    AandD got a reaction from dragi in CROATIA   
    Mene ceka agonija sredjivanja hrvatskih papira. Konzulat u NY je grozan. Chicago i Washington su ok, ali je meni NY najblizi.
    Meni su rekli da trebas doci osobno u konzulat i izvaditi putni list. S tim mozes uci jednokratno u Hrvatsku i tamo srediti papire. 
    Ja ovih dana saljem sve za US putovnicu jer sam US drzavljanin.

    Congratulations to all of you who got their interview or oath letters!
    I have to say that my inteview was smooth and easy. The IO didn't ask for my passport, only to check my driver's licence and a green card. I knew those 100 questions by my heart, and I'm sure all of you'll be just fine.
    Swearing was the crown of everything I did for the past 7 years. It feels so good to have all of this behind me. Proud to be an American Citizen! 🎉🇺🇸

    AandD reacted to Ivy. in NOA2 was approved but we broke up, do I cancel?   
    If you havent spoken in four months, the break up seems pretty final to me. My husband and I broke up a billion times, but maximum we could do without talking to each other was 5 days, even when we both tried dating other people and living normal lives in our countries. Lack of communication on both of your parts seems like a bad sign to me.
    Don't marry to "give it a try". I don't judge anyone's reasons for getting married, but I do believe that generally many people tend to take this kind of thing less seriously than it should be taken. I see marriage/serious relationship as a commitment and decision you make every single day - to be with that person. To build a future with her/him.
    Having said that, I do believe in trying very hard. I never considered it to be waste of time/money/whatever. If you want, you could call her and see what's up if you still want to give it a try. Do not mention the NOA2. You don't want her using you for a green card (I am not saying that she will, but it happens). Just tell her you were thinking about her and wondering how she was. If you guys mend it, great. If not, nothing happens. You can and should cancel this petition.
    I am sorry you had to go through this. Hopefully the next person you meet will live in the U.S. so you won't have to go through this process and distance twice. It sucks. Good luck with whatever happens.

    AandD reacted to Martyshk in Urgent Question about my situation please   
    Just to reiterate: this is an IMMIGRATION HELP FORUM (since you are very fond of capital letters), not a "how-do-I-get-back-at-my-ex-forum".
    That's why any input on the question at hand (which is as vague as vague gets) will be useless and devoid of any real substance.

    AandD reacted to Kathryn41 in K-1 Wife vanished after receiving conditional green card   
    I'm sorry some people have been so judgmental of you in these circumstances. Certainly, that is uncalled for and inappropriate.
    Riogan gave you some good advice as did Vanessa. File for divorce, change the locks on the house, get a new phone number, get new email address, make sure her name isn't on any sort of joint accounts or anything like that (I suspect you have already removed them, but just in case you haven't . . .), and when the divorce is final send a copy to USCIS (include her name and A#), explain that she abandoned you the day she received her green card and that you do not believe she was honest in her reasons for getting married in the first place. Include details and any documentation you have in a straight-forward, non-emotional way.
    Another possibility instead of her planning this from the start (which she could have done as well) is I wonder if she really believed the 'myth' that all Americans are wealthy and the streets are filled with endless opportunity here in the US - and was disillusioned when she got here and realized that she wasn't in for the 'easy life' she had hoped? Her demands for money, for 'address', for prestige and such really seem to indicate that these may have been her real motivation for getting married, and when they didn't materialize, any love she did have for you also went out the window with her disappointment. Regardless, she did leave once she got her conditional green card and that does give you a bit of an advantage.
    She needs to file to remove conditions on her green card either in 2 years or once she is divorced. It is in your best interest to get divorced rather than waiting out those two years. She will have to prove that she entered the marriage in good faith and that the two of you lived in an honest marriage - her sudden departure once she got a green card does not do much to prove her 'good faith'. I think you can expect that once she discovers she needs evidence of her 'good faith' she might try and come back, professing her love, professing her willingness to try again - and will show up just long enough to get what she needs, and then take off again.
    If she does go back to Europe and remains there for an extended period of time (over a year) without special permission to be outside of the US, that too would work in your favour. If she tries to re-enter she may find that her green card status has automatically been revoked - especially if they have your divorce and documentation of your suspicions on file.
    The most important thing for you to do is to move on with your life. You were willing to work on a marriage with this woman, but it didn't work out. It may be that she planned to leave from the beginning, or it may be that she became disillusioned with the reality of the US when she had expected much more. For whatever reason it was, I am sorry it didn't work out and encourage you to do what you can to protect yourself if she is a 'schemer', or to just move on with your life if she was 'real'. Once you are divorced, the immigration problem is hers. She will have to prove her integrity; she will have to prove her account. (You may wish to include copies of the police 'no action' records for when she called the police to the house with your report to USCIS. If you provide them it will look better than if she provides them, if there was no action taken. You then get to include your version of the story and that will be on file).
    Good luck to you, and again, I am sorry for what you are going through, and that you have been subjected to some inappropriate judgmental comments on this forum.

