  1. My fiance (wife now) moved here in a I-129F visa in September. We were married last week (6 weeks after her arrival). Unfortunately, she didn't bring her 8 year old son because we wanted him to arrive near the beginning of the summer so he could get acquainted with English before he started school (approximately 7 months after my wife arrived). Her son was listed on the I-129F, but I never filed a DS-160 for him because I wasn't aware I needed to file one. It didn't matter because my wife didn't attempt to get a Visa for him at the time. When I asked the embassy, they said I needed to file the following documents: · DS-2001 (Link) · DS-160 Confirmation Page (Link) · GSS Confirmation Page (Link) Now I am filing the I-465 to adjust her status (plus the I-765 and I-864), plus the required paperwork. I have a few questions that are stressing us out: Can I file a I-465 for him even though her son still lives in Thailand, or do I need to wait for him to arrive (or wait for his Visa to be granted)? Can I use the same GSS confirmation page I used with her, or do I need to go through the form again (I can't even recall what that was)? If I file the I-465 after he arrives, is there anything I need to worry about aside from the extra filing fees? Finally, I will need to file a I-131 so she can travel to pick up her son in May. How accurate do the travel dates need to be on I-131? I looked all over the place to find answers to these questions, and I couldn't find the answers anywhere. I really appreciate any help people can provide, because I'm at a loss now. Thank you - Joel
  2. Something unexpected happened, my LFO is San Francisco and the waiting time is around 17 months to 24 months, so I wasn't really expecting any updates on my AOS any time soon. Today I went in and check my case status out of curiosity and it says that 2 days ago an interview was scheduled . So I have a couple of questions: 1. How long does it take to receive the notice on the mail? 2. To the interview, should we take our daughter who is also adjusting status? 3. Would the notice say the documents that we should take to the interview? Thanks so much for the help!
  3. Hi I want to know if an illegitimate child needs parental consent or something else. The child is 4 years old and the father is not part of the picture and never has been.
  4. Hi guys, I figured I could start this thread for May 2018 AOS filers in case no one has started one already. I filed for my two children , 11 and 9. They followed-to-join with K2 visas. Whats your case? Good luck to all us and let’s believe. It’s possible.
  5. Patriz and I are close to the Interview stage of our K1 Visa process. Patriz has a 4 year old daughter in a K2 visa application and we are worried that she may not be able to leave PHI with her. The daughter already has a Passport without fathers consent. Patriz has never been married. Father married another woman before the child was born. Father's name is still on the Birth Certificate. The father is not supporting the daughter. He does not see the daughter. Question: Will she need a the father's consent if she has a CENOMAR?
  6. Approved by USCIS July 18th We have our NOA1 receipt, but no NOA2 because they forgot to put an APT number on the address. NVC was contacted and I have Email/Letter from NVC. We are in READY status. Waiting another week for Passports to arrive so DS-160 is not complete. Printed Application Fee Receipts today and will pay the fee today or tomorrow. Question: After we pay the fees, can we go ahead and schedule an Interview or do we need to wait for the NOA2 document to arrive in the mail and the DS-160s to be complete?
  7. I'm just looking for verification that a green card holder who came to the US as a K1 can file an aos for her son who came to the US as a K2 at the same time. She would rather file it without the original petitioners assistance. The son is unmarried and under 21. Is this possible? Any issues to watch out for? TIA
  8. I think we made a big mistake, my wife's daughter who is 20 now had plans in coming here before she turned 21, my wife came as a k1 visa holder and her daughter remained in Colombia until she finished school, soon after she finished school she got pregnant, now she and her boyfriend applied for tourist visa but visa was denied, Can my wife apply for her and her baby to come here before she turns 21? I had the chance to apply for her as American citizen but we were told since she has a baby I'm no longer elegible to do it, but my wife instead.
  9. Do you know if they require any legal forms/letters to move with kids (aged 9, 11)? Kids’ Dad is totally supportive, mediation docs state that any move out of region needs to be communicated, but will they require something more than a notarized letter from him granting permission? Thanks in advance!
