  1. Hi fellas! I’m facing a very very bad situation right now. filed for I-751 on June 2019. After waiting for 2 years and 2 months my interview was scheduled. Got the letter in mail, like 4 days before the interview I had symptoms of COVID but I was really sure it wasn’t and called to see if I can go anyways but they told me NO! You need to reschedule, they did it but I never received the second letter with the new appointment, instead I received a decline letter stating I didn’t go to the interview! Which of course I didn’t go because I didn’t receive the letter. Five days after the decline letter was received, I received an NTA with date for may 03 2022. I’m really pissed off since I waited to damn much just to be denied due a mistake of USCIS or even USPS. I’m very confident that the judge will give me the approval since my case was rock solid and never had any problem at all with it. Just “missed” the interview. The thing is I need to travel overseas URGENTLY since I need to make a major surgery on my face or I will be facing major health problems. My main doctor is not in the US and is the one who knows the cae very well, so doing it here in the US is not an option. I don’t know what to do at this point, any advice will be really appreciated.
  2. Hello everyone, My bf (US citizen) and I (Saudi Arabian) are about to send in our I-129f petition and have some questions first that we’d appreciate getting pointers on. Bear with me a little because I’d like to explain the whole situation to better inform your answers. We are in a gay relationship, we met our second year of college in 2017 (I was on an F-1 visa) and have been together since. I returned to Saudi during the pandemic in 2020 after graduating and started working there. A few months later I decided to apply for a tourist visa to be able to visit my boyfriend. It got accepted but I never used it since I got accepted into some master’s programs in california and thought it might be best to pursue that path. We never talked about marriage or where our relationship was going (we both assumed it was going to end when I had to return to Saudi but we still talked to each other everyday). So it seemed like a good idea for me to come back for my master’s and we can pick up where we left off, hitting two birds with one stone. The trouble though is when I did my interview for the F-1 visa, the consul officer didn’t think I had strong ties to Saudi, and in hindsight she was right. She asked me who my bf is (I listed him as my US contact point under “friend”) and I told her he’s just a friend. That visa got denied, and we were crushed to think we weren’t gonna see each other soon. A month later we met in Mexico and decided to apply for a K-1 as we realized we really want to be together and are ready to get married. And we have lots of evidence proving a bona fide relationship from our time in college. Now I reazlied that in my tourist visa application I also listed him as a friend. So I’m worried it’s gonna look like I lied about my relationship with him for immigration benefits. The reason I never disclosed my relationship with him was 1) i never really understood the significance from an immigration point of view and 2) both my interviews were in Saudi and I didnt want them to know my sexuality for fear of safety, and it is second nature to me to tell all strangers that he’s just my friend and hide my sexuality. TLDR: i listed my boyfriend as a “friend” in two different non-immigrant visa applications and worried that will affect K-1 visa chances. So I would like your advice on the following: 1) Will the 214(b) F-1 denial arouse suspicions of misrepresentation if we file the I-129F shortly after? Does it matter if we wait longer? 2) Will the officers be understanding of why I lied about the relationship due to fear of safety or use that against us in the K-1 application? 3) Any information on the US embassy in Saudi would also be appreciated. How tough are they and how likely is denial/acceptance? Thank you.
