  1. I submitted all the documents with my wife’s maiden name, she’s considering getting a passport with her married name afterward. How is your interview process go when you present new passport? Do you know if it raise some red flags by interviewer?
  2. Filed I-130 for CR1 back in March, and now officially got my NOA2 after 47 days! that was much quicker than I thought. So my petition is on its way to NVC for next stage as of right now, and my wife just ask me if she can change her maiden name to married name . All the application and documents I filled out so far have only her maiden name in it, while waiting on the application goes to NVC, is it safe for her to change names? I did some search on this topic and many thread has indicating that won't be a big problem, just email NVC about name change with new passport bio page and statement, and update name when filling out DS-260. hmmm, if that's the case, I will just told her to get the name legally changed. Will it significant delay the NVC process? I was wanted to wait until she gets here and then change name later, but my wife told me it is very hard to change legal name in Japan if she doesn't do it within a certain period. -------- you may wondering I should have post this on NVC sub, but actually I have got a green light from US Embassy Tokyo to expedite the process once I have the case # , and NVC would forward my application directly to them right? On the other research I had, people said just finish all other paperwork using maiden name, and then just bring old and new passport to the final interview, and explain the name change, they would then issue visa on the new passport? is that true? What should I do?
  3. yes. I130, my petition was in Texas, and with IOE receipt number. There is no way to track the status with IOE by yourself at all, you HAVE to call to talk to USCIS rep to get the most up to date status. Even automatic USCIS phone bot will not have information about your case. AFA I was told, our cases fall into new efile system and a lot people have petition approved with 2-3 months without expedite. It only took me 42 days to get it to approve. good luck to you.
  4. Nothing yet. but they told me it will be few days. and another 30 days to get to NVC.
  5. Thanks! I actually do not have a pending deployment, was just stating the fact my unit is deployment-ready, and would send me out anytime soon, they then just approved it.
  6. hi guys. just update here! Since I am in the military, I called to request an expedite back in April, it took a while for me to get all the documents. After I finally gather all the additionally documents and I drafted a letter myself and signed by my supervisor, stating I may deploy anytime soon (which is the fact) and some other stuff, I send in the documents on 10th May, TSC received on 14th. Guess what? I called USCIS today just wanted to ask question regarding to change my spouse's last name, they told me it is kind too late I have to ask to change when the file get to national visa center. I was shocked, like wait what? why. and she told me, because the peition is approved!!! on 16th May. I am not sure if this because i have that IOE receipt number, or the letter from my supervisor actually worked, but it is approved! However, myUSCIS still have nothing. Can't wait to tell my wife about the update!!!
  7. well, guys. I finally gather all the documents and I drafted a letter myself and signed by my supervisor, stating I may deploy anytime soon (which is the fact) and some other stuff, I send in the documents on 10th May, TSC received on 14th. Guess what?

I was shocked, like what? why. and she told me, because the peition is approved!!! on 16th May. Can't wait to tell my wife about the update!!!
  8. what! never heard about that, i did read some of them said their application with IOE approved after 2,3 month only. finger crossed!! 2 months in Texas center now
  9. im RegAF, got all document ready and tranlated, went to personnel, got my spouse under me in a minutes. then went to finance, starting receiving BAH and BAS the next paycheck, no SSN required
  10. just an update to the expedite... I got the email back from them 2 week a go, requesting supporting documents. I have since been working on it, I am planning to send in my PCS order with my wife in it, and the letter from my commander explaning my deployment status and some kind words.( it worked on some application, based on this post However, the due day of the documents is within 14 days, and the letter won't be ready for another week. I am going to resubmit the expedite request once I have all the letters ready this time.
  11. sorry for get back to you late Gemm...I actually have no idea what's happening to yours. I simply just followed the guide on the letter, and add the case to my account succesfully. However, no status updates in the account page at all, except my information.
  12. wow! that was extremely fast! even though I didn't apply for i485, my friend who applied still waiting for interview notice.
  13. Same to me, I received my online access code like 3 days after NOA1, then added the case to my account, unable to see anything beside my NAME and ADDRESS on the webpage. Like I said, they just told me to wait 30-45 days to see the status updated cus its a new system..
  14. Thanks for the info!! yeah I just sent the i130, and I did not do DCF, I was ineligible cus I’ve returned to US . getting i130 expedites and approved is really the only thing I’m looking for right now. US Embassy Tokyo actually already emailed me, that they will reach out NVC for me to expedite the process once the petition is approved..
