Accidental Voting by Legal Permanent Resident

Mar 21st 2017
What is happening is breaking my heart...My mother, who has been a US Citizen for the past forty years, sponsored her sister twenty-five years ago. After fifteen years of waiting, her sister (my aunt) arrived in the US.

My aunt spoke very little English (and I should mention is of below-average intelligence) and one day, in the library, a voting advocate approached her and asked her if she would like to vote. My aunt didn't understand but told her that she was a green-card-holder, not a...

B2 Visa from Ukraine

Mar 21st 2017
I'm trying to invite my mother for a 30 day visit. She is 65 years old but not married. I put "widowed" on DS160 even though it was an informal marriage but I don't think it makes much difference. She owns 2 apartments and a summer house with land. She has worked as a physician for close to 40 years, and always lived in the same town. She still works part time even though she gets a small pension. Basically she has no intentions of staying in the US, at least not anytime soon.
I have a...

Me and my wife both have J1 visa, can she switch to J2

Mar 21st 2017
My wife and I both have separate J1 Visas. But my wife program is a 2-year program and mine is a 5-year program. After she is done with her program can she switch to a J2 visa under my J1?

Also, does she needs to leave the country for this? Or can she stay in the US while we do all this process?



Thanks

Passport expires before TN

Mar 20th 2017
Hi all,

I received a TN visa stamp in 2015 valid through the end of May 2018, but the passport I was holding expires in April 2017. At my most recent border crossing in January, the officer stamped my visa to only grant admission until the expiry of my passport in April. I have since renewed my passport (now valid until 2027), but the Admit Until date on my online I-94 is listed as April 2017.

My question is, is any action required on my part to ensure that my visa is still valid/that I am...

I'm lost - Married but don't live together yet & some other questions!

Mar 20th 2017
I'm a US citizen and I met my husband while he's finishing up his PhD. We got married but we live in 2 different states for now until he graduates in few months.
He entered the country on F-1 visa that expired last year, but he had maintained a valid I-20.
We are planning on applying for his green card asap, but I have few questions/ concerns:

1. Is it going to be a problem that we still don't live together yet? keeping in mind that he will be moving to my state as soon as he graduates...

Missing Green Card

Mar 19th 2017
Hi

I received my Congratulations -- removal of conditional status letter dated 6th December, 2016.

I was supposed to receive my green card within 2 months but it never arrived. I called USCIS, they investigated and it had not even reached production, but said they would push it forward. The rep said I should have it within 30 days. 30 days has passed and still no green card.

Is this a common issue only I have never even received a tracking number. We will not/cannot pay the $450 fee...

Request for Initial Evidence -- Where to send?

Mar 18th 2017
Hello! Newbie here -- I found this forum a couple of months ago and have found a lot of useful information.

I filed for my AOS in August and just received an RFE letter to submit I-485A. In the first paragraph of the letter, it says I need to submit the needed information to USDHS in Lee's Summit, MO. However, it later states in the letter: "When submitting Supplement A to Form I-485 with surcharge, send to... " and it gives the Chicago Lockbox address.

I am now confused as where to...

Biometrics Code identification for I-485 Application

Mar 18th 2017
Hi Every one,

Is there anyone aware of the code given by the USCIS while doing their biometrics?
Me and my wife has been given Code 3 while my 2 kids are given Code 2.
Does this really meaningful for the process of application? or why did USCIS made difference on these categories?

Thank you in advance.

DV 2018 - Questions

Mar 18th 2017
Hello,

I applied on October 2016 and got a confirmation number starting with 2017xxxxxxxx
I believe that I shall check on May 2017 for the results. However, and despite the fact it is definitely not guaranteed and it requires a whole lot of good luck to be selected, I do have few questions to list.

My main concern is names as I see many posts from Egyptian fellows requesting about how to address names properly and it is confusing!

1- Supposing this is my name as it...

Affected by India demonetization

Mar 18th 2017
I am looking for people like me that still have some old defunct currency (500 and 1000 notes), so that we can collectively put our voice together to RBI.

I have spoken to an RBI over the phone and I was told that current scheme (valid till June end) is only for Indian passport holders and not for PIO or OCI holders. I did take some rupees to India in February and was confirmed the same by custom official. So, I am stuck with 1k worth defunct notes with no path forward. Please reply here...

Re-entry in the US

Mar 18th 2017
Hello,

I obtained a green card through employment in 2009. I have since married a US Citizen and had a US born daughter.
In 2014, and for family reasons, I left to return to my home country (part of the EU) without any idea of the duration of that stay. I did not have the time to get a reentry permit at the time. I have since returned to the US for several short stays and never had issues at immigration (longest exit time was 9 months). I exited the US the last time on March 1st 2016.

I...

Becoming a USA citizen while still owing child support

Mar 18th 2017
Hello,

My ex husband had his interview. According to a family member, he passed the test and the officer asked him to come back and bring evidence that he is current with child support. He has a court order where it states that he has to pay $300 a month child support AND pay half for all medical expenses. While he is current with the $300 monthly obligation he has not covered the medical expenses for over a year.

Does USCIS have access to the child support court order?
How will USCIS...
