  1. Hey, I have a question about traveling with my advance parole. I have a passport with my maiden name and an AP is on my new marriage name. I´ll buy the ticket logically on the name which is in my passport, but won´t be a problem at the airport in my home country while i will check-in? I know that they always ask on what we are flying to the US (visas, esta etc.), is marriage certificate enough proof to advance parole document? I am asking this because I hope they have experince with these situations on the airport so they will understand the marriage certificate in my home country. The same question applies when entering the US on custom. Thanks a lot. M.
  2. If I understand the question correctly, - > after entering the USA with a K1 visa, marriage follows -> then request for three more documents as soon as possible after the marriage - a green card and a combo card (which is travel permit and work permit), and during the processing of these cards (which usually takes 5-7 months from submission - the combo card, GC even more) she really can´t leave (or she can, but ->) th usa as it would violate the entire immigration process and it would be very difficult to return to the USA. She can travel when she will get the AP CARD OR GC. But If she planns to travel before entering the USA, that's no problem. But be careful to get her to USA before the visa expires. Congratulation. 🌹
  3. Congratulations If the visa were approved, I wouldn´t be worry about getting visa later than normal time period in your country.
  4. Honestly, first of all, I would not rely on VJ timelines, and second I wouldn't leave US until I´ll have the card in hand, because you can spoil your immigration process and it is clearly stated that if you want this process to lead to a successful conclusion, you can´t leave without the card. It is hard for everybody, the process is unfair to all of us, but this is how it is. It's a cliché, but YOU CAN DO IT, EVERYBODY CAN, everything will be over soon and then you will just relief and hopefully forget how difficult this time was.
  5. Thank you very much, I also read that immigration attornies are skeptical about expediting requests, but people can do it without them, I don´t know, we were so disappointed that I won´t be able to travel so we just tried and as you wrote, probably a few good officers at USCIS.🌹
  6. Thank you very much, I can't advise , there are other experts and they are competent to do so but I can imagine the frustrating waiting that I had to go through and I was mainly helped by people here and therefore I also share, thank you! Time will solve everything, when people try it and it doesn't work for them - nothing happens, but if they try and it works, it can happen a lot. ❗ This process will be soon over for all of us.
  7. Oh, I see on your timeline that you requested for expediting too, so I don't understand it seems unfair to you when you were in similar situation.... And yes, I got combo card, although I only requested expediting for a travel permit, but USCIS doesn´t issue the travel permit separately.....
  8. Exactly, nobody really knows the particular USCIS procedure and it may seem unfair to someone but If so and people are on the same boat as I was, they can try it because really there is nothing to lose. Thank you very much again and I believe and hope that we are a community here to support.
  9. Thank you very much and thank you for the interesting point, even this is possible that it was a coincidence, but depending on when I was checking the expediting timelines other people It seems that USCIS does not inform that the expedite was approved, they only change your case status online, that´s it. I've been checking every single timeline here and people really don´t share information about expditing approvals. But everything is possible....yes
  10. Thanks. I don't know if this is a standard procedure or not, anyone can apply for expediting, it costs nothing, just effort and a lot of frustration ( i mean A LOT) . The processing times have shifted for another three months and we didn´t expected it year ago when we started to plan the wedding, so we wanted to try it, although we didn't count with success in the expediting process. We followed the rules and we did not plan this situation in advance. I think anyone who would have a similar problem would try it instead of to give up....
  11. This is true and thank you for your response!!!! I forgot to mention it.
  12. I just wanted to give a huge thanks to the VisaJourney community and everyone who has ever shared their timelines and experiences. Because we saw one post here about successfully expediting the travel document due to wedding outside the US and that was one of the reasons why we tried it because we had nothing to lose. Below are my detailed timeline and process (which took 46 DAYS from the time we requested the expedite by calling USCIS until card in hand) notes in case anyone is/will be in the same boat as I was. Timeline: 12/5: Submitted I-485, I-765 and I-131 applications 12/7: Received NOA1 in mail, application being processed by National Benefits Center 12/31: Biometrics appointment completed 03/23: Called USCIS and submitted service request to expedite I-131 on the basis of Severe Financial Loss (We didn´t know exactly how to define the expediting reason, because everywhere on the Internet there are posts and infromation that the wedding isn´t a reason for the expedition, but we chose this, because the wedding is also a big waste of money (and this will be OUR wedding, for our families) If it doesn´t take place, but we didn't focus on the money at all in our COVER LETTER!!!!!!!!!(this is very important I guess), we also didn´t use the word WEDDING in the cover letter.) 03/25: Email response from USCIS asking for supporting documents for request to expedite: "Upon receipt of your request for expeditious processing, your case was reviewed and a determination was made that we need additional information to make a decision regarding your request. Please fax proof of a pending job offer to ###-###-####, Attn: AA####, Div #, Team #." 04/02: Faxed over supporting documents to USCIS fax number provided in email response Cover Letter; USCIS Email Response Above (they request you include in your fax); Other documents why we needed to have my case expedited such as my airline ticket to Europe, rental contracts for wedding venue, invoices from contractors for the wedding, everything was officially translated (which was required and mandatory) 4/10: Got notification, that my case for I-485 is Ready to Be Scheduled for An Interview. 4/12: Email response from USCIS: "We received your request to expedite the decision on your application. Your case is currently under review. You will receive a decision or notice of further action shortly. My case status online changed: On April 12, 2019, your request to have your case expedited, referral number XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX, was completed. On April 12, 2019, we sent a response to your request to have your case expedited, referral number XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. On April 12, 2019, your request to have your case expedited, referral number XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX, was assigned to an officer for response. 04/30/2019: Case status online changed to "Card in Production"! 05/03/2019: Case status online changed to "Card was mailed to me" 05/08/2019: AP card in hand! I believe a good cover letter can really make a difference and “No legacy is so rich as honesty.” Because We didn´t focuse on MONEY in the cover letter, my husband (american citizen) comes from Slovakia, so it could also help, because he still has family in Slovakia. We focused on what it means for us If We don´t get my travel permit soon, our disappointment, emotional loss etc.. We tried to make the USCIS officers emphatize with our difficult situation. I think It can really help. They are just people, and it really depends WHO IS GOING TO READ THE COVER LETTER and who is going to hold it in their hands and decide, that´s what We think. Also, we didn't have a lawyer or a congressman to help us. GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY! M.

  14. You don´t need to be worry, cause i had my fingerptints in december a still no update.... VJ timelines are not correct at all I recommend you to check USCIS timelines, not here, because sometimes people get their case expedited and some people are really lucky because they were aprroved before USCIS timelines periods, It also depend on field office where you live and because of this reasons VJ timelines can have a lower average timelines than the reality is.
  15. USCIS officers judge each case differently at different timelins in expediting processes, but I got this email April 12 and since then no update, nothing ...
