  1. Hi there, my wife filed an petition for me last march. We received the NOTICE OF ACTION (Form I-797C) in march, which stated that they received the form and its processing. Later on within a week we received another letter which stated some login credentials for USCIS account and told us to activate the USCIS account. As required, we activated the account. Now I would like to know what's the next step? Its been a couple of months and still we didn't received any update. Please note the priority date is 17th March 2021 and the petitioner is a US citizen and visa type is CR1.
  2. Hello, My daughter is now 1 week here in the US. She entered with an IR2 visa. Now i'm not sure what to do or process next. I'm a US Citizen, my daughter is 13 years old. I'm not sure if USCIS will be mailing us her green card or a citizenship certificate or shall we apply for it. Please advise as I'm not too sure which guide to read as there's several contradicting guides in the USCIS website. Links to read is greatly appreciated.
  3. Hi, Just wanted to know if the USCIS send any letter after receiving petition and if it does, then how long does it take ? Thanks in advance.
  4. VisaJourney members, This is an official ongoing thread for people to post petitions related to changes in current immigration policies, procedures, laws, and executive orders. Since there have been an uptick in petitions for change in immigration, either due to COVID-19 or other means, the moderation team feels it would be best to have all of the posts and links in one thread. The benefits to having all the petitions in one thread is more oversight, more collaboration, easily accessible, and better maintenance. When posting in this thread, please follow these rules: Please only post petitions from official petition sites (no blogs, forums, or social media links). Please post full links to the petition. Please provide a brief description of the petition. Be as clear and concise as possible in the description. Only post petition related information as described above. Posting replies such as "I signed it." will add clutter to this thread. Please do not post frivolous petitions. Please do not oversolicit or badger members to participate in the petition. Keep things civil. No solicitations for donations or private information (names, phone numbers, etc). No political banter or ranting. All posts not adhering to this thread's rules and/or not petition related will be removed. Thank you, VJ Moderation
  5. Hello, I would like to petition my wife and my 3 year old kid to come here in the US. We are married for 4 years now. And I just came back here in the US last February 19, 2021. I am a US citizen and been working as a nurse for about a month now in New York. Am I too early to file for a petition? I know my salary is not enough now but my sister is willing to be the co sponsor. Hope to get answers about my inquiry. Thank you,
  6. Hello everyone, I am a USC. I'm preparing the i129F packet for my Fiance and I have some questions for those who've been in a similar situation of being a previous petitioner. In 2014 I got married overseas in Egypt and petitioned for my ex, he was approved for a CR1 visa. After a 15 month process my then-husband flew here the following year in July 2015 and we stayed with some of my family where I was currently living. Everything started off great until issues between he and my family started. Then he wanted us to move out on our own so he started looking for a job, met with managers but never got call backs. He arranged to go stay with a mutual close friend out of state because he claimed he was feeling uncomfortable living with my family. He also wanted to try getting work out of state there. I was very upset about the change in plans, it was not what I was expecting at all. This created a lot of issues between us. Within a few months of his arrival that happened and he was staying out of state. I later flew and stayed for a month with him and for the most part it was horrible for me, lots of fighting and not getting along. I returned home after and separated (informally), which he did not like. When we did talk it was still more fighting and then a week or 2 of no talking. After a month and a half to 2 months I tried to reconcile and I sent him a box of marriage therapy type books I had been reading, treats, amazon gift cards etc for him and some things for our friends family he was staying with. He is the type to hold a grudge about everything and didnt reciprocate trying to reconcile. After going through depression, I felt fed up and filed divorce a few months later the following year. Shortly after I filed he contacted me apologizing and wanting to reconcile and mentioned that he was considering coming back home. I paid for a 1 year family pass for the zoo (I have 2 kids from a previous Relationship) to have something to do together. I even added him as an authorized user to my credit card in attempt help him start building his own credit. After a few months he ended up not coming back, instead he suggested I and my kids move there with him, which I didnt feel it was right removing my kids from their life and family here. Then he suggested I move there with him and leave my kids here and i could visit them periodically, that I wouldn't have to work and he would take care of it all. I was definitely not about to leave my kids behind and move away just because he decided he wanted to stay living in another state. I knew that my state gives a 6 month period before divorce finalizes incase the couple reconciles and decides to cancel it. I let the divorce process continue without cancelling and I'm glad I did. Clearly it was not working out and we couldn't even agree on what state to live in. We divorced based on irreconcilable differences and it was finalized Dec 2016. He had to file a divorce waiver and remove conditions by himself and go the rest of the way without me. Fast forward, he attended his interviews, did his biometrics, gave them everything they wanted to know and was granted US Citizenship in the end. Now about my Fiance. We knew of eachother through a mutual female friend on fb 7 years ago but he and I never had contact back then. Over a year later He messaged me saying happy new year and gave advice about staying happy in marriage and sent a link but I never responded. I was married at the time and it wasn't my thing to talk to men even though he wasn't showing interest or trying to flirt