  1. Daughter cannot stay in the US if she is over 21. No grounds to adjust. There are no visas available in her category (adult child LPR). If you married her mother before her 18th birthday I believe she would be the adult child of a USC. But there are no visas available in that category, too. She needs to leave before she is out of status. As she cannot stay in the US and wait for her visa to be current (can't adjust when out of status). You cannot do anything to help her stay in the US. Sorry. ETA: Make sure she leaves before her 6 months is up. Or she won't be able to visit her mother (visa will be revoked). She might also gain a 3 or 10 year ban (depending on how long she overstays).
  2. I'm sure when you say you got your 10 year GC before the 2 year expired you mean before the extension letter expired? 2 year GC would have expired November 2018. But, you posted in 2019 you were still waiting for your 10 year GC.... Did you receive 10 year GC with or without interview? And had you filed for divorce before you received the 10 year GC? I know you said you divorced in 2020... but there are 12 months in the year... and depending on the state a divorce can take a year or so before it can be finalized... I ask questions because I am trying to help you figure these things out and prepare you for the questions a lawyer will ask when you consult with them... But, the easiest solution is to get your A-File so you see what USCIS sees...
  3. I think because you don't remember many things clearly. You should request your A-File. Go here: https://www.uscis.gov/records/request-records-through-the-freedom-of-information-act-or-privacy-act Then once you read your immigration history and the concerns of the CO you can decide if you should apply for citizenship again. We can try to help you but as @African Zealot says we are not helping here because your answers are vague/ you don't remember things clearly so the only solution is to pull your records. Final question: Did you pass the English test and the Civics test?
  4. Questions: What date did you get married? When did you apply for adjustment of status? When did you receive your GC? How many years did you receive/when did it expire: 2 or 10? (When) Did you apply for removal of conditions? When did you receive 10 year green card? When did you divorce (how many years were you married)? When did you apply for citizenship.... Reading your first post... the officer suggested you withdraw the N400... but did she tell you anything else about why she believes you should withdraw/did she ask you any other questions? I would request a FOIA (freedom of information act)- information about your immigration history and comments about this interview and previous interviews as it appears due to your "jet lag" and being "not conscious" you do not remember the interview well... and it will be a good refresher and will help you decide IF not WHEN you should apply for US citizenship...
  5. Foreign income only counts if it will continue in the US. And you need to show proof it will (letter from company). One can also use beneficiary’s income if it will continue in the US.
  6. @dnhk it is very strange to be asked about your marriage to USC. I thought if you applied under 5 year rule they would not look at your marriage… I would call Jim Hacking. He has a great show and he can give you some good advice… But, I wonder what other type of questions did they ask? Did they ask why you got divorced and when you got divorced? Did you only come to US because of your spouse or were you already on US when you met and married?
  7. @Patrick_M Germany is a fairly easy consulate. But I suggest you have assets in an easy to understand format (move $70k or so to US based bank account). This accomplishes two things 1.) Shows assets are in US so accessible 2.) Show USCs intent to relocate to USA. Lawyers like straightforward cases… using assets complicates things. If you read my thread you’ll see we had to remind the consulate we were using assets and we made sure to bring updated bank statements to interview.
  8. We did done that move from korea to us so needed to change that name 😉
  9. Congratulations! It’s great to hear another student visa success story!
  10. Someone else encountered a similar issue of the case being blocked. Read the thread here:
  11. Instructions from DV- 2024: You must provide all of the following information to complete your entry. Failure to accurately include all the required information will make you ineligible for a DV.  1. Name – last/family name,first name, middle name – exactly as it appears on your passport, if you have a passport (for example, if your passport shows only your first and last/family name, please list your last/family name and then first name; do not include a middle name unless it is included on your passport. If your passport includes a first, middle and last/family name, please list them in the following order:  last/family name, first name, middle name). If you have only one name, it must be entered in the last/family name field.    2. Gender – male or female. 3. Birth date – day, month, year. 4. City where you were born. 5. Country where you were born – Use the name of the country currently used for the place where you were born. 6. Country of eligibility for the DVprogram – Your country of eligibility will normally be the same as your country of birth. Your country of eligibility is not related to where you live or your nationality if it is different from your country of birth. If you were born in a country that is not eligible, please review the Frequently Asked Questions to see if there is another way you may be eligible.https://cl.usembassy.gov/wp-content/uploads/sites/104/DV-2024-Instructions.pdf I could be wrong. And maybe someone will correct me... But because the birthdate you entered on the DV does not match the birthdate on your passport. And you have no documentation to show why you chose the random day. Even though you won... you are ineligible for a DV.
  12. I answered the question (IMO) already I'm sorry OP. But if you won once. Hopefully you will win again next year.
  13. You answered your own question in your first post. This is the verification process they use…
  14. Where will you be applying? Maybe look into timelines for people from your city to see if on average they’re waiting 4 months or 1+ year… not sure how important having “valid” documentation is and if you’re okay with living with an expired green card while you wait on citizenship to process or if you’re more comfortable with the plan of rescheduling the interview or oath ceremony or interview/ same day oath (tell us your location so we can help you figure out what to expect).
