Britismon,gabam,susieQQQ,........,need your help
I just wanted to know for how long does the police certificate and medical examination results take to expire. And for example if i am doing my interviews in this December 2013, when is it appropriate for me to start chasing the whole process of acquiring those papers
I am wondering what is the better/expected format for the employer letter to be presented at the port of entry when applying to renew the TN visa:
1. A new letter similar to the one presented originally with some modifications to state that it is a request to extend the TN status, or
2. A short letter requesting extension without details about the employer, position, petitioner, etc., and attaching the original letter.
Well I don't but here is the thing, my friend has been waiting for interview for 10 month, he updated his address, he moved in same jurisdiction so asylum office not changed, but when he notified office on his address he got interview notice 2 weeks after he notified. It might be just coincidence but what if by sending address notification he revived his case, reminded officer or case manager to put his case on the top on table.
Anyone familiar with asylum case management can comment?
Case managers are also humans, what if someone put your folder on the bottom of full drawer and then suddenly remembered you after you reminded them yourself by sending inquiry or notification. I don't think there is sorting process going on in the office otherwise there would be accurate timing and we could have predicted our interview notices. I believe losing cases, misplacing folders, burning documents, splashing coffee, eating papers are quite common in asylum office so anything can happen
regarding interview notices that get lost quite often. Mail couriers are frustrated depressed guys. Have you watched how they handle mails when they are distributing envelopes in neighborhood? They simply don't care, they are leaving bag full of envelopes unattended, anyone can grab envelope and steal it, I think at least 1% of mail is lost and what happens if your so much desired interview notices happens to be among that 1% and you miss interview. Hell no luck but it happens sometimes. Of course when you have lawyer and usually lawyer also gets notice the chances that you miss interview is almost zero but many people still miss interviews because courier lost envelope. And you may be deported or go on the next waiting circle of frustration
Depressed here, high rent, no decent job, today was offered job to drive prostitutes, lucky day huh
Hi, I am currently on valid H1B visa. Recently, I got married to US citizen and through my spouse I applied for EAD/AP/Green Card. The application is still under process. We have not received any information except a notice that our application has reached the USCIS office.
Now, I am wondering if I travel outside US (for e.g. Europe) for a short holidays, will there be a problem with my current Green card application? Am I legally allowed to travel outside US for short visit during the application process?
Is there any problem that I typed the name of the governorate of birth in the online application in DV 2014 and when I were selected in Dv 2014 I sent the Ds 230 with my full birth place
May that affect my chances or disqualify me?

I'm a veteran of DV lottery program.
I have been applying for last couple of years with no luck.
On previous occasions, when I got my confirmation number it was always year number followed by 1. e.g. 20121, 20101.
However, when I applied this time my confirmation number has number 3 followed by the year number i.e. 20153.
I wonder what is the significance of these numbers?
I never changed my country of Chargeability. It is the country I was born in.
I want you to post your confirmation numbers here and the result i.e. whether you were a winner or not.
Let's solve this puzzle for betterment of all.

Got married to a foreign national (Canadian) to get away and realized things were not working right and could not leave my ex. It took 4 years to get divorce as he had some health issue and I decided not to leave US for my child and ex. had applied for Canadian immigration and as I had no status in USA the Canadian embassy called me for immigration interview in India and since I did not go thinking I would not get entry back here they refused my case..I did get divorce without claiming anything as no property or child custody was involved. Got divorce filed in Canada as he was Canadian. He filed the divorce so I did not have to go.
I remarried my ex and realized this is my true family. He has no one beside me and I love him and my child who means everything to me. After 30 days of interview USCIs is asking sworn statement of my martial history with my ex-spouse-including how and when we met, our courtship, whether we lived together, at which address and for how long and if so, where and when and why we separated and divorced, and why remarried to my ex husband again.. am worried what if I tell I was frustratedand wanted to run away from situation as had no job or could not travel. I am so confused. They also asked final divorce decree showing martial settlement agreement and property agreement. I did get the agreement from Supreme Court and it does not mention about property as we had none and we never lived together.
I did submit my divorce and marriage certificate and they want final decree of my divorce my ex who is now my husband again is out of status as I did not apply for him yet. At the time of my filing 130 he was dependant. I am stressed as I have no one back home and it would be horrible for my child who has considered this as his home and has a decent job and is paying taxes .My lawyer says its ok to say whatever is true. But at times I feel being honest gets you in trouble. I have no criminal record .Please help. Will they consider it as bad case, I could have got status here marrying someone from US but for me I was not interested. Please help. I am doing my adjustment of status through siblings petition and not marriage. I have proof of marriage documents and the times we met and pictures. But I did not have any physical relationship due to distance. I am lost .Please if anyone can advice. I never violated any laws. My lawyer I feel is trying her best but m lost. She seems confused,.Most of the lawyers are asking lot higher charges just for a letter.My lawyer wants me to just reply stating whatever happened.She doe not want to to show any proofs.After so many years dont want to go back.If i wanted could have got married in US and got citizenship by now in 14 years.:confused:
Second post here, yeah! Thanks nelsona for answering my first question, very helpful!.
I am a Canadian trying to apply TN at Mexican border. I believe my case is straightforward, and the chance of denial is very small. However, if it happened, am I (with my family, all Canadians) still able to enter the status without TN, just like regular entry at a Canadian POE? I really don't want to get stuck at Mexico with my family.
My spouse got her status changed from H4 to F1 when started her Master's. Status was changed in November 2012.
She still has one more semester to complete her studies. We are visiting to India in Dec 2013 and have to get her F1 visa stampped.
Is this risky or can we go ahead with our plan to visit India?
Also, since she has only one semester left do have to show the financial proof of amount shown in I20(which is for one year) or can we show only for one semester?

