  1. Hello everyone, I have a very specific question due to my adjustment of residency case that was denied two and a half years ago in November 2017 that I can't find any answers to, not even asking the embassy in my home country. I came to the US in 2016 on a J-1 and married my long term boyfriend (US Citizen) before my visa period was over in the US. We went through the whole process of applying to register permanent residency of a US-spouse and were denied one year later because of the lacking waiver to the 2 year home country requirement. We went back to Europe, first to Sweden and then back to my home country Germany where we have been living since last year now. Now that those two years have passed, we wanted to apply again (we never appealed the decision back in 2017). I was wondering if there is a shorter and less money consuming process than doing the whole thing again with maybe reopening the old case? If anyone has some experience with this very specific type of visa-denial and forms of applying again, I would be entirely grateful! Thank you guys beforehand for taking the time in reading and answering this.
  2. Hi, I just received my conditional green card about a month ago through marriage (from F1) and wanted to know it I’m considered now a California and thus eligible for in state tuition or do I have to live here for a certain amount of time. I moved to California exactly a year ago. Thanks you in advance!
  3. Hello all! We are waiting for my husband's interview date at this time and are looking to prep for the final step of this process! What kinds of questions can he expect? Do we need to provide proof of our relationship even though our I-130 was approved? Will they be examining our relationship? What kinds of things should he expect and prep for during the interview? Anyone who has gone through this process specifically in Guatemala able to offer any insight? Thanks!
  4. Facts: arrived as a tourist 20 years ago (meaning legal entry) Apply for asylum after 365 days and a Withholding of removal was granted instead. After all those years a citizen brother (sibling) filed a I130 and still on process on regular time. Question is: after the I130 is approved if so, and I'm into American soil with social, alien number, work permit... I need to wait for a visa to come to this country to adjust the status from the withholding to the residency? Or there is a kind of short cut because I'm already into the system?
  5. I'm from Argentina and we are getting married here to start the CR1 visa after. Getting the argentinian residency after marriage is quite easy and I was wondering if it helps the CR1 process having the residency from the country of the us citizen partner. Maybe it works as proof of our marriage that we can submit with the package. What I'm scared of is that getting it may be a problem or not help at all (we wont do it if it's unnecessary).
  6. Hello everyone! I (US citizen) just married my sweetheart last week in Amman, Jordan Prior to that, I lived in Jordan for the past 19 years, then in the past 6 months before most recently coming back to Jordan, I was back in the USA doing job interviews to set up a domicile, and will hopefully be starting work as a physician there in July. Reading everyone's experiences here and online research makes it clear that DCF is the best option to bring my wife back home with me quickly. I have an appointment to file I-130 next week at the USCIS office in Amman, and was curious: 1. For physical address in the past 5 years, I had lived at the same address in Jordan but as I mentioned I was traveling around the USA on job interviews for the past months. The address in Jordan was still available to me at this time, so I'm wondering what to put in that field. In other words, should I put all of the addresses of hotels, Airbnbs, etc. over the past 6 months, or just the address in Amman? 2. Regarding the residency requirement in the country in which I'm filing DCF, would I meet the requirement, considering the many years I was in Jordan, and that I have Jordanian citizenship as well? I'm asking in particular about this most recent stint in the US to establish my career and our domicile, does that have any effect on the requirement? Warm regards to all of you, and thanks in advance!
