  1. Hi guys, I have very strange N-400 and I-751 case status on USCIS.gov site. I filed my I-751 in December 2017 and filed my N-400 in December 2018. Last Saturday I went for my N-400 Interview/test, I passed the test, and they approved my N-400 application on next Monday. The status for my N-400 changed to below, Now, what interesting is that the status of my I-751 changed twice after my N-400 has been approved. First, it changed to "New card is being produced" (which is weird, why would they produce my green card while my N-400 has already been approved?). Second, the status changed to "Case transferred and new office has jurisdiction". Why are they transfering my I-751 case while the new green card is being produced? Should I be worried? I'm so confused with their case status tracking. Thanks in advance for your answers, BKKDEN
  2. Hello, My husband had an interview for his IR1 immigrant visa on October 31st 2019 in the U.S. embassy in Guatemalan. He was approved at the time of the interview. It has been 3 business days and CEAC still shows as ready and it does show case updated on November 4, 2019. But the status stayed on ready. Should I be worried?
  3. Hello everyone! I am extremelly happy to give you all the news that my expedite was approved. As I stated in other post this was a very rare chance of approval but here we are. I tried it and Im glad I made it. So this post might be able to help other venezuelans or anyone else who's looking to expedite but doesnt know how. Well first you need to know what the grounds for the expedite are: Severe financial loss to company or ​person, emergency situation, humanitarian reasons, nonprofit organization whose request is in furtherance of the cultural and social interests of the United States​, department of defense or ​n​ational ​i​nterest ​s​ituation, USCIS error or compelling interest of USCIS. In my case, I think the most accurate ground for Venezuela was Humanitarian crisis. Yes, I understand no one has declared it but that doesn't mean is not happening. ​ First thing I did was finding out how to start the expedite process and this is where the fun part begins! The email you want to contact the NVC to speet up your process is this: NVCExpedite@state.gov (yes, also take notes I requested the expedite two days after I got my NOA2, asking the NVC to expedite it as soon as they got it) Well next, this is how you start the email. Is important that you put in the first line of the email whats the grounds for expedite you're requesting this on. And of course, the expedite request must be from the petitioner, not the beneficiary. Example of me being the petitioner: Name of the person submitting the inquiry: ______________________ NVC case number or USCIS receipt number: _____________________ Petitioner's name: ___________________ Principal Applicant's name and date of birth: ____________________ I, Arelys Weimer, I'm formally requesting that the (whatever visa type is) be expedited on the grounds of (Humanitarian Crisis) as soon as it reaches you (in case that is not at the NVC yet). NOTE: If it's already at the NVC or at the USCIS, leave at "...reaches you". On the second paragraph you want to explain how you got to the conclusion that the expedite is neccesary and the grounds for it are correct. In my case, my husband explained how theres a serious lack of primery products here such as toilet paper and medicines. Added to this he explained that my country has the second highest crime rate in latinamerica and there has been rapings, murders, kidnappnings, people are breaking into houses, robberies everywhere. He explained how this has put a lot of stress in the marriage and how he can't even sleep knowing that Im here and I cant even be safe at my own home. On top of this he explained that theres airlines leaving the country and even if I get the visa I might not be able to find a plane ticket to leave. Of course, there's the upcoming elections and we don't know for certain whats going to happen. Maybe something, maybe nothing but he wasn't wiling to risk it. Once you've explained everything in your email, the next part is doing a bit of research. Add to your email all kinds of news covering what you just said in that email. News in english and spanish. You do wanna find the news that cover stuff close by where you live, thats what will be the most helpful tool for you. Note: if you dont know where to find english news about the country you're requesting the expedite on, I recommend you this portal: http://www.insightcrime.org/ You will find travel warnings in the Department of State's website http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/alertswarnings.html (Find your country on the list) Get the warning printed, scanned and attach it to this email as well. (They can't contradict you on something they know). Make sure you explain to them how serious the situation is. I tried this with little to non chances to getting it, and here I am. Do not be afraid to try. IMPORTANT: IS A FREE INQUIRY SO YOU DONT HAVE TO PAY TO GET IT EXPEDITED. ALSO, IT DOES NOT SLOW DOWN THE PROCESS IF IT GETS DENIED. So as you cna see, there's no downside of trying. If you think it meets the requirements, try it. The worst thing they can do is say NO and keep working on your paperwork on their ussual timeframe. NOTE: If you didn't get to pay the fees in the NVC because your case got expedited, don't worry. The embassy will let you pay the fees and submit the original documents the day of your interview. In your currency. Keep out for this post since I'm now in contact with the embassy, I will explain how the rest of the process goes from this point and on. God bless, and if you need any help with this; ask away. Doesnt matter if you feel its a silly question.