  3. I'm a legal permanent resident, filed an I-130 petition for my wife in May 2016. Case was denied in June 2017. My lawyer believes that we have a very good chance of convincing USCIS/BIA (Board of Immigration Appeals) to reverse the decision. We filed an appeal on July 14th 2017, a week ago. In the appeal, we indicated that - as an alternative - USCIS can treat this as a Motion to Reopen (MTR) . Given the existing evidence (original documentation filed in I-130 packet), new evidence and the brief, we believe that USCIS may reverse the decision without having to forward the case to the BIA. My questions: - Does USCIS (The service center's director, who made the original decision) actually review the appeals before forwarding them to BIA? Do they consider them for an MTR? I was under the impression that the answer is "Yes", until I talked to a tier 2 officer this morning, and the officer said that USCIS does NOT reopen I-130 case, and they forward the case to the BIA and I should expect to receive a new case number in the mail within 3 week. The officer confirmed that USCIS never considers I-130 case for a MTR (Motion to Reopen/Reconsider). Can anyone confirm? - How long does USCIS take to review appeals before? Again, I was under the impression that USCIS takes 60 days to review the appeal/make a decition; if they are not going to reverse the decision, they will forward the case to BIA. - How long does BIA take to make a decision? I understand that the answer is "It depends" ... I just want an average, people with similar cases (LPR appealing I-130) to give us some hope ... given that our original case took 13 months (average is 5 months). - Would it be wise to file a new I-130, in addition to the appeal? - If yes, What if both the new case and the appeal get approved, Do we got to keep our original priority date? Any help would be greatly appreciated. PS:
  4. Hello, I really need some advise on my case. Please no comments on lawyers i'm fully aware that a option. So, I've applied for an adjustment of status and my issue start after my interview was completed. Me and my wife both got one question wrong during the interview which was what was her previous address before this current one. We have been living in the same house for 2years and have since forgotten our previous address. That interview was on Feb 11. My EAD/AP card was about to expire so i applied for a renewal March 16. I received no updates from uscis. My case was also not updated on the website. On April 6, I called USCIS and was told my i485 is waiting to be reviewed. On May 25, I contacted uscis about the EAD/AP and i was told to send an email to lockbox support. and my AOS is still pending. JULY 29, i finally get a response saying a notice was sent to me. I never received it. So i Decide to call and talk to tier 2 officer. I was sent a NOID on February 19. I didnt receieve this. and because i did not respond to the NOID both the i130 and i485 was denied. the denial letter was issued May 26. see image. After talking to USCIS officer they advised my to file i230b before August 26. They also was unable to email the NOID because the deadline has already passed... My question is 1) how do i effectively submit a i230b? 2) what documents should i provide? 3) I never saw the denial letter, so do i address the question we answered incorrectly in the interview? 4) what other evidence do i submit to show bonfide relationship? 5) what do i include in the brief? 6) Do i file two motions to reopen? one for i130 and one for i485 and pay two fees? And any other advice would be appreciated. I'm soo nervous and anxious.
  5. Hello, I am writing for a friend and I'm not sure where to place this topic or if there's any other topic that talks about this specific issue so please feel free to transfer this to somewhere else. My friend really needs help right now. She applied for naturalization in 2020 and had her interview last June 1 2021. However the officer did not approve nor deny her application. Please see attached detailed file. Is she in danger of deportation? She is now married to another person but according to her, when she got interviewed for the removal of conditions in 2013, she was already pregnant with her first child to her 2nd husband, who she only married 2 years ago. She came here through K1 visa, got her conditional GC in 2010, applied for removal of conditions in 2012, got interviewed for removal of conditions in 2013. I dont know when they got divorced but i think she mentioned after 3 years of marriage so i think in 2013 also? Im not sure. So, will she get deported guys? What can she do on her end if she is unable to give what uscis has asked of her (evidence of marital union from 2010-2013)? Thank you for your time.
  6. Hi All, My husband applied for citizenship while I was serving a two year teaching contract in Saudi Arabia in order to be able to save up enough money for IVF. We visited within 6 months in those two years until tragedy struck and while finally successfully pregnant I gave birth to twins in my 5th month, one died, and the other spent 4 months in the NICU. The laws in Saudi Arabia dictate that I must be employed or leave the country, so I had to sign another 8 month contract to be able to stay by my fragile baby's side. Obviously at this point my husband was not going to leave my side, and unfortunately his citizenship was rejected due to staying outside the US more than 6 months. He appealed and had his n-336 hearing in which the officer was extremely sympathetic and simply asked for more evidence such as death certificate, hospital records, and medical and employment records for my husband in the US. We had 30 days to send them that evidence and the only way to do that was online through his USCIS account. We did it within 8 days. Then, after 30 days he was sent a letter of rejection saying that we never uploaded the evidence asked for-even though it is CLEARLY on his account, I can see it uploaded with the date and everything. I called the hotline and they were basically "sorry we can't help." He now has 120 days to apply to the judicial court in the district where he lives. NJ is the state we are in. I'm so frustrated and have zero idea what to do! I can't find any information about filing this last appeal, how much it costs, how long it takes, etc. Has anyone done this before? Please help! Thank you!
