  1. Which payment method in filing for AOS is better? And if you paid through Credit Card, whose name should we put on the first box that says Full Legal Name? My name or my husband's? My husband will pay for my AOS and we will use his credit card. I am the immigrant adjusting for status.
  2. Hello, My mother just got married with and american, she is brazilian and i am too. I was being covered by her application for my visa, because I was under 21. But by accident her boyfriend called the bank and canceled the check he had sent to USCIS, they canceled my case and returned all documents. Now I am 21 years old and I cannot be part of my mother's wedding case to get the greencard. What I wanted to know is if I can resend the same documents to the same case with a new check, and if there is a chance that they will accept. Thanks.
  3. Hi everyone! I hope you had a good day so far. I’m really worried because we sent our application December 2019 and we also got our NOA1 already. On the NOA1, it states to verify information to make sure everything is correct. And all the information on the NOA1 is correct. However, they haven’t cashed our check yet. And it’s been over a month since they received our application. We sent it at their Lockbox Facility in Texas. We’re just super worried. Any ideas what could possibly wrong? Or how long does it usually take? I appreciate it a lot. Have a great day!
  4. Hey friends! I'm curious, at what point of the process do I go for my police background check/ clearance? I am the beneficiary and I live in Canada. I heard a lot of mix up and controversy about which type of forms you need (there are two options for this in Canada?) Do any of you happen to know exactly which form you need? Can you go to any RCMP building or must you go to specific ones that are required by the embassy (like the medical)? Does my husband (the petitioner) need a police check? Thanks!
  5. I thought I'd start this forum for people stuck at USCIS because of a pending background check. Our NOA1 is 10/06/2016. Around the middle of April, I started calling USCIS customer service to talk to to a tier 2 about our case. I was told that a background check started on April 11, 2017 and that we are waiting on this before our case can move forward. I'm wondering how many other people also are waiting for the background check. I'm also looking to see if there are any common factors that we have that would trigger a longer background check. These are some of the other details of our case: -We're both divorced, but neither of us has applied for immigration benefits before. -My wife had been to the US on a J1 visa before, but she didn't have the two year limit. (she's from Japan). - She had interviewed for an E2 visa, but was denied during her interview at the Tokyo Embassy. She was denied because she wasn't able to answer some questions about the company's management. - She has never overstayed a visa.
  6. Hello Me and my spouse are about to file the i751 form, I'm the petitioner, she is the US Citizen Although I'm the petitioner on the i751 form and we are filing together, who should sign the check? We have a joint bank account and all of our finances are together. All checks are usually signed by her. The instructions on USCIS website led me to believe that I should be the one signing the check. Can she sign the check, even if I'm the applicant? I'm asking this because I have never filled a check, usually I leave this to her. All payments I ever do are made with the debit card linked to our account. The checks are printed in both our names, and the account is also in both our names. Thank you
  7. Hi, My husband is now living back in America and I am about to post off our I-130 petition. He has mailed me a check to cover the filing fee of $535, however I have just noticed the instructions say only cashiers checks are accepted, not personal ones. I have however looked at previous forum posts from others who say they've successfully paid via personal check so I'm confused as to whether my petition would get rejected or not. Has anyone paid with a personal check recently without any problems? The check is from Bank of America and made out to US Department of Homeland Security. Thanks
  8. Hi, I don't have personal check book but I want to track my application packet using cashier check. I can pay bank fee to get it on the same day and will be able to track when it is cashed vs money order that can not be tracked easily. Can you please share experience, if someone has used this method for J1 waiver fee payment or know anything about it? Or any other suggestion to get bank check in 1-2 day or other traceable method? Main purpose is to track sent application packet using check cashed method. Thanks!
