  1. Long story short: Husband came here July 2020 on a K1 visa, we got married in Aug. 2020, submitted attempt 1 at his AOS packet in September. Got denied due to some errors, resubmitted in October and got NOA1 on Nov. 6, 2020. We have heard absolutely nothing since. I don't know if he needs a biometric next, or if he would just do his green card interview, but at this rate we have no idea what's next because they haven't said a word in almost 8 months. Our receipt # is from the National Benefits Center; our local office is Indianapolis. I know it always takes long and is even more delayed due to COVID, but this is putting a huge strain on our family. He needs to be able to work and visit his family abroad. Not being able to do so has been extremely hard for him, obviously. It's putting us in a difficult spot financially as well. I'm aware that this process often takes quite awhile, but I want to see if there is anything at all we can do to help move things along. Does anyone have suggestions for how to help move things forward? Or get a timeline of sorts? We did reach out to a senator or two, which I just learned is a thing, but not sure if that'll help. Any suggestions appreciated!
  2. My husband came here on his k1 visa last July. I left my job a couple months ago to become self employed, so we now have marketplace insurance. We were able to get the coverage just fine, but now they're stating that to keep the coverage, we need to provide a document with 'either the admitted date or allowable duration of stay'. I already gave them his I94 and visa with the date he was admitted on it. I submitted two different letters explaining that there literally is no document saying the duration of his stay, because he is here indefinitely. They continue to state that his documents are insufficient and seem to be ignoring my explanation. They don't give any context other than the message above, and continue to demand a document that does not exist. There is no reason this should be happening because Adjustment for LPR is listed as an approved status on the marketplace website. We've given them EVERY document we have (I797, I94, marriage license, visa/passport), which are all on their approved list. The last thing we got from USCIS is the I797 stating that his I485 is pending, but haven't heard ANYTHING since that came on November 6, 2020. He doesn't have his EAD yet, that's also still pending since Nov. So we have nothing else to give them. I have spoken to 4 supervisors who understood and said that our documents should be fine. I have submitted multiple letters clearly explaining the situation. I have submitted an appeal which I'm waiting on. I've tried to schedule a call with a case worker (they have to call me though, I can't call them, and they kept trying when I wasn't available). I have done absolutely everything I can think of. Has anyone else faced this? I don't think my spouse should have to settle for some crappy short term/catastrophic insurance that doesn't cover anything, which we will have to do if he loses coverage. To me that shouldn't happen, especially when the marketplace's own website says that folks waiting on their green card are eligible! If that's really true, then they should understand that not all immigrants are given a document in the interim until they get their green card. This has been so frustrating... any input is appreciated.
  3. Hi, my father is a LPR and he filed up a I-130 form for me at 09/25/2020 (I was 20 years and 10 months old). So i was at the F2A category. My priority date is october 1st 2020. At the 18th of october 2021 i became 21 and i was wondering do i still considered to be in the F2A category or did i fall into F2B as the adult child of an LPR?? Because my file is at Nebraska service location and F2A processing time has passed my priority date. When i tried to send uscis a unquiry for outside normal processing time and results said “my application is currently within the posted processing times”. I don’t understand does CSPA work for me or should i do something?
  4. Hi, I have gained my Lawful Permanent Resident status in the US on April 2019, last year, on that time I was serving in the army under mandatory law for military service in my home country. I have been serving since November 2017 and until July 2020. I have already had flight tickets in my hands into the US that were planned for April 2020- so I shall not remain outside of the US for a period longer than 1 year. Unfortunately, Covid-19 pandemic has shown up and I could not have come to the US on times because the airline has cancelled my tickets. because of that, I have exceeded 1 year outside of US borders and now I need to apply for SB-1 Returning Resident visa in order to come back to the US. this upcoming process is exhausting and complicated in order to issue me a new immigrant visa and may hurt my naturalisation process. my green card was only issued last year and is valid until 2029, my question is if would you recommend for me to just take a flight now into the US and deal with the immigration officer at the port of entry or start this visa process with the embassy in my home country?
  5. Hi I moved/entered the US as an LPR when I was 17, a month before 18 but I still got my green card. We failed to get my passport immediately because my dad lost his naturalization cert. so we're waiting for 5-8 months to get another one and be able to apply for the passport again. I'm currently 18 and looking to open a bank and I don't know what to put under the "Citizenship" in the forms so help me out?
  6. Hi I moved/entered the US as an LPR when I was 17, a month before I turned 18 so still qualified under INA 320. But, we failed to get my passport immediately because my dad lost his naturalization cert. so we're waiting for 5-8 months to get another one and be able to apply for the passport again. I'm currently 18 and looking to open a bank account and I don't know what to put under the "Citizenship" in the forms, US or Philippines?