  4. My imterview was yesterday. I gave them my civil documents at 11 and then i had to return at 1pm for my real interview. The interview was super nice, officers were super friendly and nice. The interview didn't take so long as I was expected. The CO at window 4 was very nice and patient to me and I felt so comfortable answering the questions and I felt like im talking to a friend of mine while giving some details to the answers. CO said your visa is ok to be issued and it will be issued within 10 business days, but 5 hours after I arrived home, charged my dead phone, and checked my CEAC, its under AP that takes several weeks. My lawyer said its a routine AP. ( to me it sounds like everyone goes through this AP) I just want to know why the normal routinely AP and the ugly AP have the same names?! They should pick a nicer name for the routinely one!!😑 But once I realised my original civil documents are with the embassy too and they didnt hand them back to me, I said maybe this is the reason for AP to check if my original documents are real or fake since I'm a refugee in NL and they assume all refugees are expert in faking documents. Well I feel being labled as a regugee is complicating so many things to me by putting me in difficult situations😐. Just cant wait to return to the states and get treated as a normal residence as I used to be. Should I just not worry about this AP or should I keep worrying?! I'm confused between the 2 kinds of APs. Tryna forget about it and not worry. I was super happy when the consular said its going to be issued within 10 days but that AP at my CEAC is telling me girl calm down don't be too excited not yet we are still working on this. 😤 Any experience like this plz?! Why do some ppl never went through AP things? And why do the US embassy still have my Original Civil Documents?
  5. Approval Notice Valid from 8/23/2019 to 12/22/2019 Actual Received Date in Mail: 9/3/2019 Case Type: I129F - Petition for Fiance(e) Petitioner: Citizen from U.S. Beneficiary: Santiago, Chile Hello, My fiance and I have received our NOA2 (I-797), after 4 weeks he called NVC like the letter stated in case we didn't hear anything back. My fiance called the NVC to ask about the case number, but they said to wait 6 weeks instead in hope of some mail/email. After 6 weeks have passed he called once again and they still didn't have my receipt number on file. This time they told him to email nvcresearch@state.gov and the response time is for an undetermined amount of time. He sent the NVC Research team an email with my receipt number in the title and attached our NOA2 letter that we received from USCIS. My questions are as follows: -Should he receive an email reply from the NVC regarding his research team email just to indicate they have received it? -Can he contact the USCIS to send a copy of the approval to NVC if possible? -Is there a way to call the NVC Research team directly in regards to finding my case? -I’m worried about the approval valid time period I have left considering the research team could take months and we only have until 12/22/2019. Is this date a deadline to schedule an interview or to complete the interview? Best regards, Claudina R.
  6. Hi, I wanted to create this post for individuals who were recently (2019) approved and waiting for their case to be submitted to the National Visa Center (NVC). I was not sure if anyone is aware of this helpful link below. It provides you with the steps of for NVC and their processing time. Hopes this helps and I hope others will share their experience and helpful information. Thanks https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/the-immigrant-visa-process/after-petition-approved/begin-nat-visa-center.html
  7. So, my i-130 was approved about a week or so ago and we filed in May 2019. So, when I go on the USCIS website to fill out the Affidavit of Support forms in advance, it says they will not be accepted on or after October something. Does this mean we would have to meet those new requirements, if we do get our NVC Case number AFTER the new rule goes into affect?
