  1. That is all true, but other agencies might be affected e.g the ones doing the background checks...
  2. Since she is Hungarian she can apply for ESTA and if approved she can board the plane without an actual VISA. She can stay up to 90 days and use it more than once. The rule is that she shouldn't spend more time in the USA then in Hungary and then she would not have any problem visiting again. Btw I think since you are just a green card holder if she overstays she won't be able to adjust status (what you wanted originally) because the overstay in her case won't be forgiven because you are not an USC yet....
  3. There is a neat tool from USCIS where you can check fees https://www.uscis.gov/feecalculator
  4. I think everyone has an I-94 issued. At least a couple of years ago when I was using VWP I was able to retrieve it.
  5. Be sure to check with the airline... I think if you don't board the first flight they automatically cancel your return ticket too.... You can try to see round trip tickets from Singapore to USA for yourself if they are cheaper...

    USCIS fee calculator

    Thank you. I think it is fine there
  7. Hi Mods, Found this on USCIS's twitter... Looks like they made a fee calculator https://www.uscis.gov/feecalculator Is there any to post this somewhere to reach the users of this website? I saw a lot of questions about how much it costs to file form X, Y etc...
  8. Can it be reduced to below 50? Like 25 lines or less? It is very annoying when you are reading threads and then you have 50 lines of signature of somebody's immigration timelines in all in their replies... I thought the timeline feature of the website is for that... Or maybe it could be arranged in the TOS to forbitd to add immigration timelines with dates and steps to the Signature?
  9. Just found this today, it's a fee calculator made by USCIS so no more wrong checks and money orders https://www.uscis.gov/feecalculator

    How to recover myUSCIS account when can't hear?

    Maybe you could try to contact them thru the e-mail address on this page? https://www.uscis.gov/website-policies/accessibility Or at the bottom of the page below there is a phone number which promises support for people with hard of hearing https://www.uscis.gov/contactcenter "If you need to talk to a representative for another reason, and are in the United States or a U.S. territory, you can call the USCIS Contact Center. Dial 800-375-5283 (for people who are deaf, hard of hearing, or have a speech disability: TTY 800-767-1833) to access automated information through an interactive menu 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can get live help from a USCIS representative Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern except on federal holidays. " If these options won't work for you, you could create a new account with a different e-mail address. I don't think that would be a problem.

    DS 160

    1. I believe it is yes ONLY if you have lived in any other country after turning 16. E.g: You was born in Canada but you spent 8 months teaching English in Japan or studied etc... If you were in Canada before you turned 16 and never stayed outside of Canada more than 6 months, then the answer is no. 2. I think it should have a help/tip section right next to the question. If not then I would try to enter as much as possible, maybe the form after a while will not allow more to enter. Couldn't find a guide to check but I remember they asked me for my travel history for the last five years beside the USA. Also you could try to call the consulate where your interview might be, so they would tell you what they expect...
  12. I think you are just over stressing on it. If you don't get any RFE there should be two more updates before the interview is scheduled status. One will be they completed the review of the fingerprints and one when your case was finished at NBC and ready to be scheduled for an interview. For me between submitting the application and receiving the "Case is Ready to Be Scheduled for An Interview" took around a month and a half with an RFE. Currently there is a partial government shutdown which might affect the background checks run by other agencies. The USCIS is self funded so they are open, but other law enforcement agencies might work with reduced staff which might cause delays... Between ready to be scheduled for an interview and interview scheduled can be months depending on your local office. You can find out your local office speed on this website. https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/ You fill find a min and max number after entering the type of form and local office. The lower number in months is for 50% of the completed applications while the bigger number is 90% completed of the submitted application. Sometimes the website get stuck and won't update until the next step meaning for example I am stuck at fingerprint review was completed even tho if I call the USCIS customer hotline they tell me that the case is ready for interview. There are two websites, depending on your luck one of them is showing the right information https://egov.uscis.gov https://myaccount.uscis.dhs.gov Suggest try to not stress too much about it. If it's available sign up for USPS informed delivery and check your status time to time, but not daily. Try to enjoy and explore your new surroundings, it makes time pass faster
  13. I applied in July, checked the dates on the form I sent in and they are 06/30/2019 and 12/13/17. So I am not sure where did you get that form because that form didn't change since July. Out of curiosity just downloaded the I-485 from their website and the dates are still the same, so they didn't update the form AFAIK at least since July.
  14. Thanks for correcting me. I will look into it to see what's the case here. A lot of stuff might differ between states regarding the DMV, I know it can be frustrating, been there LOL :))) @Nitas_man MO's DMV website also says that you can get a DL while AOS pending (I was heavily counting on that), but it was not the reality when I went there. It might be outdated I guess. Tried a lot of offices but they wanted EAD or my visa and I-94.... I could have got a DL on the K1 visa itself, with 3 months validity, but that would not be good for me since the EAD took much longer than three months, so I decided that I will use my European driver's license ON MY OWN RISK.... (I am not recommending that, because it might have legal and insurance implications depending on the state you are in)
  15. I don't have a GC yet. The DL expiry date will match your EAD's expiry dat . It is a "full" DL same as the one citizens get, but the validity is only a year.... When my DL expires I can renew it using the current EAD with the extension letter, or if I get it by then the new EAD or the greencard if I am lucky. When you get your GC you can get a new license with the expiry date on the GC if your GC is conditional (e.g married less then two years when obtaining it), otherwise you will get a DL with 6 years of validity I think.
