He was nice enough to take time and draft up the RFE for us on the spot and he directed me where to go and what to do to obtain the certificate. Alas, the interview went well. He said that this will just extend the process by 2 weeks. Once I submit the RFE, we should be good to go. I was pleasantly surprised with the demeanor of the officer, he was very friendly (although very through in asking questions, my nerves did run wild a few times) but overall it wasn't as scary as I thought! The only downside is that I have to spend $1,170 for this certificate!
  10. Our interview is tomorrow- wish us luck!
  11. Quick questions for those who had their interviews.. My husband isn't fluent in English. He can certainly communicate however I'm afraid that there might be some questions he might not be able to answer. I'm thinking of having someone (preferably my brother) come to translate for my husband. Will that be frowned upon that it's my family member that's assisting to translate? Or does the person have to be an "official" translator that I would reach out to a translation agency for?
  12. This morning I was awoken by 4 text messages, back to back. I woke up a little annoyed because it was way before my alarm clock and immediately thought something happened at work. (Im in technology, my phone goes off at all times during the night and early AM.) To my surprise, it was 4 text messages from the USCIS that our case has been updated! I immediately went online and go this beautiful message: On July 27, 2017, we scheduled you for your interview and mailed you an interview notice for Receipt Number MSCXXXXXXXX. Your interview is on August 29, 2017. Please follow the instructions in the notice. If you do not receive your interview notice by August 26, 2017, please go to www.uscis.gov/e-request to request a copy of the notice. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address. WOOHOO! Finally! 9 months and 4 days after my PD date. I'm so relieved/excited/happy/nervous! I think I'm more excited than my husband! I can't wait to get the letter and to begin preparing
  13. I appreciate the contribution I can imagine how frustrated you are, it's been 15 months! Keeping my fingers crossed for you and everyone here that is waiting as well!
  14. I'm 8 months, 20 days past my priority date. NYC has the longest waiting times in the country, with an average of 10.5 months. I'm patiently waiting.... Congrats to everyone who has received their interview letters/gotten their greencards!
