  1. I believe you have a year from the date you pay to complete at least one of the steps. Use the general IR-1/CR-1 forum search function to confirm.
  2. No you need it for the NVC stage, I'm just assuming they're not processing applications during the shutdown. See if there is a Commissionaires still open near you. They will know what background check you need. That is if you feel it's necessary right now to have it done. Waiting a couple more weeks at this point probably won't slow you down.
  3. Be mentally prepared for a shutdown for at least 2-3 months.
  4. Interview dates are being cancelled as of today. We won't know when they will begin to reschedule them. But, I'd prepare for a long wait for your interview. It was already taking 5 months without this, so tack on at least another couple of months most likely.
  5. Assuming no COVID-19 delays, I'm likely to have a late May interview scheduled for my case. However, there's a strong possibility that I want to delay getting my visa for at least another 6 months which would allow me about a year from that original interview date to do my POE. So that's 6 month delay of original interview (postponed to late November) and then I'll have 6 months after the medical (which would be taken in November) to enter. I understand that my police certificate would need to be updated since it would be more than a year old. Does anyone know how long interviews can be delayed for without having to start the whole process over? Is a specific reason needed to do so? Do you need to inform the Consulate of your plan to miss your interview and reschedule at a later time? Any insight would be appreciated. PS - I would post this on the Canada forum but it's not as active and I assume this is a general question that others might be interested in knowing in the future.
  6. This is way better information and can be used as a major ongoing thread compared to something like the EI benefits one that is hardly updated so hopefully it can be done.
  7. Can this be stickied? This is the most complete and up to date information possible on the entire post USCIS process and should be referred to for now if someone makes a new thread, for example, about police certificate requirements.
  8. Here you go - https://www.canadavisa.com/canada-immigration-discussion-board/
  9. Sorry you're on the wrong forum. This is for obtaining an American green card. You'll want to find a forum dedicated to the process for immigrating to Canada.
  10. You've heard wrong. Anyone, whether already in the US or not, can have a joint sponsor. Everything you need in regards to completing the NVC stage can be found here - https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/the-immigrant-visa-process/step-1-submit-a-petition.html Use this to complete the steps and use the general IR-1/CR-1 for specific questions. You don't need to complete all the forms at the same time but your case will not be put in queue until you have submitted all your forms. So you can go ahead and pay the IV and complete the DS-260 and then afterwards complete the AOS once you have your joint sponsor in place. This thread is specifically for domicile, so we'll keep this thread specifically for that. If you have AOS questions I'd recommend asking on the other forum as you'll get more replies than here.
  11. Read the last three pages of this thread and it will be clear.
  12. You can just post your question here and I'll do my best to answer.
  13. We aren't consider a resident for tax purposes until we officially move to the US, right? I'm planning to do the POE but return to Canada for a couple of months. During that time I'd be moving the money over as well. I don't want to have to file the FBAR for 2020.
  14. You can email their office with your question and they will respond.
  15. Can the US citizen (who is dual) claim EI if they're moving back to the US with Canadian spouse who is getting PR?
