    So visa appointment was on the 26th of march 2019 in Seoul. i went there 1hr 30 mins early as my appointment was at 8 a.m. i was the first person and i stood there for a while before others start coming.

    7:30 a.m the embassy was open an those whos appointment was 7;45 were asked to stand infront of the immigrant lin there are two lines, non immigrant and immigrant visas). my turn for security check. so like others, i turn off my phone and gave to the security lady. she gave me a card for later pick up of my phone (note, only one cell phone is allowed, no other devices are allowed).

    i got in after pased security and was directed to the 2nd floor. i waited there untill my tunrn. the young korean lady placed a sticker on my passport and advise me to removed my document from the file before going to the 3rd floor. she then gave me a small transperent bag to put my 2 pictures. she checked on my passport to see if its valide ( but for koreans, she checked all their documents, medical reports etc).

    i moved to the 3rd floor. that was where the long wait was. i spend like 1 hour sitted before i was called for pre screening. the beautiful korean lady i believe she is of her late 30s or early 40s. Went through my documents. she asked me how long i have been in korea. she went through and discardet the paper that were not necessary she return them to me and said my orignal birth certifcate will be return to me after interview. she then gave me a sticker to go and pay my application fee at the 2nd floor counter. i had enough money with me so i had to pay 325 dollars ( 390 000 korean won) i gave the old lady 400k she returned 10 k.

    i went back to the third floor and i rang the ittle bell the lady who pre screen me ask e to ring when i return from paying. so she came and collected the receipt of payement she asked me to sit the consulate will call me for an interview.

    i waited for like 1 hr 25 minutes, then an American Consulate called me. ( at this time i was happy because the was this korean lady i heard about that she complicate alot so i never wanted to go to her) so i walked to the consulate.

    the consulate ask me un related questions. well, some will say it was relevant

    but never read from somewhere. he asked me to tell him about .... called my wife's name. i simple told him she is my wife. she asked me to give details he siad he like details he then ask me how we met? where is my wife coming from? which state? what is the state like? do i have any family member in the state? any siblings? how many siblings? where is my mom and my that? well aske me so many questions why my wife change her school where she previousl worked? what was the exact name of her the injury she got? what caused it and he said he has never heard of teachers having injury because o work. he ask me about my status in the country i am if i got a visa?

    then he said under the immigration law petitioner has to prove their domicile to the U.S so the documents i provided where not strong enough, by then i was very frustrated after all that questions and i got very angry. i told him my wife submitted her current contract wich shows she is here temporary but the co said its not enough. i showed hin bank statements in u,s well all was not good enough. he said he need to see prove that my wife and i will leave korea and establish in the u.s.a. so he then listed some examples like, Assets, house lease, employment in u.s or any document to show that my wife is making efforts to re-establish in U.s.

    After all that he gave me a blue paper form 221 g. on it., he put a star on prove of domicile. and said i should try together with my wife and look for any documents. he said it must be somewhere we just have look again. and told me ones i have gotten the document.., i dont need to visist the embassy i should just mail it to them together with my passport.

    i walk away picked up my phone and told my wife. my wife sent me emails of her job interviwes in u.s, job offer, and some other documents which if i heard earlier would ave gotten my approval.

    so my case is on AP though i just mailed all the documents including flight itenary, documents from her dean requestinfg her to be in the U.s by this spring for her last class, also a letter showing she needs ro do practicals which was a requirement before she finished school or graduated. i send employment offer and document from her dean acknowledging her return to korea this spring to finish school and do her clinicals.

    i will updates when something show up.

  1. Use the the date on your actual green card. That's where you have expiration date. Extension letter does not have expiration date field.
  2. I will try that. Also , I came in with my wife and she is a Citizen.., she was never checked... no finger print taken. She even asked and they said no. Yeah in Chicago... customer has just one line for all visitors, Citizens,LPR all used a single line.
  3. I just came in back to the country (USA) with extension and green card (expired). The process at the air port was nerve recking.though I submitted the required documents I was asked to go to that little waiting room for my green card to be processed.May be it was normal because of my extension letter. But that was not a good feeling after being in USA for a while and it's your primary and permanent home just to be treated like that at the boarder. Yes it could be the process but mane, it is not a good feeling being asked to wait there after finger print taken. I just decided not to leave US again without having become a citizen.
  4. We did filed on 02/08/2021. Biometrics On 08/23/2021 till date it is to ready to be schedule. it has been 1 year 2 months and 15 days. Though i have read from post were op said they have been waiting for two years... i still feel like individually we need to decide on what to do. for me i recently filed for case out of normal time even though i applied for N400 already
  5. Sorry you are going through this. If you can post everything on a single post with the accurate dates from when you get you gc , divorce and all the filing dates I am confident someone here will help you. Peace...
  6. You have had alot of advises and I just want to add my own opinion. No matter what you do... remember that your case will still be revised when you file for Citizenship even if it's a 5 year rule n400 application all your subsequent filings will be reviewed.Timing is the bigger picture here and reporting your divorce to uscis is not an option it is a must. If you have intentions to divorce then do that before filing for removal of condition and then later you file with devorce waiver to remove condition. Because if you file for divorce immidiately after your condition is removed uscis will get you when filing n400 5 years later. So all the options are on the table figure out which better and correct then go for it.
  7. Good question. Reason immigrants will chosed to go through hell in marriage because the So called U.S citizen claiming he can threaten them of revoke. I know your worries... you correctly mentioned that you have done wrongs or mistakes and your thought is that if he take it to court for your gc to be revoked he has substantial evidence against you. My advise is.... don't die in a marriage that is not working because of fear of losing your green card. Looking st the comments above they spelled it out clear and I concur that he has no power deciding if your card will be revoked or not. Just keep your evidence for worst case scenario to file police report against him for domestic violence and even if it has to go to court use same evidence and prove that he is abusing you. It's even too late since you have your 10 years green card. He csnt do anything. Don't suffer in marriage because of gc I repeat. I know you are putting love In Defense but the threat is your worry. No to violence or abuse
  8. Yup they won't give you a 10 years green card if your case is not approved. Congrats
  9. Hello everyone. Have you traveled out of U.S as a green card holder? If yes.., which line did you stand on or follow at the airport? Immigrant line, Citizen's line or regular Visitor's line?
  10. But why will they removed you and slapped you with a 5 year ban for an ordinary visit. Let's start from there. A visit is a visit why is your case different right up to the point of a issuing you with a ban??
  11. Trumps Policy murdered immigration. And the current President all he knows is talk and do nothing. I don't see why application will even make one year not to talk of years as I have seen. You either review it reject or accept it. America is not heaven that you will make applicant go through all this just to get a stay. This is so frustrating. I have lamented ,wept, but all in vain cos none of the ones responsible can see or read my post. This the worst immigration system in the world.
