  1. My bank posted the transaction as USCIS Phoenix payment ARC with the check number and date but there is no photocopy of the check available online. This is the first time I have been aware of this horrible business practice and it’s no surprise that it comes from the US government (who else could get away with it)? I’ll try your advice if and when I try to call them next time. Thanks.
  2. 6/21/22 - I-751 petition mailed to USCIS In Arizona. 6/27/22 - received G-1145 E-Notification of petition acceptance. 6/29/22 - check for $680 was cashed. Have not received I-797C in the mail as of 8/5/22. Internet search on wait time states “Notice of Action typically arrives 4 to 6 weeks after filing”. Last time I called USCIS with a problem (January 2022), I spoke with an automated robot which messaged me a link with “information” and then hung up. Repeated attempts to speak with a human being at USCIS were met with the same result (hanging up). Any suggestions how to find out the status of my petition?
  3. Thanks Family. Makes more sense now. At this point the conditional resident is housewife and the American citizen/spouse is retired schoolteacher. We are living comfortably on savings, pension and social security, and buying a new home. So at this time employment is not a major concern as we are happy with a more traditional marriage.
  4. I already have a big pile of joint financial documents to submit. Hard for me to believe that’s all they’re interested in. Does anyone submit 2 sided copies? My I-485 petition was 90+ pages, mostly one sided copies. One person on VJ claimed they were going to submit an I-751 petition weighing 3 1/2 lbs! Quote re: payment fees are on page 2 of the I-751 instructions, so if it is incorrect USCIS needs to clarify it. Very confusing. Found a good sample I-751 affidavit: https://citizenpath.com/cpwp/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/I-751-Affidavit-Sample.pdf Says it doesn’t need to be notarized.
  5. Preparing to file I-751: 1) So the I-751 instructions says to include “affidavits sworn to or affirmed by at least two people…” Specifically, do these affidavits have to be notarized? Can the affidavit be from a relative in another country, or does it have to be from a US citizen/resident? 2) Instructions say “if you are the… lawful permanent resident spouse you do not need to include a biometric services fee at the time this petition is submitted…” So just to verify, I do not have to include $85 with the filing fee? Thanks in advance for any help.
  6. My wife got her green card 9/1/20. Expires 9/1/22. Is it still good advise to file I-751 one year in advance? We were thinking of traveling to the Philippines 12/21 to 1/22, if the country is open with no quarantine by then 🤞. Is USCIC likely to schedule an interview during that time? We are living in the Fresno, CA district. I read that it takes a year to schedule the interview and/or possibly they will remove conditions with no interview...
  7. As I understand it, the Philippines is only allowing persons who have been vaccinated in the Philippines (about 1%) to enter their country with a 7 day quarantine in a government approved hotel. Persons from other countries, such as spouse of Philippine citizens still have to complete 10 hotel quarantine and 4 day home quarantine. Correct me if I’m wrong because the rules are changing daily... So, persons who have been vaccinated with Sinovac which is about 56 - 65% effective will be allowed to enter, while persons who are vaccinated with Moderna or Pfizer which are about 94- 95% effective will be excluded. Presumably because Philippines is unable to verify who has been vaccinated in another country and does not trust the authenticity of foreign vaccination cards.
