Need advice regarding SSn/GC delivery situation

Nov 17th 2014
So I entered the U.S. on November the 7th, and left the country after a few days. I intend to get back in a few months.
Without having any relative/friends to rely on, I requested help over the Internet for someone to provide me with an address for GC/SSN delivery. A fellow compatriot lady was kind enough to give me the address that I presented at my visa interview.
I'm not sure if I should trust this person 100%,though she hasn't given me any reason not to.
I've read that someone in possesion...

Name on US Visa

Nov 16th 2014
My name on the US visa is spelled like this:
Surname: Name1
Given Name: Name2 Name3

If I remember correctly, when submitting the entry application for DV2014, I've written Name3 into the Middle Name box.
When paying the USCIS Fee, it asks for my middle name too. Should I enter a given name(Name3) or enter a compound First Name (Name2 Name3)....

Diversity Visa and F-T-J

Nov 13th 2014
There has been and continues to be a big misunderstanding with the Follow-To-Join option especially when it comes to CP. I think it's such a shame that some DV selectees are still being misguided and being told they can select the F-T-J option when processing CP contrary to the information that the U.S. Dept of States provides in one of it's Foreign Affairs Manual:

9 Fam 42.33 PN6.3 Following-to-Join Applicants
DV applicants are informed in the electronic notification of how...

Dear member
I lived in refugees camp for 4 years before I become a winner of 2015 DV.I already fill in about living in refugees camp at DS260 form honestly, but I don't have enough documents to show CO as evidence . I am thinking I should hide about living in refugees camp because I don't have enough documents .If I will not be able to show documents about living in refugees camp
,CO might suspect me.That is why I am now confused.Please tell me and help me what I should do .

DVD lottery, green card marriage and divorce.

Nov 11th 2014
My wife and I got married in 2010 when we were both on student visas ( F1 ). 2 years after our marriage (2012) she got selected for the DV lottery and we both got green cards. 2 years after that (2014) we are separating and getting a divorce. I was wondering if this will affect the naturalization process when I apply for citizenship?

Best regards.

In fairness, the US government try to prepare selectees’ minds for the possibility of not making it through the entire process by stating on the selectee notification letter that “selection does not guarantee that you will...
