  1. Hey everyone- I have gotten married recently and am waiting for the marriage certificate so I can go and get an SSN (because of name change..), but after looking through the I-485 form, there is an option for me to get the SSN using the form itself. Would you recommend me getting the SSN prior to filing the I-485 or should I do it before? I know i should file I-485 before I go out of status, but I'm also concerned if it'll take forever before I actually get the SSN through I-485. Thank you in advance!
  2. it probably helps that it didn't start as a visitor, haha. I'm just here at the moment to finish it up. Would take longer if I moved back to my country to take care of it now-- besides I can't even move back since they have my passport. But yeah, thank you, I think I will apply for extension.
  3. Hi all- I'm waiting for my K1 visa to be issued. Right now it is on "approved", working day 7 (They said to contact them if I haven't gotten it by working day 10). I'm not Canadian but I've been trying to stay here to finish the K1 procedure on visitors permit, which expires on February 3rd. My question is do you think I should extend my visitor permit? Or should I have faith in the Montreal consulate (lol) to send my visa out before then? Thank you
  4. Hey guys, my visa got approved on the sixth of January. it still says approved, not issued yet. "Your visa is in final processing. If you have not received it in more than 10 working days, please see the webpage for contact information of the embassy or consulate where you submitted your application." Am i expected to receive it in like 4 more days (Since right now it is working day 6) or am I waiting for it to change to issued? this is a K1 visa, if it matters.
  5. Thank you!! and that's good to know, i'm really glad. I'm sure you'll get approved anytime soon now Think I sent my police record a week or two after my interview (Nov 08 interview) and got it approved just yesterday, so I think our timeline may be similar in that sense
  6. Hey guys, good news, today the status changed from "application received" to "Approved"-- i'm just a little bit nervous about it since I've seen the others said theirs said "Issued" instead? Should I be waiting for that instead? also, @kryptonite, where did you get your tracking info? do they just email it to you? 16th dec (refused) -> 28th dec -> 03 jan -> 04 jan (application received) --> 06 jan (approved)
  7. i certainly hope that part is over !! lol, my interview was back in November ! I was missing my medical (it came in late... receptionist on the phone said it would get there on time.) and an incorrect police certified background check.
  8. Congratulations !! i'm happy for you (Curious how you didn't have an application ready status- so i'm still a little wary whether i'm accepted or not) Did you have to pay for premium delivery to get the tracking ?
  9. Is "Application received" an indicative of it being issued for good or is there a chance for rejection? For K-1 Visa. I'm not sure if it's too early for me to celebrate or not. I guess I'll have to wait 1 week for it to actually say issued if it is good news 16th dec -> 28th dec -> 03 jan -> 04 jan (application received)
  10. same here- my interview (K1) was at 8th of november, and then the case was updated on the 16th and now 28th of december. i am hoping they will be ready by the beginning of january, but i am not sure if i am being optimistic or not..
  11. thank you so much for posting this!! good to know someone else is in the same boat, think I am hitting week three since it's been "refused" for medical + correction of police criminal record certificate... i'm happy you're getting yours soon, all the best!
  12. Yes i'm an indonesian by nationality but I've been staying and living in Canada for a good while now.
  13. Hi all, I sent follow-up documents around two weeks ago to the consulate section, using the mail carrier that was approved by the US consulate (Canada post). Today I found out you can send it via the courier service that they provided, and I've only updated my status in the ais.usvisainfo site today to "Consulate section has requested more documents.", and now my current status is "Send Documents", something I've already done. Will this incur a delay and will they even accept it if I don't send it via the courier service? Thank you in advance
  14. i dont know how to edit my post to say that I figured it out, but worse case scenario I will get a 221g and a slight delay, and best case scenario the medical stuff will be sent to the consulate already.
  15. Hey folks, I was wondering if any of you have gone to a k1 visa interview with the medical examination result still pending? I had my medical done on the 1st of November and my interview is tomorrow morning. I called someone on the clinic and they told me they can't guarantee it may come tomorrow morning, and she told me that it would be refused temporarily on medical result grounds but I should still go to the interview. Anyone have any experience? Thank you
  16. Hi all, just wondering if it's possible to use the principal immigrant's (NOT the sponsor's) parent's assets to supplement the income requirement for the affidavit of support? of course I am not relying on them 100%-- but I'd like to show to the consulate officer that if things get rough my parents will be able to help me.
  17. For the letter of intent, I made it clear that I, as the beneficiary, intended to marry the petitioner within the 90 days period. I briefly laid out where the wedding will take place, and briefly described the proofs of my intention to marry the petitioner. The proofs were online chat logs between my mother in law, and chat logs between myself and the petitioner (all of which were very personal). Before I provided the evidences, I also clarified that none of these were altered and are genuine. I also virtually signed the paper, and made a space for my fiancé to sign it once he printed it.
  18. Thank you, glad to hear someone in the same boat as me. That's reassuring -- I'm in the process of getting the things needed for it (I just need the fingerprints left), and then getting it translated. Since I have everything in place I'm just going to do it anyway just in case, easier for me since I still have family there. It's always better safe than sorry in the immigration process am I right?
  19. Hey guys, sorry for asking again so soon but I figured it wouldn't hurt. When they ask for two 2x2 photo for the interview, do they mean of just myself, or of myself and my fiancé? (Thanks again for your help in advance, this forum has helped me a lot)
  20. Hey thank you, it's relieving hearing of someone else who went through the same exact thing, lol. currently i've only emailed my local police record checking services whether I'd be allowed to register my fingerprints for that purpose. Not to mention after that, it needs to be translated ... so many things. haha... 😁 unfortunately I found this detail shortly before NOA2 was received so this has to be done ASAP
  21. Haha, thanks! i'm not sure what to expect. I suppose I'll need to be as thorough as possible. Appreciate it.
