    midge and isi got a reaction from ToddB in Selective Service   
    Hi there, my husband was in the same boat but very close to the 26 year mark. We went to an open meeting with immigration officers. We were told from the officials that because a K-1 has the INTENT to immigrate that they need to register when they get to the USA. Even though the SS website says non-immigrants do not need to register USCIS has a different view because of the intent part.
    I would do it now, as when you Naturalize it asks for the date that you registered, to avoid any issues, do it and not worry about it.
    I would also not bank on being registered automatically.

    So I was sorta similar, For k-1 petition you just need the proof you have met. So your passport stamps and pictures will be enough for the initial petition of meeting withing the last two years. So don't worry over that. I sent pictures, and passport stamps, and a little from when i was home (skype records) but you don't need that for this point.
    You have a while (at least a year) before you need to have on-going evidence for embassy interview. So start collecting now! More pictures with date stamps while you are there for the next few months, outings with others. To be honest I don't think letters from people do that much good but you could get a few from people there. If you both take a bus trip somewhere see if you can get receipts, etc.
    I had my parents go with me to Ghana- so we had pictures of that which i think is a very helpful thing. If that is even in the realm it would be fun for them as well.
    When you get back make sure you document things- calls, skype, email, snail mail, etc.
    Also think about your I-134 since you are volunteering you most likely will need a co-sponsor.
    Hope that helps!

    A wonderful Ghana VJ member, Marissa (and now I call her my friend!) sent me a very specific, step-by-step guide from your departure at kotoka to baggage claim in the US. I will message it to you now... she has even included pictures with all of the information! So you can see what/where you are going and what things look like

    Ghana is tough- but with the right papers and evidence you will be fine.
    Your filing of the petition with W-2s/Tax information will not be used for your I-134 at the embassy, you need to re-submit, these documents are not needed for the petition to begin with.
    Fill out the I-134 with the last 3 years of tax transcripts. (For the future its the easiest way to do all forms for USISC- like the I-864 later on!) the number is 1-800-908-9946. They are free and usually arrive in 7-10 business days.
    Ghana questions all documents for thinking they may be fraud. (thats why you need the printed Birth Certificates now and not hand written) The thing with W-2 and the copies does not actually proof you filed your taxes. the transcript shows your filled and are up to date which is what they care about. For AOS I would suggest using them as well.
    Good luck- let me know if you have any more questions Ghana specific.

    Some people have said their fiance went through the citizen line with them. You can go through the non-citizen without a problem except the wait. There should be someone DOT/TSA at the beginning of the line- ask them if your fiance can go through the citizen line with you? Worth the ask. If not you wait....
