  1. Hello There. I would like to share my IR1 journey so far. I will keep it short and simple. We tried our best to find a joint sponsor to support our case, unfortunately we weren't successful. After much consideration and consultation we finally decided to try our fate with whatever we have in hand. We got married in 2018 and we have 2 kids (my wife + 2 kids all US nationals) 2017- 2018 (my wife was living abroad with me - Saudi Arabia). in 2018 September she went back to the USA so we can start our immigration process, later we got the news that she is pregnant with our 2nd child (birth year 2019) and that same year(2019) we got approval from USCIS and our case was transferred to NVC for further processes. 2019 September she visited me again with the new born baby and we got stuck due to COVID situations all over the world until Mid of 2020. Finally after settling in with the new born & getting back to USA 2020 September she started working and she is earning 2k over the said poverty guideline up to this date. Since she started working in Sep 2020, her 2020-W2 only shows income and deductions for the period of 4 months. (Sep2020 to Dec2020). We have included a self-explanatory letter (stating why we didn't file taxes for the year 18/19) along with 2020 W2(4 months), 1044(4 months). All proofs have been attached such as resident permits for staying outside, birth certificate of our child born in 2019 etc. We have included employment letter & paystubs covering period of (September 2020 to July 2021) Our NVC submission date is 02nd July I would like to know anyone out here in the VJ forum facing a similar situation as me, it will help prepare for what's coming ahead for us. Also I will keep this thread updated for the sake it can help someone in the same boat as me. Thank you for taking time to read this post. Wishing everyone a wonderful day ahead.

  3. The documents tab on my USCIS account stopped working last Thursday. Before then l could see a list of all documents submitted as well as USCIS notices. Now it defaults to the case status. Any similar experience?
  4. I live in Missouri (US) and my fiancé lives in Morocco. I have done extensive research and tried posting in other forums (until finding this one) to find out if the letter of consent to marry and other documents that require my fiancé’s signature require the original hand written version or if a copy/photo would suffice? What about the passport photos. Can the photos be sent to me electronically and printed at a Walgreens or printing shop? Also do I need a copy of every page of her passport or just the page with the passport number, her photo, birth date, etc? Sending mail today is incredibly slow with the pandemic and online shopping peaking. I appreciate any help and apologize if the format of my question(s) is incorrect.
  5. Hi guys, When I arrived in the US, the CBP has entered my middle name as my first name and now both, my first and middle name, are connected to one long name. We didn't go back to the CBP office to fix it because it would have meant to drive all the way to LAX and the I-94 was about to expire so that we wouldn't have been able to get a SSN card. However, the name is also wrong on my SSN card and now that I got my EAD, I intend to fix it. Unfortunately, I need to send the documents in to get the corrected SSN card, because we cannot go to the social security office in person. Has any of you done that before? I looked on their website and it looks like the only documents I need to send in are the application and I-766 (Employment Authorization Document). Is that correct? There is technically no name change - I just want the correct name on my SSN card. Thank you for your help!
  6. Anyone else have their interview cancelled at The US Embassy in Montreal? My interview was supposed to be March 30 2020 at 930 am .. I am in the dark about my documents as my Background check expires July 12 and My medical expires August 21st (ish). I can’t update my medical because the office isn’t open to them now and neither is the police station to update background checks. I find this so completely unfair to not be given any update giving peace of mind. The money that has been invested and most of all the emotional investment. Anyone hear anything at all??? Grasping at straws here
  7. I will be filing my own petition for my spouse to come to the US. The new process is to file the paperwork online at USCIS. Do I need to upload the financial support paperwork now or wait until they ask me for them?
  8. Hi everyone, I have my citizenship interview coming up and am preparing what docs I need to bring with me. I applied under the 3-year marriage rule and initially submitted a copy of my husband’s birth certificate (he’s the US citizen). Do I need to bring the original to the interview or will his passport be enough? When submitting the docs initially he was renewing the passport, so I didn’t submit it’s copy. Am asking because we can’t find his birth certificate now!!
  9. Hi all, I have asked for a post like this to be stickied, but have not had a response from anyone. Please see below for relevant information regarding medical summaries: If you are registered on https://patient.emisaccess.co.uk/ (most GPS are doing this), you can view, and print your own summary. If you don't have access to the full summary (I only have access to vaccines and current medications), you can request your GP to print this off for you instead. This is not your medical history, and should be no longer than 10 pages. I heard a story of someone saying it can take a couple of weeks to come back, I personally didn't receive mine after calling (I waited 5 days), so I went to my surgery in the afternoon, and waited there until they printed it out for me. There's no reason for this to take that long at all. It's not a massive letter or anything, it's just a print out of significant history. I've attached an example of what it is that's being requested, however, what you'll receive from your doctor is an A4 print out, which should only be a page or 2. I'm 30 and have had a few doctors visits, my print out was 2 pages which included recent blood tests. I will post a comment of the e-mail I had from Knightsbridge confirming this also. Hope this helps! Lisa "Dear Lisa, Thank you for your email. As we are a third party medical group we do not have access to any patient or NHS records. A patient summary is a requirement for the US Embassy London and is needed to complete your paperwork. We appreciate this can be difficult to obtain. It is a patient summary we are looking for (care summary), and this should be no longer than 10 pages. This summary will outline any health issues you may have had previously and any on-going issues you may currently have, including any medication you are taking. Please note, we do not need your entire medical history. You will be able to print this yourself on Patient Access - once you register your NHS number. I hope this email is helpful, any further queries please get in direct contact. Please see the link below which may also be useful. https://uk.usembassy.gov/visas/family-immigration/medical-examination/"
  10. Hi everyone, I'm asking this on behalf of a friend. She moved earlier this year, changing states, and hasn't yet updated her driver license due to COVID-19 restrictions. I'm helping her prepare her N-400 and told her how to request her IRS tax transcripts. For 2019, her income was below the required threshold to file, and I'm seeing other posts on the forum like this one where people suggest requesting a wage and income transcript to demonstrate that the applicant wasn't required to file. Per the IRS website: Because she moved earlier this year, I'm assuming her new address isn't on file with the IRS. I'm wondering if it's still possible for her to request her normal tax return transcripts for prior years and wage and income transcript for 2019 to be sent to her new address. Thanks for any insights you might have on this!
