  1. For anyone interested, my wife used my account to help so many of you. She did this because she got banned on her own account for no apparent reason some while back. She formerly posted and helped so many under the name “nicknick” I believe.

    Unfortunately she passed away this week after a two and a half year battle with cancer. She even kept up her support for y’all during this time, and I know many many of you appreciated her input.

      We have no words to express how truly sorry we are about your wife and what you must be going through now. 


      We would read her/ your posts completely unaware of what you both were going through - because in our experience, cancer and many diseases are a shared battle-.


      Our deepest condolences and a strong virtual hug. 

      If you feel like talking could help in some way, we're here to read/ listen.

      So very sorry for your loss


      i too.  lost a spouse to cancer (back in 2007)  and i can understand its not only a loss of her but a loss now of direction.   we had so many plans for our later years after retirement and they were suddenly gone.   


      and for the many she may have helped here ,  i say thank u from all of us

      Thank you to those that have reached out, here and privately. I have been informed that her username was actually Nich-Nick and her profile can be found here. So added to this one, you will see how devoted she has been since 2008 in helping with UK immigration and taxation issues. Her timeline was actually my factually correct K1 journey. I know many of you will miss her.

  2. The clinic wants to see it to check for any drug or alcohol charges, which would be evaluated as part of the mental health/addictions component of their report. They would return the original so it could be taken to the interview.
  3. The medical clinic does not sent the police certificate to the embassy.
  4. The London interview is all about her and her documents. All that is needed from the petitioner is your affidavit of support form I-134. Review the list on the London website https://uk.usembassy.gov/visas/fiancee-2/required-documents/
  5. You can go through the IRS interactive assistant to see if she qualifies as your dependent. https://www.irs.gov/help/ita/whom-may-i-claim-as-a-dependent If she is allowed as a dependent, then go through the interactive What is my Filing Status? https://www.irs.gov/help/ita/what-is-my-filing-status
  6. It was because you should have posted in the UK FORUM as a new question. This specific thread is not for questions about anything to do with London. It is supposed to be where people tell about receiving the IR1/CR1 visa interview notification from NVC. Your K1 process is different from the spouse visa process. Try starting a new topic.
  7. Also include your courier confirmation once the system lets you in to register your appointment and make courier arrangements. They quit asking for paper photocopies several years ago. IR1/CR1 files are all digital now. The “copy” is already in your NVC uploaded file. They will look at your original birth certificate, marriage certificate, deed poll etc then hand those back. Also London doesn’t need more relationship evidence at interview. It’s going to be easier than you are imagining. Also there is no dress code for the interview. In the summer, you would see everything from men in business suits to others in cut off jeans and tank tops (which won’t likely be worn this time of year). Dress warm and comfortable. And any long lines will be non-immigrant interviews. You skip that queue and go straight up to the security booth. Same inside, go up to the desk (ahead of any non-immigrants queued) to get your sticker showing your call up number. Read some London interview reviews here. Look for IR1/CR1 posts, and skip K1s. https://www.visajourney.com/reviews/index.php?trim=no&cty=&cnty=United Kingdom&page=1&dfilter=5&topic=
  8. Maybe you need to talk to them again about meaning of foreign driver. You are a permanent resident of the US now. Wondering if that makes a difference. Try calling the general AAA customer service number and see if they give you the same info. Maybe skip the Austria stuff because you are a resident of the US and licensed to drive in CA. The person you talked to might not understand the nuances of immigration and pegged you as an Austrian driver/resident. I would get a second opinion in case the clerk got it wrong. I wonder if that is a California thing. State Farm in Texas told us the opposite…the car is insured, not the person. So if I allow somebody to drive my car, it is insured. I hope you get it worked out soon.
  9. TurboTax will do all it’s magic and proper calculations if you leave the SSN field blank. Ignore prompts that you haven’t entered it. It will go through your return at the end finding things that might need attention like you haven’t entered the SSN. Fix everything but the SSN. Decline e-file prompts. Go to print section and there are several choices. “Print return for filing” will print what is submitted to IRS (plus some instructions like where to mail.). In the case of an ITIN application, you should use the Austin, TX address provided on the ITIN instructions on the IRS website rather than your local filing address provided by Turbo.Tax. The above description is from using a desktop version installed from a CD. I don’t know if online is different.
  10. W7s are not part of tax software. You won’t be efiling with an ITIN application. You have to prepare the return with any tax software, leaving the SSN/ITIN space empty. Print it. Prepare the W7 Provide the ID requirements for the W7. Passport usually. Prepare a statement electing for the German spouse to be treated as a resident alien for tax purposes. Not part of tax software. Maii it all on paper to an Austin, TX IRS address. Or go to an IRS Acceptance Agent who can certify a copy of the foreign passport and send it all off for you. The German spouse must be physically present at the Acceptance Agent. There are overseas Acceptance Agents.
  11. And that is pretty much the exact statement I have posted many times that we created (based on Pub 519 instructions) and mailed with our tax return the year I entered the US and had no greencard or enough substantial presence.
  12. There have been times when a given month seems to have been totally skipped (like last January). As much as people try to establish a pattern, (like previous “end of month” and before that “middle of month”) it sometimes just changes.
  13. I told you how to submit a statement (if you need one) in my post in this thread. Here https://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/795745-how-can-i-file-jointly-as-an-f1-married-to-a-us-citizen/?do=findComment&comment=10796002 And for the total of what the IRS says on this topic see Publication 519 US Tax Guide for Aliens by the IRS. It covers all the details of resident alien or non resident, students, exemptions, statements, etc. Dive into Chapter 1. Note that the 2021 edition is the latest published, but had anything changed, it would have been replaced. Just remember when it says 2021, read it as 2022 for your purposes. Pub. 519 https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p519.pdf
  14. You have to meet one of 2 tests to already be a resident alien for tax purposes, or you may elect with you spouse to be one if you don’t pass either test. Green card test—No you don’t meet this Substantial presence test—Work out the formula below based on days present in the US. From the IRS: You will be considered a United States resident for tax purposes if you meet the substantial presence test for the calendar year. To meet this test, you must be physically present in the United States (U.S.) on at least: 31 days during the current year, and 183 days during the 3-year period that includes the current year and the 2 years immediately before that, counting: All the days you were present in the current year, and 1/3 of the days you were present in the first year before the current year, and 1/6 of the days you were present in the second year before the current year. Use the tax year so count all days 2022, 1/3 of days 2021, 1/6 of days 2020. Do you have enough days? If you have to use the election because you don’t have enough substantial presence, you create and sign a document to go with your tax return. TurboTax has no way to submit such document with an efile. It is a software thing that the IRS has no provisions for accepting efile with such a document. You can print “tax return for filing” with TurboTax, add your statement, and mail. It will tell you the address for mailing. The above is how the IRS tells you to do it. It is unlikely the IRS would hunt you down and demand to count your days present if you didn’t write a statement.
