  1. URGENT HELP NEEDED! Hi, My step-sister is living in the US with her family for the last 6 years. My concern is I want to go to the US, that's why my step-sister is planning to get me to the US also. We believe that the fastest way for me to get there is through my loving mother. I want to be there also with my mother, my step sister already filed for a petition to my mother, who is currently waiting for the medical examination schedule. But I am turning 21 next year 09/2020. In your own opinion, do I still have a high probability that I will go in the US? We are willing to pay an legal help to get there. I also believe that there is an option for my case to be expedite. I am from the Philippines, answering my concern would help me a lot. Thank you and God bless us all!
  2. Hello! My fiancé and I have been together for 7 years and I have been going back and forth in the US but now I entered with a j1 visa. He finally proposed and we plan to get married before my contract ends with the help of a lawyer. Can we invite my parents to attend the wedding if my fiancé will write the letter since he's the citizen? What are the chances of them getting approved or denied? Thank you!
  3. Why is the processing time between a permanent resident and a citizen different? According to the official site, the time for a citizen is longer, it is not logical. 7.5 Months to 9.5 Months Permanent resident filing for a spouse or child under 21 August 24, 2018 10 Months to 13 Months U.S. citizen filing for a spouse, parent, or child under 21 May 12, 2018
  4. This case is complicated, I'll try to be as especific as I can: 1: fiancé of American citizen was approved in 2015. Daughter of fiancé was 16 years old. 2 : fiancé of American citizen traveled to US in 2015, daughter of fiancé remained in Colombia due to attending school, we had plans to bring her into the US before she turn 21 3: daughter of fiancé got pregnant and had a baby in 2018, we were told I was no longer able to apply for her visa. 4: 2018 daughter of fiancé ( now wife of American citizen) and boyfriend, including baby applied for tourist visa. 5: 2018, tourist visa was denied because according to consular officer, daughter of former fiance had a pending fiance visa case in 2015! Daughter of fiance was 15 (underage). Daughter of former fiance tried o explain that she was not the fiance but the mother instead. 6: was a mistake to apply for tourist visa for daughter instead of wife Appling for her? 7: is there any way to know what is going on?
  5. Hi everyone! so my husband had his interview at Islamabad embassy 4/9/19, interview went good wasn’t asked too many questions everything was pretty straight forward they wanted to see our pics, and asked how we talk and how often and kept his passport, medical, and passport sized pics. Told him at the end everything is looking good and gave him a paper to register for courier service they did say you will receive an email and that’s it, 24 hours later we received questionnaire email and filled out and sent back. Everyday from that point our case update date changed daily and I emailed end of April and they had said we received your questionnaire and your case is in administrative processing which in a crucial part before issue visa, my case only updates when I send an inquiry and I’m wanting to know others experiences and feedback! Anything will definitely help.
  6. Hi, so my American fiancee is going to receive a sum of money from her parents as a wedding-gift. She took some time off for school this year, so her income for this year could be a little below the AoS income-requirement, & we might need to use assets, she already has her own savings which should cover 3x the income-shortfall but still, we'd like to show as much money in her account as possible just to be on the safe side, so when would be the best time for her parents to gift her the money? The legal marriage will take place next month in June & going by the stats on Visajourney, it looks like it would take 8-9 months for the AoS interview, so by that time, the money will not have been in her account for 12 months as recommended by many people on these forums, which is why I'm asking this question because we don't want USCIS to think that it's a loan or something, which it isn't. So, what can we do from our side, for USCIS to recognize that money as truly belonging to her & applicable towards any income-shortfall?
  7. My son have American citizenship should be present in interview ?? and could that help for intrview to approved even somthing wrong in certificates medical??
  8. Hey everyone, I need to know what happens after your PD becomes current? My Pd is june’17. So it’s almost here!!! Plus, does everyone gets RFE? I mean we only submitted our marriage certificate and stuff at the time of filing. What kind of people being asked for RFE lol. Plus I’m thinking to get our chats and stuff printed, but we have been together since 5 years and I think I don’t have a full record. My chats with my husband got deleted from my messenger long ago. I may have a chats from past 4-3 years? What can I do? And should I print all the messages we did by now? They’re too much. I mean way TOO MUCH! Who’d read them out lol. Please answer me what to do with these messages. I wish I could get a full record :,( Also we got married in January 2017.
