  1. thank you for this! i visited a ssa last week and they said my application would be denied because my entry visa has expired. i asked thenm to photocopy the visa and the entry stamp with ir1 denoted, so i hope that works. i paid the $220 fee back in december. i can't get through to anyone about the status of my greencard.
  2. Hello, My I-130 and DS-260 applications were approved by US embassy in London in June 2021. On the DS-260 I selected that my information could be used to obtain a social security number. I entered the US in December 2021, but have not yet received my social security number or a green card. I cannot get ahold of any of the agencies to understand why I haven't received any of these documents yet. Can anyone help with what I should do for these, especially the social security number? Thanks!
  3. Yeah, I did go through the I-864 instructions and provided all the documentation I could. I just found it odd that they literally only looked at my 2020 tax return and the form itself and none of the corresponding evidence. I just meant that when I submitted my i-130, I didn't provide any financial evidence either. Hi there, good luck with your interview! The officer didn't review anything except the i-864 form itself and the 2020 tax return. I guess they just took what was on the affidavit at face value.
  4. In case anyone is looking for this, but I just randomly logged onto the appointment system for CBRA's and passports at 10:20am on a Thursday and five slots were available. Finally booked mine!! They were all gone within a minute.
  5. Hi there, yes, submitted through London DCF, but I never did anything online with the I-864. I submitted the I-130 right before the field office closed in March 2020, submitted the DS-260 this February, and then this was the first time submitting the I-864 or any evidence. I just looked back at the I-130 checklist London provided (https://uk.usembassy.gov/wp-content/uploads/sites/16/20200227-I-130-Checklist-for-Spouse.pdf) and there weren't any financial documents required that I would've sent. Nice and easy!
  6. I just wanted to thank the community for your help with my husband's application. We went to the embassy today and it was approved, so good news! I just wanted to share our experience. I printed out an insane amount of paperwork for the interview, particularly to satisfy the financial requirements for the I-864. This is everything I prepared: i-864 + 1 copy, plus the following supporting evidence: 2020 tax return + 1 copy 2019 tax return + 1 copy 2018 tax return + 1 copy 12 months of bank statements from two banks in the US and UK with hard cash +1 copy 12 months of statements from three financial institutions in the US and UK with a mix of stocks, shares and Roth IRA + 1 copy an annual statement from a financial institution in the UK I have a cash ISA with + 1 copy Letter from my husband's employer stating her will continue to work for the company after relocating to the US +1 copy 12 months of pay stubs from my husband's company + 1 copy My husband's 2020/2021 P60 + 1 copy The only things they took were the actual I-864 form and the copy of my 2020 tax return! It was very much a rubber stamping exercise. Thanks again for everyone's help and I hope someone else finds this information useful.
  7. Hi folks, I just wanted to thank the community for your help with my husband's application. We went to the embassy today and it was approved, so good news! I just wanted to share a few things about our experience: We left a five working day gap between between the medical and the interview, which was totally fine. They're only letting applicants into the embassy right now due to COVID. I accompanied by husband and brought my daughter thinking we could come in (and I thought she would have to be present since she wasn't originally included on the DS-260), but they would only let whomever has an appointment in. They didn't care that we'd had a child since filing the I-130 and DS-260 and didn't update either of those forms. They told my husband "congratulations" and that was it. I printed out an insane amount of paperwork for the interview, particularly to satisfy the financial requirements for the I-864. This is everything I prepared: My husband's passports + 1 copy My passport + 1 copy Our daughter's passport + 1 copy 2 x photographs Appointment letter + 1 copy Courier letter + 1 copy Husband's birth certificate + 1 copy My birth certificate + 1 copy Daughter's birth certificate + 1 copy DS-260 + 1 copy Marriage certificate + 1 copy Police certificate + 1 copy i-864 + 1 copy, plus the following supporting evidence: 2020 tax return + 1 copy 2019 tax return + 1 copy 2018 tax return + 1 copy 12 months of bank statements from two banks in the US and UK with hard cash +1 copy 12 months of statements from three financial institutions in the US and UK with a mix of stocks, shares and Roth IRA + 1 copy an annual statement from a financial institution in the UK I have a cash ISA with + 1 copy Letter from my husband's employer stating her will continue to work for the company after relocating to the US +1 copy 12 months of pay stubs from my husband's company + 1 copy My husband's 2020/2021 P60 + 1 copy Evidence to reestablish domicile: My US driver's license + 1 copy My US voting record + 1 copy 12 months of statements from a US credit card + 1 copy The only things they took were: Appointment letter Courier letter Husband's passport Husband's birth certificate Police record Photographs I-864 - no evidence taken DS-260 Marriage certificate 2020 tax return I couldn't believe they didn't take any of the evidence for the I-864! He had an interview with the typical questions about why he was immigrating to the US, but was also asked some unusual ones like if he goes by his middle name and if he ever lived abroad for more than a year. He said the interview took all of two minutes and he was approved. Thanks again for everyone's help and I hope someone else finds this information useful.
  8. Hello, I am the USC petitioner for my British husband. I will not have a job in the US when we move, so need to prove I have enough in assets for our family of three. I have the amount in US dollars, but would like to also show assets over and above that amount that I have in British accounts just to be totally in the clear. I have three questions: In the US, can I just my Roth IRA as assets? Can I use assets in foreign bank accounts? For the evidence, will printing out 12 months worth of statements suffice, or do I need additional information from the financial institutions? Many thanks!
  9. actually one question. i have enough to cover the assets for 3 x 125% of HH poverty line, but it's in a mix of accounts that are in the US and the UK. would my assets in the UK count? Do I just need to evidence that with my most recent statements?
  10. Hello! I'm a US citizen, my husband is British and we live in the UK. I petitioned his I-130 through the DCF route in March 2020 before it closed. When we received a case number in September 2020, I was pregnant so therefore not in a position to move. In February 2021, we filed the DS-260. Now that some time has passed since our child was born, we're ready to complete the application and move to the US in the next six months. We have a straightforward application -- no divorces and have been married five years. His interview is next Tuesday and I'm completing the I-864 for it. I lost my job last month and do not have any employment lined up in the states right now. My husband will keep his job and transfer to the US office. I just want to check that I'm correct about the following: We can use his employment to cover the $27,450 (which is 125% of the HHS poverty guidelines) requirement. If we do, he will need a formal letter stating that he is continuing his job and will be transferred to the US. Is there anything specific this needs to say? He will also need to show pay stubs, but not quite sure how many months? Any other financial proof or documents we need to bring? Thank you!
  11. Great, thank you. So I'm doing a bit more reading about this and am slightly confused. My husband is actually going to keep his job and transfer to the US (I need to correct my original post, I meant to write only I won't have my job is the US). If we claim his income on the I-864 and get proof that his job will continue when he moves, do we need to show that his salary covers $27,450 or $82,350?
  12. Amazing, thanks for this. I've never heard of a tax schedule -- what am I supposed to bring? Is this something I can request from my CPA? Great about the assets, thank you!
