  1. Our K1 visa was approved in December; my fiancé (now husband) moved here in March and we are now married. We are almost done with his adjustment of status application - we have an I797c (receipt notice from last year when I 29F was received), but not the I797 for the visa. We both believe he handed it over with the other paperwork at LAX Border/customs and was not given it back. 1. Has anyone experienced this? Were you able to get it back from the airport? Do they just trash it? 2. I understand the process to apply for a copy; is there any way to get around the huge fee? 3. Should we submit the adjustment of status anyway with an explanation of the above? Thanks for any and all help here!
  2. I entered the states on January 3rd and I got my green card in the mail by Jan 25! A lot faster than I was told at customs.
  3. Hello all, I have just received my IR1 visa stamped on my Canadian passport. I was planning to land as an immigrant at Buffalo/Niagara Falls POE this weekend before the visa expires and planning to head back to Toronto after that. Other than my passport and the sealed brown envelope, do I need to take anything else with me as well? Any customs forms that I can pre-fill and take with me? Appreciated folks!
  4. My wife is entering US for first time on CR1 visa, she will get Green card once she is in US. What should she write on customs declaration form for country of residence? Should it be India where she was born and where she has been living till now? or should it be USA where she intends to live from now on?
  5. I am a Canadian & was denied entry into the US; I signed a Withdrawal of Application for Admission - inadmissible under section 7A1 of the INA ~ how do I get back into the US now? They claim overstay & need proofs of ties to my country. What steps should I take? Do I need a waiver? Embassy? File something? They did not give me any time constraints etc. Thank you!
  6. Hi, our journey is almost done! My spouse will be flying from Canada to the USA (pre-clearance in Canada). She will have 2-3 bags of used personal belongings, which include clothing, shoes, purses, jewelry (which will probably be over $10K USD value), and a laptop. Do we need to prepare any Customs forms, list of inventory included in the bags, or declare anything at the POE? For example, Customs Declaration 6059B. I am hoping we don't have to pay any duties on these personal belongings, especially the jewelry. Thanks.