  9. Hi Everyone! I AM FINISHED!! I would like to share my entire process for the Philly FO since I barely saw any here when I first started. I attached my timeline taken from USCIS.gov but I also have a few pointers and a little more detail that it doesn't show. I filed by mail (because I didn't know you could do it online at the time). My GC had expired about 3 months before I started the application. I sought advice from some online lawyers about whether I should have my GC renewed since I already started the citizenship process & they all said yes. SO, June 20, 2018, I applied for a GC and the lady automatically put in a 1-year extension when I went for my 2nd set of fingerprints (1st set of prints was for n400 in March). My N400 interview was originally scheduled for October but for some reason, they canceled it and automatically rescheduled me for November. I went for my interview on November 20th. Now, this is IMPORTANT! this is a different location then the fingerprints you go through security like you're at an airport (take off shoes, jackets, belts, etc.) check in at the desk so they can put in the system that you are present. The staff will tell you which door you'll need to go to The interview is on the second floor and there are 3 doors. Sit as CLOSE AS POSSIBLE TO YOUR DOOR or you will NOT hear them call your name! (a lot of people talking!) Someone comes out of the door you are assigned to and calls out (apparently I was called 3 separate times but I sat too far and couldn't hear). Fingerprinted again, another photo, and then the staff goes through your application to make sure everything is correct and there are no changes. Finally, the test begins: civic first, reading, then writing. Passed! YAY! Given paper stating, I passed and left.😁 Literally hours later I received a notification online that my oath Ceremony is scheduled to be in 10 days! Got my letter by mail. you have to fill out the back with the date of the ceremony. Ceremony Time!!! (52 people, 33 countries) 😎 Same building as interview except now you're on the first floor The staff hosting it was very friendly and funny Line up row by row to surrender your GC (FOREVER!), verify name spelling and birth date on the certificate (but you don't get it yet!) Watch a couple of videos, sing the national anthem, say the oath, and voila! you're officially sworn in! Row by row we stand and wait for our names to be called to receive our certificates (Like graduation). Watch about 2 more videos and THE END! 💃 You get to register to vote right there also and it takes less than 1 minute to complete. Still, haven't heard anything about my GC but it's useless now! TOTAL TIME: 9 Months
  10. What is the next step after NVC receives petition? I called and they received my I-130 on 11/2/18 And how long does it usually take for them to send your packet in the mail? Also, does anyone have an experience with Islamabad consulate and how long they usually take with their process once NVC sends everything over to them?
  11. Hello, I have a serious question -- that I am currently struggling with: Currently, I am a 28 yo male, naturalized Citizen, living in the USA. My biological mother currently lives in Venezuela. I was adopted as an adult, however, at the age of 26 for reasons that are not important for this post. My question is whether I can petition for my biological mother despite the fact that I was legally adopted. Any feedback is appreciated. This is really weighing heavy on my mind.
  12. Hi, hope you are all good. I called NVC and they received my case on 24th of September. People have said to call them once or twice a week, has anyone had any success with that? Does that actually expedite it or am I wasting my time? Should I just wait or call them once or twice a week until i get a case number? Us citizen mom filing for minor under 21 IR2 Visa I've noticed some people are rude on here so if you're going to be rude then do not comment. Thank you for those who are taking their time to answer my question, I appreciate your time. Have a nice day!
  13. Hello everyone, I'm planning on filing my parent's I-130's soon. My parents have overstayed their visas 1+ years before. They're last entry was in June 2009 and exit on July 2009. Before that, they entered in 2002 and stayed in the US until October 2007. Since I'm filing soon, I'm hoping their I130's will not be approved before July 2019 (10 years from their last entry). My parents have not attempted to return to the US since then and have not renewed their visas. Has anyone had a similar case? What are my chances of being able to bring them to the States?
  14. A friend of mine has been living here in US as a tourist, her tourist visa expired a fe months ago, now she is married to an American citizen. What kind of paperwork does she have to fill out to apply for legal status?
