    We met in Melbourne, Australia whist Andy (USC) was deployed with the USN in September 2017. After much reluctance, Zoe (the Aussie) finally agreed to have dinner with - the day before Andy's ship was to leave the Port of Melbourne en route back to Japan! It was love at first sight and we communicated back and fourth until they we were together again in the States for the Marine Corps Ball in December where Andy proposed to Zoe in Las Vegas! It was a 'yes'. Zoe returned to the States in April 2018 where we officially wed in Santa Ana, California. We decided we would have a proper ceremony in Andy's home state, Washington in September 2018. In October 2018 we found out we were expecting (huge surprise). We did the whole back and fourth/long distance marriage until January 2019 when Andy left the USN and moved to Australia on a year long tourist visa. In June 2019 we welcomed the love of our lives, little miss Addison. We decided that we want to settle in the US so we decided to file the i-130 in October 2019. And here we are ... waiting! Andy returns back to the US in January 2020 to re-establish domicile and get a job and to prepare for our arrival!

  1. Yeh, I think there are a few Aussies immigrating. Would love to know when the consulates will open again.
  2. Fees need to be processed before anything else. Took us 3-4 days
  3. oh congrats! Keep us updated! Can I ask on what basis? If you don’t want to share publicly, could you DM? oh my our DQ took 4 days! 😱 oh wow! Well if you come back we might have our interview on the same day. ah New Zealand is basically another state of Australia 😝 Welcome! When did you DQ?
  4. Hello All I thought I would make a Thread for Australian's who have their CASE COMPLETE at NVC and are waiting for an Interview to be scheduled at the US Consulate in Sydney! It might make it easy for us to keep in touch and update each other! I hope this is OK 🐨 We were DQ'd this morning so we will be waiting a while lol
  5. Hey all, we’ve been DQ’d and now are waiting for an interview in Sydney. have they re-commenced interviews or is it a long, unknown wait until a date can be set? 😬🤗
  6. Hello, We are filling out the I-864 and for Part 3 we are confused. Our daughter is a USC and is in Australia. Do we include her in this section? If so, does my husband pick Option 1 (sponsoring principal applicant) and option 2 (the following family members immigrating at the same time) Thank you Edit: Do we add just our daughter in Part 3 for Family Member 1 or do we add me again?
  7. ok awesome 👏 thank you 🙏 here’s hoping they accept my afp certificate too
  8. Hello, My husband is loading the following to the NBC for the AOS: 1. x 3 tax transcripts, 2018, 2017, 2016 2. a employment verification letter 3. a letter from the employer 4. x 2 pay stubs 5. i-864 He spent 6 years in the Navy. 2019 did not work and now works for the fed government. is this ok?
  9. wow that’s amazing, thank you. so he can use 2018 income tax transcript, even though that wage is below the FPGs for our family of 3 and then put in his new, higher income for current. that’s so good - thank you.
  10. Any Australians been advised of an interview date at the Consulate in Sydney? If so, how long have you waited from DQ? Hoping they open soon so there isn't a huge backlog 🤞🇦🇺

  11. Hi all, again So, we're at the NVC stage. My husband moved back to the US to re-establish domicile and get a job so he can sponsor us (me and our USC daughter). 1. He did no work for the whole of 2019, has not filed taxes (yet), does NVC need 2019 tax transcript? Or can we upload 2016, 2017, 2018? 2. He has just started working - he works for a Federal Government Department and has only had 2 pay checks. How many pay stubs should we upload? Should we upload his employment contract, bank statements etc as-well? 3. He earns well over the 125% FPG - should we still consider a joint sponsor? I only question this because in 2019 he earned 0 due to being in Australia and not working. I've searched here and I can't find my answer, if someone knows the answers or can re-direct me that would be FAB! Thank you all 😃
  12. We received the NVC the next day. We've paid all fees and now waiting for the payments to process! Good Luck all
  13. Thank you both. 🙏 i seriously hope I have an interview this year. Unsure when Sydney opens and how backlogged they are 🤷‍♀️
