  1. Hi! I completely understand your frustration. Luckily, as of 3 days ago, we finally got the green card. It turned out that my husband's visa packet had been lost. Of course, the USCIS never gave us this info. The way we were able to find out was by contacting our Senator, and his office sent a inquiry to the USCIS on our behalf. They were able to figure out that the visa packet was lost, and once we had that information we were able to make an infopass appointment. At the appointment they filed a Lost Visa Packet form for us and a little less than a month later, we got the card. Neither the ombudsman nor direct contact with the USCIS did anything for us which is so frustrating. My advice is to contact your senator. I am positive we never would have had any success or even gotten any information if my senator had never gotten involved. If you have any more questions at all, feel free to message me! I'd love to help. And good luck!!!
  2. I'm confused. Is it the immigrant visa fee? We were told if we paid it before we enter the US, it would be fine. When I look at our case status online, it says we paid our immigrant visa fee and our card should come in the mail within 120 days. It didn't say anything about a different fee to pay. Where can I pay this new fee? Thanks for your help!
  3. I paid for it on September 12th, before we even entered the US.
  4. Thanks so much for your response! That makes me feel better to know you went through something similar. Hopefully know that I've reached out to them I will hear good news about it soon. Thank you!
  5. I think maybe part of the problem is that We filed overseas at the USCIS office in Seoul, South Korea, so it has made everything so much more complicated. Good luck with the bio appointment! I hope it all goes well.
  6. Yeah, for the longest time it said that they received our payment and we should get the green card within 120 days, and if we haven't we should put in a request that we never got our card. I did this about a month ago. Now it says that on March 21st, they have accepted our request and that it is in process. I'm so frustrated with all the waiting! Thanks for your response.
  7. Yeah, the work thing sucks because I know they're wrong about it, it has just been a real pain in the ###. Thanks for saying you don't think something is wrong, that is comforting. Making an appointment is surely what our next step has to be, I was just hoping that somehow it could be resolved using the website to put in a request for it. Thanks for your help and advice!
  8. Hey everybody. My husband got CR-1 visa approval in August 2018. We paid the visa fee on September 12th, and entered the US on October 25th 2018. It has now been well over 120 days, and still no sign of his green card. He got his SSN shortly after arriving. He has the I-551 in his passport with 1 year endorsement, but his work is still badgering him for his actual green card. I have called, put in requests, and contacted the Ombudsman but we are still waiting for a response. I put in my request with the USCIS weeks ago and was told I'd hear a response on March 21st 2019 , but heard nothing. Even though he has been approved, and has the I-551 in his passport, I am still worried something is wrong. Any advice? Has anyone gone through anything similar? Thanks in advance for your help.
  9. Hello. I have prepared my forms and taxes for 2017 and 2016 to use for my 1-864 visa sponsorship for my husband. However, I did not file taxes in 2015 as I was still a student and dependent on my parents then. Should I include their taxes? Or will the two years suffice? Thank you.
  10. As I stated, we have a lease with both of our names. By a real wedding, I meant a wedding that was celebrated with our friends and family and had many witnesses. Obviously I am aware that any marriage ceremony is a real wedding.
  11. Hi all! I am submitting my I-130 package on Monday and I am wondering if the things listed below would constitute enough evidence for proof of our marriage: Copy and translation of lease of shared apartment Receipts of money sent from spouse to my US savings account Official wedding photos Copy of proof of purchase of engagement ring Posts from family members on fb about our wedding My husband is from Ireland and I am from the US. We live in Korea together. I have read that the thing that matters is to see we've spent a lot of time together. Since we've lived in the same place for 3 years and not have a shared apartment/ have proof of a real wedding, do you think this is enough evidence? Thanks for your help!
  12. I am going to get my marriage certificate translated today. Do you guys know if I need to notarize my marriage certificate or the translations to submit them? Thanks for any help!
