  1. Hello- just wondering what exactly determines where your I-130 goes to get processed. I'm feeling a little disappointed because I live in New England and was told my petition would likely go to Vermont. I just recently received the receipt and it is in Virginia. Vermont has a much quicker I-130 processing time compared to Virginia's center and I don't know why I was sent to Virginia. I called USCIS and they told me your residence does not actually determine where your petition is sent, but rather your spouse's country of residence. I hope to get some insight on this! Thanks!
  2. Hello forum. We just submitted form I-751 to remove conditions on my husband's greencard and forgot to include a copy of his current greencard, which is required with the application. I called the National Customer Service Center and they weren't able to tell me definitively what will happen, but in theory there is a chance our application will be denied. For anyone else who has ever forgotten this item or anything else with their I-751, what was your experience? Did they return your entire application or just send you a request for more info? Did you have to pay your $680 fee twice? Did it jeopardize your entire ability to remove conditions? How much of a delay did this cause? Our application went through the Vermont service center. Any info is helpful.
  3. Hi guys! I filed I 360, 485 concurrently in Vermont in March 2017. I360 approved in September 2017 and transferred October 2017 to the San Diego field office. Since then no action has been taken on my case. Is someone else in a similar situation ??? Why does it take soooooooo long
  4. 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!

    CR1 I-751 Vermont-Charlotte

    Hello, I would like to know if someone has received the green card for 10 years, how many months did you wait to get it, I had my Biometric appointment at September 2017 in Charlotte North Carolina, I got my letter that says I can travel and work...my case was on Vermont and now I took a look on the USCIS website and it says this: On February 27, 2018, we received your Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence at your local office. If someone is in my same situation or received the 10years green card, please I will appreciate your answer. Thank you!!
  6. So, my wife's 2 year anniversary on the temporary visa is up on May 15th, 2018. We sent off her package on MARCH 26th from New York City (Manhattan) and was told to expect it to arrive by MARCH 28th. On April 4th we decided to just check the tracking to make sure they had it by then. We were surprised to see that the package was delayed and was sitting in a Bronx facility and was scheduled to be shipped out. I called the post Office but the hold time was 1 hour and 54 minutes so I just let it go. Checked today again and the package is STILL in the Bronx. In checking the history, it looks like it has been all over the place EXCEPT Vermont. Looked like it was shipped back to us. Keep in mind, the postage price was provided to me by the clerk. I handed her my card to charge it. She charged it. She provided me a tracking number and a snip of the Vermont address. What could possibly wrong? April 7, 2018, 8:13 am Arrived at Post Office BRONX, NY 10472 The package is delayed and will not be delivered by the expected delivery date. An updated delivery date will be provided when available.

  7. 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
  8. What are all the fees needed to be paid after I-130 approval for child of U.S citizen mother under 21 (one boy is 14 and another is 17). I haven't been approved yet, but I want to prepare financially. I've only just started, application was sent to Potamac service center, although I'm not sure if that center is slow or not for IR-2 ; they received it on Feb 6th (don't have physical NOA1, but I did call and they gave me the receipt numbers that says received on feb 6th so that's probably my PD)
  9. Here are a few thoughts about moving to Vermont on a K1 visa. When I was doing my research, I did not find a lot of information specific to Vermont, so maybe this will help someone. Social Security Administration - this was very painless both when I first applied and when I went in to change my name after we got married. I had all my paperwork prepared according to their website and the VJ guide, and I did not encounter any issue at all. I used the Burlington, VT SSA office, and it was quite easy. I went in, got a number, waited for my turn for about 10 minutes the first time and about 20 minutes the second time. A very nice lady took my application and paperwork, asked some question about it and then informed me that I would get my social security card in the mail in two weeks. I got it within the week both times. DMV - I first scheduled my written test using their General Information Phone Number and was able to get an appointment relatively quickly (within two business days). I went into the South Burlington office, and I got an application form at the check-in desk and proceeded the Exams office. After filling in my application and having my required paperwork with me, I took my exam on paper (their online system was out of order for the day). I passed the test, and he was sent back to the check-in desk along with my application and the paperwork. I got a number and waited to be called. I waited for maximum 5 minutes, and I was then invited to one of the counters where a lovely lady took my application. She informed me that I could not get a drivers license with an expiration date extending over the expiration date of my I-94 which was the proof of my lawful status at the time. She then proceeded with my application, and I got a learner's permit, expiring on the same date as my I-94. She also let me know that I could schedule the road test as soon as I felt ready to take it. I was able to make an appointment for the road test using their online scheduling form, and a week later I went in, together with my husband. For the road test, you must be accompanied by another person, over 25, with a valid drivers license. The guy I took the road test with informed me once again that the expiration date on my drivers will have to match the I-94. The road test consisted of verifying that the emergency brake works, driving around a bit, a hill start, turning around according to the VT drivers manual and parallel parking. I passed, and I went back to the check-in desk. I got a number, and I barely got to sit down and was called to one of the counters. Now, this is where it gets very interesting. The guy processing my paperwork was, it seemed to me at least, familiar with the K1 visa and the process of adjusting status. He asked me if I had applied and if I got my EAD already. I said that I had applied but did not have the EAD yet, though I had my I-797C forms. He checked his manual, verified with his supervisor and then let me know it was good that I had the I-797C on me because based on it I can get the two years permit. This saved me from being stuck at home not being able to drive for a while until I got my EAD, an extra trip to the DMV and surely some money for a new permit. Getting Married - This was the easiest of all. You don't need a social security number, and it is as easy as going to the city hall and getting the license. Changing my last name was pretty easy too. There's nothing on the marriage certificate that indicates the name change. Based on the marriage certificate I was able to change it with the SSA and get the drivers license in my married name. All my AOS/EAD/AP paperwork was filed in my married name as well. Until I get to change my passport to the new name, I will need to carry the marriage certificate with me whenever I need to prove identity. Keeping busy - this is not related to the visa process at all but has contributed to my sanity during the first few weeks after I moved. Being stuck and home in freezing weather I was very excited to get a library pass and have access to many, many free resources. The Green Mountain Library Consortium has a rich collection of online resources. All I had to do for my library pass is to go into my local library with my ID and some mail proving I'm a resident. It was very heartwarming to discover how friendly Vermont people are, and how they mostly want to help you. I just got the appointment for the biometrics, and once I learn more about the process, I will post updates. If anyone else has tips or thoughts about this, please reply to this thread.
