  1. I'm new to this site so please pardon my ignorance on where to post my question. I'm an US citizen my wife lives abroad and she comes and goes back on a visa waiver esta program. On one of her trips we decided to get married and we did. Due to family business and her mother advance age she can't come and stay the time required for the green card application,she can't stay for more than a couple months at a time due a miriad of family and business issues. She keeps coming each time with her visa waiver but we want to correct that. My question is,Is there some kind of visa or something we can apply for so we don't have to be worried each time she comes raising red flags for her multiple entries? If we do it the regular channels she'll have to stay almost a year without going back which is impossible. Any suggestions? Thanks!!!
  2. Hi all I am a K1 Visa recipient and my husband and I are filing our AOS soon. I have a question regarding the required tax documentation on the I-864, Affidavit of Support. I understand that if we file AOS before the end of 2019 our most recent tax year would have been 2018, and we've got that. But if we file in January 2020, would our most recent tax year be 2019 already, thus requiring the proper documentation for 2019 instead? I ask because the company my husband works for doesn't send out W2s until February, but we REALLY don't want to wait any longer to file our AOS because my I-94 had been expired since October 22nd. We've planned to file this December 16th but something came up, and we might have to reroute the budget for that one onto something else.... sigh (I know, I know, we're filing late, but life happens and so here we are...) 😅 So I'm thinking: 1) Perhaps USCIS would allow the submission of 2018 records due to the fact that tax season for 2019 won't be over until April 2020 anyways? 2) Perhaps we could include an explanation on our cover letter as to why we're submitting 2018 records despite 2019 ending? So yeah, I would appreciate any input from anyone who can help. Thank you all
  3. 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
  4. Hello everyone! I am currently filling out my I-485 and I just needed clarification on a few items, if anyone can help: Note: I posted the same topic recently but put the wrong title in and forgot to add tags, plus I needed to edit the content. Apologies for the redundancy. If the site admins could delete my previous post, kindly do so. Here is the link of said post: Here are my I-485 queries: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Page 3 Part 1., 25.a.-25.c. - Provide your name exactly as it appears on your Form I-94 (if any) > I obtained my I-94 from the website and it only shows my first and last name. Does this mean I leave the Middle Name item blank, write N/A, or still write my middle name even if it doesn't show on the I-94? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Page 4 Part 2., 3.-4. > Is the Receipt Number the one formatted as such: WAC1990123456? > My NOA2 shows the Priority Date as blank. Should I put N/A? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Page 8 Part 6., 1. - "The term 'children' includes all biological or legally adopted children, as well as current stepchildren..." > My husband has a daughter from his previous marriage, but I have not legally adopted her and she's not his dependent. Is she included in the "stepchildren" clause? (I'm uncertain about the legality of the terms is all) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Page 13 Part 8., 63.b. - If your answer to Item Number 63.a. is "Yes," do you believe you had reasonable cause? > I answered "No" on 63.a. so this item should be N/A to me, but there are only Yes and No boxes. Should I check "No" anyway, write N/A, or leave it blank? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Any help is appreciated. 😊
  5. I initiated petition case for my husband in March 2018, He had his visa interview on 08/05/2019, was told he got approved and to wait for his passport to be returned to him in about 3 weeks, it’s been over two months now and he hasn’t received his passport, his case in the CEAC page shows ready for interview and it shows it has been updated several times, 09/30, 10/07, 10/08, 10/11 and 10/17, the embassy is only saying we have to wait and aren’t explaining what this means. We had a baby girl in May 2019 and he hasn’t been able to meet her. This wait is the worst.. Anyone experience something similar?
  6. Hello Had my interview on May 22 and got verbally approved, no extra documents were requested from me after, it's my 5th week and my status online shows ready status, case updates between once to twice a week, called Em once a week and always get same answer "wait for an email or text".Just wondering if anyone from Jerusalem embassy or tel aviv had the same experience, I read lots of threads and it seems normal but each country and case ofcourse is different,. Thank you in advance
  7. Hello all, I am in a dilemma at the moment. Initially they told us to be watching the Visa Bulletin for when it will get to our turn( For Family Based i30 Visa) Now we are told (and I checked online status as well) that the status is showing ISSUED. It was said to be issued in may 2019 This is where the confusion is. My son and his family still have their passports with them and they have not done any interviews also. I am lost here. Oct 2008 is the date. I need to know if anyone is in thesame category can say how the whole process happened! I am so lost. Consulate is Nigeria. Married Son of a US Citizen priority date October 2008
  8. My father's initial status was Administrative Processing after his immigrant visa interview on June 27. He had to submit a few documents like updated police certificate and family registry and i864-A so he was given 221g. After submitting the documents on July 17, my mother's visa went from READY TO ISSUED on Aug 1 and my father's visa went from AP to READY FOR INTERVIEW. The date has been updated a few times but case still ready for interview. No feedback from embassy. Please help if you know anything about this scenario!
  9. My Story: I came here Legally at age 4/5 on a tourist visa with my parents. We just over stayed the time we were given to stay. Fast forward to 2014, I graduated high school, started dating my now husband and went on DACA. Fast forward to 2018, I've renewed DACA about twice now, graduated college and have a steady job. I got married to my husband last year in 2017. A little info about my husband, he is a american citizen that is in the Army National Guard. Together we filed the I-130, I-485 and I-601 (recommended by someone, just in case) We sent in the paperwork together in April of 2018 and we are wondering what the process is from here on out. How long it took for others and if this is a relative simple process? Has anyone gone through something similar? What are some tips? We hope we filed the correct forms. Everyone's story is different and I respect that, I only want positive words and advice. Just trying to understand this process a little better. Thank you all.
