    204(c) is marriage fraud. USCIS might RFE you for bona fides of this marriage (and any prior ones if you had prior I-130s). You will give them everything you can and you'll be fine.
     
    I had that happen with my I-360, but that's because I was in removal proceedings, so immediately they presume that any marriage I enter into is fraudulent. I gave them everything I could and they finally approved my I-360.

    No just ignore the I-130 and focus on the VAWA. As I said, they might ask questions regarding the VAWA, but with evidence and a good cover letter you can overcome the RFE. In my cover letter I had to basically take apart and debunk all of their points by pointing them to current and previous evidence.
     
    You also can't appeal the I-130, only the petitioner (i.e. your ex) could but you're divorced now anyways so he can't even if he wanted to.

    Demise got a reaction from someonetookmyname in Form I-485 - Part 1 Q24, Part 2 Q12   
    P1 Q24 - Visa Waiver Tourist (WT) or Visa Waiver Business (WB). Consult your I-94 if you're not sure. It's not super important how you word it. If you overstayed it then say for example "Visa Waiver Tourist (WT) Overstay". No, your immigration status does not change upon marriage.
    P2 Q12 - Since you will most likely concurrently file I-130 with your I-485 you'd leave this field blank or type in "N/A".

    Demise got a reaction from JFH in They gave me CR1 at POE...   
    Well the original immigrant visa + entry stamp serves as evidence of permanent residency for 1 year (and can be used for anything an actual green card can be used for - work, getting a social security card, international travel, getting a driver's license, etc), so you're not utterly screwed because you have to send the defective green card back with an I-90.
     
    If the I-90 takes over a year for some reason you can use the I-90 receipt to get an ADIT stamp (aka I-551 stamp) which similarly to the above can be used for anything a physical green card can be used for.

    Demise got a reaction from pablo2752 in Panicking a little - petitioner's birth certificate? (F2B)   
    1. Those things are generally not necessary for F2B cases. Birth certificates come into play for the beneficiary (in any case) and for the petitioner if it's needed to establish a family relationship to the beneficiary, e.g. you are petitioning for a parent or a sibling, or for US birth certificates to prove citizenship in absence of another proof like a US passport.
    2. Yeah. You have to attach a signed statement that attests that you are fluent in both English and the other language and that the translation is true and correct to the best of your ability. Personally I am a bit iffy on translating your own documents (even if the regulations say nothing about it being not okay) so I would ask someone other than yourself or your mother to do the translation, even if it's a relative like a sibling or father if I was in your shoes.
     
    Also, remember one thing - post interview RFEs (and whatever the state department's equivalent is) do happen. So if something's missing that the agent wants, you will have an opportunity to send it in.

    You can not petition for a 26 year old child... must be under 21 and unmarried, since you are just a GC holder.
     
    Regardless your child would have to go back to her country and not overstay her visitor visa else she would have lied to an immigration officer when she arrived here on her visa and then during future interview they would be denied based on lying.

    No, the prima facie letter can't be used for work.
     
    However, a receipt notice for I-765 extends the validity of your C09 EAD for 180 days, as long as you filed for renewal while the old EAD was still valid.

    Demise got a reaction from Khan Vez Ahmad in What's LockBox, I-129F petition, Not Get Any NOA1.   
    Lockbox is a term used by USCIS for their intake facilities. Basically they're the place that does a first review of the forms (e.g. are the forms signed, is the payment amount correct, is the minimum evidentiary standard met, did the payment go through after depositing it). Then they scan them and send them along to the service center that has jurisdiction, once the service center gets the forms, then the service center issues a receipt notice.
     
    If you sent it via something with tracking, you should first check if it was delivered, then you should check if the money order was cashed, or if they took money out of your account for check or card payment.

    Demise got a reaction from mycase17 in Switch from Green card to Citizenship for CR-1   
    Well, what you are trying to do here is move your spouse's I-130 from F2A category (F21 or C21) to IR category (IR1 or CR1). You basically do it by writing to whoever currently has the I-130 (generally either the field office or the national visa center), attach a copy of the approval or receipt notice and a copy of your naturalization certificate and send it to them.
     
    Note that if she has any children that would be eligible to immigrate with her, they fall off the petition upon your naturalization. F2A allows derivative children, IR does not, meaning that if there are stepchildren involved here you will need to file a new I-130 for each. A stepchild is defined as a child whose parent you married while the kid was under 18, if there's some in the 18-21 range who would be eligible to tag along on F2A but not eligible for their own IR petition, you might actually be better off holding off on naturalizing until all of them got their immigrant visas.

    No, you can't cancel or withdraw an affidavit of support after a visa was already issued or AOS was already granted. You remain on the hook until one of the following happens:
    1. He naturalizes
    2. He completes 40 quarters of work as defined by the Social Security Act
    3. He loses his permanent residency AND leaves the US
    4. He loses his permanent residency but manages to re-adjust under a different petition
    5. He dies
    6. You die

    Demise got a reaction from C56 in F2B Derivative Question (Split topic)   
    Yes, F2B does allow derivative children to tag along and CSPA does protect those derivative children from aging out. So the time the I-130 is pending is basically credited against the derivative's age. Other requirements like seeking to acquire permanent residency within 1 year of the priority date becoming current still do apply.

    Demise got a reaction from ghee in New Biden admin immigration directive on naturalization   
    Honestly they should just make you an LPR as of the date that you filed I-485 or DS-260 once it finally gets approved, which will basically count the time the application was pending towards the naturalization requirement.
     
    Of course it might lead to a pretty weird situation where you get your green card and are immediately eligible to file I-751 and/or N-400, but why should you - the applicant be de facto penalized for USCIS or DOS being slow?

    Demise got a reaction from little immigrant in Need help   
    Well you can (contrary to most opinions here), however overstays are not forgiven in cases of spouses of LPRs, meaning that you will either need to naturalize (which you can do after being an LPR for 5 years) which would let your new spouse adjust despite an overstay or pursue an I-601A waiver and have your current spouse do consular processing once that's approved. I would recommend at very least scheduling a consultation with a lawyer that does waivers. I do not recommend DIYing those things. 
     
    Also, contrary to some posts, the 5 year wait time to sponsor a new spouse after getting your green card via marriage is not applicable in cases where your prior marriage was terminated by death of the spouse that got you the green card.

    Pretty much a non issue with USCIS.  If you have proof that you entered the marriage in good faith you will be fine.   You do need to file a police report about the passport and green card.  The passport is property of the Nigerian government and  green card the US government.
     
    If you have filed to ROC and didn't do it as a divorce waiver you will need to update that.