  8. I just got approved the interview was super easy and smooth i felt nothing but comfortable it took me less than 3 minutes the CO didn’t even ask me for the evidence i was the one who said please take a look at those evidence, the first question was tell me about your relationship and from there i was saying everything didn’t even give her the chance to ask me cause i was telling her about everything how me met and when and our engagement party i was talking about everything and she gave me a pink small paper telling me you are good to go come in Wednesday ti pick your passport and your visa thank god! anyone needs help or any questions for my experience i can help contact me in Instagram just follow me and send me a text my IG is: Semehmefteh
  9. Have you had or heard of a case in which the processing time for an F3 I-130 to be FILED AND APPROVED IN UNDER 2 MONTHS ? That seems to be the case in our petition. The petition was filed on August 1996 (priority date) and was already at the NVC by October 1996 based on the NVC case number (MNL1996XXXXX). Could the process really be that quick? Asking this in regards to my CSPA eligibility. I need some significant amount of time to cut off from my age to qualify. Thanks
  10. I-130 just got approved after a 12 month wait at the Nebraska Service center. Just found out that the wait for a interview at the Juarez consular is 9 months. What possibilities that my wife could travel and wait here in the US on a approved I-130???
  11. Hi everyone please help me out with my issue, I was approved for permanent residence card and the card is undelivered since September 12 2017. I know it is a lot of text but I would highly appreciate if you would have time to follow the timeline below. Any recommendations would help, it is a really painful process. - 03/17/2017 I applied for i-485 adjustment of status (marriage based) at Chicago location. - 08/17/2017 Approved for Permanent Green Card at Chicago Location (right after the interview). RECEIVED APPROVAL LETTER I-797 SHORTLY - 08/22/2017 "We mailed your new card to the address you gave us." - HERE THE SITUATION GETS WRONG - The lawyer that was filling out our application moved to another address and he informed the USCIS about it but it seems like it was too late and USCIS sent the Green Card to his old address where it went undeliverable. - 08/29/2017 "your request to have your Permanent Resident Card resent to you, referral number SRxxxxxxCHI, was assigned to an officer for response." - 08/31/2017 "your request to have your Permanent Resident Card resent to you, referral number SRxxxxxxCHI, was completed." NEVER RECEIEVED ANY WRITTEN RESPONSE - 09/12/2017 "the Post Office returned your new card for Receipt Number MSCxxxxxx, to us as undeliverable." that is on the main screen right now - 09/13/2017 FIRST INFOPASS appointment - the person at the counter told me that I should reapply for the green card and pay the fee one more time - she was pretty rude and did not even opened my case - she just told me that she would change the lawyer right away if she would be in my shoes. - 10/02/2017 "your request to change your address, referral number CAxxxxxxMSC, was assigned to an officer for response." - 10/05/2017 "your request to change your address, referral number CAxxxxxxMSC, was completed." - 10/19/2017 "your request to have your Permanent Resident Card resent to you, referral number SRxxxxxxCHI, was assigned to an officer for response." SECOND SERVICE REQUEST - DID NOT RECEIVED ANY RESPONSE. - 11/14/2017 "your request to have your Permanent Resident Card resent to you, referral number T1DxxxxxxxCHI, was assigned to an officer for response." THIRD SERVICE REQUEST - 11/17/2017 "your request to have your Permanent Resident Card resent to you, referral number T1DxxxxxxxCHI, was completed. - THIS IS THE LAST UPDATE ON USCIS WEBSITE RIGHT NOW. They sent a letter, quoting "YOUR CARD WILL BE SENT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE" and nothing more! At this stage my lawyer tells me that there are too many service requests and that's why the process is messed up, so he told me that we should not get any more service requests for the next 60 days. -12/28/2017 SECOND INFOPASS appointment where the representative had the opportunity to call the benefits center and they told him that they will send the card soon - Luckily he put a stamp in my passport which expires in 3 months that states that I am approved for Permanent Card and I am waiting to get it resent from benefits center. Status at this moment: The lawyer is not contacting me with any updates, 60 days passed since the last response from USCIS and I really don't know what to do next. I read some threads and people are usually contacting the Congressman in this kind of situation or others fill in a Ombudsman request on USCIS, I am really worried about contacting USCIS one more time because I assume that it can slow down the process of sending the card back. Please help me out, I really don't know what to do and living with this situation it really affects my day to day life. In case you need any additional information please let me know. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND CONSIDERATION - ANY IDEAS OR RECOMMENDATIONS HELPS! P.S. YES, I have my name on my mailbox.
