    Afrikan Queen got a reaction from PaulTheSheik in FIANCEE DENIED K-1 IN LAGOS, NIGERIA   
    Sorry to hear that.
    I disagree with JimVaPhuong. You were prepared but someone bailed out on you. Find someone you can trust and rely on to be your co-sponsor such as a family member. Honestly, I sent about 20 pics to my fiance, but it gas a variety of pics (ei. with family, friends, just the two of us). Hope it doesn't effect our decision. Do you have anymore pics to present? What form were you given? Looks like you are given a second chance. Wish you the best.

    I would say no, don't send anything too intimate. Send a selection of email that show contact over time, that's it.

    A color copy is not necessary. Neither is a certified copy. They just need to see a copy of the document. I've sent black and white copies on two occasion and they were accepted.

    If you already updated your profile, we would see the country and flag. We don't, so you haven't.
    How money transfers in either direction will be viewed, would depend on the totality of circumstances but I generally advise against using money transfers as evidence of a relationship. This is BECAUSE they can be viewed either negatively or positively (from either direction). It's best to concentrate on other forms of evidence of relationship. The most powerful evidence is that which shows you spending time together in person. Passport stamps and/or boarding passes do that. Second, is evidence of how and how frequently you communicate. Third is photos together.

    If you have been waiting over the expected period of time "5 months" then you can contact your congressmen to find out why your petition is taking so long. Most people say that they wont do anything till around 6 months.

    Afrikan Queen reacted to Leatherneck in Very very very tough life now... Plz HELP   
    OP, do not look at the difficulty of finding a job as defeat. This is a very tough labor market, you have good credentials, so do not take it too personal.
    Some employer will recognize your skills, education and experience and see you as an asset to the company, then make you an offer. You have to stay in the fight until you cross paths with that employer. Also, there are people without jobs with many years of experience and have the same degrees as you have, the market is tight and the competition is fierce.
    You and your sweetheart have come too far to give up now, things will get better and your relationship will be stronger as a result of pulling together through this very trying time.
    Good luck.

    Afrikan Queen reacted to Lainie B in AOS Case transfer   
    Getting transferred to CSC usually means you will not have an interview, they will review your petition and approve your green card without interviewing you.
    However sometimes CSC does decide that you actually do need to be interviewed. If that happens it will be transferred to your local office first, and the interview will be conducted at your local office.

    You will get an RFE, send it back asap, check and double check is the key. I have seen the RFE delay your progress by up to 1-3 months. But most likely will not be the case on a simple fix.

    Afrikan Queen reacted to JimVaPhuong in Thinking I have been had   
    There are only two ways he can adjust status and stay in the US. One is the "normal" K1 visa way - he files an I-485 and you submit an I-864 affidavit of support, along with the normal evidence. The other is VAWA.
    He can't file for adjustment of status the "normal" way without your help. He would need your affidavit of support. They won't approve his green card without it.
    VAWA is available to anyone who is married to a US citizen or permanent resident, and has been "battered or subjected to extreme cruelty" by their spouse. While many VAWA applicants are genuine, there are also many scammers. The scammers are usually the ones who can't or won't pretend to be in a sincere relationship long enough to adjust status the "normal" way, or who may not otherwise be eligible to adjust status (an EWI, for example).
    Your husband has done some homework, but he is apparently not completely educated on the process. His assertion that you are somehow legally required to pay for his adjustment of status is baloney. In addition, his statement about bringing him here "under your support" implies that he believes you are legally obligated to support him. Again, this is baloney. The I-134 affidavit of support you signed for him to get a visa is not legally binding on you. You aren't legally obligated to pay for anything. I have no idea whether his embassy can help him with an attorney, but that's a tactic I've not heard of before.
    Anyway, if he decides to pursue a VAWA case then you will not be involved at all in the USCIS process, and they will probably not contact you. That makes sense. If you had actually abused him then anything you said to USCIS would be suspect, anyway. His problem as it relates to you is that he needs evidence of abuse to successfully win a VAWA case. His recordings of your arguments, if they actually exist, are probably useless unless you've made threats during those arguments regarding his immigration status. Using someone's immigration status as a method of manipulating them is considered a form of abuse for the purposes of VAWA. If he's being coached then he probably knows that the evidence he's got is insufficient, so he'll try to manufacture more evidence to support his case. This means he may try to start an argument with you and then call the police claiming you either harmed him (self inflicted wounds are not uncommon in these cases), or that you threatened to harm him. He may also request a restraining order against you, which would basically block you from going into your own home. These things create a record with the local police department that he can use to support his VAWA case. The seriously bad news is that you'll have a record for domestic violence, even if it's all bullcrap.
    As painful as it might be, you might have to leave your home while the divorce is pending in order to save your reputation and avoid DV charges. If you remain in the home, and if he wants the evidence bad enough, he'll make it happen.