    Just want to share that my husband passed away this morning... peacefully... he had brain cancer and we have been fighting for more than a year now... there was a point in our fight that we thought we are winning... but we lost... i am just thankful that he passed away peacefully... in his sleep, and i got the chance to tell him everyday that i love him... and that he is my love, my life, my world, my home and my everything...
    Whenever I read people here posting marriage not working out, just using me for greencard, giving up... and a lot of things... i am so sad...
    I found the perfect husband... the perfect person... and yet he was taken away from me in such a short time...
    I promise I will honor his name... i will honor our love... and I do not think I could love other person as much as I loved him... and still loving him... my love for him will not die until my last breath...

    and the B1/B2 situation ...yes it does occur if they consider you have had more than your "typical" VWP usage.
    If you get the wrong guy on the day, you go through to secondary and its no picnic.
    Just because it hasn't happened in your situation doesn't mean it DOESN'T HAPPEN. There doesn't have to have been anything wrong with your arrival/visa/circumstances... it can be for .......(whatever) reason.
    Don't assume your case is the rule... there are always exceptions to the so called rule.
    It may well be that in this situation it was a language/communication issue...(husband/fiance? whatever) why is it that when something goes wrong people assume it is dodgy? Be fair... the OP and his fiancee are hurting right now and need some positive input.
    so... to the OP.. if you have anything else helpful to add... now is the time.

    AandD reacted to ceadsearc in One messed up system   
    Because if every person could bring all of then relatives there would be millions and millions more immigrants every year to this country. Where would it end? Someone brings all 10 siblings right away and they bring their spouses and kids, etc. It just isn't feasible.
    In American culture, adults typically do not live with their parents or siblings or adult children. Married adults typically DO live with their spouses and minor children and you'll note there isn't a wait for visas for them to come.
    Coming to America is a priviledge. It's not a right. The fact that sibling petitions are allowed at all says to me the system is quite generous, not broken as you say. I can only imagine. Ring separated from your family for a long time is awful, but your family member made the choice to immigrate here. They did not have to.

    AandD reacted to Kathryn41 in Read this prior to crossing US border with K1!   
    It almost makes you want to print out the instructions from USCIS that say "Do NOT make any marriage plans until you get the visa". You obviously ran into a neophyte border officer who knew nothing about a K-1 visa and was trying to pretend he did. You proved to USCIS that you intend to marry - that is the letter of intent - and that is all that is required. We have heard of a lot of 'errors' made by border authorities - and an alarming story about one who deliberately mis-used his power and is currently under investigation because of that.
    I do think it is a good idea to try and check ahead at your anticipated border crossing - but even then there are no guarantees. The week before we planned to cross into the US I went to the border crossing station at Algonac on the St. Clair River. I specifically asked the border guard there if they could process a K-1 and what I needed to have to bring my animals and houseplant with me. He was very knowledgeable and gave me great information, along with saying, sure, no problem, he could process a K-1. Fast forward to the following week, we show up at the Algonac crossing and the woman who was on duty refused, outright refused to process the K-1. We then had to drive to the nearest major border crossing adding another 4 hours onto our ultimate travel time of an already 2 day trip. Of course, when we crossed there and I explained what had happened they said that they should have processed us at Algonac and didn't understand why they didn't. If we had known to expect that we would have taken a different route that would have taken us through Detroit instead but we were trying to avoid the heavy transport traffic line ups at the bridge since I had 6 cats in the van with us.
    So, even best laid plans can go astray. As my Dad used to say, it is difficult to make things idiot-proof because idiots are so ingenious. I will include a lot of US border guards in that definition.
