  1. me too. I'm assigned to Portland. Likely I won't get an interview scheduled in the next 6 months.
  2. thanks for the flyer, I will print this. When I applied for my wife's SSN in person luckily a more senior member was there to assist the officer. The one I talked to was nice, but had no idea how to handle a K1 (fiancee) visa situation. Bringing this will help to educate them how to do their job and stop arguing with us See my post just above. They messed up one of the children's card and the AP authorization is not stated on it...I suspect the SSN application will not happen by itself either Likely I had one of those druids review my file with 1 week of experience
  3. i'm 60+ days on ready to be scheduled for interview. The Portland office runs 11 months before scheduling interviews.
  4. a very interesting thing happened. wife and child #1 received AP/EAD combo card. child #2 also approved on both cases but received EAD card stating no re-entry allowed. I went back to look at the letters which came through the mail and I remembered for one person it was not the same. Child #2 had 2 separate letters one for EAD and one for AP approval, however those who received a combo card their approval letter for EAD stated combo approval, while child #2's EAD approval letter just addressed EAD. Will she receive a separate AP card now in the mail due to some USCIS processing error ? She has been approved for AP, but she has not received a combo card, which is very strange. Anyone has experienced this before and if yes, what was the outcome / solution ?
  5. look up this thread. most people get it 1-2 weeks after EAD arrived. If you don't get it by 3 weeks go to the local SS office and they can look it up if it's been processed. If not processed yet in the system, I would just apply on the spot. I am in the same shoes with you. EAD is coming on 1/11 Saturday and I will stick it out till Feb 1. If by then not received, I will apply in person in an SS office.
  6. getting a local driver's license has been a challenge for mine too. she has a valid Thai license, which at least she can use to drive. When first she took the DMV test she failed the max 8 questions around question 12. After that she admitted she didn't understand the English for most questions. I purchased her an oregon DMV online test, which had a predicted probability to pass the knowledge test and I told her she cannot go again to test until the probability is at 85%. When she reached it (~1.5 months practicing and learning mostly English words), she passed immediately. Now we are waiting for her work authorization card to arrive (approved just Jan 3rd) and with that we can go back, prove her legal presence and then she will be allowed to take the road test, which will be the final step to get her a local driver's license. ....with her married name on it, so finally we can live normal. It's been a journey for sure
  7. this is a good list. my car insurance card also shows all authorized drivers, including my wife, so that might be a good add to the above list
  8. 1/3/2020 - EAD card is being produced. interestingly the AP card's status didn't update, although it was my understanding that it is a combo card, not two separate cards
  9. yes, 3 packet is required (which you can then put into a big envelope / box and mail together. this is a few hours of work to put it together and proof read / organize it. If you follow the cover letter and the attachments required, that will help
  10. wow, very lucky! now you just upped my hopes for our wait time expectation We had 3 weeks ago the ready for interviewing notification, so at this point I stopped micro-managing the events and expect movement mid to late January on AP/EAD, but not much on the green card. I have two kids as K2s, so need the EAD for getting their social security number and eventually submitting my tax return.
  11. I'm happy if I was able to help a few of you with the cover letters. I found it very useful and while I was preparing, there was much less information on the forum when it came to K2 (child) applicants. I hope this reduced the overall prep time for some of you....I know I spent days reading and digging and then eventually printing around 500 pages for the 3 people
  12. all 3 forms have to be completed for the K2-s. if you have 3 children, you will have 4x the work to do. if the kids are too young the parents can sign on their behalf the forms.
