Mothers Citizenship Interview

Aug 28th 2015
Hi,
My parents had their citizenship interview few days back. My father passed the interview. My mother had been concentrating more on the civics part and never went over the N-400 application. When the USCIS officer asked her about tax returns and other questions she got confused and couldn't answer then correctly as she was scared to answer them wrong. She passed the civics. On the form she was given at the end stated that she needs to be retested again for understanding language.My father...

1099 contract work and TN

Aug 28th 2015
My friend is starting a consulting firm and wants to hire me as a contractor. He said he would pay me in 1099 form and he is ok with writing a letter for my TN.

I appreciate any advice on this 1099 thing and what I should be cautious about. Also, how should he put the 1099 thing in the TN letter? Should he put the total amount or the hourly rate?

Please enlighten me.

Thnx

What documents to attach when sending the NORI statement and affidavit to the offices in India?

Aug 27th 2015
Hi. I was wondering what documents to attach when sending the NORI statement and affidavit to the three offices in India (MHRD, home department of state and the Regional Passport Office)?

As such the instructions on the NORI forms do not indicate anything. So should we just send a cover letter, NORI statement, NORI affidavit?

Or

Should we attach photocopies of additional documents - such as educational certificates, passport pages, etc? And should they be same for each of the office,...

Choosing the legibility country (Ukraine or Moldova - whats best?)

Aug 27th 2015
Hello!

I was born in Ukraine, so normally I should fill that in.
However, my wife is from Moldova.

I saw today this clause in the instructions:
Was your spouse born in a country whose natives are eligible? If yes, you can claim your
spouse’s country of birth—provided that both you and your spouse are named on the selected
entry, are issued diversity visas, and enter the United States simultaneouslyClick to expand...
So, first of all please correct me if I am wrong, but I assume...

Far Too Expensive - Plenty Of payments of due, 2 kids, and never really a large amount revenue during the time... And yet I am spending up on supplements a month to hundred dollars? Crazy! Male Enhancement Review are one among the more expensive approaches around... And not only due to the high price for starters package, this can be also since you have to keep spending monthly to obtain replacements!

Complicated I864

Aug 26th 2015
Hello,

Little story first. My wife just received her US Citizenship (after 5y being LPR) and we would like to apply for green card for her both parents which currently are living at the same apartment with us.
They arrived with tourist visas more than 10 years ago and overstayed their visas, so all this time they were out of status. But they have their old passports and I-94 forms. We are thinking to fill I130 concurrently with I485.
Anyway, my question is about I864.

The problem is that my...

Aug 26th 2015
Hi,

I am on H4 visa currently and my H1 has been applied in April of 2015. I received an RFE and after sometime my consultant sent the RFE response back with premium processing. My question is that my husband (who is on H1 currently) has to travel to India for some medical reasons for 10 calendar days while my RFE response is under review. Will his travel out of the country create some issue in my H1 application.

Please help.
