  1. Unfortunately it looks like since March they no longer issue them as combo cards. I know a few who received EADs and not AP.
  2. Understood, thanks for clearing that up! Be sure that when you call them that you’re calling the Military line. you have a good case for expedition, just keep on them about it. I was in WA and got mine very quick. how long are you going to be OCONUS? It’s likely you’ll have the AP for your wife by then which will allow her to travel outside the US depending on when you guys leave. hopefully it all sorts itself out for you! Stay on top of them. If there’s a delay, you can reach out to your local congressman. A friend of mine had major issues with their visa (their own fault) but were supported by local congressmen and were able to get taken care of
  3. I think you need to be a bit patient OP. What is the purpose of your expedite? I am a mil spouse and went through the AOS process in the height of covid. They took almost two months to send my initial receipt after receiving my packet, and then I was called for biometrics for AP and EAD about 3 months later. You can check out my timeline. you can try and request an expedited case but unless there’s a valid reason, it doesn’t seem likely. what is your local office? I was in a relatively small area so my case moved quickly and I also believe it is because our packet was meticulously put forget her and I’m from a low fraud country.
  4. Same! OP: Once you get here everything will be worth while and thankfully because your other half is active duty, you’ll have a lot less to worry about (insurance etc. it definitely takes the stress off moving from Europe to the US).
  5. I got a 600$ round ticket to the US before and my husband had a one way and it was $1200, sometimes depending on season it is reasonable. OP it isn’t an issue. Just cancel your return ticket after you’ve flown! Hopefully you’ll be able to redeem it when you get your advanced parole!
  6. Mine took a month back in July/August of last year. I wouldn’t worry at all submit a request to the lockbox but it’s not out of the norm right now!
  7. Hey OP! I arrived last year in March with my noa2, came over on my ESTA from Ireland and decided to withdraw my k1 and got married. I received my Green Card I’m Feb this year, no issues at all if you can manage not going home and being unemployed for a good few months, go for it!
  8. Some more complex cases get sent to the Vermont processing centre and they have a longer wait time. if it has not been an issue for you in the past, then you will probably be fine. Attach all of the information you have relating to the case and sign your statement above also. It is always possible that they may take up issue with it, but it is possible that they won’t either. You won’t know until you submit your application. most importantly, be honest and be honest to your other half sometimes at interviews it is brought up if one of the couple have a “criminal past”. Good luck!
  9. I got mine the following day, it can vary from a few days to a few weeks
  10. Yes, I had no SSN when I arrived because of office closure and was able to be added to my husbands account. It took a LOT of time and going back and forth but some banks can work with a W8-BEN! (USAA) OP it also depends on your state. In WA for example I was able to get my license while I was waiting for my GC (I had an NOA1 but it wasn’t required)
  11. Just photocopy each page that shows your stamps, whether they’re all on one or many but also if possible provide other reservations like hotels and photos that coincide with those dates
  12. I’d be more focused on your fiancé(e) having copies of the evidence you guys already submitted. Officers who conduct the interview already have a full copy of your petition in front of them. They’re not going to ask you for page 6 of your i129f, so don’t worry. ” Required Documentation You, the foreign-citizen fiancé(e), (and eligible children applying for K-2 visas) will be required to bring the following forms and documents to the visa interview: Completed Form DS-160, Online Nonimmigrant Visa Application. You (and any eligible children applying for K-2 visas) must: (1) complete Form DS-160 and (2) print the DS-160 confirmation page to bring to your interview. A passport valid for travel to the United States and with a validity date at least six months beyond your intended period of stay in the U.S. (unless country-specific agreements provide exemptions). Birth certificate. Divorce or death certificate(s) of any previous spouse(s) for both you and the U.S. citizen sponsor Police certificates from your present country of residence and all countries where you have lived for six months or more since age 16 (Police certificates are also required for accompanying children age 16 or older) Medical examination (vaccinations are optional, see below) Evidence of financial support (Form I-134, Affidavit of Support, may be requested) Two (2) 2x2 photographs. See the required photo format explained in Photograph Requirements Evidence of relationship with your U.S. citizen fiancé(e) Payment of fees, as explained below” Do exactly what it says in the interview notice that you receive as it can alter between embassies . don’t panic.
  13. Sure! I brought my -interview notice -passports for both of us -birth certificate (originals for us both) -marriage license (again, original) -photos (he kept them all and went through them at the start happily) -I brought my pay stub from my new job which he kept -our updated proof of relationship with joint bank accounts and adoption papers -medical
  14. It was incredibly straight forward! He went through the application with us, was thankful for our photos and just asked some basic questions! Where did you meet? Did you start dating immediately? Did you go on a honeymoon? Did you do any travels together? Have you met her family? What qualities do you like about your spouse? Who does most of the cooking? Where did you get married? Who was at the wedding?
  15. Hi everyone! Just an update; I had my interview today and just got the notification that my new card is being produced
