    Call the SSO again and tell them that the SSA issued a new guidance explicitly prohibiting offices to request immigrants to mail or drop off their documents.

    Ayrton got a reaction from Lemonslice in Those who recently crossed into Canada   
    Just an FYI. Covid Tests for individualized diagnosis must be covered 100% by your Heath Insurance if it's in network. That was determined by the Cares Act. It doesn't matter if it's for traveling. It must be covered. My spouse and I had at least 20 tests between both of us, and they were all covered 100% (even the out of network ones), and we have the cheapest health insurance my company provides.
     
    "Plans and issuers must provide coverage without imposing any cost-sharing requirements (including deductibles, copayments, and coinsurance), prior authorization, or other medical management requirements for COVID-19 diagnostic testing of asymptomatic individuals when the purpose of the testing is for individualized diagnosis or treatment of COVID-19."
     
    https://www.hhs.gov/coronavirus/cares-act-provider-relief-fund/for-patients/index.html
     
    The exceptions mentioned on the act are tests for "public health surveillance" and "employment". Getting tested before a trip definitely falls under the individualized diagnosis and must be covered by your insurance.
     
    If you don't have health insurance, then find a place that offers the test for free, like CVS and Walgreens (they send the bill to the government).

    Your current salary is your current income (unless you also have other sources of income). That's what should matter.
     
    You can combine the biometrics fee with the application fee.

    Ayrton got a reaction from Adventine in Remote job from home country while adjusting status   
    I don't think you realize that the problem isn't if you're gonna get your Greencard or not after doing unauthorized work. You will get your Greencard, there's no questions about that, because unauthorized work is forgiven for spouses of USC applying for adjustment of status. But this doesn't mean that the work you're doing is authorized and legal. And there might be other consequences for it.
     
    Immigration is only one leg of the "US government". Taxes are another one. Foreign entities that employs a US person, which you were, is supposed to get an EIN and send all your information to IRS. Depending on the country, they are even supposed to collect social security and medicare.
     
    So remember, even though immigration doesn't care about your unauthorized work for a foreign company, other US entities might come to haunt you later on.

    There's no petition for K2. The kids are listed on the K1 application. Later on, when the case is transferred to the embassy, the kids also fill out the DS160 and go to the interview, if necessary, with the parent.

    Ayrton got a reaction from Chancy in I-693, why wait?   
    Because not all Local field offices has the same wait time. Seattle for example has a wait time of more than 2 years to get an interview. There's also the case where they don't approve the GC on the spot, and then it takes months to do so, making the medical age out.
     
    Not everyone's situation is the same.

    Ayrton got a reaction from randy32 in AoS I-485 I-130 I-765 I-131 Package Denied and Returned 3 Times So Far... Are We the Only Ones? Congresswoman has been contacted   
    What bothered me the most is that the attorney keeps refiling the same forms that have been rejected several times. If it was rejected for any reason besides payment method, it means that there's something wrong with the package and you and the attorney should go over the forms. Has your husband even signed the forms? Have you even signed the 864? Did you check everything on the forms before they submitted them?  A lawyer will only put on the forms what you tell them to put on there. They are not the ones going through the process, so they don't know specific details of the application unless you both tell them and make sure it was added to the applications.
     
    The good thing about this is that rejected forms are not charged by USCIS. They return the payment method, so you didn't actually pay for 3 AOS application. Go meet the attorney, go through every single question of the form and I'm sure you will find where the mistake was.

    Ayrton got a reaction from JL & ML in Renewal EAD/AP ( combo card )   
    You won't find on the USCIS website specifically saying that you can send at 180 days. But when you have a combo card, and want the combo card card to be renewed, you may send the 131 form with the 765 form at 180 days. That's what I did, that's what everyone else has been doing in the past months. Check the Aug 2019/Sept 2019/Oct 2019 posts to see everyone that sent them together and got approved in 1 or 2 months.

    Ayrton got a reaction from Chancy in Adjustment of Status - Missing Vaccinations   
    First of all, is the DS3025 marked complete or is it marked that he refused to take the vaccines? If it's complete, there's nothing else he needs to do.
     
    If it's marked he refused, then yes, he needs to take the vaccines and get all of them transcribed into an I-693. But this can be done at anytime before the interview. Don't delay filing for AOS because of that.

    Ayrton got a reaction from Chancy in Social Security Card for approved I485   
    The SSN application from the EAD form is only sent to the SSA after approval of the form, and since yours was cancelled, you must go in person to get a SSC. Your 485 didn't have the SSN option, so that's gonna do nothing.

    You won't receive a notice until the status change to "Interview was Scheduled". It can literally take from weeks to years for that to happen depending on your local field office.

    Why Head of Household? Someone married only has 2 options: Married filing Jointly or married filing separately. To file as head of household, someone must be considered unmarried at the end of the year and meet a couple other requirements. Since you came as a K1, highly doubt those requirements were met. But this is a IRS issue, not an immigration issue.
     
    Take what you have to the interview. Not everyone are able to have joint bills, bank accounts. If the IO asks about it, explain the situation.

    That's not how it works. As a K1 (before filing for AOS), you're only entitled to an EAD, that is not free and will expire when the I-94 expires. No AP.
