  1. Hello everyone, I need your advice. Thank you for taking your time in reading my post! So my younger brother has an expired greencard, he is scared to get it re-new because he has a felony and is afraid of getting deported & getting the application rejected. Here is another curveball both of our parents became America citizens before we were 18, but didn’t bring us along with their citizenship, Who are both divorce at the time of citizenship. Can he still renew his greencard & still have the process go through?? Many thanks for taking your time writing your advice!
  2. Hi everyone, we can apply for my N-400 in late September/Early October, our I-751 has been pending since October. We will file at our local office in SLC, UT. Has anyone seen the timelines shifting for N-400 at all? I am BEYOND homesick and really need to go home to Australia for a year or so once we get my dual citizenship. I am seeing 13-18 months from filing on the current tracker. Obviously this is SUCH a first world problem, but it would be so great to see everyone's experiences of late with their citizenship timelines, so I can have a 'home time' date to look forward to. Thanks in advance for sharing your experiences!

  4. So, I am currently in the F2b category - my father is my sponsor and he is a green card holder. I have been DQ'd and am in queue to interview at the Montreal consulate. Since they're so backed up right now, I won't be getting one anytime soon I think. My father will be a U.S. citizen soon - he got his biometrics done yesterday on Feb 24, 2021. He now awaits his interview and oath ceremony. As soon as this is done, should I apply to transfer to the F1 category? Will it be quicker?
  5. How to find out whether our priority date is current or not. Please help me to clarify it.
  6. Is it true that you can not file for any immigrant for 10 years if you divorce a US citizen, who you were married to during naturalization (applied with 3 years rule)?

  8. Hi I moved/entered the US as an LPR when I was 17, a month before I turned 18 so still qualified under INA 320. But, we failed to get my passport immediately because my dad lost his naturalization cert. so we're waiting for 5-8 months to get another one and be able to apply for the passport again. I'm currently 18 and looking to open a bank account and I don't know what to put under the "Citizenship" in the forms, US or Philippines?
  9. Hello all just found this website while looking for some answers. I (US citizen) am to be married on November 14, 2020 to a foreign national who overstayed visa. I just read fees will be increasing on October 2nd. Should we legally get married in September and have the paperwork submitted to save on the money if yes, what forms & documents would we need to file. Thanks!
  10. Hello everyone. I applied for naturalization in MA, and still waiting for some information from USCIS. Can you share your COVID naturalization situation, please? My timeline: Boston, MA - January 2020 applied - February 2020 got biometrics And now is still waiting for interview. I hope everyone is healthy and safe! I know, that in some states waiting time a year or so, but in general in New England it took about 5 months before COVID.
  11. Hi, I finished filling out the N400 form, double checked it. Waited a day then checked it again before clicking finish. When I got the PDF certain parts such as contact information and previous residences were all filled with N/A which is completely wrong as I filled out those boxes. Is there anyway to fix this without having to pay the $200 again? I can only click download now. Thank you
  12. Hello, My situation is: I'm a US citizen, never employed, and I'm dependent on my parent. they have been maintaining me my whole life. So I never filed taxes in my whole life. and I do not make any type of income ! nor I have any assets. The Case: I got married and my wife is filing AOS. For the affidavit, I had a joint sponsor filing separate i864. For my i864 I believe I'm required to attach a letter stating why I never filed taxes. what should be the reason to write, since I want it to look formal. I had this sample but I think it might need to be edited To Whom It May Concern I, ABCD, XXX's spouse and petitioning sponsor. I did not file any income tax return yet because I was and still dependent and maintained by my parents upon their income. Since I never had job or made any income of any type, I was not required to file an income tax return with the Internal Revenue Service. I, ABCD, certify under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States that the information I have provided in this statement are true and correct. Sincerely, ABCD help please or edit the sample Thanks
  13. Hi everyone. It's been a long time. My wife is a naturalized citizen, came on a K1 visa with her 2 year old daughter. The daughter is 15 now, lived here all along. Is she a citizen too or is there more paperwork/applications we must file? TIA
  14. I am a US citizen with a foreign fiance who currently holds a valid B-2 visa. It appears through what I've read, including the USCIS' website, that once we are married, which will take place outside the US, we should be able to do an adjustment of status for her while on a visit to the US. The purpose of which, to secure her an IR1/CR1. My only concern is that I've found a couple info sources that state entry into the US on a B-2 visa with the intent of later petitioning for AOS would be visa fraud. This asserts the alleged fraud is due to the reason given to the customs official for entry was something related to tourism or temporary visit, and therefore with intention to exit the US before your stay allowance expires. The ultimate result would be that during the processing in route to an IR1/CR1 a USCIS official conducting an interview would discover this 'deception' and you would be liable for the consequences. 1. Is this actually a valid concern we are likely to encounter? 2. Would it be preferable to get legally married within the US (prior to foreign ceremony and legal marriage), and immediately file I-485, I-130, and I-131 (in order to travel a couple months later abroad for the ceremony)? Thanks for your advice in advance.
