  1. Is anyone traveling to see their partner during COVID? My fiance lives in Ecuador and I do have a ticket to see him this September. What are some thoughts on traveling during covid? Has anyone been traveling? Will they be traveling anytime this year?
  2. Hello, I am a US citizen trying to file for a marriage-based green card with my (non-US citizen) spouse who currently is residing within the USA. We have no dependents. We have completed the "full I-130 package", and the "full I-485 package" EXCEPT for one single item: my IRS tax transcripts required for the hellish I-944 supporting document requirements (a subset of the I-485 package). My spouse successfully used the online IRS website to instantly get her tax transcripts. However, this website has so far been a dead end for me. The reason? In order for the IRS to verify my identity and order the transcripts instantly through their online website, I must to provide one of the following identifiers: The last 8 digits of one of my credit cards (which is NOT an American Express card) A student loan account number An auto loan account number A mortgage or home equity loan account number A home equity line of credit account number The problem? I do not have ANY of these. I have never taken out a loan or mortgage at any point in my life, and my one credit card that I've used all my life is an Amex, which they do not recognize for some reason. So it looks like the instant IRS transcript access is off the table, what other options are present? I can fill out and mail Form 4506-T to an IRS office and have them mail me back the forms in 3-5 weeks, which is a painfully long delay for my entire green card application process. EXCEPT, according to the IRS helpline, the IRS offices which process these are closed due to COVID-19, so even if I send it, who knows how incredibly long it will take to get back to me. I filled out an application and mailed it last week, but don't expect to see anything come from it anytime soon, especially with how there has been a recent uptick in COVID-19. I can call the IRS Transcript Order phone line [800-908-9946] and place an order over the phone for my IRS tax transcripts, which would then take 7-10 days to be mailed to me (an annoying, but tolerable delay in my application) EXCEPT, if anyone calls this number, you'll see that it does not work! Presumably due to COVID-19, the phone order system is just unusable -- and, again, who knows how long it will remain that way?? Currently I have included my last 3 years of 1040 tax return forms, in my I-485 application as a sort of substitute for the tax transcripts even though I know that the transcripts are what they are asking for. I do know that this is not what they want in the application. ****************************** I really, really want to get this application submitted as soon as possible as my spouse and I really need her to obtain employment authorization + ability to travel back to her home country as soon as possible. So, here are my main questions: Is anyone else stuck in a similar situation? How are you handling it? Could I ... (1) mail in my I-130 package by itself, and then mail in my I-485 package later once I get my transcripts? (2) mail in BOTH my I-130 and I-485 packages with an explanation in my cover letters stating my current situation and stating that I will mail them my IRS tax transcripts as soon as it is possible for me to actually do so? Side Question: Is online I-130/I-485 package filing a thing? Is it smarter to file online given all the COVID business? It would save me some $$$ for shipping since the I-944 supporting documents make the application into a huge pile of papers... In the hopes of being able to get my transcripts online, I ordered a new VISA credit card from my bank which arrived today. I activated it and used it to purchase one thing, but when I tried to use it to get through the IRS website it (unsurprisingly) did not work. Does anyone know roughly how long it might take the IRS to "recognize" a new credit card? Thank you so much for any help or feedback, --Zach
  3. I have received an RFE for my Venezuelan Fiance to prove that she is divorced from her ex per commond law statute. The recept date is 4/17/200 and the due date is 7/13/2020. She sent me official documents in Spanish and I had them translated by a certified translation service. Her documents clearly show that she is within the common law statues of her state to be considered divorced. My question is, since everything is closed in Venezuela, including the office that appostilles, should I send copies of the original documents and the translations to the USCIS, with an explanation that because of COVID, we could not get the documents appostilled? Or should I wait until the offices open? I don't think the latter is an option. thank you for any and all comments
  4. Hi guys, I completed my interview and my passport pick up date was in March (I got a yellow slip) . However, the day before my pick up- the embassy announced that they are closing for COVID. The country has opened officially from last week but the US embassy remains closed. I have emailed them regarding this and they reply with an automated email. Any idea how i could reach them? and when the embassy might open? My husband and I miss each other so much and it has been so long I wish i could see him soon.
  5. Does anyone know how many you can apply for? I know it says you can apply for a secondary one. But can you apply for a third if needed? I can’t find any sources. This is just for emergency situations thank you.