  10. Hi everyone just wanted to know about your stay out of the US using AP while waiting for your GC??? do any of you stayed longer out of the country for more than 8 months? Did u encounter any problems? What’s the longest stay of yours out of the US? Thanks to those who’ll respond!
  11. Hello everyone, My fiance and her son have K1 and K2 visa which will expire July 19 , she is having problems getting signature from her son's father for permission to being her son to USA . We have a couple questions Is it possible to get an extension for their visas and I can send her proof that her son will have better life here ( best schools, his room decorated, etc. ) that way she can show a judge that and they can make the father sign the permission . Or if she entered before July 19 without her son, and we get married but she only stays 2 weeks to collect evidence of better life, if she returns to Peru I know we will have to start Visa over and as married couple but will it be easier or harder since she had a Visa before as fiance?
  12. I submitted AOS, EAD and AP for me and my son on 8 may 2019, we got notice of rejection 14 may 2019, my son and I are from K1 and K2 visa and i have been married on April 20, 2019. I read on the Notice they asked for my son's copy of NOA2 form I-797 of I 130 ( petition of alien relative), they are mistakes on that makes my application been rejected - USCIS think my son is from Alien Relative I130 and asked me to provide evidence of NoA of I130, meanwhile my son is a K2 and a dependent from a K1 and we were applying together. I called USCIS representative and explained about the application was rejected but actually my son is a K2 visa holder, he said i need to resent all the application again and add the proof of NOA2 I129F, (even though I actually already submitted all in my AOS, EAD, AP bundles of my son and my application) I got all my paper returned to me and there's marked on the bottom of it printed, i called the USCIS and explained my situation, and he advised me to resent all my documents along with a copy of my approved NOA2 of my fiance I129F petition. What should i do? do i need to reprint the new forms and also all supporting documents ? or just send all these paper again and add explamation that i am a K1 and K2 visa not from spouse visa? thank you
  13. Hello im filling out the cfo form. What do you put in 'NEAREST RELATIVES...IN THE PHILIPPINES'? I tried not to put anything in there but it requires tel number and email. What should i do?
  14. My girlfriend and I have been dating for a few years now. She' has attempted numerous times for a B1 Visitors visa with no avail. We both knew it was a long shot but made 5 attempts. She has a child from a previous relationship whom will be 6 years old soon. I want to apply for both her and her son. But the situation is this. His father is from UAE, he has not been a part of his son's life since his son was only a few months old. She has talked with him about attaining letter so that she can apply for the K1 and he refuses. I've read this letter can be asked for my immigration. Is this something i need to be concerned about? And if so, what can we do to ensure a smooth journey. How can she leave with her child?
  15. Preparing to go to CDO, Mindanao. Found a $900 r/t Den-NK-Manila flight for next month, Wanting to get the Person--Person part completed, so we can start paperwork ASAP., I haven't been on here in awhile, but in just looking it seems there has been a slowdown in processing times. Are K'1/2 Visas still making it through ok is my main question? I meet the 125% as of now and should still after March 1, 2019, unless the 125% goes up $7k Another question, is St. Luke still the ONLY place to receive Health Approval? Thanks for your help. Let the fun begin I suppose
  16. Greetings, I entered the United States with my daughter on a K1 and K2 visa. My fiance, now a husband, got married within 90 days of entry. However, my visa expired on December 10, 2018. That being said, I am currently applying for registration of permanent residence (AOS). For financial reasons, we give priority to my application and will do my daughter's at a later date. I know this may seem like a silly question but I was wondering what I should answer on Form I-485 with regard to the section "Information about your children" where it is asked, "Is this child applying with you?". In addition, under "Information on previous marriages", the question "Prior Spouse Date of Birth", I do not remember his date of birth, I have not spoken to him for more than 10 years and I have no means of contact either. Not to mention, our divorce certificate does not indicate this information either, unfortunately. Can someone help me with this? I want to make sure to fill everything in correctly before sending it. This is obviously something I do not want to take lightly. I appreciate it enormously! Thank you! ❤️
  17. Hi VJ friends. I just wanted to know if my kids ages 11, 9 and 8 could apply for their social security number even with an expired I-94. We don't apply for the AOS yet since we are still in the process of saving for the AOS fees. Since it will be a hefty amount for the 4 of us. My question is, will it be possible to apply for their social security even with an expired I-94 on their passport? I really appreciate your answer guys. Thank you in advance.
