  1. Thanks for the help?? kinda silly to talk about the Cr1.. I expected to get hit with "why didn't you apply for renewal 5 months ago?" Its a bit late to talk about the benefits of a CR1 vs K1. about 4 years late!!.. There really wasn't a choice for us as we didn't decide to get married until I returned in Jan 2020 as covid hit. So K1 made sense for us.. Yes I wished I had married her on my July 1019 trip. Luckily we are not in a rush, at least I hope. We hope to get her driving license before this combo expires.
  2. wife just informed me that her combo card expires near the end of March. We went the K1 visa route and Applied for Adjustment of status in July 21' We haven't heard anything for a long time on the AOS.. We have heard other AOS in Utah are over 2.5 years now. We have a barcode page from the original combo card that says to tear off this portion and send in to speed up your extension or replacement card. I have searched for combo card extensions and did not see any recent threads. I've read they dont issue combo cards anymore. I've read there is an automatic 180 extension and not the 540 days. we are not planning any travel out of country this year but you never know. She is employed in our 2 person sole proprietor company. Can anyone direct me to the correct forms to send in? I've seen some cover letters and list of forms to send in but that was real old info Thanks Randy and Mayuree Married for 2.8 years and doing ok.
  3. From the OP it sounds like there wont be a dependent going forward starting in 2021. if the income is not enough for 3 then maybe 2 is the way to go as it is actual going forward.
  4. Perhaps you could hand write it in and scan that page. These electronic forms are not set up for 2 names or long names.
  5. pretty much the same RFE letter I got. I did make a few mistakes, like listing my wife's maiden name and then married name. They wanted copy of tax for 2020, it made some sense in that I don't have an employer and use some investment income each year. But I had signed it and it had the SS number on it and the number in family was correct. So these lazy workers just cut and paste on these RFE. Probably worse at writing English than me. . But I did send an official transcript from 2020. Also I found out my wife's birth certificate is a 2 year old reissued one so it made sense that they wanted a letter from the government explaining this. And also we requested and added the translation companies letter saying they are certified to translate. One company translated all of our documents as the RFE says each translation company you used needs this type of letter. Did you have any translated documents. Also I can imagine this is a good way to clear the govt workers que on Fridays. Just send an FRE and case is off your docket.
  6. If you recall we had an address issue where our profile and application had the correct address we were not getting mailed notices because they added a 6th digit to our house number. Luckily the USPS somehow got the biometric notice to us. So we never got the instructions to follow for the I-131. I even requested a new document to be mailed adn also send in a e notice of this issue and also changed the address in our profile from the correct old to the same new address. "Case Was Received And A Receipt Notice Was Sent On xxxxx, 2021, we received your Form I-131, Application for Travel Document, Receipt Number IOE0xxxxxxx, and sent you a receipt notice or acceptance notice. The notice describes how we will process your case. Please follow the instructions in the notice. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address. Current as of today at 11:27 a.m."
  7. checked into USCIS today and both the iI-485 & I-765 says "!Error retrieving case status" The I-485 says working on case after getting our RFE info. Anyone see this before? Does this happen if they are near approval? Any ideas? Do I just wait and see? Is this just a temporary data base problem?
  8. I tried to scan a certain 20 mb document using 100 dpi rather than 300 but then I cant read it. 200 dpi is readable but still 8.4 mb. is compessing them allowed?
  9. Ok I am ready to submit 14 documents but now some are to big. a few over the 6 mb by just a tad but one is 21mb. I guess I can go the adobe trial route... I don't really trust uploading these documents to a fee combiner website. Any suggestions free safe ?
  10. < Back to my cases Respond With Evidence Review the guidelines before you respond. You only have one opportunity to respond to our notice. Once we receive your response, we will resume processing your case. If you fail to submit all the requested evidence, we may deny your application. You cannot delete any evidence once you submit it. You can respond with no more than five documents. If you have more than five documents, please upload the first five on this page, then go to the Documents tab on your case and upload additional documents under Unsolicited Evidence. File Requirements Clear and readable Accepted file formats: JPG, JPEG, PDF, TIF or TIFF No encrypted or password-protected files If your documents are in a foreign language, upload a full English translation and the translator's certification with each original document. Upload no more than five documents at a time Accepted file name characters: English letters, numbers, spaces, periods, hyphens, underscores, and parentheses Maximum size: 6MB per file I guess this means we must submit it all at once. Can only upload 5 documents. I guess I will have to learn how to merge PDF files. I am thinking I can upload up to 5 documents in separate log in sessions but only once hit the submit button?
  11. Does your reply say we can submit things piecemeal as long as we meet the 90 days? I should have said I plan and hope to get all the RFE Info including about her birth certificate (complicated issue in a different country and language) by the deadline 7 weeks away. But does everything need to be uploaded the same day? there may be about 5-8 different PDF files I was going to submit electronically. Are you saying you get one chance at the RFE and they wont send out an additional RFE if we didn't give them exactly what they want.?
  12. My RFE was asking for new I 864, copy of taxes (not just transcript) and some stuff about her birth certificate. Do I include some cover letter/explanation page? Can I submit the I-864, taxes and submit something about the birth certificate later? Do I explain this in the cover letter. Also do the I-131 and I-765 stop processing while they wait for the FRE on the I-485? We never did receive notices in the mail since there was a address mistake on their part. they somehow added a 6th digit to our house number after we got our NOA of receipt. The address on the forms was correct and on the online account was correct. we tried the help email but got a generic change address link. at the time a popup came up saying we could not change the profile address for this active case. It was correct anyway... we did go to the change address form and changed it even thought the before and after addresses were the same?? we requested new forms be sent . The I765 says it is in processing nothing outstanding he I-131 says its in processing and..." and sent you a receipt notice or acceptance notice. The notice describes how we will process your case. Please follow the instructions in the notice. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address." We didn't get this notice. what would it typically say?