  7. Good Morning and Evening All. I have been scouring the forums and really anywhere I can find information reagarding all this Fiance Visa related (don't we all?). I have been attemting to find straightforward answers about filing out the DS-160 and the social media disclosure question. This is a new, mandatory question added in May of 2019 that requires "a disclosure of all social media". what an absolutly daunting task for those of us who live their lives throught the internet. here are a few questions i simply am having a hard time finding the answers for: - When completing the DS-160 for K-1 visa application and the question asks for social media handles who are they wanting them from? Me (the US citizen petitioner? or the foreign Beneficiary?). If I am reading correctly on most "help" sites it is only the Beneficiary (person applying for the visa itself). - The question asks for "all social media in the last 5 years". this is a two part problem for me. If the social media site has not been used in the last five years but still has an active user account is that still considered as part of the five years? the second part is that it says "all" but the drop down menu is a limited list of social media sites. I know it is best practice to be honest but also best practice to give no more information than is asked or necessary. So which is it? "All" or honest? - Another issue that has vexxed me is the amount of social media handles someone may have. If they are prone to starting a twitter account or reddit account on a whim because they can't rememeber their last log on or decided on a new email account how would you find out or where could you search to recover the old account handles? What if you can't remember past email accounts or handles? Do throw away accounts still count towards the disclosure? If you miss/forget about an email/handle/social media affiliation or account and it is found out later will the CO conclude you are lying or intentionally trying to hide accounts? While I understand the need for disclosing this information to the asking governement and there is no getting around it what can be done to ensure that we have fully completed this portion of the application without inadvertently committing perjury or ommissions? Thanks in advance for any and all advice, this is truly a trying time in our lives! Cheers, Lizzy
  8. I requested an infopass because my residency expires 11/30/20. Shortly an email response advising me that my case was at the atl field office, in response to my case inquiry. I called USCIS and the agent advised me that my case was at vermont, i asked her if she could not see the email that was sent to me earlier that day 11/19/20. I then told her about the email, and she stuttered and her response was that it is still in vermont but they requested an interview at the Atl field office. I was told when I got the temporary I-551 stamp 11/20/20, yesterday, that my case is indeed at the Atlanta field office. I did indeed do an AOS interview. But my question is for anyone else who has had the samething or is going through the same thing right now. They were unable to tell me how long it has been at the ATL field office and how much longer to expect to hear something. What I was advised however that I would never get mail that it transferred to the field office only when an interview is scheduled. Can anyone who has had this experience share?
  9. Hi everyone, my wife's I130 petition was denied in 2012 after waiting 4 years the petition was affirmed and she had her second interview at the embassy may 2017. what happens next? Do I have to appeal again? Thank you for all the help!
  10. I am little confused whether my expedite request approved or not.The update in the uscis site seems confusing.Here is the update I have Requested Expedite request on 07/19 On July 19, 2017, your request to have your case expedited, referral number T1F*********CSC, was assigned to an officer for response. After waiting 5 days my case updated with the below two updates. On July 24, 2017, we sent a response to your request to have your case expedited, referral number T1F********CSC. On July 24, 2017, your request to have your case expedited, referral number T1F********CSC, was completed. Does the last update mean that my expedite request accepted for the process or I have to wait for the response as they mentioned in one of the updates above. Your inputs and experiences on this are highly appreciated. Thank you.
