  1. I second that. I know it’s a lot of work getting all your documents ready, and it is a pain to request official documents, have them mailed to you in Canada, etc. but it’s also the homestretch!! I would really recommend having everything with you, and a photocopy. This is not the time to assume you won’t be asked for something or that getting a document isn’t worth the effort. It would be such a shame to be delayed because of it. I had a huge binder with me of everything we submitted to NVC with photocopies (including US spouse birth certificate) + everything they asked for the interview with photocopies + any back up documents that might help (bank statements, plane tickets, literally anything). They only ended up asking for a fraction of what I brought, but I knew I had done everything I could to pass the interview. The interview usually goes smoothly but it’s still nerve wracking. It does make you feel a lot more confident knowing you have everything you could possibly need with you 😊
  2. Congratulations @Tofu!!!!! I’m so happy for you! Welcome and enjoy! 😊 To everyone else, my thoughts are with you. Stay strong 🙏🏻
  3. Congrats!! This is so exciting, I’m glad it didn’t take too long.
  4. Congrats Tofu! I’m sure it’ll get there soon 😊🙏🏻
  5. What a day!!!! Congratulations to all who got their IL or were approved at their interview! Looks like they’re speeding up ☺️😍👏🏻
  6. Hey y’all! Quick update on my SSN non-issue: the card came in quickly after I went to the office and applied in person. It does have the name I asked for on it, which is my married name. We spent sooo much time reading on the forum about what name to put on the petition, and on the DS260, and how it was super important otherwise you’d have to wait 2-3 years in the US (until ROC or citizenship) to have the name corrected, etc... when actually you literally just ask the social security office to put the card in whatever name you want 🙃 🤷🏼‍♀️ Oh well! It worked out. Good luck to tomorrow’s interviewees! 🙏🏻
  7. Sending you good vibes, it makes me sad that you guys have been apart for so long. I hope you get to be reunited soon 🙏🏻💛
  8. Love love love reading all the recent posts about ILs being received 🥰 I’m very excited for all of you guys!!! They’re finally speeding up!
  9. Awesome news!!!!! Congrats everyone, let’s keep it going 👏🏻👏🏻🎉
  10. Hello, I received my green card today! Yay! It took just over a month, I had not expected it to be that quick. I also had a call from the social security office yesterday. The lady said they received the application I mailed in but that I have to come in person, they don’t do mail applications for new cards 🙃 Which is exactly the opposite of what I was told when I called last week to make an in person appointment lol. Oh well. So I’m going in on Monday and she confirmed that they’ll be able to put my married name on my social security card if I want them to, which I’m very happy about!
  11. Okay, thank you for sharing your experience!! I understand the process better now. I have the 10yr GC so next step would be citizenship and passport in my married name I guess. I did send in my marriage certificate with my SSN application, along with a letter asking them to use my married name or at least a hyphenated version. Hopefully they can
  12. The issue is that the SSN has to be in the visa name, then everything else (DL, bank account, etc) will be in the same name. Or if I manage to open a bank account in my married name and everything else is in my maiden name, including my GC, it’ll look like it’s two different people. I guess I could just pay the 500$ to change my GC but it’s a pain.
  13. Yes thank you! I actually checked just after. I had completely forgotten we could look it up. I assume I’ll receive it next week then.
  14. May I ask where you checked this please? Is it on the same page where we paid the immigrant fees? @Hadarah it’s encouraging that you were able to get your SSN card in your married name. Does your visa have your married name on it? It’s so annoying they would only issue my visa in my maiden name even though my passport has both... I’d like my marriage to be recognised here 😒 and not have to go by a different name than the one I’ve been using for over 2 years.
