  1. Hello, I am starting a thread to track I-130 for parents filed in May 2020. Please join the conversation and share your journey/process. I filed I-130 (with Consular processing) for both my parents online today, May 4th, 2020. Got IOE receipt numbers immediately.

  3. I applied for a K1 visa for my fiance (Sept 2018) and at the interview ( July 2019) they wanted some correction to be made on the AOS which we did same day. He was also told he had been approved and kept his passport but sent an email 1wk later saying the AOS was received after the expiration of the NOA2 so they can't extend the NOA2. The email said it would be sent back to USCIS with an intent to revoke. I've called USCIS , NVC and Lagos consulate and no one has the paperwork yet. So I went ahead and got married and now in the process of filing for him again . However one of the questions on the 130 form states " Have you EVER previously filed a petition for this beneficiary or any other alien?." and also asks what the outcome is. What do I do?

  8. Any fellow Houston June 2019 filers? My PD is June 10, 2019. welcome to update your progress here!
  9. Hi everyone, My husband (citizen) got married with his ex wife back in 2010, and filed 130&485 for her right after, and she's a green card holder since then. They got separated sometime in 2015, didn't live together anymore, but filing tax together to save money (which is legal according to IRS). I met my husband in late 2018, so he filed divorce paperwork right after we got serious, and due to the 2-month wait period, etc. the divorce was finalized in March 2019. And then we got married in June, 2019, and filed 130&485 for me after that. Background: I came to US as a F-1 student in 2013 and got H1b visa in 2016. My H1 extension case is pending and my company also filed an EB3 I-140 for me (approved, waiting for PD to be current). SO, my question is, does this seem like a bid red flag? I knew it's gonna be a red flag for them to question more in the interview, etc. Can anyone share their similar situation please? Thank you.
  10. Is any March 2019 Filer who got approved this Month? (June2019)
  11. Hello, everyone. first time posting After a month of gather paperwork and doing researches myself. Finally today I am feeling confident to send out the package, but I will want to post my package details over here, see if anything needed to included in it or that's good to go. I have package on the following order, with my cover letter on top of everything. -------------------------------------LINE-------------------- ADDRESS DATE USCIS Attn: I-130 PO Box 21700 Phoenix, AZ 85036 RE: I-130, Petition for Alien Relative Petitioner: AAA Relative: BBB To Whom It May Concern: I am filing the enclosed Form I-130, Petition on behalf of BBB, the beneficiary. I, AAA, am a U.S. citizen petitioner, and BBB is my spouse. I am an active duty military member who was stationed in Yokota Air Base, Japan. A permanent change of station order separated my spouse and myself. She is on my order and could not come with me because she does not have a valid visa. I kindly request a military expedite on my application. The following documents accompany and support this petition: 1. Form G-1450, Authorization for Credit Card Transactions, to cover the filing fee; 2. Form G-1145, E-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance, to get the application notification at the earliest time; 3. Form I-130 Petition for Alien Relative; 4. Form I-130A, Supplemental Information for Spouse Beneficiary, for the beneficiary; 5. Two (2) photos of the petitioner; 6. Copy of petitioner’s Certificate of Naturalization, petitioner’s U.S. Passport and beneficiary’s Foreign Passport; 7. Copy of original foreign marriage certificate of petitioner and beneficiary; Copy of original family register (birth certificate). Both certificates are translated and notarized. 8. Evidence of bona fide marriage. If you have any questions or concerns, please call me at 123-123-1234. Thank you for your prompt consideration of this I-130 Petition. Sincerely, AAA -----------------------LINE-------------------- Questions: 1. I put cover letter on top of entire package, is this correct? I've seem most application put the money order/ check on top of everything. (In my case, I have cover letter, then G-1450) 2. Both G-1450 and G-1145 instruction states that to put on top of package, but which one actually goes on the very top? 3. Rest of the documents are in order just like the cover letter. Anything seems off? 4. My spouse is still in Japan, obviously she doesn't need to sign the 130A per instruction, and I am preparer. and according to filling instruction, I don't need to included 2 passport photo of beneficiary in the package since she is not in the US. is it better to leave it that way? OR should I scan the 130A to her, she can sign and scan it back to me. She can also take passport photo and I will go print it here in the US. Is this too extra and just follow what instruction directed, just don't do it? 5. I've stabled 130, 130A since they are multiple pages, and everything else is just single page documents, I just place behind the forms, should I stable them as well, or leave it that way. 6. I am still active duty military, how possible are they going to expedite my application based on my cover letter? (Actually maybe I will just call military help line after I get the case#, see how it goes.). Thank you for your time for reading this.
  12. Hi everyone! I'm guessing someone else has asked this question before. I'm filling out I-130, I-485 and related forms and in some of them, the fields won't let me type numbers, letters (if the field only allows for a date), or slash for N/A. How do I get around this? For example, when asked my status on Form I-94, it won't allow me to type F1, just the F. Same for the expiration date of authorized stay on Form I-94 which is D/S but the field only allows for numbers. I've read somewhere that opening the file in chrome actually works for typing some of these characters. However, when I tried, it didn't save any changes to the file. Does it print them though? I do not own a printer (yet-I'm sure I'll have to get one soon for the multiple times I'll need to check everything) so I couldn't test it. Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
  13. Hi everyone! My husband and I are the process of filling out the I-130, I-485, and related forms for my change of status from F-1. I've been freaking out for a while now because of our specific situation. My husband suffers from a physical condition and has been dependent on his parents since he was 21. For this reason, he doesn't work and has always lived with them. He's never filed taxes and doesn't have any assets on his name, only his bank account but no credit cards. I have no clue what to provide as proof of bona fide marriage. We don't have assets on our name, we both have separate health insurance and we're pretty broke right now on our own so I don't think we'll be purchasing any other insurance in the near future. Both of our cars are under our relatives' names as well as our car insurance. We dated for over 3 years before getting married but I don't think that we have anything to prove this besides pictures, affidavits from family and friends, and maybe hotel receipts of trips we did together. I plan to add him to my bank account as to show a joint account, but I'm not sure what else we could do...? Also, would it be recommendable to have him add me to his? Or just one joint account would suffice? We pretty much have lived these past three years between his house and mine and he moved to my place this month. Again, "my place" is really my aunt's place. Is there a way to add us to any formal document to prove that we live together? I'm thinking about having him change his address on his driver's license and school stuff but other than that I'm clueless. Also, is there a way to add us to our car titles on time for filing the forms? (we plan to file in a couple of weeks). The reason I am asking this is I have no idea what are the requirements for leases or titles (can three people be on the title as owners, for example?). I don't know if it is necessary to have a credit history or similar in order to do that (neither of us has any so far). I appreciate any insight you guys have. I will probably ask a bunch of questions regarding the forms pretty soon as well. Thank you!!
