Difficult situation regarding my daughter

6 hours 1 min ago
On October 1st, 2013. I registered on the E-DV website for me, my wife, my son (15) and my daughter (20). Then on May 1st, 2014 i was informed that i had been selected for further processing for the fiscal year 2015, by that time she was already 21 years old, which would've mean that she had lost her beneficiary status, but then i read something called CSPA, i did the math and it should give my daughter some time until March 2015 before getting aged out.

But....Because my CN is AS13,6XX. it is...

Won DV, have dual nationality, was born in a non eligible country, also my parents.

Jan 23rd 2015
Hi,
I won the DV lottery, using a Spanish passport, got the nationality through my grandparents (Civil War Refugees). I did all the process, had the medical exam, fingerprints, paid for everything, and now it appears it is going to be denied (at the time of the interview) because my parents were also born in a non eligible country and the Spanish citizenship was obtained through my grandparents.

Is this right? Is there anything I can do? - They told me to wait for further instructions...

I-134 Legal Responsibility

Jan 23rd 2015
I am a little confused about the responsibility difference between I-864 and I-134, I know in DV lottery cases only I-134 is required and not I-864.

My brother who is married (with three kids) won the DV lottery. Now he wants me to sign form I-134 to assist them in gaining the green card. I need to understand my legal responsibility towards them if I sign the document.

Most likely they wont need my assistance, but I need to understand what will happen in the following cases:

- If they have a...

Out of US for 15 months advic

Jan 23rd 2015
Hi! I was successful in the 2013 Lottery and travelled to the US in September of 2013 for a month to find an apartment, (hopefully) line up a job, sort out bank accounts, drivers license etc before I came back to Australia to tie up loose ends here before making the permanent move.
I was not able to find a job while there in September (I have a small business so was still self sufficient and not worried) but when I travelled home I suffered a major & unavoidable financial blow and was not able...

Final DV2014 CEAC Data

Jan 22nd 2015
OK - once again I would like to thank and recognize Rafikbo76 for his efforts and generosity in making the CEAC script available for us to use. It has been very useful in watching the progress of the DV process through these data extracts and hopefully the process will be less mysterious because of this. Well done Rafik!


Here is the "final" DV2014 data file. In theory there could be some updates to the CEAC data in the next day or two - but pretty much this is our ending position. As you can...

Public charge requirement

http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/86988.pdf

Apologies if I have somehow duplicated this, but I don't recall seeing this entire document linked to before.
The link above goes to the official document on public charge. A chunk of it is not relevant to DV but there is also a lot that is, including how they decide on this aspect, the number and combination of factors they take into account, what evidence they look for in the absence of a I134, how they actually assess an I134,...

LND Embassy Interview Experience

Jan 20th 2015
Hi All. Just wanted to share my DV2014 lottery experience. It has been quite a ride! Applying, waiting for the results and then spending another 15 months wondering if my number will ever get current, despite history laughing in my face and saying: “ NO WAY DUDE! FORGET IT!”

First of all, huge thanks to the forum CREW!

Simon your input, patience, DV expertise and commitment are uncanny! To simply put it:

Traveling to US after receiving the GC

Jan 18th 2015
Hello !

My husband and I winned the GCs in DV2014. After the interview approval, we travelled 2 weeks in Hawaii to activate the GC (it took us only 10 min - no waiting time!), and luckily, only 3 weeks after the GCs were sent to a friend's address in US. We are currently living outside from the US and we have our passport stamped with visa valid for 1 year.
So here is my question. At the airport, the immigration officer told us that once the GC are mailed, the stamp in the passport is no...

Cross Chargeability

Jan 17th 2015
In 2010 I applied to one of these online DV lottery organizations and paid a onetime fee which allows them to submit my application into the United States Diversity until my name is picked. They also advised me that I'm eligible enter this lottery due to my parents nationality at time of my birth.
What I would like to know is, am I eligible to legally apply for residency through ‘cross chargeability' or is this rule for the DV lottery only?

I am first generation Canadian born of Italian...

Name on birth cert doesn't match mothers real name

Jan 16th 2015
I have an issue with my case and I’m not sure how to proceed.

My wife left our country more than 10 years ago (when she was single), because her life was in danger. She came to UK where I was living at that time (as asylum seeker). She was so scared, she didn’t was to use her name at all, in case they track her there. When she fell pregnant, she used a different name to register with GP, and eventually she gave birth. On the birth certificate, she listed the name that she registered with the...
