Cant go to my country for green card lottery interview

Jul 26th 2016
Hi guys,
Luckily my wife was seleceted this year for DV2017
She and my kids are in my country but for some political reasons if i go there i may not be able to get out of the country for a while.

I want them to go ahead with their application and obtain the green card without me since i am not the selectee i think that is possible.
I am able to travel to u.s , got a visa until 2023 ...

Anyone who can suggest a solution will be highly appreciated ,

Jul 25th 2016
Hi all.

It has been a while since posting on these forums. Since our move to the US in January we have been very busy settling in and getting everything sorted. Loving it so far.

I am hoping that some one can give me some information regarding the Green Card for my Child.

My wife and I activated our Green Cards in March 2015 and had them sent to Australia. After that we had our son. When we arrived in Dallas in January 2016, my wife and I had our young 5 month old son with us.

When he...

Likely changes to immigration under Donald Trump?

Jul 25th 2016
There was a statement made by Donald Trump the other day, essentially saying:
French and Germans could face 'extreme vetting' before entering US because their countries have been 'compromised by terrorism'Click to expand... Well...there were several incidents over the past few days alone...apart from daily crimes committed by asylum seekers all over Germany.

I am infuriated about Germany's Chancellor Merkel's crazy policy on allowing in millions of alleged refugees and the strong leftist...

DV 2011 Interview at Montreal in October - placed in administrative processing 221g - how long wait?

Jul 23rd 2016
Both my wife and myself had applied for the DV2011 lottery. We were common-law in Canada when we applied in 2009. When we applied for the lottery, we included each other as spouse even though we were not legally married as there was no option for common-law in the lottery and we did not think we were single.

A few months back my wife won the lottery. So, while filling up forms we sent to Kentucky (we entered our marriage date as the date on which we had our common-law marriage - i.e....

Jul 14th 2016
I have been scheduled for an interview in august 2016. On my original entry I put my two daughters and husband but failed to add my 18yr old son becoz he was in boarding school and couldn't access him for a dv photo. I called my consular where my interview is scheduled and told them about my case,,, they said, that is very easy, and asked me to send them his birth certificate and passport copy and a small explanatory note. I did it and they sent me a link to fill in his DS260 form. I...

Living in the US and being selected

Jul 10th 2016
I've lived in the US for almost 10 years(legally) L2 visa and f1 visa currently and I was wondering - Upon applying for the Greencard Lottery does the system take into consideration if you have an American Address or not? Because I have applied for the past 3 years and haven't been selected. Just wondering if having U.S. address is a factor..

Hi guys,
I am freaking out right now.. Just received the police check for my husband and it showed that he had a common assault proved without conviction back in 2006. The result was bond to be of good behaviour for 12 months.
