  1. So, I can’t find a thread on this. If one already exists, please let me know! I am a Canadian citizen and my boyfriend is American. We filed for K1 visa a few months ago on our own. We are waiting for NOA2. Today, I called « VisaPlace » to get some information about if I can spend more than 182 days in the states in a calendar year as a visitor. WELL, I got a lot more information from the lawyer, he basically told me I wasted my time applying for a K1 As Canadians don’t have to apply for K1 before getting married, it’s for countries that can’t enter the states without a visa. and that I could retain their services, they would void the K1 application and go directly to I-130. IM SO CONFUSED. Everything I read contradicted what the lawyer was telling me. I don’t know what to do. Should I continue on with the K1 process or pay $5k+ and retain immigration lawyer services so that they do the application for me and go straight to I-130? Anyone can help?
  2. Hello, Does anyone have any information regarding the process required for a Canadian Dental Hygienist wanting to relocate to California? I’ve been working as a dental hygienist for 14 years and graduated with a Bachelor of Science - Specialization in Dental Hygiene from a University. Any tips or suggestions, please!
  3. I’m trying to file the i130 for my Canadian husband. It’s asking for the beneficiary code from his permanent residence card. We currently live in Vietnam. When we visit the US he’s classified as B2. This is not a drop down option. He hasn’t been granted permanent residence status. That is why we are filing. What am I missing?
  4. I was wondering if anyone can help me. I am still considered a Canadian resident because I still have a leased car under my name. Hoping to get rid of it by this year. It’s been tough. It’s my first year filing taxes here in the US with my husband. How did my fellow Canadians file their taxes as a US permanent resident and Canadian Resident?
  5. Hi! My case has been in AP for about 63 days after sending out my documents for 221g. Today at 5pm when I checked ceac it changed to “Ready” Does anyone know how long it takes to change to “Issued”? If you have been through this, can I hear your experience?
  6. Hi I'm a little bit new here. Quick question My kids and I will be a permanent resident very soon. We are now living in the US. My wife live in Canada (she is Canadian). I want to minimize the time he will be separated from me and the kids. Of course she can cross the border and stay in the USA for 182 days every calendar year. I know we can do all the processes thought a Canadian consular. But can she do all the process while she is in the US ? Like the statement below she will enter legally without the requirement of any Visa. Page-2 https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/USCIS/Resources/A1en.pdf Can my relative wait in the United States until becoming a permanent resident? No. If your relative is outside the United States, filing an I-130 does not allow your relative to live or work in the United States. An I-130 petition only establishes your relationship with your relative. Your relative should wait outside the United States to immigrate legally. If your husband or wife, unmarried child under 21 years, or parent is already in the United States after having entered legally, they can apply to adjust their status to permanent resident at the same time you file their I-130 petition. If so how can she apply to adjust their status to permanent resident any additional form of the I130 and can we combine both document at the same thing when sending documents ? Thanks !
  7. It has been extremely hard to find answers to this as my partner's Canadian job involves work travel to and from the US. Me: Us citizen, live and work in us Fiancee: Canadian Citizen, works for Canadian airline that frequently works flights that go into US, UK, Europe. Commutes from both Canada and the US. Waiting marry or set intent to marry until we can determine best Visa process. Issue: We would like to live in the same place. For one thing long distance is rough, for the other we can save a lot. It isn't an issue currently for him to commute to work from the US to Canada to fly. However, if we begin the process for either fiancee or a spousal visa (obviosly would meet the marriage timing requirements of before vs after accordingly)- which of them is the best process to ensure he can continue travelling between the US and Canada and continue working out of Canada? The end goal is for him to have US citizenship and able to work/apply in the US, and minimize time being unable to commute from the US/visit the US. It seems to me he would have strong evidence for short visits to the US and ties to Canada due to his work flight schedule for a Canadian airline and having a Canadian address, Canadian bills, bank accounts, etc. Does the i-130 petition process force him to get a visitor Visa? or does the nature of his job preclude this? Does advance probation have anything to do with a situation like this if we go the K-1 route? Any help is appreciated.
  8. Hey there guys, I am new here and seen a lot of beneficial information shared on this forum so I am really hoping someone will be able to give me guidance on my current situation. We’ve received our packet four details via email from the US consulate last week directing me to schedule my interview and medical exam however, once I went online the website wouldn’t let me pay the fee nor would it allow me to schedule an appointment as it currently reads there is no appointments available and to check back in a few days. I’ve been checking multiple times throughout the last few days but still I couldn’t manage to schedule an appointment. Is anyone else facing a similar issue? How long will it take to schedule an interview at the embassy ?
  9. Hello, I recently moved to the US to be with my fiancé! I have all the letters from my car manufacturer and received my stamps from the border giving my car the "okay" to be brought into the united states. I was just wondering what I need to do first? get insurance? register? get my in-state license? I just don't know what step to take first in this process.
  10. I just want to double check: can my Canadian fiance visit me while our K-1 Visa is awaiting approval? We just received notice of the NOA1. Fingers crossed for your responses and advise. Cheers,
  11. My husband is Canadian and we just received his permanent green card in April. We would like for him to have dual citizenship & just want to make sure we plan appropriately as the years move forward. We had no issues during any of the K1 process without using an attorney. Looking for advice, similar stories, etc.
