  1. Hi there! Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials!! In the job letter the company did mention that the job offer was conditional based on me receiving my EAD in a timely manner. They had stated 14 days... it did take longer but they used the 14 days as almost a push for the expedite to happen faster. This is what the letter that the Controller sent me to include in my EAD expedite: To Whom it May Concern: My name is [Name] and I am the Controller and Hiring Manager for a Senior Property Accountant Role at [Company]. I am writing this letter on behalf of [Name], at your request, to specify our interest in her employment. This role has been vacant for approximately 3 months. I have interviewed several different candidates and have reviewed well over 50 resumes for this role. [Name] resume and performance during her interview was far superior to any of the other candidates. Our company is a property management company. [Name] has performed property management accounting functions for the past 7+ years. Of all of our candidates, she was the single candidate that had both property management accounting experience as well as experience with Yardi, our enterprise operations system. Having both of these tools on her resume, makes her an exceptional candidate and allows us to hire someone who should be able to jump right into the role and assume responsibilities faster than an inexperienced accountant. If we are unable to offer employment to [Name], it would be extremely disappointing and costly in additional advertising, as well as training costs, as I would need to accept a candidate without the same level of experience. I am happy to discuss this with you further if necessary. Feel free to contact me [Phone] or by email . Hopefully this helps! If you have any more questions don't hesitate to ask!!
  2. Evening All! Forgive me if this is in the wrong section. If it is could someone kindly move it to the right one? Thanks! I would like to go ahead and give some background on my immigration process thus far: I moved to New York on June 14th via K1 visa. Got married to my LOVE ❤️ on July 1st (Canada Day! lol), and sent my AOS package along with the EAD and AP on July 9, 2019 to the National Benefits Center. NOA 1 dated July 15, 2019, Bio-metrics was done on August 5, 2019. My field office is Albany, New York. A few weeks back I was on indeed looking at jobs curious to see if I would find my particular job available in the area that I'm living. I was checking periodically before and never had any luck finding my particular position: Senior Property Accountant. I was worried that I was in a niche career and that I wouldn't be able to find my positions since the area I live in generally doesn't have loads of condominiums/residential buildings which means they have 0 need for Property Management Firms and that I was going to have to settle with choosing a different path for my career once I received the EAD. The thought of downgrading position and work experience was not sitting well with me (even though it was my choice, so I'd have to live with it regardless). Well it happened I found the position I had been hoping I'd find: Senior Property Accountant at a nationally recognized company. So I thought "what the heck, let me apply". After waiting a few days I received an email to come in for an Interview. Well my interview went perfect and even before she did her final interview she sent me a tentative job offer contingent on getting my EAD expedited. So here comes the rest: October 1, 2019 - called USCIS and requested the EAD expedite October 4, 2019 - received email to send in additional documents October 9, 2019 - faxed in cover letter from Company describing position and reason for wanting them to expedite the EAD, job offer, job posting from indeed, and a copy of my resume October 17, 2019 - notification that they received my documents October 24, 2019 - notification that CARD IS BEING PRODUCED!!!! I requested the expedite based on financial hardship to the company. But I'll be honest it wasn't extreme urgent need, at least it wasn't explained that way in their cover letter. I was honestly worried that I wasn't going to get it and my only opportunity to work in my same field was going to slip right past me. But it happened, I got lucky, and they approved my EAD expedite. I should receive the card soon! I just can't believe it! I'm writing this to give others hope that you can do it too, so long as you provide them with what they are looking for. I am living proof that there is no harm in asking, it's a testament to all those out there that it truly never hurts to try. You literally have nothing to lose. Okay excited rant over... lol If you have any questions on the process or anything at all please ask. I'd be more than happy to help!! If it wasn't for visajourney I wouldn't have been able to make it through this far so this a big THANK YOU to everyone out there on this beautiful forum!
  3. Lets hope they just discard the other two fee forms and use the one for the I-485!!! Its been taking a bit longer than usual to process everything so keep an eye out for the text notifications (if you sent the form in).
  4. When you file the I-485 the fees for the I-765 & I-131 are waived. You should have only sent $1,225.00.
  5. That should have said 2019! I will definitely wait then! Thank you!
  6. Hi everybody!! Quick question: we got legally married on July 1, 2018 received the certified marriage certificate 2 days later. I would like to change my canadian passport to my married name however I am not sure if I can because of the K1 Visa/I-94 attached to it. So basically am I able to do this? Quick Note: I already sent in the AOS, EAD and AP waiting for NOA1 (on these documents I used my new last name) Any insight would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  7. Congratulations!!!! 🍾🎉
  8. I've tried searching the CBP website but couldn't find anything... so maybe its not needed... but I still wanted to ask here first (just in case)... Does a form need to be filled out with the items I'm bringing with me when I move? I found CBP Form 3299 however this doesn't seem like it would apply to me as all my items are accompanying me on my trip up to Johnstown, New York. I'll be entering at the Lewiston/Queenston Bridge on June 14, 2019. If any of you lovelies could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated!
  9. That was definitely me!! Number 2! 🤣🤣 I was totally freaking lmao such a good moment could have used a hug 🤗
  10. Visa was delivered !!!! HOLY MOLY CANNOLI!!!! I'm sorry I'm just so excited and amazed. I couldn't have gotten this far without visa journey so honestly THANK YOU everyone!
  11. I was just there yesterday and they did not let on of our fellow v-j'ers petitioner into the building at all. She waited outside on the sidewalk.
  12. LOL no way! I did my due diligence thankfully 🤣 I read on the formal website that the medical is valid for 1 year.. past that time a new medical is going to be required. This sums it up quite nicely: Q: Do I need to complete another full medical to adjust status? Per Section 1245.5 in the Code of Federal Regulations, a medical examination shall not be required of an applicant for adjustment of status who entered the United States as a non-immigrant spouse, fiancée, or fiancée of a United States citizen or the child of such an alien as defined in section 101(a)(15)(K) of the Act and §214.2(k) of 8 CFR chapter I if the applicant was medically examined prior to, and as a condition of, the issuance of the non-immigrant visa; provided that the medical examination occurred not more than 1 year prior to the date of application for adjustment of status.
  13. Yes all of the necessary boxes are checked!! Doctor Signed good to go!!!
