Hello, we have submitted the CR1 to the USCIS this Sunday on May 29th 2022. We only now noticed that we did not photograph the back of my birth certificate. Because of that I wanted to ask if this could be a reason for the CR1 to be denied for us or to be sent back? Is there any way to submit it now so we don't have to wait 2 months to be potentially denied? Thank you!
USCIS approved our case since January 20, 2021 and our case has been NVC but no further information. They only wrote an email stating that the consulate is Nigeria is not requesting case Giles yet I don't know if someone is facing the same issue here my fiancee is getting tired of this whole process.
Hi there! I hope I posted this in the right forum. What is the process like for a USC with a marijuana felony wishing to file for their alien spouse? I am hoping I can get some help from those of you whose USC spouses also had a drug felony and successfully filed their application. We have met online a few years ago (not a dating website) and last year we met in person a few times while I was in the US (quite a few times for the weekend, and we also went on vacation together for a couple weeks). We are meeting again soon and we are going over our options. We are not married, but we may get married this year. We have read about the immigration process and we believe that going the CR1 route is better given that he has a drug-related felony. What are your thoughts? We have decided that it is best for him job-wise if I move there (I live in the UK), however, we are aware that having a felony as a USC and filing for a potential immigrant means there will be greater scrutiny for many reasons. He was convicted of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver as a minor (age 17, spent no time in prison - had to pay a considerable fine, though). That, at the time, was a felony - not sure about it now, I doubt it matters what the law is now (for our case at least). He has no other problems, he is a rather responsible person now; that was 20 years ago. I have no criminal record, so there will be no issues on my part that would require a lawyer. In terms of what we are thinking of doing if we were to apply without a lawyer - obviously, we would provide evidence of a bona fide relationship, and we will get the official court documents once we get rolling so I can read it all. We can provide evidence that would support our case of him being a level-headed and law-abiding citizen (ie: contract of employment, college education, mortgage etc). Is there anything else that we should be aware of? We would be fine filling out the application form ourselves, but we evidently are not as knowledgeable as an immigration lawyer can be - should we get a lawyer to help with our case? In other words, is this a DYI situation or is the lawyer a MUST? Any advice is greatly appreciated as we feel slightly overwhelmed. Many thanks!