  12. Whyyyyyyyyyyyy is Morocco so slow when it comes to issuing visas?? My husband's interview was 2 weeks ago and we're STILL waiting. It finally issued last week but now with Eid coming up this week I just feel like they're using that and Ramadan as an excuse to move at snail's pace, even Aramex is closing for 2 days this week for Eid.. We spoke to a few other people who got approved there and their visas haven't made it to Aramex yet either. Does anyone know if the consulate makes bulk shipments of passports w/ visas to Aramex like once a week or something? This whole process just took so long and I'm ready for it to be over already and have my husband here. It's like we're so close to the end yet still so far.
  13. So my (beneficary) fiance and I arrived at our new home two days ago. The anxiety and fear of the interview is over. The wait for approval and papers is postponed until the next steps after the wedding. I go back to work, and now she... Is thousands of miles away from everything familiar to her. Her family, friends, and everything she's ever known. Everything here is foreign to her. She's excited for the future, but also sad for what she's left behind. Who out there knows the mixture of emotions, hope and fear, happiness and sadness? Who in the world could she share these feelings with that could relate or understand? How weird is it that there is no one to pump your gas or check your oil? Where are the car guards? Why aren't there bars on the windows? I'm being extra and dramatic, I know. But there are so many great people I've chatted with here. I think it would be great to start a What'sApp group for those who have come to the states on a K1 visa from South Africa. If the only shared experience is coming to the states from South Africa on a K1 visa, then that's a pretty big thing that is the basis for support, ideas, recipes, shopping, tips, recommendations, or just witty banter that only South Africans can understand. In fact, I don't need to be part of it. I just think it could be good for my fiance and good for others who have went through this life altering process. Anyone?
  14. Hi. I'm not sure if anyone knows the answer to this. I was recently approved for a K1 in Montreal. I live close to Buffalo - where I will be moving. Am I allowed to cross the border before I technically "declare" myself at the border? I've heard mixed things.
  15. Hello everyone. My fiancé had his interview today and we had a document missing (his police check). We told the window person it was currently on its way in the mail, but the interviewer never brought it up or asked about it. We were approved, given a pink slip and a white sheet (explains how to send stuff into them) and she said he was approved and he’ll receive his visa in about 2 weeks, but nothing else from that. I was curious if I could see what other approved people received as their white sheet along with their pink sheet. We obviously know about the pink sheet, but nobody talks about their white sheet, they just say they received one with the pink. Just want to know if we received the same white one as others or if it’s different,TIA.
  16. WHAT A GREAT DAY! I just wanted everyone to know my fiance had his interview today at the U.S. Embassy in Accra, Ghana, and by the grace of God he was approved! Soon he will come to America for us to be married! I must thank the U.S. Embassy in Ghana for their kindness to him and their approval, and also all the great people on Visajourney who helped me navigate this process smoothly. If not for the generosity of those on here and those who make videos like the ones on YouTube I'm not sure we would have been able to be successful. I wish all of you awaiting your loved one's approval the best of luck and encourage you to stay vigilant and positive that your day will arrive too. I first mailed off my I-294 application on 06-15-2017, so from mailing to approval it's been about 11 months. I am here to help in any way I can as always. Wallace
  17. Got my K-1 approved the other day and leaving for the USA in a few weeks. Very excited for this new chapter in life and just wanted to come say thanks to everyone on this forum who helped answer all the dumb nervous questions I had on every little thing, even the ones who were jerks to me 😂 Let's be honest, there are quite a few know-it-alls on this forum but most people are really helpful and empathetic so thanks for all the advice/info. Also, I have a YouTube channel as a hobby and I made a short video on the K-1 process to hopefully help other people thinking about this route. Feel free to check it out/share it with other K-1 applicants (and no doubt leave me tons of snarky comments about how I got all the facts wrong! 😀):
  18. Hello everybody, i'm desperate right now and i need your help ! Im a senegalese living in Morocco. Me and my wife (US citizen) have been married on Jan,30th 2017. we applied for the i130 in april 2017. Everything went good so far, the USCIS approved the petition on november 2017. We applied for the next step on may 2018 and NVC approved the case on June 2018. The interview at the US consulate of casablanca has been scheduled on July 31st. I have been interviewed and i had all the documents they needed , i had answered to all the questions. The C.O. had some doubts about the relationship because my wife's last name was Ndiaye like me (her mom has senegalese origin) but we are not relatives. It's like asking if all the johnson in the U.S. are relatives, there are at least 2 millions "ndiaye" in 14millions of senegalese citizens. But i told the C.O. to check at the consulate to be sure that everything is genuine. On August 7th they called me back and the C.O. said that everything is ok ,. The C.O. said the visa is now approved and by 3 weeks i would get my passport back with the visa at the aramex office. Since that day !!! NO MORE NEWS !!! i have been writting email , many many emails but no answers My wife did the same , no answers The immigrant visa unit never pickup the phone. My job requires me to travel and with my passport blocked, i wasn't able to , i have been liying to my boss or simulate being sick to avoid missions abroad until i lost my job !!! IM UNEMPLOYED RIGHT NOW !! This is not fair, at least it is my right to get my passport and use it until they finish their job. I have no way to join them or talk to someone who can get things done. I just want my passport back. I have sent them emails regarding that point but same return : generic email saying that the consulate received my mail but no answers !!! If someone can't help or give advice i would be very thankful Best regards
  19. Finally we were approved yesterday - this whole process has taken almost a year. Now we await the Visa in the mail ! Hopefully it will not be long. We have not seen each other since January and cannot wait to finally be together again - for good ! Good luck to everyone else ! It has been such a difficult process.