  11. I hope this is a good forum to post in since it's more of a general question. In this particular case, I'm asking on behalf of a friend who is gathering her documents to apply for her N-400 naturalization. She moved states early in the coronavirus pandemic and as a result has not been able to update her driver license to her new address/state. Everything else, such as documents about her child's school enrollment, utility bills, lease, et cetera, reflects the new, correct address. My understanding is that the Texas DPS (DMV) has reopened for appointments, so I will encourage her to double check that and make an appointment. For the submission of the N-400 itself, does one need to upload a copy of the state ID/DL specifically, or just any ID (such as green card and foreign passport)? If the requirement to show the state ID/DL is during the N-400 interview as opposed to the initial application, I will encourage her to submit as soon as possible. Thanks for any information on this!
  12. I suppose that there are no stupid questions ... I'm applying for citizenship, I'm married to a US citizen but I've been living in the USA for nearly 6 years so I just decided to apply based on the length of my residence. One marriage, no children, my spouse doesn't station abroad, I didn't travel outside the US for more than 6 months, no arrest/convictions. Did I determine right that the only supporting documents that I need is my GC and tax transcripts from past 5 years???
  13. Hello VJmembers! I hope everyone is safe and well. I'm trying to figure where or how to find a place that does translations for important documents such a degrees, records any kind of official papers. Where should I look into to get those done? Is there some kind of office to search via State and city to see where those places provide those services. (In the USA of course). Any leads will be appreciated!
  14. I finished the ds 260 and now am submitting some additional documents that are required by the country that my husband is immigrating from and has citizenship. But I dont know which category the document would fall under. Is it ok to attach the document multiple times and choose a different category each time? So that way when everything is submitted there will at least be one correctly attached document... Or should I just attach it once and guess the best category?
  15. Hi there, Visa category: F4 I have submitted all of my documents including affidavit of support, DS260 and civil documents to CEAC online on 25th February 2020. Its been more than 10 weeks of my first submission which is the Affidavit of support, but still there's NO SINGLE REVIEW from CEAC end so far. This is emotionally very frustrating and getting really stressful over the days. However, I've tried making an inquire through the NVC inquiry form but all I got in return is "THE DOCUMENTS YOU SUBMITTED ARE BEING REVIEWED" and this has happened twice. In regards to the situation described, what actions can I take other than waiting or if I can apply for expedite under the basis of emotional hardship? Any kinds of support and info will be appreciated. TIA

  17. I am a US Citizen who applied of CR1 visa on March 12 via Online Submission. I did not see any documentation requirement of attaching Birth Certificate for me or my Spouse. However I have seen some topics here with some members getting Request for Evidence to submit both the Birth Certificate of the Husband and Wife. WIll it hurt if I go now and upload the Birth Certificates and avoid any Request for Evidence?
  18. I made multiple copies of my petition i was under the impression I should send my fiancé basically a copy of everything I sent. I was reading some guide lines that they don’t recommend sending anything by mail but I think it would look good for her interview when the time comes? It would be going to Manila from the United States . My original copy will still in the US correct? Sorry for all the questions thanks stay safe
  19. My sister was denied a B2 Visitor visa to attend my wedding at the US Embassy in Rwanda. I am getting married end of April this year, and I have been living in the US for 12+ years. I am a US Permanent Resident, I am well US educated, have a good job, and enough savings to be able to support my whole family if they come visit. My sister is a medical Doctor with 15+ years experience and is the head of a Hospital department, she is married, and has 2 children. She owns her own house and has enough money in her bank account to support herself as well. I invited her for my wedding and I was planning to have her as my maid of honor. She applied for a visa, just for herself, because she wanted her husband to stay home with the kids. She had her employment letter and she had copies of my Green card with her, she even had both our birth certificates to prove that we are sisters. I gave her a letter of invitation, my bank statements, she even took her own bank statements, and the title and pictures of her house and family - In summary, she had all kinds of supporting documents that proves that she will be well taken care of, and that she definitely is planning on going back to her country and her family after my wedding. During her interview, they did not even look at any of the documents she brought. They only asked her three questions: - Who do you want to go visit? Sister answer: My sister - When was she born? Sister answer: my birthday - What is your relationship? Sister answer: We are sisters - Sorry, today you have been denied the B2 Visitor Visa. Here is a letter slip with reasons why you were denied. That was it! They did not look at any paperwork she brought and did not even ask her any other relevant question - not even the reason why she is applying. That letter slip was just a generic letter that says that not enough documentation was provided. But how can they say she failed to provide enough documentation when they did not even look at any document she brought with her? She is my only sister, and I really wanted her at my wedding as my maid of honor, I don't have any other family member who would be attending my wedding. We would like her to apply a second time, but we want to ensure that this time around she has a better chance of getting her visa accepted. - I am thinking about personally writing a letter to the US Embassy in my country and explain her case - Another option (costly) would be for me to fly to my country, and accompany her to her Visa interview and show my original documents (ID and Green Card) and try to explain to the visa officer in person why it would be important for me to have her on wedding day Do you think any of the two options above would help? What else do you think we could do? I am at a loss here, and any help on this matter would be very appreciated.
