  1. Congratulations friend 🎉🎉🎉🎉 you overcame a lot and I’m very happy for you 🎉🎉🎉
  2. Yes. Notifications always come first, after, USCIS will notify you of card in production and give you a tracking number. Good luck 👍🏽 🍀
  3. So today I received an update on my ead/ap renewal which i sent in july, saying that the case was closed because of benefit received by other means 🙏🏽 Good luck to all of my friends still waiting🍀 i have successfully got my new ssn and REAL id 💁🏽‍♀️ Don’t waste any time aaaaand when going to update your docs I recommend you guys go to lower Manhattan (ssa in williams st and dmv in Greenwich) because the process is very organized and everyone is up to date regarding immigration 💁🏽‍♀️ Good luck friends 🍀
  4. Connections 🎉🎉🎉 2018 filers almost done🎉🎉🎉
  5. call USCIS and ask for a tier 2 so that they can call you back with the date
  6. It is obvious this person is intending aos from vwp, which they are able to do. I am also pretty sure people on vwp or any other type of visa that would forgive aos, will say they’re getting married at poe. So that’s how it is not really allowed per say. Can you do it? Sure. Should you? Debatable, if you just came into the country.
  7. 1) The fact that they are “able” to do something doesn’t mean is the right way to do it. I will support MY opinion as correct. They should go through the consular processing or k1. 1.1) I ,for a fact, am aware that the legal entry in other types of visas other than K1, are valid to marry and adjust status from. They should only wait 90 days from entry to prevent the whole “immigrant intent” scrutiny and they are also able to adjust their status parting from that legal entry when being petitioned by a USC. What I’m saying is: Do it the right way. Especially when your immigration file has been flagged. Who can guarantee that they didn’t flag it as a no aos, which is a practice that some officers are doing even on b visas as of lately? An opinion from a random internet person is not legal advice and every case is different. Just because it worked for some doesn’t mean it’ll work for others, even if presented with an exact replica of a certain case. I have witnessed cases being completely thrown out just because of the 30/60/90 rule. I have also seen cases approved. Results may vary. That is why doing it the right way guarantees higher approval chances. 2) an immigration lawyer is a professional on the subject matter, a person who has dedicated their life to study this particular area of the law in the US and has earned the right to that “opinion”. Toodles 🎩
  8. Check the rules on immigrant intent. I think they should consult with an experienced immigration lawyer first before making a mistake based on opinions of people. The only entry in which people come to the country with the intent to get married is the K1 visa. The legitimate legal way to do it.
  9. If she’s under visa waiver program, she has to go back home and if they’re ready to get married they get married in her home country. If they’re flagging her profile is probably because she’s misusing her vwp and staying in the US too long and too often and spending more time here than you do at home shows immigrant intent, so the best route is for him to marry her in her home country and file CR1 because there’s is a huge chance they’ve marked her file as immigrant intent and that could cause an unnecessary denial of a future adjustment because she’s in a visa waiver which is only good for 90 days and if you marry within those 90 days you came here to get married and jump the immigration line, besides the fact that her immigration profile has been flagged. Good luck friends 🍀
  10. Congratulations 🎊🎊🎈🎈🎉🎉 even though 7 weeks was kind of absurdity 🙄 but I promise you’ll have your gc in one week after that update and no more USCIS for the next year and 9 months🎉
  11. Dear VJ friends, Ever since getting my GC I’ve been getting all my documents up to date. I went to the SSA to update my SSN card to the permanent card without the DHS tag (this can be frowned upon, i work for a company that will not accept clients whose ssn shows that tag😒) and to update my driver’s license to the REAL ID, because as of 10/2020, you will not be able to board domestic flights with your state ID if it’s not REAL ID, besides the fact that it is only available for LPRs and USCs, which means you don’t have to have your GC on you all the time. So start today!!! Good luck to all of you still waiting and for the ones awaiting their document 🍀
  13. This specific forum is for people that filed in 2018 in ny and as you can see, we waited for a very long time 😪 but do NOT let that website fool you. I was a Brooklyn filer and based on that site i should still be waiting for a GC. I mean it did take 18 months since filing date to interview and approval but it didn’t take 3 years like the site suggested! Something else in your favor is that 2019 filers are being processed last in first out, so you’ll probably get summoned for your interview right away and skip all the anxiety driven nonsense 💁🏽‍♀️ Good luck friend and welcome 👍🏽🍀
  14. Financial commingling is one of the most important evidences. Joint bank accounts(With activity), health, life, dental, car insurance, rental agreements, call records, proof of address, etc., together with what you sent. That’s what we did and I got the green card no RFE 🌚 good luck 👍🏽🍀