or come on to me in any way. During my separation from my husband I contacted this man asking for help with translating some things. He happens to also be from the same country as my ex husband. So he finally responds back over a month later because apparently he was away in the military. We talk a little and he wants to block because he doesnt want to cause problems in my marriage. He had no idea that problems already were there and I was separated. It wasn't an issue any longer to me talking and being acquaintances. I let him know the current circumstances and then we didnt talk again for several days. We ended up excepting eachother as friends on fb several days later. While me and my ex were having problems and were separated, me and my now fiance were becoming friends. We became close, I considered him a best friend to me and he was there for me to vent a lot about the problems in my marriage. At the same time we started becoming attracted to one another and did like eachother but i didnt consider us as being officially dating or in a relationship. After my divorce became finalized I tried to move on with my life and went on to pursue a long distance relationship with my now fiance. But it wasn't entirely easy for me having been down this road of long distance relationship before and this whole process. I still had some fears of another relationship failing especially during that year after my divorce. I felt like all my heart, emotions, effort, time, etc. I put into my marriage and that whole process was for nothing in the end and it left me shattered inside. I feared this type of let down happening allover again. But I continued on having this new, long distance relationship. Several times we planned to meet in person but due to our work schedules and circumstances it became delayed. At the same time I felt like I needed this delay to fully heal and be whole again. In Nov 2020 we broke up for a short period without talking, due to other things. Mostly he felt the distance was becoming too much and felt that I was often purposely delaying our relationship even more from going foreward to the next step. Though he was trying to be patient through it all with me, we have had ups and downs over the last 3 years. Many times we talked about a future together and for the most part we get along great together and see eye to eye with many things in common. I also knew inside that I didnt want to pass him by and live with regrets later in life of what if. I arranged with work and got approval for vacation and flew to where he resides for work in Bahrain. This turned out being the best decision I could have made. We had an amazing time together. During that period we flew to kuwait to spend time with some of his family and I loved it. I took them each gifts and in turn they took me out and wanted to shop for me, my kids and my mom. They took me to dinner..it was really nice and they were so welcoming. After flying back to Bahrain I had one week left before returning home to the US. We talked about engagement before going to see his family and wanted to have it with them there and wanted to find rings in Kuwait but our trip was shortened due to missing a flight and having to schedule a later one and pay all over again, plus his work schedule.. he couldn't take more than just a few days off. So after returning to Bahrain, we shopped and purchased our engagement rings and became engaged Feb 28, 2020. Since then the pandemic picked up more and I havent been able to make another trip. I also work in a covid facility so it's been pretty hectic this past year and with my kids and my dad also getting covid and having to care for them too through it. Thank the Lord I have not had the virus yet. We have made some arrangements and discussed the details of our wedding and I know time is ticking and I need to file this now as it has to be within 2 years of meeting. I know that there are some red flags being I was married before and previously filed a CR1. Both are from the same country of Birth and Starting a relationship just after my divorce. I'm hoping for the best and just want to know if others have filed k1 after marriage and divorce, how did it go? I'm wondering if I will have to prove at some point the bonafides of my previous marriage. It's been just over 7 years since I had gotten married and just over 4 years being divorced. I've moved a few times and dont have much proof of anything left as he took whatever there was with him. Should I expect them to ask for some letter from my ex husband? Any thoughts or advice is appreciated.
  7. Hello, I have couple of questions and I hope you guys can help. My daughter is schedule for her interview in the US Embassy in the Philippines on February 19. I won't be there to accompany her but my mom would be there. Would that be a problem? On the letter it states "No other applicants and no petitioners will be allowed entry". That means she'll be alone inside the embassy. How long does it usually take? What could possibly be the interview questions? I read she has to hand carry all documents in original form. I filed online and of course I have the original supplemental documents such as my naturalization certificate and passport. Would a colored photocopy suffice? How long did the Medical examination took for both day 1 and 2? Is my mom considered as a legal guardian to accompany my daughter in her medical? Thank you all in advance.
  8. Hello My fiance and I want to get married this year and because of our school/work schedules and the pandemic, we dont have too many options. I would like to visit him for the summer (either the travel ban will be lifted by then or I'd quarantine somewhere and then go), we would get married there and I'd go back home. My problem is, I'd like to stay for about 2 months (I'm a student, so I only need to be back in september), but we'd like to get married and start the immigration process asap. We've been together for 3 years, long-distance the entire time. Is it legal for him to send out the I-130 petition while I am still in the states on esta, when I would definitelly go back home later in the summer? Eg. I'd arrive at the beginning of July, we'd get married within a week, send the petition mid July and I'd go back home late August? Thank you

  10. My I-864EZ is now long overdue. I am ready to file it. But how do I file it? Where should I send it? The link on the instruction from USCIS is not working. Please advise anyone.