  10. Hi my case was received on 6/7, it’s been more then a month but until now I can’t check my case status on uscis website, ever time I try it says validation error. I read somewhere it shows after biometrics, I’ve done my biometrics 4 days ago but still nothing, any had similar experience ?
  11. Hi all! I just had my interview at the US Embassy yesterday, July 9 2019 Tuesday. My visa was approved. I was wondering, when can I expect a status update on the CEAC website? When I check using the AA00****** code from the DS 160 under non-immigrant, it comes up as "No Status". When I check using my case number MNL2019****** under immigrant, it comes up as "Ready" like before, but it also says Case Last Updated: 9 July 2019. A lot of other people are getting AP status right after their interview, and it's been more than 24 hours since approval, so I don't know what to expect now. Please enlighten me. Thank you!
  12. I'm asking because I am not 100% certain my husband's visa was actually issued like the status says. What if it's some stupid glitch or something after the site was down for the updating of the DS 160 and 260? He was in AP for one week then the status changed to ISSUED the day after the application got updated. I feel like he's still in AP or something because we spoke to people who's visa was printed the same day his was and theirs were at Aramex within a couple of days. Yeah there were holidays that meant closings for the Casablanca consulate and Aramex but it didn't stop those other people from getting their visas quickly.
  13. Hello, A couple of weeks ago, I received the congratulation letter in the USA embassy as my DV was approved by the consular officer during the interview last Month. However, I have not yet got the issued visa status although the case status was already updated within a week after the interview and remained Ready not AP for weeks till now!!! Was the approval decision in the interview final? May the file review by an officer result in a conclusion different than the approval earned during the interview? What are the procedures usually taken by them during such time? How is this situation (Ready status) different than Administrative Processing? Advise about this situation, please! Thanks in advance.
  14. Hello, After we received NOA1 and NOA2, the USCIS sent our petition to the NVC for processing. After 36 days of no updates, I emailed the NVC on April 30th asking what was happening, they replied saying our petition was being forwarded to the Embassy in Santiago. We completed DS-160, and now checking our visa status on CEAC, it says "no status." Does anyone know what this means and under what circumstances we should expect it to change? Thank you! KA + BE
  15. the status in CEAC to change from "at NVC" to "In Transit"? I got the interview email yesterday and I was wondering does anyone know a general ballpark of when it'll say the file is no longer at NVC and is on the way to the consulate/embassy. Thanks!
  16. Good morning, I am adjusting status from F1 student through marriage. I am in the process of gathering I-130 and I485 packages. I see that on all forms there's an option to put USCIS online account #, I signed up online but can't find that number. Please advise. Thanks.
  17. Goodnight guys, So I sent all of the docs for a change of status to tourist, I sent a money order but just noticed I forgot to put my name on it. What will happen? Will I be denied because of it? Thank you for your attention :)
  18. Hi Everyone, I am curious to know from the K1 visa applicants that had their interview at the London Embassy in late November 26th - 30th, 2018. Has your visa status changed on the Ceac website? My status shows 'Administrative Processing' from the 3rd December as the last update, with the 'date created' as 29th November. I' know it's on a case to case basis, however, has your status changed to 'Issued' since? Many thanks!
  19. April filer ‘17. Anyone knows whats going on?? My interview was on 21st December i didn’t get AP and i was supposed to get the visa in 10 days but still nothing. My IV visa says “application received” as of 23rd jan. But it’s been more then 2 working days and the status still hasn’t changed.
  20. My Lawyer mailed the IV and AOS package on Wednesday Sept 26 2018, I'm impatient so I called on October 1st 2018 to confirm that NVC recieved the case, I was informed that they did received our case on Friday Sept 28 2018. I check out case daily I'm obsessed at least 100x lol. Anyway I see on CEAC status went from Action required: send requested documents to At NVC and also our AOS fee section disappear. From research I see when the AOS fee disappear and status change to At NVC you can assume your case is complete. So I called NVC and I was informed that our case was in fact complete.....yaaaaay so we are in line for a interview to be schedule and case to then be sent to embassy. Just waiting for notification of the update.
  21. Hey, Wanted to drop this here to see if anyone else is experiencing any timing problem with their Adjustment of Status. I'm a Haitian citizen living in Brooklyn. I started with a student visa here in 2008. Then after the earthquake, i switched to I-821/I-765. I filed for my I-485 (petitioned by my wife) in August of last year. After sending a few files back and forth and paying for all the fees, by November or so, all fees were paid and all files were sent. I was sent my new I-765 card with parole (to travel) while my case is pending. But I havent heard back from them since. It's getting close to a year now. Anyone else experiencing unusual delays with the processes? Or is it jut me? Ad I'm aware that with the current administration and my being Haitian, things my be delayed on purpose too. But, let me know if you guys experience the same thing, have advice, or tips. Thanks!
  22. Hi everyone! I passed my n400 interview last Tuesday and the IO told me to expect an oath letter this week. My question is that, should I expect an online notification/status update on my account when the oath letter is mailed to me? Right now, my current status says (we scheduled your interview). thanks!
  23. What is the status of a person that had filed to change from a B1/B2 visa to an F1 while they wait for the process. Is that person technically considered as illegal if their 6 month initial stay on the tourist visa had expired? Or what will their status be?
  24. Hi, I filed for my greencard in Chicago from a K1 visa AOS (november 2017) and got my work permit card on the mail and everything. My bio appt. happened in december but I haven't received any notices for an interview on the mail and my I-485 never changed from "fingerprint fee received". I sent out an inquiry about the status of my case but no answer so far. Is anyone else going through the same thing? Is there anything else I should do?
