  1. Have you guys gone yet? We are supposed to travel in a few weeks to my husband's home country and we are nervous because we haven't traveled yet and don't want to do anything to risk our newly obtained GC.
  2. Hi! My husband received his CR1 Visa in May of this year from Costa Rica. We have a trip planned in a few weeks together to visit his mom, but I am nervous to travel. I know that our documents are all valid, unexpired, and legitimate, but I fear that we would have some horrible border control person and they'd give us a hard time re-entering. After all the years apart, it is difficult for me to risk this. Can anyone who has a similar visa/ situation give their experience or reassure us that traveling will probably be ok? Thanks!
  3. Okay awesome! It’ll come quick! Ours took only a few days after going
  4. Since it’s past the tax date, they will want 2018 or a letter of extension/ exemption as to why you didn’t file. If you have that documentation, bring that along with 2017.
  5. My husband doesn’t speak English yet either! It’s a learning process and we communicate in his language just fine happily here in the USA!! The USA is a mix of people and English certainly isn’t a requirement. I find it funny that the person who didn’t want to offend you, doesn’t even know how to properly spell “offense” ! Good luck in your process!
  6. I checked it too! All the office told me was to wait 3 weeks and if they didn’t send us it, they could issue us one. It never came so they issued us one. If the border officer doesn’t do something correctly when you enter, you’ll never receive a SSN even if box was checked off. (That’s what our SSN office said has been happening lately)
  7. Took 6 weeks for us. We also had to go to SSN office to get the SSN card! I called my town hall and we did not have to register our marriage anywhere! Just have extra copies of the certificate from abroad for insurance etc. I called USCIS and they told me when my GC was issued.
  8. I had my interview in May and by the next Day it was changed to “issued” and it only took 3 days to receive it! We had a very quick turn around
  9. Get a PO Box and notify them ASAP of address change (I assume you can put a PO Box?) our GC took 5 full weeks to come so you will have some time. I called USCIS on Friday 7/19 and the GC was made 7/18. Our US entry was 6/15 so it took over a month to create basically. It should be totally fine. Good luck.
  10. Just happened to me too. The border officer didn’t do something correctly so we didn’t get the SSN. We went to the local SSN office and our SSN was issued within 3 business days. 5 days after that our GC came. This all just happened last week and our date of entry was 6/15. It took over a month. Don’t worry.
  11. Hello, Our entry to the USA on a Cr1 visa was 6/15, four weeks ago today. I confirmed our address etc with the CO and showed him our receipt for paying back the GC fee & he said okay 7-10 days. We still don’t have it. Anyone know who to contact or how we can see where it is? I don’t want USCIS to say we have to re-pay because I already paid. thanks
  12. He lived in Quepos and went to what he said was just Seguro Social, like a small clinic that is associated with the hospital and they do vaccinations and small things like that. No appointment, but you’d have to find out where one is located near you! Yes this process is long and tough, but it’ll be worth it!