  18. We have gotten approval of the I-129F. We are getting ready to set up for the interview. My fiancé has 2 children. One will travel with her, and one will follow to join. I am not sure of the process. I think I understand we need to fill out a DS-160 for her and the child that will come with her, and set the appointment for both together. As far as the child following to join, do we fill out a DS-160 now and indicate he will follow? Or is there some place on the DS-160 to say she has a child that will be filling out a DS-160 later? Or do we fill out a 160 for all three then indicate the follow to join at the appointment part of the process. She will be more lost than I so I am trying to make sure I have a handle on everything. I looked at a sample 160 and don't see anything about it. Please clarify if you have experience. Although my attorney is not handling this part, they indicated that I would indicate the follow to join option on the 160. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Will
  19. I hope the group doesn't mind this question, but I am seeking a little guidance. I have tried finding this information myself via Internet research, but with no success. Thank you in advance! My fiance and I are still processing our K-1/K-2 Visas. If all goes well, I hope to bring her and her daughter (age 4) to the states early next year. I am unsure of the laws in both the Philippines and US regarding adopting a child. I would like to be able to give her my last name. My fiance and the father have never been married so the child was illgitimate according to filipino law. My fiance's daughter also has the sir name of the father. My question is, will I have to go through an adoption process to offer the child my last name? Even though the mother has all the control due to lack of marriage (i.e. filipino family law), will I require the father's permission to change her last name and/or adopt her? Is any of this altered if her mother become's a naturalized US citizen? If we do need his permission, is a notarized (or perhaps just signed) document sufficient or does he have to execute a process of some sort in the philippines? I truly appreciate any advice you can offer!
  20. Hi all, My partner and myself have been together for over 5years now and finally, after a lot of travelling we are filing for the K1 visa. The question I have is at what point do we apply for the K2? We’re currently putting everything together to send off with the I129F form but obvs there’s not much about the kids on there. Does the K2 paperwork come once this form has been received. I understand this part is more to inform them of our relationship, and our intentions. Any help clearing up this confusion would be more than greatfully received. Thanks
  21. Hi! I have a K2 and our CEAC status just recently changed to "Ready". I noticed that our status only shows my case number and does not state anything about my K2. How could this happen when we did declare that I do have a daughter in our I129-f? Does this mean my daughter is not included in the petition?
  22. Hello every one. I am going through the K1 visa process. I am a January 2018 filer. My question is my fiance has a minor son and Peru laws states that we must have the fathers signature to leave Peru. The problem is not with initially leaving Peru to move but it's every time we go visit Peru will he have to have the fathers signature every time we visit Peru and return back to America?
  23. Hi I’m a K2 Visa holder and I was wondering if I could get married here in US and get my visa adjusted
  24. Ive seen many posts requiring a ton of stuff that the instructions never mention so i'm confused whether or not we need all of this documentation. In the instructions from USCIS, https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/form/i-765instr.pdf on page 13, it says you need these things Application filled out a copy of your EAD (the card i assume) 2 identical passport style photos that's all i see for filing documentation. can someone point me to other official uscis documentation stating other required paperwork? I see plenty of posts saying we need the i765 NOA1 and NOA2 and a g1145 form but that's not listed here..
  25. Hello Friends. Who can confirm or explain in a better way? A petition for K2 visa, can only be done at the time K1 is filled! We cant not apply for a K2 months while K1 is in process nor after K1 visa was issued, it is a single shoot to include the child (same package) when we apply for K1. If we miss that opportunity, we must file for other type of visa to bring the child to follow the mother. Just looking for confirmation on what I understood. Thanks Van Der
