  1. Yeah, sorry. Blanked out for a second. Looks like interview it is.
  2. What stage of the process are you in? You can sideload at NVC stage. You can also send him to interview with more proofs. If you have time, you should probably go back to visit once more before the interview. I would also be prepared to file CR1 if your K1 goes to AP purgatory or gets denied. Of course you'll have to marry first then do CR1. You can do another wedding in the states later.
  3. That's not true. They aren't being honest. I am a revert and married my Algerian husband there. I had a simple letter written by my Imam in Texas with two witness' signatures to prove my shehada. I had no trouble with any gvmnt agency, religious or foreign ministry. Unfortunately Algeria is full of people in those jobs who change the rules according to who they want. There is a big mosque in Chevalley, near Algiers, that does official shehada certificates for reverts. You might have your fiance ask.
  4. Thank you. So I'll write my own template! Also, do I just need to do it for 2018? They don't need for the past three years, correct?
  5. Hi everyone. Some of you may remember that I was living in Algeria with my husband for the past 2 years. I've moved back to the states recently and have established domicile. We are in month 10 of our journey and waiting patiently for our NOA2. (We're at hellishly slow Nebraska.) We have a joint sponsor because I won't have enough established time at my new job. I didn't file taxes though because I wasn't even living in the US. So how do I write a letter stating that? What I mean is, is there a template to use? I've Googled but am getting conflicting information. Thank you in advance for your help!
  6. I just wanted to update anyone following this thread: I moved back here to the US on June 28th and am in the process of finding job and apartment. We've found a different co-sponsor who doesn't reply on SSI/SSDI for income. We are currently at 9 months waiting for NOA2 at the Nebraska Service Center. Our 2nd anniversary will come this month, making our case IR1. Hopefully not too much longer!
  7. The woman does not have to be re-married for the ex husband to marry again. Also OP: I married here in Algiers, two years ago and have been living here since. It took us 4 months to finally process all the papers. Also don't let him tell you that you can come and do Fatiha to marry until your papers are processed. Imams are not allowed to do religious ceremonies without a registered marriage license and family book. While in Islam it's normal for widows and divorcees to re-marry, here in the capital,it's very hard for divorced women to marry again. However, it IS common for an Algerian man to marry a divorced woman from outside his country. There are many British, Australian and American women married to Algerian men, who are divorced. Large age differences are not common with the woman being older and children are very important unless the husband is older as well or you will be a second, third or fourth wife. Which in that case you'll have to marry and live here because polygany is of course illegal in the US. I'd be happy to answer any other questions. I'm moving back inshaAllah this Friday to the US to re-establish domicile and get a job but like I said, I've lived here for 2 years so I'm pretty up on the cultural norms and can help you understand a few things maybe. ☺
  8. Actually Lufthansa and hopefully Tampa, Florida. I always fly Lufthansa from Algeria and it's good pricing so I'll check Frankfurt. Thank you again.
  9. Ok, thank you! When did he fly through there? And he has only an Algerian passport?
  10. Hi everyone! My husband is Algerian. I'm wondering if there is a central website that shows which countries need transit visas and which don't? It's hard to book flights when I'm not sure where he will need one and where he won't. Thanks in advance!
  11. I stumbled upon your thread. We are not in the banned countries but I wanted to let you know that I'm sending prayers your way that you all have some good news soon. ❤️ I hope you don't mind if I posted here.
  12. We printed ours off my phone and I glued them to white paper. My husband made color copies and I left the originals (the glued ones) with him to take to the interview later on. I'm sure it's fine.
  13. I am a USC and currently living in Algiers. I'm not sure if you're still going through the process or what but I will help you all that I can. I can certainly utilize my husbands brain for navigating things here. It's a tough place to get anything done for sure but rest assured many people have done it before you.
  14. I agree. I was just piggybacking off of @adil-rafa and @EandH0904's comments regarding why they may ask why someone didn't marry in Morocco.
