  2. Hello, Our case got DQd on June 29th, 2022 and we are currently waiting for an email regarding next steps. In addition to the DQ notice, we received a review note that stated the following: "This case does not meet the minimum income requirement to sponsor the intending immigrants. To avoid delays, an additional Affidavit of Support Form I-864 from a joint sponsor may be submitted. The consular officer will make a decision regarding this requirement at the time of the interview." My wife had just graduated University and started her first job at the time of this sponsorship process and so her tax documents at the time I guess did not satisfy the minimum income requirements. As we went along the process, she got a new job and has been there for almost a year and we uploaded documents showing her current salary which more than meets the requirements. I didn't think we needed to have a joint sponsor because of this. Now that this note is on our file, we have a joint sponsor and we have completed the AOS form and gathered the financial documents to support it. In terms of uploading this on to CEAC, is there a specific way this must be done? Firstly because this is a joint sponsor and secondly because NVC has already accepted our previous documents and have stated we are documentary qualified. So I'm wondering if we just upload as normal or do something differently. It even says "an additional Affidavit of Support Form I-864 from a joint sponsor may be submitted". I would like to do so anyways to avoid any further conflicts, delays, or issues. Secondly, at the time of me submitting my civil documents, my passport was not expired. It expired throughout the process. I have renewed my passport and have both my old and new ones with me. Should I be uploading the new one on to CEAC or is this not necessary? I'm assuming I should still bring both to the interview? Thank you for the help and feedback!
  3. Hi everyone! I have a few questions about my sort of unique situation. My fiancée and I have been together for almost 4 years, and are planning to get married this April. We would like to file for the I-130 and AOS concurrently immediately after. We are both in the US, and she is a US citizen. The possible hang-ups are that I'm currently an international student with an expired F1 visa, within my expired passport, but still in status and with a new passport. My SEVIS record is still active and my I-20 has program end date on 2025, since I went on a PhD program after undergrad. I was told by my international student center that yes, I am still in legal status with all these, but I'm not sure if USCIS would treat this as a red flag? Next, while we're getting married in April, I do want to end my academic program and will not be in it starting this August. I am already incredibly tired of being in university, and it has taken its toll on my health, so going back would be a last-resort. However, not going back will cause my SEVIS record to be terminated in August -- an authorized early withdrawal. I was wondering if this would affect my application even after I've submitted the I-130 and the I-485 in April? Furthermore, my fiancée and I currently live in different states. We've lived together for two years previously, however, before I had to move to a different state for school. She currently lives with her parents because her workplace is near their house. She makes a bit above the wage requirements, so we're not worried about that. We do have proofs of our relationship, and lots of friends to back it up, but would it count against us if we have different US addresses? I am planning on moving in with her at her state around July, since I have to finish up with my lab work before leaving uni, so we are not *immediately* cohabitating after being married. Finally, would any of you recommend simplecitizen for this? I'm a bit inept at filing forms, so I thought of availing their $400 package. But if this is indeed a complicated situation, I might avail of the $850 package instead. Thank you so very much for all your help! I am so happy that this forum exists.
  4. Hello, so I am at a bit of a loss. If anyone could advise me on what the right way to do, you would really help me out. I’ll make this as brief as I can: I spend more than half the year living in Eastern Europe, I am a US citizen. In 2017 I filed a I-129F petition for my fiancé at the time. I ended up getting an approval letter, BUT we ended up breaking up. So I just didn’t do anything about it, I didn’t write them a withdrawal letter or anything, just let it be. It didn’t go farther than an approval letter. Now, I have been with someone for two years in Eastern Europe. And am trying to file a new I-129F petition. However, there is a question on the petition that asks whether I filed before, to which I marked “Yes” and then it asks what was the outcome. Since it has been over 3 years since the approval letter of the last petition I filed, do I write “cancelled” or “withdrawn”? If not, do I still have to send them a letter of Withdrawal? If so, who do I send it to? The case was in the California facility UCSIS. From what I understand, after two years the case should just be canceled, if it is canceled then it shouldn’t count as I filed two petitions at the same time, correct? I would greatly appreciate a point in the right direction. Thank you!
