Register for 2016 lottery while I am waiting for 2015 interview

Mar 25th 2015
Hi, I was selected for 2015 lottery but I submitted my DS forms late (September 2014). I wish to register for 2016 lotter as well just to increase my chance in case I can not get the visa for 2015. Is there any problem if I register for 2016 lottery while I am waiting for 2015 interview?

Hi forum

It seems like such a long time since I made a post, or even visited the forums (there are so many unread posts to read! I might have to skip over a few of them). I wanted to just post and wish you all well as I know May is not too far away for all the new applicants of last year. I have stayed true to my promise to focus on my studies (while still having the USA floating around in my imagination in the background!) I graduate next year and will complete my research then also....

Social Security Number on DS260

Mar 22nd 2015
I have a SSN number that was issued on a previous travel to USA with a J1 VISA....this was issued like 10 years ago....So on the DS260 I completed that I have one but don't know the number...
Anybody know what type of verification they do? They check the SSN, stuff like credit report, credit history or they don't care about that stuff...I'm just concerned about this stuff because my identity was stolen and got some credit issues it appears i have some debts and some accounts went to collection....

Tracking GC delivery via USCIS ELIS

Mar 21st 2015
Hi folks,

I have successfully moved to southwest Florida about a month ago and I'm waiting to receive the plastic Green Card in mail. I was wondering if the USCIS ELIS system where as folks remember had to pay your Immigrant Fee after you've received your visa but before you moved the US, can be used to track progress on delivery of your plastic card. My status as well as all of my family members is currently "In Process". Those of you who have already received your cards in mail, can you...

DV Based AOS - Self Process vs Using Legal Services

Mar 13th 2015
Xenon_writer said: oh so you were serious .. no i did not reach out to congress person. But in today's INFOPASS they handed over the interview letter. When she asked why was this delay even for DV cases then they just said it depends upon the individual case and it does not matter if it is DV or something else. I guess they have less knowledge about DV cases in Washington DC field office.Click to expand... Yeah some USCIS support centers may not be aware of the latest...

DV lottery 2015 winner

Mar 10th 2015
I am a 2015 DV lottery winner together with my family. Since I am having some issues, unfortunately I have to go alone and leave my family. I have some questions to all of you kind people:
1. If the family don't come with me, will they lose the green card?
2. If I go, stay there 45 days, get the green card and then go back to my country as soon as I will be given the green card and then travel to the US and spend only some weeks every year, will it cause any problems? Will I still be able to...
