  1. A thread for people that filed their AOS packet in February 2020 to share their experience to keep track of trends and whatnot.
  2. Hi all, Happy New Year! Didn't see a thread started yet so here we are! My timeline thus far: Package mailed out: 12/24/2019 Case received at Nebraska Service Center: 01/02/2020
  3. First of all, happy new year to everyone. Anyone filing in January? I'm currently prepping our package so we can hopefully send it out soon. Either way, figured we could use progress post for our AOS like the K-visa people have in their subforum so here we are.
  4. Hi Guys! So, today - May 1st, 2020, I received the RFE letter. I wanted to share everything with you and see if you can help me with the preparation of the packet. I want to thank you in advance for your help. You guys are amazing!! 🏆 This is what I sent to USCIS on July 12, 2019. Vermont center. Evidence of our bona fide relationship: • Copy of our Marriage Certificate • Copies of our joint tax return for 2017 and 2018 • Copies of our tax transcripts for 2017 and 2018 • Copies of our W2's for 2017 and 2018 showing same address • Copies of bank statements from our join bank account for the past 24 months • Copy of our joint account debit cards • Copy of our apartment renters insurance showing joint policy • Copy of my spouse's life insurance policy showing my name as the beneficiary • Copy of our original apartment rental contract showing joint cohabitation • Copy of our renewed apartment rental contract showing joint cohabitation • Notarized sworn affidavit letters of support from family and friends • Letter from the Building Management Office confirming our tenancy and joint cohabitation • Copies of electricity bills for the past 24 months showing joint account • Copy of our Costco joint membership • Copies of checks that we have paid the apartment rent with from our joint bank account and the landlord's receipts. • Copy of check that we have paid the IRS from our joint bank account • Copies of medical records, phone bills, online orders, furniture deliveries, bank correspondence, IRS correspondence, Department of Motor Vehicles, USPS package deliveries, promotional materials and other showing same address • Copy of an email from a real estate investor in regards to future investments addressed to both of us • Copy of a reservation confirmation for a United Airlines client event that we attended in New York City showing both of our names • Copies of Driver's Licence and State ID showing same address • Copy of our airline tickets from our trip to Chicago, Illinois • Copy of our hotel reservation confirmation letter in Chicago, Illinois • Explanation to why we don’t have a joint health care insurance • Explanation to why we don’t have a joint phone plan • Pictures together from 2016 to 2019. BELOW IS THE RFE LETTER. They are basically asking for the same things. I don't understand. Compared to other people that I know, who have gotten green cards, I think I have sent more than enough. Unfortunately I don't have anything additional from what I sent 10 months ago. We don't have a kid, we don't have a car, we don't have a joint phone bill because his company pays for his bill and we don't have joint health insurance because we've been changing jobs frequently and we couldn't be on the same plan. Do you think if I send the same documents, but with new dates for the past 10 months it will be sufficient??? AWAITING FOR YOUR ADVICE :))
  5. A thread for people that filed their AOS packet in March 2020 to share their experience to keep track of timing and updates. I'm a brand new poster, but I've been lurking on these forums for almost a year while prepping our AOS application. (My husband's been here since 2016 on an F-1 visa, we got married last summer.) We knew for awhile we were planning to file at the start of March, but I'm so glad I spotted the I-944 update in time to scramble our materials together. Luckily, we had lots of evidence but it was a lot to assemble - the biggest of our packets by far. Anyway, I mailed the entire application (I-130 (and I-130A), I-485, I-944, I-864, I-765, and I-131) yesterday to the Chicago Lockbox. Assembled it in many folders based on those who have come before me (thank you to any and all for the guidance)! Fingers crossed.
  6. In case you did not get an update, But beginning Sunday, March 15th until further notice, The American Cultural Center in Algiers at the United States Embassy will be closed to visitors. Keep an eye out for any updates. If any has an interview soon I highly recommend reaching out to the Embassy in terms of your interview. Refer to the image below!
  7. I'm back again! Time to tackle this I-751 Removal of Conditions! I heard it takes longer than when we were doing our AoS, and i'm about to submit my packet on mid-January, any tips from previous filers or ones that are gonna file soon as well? Any help would be appreciated! Nice to be back on visajourney ❤️ -- Bobby
  8. Hi all I am a K1 Visa recipient and my husband and I are filing our AOS soon. I have a question regarding the required tax documentation on the I-864, Affidavit of Support. I understand that if we file AOS before the end of 2019 our most recent tax year would have been 2018, and we've got that. But if we file in January 2020, would our most recent tax year be 2019 already, thus requiring the proper documentation for 2019 instead? I ask because the company my husband works for doesn't send out W2s until February, but we REALLY don't want to wait any longer to file our AOS because my I-94 had been expired since October 22nd. We've planned to file this December 16th but something came up, and we might have to reroute the budget for that one onto something else.... sigh (I know, I know, we're filing late, but life happens and so here we are...) 😅 So I'm thinking: 1) Perhaps USCIS would allow the submission of 2018 records due to the fact that tax season for 2019 won't be over until April 2020 anyways? 2) Perhaps we could include an explanation on our cover letter as to why we're submitting 2018 records despite 2019 ending? So yeah, I would appreciate any input from anyone who can help. Thank you all
  9. Hello fellow VJ, I will be filing I-751 (Jointly) in June 2020 however, there is a high probability that my wife (USC) and I will move out from the existing address (address which will be filed on papers) as my wife will start her College in fall 2020. I would appreciate if someone can help to answer few questions. 1) If we file I-751 from San Jose (Santa Clara County) address and later move to Oakland (Alameda County) does it affect I-751 application processing time? Based on various forums I understand that both San Jose and Oakland applicants are interviewed at San Jose field office. 2) If we move to Southern California (LA/San Bernardino/San Diego County) after filing I-751 from San Jose, CA. How does USCIS will process the application? Will it reset the timer at the processing center? 3) Does my wife have to file I-861 and AR-11?
  10. Beto O’Rourke’s spirited run for the US Senate in Texas last month has prompted powerful voices in the Democratic party establishment to tout the outgoing Texas congressman as a 2020 presidential candidate who, as the party’s standard-bearer, would offer a vision of America contrasting against that of Republicans. However, a new analysis of congressional votes from the non-profit news organisation Capital & Main shows that even as O’Rourke represented one of the most solidly Democratic congressional districts in the United States, he has frequently voted against the majority of House Democrats in support of Republican bills and Trump administration priorities. Capital & Main reviewed the 167 votes O’Rourke has cast in the House in opposition to the majority of his own party during his six-year tenure in Congress. Many of those votes were not progressive dissents alongside other left-leaning lawmakers, but instead votes to help pass Republican-sponsored legislation. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/dec/20/beto-orourke-congressional-votes-analysis-capital-and-main