My wife and I are both with A2 Visa and stationed in NY.
My wife is my dependent and is working for an American company. This company is now offering my wife a chance to apply for an E1 visa under the sponsorship of this company.
In order to apply for the E1, she needs to forfeit her A2 visa and by that require me to quite my mission and forfeit my A2 as well.
My questions are:
1. What kind of visa will we have when forfeiting the A2? Is it reverting back to our regular "tourist" visa?
2. What are the chances to be declined for an E1? Are there any specific terms to be aware of?
3. We understand that we can accomplish the E1 application from NY without returning to our home country and finalize the process on the first visit. Is that correct?
Thank you all!
I got an extension of my DS-2019 when I was back to my country (Italy) and obtained a new Visa stamp.
Right a few weeks before, I started the waiver application and sent all the papers for the J-1 waiver which I was subject to.
My question is: Am I subject again to the 212(e) having a new DS-2019 (even if it'is only an extension of the previous one, i.e. same SEVIS number, same program) ?
I was thinking to sent to the DOS the new DS-2019 and the new Visa stamp copies in order to update them, since my case is still "pending" and they are waiting for the NOL from my country.
Do you think is the right procedure?
Have you never heard about similar cases?
Thank you so much in advance
birth place gap in the registration in DV 2015
Could i enter the governorate or i must enter the City only?
I hope you'll be able to help or just give me some ideas what to do next.
10/01/2013 we filed (me and my husband) for AOS with I-912 request for a fee waiver. 10/14/2013 we got two NOA I-797C: one (my husband's) saying that it was approved and mine that it was rejected due to lack of the check or any evidence that I am elegible for a fee waiver.
We filed two I-485 (with the rest of the documents) for each of us and one I-912 for both of us as a family (with him as the main applicant), as suggested in the instructions provided by USCIS to the form I-912. In our family he is mantaining me, he is working part-time and receiving benefits, I am not working and I am not elegible for the benefits. It was all stated in the I-912 form and signed by both of us.
It's a bit confusing that they accepted his and not mine since I am his dependant. It's like they didn't connect my case with his although all the documents were sent in the same envelope.
What should I do now? Should I send back my documents with the copy of his I-912 and his NOA approving fee waiver and with some cover letter explaining the situation? If so, should they be the same documents that they sent back to me, which seem kind of "processed" having some numbers at the right margin and some signatures or should it be a completely new package with the current date?
Or should I send the same/new package of documents with an I-912 only with my name as an applicant?
With the I-797C I got attached a letter on a green sheet saying "place this letter on top of your application package. This will flag your application to receive special attention when it is re-processed" - is it good or bad? Do they really put a special attention or is it like "it was already here and rejected, so let's reject it without paying attention"? I know I'm going a liitle bit crazy right now, but it's being tough...
Any thoughts highly appreciated!
I have a question about Second notification letter.
If I get Second notification letter how will I be notified? Will I be notified via e-mail or I have to check DV Entrant Status?
Thank You in advance!
I'm a Canadian citizen, working full-time in the USA on an H-1B visa. As I understand it, I cannot seek secondary employment (eg, pick up part-time work at McDonalds) due to the exclusive arrangement between employer and employee (and the USCIS), in particular the bit about taking a job which an American could have taken.
I've just recently been contacted by a Canadian friend (he lives/works in the Toronto area) regarding a possible part-time opportunity, where I would be able to work remotely, on a contract basis. No requirement for me to travel across the border. I would be paid in CAD by a Canadian entity.
Obviously I want to "do the right thing" here.
Would it be possible to take on the Canadian contract without endangering my H-1B status? I ask because as near as I can tell, doing so would not displace any American citizen from any American job.
If the answer is "no you cannot", please explain.
My situation is:
H1 approved till Dec 31, 2013 but not stamped.
Currently in US on H4.
Employer willing change status from H4 to H1.
Question is: Can H1 be extended without being stamped or more precisely, can H1 be extended even if the employer does not change the status from H4 to H1 before Dec 31, 2013 but agrees on extending it?
Hello guys. I have a situation I wanted to share with you and I'm hoping someone can help out.
Here goes my father applied for asylum back in 2000 but never received an interview date or a decision on the case. In 2009 he decided with the help of his attorney, to reopen that application. He had an interview with AO but was sent to see a judge because of that original application that was deemed abandoned. In that said application, me along with my younger siblings they were 14 and 12 in 2000) and our mom were his derivatives. My father was thankfully granted asylum in 2011. We were all were subsequently granted derivative asylum. I was later denied asylum because I've been married since 2004(which is understandable)
Anyway my 2 younger siblings are still in Africa. Their approved case was sent to the consulate back home. They went in today for their interview. My sister got her visa but my brother didn't. He was told that they based the denial decision because of his age (23) on my father's case that was opened in 2009 I'm so sad right now because we thought that they couldn't deny his visa with an approved case.
Honestly is there anything we can do to help him out? Is it over for him? My parents will be speaking with their attorney soon.