  7. Hi all, After doing so much research but getting nowhere I have come across to visajourney for some help! I have a few questions hoping you guys can point me in the right direction. Here is our background. I'm a permanent citizen in the US and I filed for form I130 for my wife back in Early May this year, so far no updates. And my N400 application is due to complete in January 2020. I was wondering if my N400 goes through in January, and then I'll upgrade the petition, can my wife come and stay her 90 days then file for AOS ? She'll be arriving on ESTA. Many Thanks.
  8. Hi I just got here in the US 3 weeks ago through my IR-2 visa with an annotation "“UPON ENDORSEMENT SERVES AS TEMPORARY I-551 EVIDENCING PERMANENT RESIDENCE FOR 1 YEAR.”. I'm 17 years old turning 18 in a couple of days and my dad was naturalized when I was 15 y/o. We were supposed to apply for a passport but my dad lost his naturalization certificate so we're still gonna have to wait 5-8 months to get it. I just have a couple of questions: 1.) What is my status here in the United States? 2.) Do I need to apply for a green card? 3.) Did I already become a citizen when I got here? 4.) Am I still going to be eligible to apply for a passport even after I turn 18?
  9. Hi guys, I'm in a bit of pickle right now...I have a return flight booked to visit my LPR husband from 4th Aug - 6th Oct, i will be travelling under ESTA. I'm currently out of work and we filed for I-130 back in end of April. And my last visit lasted 2.5 months ending in Mid April. I understand that i will have to bring marriage certificate and copy of husband's passport and green card scan with me, I have no plan to overstay or apply for AOS, we are doing everything by the books and hopefully one day we will be able to live together in the US. But I have some concerns regarding whether i will be granted entry: - Will CBP cancel my ESTA prior to departure? - How likely will I be turned away at POE? Please help, thank you all.
  10. Hi, my husband is a LPR (through work) and now eligible for naturalization. The problem is I was denied the extension of my O-1 and currently overstay. What should he put in the form N-400 part 10 Information about your Marital History - 7.C Current Spouse's Immigration Status. We think we should be honest but I don't want that part to jeopardize his process including me. Thank you so much in advance for your answers.

  12. Hi All, Appreciate anyone who can shed some light to my query. My mom filed an I-130 Petition for Alien Relative for myself way back 2014 and already approved. This is during the time that my mom was a legal permanent resident. Recently about a month ago, she took oath as a US Citizen. Now my question, is my visa type converted to F1 from F2B since my mom is already a US Citizen? Is it automatic that it will be converted to F1? Thank you and appreciate all your answers. Regards,
  13. when can i be considered as LPR for some jobs like USPS etc, the date of i526 approval or the date of receipt of temp GC, or any other date?
  14. Hi guys, So I'm just concern about my case. My husband filled the documents online (I-130) on Dec 26th, 2019. He's LPR. My priority date is: Dec 27th 2019. On our receipt it was written that our Service Center was California... but yesterday March 10th, we logged in on our Uscis Account, wrote a message to USCIS ONLINE, and they told us our new office was Potomac (we haven't recieve any notification yet). I got really confused about it, now, I'm not sure which processing time should I follow, Potomac or California?
  15. My spouse has had a conditional green card for some time now and after visiting her home country of Poland a few times, her family wants to visit us here in the US and see her world. Her family has some strong ties to Poland. They all have paid-off homes there, careers there, and some are studying there... but I continuously here it's basically impossible after someone used a B2 and ended up as an immigrant. Is there any chance at all? Besides the heartbreak at the airport, we don't have the money to throw at so many journies to the USA that immediately get turned around...
  16. Hello, I think I'm in a bit of a pickle and need some light shed on my thinking. I'm an LPR currently visiting my spouse abroad. My spouse has a valid tourist visa to US for which he applied before our nuptials. We think we want to start our life together in US, but not 100% sure... also, which route do we take? Filing I-130 online is the first logical step, but then what... I've read on few websites I can file I-130 from abroad and then decide if we want to go with AOS or consular processing, but how does it work in real world? 1. can he come to US on his tourist visa AFTER filing I-130 and then file for AOS from within when we decide this is where we want to settle? 2. do we file I-130 and proceed with NVC while he stays abroad and I go back to US? 3. Can he freely visit me in US while his paperwork is pending? 3. What consequences are we possibly facing going with option nr 1? Does the dreaded 90 day intent rule affect us even though we're already married? 3. Can we start process with NVC and have it transferred to USCIS in case he is physically in US by then? What's the best way to get all this done?
