  1. What does it mean in practical terms? The USCIS still asks for new forms. Even if judge blocks the enforcement of the rule, you are still expected to use the new forms, unless USCIS specifically says not to. And they can refule to accept the forms if they are not correctly filed.
  2. All updated forms are now posted at USCIS site: https://www.uscis.gov/i-485 https://www.uscis.gov/i-864 https://www.uscis.gov/forms/i-944 I-944 will be required for K-1 applicants. NO changes to I-751 so far, so hopefully RoC will not be affected.
  3. You might want to look into form https://www.uscis.gov/forms/filing-your-form-g-28 which should allow you to regain control of the case. You shouldn't need infopass to change address, but the way info pass done currently (this is a change from what procedure used to be) is by calling USCIS first then explaining why you need in person appointment, then if they agree, they will make one for you on the phone, but typically this is a painful and very hit and miss process.
  4. https://www.uscis.gov/addresschange This outlines procedures for name change, including cases of Domestic abuse. I believe address change can be done online, but USCIS does have a tendency to be slow on the update and updating their system, so I would call a week or two after requesting name change, and make sure it is updated in their system, and they know you now have different field office.
  5. Just because there are legal challenges, doesn't mean there is a stay on implementing the rule. There are precious 10 days left as of today (Oct 4th) and I would not bet that implementation will be postponed, especially with everyone being more concerned with impeachment etc.
  6. For I-485 the only account and tracker that works for us is this https://egov.uscis.gov/casestatus/displayLogon.do You have to create account if you want to see service/expedite requests. This is different from my.uscis.gov account. Don't ask me why.
  7. Unless things changed, they didn't mind the wallets, but yes bags, cellphones, electronic devices of any kind are not allowed. Belts are subject to removal too, but usually they give those back. You are allowed document folders. There are some shady look lorries with improvised storage locker outside, across the street, they will store things for you for about 100 UAH I think. Make sure you get there early enough. You will be waiting outside to be let in so dress accordingly.
  8. Yes, get a few of them. Not sure what the price in New Orleans is, over here it was $15 per copy. They were ready to be printed about a week after marriage, but might take longer. That is the only thing you have to wait for after marriage. In the mean time print out I-94, will need a few of those either, and fill out I-864 + tax transcript. If you do not file it in next 2 weeks or so, the I-864 and I-485 will be no longer valid after Oct 15.
  9. https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/the-press-office/2016/07/06/readout-presidents-call-president-vladimir-putin-russia I am sure you can find more. There is a difference between "classified" as in "sensitive but routine" and "secret to the point we really don't want to talk about why Ambassador Stevens was there in a first place" Regardless, I do believe that incident was subject to multiple investigation by congress, and nothing really came out from it, and not for the lack of trying. As with most things where CIA is involved, and US meddles in other country affairs, the full truth is not ever likely come out. It is not really relevant either. Someone erred on the side of caution, trying to minimize amount of people involved in the operation, someone else didn't realize that attack was specific and targeted. Soldiers and ambassador died. Detailed official report is available https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/CRPT-114hrpt848/pdf/CRPT-114hrpt848.pdf With regards to your previous post, unfortunately, after Pres Clinton incident, and with proliferation of internet, and "politics as a sport" impeachment indeed becoming a political tool.
  10. Because the Ambassador those soldiers were entourage for was involving in things that are classified. Which the little chat President Trump had with President Zelenskiy was meant to be routine "Congrats on winning election on a super long shot, hope we work well together. Cheers!" Certain truth will never come out. In addition, President Obama administration was in general able to run much tighter sip when it came to leaks. occasional open mic moments notwithstanding.
  11. I think impeachment, especially impeachment at this point is a big mistake, unless, miraculously "Nixon Tapes" scenario unfolds, and they actually find something more substantial on "Trump Server" then Zelenskiy memo. Besides, even if it does happen, I, personally, am against it as I find VP Pence to be a lot less palatable than President Trump. Though I imagine Pence will be a lot easier to uproot in a year or so.
  12. I still strongly feel that patronymic should not ever make an appearance on any international document unless it is adapted into a proper middle name without "-ich" or "-evna" etc suffixes.
  13. Most American large cities are completely abhorrent, with some notable exception like NYC, Boston, Chicago that at least retained some basic grasp on need of functional public transportation system. Non-suburbia suburbs like the ones they have on Westcoast are a good compromise, but still have to contemplate "parking" every time you venture out to down downtown area is terrible. The systematic distraction of public transportation system, while also "ghettoizing" inner cities during the US "highway" revolution when automaker lobbies systematically destroyed light rail is one of biggest civil engineering crimes of the 20th century. Something that is country will be recovering for a long time, and entire planet will carry the environmental toll.
  14. Ahh. Ok, that might be different. We got SSN and were able to open joint account, so maybe there was enough there to be able to create an account. If they were able to verify you at SSA you should be fine then. The Employer will have account already, and / or be enrolled in e-Verify, so they would not have security questions issue.
