  2. So alot has happened since i been this site so I will try to make it short and explain myself. My wife ( then fiance ) came here january 2017 we got married in march 2017 , we had our long distance relationship since fall 2015 so alot of time has been put into this , i even visited twice . Ever since 2017 there has always been a communication issue between us and maybe that was because of being brought up differently im not too sure. Arguments , verbal attacks , lack of communication , divorce threats , silent treatment , fighting have all been happening atleast once a month ever since even with having a daughter back november 2017 it never got easier. I have my faults and im willing to work on my flaws but im with someone who will delfect , provoke , and use verbal attacks to get back at me for things. She will claim im a violent person , i have a temper etc etc. but the question has always been in this two way thing we have called marriage what has her input been? Why has this husband of mine gotten mad or loud? Instead of playing the victim all the time and taking responsiblity for her own inputs in the marriage its gotten to the point where she can threaten me with divorce multiple times , disrepects me infront of people , has called me all the names in the world , and still will blame me for everything on the sun. Right now im at my parents house and were just taking a "break" this separation will result in two things . 1 she calls me and shes finally ready to work on ourselves and we move on on all past things or 2 we stay separated for a year and i file divorce " no fault divorce" i tihnk they call it in nc . The only thing i care about now is my daughter and there is no point trying to force someone to stay married to you if there just going to keep threatening divorce to you every month. In this mess her 2 year GC expires next year , thoughts on what to do ?
  3. I am in a bit of a predicament while I'm preparing the evidence for my ROC on my green card: Me and my wife had a Chase Visa card together, she was the authorized user, and we both essentially had the same card with our names on it. We had the cards from day 1 of our marriage. After a year, we noticed a fraud transaction and had to cancel the card, to which Chase sent us new cards. We shredded the old credit cards since they were useless. Now as I am pulling the credit card statements from our first year of marriage, I noticed that the statement shows the old credit card number listed. So I am wondering, what use will it be if I send a scanned copy of me and my wife's credit card, but it does not match the number on the first year statement? Won't that be a red flag?
  4. Hello, Note: We live in San Diego and it is IMPOSSIBLE to get an infopass appointment. It's so frustrating but 365 days out of the year when I go online to make an appointment it says there's none available. So a few months back my husband had his greencard stolen (along with the entire wallet) and since we could not get an infopass appointment we just went down the the office before it closed and luckily someone of importance took pitty on us and answered our questions. We asked if we had to file the I-90 to get a new card or if we could just wait until we applied for his conditions to removed. He said we didn't have to file for the new card and we chose not to because we didn't want to spend the $500 when we knew we would just be applying for the I-751 a few months down the road. Well, now it's time to apply to remove those conditions but it says we need to send with our application a copy of the greencard front and back. We never scanned the greencard's back side. We only have a copy of the front. Do you think our application for I-751 is going to get denied if we do not send a copy of the back of the card? And now I am reading all of this info saying if you lose the card you HAVE to file for I-90 for a new card but we never did. Are we going to get in trouble for not filing for a new greencard when his last one was stolen? That man told us we didn't have to but I don't even know his name and now I am thinking he had no idea what he was talking about. If anyone knows or has been in this situation I would really grateful for any insight! Thank you!
  5. My husband is flying back to Colombia on Saturday to visit his family for 9 days. His green card expired April 22 and he has his extension letter. I searched the forums for Orlando and extension letter and couldn't find anything. Does anyone have any experience to share about immigration in Orlando (MCO) with the extension letter and expired GC? Thank you so much!!
  6. Has anyone renewed their drivers license in Atlanta with Expired GC and NOA? My GC expires on April 27th, so does my drivers license. I read on GA DDS website (here: https://dds.georgia.gov/information-non-us-citizens?con=1741471757&ty=dl) that they will only issue a one-time 120-day extension on current drivers license, but ..well it apparently takes at least a year now to get ROC approved.. And does DMV staff really know about this piece of info? I guess I just wanna to hear about more people's experience on this matter. Thanks

  8. Hello everyone, My wife and I are working on putting our package together and filling out the form, but there is one thing I got confused on. I looked at the example form available on this site but it doesn't help because that example uses two people with the same initials... I am the citizen and my wife is the green card holder. On part 7 it asks for the "petitioners" information and signature. Is my wife (the green card holder) the petitioner, or would that be me (the US citizen)? Then I guess I have the same question for part 8, it asks for info on "spouse or individual". Would that be me (the US citizen) or my wife (the green card holder)? I've read some different things online and I guess I went in circles and got confused. I would appreciate any help with this. Thanks for the help!
