My 2014 DV process – Asia (consular)

At the very end of September 2012 I decided to sign up for the “green card” lottery, I said to myself why not, honestly not hoping for much, who would just give away a green card I was thinking.


*Note to first timers- signing up to the lottery is free of charge, and very simple all you need is 1 scanned 5x5 passport pictures and some very basic information. DO NOT PAY any fee, the registration is completely free.

I didn’t think too much about the...

OCI Confusion - Travisa or BLS????

Aug 29th 2014
I need to reissue the OCI for my son since he got a new passport. I started on the Travisa site and printed all instructions. But then I am seeing notes that OCI handling has been switched to BLS. Which one is it - Travisa or BLS?

If it is still Travisa, the second step on the OCI instructions say -

LCA or H1b amendment for address change?

Aug 28th 2014
Hello,

My client is changing their office within 4 miles radius (same state, but different zip code). I am sticking with the same employer, same client & same responsibilities. I consulted with my HR team and an attorney regarding H1B amendment for this address change. They say that LCA amendment is alone required and we don't have to do H1b amendment. I plan to go for stamping next year and I am concerned that it should not be a bottleneck.
Can you friends shed some light on this please?...

1 month visitor entry with no EOS/AOS

Aug 28th 2014
My mom left end of March after 6 month stay and came back now after 5 months and at immigration the officer said "since u asked 1 month I will give u 1 month entry" and when she asked if she can stay longer, she added a "no EOS/AOS"......

What do I do now? I am a US citizen and want her to stay for 6 months? I can file GC.

(1) Is it possible for her to leave in a week to meet cousin in UK or back to INDIA for a week and re-enter again? Or leave INDIA at end of the month and re-enter after...

Best Practices for applying for Naturalization

Aug 27th 2014
Here are few best practices for applying for Naturalization

(1) File only after 5 years of getting Green Card.

Reason -> Within 5 years of giving green card, USCIS can rescind your green card very easily if they find that you were given a green card by mistake. After 5 years, the process is cumbersome for USCIS and they have to take you to courts.

(2) File after 6 years if you expect any question about not sticking with original employer before, during or after getting green card.

(3)...

Newark (lyndhurst) office applicants 2014

Aug 27th 2014
Had my interview a month ago. The asylum officer was very nice and had great patience in hearing out my story and fears. Despite my stress and worries about having to go back to my home country and face persecution, it turned out to be a really pleasant experience at the asylum office.

Anyhow, told to come in after 2 weeks to pick up the decision at the end of the interview but the officer called at the last minutes to change it to a mail-in (think coz I'm in status).

Anybody in a similar...

Did I leave this too late (re: Citizenship/GC renewal)

Aug 27th 2014
I'm a British citizen living in the States and my 10 year regular US green card expires at the end of November. I am debating whether to get a 10 year extension or apply for citizenship. (I know the pros and cons of each and I'm fairly easy either way although I'd prefer to get the latter)

From posts I have read, if I apply for citizenship, I gather I might be liable to pay for a GC as well - as my status will probably lapse before I receive a date for my ‘oath’.

I am on the fence at the...

Questions on Financial Statement

Aug 27th 2014
Hi all,

I'm a DV 2014 winner and my interview is just around the corner. I'll most likely go to the interview with my bank statement that is a little short of 10k, which comes from many sources (and efforts) such as selling my car and contributions from my parents and relatives. I'm certain I'll be asked for a financial proof as I live in a developing country and have no employment history. I will not be able to prove that I have huge amount of cash sitting in my account for a long time, this...

Changing Jobs on TN

Aug 27th 2014
I am a Canadian citizen, working in the US for 5 years. I started out on TN, switched to H1-B, and then back to TN after my 3 year H1-B expired. Last TN was filed by my company w/ Premium Processing. No steps were taken with respect to the Green Card process.

I am currently working in NY, and would now like to take a TN job in CA. I have a couple of questions related to this.

1) I should have no issue with TN renewal on the basis of to being on TN "too long"? (I think it is nelsona's strong...

I-130 for my brother

Aug 26th 2014
Hi,

I filed I-130 for my brother and it is currently pending (initial review). I don't expect any issues with approval as it is a fairly simple case. My brother is in Russia and usually comes here every few months for work or a visit with us.

1) what additional documents does he need when he applies for B1/B2 while his I-130 is pending?

2) can he still get a b1/b2 after it is approved but waiting for PD to become current?

3) is the wait time the same for all countries under "

Green card renewal, 6-months, havent received physical gc

Aug 26th 2014
Hi,

I filed for a green card renewal early this year(Feb 7, 2014) and had a finger printing appointment done on Feb 28, 2014. I was told that my physical green card will arrive by mail within 4-5 months. To this date (8/25/2014), 6 months, I have not received my physical green card.

My status in the uscis website shows that they are still doing "Initial review" on my application.

Is it time for me to file an e-request on this case with "Case outside normal processing time"?

-thanks...
