  1. What's the best way to submit my CR1 application? I'm at the final step of completing my online application but I wanted to make sure that it's "the best way" to submit it instead of sending the application via mail. Also somehow I can't upload our whatsapp conversation file during the engagement period, is that necessary in the additional proof of marriage? - I have tried several browsers to upload the pdf file which includes around 400 pages and under 3 MB.
  2. Hello, On the I-130a form, on page 6, we are having issues filling out my name digitally even though there is no issue filling it out any other section of that form and becuase of that, I wanted to ask, did anyone else have issues filling out their name digitally and is there any way to do it? Also, is it neccesary to sign the form? Thank you!
  3. Hi, I'm moving/flying back to the USA(US Citizen by birth) on Feb 21st from UK (overstay due to not having funds to get home because of COVID). I am about to file for my wife's i-130. What date do i put for in the 'until' box for this residence in the UK? As i haven't left yet and its in the future, i cannot put a future date, but i would like to add my US residence, to allow them to see proof of intent to domicile. I do not want to compromise anything by saying I've moved out today and moved into my US residence today when it wont be until the 21st February. Also i do not have exact dates for my first two jobs that i need to input and have put rough estimates as i was unsuccessful obtaining employment dates from them, will this be ok as long as i write a notice about this at the end? How do i go about this? All advice would be very much appreciated. Thanks Snooch.
  4. Hello. This might be a bit long but I want to provide as much background to my situation so those who can help me get a good picture of where I am.. My USC spouse and I (a Zimbabwean national resident in the UK) are in the process of putting together our petition for i130. We met back in June 2019 while he was stationed here in the UK (he's USAF). We spent nearly every day together and have several visits with his friends, my friends, my family and I even met his father when he came to visit. He then got orders to PCS and he went back to the US in November of 2019. We continued our relationship long distance throughout 2020, then when travel bans were lifted, he returned to the UK to visit me in December 2020 and during that visit we got engaged. We decided it would be easier to get married here in the UK since I have family here and his family wouldn need visas to enter the UK as they are USCs who hold US passports. As per UK laws a couple that intends to marry is required to "give a notice of intent to marry" at their local Registrar's Office. Also, the UK laws say that if a person is intending to travel to the UK to marry or give notice of intent to marry, they have to apply for a Marriage Visitor Visa. Since hubby is a US passport holder he didnt have a lot of experience with the ins and outs of applying for visas, so I put together most of what he needed and he applied and got his visa. He came to the UK and we gave notice of intent to marry. Great! We planned the wedding: small and intimate but with both sets of parents in attendance and some of both our aunts and uncles. Now, fast forward to today we're looking to start putting together our i130 petition pack. We've split our responsibilities into two parts: he will put together all the financial and legal aspects since he has records of the military docs that list me as his spouse and dependant, the docs that have me listed on his insurance as his beneficiary, his requests to his chain of command for all his visits etc. I am supposed to put together proof of relationship, ie; gathering photos, chats, details of trips etc. So this is where my question comes in: How many photos and chat logs would suffice to prove our relationship is bona fide? We talk EVERYDAY texting on WhatsApp and we have a lot of photos, with friends, family, of the wedding, trips and getaways. We have receipts from AirBnBs, his flights... I could go on and on. I just need a guideline as to how MUCH content I should provide. I don't want to overdo it but I don't want to come up short. Thank you for reading and any pointers would be appreciated. Taffy

  6. Hi guys. My wife participated J1 program in 2019. She had 3 jobs, all of them legit and in none was she paid under the table. She got W2 from 2 employers, the 3rd one didn't send her anything because she made under 500/600$ Is she supposed to include this information, about the 3rd employer in the Employee history on the I130A? Because then, at the NVC stage they might ask about these W2s and she doesn't have one.
