  1. Honestly, I am not sure if I paid that fee. Was that included in the IV fee? I guess not. I'm looking at the instructions, and we have no DOS ID number. The USCIS website said the consular officer should have given us a USCIS Immigrant Fee handout. We received no such thing. What can we do to find it?
  2. Hi, My spouse happily got her IR1 visa and has entered the USA! Is there a way to track the delivery of her green card and SSN? Most guides mention looking at USCIS, but that seems to be only for people who were adjusting status in the USA. How do I track the delivery of these items if my spouse entered on an IR1 visa? Thanks!
  3. Okay! From, that I understand that she doesn't have to submit police certificates since those 3 countries are not of our current residence and she didn't live there for 12 months. That solves dilemma 1. Dilemma 2, I am not sure about.
  4. Thanks, where is this from? Additional question: If we got a police certificate 1 week before we left a country permanently, can we use it?
  5. Hi all, I have two dilemmas: First dilemma: I recently posted a question about the necessity to get police certificates in every country that my wife lived in. We decided it wasn't necessary because she didn't live in any of the countries for more than 12 months or more. Have ever lived in another country for 12 months or more Were 16 years or older at the time you lived there The country where you used to live. HOWEVER. Now that I am looking at the civil document upload screen, it has sections for each of these three countries. Now I am nervous. Maybe they are required because when you add up these three different countries it was more than 12 months outside of her country of nationality combined. She lived in these countries consecutively before returning to her home country. Or maybe it just shows these upload sections automatically because I listed these countries in her residence history. I can click on "Not applicable" and then write a comment on why I chose NA. What do you think, am I interpreting this correctly in saying these are not necessary? 😟 Second dilemma: There is a discrepancy between what NVC says about police certificates and what the embassy pre-interview checklist says. You can see what NVC says above. However, the Ankara embassy says: "The original police certificate from your country of current residence and countries of previous residence." This is really confusing. Because now it seems like I do have to get all these different police certificates. Can embassies have more specific/special requirements than NVC? Or maybe its just inaccurate/outdated or not precise enough? Anyone can help?
  6. Another question: The NVC says you only need to submit police certificates if you lived in a country for more than 12 months. However, the embassy website says " If you are older than 16 years of age: The original police certificate from your country of current residence and countries of previous residence." So which one is it? It sounds like the embassy is requesting the certificates no matter what. This is really confusing!
  7. Given that one country we lived in only for 2 months is showing up, I suspect that its just showing up automatically because it should be required. Then again, it could be counting it consecutively (you were out of the country for over 12 months all together).

  9. Do you mean that it is okay for us to translate it on our own?
  10. Hi, I'm filing my documents for NVC. For the USCIS, my wife translated her own marriage certificate and USCIS accepted this. However, I heard that is this may not be possible for NVC - meaning we would have to pay for a translation. However, only 3 of the pages really needed to be translated....the rest of the marriage booklet can be understood by a "legend" that translates each section of each page into English. This works in the way that the reader would look at the number of the section they want to read, then look at at that number's section in the legend and read its equivalent text in English. Its unnecessary and really expensive to get these pages translated - which are blank of any inputted information anyways (its for birth of children and death of family members events, which we have had none so far - but there is like 20 pages for this). For USCIS, I just compiled this text into the document and my wife verified the translation. However, since I will probably use a translator, what is the best way to do this? Should the translate only translate the pages that really need translation, and then I attached the rest of the English compilation after the translation? Or should I ask the translator to insert the compilation into their certified translation? What works?
  11. I got my approval letter! It happened on the 8th. Funnily enough, the online site has not updated yet and still shows it as received. It took 248 days! I'm so happy!!!
  12. Ugh, god. So I shouldn't get my hopes up with the historical processing times. It could be today, tomorrow, even a month from now. 🤔
  13. I'm in TSC. The graph says that applications with the date of November 8th are being processed, but I look at the file queue and there are tons of unprocessed I130s still in October. What is going on??
  14. My filing date is October 31st 2018. Should I be getting worried? Should I call them?
  15. Just copy and paste your case number into the start receipt number. If you want to see the cases before your number, just subtract x number from your case number and it'll show you the cases after that case number. Like if my case number is SRC1000 and I want to see the 50 cases before mine then do SRC950 and put '50' for the number of cases to show. Be sure to choose only show I-130.
