  1. Hi everybody! I’m a green card holder & I work from home. During the COVID-19, I barely go out, kinda scared to end up in a US hospital, can’t afford it... so I wanted to go in France to be with my family to at least make the best of it. My question is does anyone of y’all ever went out of the USA for 6 months? I’m not sure how long I will be gone but I can’t find the answer anywhere they do say more than 6 months per year can hurt you if you want citizenships but nobody knows if it’s 6 months in a row or 6 months total in a year. I called USCIS the lady didn’t even know! She said she THINKS it’s in a row but wasn’t sure. Let me know if you know something please! thanks
  2. Hello all, As most of you are aware, ICE announced yesterday that F1 student visas could not remain in the US if the University where they're studying decides to move the classes online. I am working on CTP, and I am enrolled in a hybrid program. My school announced that: "there has not been time for a decision to be made. The school will inform all students, staff, and faculty when a further decision has been made." Here is my dilemma, my wife (US Citizen) and I sent the AOS package to USCIS Chicago locker box lest week, awaiting NOA1. If my University goes online-only, which means I will have to leave the US. I have read that if I leave the United States without advance parole will abandon the I-485 application and will likely have trouble reentering. If I stay, I will lose my F1 status. Is anyone in a similar situation? Or can you give any valuable input? Thank you for your time.
  3. Hi guys I’m super confused right now. I applied for I-751 last May and heard nothing until October when I completed fingerprints at local office. Yesterday I checked the older uscis site and noticed my case status updated to “another office has jurisdiction over your case” . I checked the new website today and the attached image is what they’re showing. So kinda conflicted statuses I have tried searching for answers but can only find stuff on combo applications of Roc and N400 I haven’t submitted N400. I’ve not applied for N400 yet. I called USCIS and spoke with tier 2 who told me my case was still at Nebraska and the first update was just an officer transferring my case to some other part of the service Center. anyone any ideas what’s going on or had similar things happen. My case has no red flags and we are still happily married with nearly two year old son.
  4. Hi, I'm currently applying for Adjustment of Status and my I-765 is highly overdue, and I have a job offer for a summer job that wants me to start filling out forms. Now I know I'm not allowed to work until I get my work authorization approved however I've been waiting since Late July of Last 2019, There was a bit of a hold up with one RFE that I sent in last month however I've heard nothing since. I was wondering if I was allowed to fill out the tax information like the W-4 without getting into trouble, I wouldn't start working until the 13th of June so I have a lot of time but I didn't know if that would make me ineligible if I give my to-be-employer my information to be ready by then. I think I'll get my I-765 approval by then but I don't want to jeopardize my application. Basically I'm asking weather if giving my would-be-employer the necessary information for them to be ready to employ me would harm or make me ineligible in my immigration process. Cheers, Hamish
  5. Hello! My fiance recently got an email that his visa was ready to be issued and we needed to submit some updated documents. When we check on our case status online, it says "Refused". Is this because they need those documents or is it refused all together?
  6. 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
  7. Hello, my Fiancé just had his interview and we are a bit confused with the CEAC status. I checked it by using the case # given by NVC and selecting IMMIGRANT VISA... Status says READY He checks it using the ID# on the DS-160 and selects NON-IMMIGRANT VISA and the status is "NO STATUS". So which is it? Why do both work? His interview went well but they asked for our additional proof of relationship/contact and pictures (which he handed over) and they gave him a 221g white form saying "Admin Review" and we will call you in 2 weeks. Gave him his passport back. Does anyone know what's going on? Or which status is correct? Thank you, Andie
  8. 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!!!
  9. 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
  10. 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. 😊
  11. 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?
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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!
  15. 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.
  16. 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 ?
  17. 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!
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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!
  22. 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.
  23. 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 :)
