  1. Mine went to under review right after my interview in March… didn’t hear anything until mid Sept and finally got the green card in the mail yesterday
  2. Mate, I’d be getting married and going CR1 while you finalise NZ partner visa which also make her eligible to live and work in Aus giving you a world of options down the track 3 birds 1 stone so to speak.. plus the partner visa for nz etc would be great evidence to prove legit marriage as part of CR1 process… what is proof of engagement these days? It’s a commitment and not everyone wears a ring or has a party etc… either way, CR1 I think is way better… k1 has at least 12 mth wait for work approval too before and AOS is taking on average 18 mths these days… so pretty much same speed
  3. My initial response was in regard to and referenced the original OP post… HRQX provided me with a thread update and as previously acknowledged by me once receipt issued, they have authorised stay… which I responded that’s good news.. been at this a while and more than aware their no longer classed as overstay or illegal thanks to the receipt
  4. He currently has no legal status in the US… makes him an over stay and eligible for deportation… he’ll only become legally present once he has authorised stay… so yes, he’s currently illegal until AOS submitted and receipt issued
  5. They gave no reason, after interview it went to must be reviewed and I was told I’d hear something within 30 day… took 6 months ugh but thank goodness it’s over with… good luck with your case, don’t lose hope things do actually move even if at snail pace
  6. Get rid of the attorney and file it yourself… no one has greater interest in getting your documentation correct than you… congresswoman can’t do anything, since you don’t have an actual USCIS case number yet so he’s effectively an illegal overstay so don’t waste your time highlighting his location so to speak lol just resubmit without the attorney checking everything yourself, the instructions are super easy
  7. Finally… 6 months after my interview got an update….. NEW CARD BEING PRODUCED! 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌
  8. Had the interview in March 2021… still no decision on our case… so frustrating
  9. Had my interview in March, they couldn’t make a decision on our case (basically she hadn’t looked at it), but we still haven’t heard back from them…we were told to wait 90 days for result, so we did and submitted an enquiry, now we’re being told to wait another 90 days 😡 so frustrating
  10. She’ll need to collect her bags at point of entry so yes LAX. Not sure what you mean by is it where she’ll be interviewed, what visa is she travelling on?
  11. Your mom.... and when she becomes a citizen it will update making it even faster
  12. I’d tell them she’s migrating highlighting the Migrating part, just add the k1 visa with it along with it to support
  13. A. I said easier and gave no opinion of if it would be financially better or not.. B. I gave a timeframe and no comment of if it mattered or not... C. Your spouse doesn’t work and therefore gives you a financial incentive and far less complications when filing jointly.. D. A working spouse overseas complicates it, they pay taxes in home country (not all of which have treaties with the US) conversion rates to USD take effect, retirement funds that may or may not be recognised by the IRS, interest on savings and investments etc.. this may or may not save you money with the IRS hence my advising he get professional advise... just because you found it easy and saved money doesn’t mean he will have the same outcome, especially since we have no idea about how much each of them earn in determining tax brackets etc E... again I said easier, which it was in my case, secondly it was financially better for us to file separate also, since the tax system in my home country is far less complicated and provides for more deductibles. it’s purely based on individual circumstances
  14. I’m not a tax expert and he should get advise about world wide incomes etc since your income etc needs to be included, many countries also have treaties in place and share information to ensure you’re not double taxed or claim deductibles across both countries and it doesn’t remove your obligation for filing within your home country... it gets pretty complicated from what I saw when in the same situation.. hence mfs being easier the filing of itin with his return would increase processing times.. maybe by a couple of weeks or more it will depend on how busy they are..