  20. Hi everyone. On Jan. 8th I had my interview at the US Consulate in Naples. I was told that we provided all the needed documents and that our case was approved 😍 The Consul said to expect my passport in the mail in few days. CEAC showed Application Received on the same day of the interview and the header changed to Non Immigrant. Startin from the day after the interview (Jan. 9th) CEAC shows ADMIN PROCESSING and it’s never been updated since then. Anyone has any idea on why my visa hasn’t been issued yet? Previous experiences with the Consulate in Italy show that it shouldn’t take more than 3 days to get the passport in the mail. I’m a little upset, I really thought I would have spent this weekend with my fiancé but no, I’m still stuck here in Italy 😢
  21. Hello, my fiance called today to NVC and they give her a case number. The lady explain that they sent the package to the embasy in Madrid, Spain, and we need to wait for a package to follow the instructions. I am not sure what is the next step, do I need to apply for the visa? or call the embassy in MADRID? I will appreciate any advice. Thank you, Oscar
  22. Background I am Canadian. My husband is American. My interview appointment was on Dec 18, 2018 at 8am. Before arriving, I made a binder with plastic sleeves and tabs of what is included in the pre-interview checklist. This was not as necessary for the officer as much it just helped me stay organized. My husband took me to Montreal and we drove up and made a trip out of it. I recommend driving up to the embassy the day before the interview to see where to park the day of and where to stand. The Appointment Day My appointment was at 8 am. We arrived at 7:04 am. We parked in parked in lot across building for $15/day early bird price. After 8am it is $18 for the whole day. It was hard to find parking if you have an appointment before 9:30 am because the streets need to be cleared from 8am-9:30am for city cleaning. One family arrived right when we did. Stood in line till 7:45 am. VJ bloggers said to stand on the side with the yellow columns but that didn't matter because the building security guard asked us to line up across the right side of the building. Once we were allowed in we were asked to go to the back of the line since we didn't have a 7:30am appmt and they wanted to prioritize the early ones. So we told everyone in line, if you have a 7:30am appmt move up. And then everyone was kind enough to let us stand in front of the 8am group since we were there early. When we went in, there was a lady who greeted us and asked us for our appointment time and our passports. She handed us a laminated document that indicated our call number and what we need to have ready for the officer. She asked out of the two who was the beneficiary and the petitioner. Then we went to security. The security guy asked us to place our items in the bin like at the airport. Did not have to take shoes off. You hand in ur phone and keys to the officer and get a ballot to pick it up when you leave the building. We went downstairs and waited like everyone else. Then an officer came and told us we r going up to floor 19 and when we arrive we will sit and wait for our number to be called. Our waiting began, it was 8am. When my number was called the lady just asked for all my documents to verify them and passport photos. Confirmed my Canadian address, phone number and then asked me the petitioners phone number and address. She took my finger prints. And then told me I am good to go and to sit and wait again and the officer will call my number for the interview. The lady officer called my number and I went up. She made me take an oath of honesty on the finger print scanner. She said you were born in Pakistan I said yes. Questions she asked me: How did you two meet? Who is the petitioner? What does your husband /petitioner do for work? Where does he live? How often do you get to see each other? What is your highest level of education? Have you ever been convicted of a crime? Does your husband cook or do you cook? (meant to be a trick question) Have you ever been denied entry to the US? How long have you ever stayed in the US? Have you ever stayed in the US longer than 6 months? Then all of a sudden she pulled out two sheets and said welcome to the US and that our immigration packet is now electronic so we don't take anything to the border. If you have travel plans and are worried about getting your passport back in time, do mention it to the officer. By 8:50 am, we were done. Side Notes: - Items I brought but; They did not even ask for the photocopies of the the original documents. They did not ask for a printed interview appointment letter. They did not ask for CEAC print outs. They did not ask to see petitioners photocopy. They DID ask to photocopy his W-2. They did not ask to see relationship evidence.
