  1. Yep, and you should be able to upload the response on the site as well.
  2. Hello my original gang Sneding you all good vibes and hoping that you all are doing good, we recently got approved for the AOS so now our cycle will start again in 1 year and 9 months. Hoping you all are happy with your loved ones and USCIS case tracker is not your number one search anymore.
  3. My friend filed for immigration for his parents and they are just waiting at this point, they never rcvd the visa and there was no restriction in filing an IR5
  4. any us visa application (immigrant or non immigrant) will always have the question that were you ever denied the US visa, obviously you cannot lie, now how does this effect the immigration route there are much experienced guides here who will be able to share their expereince. But I would assume yes it does effect in some ways. But if you have a strong immigration case for K1 or IR, you have relationship proof and all then the burden of support will shift towards you and it might be a better option. Also, it will give you some time to think and understand the person rather than trying to right away move mountains.
  5. That is what everyone here is trying to point towards. The B2 visa is strictly for tourism or visit, any non sleeping consular will be able to look at this and say that this guy is not coming back. So as everyone said that YES he can apply for a B2 visa, there is a very low chance of him getting it approved, as far as you seeking help from a lawyer, B2 visa will be applied by him, it is a very straight forward system you do not need lawyers help to fill out the form as he will need to fill out the form. Unfortunately the way the system is if you are poor the logic is how you are supporting your travels, your stay etc. Which is a reasonable question. Again Yes he can apply for B2 Chances are he will not be approved Lawyer cannot do anything, he can charge you a fee and help fill him the form? but besides that anything he/she says will be irrelevant imho. Best of luck.
  6. We got a notice of approval for our 485 yesterday. Hopefully will rcv the physical card soon. 🙏 thanks to so many people. Phase 2 done.
  7. Yes that's understood This is the confusion that agent stamping it beyond the suspected expiry date. I say suspected because the issue date is mentioned on the document but the expiry date. Yes that's understood, but is the expiry date just calculated based on when the document is issued, because as stated the issue date is mentioned on the document. The expiry date is not, the only time I saw an expiry date on this document is after this stamp. Which Shows paroled until date.....
  8. I tried searching here so apologies if I missed and if someone has already answered. My wife received her advanced parole in September 2022, she traveled without any issues and was out of country for 30 days and came back in December 2022. When she arrived at her POE they stamped the AP and Passport both with stamp which states paroled Until December 2023. What exactly does this mean? Can she travel till December 2023 if she wants as I thought it expires one year after issue date. Appreciate your responses.
  9. I applied for k1 visa for my then fiance and now wife, her process took almost 1 year to complete from filing to arrival in the US, it was filed in the middle of covid epidemic in January 2021. I consider myself extremely lucky as around that time the process for k1 was shortened, it was a big risk for me and it worked out. People who filed in 2021 for K1 visa will show a shorter timeline. It is now getting back to pre covid levels of 15-18 months. Don't forget that after the fiance arrives to US it will be another 8-12 months before he/she receives the EAD/AP. GC is another story. Thankfully we were never under significant strain for EAD and her AP also got approved within the right time frame and she was able to travel and meet her family. After all of my positive stories about K1, I believe 110% that spousal visa is a far superior visa. All in all by the time you get the benefits of GC it will be almost the same timeframe.
  10. Radio silence since August, not too bothered though as there are thousands of people before us, and at the least she has her SS, her EAD and AP all done.
  11. Are you still in normal processing time? Your timeline is for some other case? If you are over your processing time then have you tried a remedial process? . People have been trying to make sense of how USCIS process applications since this country was founded. I won't read much into what they do day to day. Hopefully you will get good news soon.
  12. There are 6 digits after IOE0915 , so you read somewhere that they are not working on potentially 999,999 cases? It's inaccurate information on that forum, it just doesn't make sense.
  13. For some they are and for some they are not (ours was not) Some people got their EAD approved the day after the Biometrics with AP together. Some are still waiting after a year. Your question regarding applying in November and planning to take a trip in August. Well , simply put NO don't spend any money on a chance. Just wait and hopefully you will be the lucky one or book a fully refundable trip.
  14. Our AP was approved today, there is a notice of approval on the USCIS website. Quick Question: How is the AP card send? is it a card like EAD or just a notice of approval (piece of paper) that you use at the airport?! thanks
