  1. It taken 3 tries to get our last 3 years of transcripts for the ROC the beginning of this year..After several phone calls to an IRS agent and me trying to order online, we still had not received at that time..I finally got an IRS agent (this was earlier part of February before this pandemic got out of hand) that saw I requested 3 times and put in another request and we finally got them...As of now, the IRS are not any accepting phone calls due to handling of these stimulus checks..You may have to wait until it die down (Who knows when that will be) to put in another request...Good luck to you!
  2. Well said on all of this..My husband (CR1) has been here over a year and the only thing he is not adjusting to is American foods...Thank God I love Nigerian cuisines and that we have many Nigerian/African restaurants here..When he first got here April 2018, he was without work until January 2019, but that's because at that time we weren't really looking and my income alone helped us along the way...I thank God he is not homesick, but does miss close family and friends...Other than that, the food seems to be the only issue for him..Everything has to be hot...Lol! I will say to anyone coming to a foreign land is research and learn that country you will be living in...
  3. I was just about to say the same..I read nothing in their response to OP to have spouse come to America to adjust status once he is here in America...
  4. A social security wasn't required for my husband when I added him to my insurance and he had a social at that time...Not mandatory or required, so keep fighting!
  5. Exactly...I couldn't file MFJ or MFS because my husband was in another country with no social security number..He was approved at his interview and once he got here to America and got his SSN, we got our 2016 and 2017 taxes amended...No wahala!
  6. When I filed my taxes, I could not add my husband because he was in Nigeria and did not have a social, so the tax rep told me I had to file single and not MFS and I also couldn't file HOH..It bothered me because I knew this was going to cause us an issue, but apparently the Lagos Consulate was aware of this happening and people still got approved and me being one..However, as soon as my husband got here, we had our 2016 and 2017 taxes ammended..I am not suggesting to you to do this, but if need be, apply for an ITIN for your spouse so that way you will be at ease..
  7. This is true..When I was going to visit my hubby in Nigeria, my drivers license and my flight itinerary had my maiden and married name, but my passport only had my maiden name. However, the ticket agent did informed me that I would need to get a new passport with my married name added because the next time I will not be so lucky..She had to go to her supervisor to get the go ahead for me to check in my luggage and get on my flight...As soon as made it back to America, I taken care of that...
