  1. Hi, group. I hope everyone is doing fine today. 18 years ago my dad applied for my mom and me with the form I-130. USCIS sent us a notice of approval, but after that my dad didn't follow up with NVC. I asked NVC for my case number and they replied. I checked the status and it says "At NVC". Is it possible to continue with this case after 18 years? maybe with a lawyer? Or do I need to start over with USCIS? I am 27 years old (not married) and my dad is a USA citizen. I hope someone can help. Thanks in advance!
  2. Hi, group. I hope everyone is doing fine today. 18 years ago my dad (LPR back then) applied for my mom (beneficiary) and me (me as a derivative) with the form I-130 in 2003. USCIS sent us a notice of approval in 2005, but after that, my dad didn't follow up with NVC. I asked NVC for my case number and they replied. I checked the status and it says "At NVC". NVC sent a notice of 1 year in 2011 but still my dad didn't follow up for reasons beyond his control. Is it possible to continue with this case after 18 years? maybe with a lawyer? Or do I need to start over with USCIS and a new I-130? I am 27 years old (not married) and my dad is a USA citizen now (naturalized). USCIS still shows as "My case was approved" NVC shows: At NVC. I hope someone can help. Thanks in advance!
  3. Hello everyone, I'm writing a post for anyone that encounters this issue in the future. I was trying to submit my application (N-400) online using Google Chrome (also tried Int. Explorer and Firefox) I was able to upload all my files with absolutely no issues: however, when I got to the review: I got a notice stating: "Encountered an unexpected error retrieving draft evidence" this is what I saw, all my files were gone. It was so frustrating; I repeated the same thing probably 30 times in the next ten days and got the same results; (no files attached to my application). I was getting tired of the online filing system; I tried calling them, and it didn't work, and in the end, I was even thinking about filing by mail, but in my last effort to hopefully submit this form, I started researching this issue online; it took some time, but then I found a user by the name (J/G from Indonesia) that went through the same problem online a year ago but was able to figure it out. He suggested downloading (Opera Browser) from their official website (https://www.opera.com/download); I was so happy that I had found a potential solution to this issue, but after all that excitement, guess what? It did not work for me either. after another unsuccessful attend to submit my application; honestly, I was about to give up, and that was when my clever Wife literality begged me to try one more time. She had the incredible idea of deleting the whole draft and starting again; I didn't like the idea since I have already done that like 15 times, so this is what I did. Downloaded (Opera Browser) Download a copy of my application pdf (with answers to all the questions) to save the answers and to copy-paste I deleted my whole draft Organized the evidence for quick upload Switched from a Windows computer to Mac computer Created a new draft and started all over again. (If you start a new draft, DO NOT GO BACK; start from question one to the end without going back; I know it could be unpleasant, but trust me, it is worth it.) And guess what, it worked!!! and It felt fantastic!!! Oh yeah!! So I then proceeded with the Review, Signature and Payment, completed and submitted my N-400 application and received a receipt number beginning with "IOE." Note: do not go crazy about not submitting a ton of evidence at first; any additional documents you forgot or that you would like to upload, it can be done later or once your application has been submitted to USCIS. This is what you will see once your application has been paid and submitted. I hope this helps anyone that is going through the same issue! Good Luck!! Best, Eljsa27

  5. Hello. I will be crossing the US land border from Canada with my approved K-1 Fiancé visa in the next few months. I am trying to research options for crossing the border with all my personal items. I am wondering if anyone could shed light on land crossing requirements. I would like to drive across in a Canadian vehicle that I am registered under then drive it back to the border (not across) for a family member to pick up, once I am moved in. I have no intention of officially importing the vehicle to the US. Is this generally allowed without any extra paperwork involved? Thanks
  6. Where do you find out in what stage your green card production is? I went to USCIS and entered case # but it said that the case was sent NVC. TIA
