  1. We are in the review stage before we send it off. There are a few forms in our package that ask for my "current address" and it is not with him. So that is going to spark their attention, I would say. That's why I'm thinking of writing the cover letter.
  2. Hi everyone, I'm from the Netherlands but have been in the States on J1 status for the last 1.5 years. I will be out of status this upcoming Thursday. We all know about all the current travel restrictions and the Coronavirus. This made my US fiance and I decide to get married and file AOS, instead of I travelling back to Europe in hopes of returning on a currently pending K1 and having to be seperate from him for an unknown amount of time. We got married over the weekend. However, we are not yet living together. We want to wait until we can have a proper, not rushed, religious ceremony that my parents will hopefully be able to attend, so the travel ban needs to lift for that to happen. We are willing to wait with a ceremony until October at the very latest. If the world is still shut down at that time, then we'll just have to have ceremony without them and move in together, but for now I think we feel it's better to wait to see what happens. I am absolutely not trying to marry just to get a green card. We have made this decision in an attempt to navigate the current, unprecedented circumstances. In the meantime, I am already on his lease, we have a joint bank account and I have proof of joining him on his health insurance. We have an affidavit sworn by a third party that our marriage is legitimate. I also have proof that we filed for K1 previously, which to me adds to the legitimacy of our intentions. We will definitely be living together by the time we have our interview and would be able to show pictures of the actual ceremony. My idea was to write a cover letter that I attach to my petition, to explain the circumstances. We are just worried that not living together is going to make USCIS think we are committing visa fraud, and deny our application instantaneously without us having a chance to explain ourselves. What do you guys think? Is a cover letter could enough? Any tips? Thanks!
  3. Ah, the expiration date is relative to the interview! I didn't realize that. I thought it was related to the time of filing the AOS package. Thank you for that link. You've been most helpful! You Dutch as well?
  4. I am doing a medical exam with a civil surgeon here in Texas. It's on a walk in basis so I can just do it whenever. Plan to do it this week. I have a picture of the official provincial vaccination sheet with all the dates of all the shots on it. Not by the RIVM tho.
  5. Hi there, I have filed for k1 before but due to the coronavirus restrictions am opting for AOS instead now that I'm still legally in the States. At any rate, I am going for my medical exam this week and I'm supposed to bring my vaccination record. I have it, but it is in Dutch. What do I do about that? Do I need to get it translated before I go in? Thanks, Charlotte
  6. Hi y'all, I'm from the Netherlands and heard about the upcoming 30 day travel ban to the US from Europe. I'm really sorry for those of you that were planning to travel but can't anymore.. I am not planning to travel to the US from Europe soon but I was wondering if there is any information on whether processing times for the K1 will be delayed, or the consulates close for a time or any of that type of thing. (I am still waiting for the NOA2. The visajourney estimate is mid-April.) Thanks!
  7. Ok, thanks! When I was in Canada last I was there for 362 days before I left for the US, which makes that I technically don't have to get Canadian police checks since the requirement is police checks for countries where you have resided for at least a year since turning sixteen. Now, if I go there to wait the K1 out, does that add to the the 362 days (so does that make me have to get a Canadian police check), or are police checks only necessary for instances where you were in a foreign country for a year at a time?
  8. I was a legal, though not permanent, resident but I left the country when I went to the US and no longer have valid documents to be in Canada. I think what I'll do though is wait it out in Canada but interview in my home country. Thanks y'all!
  9. Correct, I am from the Netherlands. 🙂 Yes, I may decide to just fly to AMS for the visa interview process but wait in Canada in the meantime. Will update it one of these days - I just made my account today to ask this question. Thank you all!
  10. Not sure if this is possible but I was thinking as a tourist for six months at a time. I have plenty of friends I can stay with. Sorry you had to do that. I already dread it even tho I've only been gone for 2.5 years.
  11. Right now I'm legally in the US on a non-immigrant visa, but my boyfriend and I wanted to go see my parents before our wedding. It complicates things severely though and I'd prefer not to have to spend 8+ months in my home country where I haven't resided for the last 2.5 years. So I thought I could maybe go to Canada where I first moved.

  13. I'm not a legal resident in Canada but have lived there for a time before coming to the US, so definitely have more ties to that country than my home country. Can I file a Canadian address as my home address ?
  14. Hi there, I'm processing for K1; do I have to do my interview at the consulate in my home country or can I do it at an American consulate somewhere else? Thanks!
