  1. While I can't answer your question directly if you just got DQ by the time your husband actually has the interview you would have several more months of pay stubs. I'd accumulate them as lonng as you can and a month before the interview send him a FedEx or UPS envelope with all of the pay stubs. If it's another 6 months that gives a better and possibly more reliable snapshot of your real income.
  2. If the date at the time of entry at POE is over 2 years it will automatically be issued as IR1. You don't have to do anything.
  3. Of course if everybody expedites they are all in the same line again, albeit the expedited line but the same outcome! LOL Jus kidding. Good luck with the expedite.
  4. Interesting. I suspect I'm a few months out from them scheduling our interview since we were DQ June 15 so hopefully I can download the transcript for 2019 before the interview.
  5. Well, since it is posted under the sub-forum of Visa Journey titled IR-1 / CR-1 Spouse Visa Case Filing and Progress Reports it is both accurate and appropriate. You are free to start another thead under the applicable section for your type of visa. I hope you find this reply both helpful and convincing. Personally I don't want to wade through non IR/CR traffic on a thread that isn't relevant to me so I'm glad it is limited to the visas for this specific section of the forum.
  6. Correct and I do understand that. I was just replying to Sparkles surprise about being June and not filed yet. They might not have been aware of the tax filing extension. Depending on how long my filing takes to show up on the IRS website and when the interview is eventually scheduled for my wife and daughter will determine if we will be able to take a 2019 transcript or a copy of the full 1040 with W2 to our interview.
  7. Taxes aren't due until July 15 this year due to COVID. I just filed mine yesterday.
  8. If the daughter is born to a USC doesn't she qualify as a citizen already? Why would she need to interview or am I missing something? A person born abroad in wedlock to a U.S. citizen and an alien acquires U.S. citizenship at birth if the U.S. citizen parent has been physically present in the United States or one of its outlying possessions prior to the person’s birth for the period required by the statute in effect when the person was born (INA 301(g), formerly INA 301(a)(7)). https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/legal/travel-legal-considerations/us-citizenship/Acquisition-US-Citizenship-Child-Born-Abroad.html#:~:text=A%20person%20born%20abroad%20in,prior%20to%20the%20person's%20birth.
  9. Depends on the embassy. It's not a blanket statement. Everyone needs to look at their embassy-specific rules. For example the embassy in Vietnam expressly states that the original birth certificate of the petitioner should be available. I know, I had to have mine shipped to Vietnam.
  10. Just saw on the "Case complete to Interview" thread where a guy got his expedite, his wife was interviewed HCMC June 23 and approved and she's flying to US on Thursday. Congrats to him and glad to see things moving again!

    I think so but I haven't followed it closely as I am CR1. They definitely are only processing the CR/IR applications.

    You are correct VIetnam will only be processing CR1, CR2, IR1 and IR2 applications. It is unknown when they will start processing K1 visas. They were to be open and starting regular processing of the above visa interviews that were cancelled in March, April and May starting today, June 29th. https://vn.usembassy.gov/partial-resumption-of-immigrant-visa-processing/
  13. My wife's daughter's birth certificate is stamped similar. They didn't bother to file it with the government until she was around 2 years old. Common in the smaller towns or rural farmers.