  9. Filed on Jan 27th 2018. Got the notice on Feb 5th 2018. Check was cashed the week of Jan 29th 2018. Realized yesterday that G 1145 is only accepted in lockbox locations (should have triple checked USCIS website for instructions..) My question now is do I need to be worried about my case because I sent the G1145 by mistake? Thanks.
  10. It's been 6 months and there is no update on if we are approved. How long does it usually take? The message is the same since 8/2017. What should I do? n August **, 2017, we received your Form CRI-89, Petition to Remove Conditions of Permanent Resident Status Received, Receipt Number WAC*******, and sent you the receipt notice that describes how we will process your case. Please follow the instructions in the notice. If you do not receive your receipt notice by September 10, 2017, please call Customer Service at 1-800-375-5283. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address. we filed the 751 form to get the card.
  11. Hi all, My husband received his NOA Extension Letter for i751 ROC this week. His GC expires in April. Logistically, what is the best thing to do with with the extension letter once his GC expires? It is two very thick sheets of paper, which would be impossible to keep in his wallet along with his GC. Would it be okay to scan the letter into a PDF and keep on his phone and maybe also keep a photocopy in the car? And if for some reason he was asked for it explain thats a scan or photocopy and the original is in our firesafe? I know if we plan to travel he needs the original for reentry, but I just don't want that letter to get destroyed being folded up in his wallet or something. Any ideas are welcome!
  12. I dont have it in hand yet, but per the digital scan of the outside provided by USPS, my NOA should be arriving today. So thats great news. But from the scan I noticed the NOA is addressed to my wife via her MAIDEN name? Is that cause of concern? Do I need an infopass appt?? I checked the scan of our submission and cover letter et al and its correct with her present name as we referenced the maiden name appropriately.? Everything since initial AOS submission has always been address to her current married name (w/ my last name)...including the last NOA which was the 120 day reminder to file Roc?
  13. I have big issue. I filed the I-751 3-4 month ago and received a rejection due to an issue with a bank after which I received the I-797 Extension Letter stating that the green card was extended. The deadline was last September. I-797 made me think that I have a year to re-submit the I-751 and dummy me that was a big mistake. I called the Immigration Office and spoke to the officer and learned that the case is closed. However, she claimed that it can be re-opened once I resubmit the I-751 with "good cause" explanation letter. Is this misunderstanding can be considered a good cause? Would I receive another extension later that will allow me to travel once it is approved even though I am re-submitting 3-4 month later? How long something like will usually take?
  14. Hi, I hope someone can help. I filed both i-912 and i 751 12/2/17, received in California, no signature USPS 12/5/17 . My green card expires 1/26/18 and I am getting anxious. I called the USCIS help line and have spoken to 3 separate officers, all told me 'not to worry' as i - 912 fee waivers, take some time processing and that I could email support because they didn't see anything on their online system. I emailed on 1/10/18 and got a reply 1/12/18 stating that I should allow 45 days for them to process this. Friday 1/19/18 will be 45 days. I want to know if anyone has done both the fee waiver and 751 together and what their time line was in the California center. I dont know if I should just resubmit ( my fear is that someone has lost my paperwork) Also, I just got my insurance license and it will expire when my greencard does, any advice?
  15. Quick update to note that all conditions have been removed post divorce. In this case, I took the advice of other forum members and submitted a lot of documentation and evidence stating the facts up front. Processing time was over 1 year and I kept having to get i-551 stamps in the interim. Once I got to the interview, i prepared all my documentation and some more and sat in for the interview with my attorney. To my surprise, they had not reviewed my file in detail and after 10 minutes of cursory discussions to validate facts about my case the agent seemed satisfied and told me they would reach out if need be. I insisted that she contact me directly should she need anything and happy to see 1.5 months later my case status adjusted accordingly. New GC has arrived with 10 yr expiration. Let me know if there are questions.
  16. Hello, My husband is a conditional resident and his green card expires in January of next year. He was unable to be placed on the mortgage due to his low credit score. I am worried that we will not have enough proof to our living situation. His license is the same address and he is on the home owners insurance. Is there anything else that can be sent in other than utility bills? thank you!!
