  1. Hello all I-130 filers, Lets put our I-130 timelines for California Service Center Filers.
  2. Hi, I will be filing N-400 in mid-July using the 3 year rule of being married to U.S. citizen while being a permanent resident. I still have pending the removal of conditions (I-751) but since it may take a while I will go ahead to start gathering documents and apply. Please feel free to start the discussion of what documents to gather, tips, etc. Thanks!
  3. Please people, am a USC resident in South Dakota filed I-130 for my brother. South Dakota is supposed to be covered by Nebraska Service Center but my petition was sent to California Service Center. After initial submission, California Service Center sent me Notice of Action and the receipt for my petition, and from the research i made, California Service Center takes over 90 months to process I-130 while Nebraska takes between 12 and 15 months to process. What can I do to have my petition transferred to Nebraska Service Center which has jurisdiction over my State of residence? Will appreciate your help
  4. Hey all, I thought I'd introduce myself to Vietnam forum members here. I live and work in NYC on LPR and will become eligible to apply for naturalization in 2 months 👊. I met my wife and got married last year in Vietnam. It took like forever to get the I-130 application filed (long story short... went through two awful lawyers in succession, 1 in NYC and 1 in Ho Chi Minh, before I took matters into my own hands.). It took a long time obtain evidence of joint finances as we didn't have any joint ownership of property or live together (I work in NYC and she lives in Ho Chi Minh.. also she is not working as we decided it does not make sense for her to work in Ho Chi Minh for next to nothing as I make more than enough for both of us and enough to convince to the USCIS/NVC/Consulate that she will not become a public charge. Finally managed to open a joint account in NYC with HSBC through HSBC Advance International Banking Center and filed a joint tax return in US for 2018 (getting an ITIN for that also was not easy as most CPAs were unable to do so when my wife is not in US). Anyways, we finally submitted our I-130 in August 2019. We have been visiting each other every 4 months or so, both in Vietnam and other countries in Asia (China, South Korea, Japan). From my research, it seems like it will be an exercise in futility for her to apply for a US tourist visa to come and stay with me for a month or so as it will be hard for her to show ties to Vietnam (no property ownership and no employment). So next step while waiting for I-130 approval is to see what I can do to get her tourist visas to Schengen countries or perhaps Canada. If she can visit Toronto, then I can easily work from remote location in Toronto for my NYC gig and stay with her. Or perhaps, ask my employer to see if they would allow me to work remotely from somewhere in asia for a month or so every so often. I'd love to hear from other folks in this forum. DT
  5. Hello Everyone, Why CSC doesn't show " U.S. citizen filing for a spouse, parent, or child under 21 " column under USCIS case check processing time ??
  6. Hello, I have been trying to figure out the answer to my question, but unfortunately haven't had any success via google. :/ I am about to file my CR1 package and am wondering about processing centers. I know that I initially send my petition to the lockbox, but am not sure how the processing center is chosen after that. I have seen that there are different processing centers with varying amounts of time. I would be filing from Portland, OR, I am wondering if I can choose a processing center, or will it just be the closest processing center to my location. I.E. California looks like it takes the longest so I'd like to avoid that processing center. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you
  7. Anyone please let me know what is the current approval date for I-130 F2A in California Service center.. Thanks in Advance......
  8. Hello everyone! It seems like there isn't a May 2018 I-130 thread for U.S. Citizens applying for parents through consular processing. I will be sending mom's application 5/24/18, right after I leave my Naturalization Ceremony everything is ready to go, just waiting on that certificate! From what I have been reading from last year threads, the whole process is taking around a year, give or take. I-130 approval seems to be around 6-8 months (it can be more or less, of course). Please share your input! Hope to talk to you all soon! Good luck to all of us!
  9. Hey, if your sibling is being jailed and not proven guilty until now. Can you get your visa? My case is filed under f2A but I want to know if they could deny my visa cuz of my brothers criminal record? I’ve nothing to do about this case! But I’m worried if it could affect my process. Please let me know.
  10. I have sent my I751 on September 8th to the California service center and it was delivered on September 10th. Its been 3 weeks since than, neither the cash was checked nor did I receive a receipt. My Green card expires in 4 days, I have already scheduled for an infopass appt on the 11th of this month. Is there anyone who is also facing similar delays? Also I checked that eversince I sent my application, the address has changed from Cali to TX. And they updated the address on the same day as my package was delivered. Can someone please advice me what to do? Should I refile and send to the new address?
  11. Our NOA1 is November 14, 2017 We had a RFE, sent the document needed, got approved and the case was sent to NVC, NVC issued us a number, however two days later the case was sent back to USCIS. The website states The department of stste sent it back to USCIS for further review. I never had any mail from embassy, our lawyaer has even contacted the embassy and they said they have not received our case. And now we receive such a letter. What can I do? Any advice?
  12. My USC wife and I got married in good faith (arranged marriage) in Jan 2015 and I received my conditional GC in Jan 2016. I moved to the US on a student visa in 2010 and was on a work visa (H1B) when i got married. We jointly filed my i751 petition in nov 2017 to CSC. When i submitted the joint i751 i had included joint mortgage contracts, financial statements (credit and savings account), photos from marriage in US and India, vacations, family visits etc., air tickets, joint phone bills, joint car insurance, affidavits from friends and neighbors, my insurance showing her name as beneficiary, joint tax filing documents. We have been having issues since the last few months and have been going for counseling to see whether we can work it out. However, my wife let me know today that she'll be moving out next week back home (different state) and filing divorce right after that. Even after the counseling sessions, we couldn't reconcile our issues. The processing times at CSC is taking 18-20 months and my application was filed a little over 8 months ago. The last update I received was in May notifying biometric appointment is not required since they have past records and haven't seen any movement on my case since then. I'm not sure what the next steps are - some forums say no action is required until divorce is finalized, however others say to notify USCIS about the situation. In addition to evidences I had provided already I can also provide report from the counselor, 2017 joint tax, photos and itineraries from trips made in 2018, bank statements until next week etc. Any help will be highly appreciated. Also, is there a forum for i751 divorce waivers for 2017/2018 I can follow?
