Is www.usadiversitylottery.com a scam website?

10 hours 19 min ago
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,

Jose

Why were you cited (part 11 item 29)- how detailed should I go?

10 hours 42 min ago
7 years ago, I was cited for petty theft misdemeanor for stealing a laptop. This is the one and only black eye on the application. I was not convicted, and the case was dismissed.

I was wondering, in that table, how detailed should I be when it asks "Why were you arrested, cited, detained, or charged?"

Are they asking for "why" legally, as in PC 484(A) - Petty Theft.

or are they asking "why" as in "to whom it may concern, on 4/14/2006, I was...." - a very detailed walk through of why.

The...

H1b Transfer but pay stub amount less than lca

10 hours 43 min ago
Hi guys,
I am in USA ona H1b visa. My employer is paying me regularly but is paying me less than the LCA amount. I know I can file complain but I thats not the concern here. I recently got a really good job offer and want to apply for my H1b transfer. I wanted to ask does USCIS look at the pay stub amounts when they transfer H1B visa? Can some one tell me what are my chances of getting a denial? Has some one got their H1b transferred successfully with less pay stub amount?
Please advice. I am...

DV2015 - Visa timing and name changes

12 hours 12 min ago
Hi,
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...

TN - Transcripts - do they have to be originals?

Sep 18th 2014
I will be seeking a TN. I have my original diplomas (from Canada), but noticed they do not state the major - just Science/ Arts.

My transcripts have the degree designation, but I only have copies. Is this ok or do they need to see originals?

Thanks.

I-130 or DS-117? best way??!

Sep 18th 2014
Hello folks,
I already shared my problem on a previous thread, I came to my country of origin to spend 1 month of holiday, before 4 months of the expiry date of my conditional green card, but after that my husband took my documents when the expiration date became near, and refused to give them back.
After that he changed his mind and we filed I 751 on May 2014 and they sent me a I797 extension of 1 year, he mailed it to me but unfortunately it was lost. So I couldn't re-enter USA since last...

B1/B2, Canada, Montral/Toronto

Sep 18th 2014
Hi! I've looked through the forum and have tried to find it via google but nothing showed up..
I am planing to set up an appoitment for B1/B2 visa in Canada. Every single issue of the visa application process is clear for me but the only thing I wonder about is the difference in the days of awaiting for the meeting.
For Toronto it is 9 (and 2 processing days), for Ottawa it is 1 (2PD) and for Montreal 1 (5PD).
It means that the rate of the refusal is higher in Montreal/Ottawa and everyone is...

TD Visa for dependents

Sep 17th 2014
Hi,

I got my TN Visa just couple of days ago. Thanks to all your support, this wouldn't be possible with you (specifically the user Nelsona). Very very much appreciated.

Q1) I didn't took my wife and kid while going for TN since I felt better to do mine first. Can I take my wife and kid now for TD visa, and once they get it make a U Turn and come back to Canada?

Q2) If my spouse is INDIAN resident, can she still come with me at border for TD visa OR I must go to US Consulate?

Q3) I wonder...

Acceptance notice thorough email/text Form I130

Sep 17th 2014
Hello
Recently we filed for GC and sent in Forms I 130, I 485 and I 765. Today I got text about acceptance and receipt number for all three of these forms. I was wondering shouldn't my spouse have gotten to the text and email regarding I 130 as he is the petitioner and we attached his information on the form G 1145 on the first page of the package for I 130, and I should have gotten for the I 485 and I 765 as the G1145 for these had my information? Maybe this is how it should have been and I...

Hello,

My husband recently applied for Adjustment of Status the end of June. He completed his fingerprinting August 5th.

Sep 16th 2014
Hi all,

I am currently on F2 visa in US, with my husband doing OPT (he graduated in May 2014).

I myself have a Masters from one of the top US universities, although I have never worked here before (I left soon after graduation a few years ago), and I never used my OPT or filed for an H1B.

After coming to join my husband last year, I filed for H1B with one small consultancy (call it Employer A). I paid for all associated costs with H1B application, and Employer A has not undertaken any...