  11. A friend of mine is planning to get married to a US citizen, wedding is scheduled to hold in Nigeria afterwards, they'd begin visa petition process. She was told by someone that they need to make a newspaper announcement of their wedding prior to the day. That it's to be used alongside other documents and photos proving their wedding is legal, for her future interview. Is this requirement necessary or not? Quote
  12. Hello All, Can you please help me with this one? Two years after my annulment in 2007, my mother petitioned me as an unmarried son. But a few months after our annulment, my ex-wife and I decided to live back together but did not remarry. Please note that we did not have the annulment (which cost around 150k PHP paid by my ex-wife's boyfriend) because of the petition. Actually, I wasn't that excited with the petition because I was already in my mid-forties then and I know these things take around 10 years. But why not? Anyway, all my brothers and sisters are living abroad and I'm the only one left in the country. And maybe I can get my ex-wife later on so we can remarry there. But my mother now is saying that my classification is no longer UNMARRIED because we are living in the the house which is still in both our names (conjugal property). We decided not to sell the house because my ex-wife's daughter's family was and still living with us. When we bought a car two years ago, it's also in both our names. And she, my ex-wife, called me "husband" in Facebook. This Facebook issue is a big thing according to her because the U.S. government can see this and have it as proof that we are still married. I told her that our' marriage was annulled and what we are in now is a common law marriage which our government doesn't consider as a legal marriage. Is my mother correct that my category should be MARRIED because of the conditions she mentioned? If she is, does that mean changing category will reset my petition, meaning I have to start from the beginning again?
  13. I am now filling up the Affidavit of Support I-864EZ. On the Federal Income Tax Info, I have filed my last 3 years' tax with my spouse. It says to provide gross income on IRS Form 1040EZ. The income indicated on our 1040EZ is a combination of mine and my husband's. Do I provide that on item 6a-c? Or shall I just get my gross from my W2?

  16. Hi All, I need help regarding the RFE I received recently for the application(I-751) I submitted in August 2018 to Remove conditions. They mentioned in the letter that the evidence provided is insufficient to prove a good faith marriage. They go on to mention that they have received the following from me Lease Joint Account Bank Statement (with one page of transactions) Tax returns. Photos, travel and affidavits And they failed to acknowledge receipt of the following other documents I submitted Health and life insurance which shows my name and my spouse's name. Joint Car insurance. Joint Costco membership card. Individual credit card statements. As they have mentioned not to submit copies of documents previously submitted. Should I submit the other 4 again? Looks like they lost these documents. Also, In addition to the above documents, I'm going to provide the following financial documents 6 months of Joint Credit Card Statements (Shows only my name in the statement, but my spouse is on it as well). Individual, Bank Statements (Checking and Savings) for a duration of 2 years showing the same Home address. Shared Utility Bill (Car Parking) for a duration of 2 years showing both names. Do I submit these documents the same way I submitted my application packet? Thanks for reading! Any help is greatly appreciated.

  18. Can someone please tell us where to send our petition I130 to? ive been residing in Bali Indonesia for 2 years now living with my wife. I still have a address in Colorado Springs, Colorado . I’ll be working and living in Colorado this coming May thru August then coming back to Bali to be with my wife. Since I was living outside the USA do we send I30 to Dallas or Chicago? And would it be better or any faster or safer to mail from the USA or hand in person to maybe a office in Denver ? I would use fedex or dhl from Bali Indonesia if not. And send it 3 day priority or something? Also do we can send photocopies of all documents in case it gets lost correct ? They don’t need originals? thanks
  19. Hello, My situation is: I'm a US citizen, never employed, and I'm dependent on my parent. they have been maintaining me my whole life. So I never filed taxes in my whole life. and I do not make any type of income ! nor I have any assets. The Case: I got married and my wife is filing AOS. For the affidavit, I had a joint sponsor filing separate i864. For my i864 I believe I'm required to attach a letter stating why I never filed taxes. what should be the reason to write, since I want it to look formal. I had this sample but I think it might need to be edited To Whom It May Concern I, ABCD, XXX's spouse and petitioning sponsor. I did not file any income tax return yet because I was and still dependent and maintained by my parents upon their income. Since I never had job or made any income of any type, I was not required to file an income tax return with the Internal Revenue Service. I, ABCD, certify under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States that the information I have provided in this statement are true and correct. Sincerely, ABCD help please or edit the sample Thanks
