  1. My wife (AUS) just got her visa approved this month, and we're moving from Australia to the US in May. We're planning to go to Dallas to set up, and we want to ship our belongings, but finding out general costs to just ship things isn't working very well without a well defined manifest. We're looking to send general household goods, and we might send some flat pack furniture (only about 1500 new) but we'd like to just pack some stuff up in like a 2x2x1 meter crate if we're going to do that. Has anyone done anything similar, or should we just sell off furniture for whatever we can get for it and buy new in the US and send our smaller goods by smaller package sea chests? Any companies people have had good experiences with? Thanks!

  3. Hi guys, I’m a permanent resident who got married abroad to a U.S. citizen. We moved to the U.S. and got separated after a little over 4 years, and are now divorced. I’ve been together with my new girlfriend for almost 2 years now and want to ask her to marry me. My question is: what paperwork do I need to submit? We live in Texas, and I can’t find any good resources as to what this state requires from ME, as a permanent resident. Does anyone here know? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! Happy living

    How to marry in texas

    Just wondering if anybody can answer my inquiry. Here's my query, does a filipina married in the Philippines who is naturalized british citizen but divorce with her exhusband in UK can marry a filipino citizen staying in Texas, USA holding tourist visa? If yes, how and where? Thank you in advance for you reply!
  11. How can I find my FBI criminal records? Or how can I find all of my criminal records for Texas and Louisianna? Please provide links if possible. Thanks in advance!
  12. Does anybody know why would my I-130 application be sent to the service center that does not service my state? I am in Virginia and the application was supposed to be sent to Vermont but I got a receipt from Texas. Thank you in advance!
  13. Does anyone know what is going on with the Dallas office? It has been over a year since my husband's case is awaiting interview. Is anyone else in the same boat? Is anyone seeing any movement on their case or others?
  14. Hi all - just got a FedEX email notice of a mailed envelop from DSHS (looks like it is coming from my birth state, TX). Seems like this is related to our K1 visa application we submitted in March. Why would I be getting this, and not my fiance (beneficiary)? Did I miss something? Do I need to go for med tests as well? No longer a resident of TX so this seems a bit off. Out of town so won't get the letter until Tuesday - hoping someone knows what this is and can relieve my anxiety before then... Many thanks!
  15. Hi everyone, does anyone have a clear idea where my petition will be processed? My boyfriend lives in Pennsylvenioa so i would guess Vermont, but here and there I read that all K1 petions go to California office. Even if the USCIS website says that all offices process K1 visas... And most important question...how long will it take? I read 4 6 9 months...it is very confusing... Thanks for your feebacks
  16. I sent my I-129F visa packet 3/8/2018 to the Texas Service Center, and the expected delivery date was 3/12/2018. Today is 3/21 and I haven't gotten any updates. Unfortunately, I did not send it 2-day priority so I do not have a tracking number but I did include the G-1145 E-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance. Should I be concerned already? I noticed most people get a NOA1 within a weeks time..
  17. Hello this is probably a dumb question - but my fiancee and I just mailed off our K1 application to the Texas service center. I checked their website for processing times but the chart confuses me... https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/processingTimesDisplay.do Is it indicating that they are currently working on K1 visas from back in July? Thanks!

    Hey everyone, I received the NOA2 January 10, 2018. I just looked on www.uscis.gov to see my case status today, it says "Case was sent to The Department of State." One month later. My question is how long does it take for the case to reach the visa center from Texas Service Center? Online, it says the case was sent on February 1, 2018.
  19. New to this website! i find it quite confusing not going to lie ANYWAYS! Here's my "story" So i met my husband overseas, i tried to get a tourist visa but got it denied We're married now and im an italian/colombian citizen and came to Colombia to be closer to him since he got transferred to San Diego ..my husband is in the US navy and currently deployed since October '17..he filed a I-130 a couple of days before leaving and we have a lawyer helping us with the process and asked to expedite our case, with many months apart the least we would like is me being in port waiting for my husband. Now i obviously got the receipt 2 weeks after the forms were sent and my husband being so impatient constantly messages our lawyer if theres anything we can do to speed up the process. I'm a big traveller and know visas take a long time and work .. On the USICS processing time page i find it so confusing to understand whats going on..Our lawyer sent our application to Texas Service Center but the receipt is from Nebraska Service Center OCTOBER FILERS...do you have any idea when we could be hearing from immigration? also is there really any different treatment for military? This process is a roller coaster i just can't wait to get off

  24. Hi all, I've read about various experiences about getting a driver's license during the AOS largely depends on the state (and the driver licensing office), wonder what y'all might advise will happen next: Crossed into Texas on a K1 Visa in August Applied and received SSN in September, opened a joint bank account Applied and received a TX driver's license (expires with i94 in November) Married in October Submitted Adjustment of Status in November Took pending AOS notice along with expired DL for renewal DL renewal application was sent to second verification at the licensing office and was advised to wait for next steps in the mail One of the issues noted at the DLO was the agent was unsure of what was the expiry date for the pending application. On the initial DL application, it was clear to the agent to submit the i94 date. Also the BIG BOLD letters that the notice "did not provide any immigration benefits or status" caused the agent to have hesitation about the notice providing sufficient lawful presence. Any thoughts on what to expect next? TIA!
  25. I have submitted my AOS and my husband has a friend who is hosting a Concealed Carry License class. I want to get mine and I am wondering if anyone knows if I can do it while still awaiting my Green Card and AOS. The TxDPS website states that; ”Yes. Subject to the requirements of federal firearms law, and if not otherwise ineligible, resident aliens and certain nonimmigrant aliens who are legally present in the United States may obtain the license.” But I just wanted to know if anyone else has done or tried to do this?
