Is a scam website?

Sep 19th 2014
Hi All,
I just paid $59 for this service only to find out it is NOT the official US federal government website. I have 2 questions.

1. Can someone tell if my information is safe with this website?

2. Should I reapply through the official website (since if an application is filled twice you are disqualified)?

Thanks so much,


DV2015 - Visa timing and name changes

Sep 19th 2014
I am a DV2015 winner and have a few questions regarding my particular circumstances. I am hoping people can share their experiences to provide me with some guidance. Sorry in advance for the long post!
Firstly, when I entered DV2015 I was married, and included my husband on the application. I was divorced in September this year, which will become official in October (which is when I will receive my divorce certificate). I submitted my DS-260 in mid-June; however I have not yet received a...

Blurred fingerprint on my green card

Sep 17th 2014
Hi guys, I have finally gotten my green card after a looooooong wait. But, there is one problem with it. My fingerprint in the bottom right corner is all blurred. Does it affect anything? I need to travel soon, and my temporary DV stamp in my passport will expire. So I am afraid I won't have enough time to replace the green card before travelling, and that I will have trouble getting back in if I don't replace the green card. Has anyone had this problem before?...

Need help on I-90 application (Replacement of GC)

Sep 15th 2014
Hi guys,

I need your help before filing an I-90 application.

On August 7, 2014, and my wife's greed card had been produced and mailed.

On August 11, 2014, the card was undeliverable as addressed and being returned.

On September 15, 2014, I called USCIS to follow-up, and the immigrant officer said that they have not yet received the returned green card. The officer suggested that I could either keep waiting or filing an I-90 application immediately, since it would take 8 to 9 months to...

Married after the original entry!

Sep 10th 2014
Hi All,

This is my first post here, so please forgive if I repeat.

My number was current for October but I did not receive an interview letter, so I hope I will be interviewed in November.

One thing that I worry about... I have been living with my husband since we knew we were going to have a son, which is more than 6 years. But we only got married on April the 4th, 2014. I didn't include him in my original DV entry as a spouse, as we did not have a document to prove it. Later on I added...

Change the address where the green card is going to be sent

Sep 5th 2014
Hey everyone,

So today I crossed the border, gave the sealed envelope and everything and went back home because I still have a few things to settle. I plan on moving for good this winter.

At the border I asked the officer to change the address where the green card is going to be sent, but she told me I couldn't do that there, that I had to do it online... But I can't find where exactly, she wasn't very helpful..

Could you guys help me out ?

Thanks a lot
