  1. You're welcome! Do check the news or these forums from time to time until your interview. As a similar injunction against the I-944 form was recently lifted, the rule regarding DS-5540 may change too.
  2. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/News/visas-news/update-on-public-charge.html Applicants are not required to complete nor should they present the DS-5540, Public Charge Questionnaire.
  3. That's the injunction affecting the I-944 form. There's a different one against the DS-5540 and it is still in effect -- https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/News/visas-news/update-on-public-charge.html Applicants are not required to complete nor should they present the DS-5540, Public Charge Questionnaire.
  4. I-864A may also be signed by the spouse of the petitioning sponsor. Doesn't just apply to spouse of joint sponsor. I-864W is no more.
  5. It's not required according to the form instructions, but the consul officer may ask for it anyway. This is possibly one of those consulate-specific quirks. A recent VJ example I recall is of an applicant at Guangzhou. She got a 221g for the I-864A from her joint sponsor's spouse. I recommend the OP prepare an I-864A for the interview to avoid a 221g for it.
  6. Upload a letter that says something like, since you stayed there for less than 1 year, police certificate is not needed as per https://pl.usembassy.gov/visas/police-certificates/
  7. USCIS call center reps cannot give you legal advice. Even the Tier 2 agents won't be able to help you when you don't even have a petition filed yet. If you need help in assessing your options beyond the advice already offered in this thread, I suggest you seek out an immigration lawyer or check out VJ's professional partners ("Ask a Pro" at the top of the page). Good luck!
  8. The form specifically asks for your previous addresses. Answer completely and accurately. What if it shows up on background checks that you stayed long-term in Canada and the UK but you didn't declare it on your form? Don't risk your visa application for something like that. Did you stay for at least 1 year in those countries after turning 16 years old? If you stayed for less than a year in the UK, you don't need a police certificate from there. You still need to list the address on the form, though. https://pl.usembassy.gov/visas/police-certificates/ How to get a police certificate from outside Canada -- https://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/en/steps-getting-a-certified-criminal-record-check
  9. Using the correct terminology is critical when dealing with USCIS. If you have been telling them all this time that your mother will "adjust status", that could be part of the reason why USCIS is getting confused with your mother's case and not sending it to NVC. Adjusting status is only for people who are already in the US. Beneficiaries who are outside the US cannot adjust status. For your future communications with USCIS, please remember to tell them that your mother will not be adjusting status and that she is actually applying for a visa via consular processing in Cameroon.
  10. Yes, you are allowed to present an I-134 from a co-sponsor at the interview. I recommend it, given your current lack of a stable US-based income.
  11. At this point, all you can do is wait. There is no expedite for this stage of the process.
  12. I was going to point out that she can't even leave the PH, so it's good that you're already aware. If by some miracle the outbound travel restrictions ease up soon, please skip the proof of relationship and letter from your US employer. Instead, have her bring the I-129F NOA1 letter, in addition to her proof of ties to home. As always, answer truthfully when asked by CBP, but don't volunteer information that was not asked. So don't show the NOA1 unless CBP brings up the need for a fiance visa. The NOA1 can help to persuade them that you are following the legal process for immigration. Btw, pre-COVID, I was sent to secondary interview after I told CBP I'll be staying with my boyfriend (now husband) during my trip. They let me through after around 5 minutes of questions. They didn't look at any of my proof of ties, but they asked a lot about the work I do back home, not so much about my boyfriend.
  13. Another hypothetical scenario -- at the AOS interview, the interviewer may ask to see photos as part of bona fide marriage evidence. What if they notice the wedding ceremony photos and ask where and when they were taken? OP, you and your future spouse will have to shoulder many risks and secrets if you push through with a ceremony before your fiance's arrival in the US. Will it be worth the paranoia of getting found out that your fiance did not strictly adhere to the terms of the K1 visa? https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/family-immigration/nonimmigrant-visa-for-a-fiance-k-1.html#14 After You Receive a K-1 Fiancé(e) Visa [...] With your visa, you can apply for a single admission at a U.S. port-of-entry within the validity of the visa, [...]. You must marry your U.S. citizen fiancé(e) within 90 days of your entry into the United States.
