  1. Sorry for not being clear about that, I meant a process as in it takes a few weeks to receive new SS card, and then later update through the DMV and elsewhere. I appreciate your response!! Thanks.
  2. Hello, I am the petitioner and will marry with my foreign fiance in a few days. I plan to take his last name but I know that it's a process to do so. My question is, we are going to send our Adjustment of status paperwork shortly after we marry and are already preparing the forms. I'm not sure if I should use my new last name, or if there will be any issues with that? The main form I can see this could impact is the I 864 Affidavit of Support, all of my supporting documents will be in my maiden name and again I know the name change is a process that takes time. Thanks!
  3. There could be several motivators for why your wife's family wants to move to the U.S., and maybe the biggest being that their daughter/sister is no longer with them and they feel they're missing a piece of their family. I wouldn't want to be in your shoes, trust me I completely understand where you're coming from as I myself like my privacy but family is a big part of my life so I can also understand the other side. In the end, I think that the immigration process is in your favor because it can be a very long and difficult process to get immediate relatives over here.
  4. You should try to reach out to the embassy ASAP. I am in a group on facebook and this happened to a few others, some were scheduled interviews and did not know it - others reached out and were scheduled an interview after contacting the embassy. From what I see, they've scheduled appointments for those with NOA2s all the way to December 2020 who have been "ready" since end of June. Here's contact information below: From Mexico: 5541638422 From USA: 011525541638422 Option 2 Spanish Option 3 Immigrant Visa Option 6 Visa k Option 1 Operator
  5. Hello, I will try to answer these the best I can. You really don't need the invoice for K1, just the case number that should now start with MEX. Sometimes there's site issues with logging in CEAC that resolve in a few days. That could also mean they're updating your case. If this doesn't resolve call NVC. You will likely not receive a welcome letter until your case is 'In Transit' to the embassy. The letter you do receive be sure to print (K1-FTP). You can complete the DS 160 really at any time, but if you make changes like move you will need to start a new one. Print the confirmation. You will be able to 'link' your completed DS 160 to your profile created to register and pay for your interview at a later time. Once your case moves from 'In Transit' to 'Ready' you should be on the lookout for mail/email/call for the scheduled appointment notice. This typically goes to the petitioners email but it can go to either. Print this email as well. You cannot make a payment for the CAS until you've been scheduled an interview. They give you links to create a profile to schedule the biometrics, make a payment, and link your DS 160. If you're still At NVC I highly recommend that you start working on all of your documents needed for the interview. This can take time and changes with CDMX embassy can happen suddenly. Make sure the beneficiary has a valid passport that does not expire within 6 months.
  6. Thank you! I receive a normal W2 and will use the address listed there. Would it be necessary to specify in the additional comments that I am remote, or leave as is? I appreciate your reply.
  7. Hello, I'm the petitioner/sponsor and I have a question on the I-134 Affidavit of Support. On question # 2 it asks for my Current Employer Address. I am employed, however I work remotely and do not report to any office. The company I work for has 3 physical offices in a different state. Is it best to select on of the physical locations and add a note at the end of the form that I work from home? Thank you!
  8. Does this still hold true for the most current form today? Thank you 😃
  9. Your NOA2 is the notice received when your petition itself was approved. The petition is sent to the NVC where you will be assigned a Case # (this process can take a few weeks) and it will remain there until forwarded to the consulate or embassy where the beneficiary will have their appointment. The petition will stay at NVC until the embassy is ready to schedule. This process takes time, you can check the status of your petition online once you receive your NVC case number.
  10. For those of us waiting At NVC for a K1 interview at Cuidad Juarez, new update that ALL K visas will now be scheduled for interview at the Mexico City embassy. My case has been At NVC since November 2020. Today I called the NVC and was provided my new case number which starts with MEX. https://mx.usembassy.gov/embassy-consulates/ciudad-juarez/visas-2/visaprocessing2021/?fbclid=IwAR1s7wNfW1LWsO-JaP3sywb1bSlqxv3r4nAmOCJQLdirOc3GGcUAqcLXZGI
  11. I received my NOA2 about 9 months after my NOA1 - that was in the thick of the pandemic and talk about USCIS furloughs etc. It also depends on which center your case is being processed. My approval also came a month or so after the "estimated" dates and I had no RFE's. I was checking mine on the daily and the best advise is don't - this process takes a lot of time and checking it daily will only speed up anxiety but not the process.
  12. Hello, I've read that metal earrings, watches etc are not allowed into the embassy during the interview. My question is, would two prong metal fasteners to secure paperwork be allowed? Thanks!
  13. Is that so? It would save me a lot of stress for the living situation.
  14. I am in the process of a K-1 visa, and we wish we went the CR-1 route for several reasons. Among all the already listed reasons, I currently rent and I'm finding that most rental agencies can not process applications without a SSN. Also, my fiance will be unable to travel back to visit his family for a long time. We will find a way to manage, but I believe it's definitely more inconvenient than a CR-1.