  5. Hello, After my interview got cancelled in March 2020, I just got re-schedule in Montreal for my F2B visa... I had all my docs ready for my first interview, and now for my second one all the docs are expired. I'm referring to the Police certificate, photos, Sponsor's tax records... Do they accept expired docs due to COVID? Or I have to get updated ones. Many thanks for all your help
  6. Hello-- I did a search for this topic, and didn't find anything. So please forgive me if this question has already been asked. We are August 2019 filers. Unfortunately, the embassy closed the day following our medical screening in March 2020. We have been waiting to be able to schedule an interview ever since. I noticed in March of this year, that our CEAC status had changed to Expired. Now, today (3.9.21) our status changed to Refused. Everything that I can find addresses this status with administrative processing following the interview. But we have not interviewed yet. I did find a couple of posts on FB that stated that this was part of the expedited process, but we haven't applied for an expedite. I did ask the embassy a couple of months ago about escalating our case, but have not heard anything besides the 2 changes in CEAC status. At this point, Expired and Refused are very stress inducing words. (I wish the embassy would just answer the simple inquiries!). I am hoping (as I have read in a few places) that this is part of the process?? Is there anyone that can shed light on this? Thank you.
  7. After receiving no response from the US Embassy in Philippines, I emailed them again through a different support link. I assume that it's an automated response; however, I'm at a lost, I don't have any idea how to advance from here. Is someone going through the same issue? Manila is back lockdown again but I did not see any announcement regarding their position. I screenshot the response I received but it basically says I have to file again and start case from scratch, unless, I can prove that it was out of my control. How do I do that precisely? Thank you for any kind of response!
  8. Hello, A friend of mine and his wife filed i130, i131, i765, i485 in October 2019. Interview was postponed in April 2020 due to COVID, and was rescheduled in January 2021, in Holtsville, NY Field Office. Following the interview, they received an RFE for 2020 IRS transcripts, 1040 and unemployment insurance benefits and end dates. They sent this on February 17th via UPS, and was signed for on February 18th. Since then, there has been no movement on his case. He has contacted both tier 1 and tier 2 agents, and been in touch with his congressperson, but has been stonewalled. He has been told that none of the RFE has been applied to his case, and that he can re submit the documents at this time. His EAD card has expired as of March 2021, and he did not file an extension, as he was told by his lawyer that, due to the AOS interview, it could potentially complicate the process. He is undergoing extreme financial hardship at the moment, as he is unable to work, and his wife is still on a low UI benefit. Can anyone please provide me with any potential avenues to pursue in assisting my friend? Thanks
  9. Recently found my petition case had expired; After receiving our NOA2 in 2020, the pandemic was quickly spreading. Travel restrictions made it difficult to pay the fees through the recommended bank by the consulate for the NVC. As a result my case expired without getting scheduled for medical and interview. I emailed the US Embassy in Philippine requesting for an extension of the case and awaiting for their reply. Is there anything else I can do? Please advise. Thank you.
  10. Hello Everyone i am so relieved that i have found visajourney and wish i knew about it years ago already. My fiance and I are Going through the K1 visa process since around march 2019 and we are currently at the 8th step according to (https://rapidvisa.com/k1-visa-process/) "Step 8. Medical Exam The fiance must have a medical exam. The package sent to the fiance by the U.S. Embassy will explain how to schedule the medical exam. You must pay a fee for the medical exam. The fee is usually paid in the local currency and varies depending on the location. You (the U.S. citizen) do nothing at this step. This fee can’t be paid from the United States." But I had not scheduled an appointment because of personal reasons and The global pandemic starting in 2020. My question is if I have to start From step1 again (USC IS Filing) since it's been almost 2 years when I have received the Letter to go get a medical examination. OR if I still have the chance/possibility to schedule an appointment for a medical exam and continue with an interview after receiving the exam Letter. I have not found any information if there is some sort of expiration date for the k1 process if it takes me too long to get all my documents together which are required for the interview, all i found was that the medical exam expires 6 months AFTER taking it but not BEFORE. OR is there maybe a way to "extend" the K1 visa so i dont have to start from step1 again ? PLEASE free to ask me any further questions if something is not clear i am really hoping that somebody has an ansquer to my questions.
