    road417king got a reaction from ucmc2013 in Best options to bring my wife   
    Also keep copies of the itineraries for travel as well as itineraries of any family members that attended the wedding, etc.
    Phone records (calls made and received), and make her life insurance beneficiary, if they will let you, get a life insurance policy on her with you as the beneficiary.
    If you have a will, make sure it's updated for her to be your beneficiary there as well.
    When I put my wife on my accounts while she was still in Japan, they will ask for an SSN, however you simply tell them she doesn't have one yet and that you're applying for her residency. BofA will use a fake SSN that they default to for non-resident account holders.
    Also, if you're sending money to help support her, make sure you keep copies of all the money transfers along with her keeping copies of all the receipts when she got the money.
    Good luck!

    Seiko got her approval letter today, dated 4/15 and her new card has been ordered (letter says up to 60 days, assume it will come sooner). Updating the information below. Finally!
    By the way, for the RFE, I submitted more tax forms, travel itineraries for Seiko, myself, her kids from Japan, her niece from Japan, a ton of photos from those trips where they flew to Boston from Japan and spent the holidays with my family. Also, an affidavit from my father and mother (I recall reading here on VisaJourney that affidavits from family are not recommended, but when I called USCIS, they told me that affidavits from family are not only accepted but welcome).
    Thanks all for your patience!!!
    Mike and Seiko

    road417king got a reaction from Darnell in Military Record   
    Hey Loto,
    In what capacity did your wife work in the US military, did she enlist and go to bootcamp? Did she go to officer candidate school? Was she ROTC while in college? Knowing the capacity would let us answer the question better.
    Example: If she was a civilian contractor or employee working on a military base, then no, there are no military records that would need to be submitted, however if she got a DD Form 214 (herein referred to as a "214") for any service she did as an active member of the US Military, then a copy of the 214 is what's required (officers and enlist folk alike get one when getting discharged from the US Military).
    Hope this helps!
    Mike

    road417king got a reaction from Darnell in how   
    Contrary to popular belief, your congressman or congresswoman can't rush the immigration process, all they can do is ask "hey, what's going on with case XXX1234567890?" which generally just reminds the NVC (or NBC in your case, whatever they do) that there are people waiting on them to get things done in what us mere mortals would consider a "reasonably timely manner".
    Sometimes it helps, other times it doesn't.
    As for invoking the power of the POTUS and actually getting him to work on your behalf for your immigration, remember that Obama's own aunt is still living here in the US illegally and he isn't doing anything to help her with a visa. He says he wants the process to run it's natural course.
    Now how there can be a "natural course" for the president's aunt when it comes to immigration is beyond me. But I digress.
    Basically, my advice is don't hold your breath that Obama's going to come to your rescue.
    And good luck!
    Mike
    P.S. Yes, I sound cynical but I'm old and have a right to be cynical about US politicians in general...
