  1. A SSN will make it easier for the beneficiary to be added to their spouse's bank account, credit cards, lease, and any other bills agreed upon. It makes the process easier. My fiancé received his SSN before we got married and it made the above mentioned things a lot easier and in some cases possible (such as being added to the lease) and gave us a lot more evidence going into our Adjustment of Status interview.
  2. If the check has been cashed, then your application was accepted.
  3. Yes, you should take them with you just in case.
  4. On the long end, it can take up to 6 weeks to receive any thing from NVC…this is another stage in the process where patience is your friend.
  5. I do not know the exact answer to this question. We had our interview in February and I brought a new affidavit, but the interviewer did not take it since she said that nothing significant had changed in our case since we filed in August. However, we are now past the tax filing deadline, so technically your most recent tax return should be reflective of 2018, not 2017 like you submitted in August. My advice would be to complete a new affidavit and take it with you because you would hate to have the officer ask for it and you not have it which leads to a delay in the process. At a minimum, you should at least bring proof that you filed your 2018 taxes.
  6. Think of it this way: Can you put a price on your peace of mind? I think you'd rather be there, because if you're not and she gets denied for any reason, you may be kicking yourself for not going. Having her take your passport into the embassy is a positive sign of support and legitimacy of your relationship.
  7. Typically, you have to wait until it says "ready" at the embassy. "Ready" indicates that it is at the embassy and entered into their system.
  8. One thing that you may find helpful is that once you are granted the K1, you do not have to travel to the U.S. immediately. The visa is good for you to enter within 6 months of your medical exam. Basically, it could take 6-8 months for NOA2 (approval); another 2 months for medical and consulate interview; and an additional 6 months after that in which you must travel. All-in-all, you can stretch this process out for at least 14-16 months if need be. For example, although I applied in May 2017 for the K1, my fiancé did not step foot in the U.S. until June 2018.
  9. Hi Everyone, My husband received his Green Card in the mail one week after our interview!!!. We are both breathing a sigh of relief and we are happy to have an almost 2-year break from immigration. Wishing you all a successful trip on the rest of your journeys.
  10. Have you tried adding her to your insurance? Another option is to add her as an authorized user on any credit cards you have.
  11. Greetings Everyone, My husband and I had our Green Card interview today. All in all, it was a great experience. Our interview was scheduled for 12:10pm and we arrived at 12:00pm. We sat in the waiting room until 12:15 when we were called in the back by a nice female officer. She first took our IDs, then she took my husband's picture and finger prints. After that, we both stood up for our oaths. She started by asking us to submit any additional materials that I wanted to. I gave her an updated I-864, proof of our relationship, and a few pictures (Although brought 70 pictures, she only kept about 15 of them). She then proceeded to ask me questions from our I 485, then my husband the same questions. After tediously going through all the questions on our I-485, she asked us how we met, how we decided to become a romantic couple, and our proposal/when we decided to get married? That was basically it. After all of that, she gave me back the updated I 864, because she said since we were already qualified from the I 864 that was submitted in August and we hadn't filed our 2018 taxes, nothing has changed in our financial status, so she didn't need it. After that, she told us everything looks good for us to be approved, she just needs to complete a final background check, which she plans to have completed tomorrow since there are no interviews scheduled. She said we could check our case status online, but if we don't receive our Green Card within 30 days, make an info pass appointment and come back to the office so they can see if it got lost in the mail. We were out and done by 1pm. It was a very casual conversation; and it is very true that as long as you are telling the truth and have nothing to hide, this is an easy part of the process.
  12. If you're really that paranoid, you could wait until she gets a Green Card. I realize that would delay her travel, but it may give everyone more peace of mind.
  13. Hi Everyone, My husband and I have his AOS Interview next week. Just running through our list of things to bring to the interview. For those of you who have had your interview, please let me know if I'm leaving anything out: 1. Updated 1-864 with 2017 Tax Transcript, Pay Stubs for December-February, and Letter from Employer 2. Copy of U.S. Citizen Birth Certificate and Passport 3. Marriage License 4. I-94 5. Copy of Husband's Birth Certificate and Passport 6. Supporting Evidence (Joint Health Insurance, Joint Utility and Cell Phone Bill, Joint Lease, Joint Credit Card, Photos, Travel Itineraries for trips we've been on since his arrival in the U.S.) 7. Copy of I-485 Am I missing anything?
  14. If you didn't use an attorney for the K1, you really don't need one for AOS. My husband came on a K1 in June, we got married in August, submitted his AOS/AP/EAD in August and he has his AOS Interview in a couple of weeks. All done without a lawyer. Save your money.
  15. My husband and I were traveling for the holidays to visit my family and just retuned on Tuesday. I had fully expected that when we returned he would have received his AP/EAD card. However, to my great surprise, we received a letter letting us know he had been scheduled for our interview which will take place on February 13th. I am so pleasantly surprised as we had mentally prepared ourselves for at least one year before the green card interview and to know that we will have it less than one month from now and will not need to worry about AP/EAD is a wonderful notion.