  23. I got approved at the NOA2 stage for my K-1 visa on November 8th. I was under the impression a letter from the US embassy here in the UK should be dropping through my letter box a few weeks later but as of today (December 14th) nothing yet. Should I continue to wait or make a call/email to the NVC? Will the letter be accompanied by an email or similar (given that we filled out the G-1145 form for email/text confirmation at the same time as the I-129f) or will that be the only thing they send? I'm 100% sure we put my correct mailing address on the I-129f form but just wanted to be sure. Also, it feels like I'm sitting twiddling my thumbs while waiting for this - can I be doing anything else in the meantime? I've already submitted my DS-160, as well as got my ACRO police cert/immunisations for my medical, and my fiancé has filled in her affidavit of support form too, but is there anything else I can be doing to prepare while we wait for this case number or does everything from here onwards require that case number to be generated?? And finally - what's the average wait time from now (NOA2 about a month ago) to getting my K-1 visa? Could I be starting to plan moving out to the US from like end of January or around then??
  24. Me and my wife just got home from our interview with immigration services for her green card at the Louisville Kentucky branch. I wanted to document our experience and hopefully help out others whose interviews are upcoming. We arrived to our 1030 appointment at 1000, wearing business casual attire. I (petitioner) was asked to give my license and my wife (beneficiary) was asked for her passport (U.K.) and had to take a picture along with a finger print. They kept our IDs and told us we would get them back during our interview. We were not called back until 1100. The officer swore us in and had us sit in front of his where we were informed that we would be recorded and he pointed out the little Webcam on his desk (we had to scoot back a bit). He went through the paperwork, asking my wife our address and the list of yes no questions from the AOS form. The officer lightened up the mood when he asked her if she ever caused intentional harm to someone, adding on, "and minecraft doesn't count" with a laugh. So he knew from our file how we met, playing minecraft. He also asked my date of birth and where I was from before asking my wife when we got married. After confirming the info on the AOS and having her sign it, he asked her for proof of residency at my address. We gave him all the bills in our shared name from our evidence folder (it was a very full folder). After that he asked how did we meet, joking again, "Well I know you know that I know, but how did you two meet?" We explained how we met on minecraft briefly and how we visited back and fourth up until I proposed. When that was done we were expecting questions about our relationship or requests to see proof. We had brought a lot off stuff for that, but he didn't ask for any of that! No photos, no statements, no questions about me, no questions about our lives. Didn't look at our marriage certificate or paperwork copies. Nothing more. He said, "Well you(wife) already had the interview for the K1, I'm going to go forward and approve you for a 2 year conditional green card since you haven't been married for two years." He told us that it use to take 3 months to get it, but recently it takes about 2 weeks to get to us in the mail. He told us to call the 1-800 number if we don't get it in a month. My wife asked about what name would be one the green card. Our marriage certificate has her maiden name but all the paperwork was done with her married name. He told us not to worry and that since the paperwork is all in her married name, that's how the green card will be addressed. Here is my heart rate during the waiting period then drop off after the interview with getting approved!
  25. Hi guys! I’m so worried! I had my interview on Nov 06 and I was approved, no pending documents. After it my CEAC status was Administrative Processing, then on the 08 became Ready, on the 09 it had another update to Ready and since that never changed again 😭 Everybody is getting their passport back and I'm stuck. It that meantime we had 2 holidays in my country and 2 in America. I'm from Brazil not a travel ban country so what is going on? Even with the holidays people are receiving their passport. Anyone went through similar case? Please, help me!
