Sponsoring my under 21 daughter

Mar 16th 2018
I have few question to ask you guys in regards to family sponsorship and I appreciate your help in advance.

1. Do I need to send photo of my daughter when I file for I-130?

2. If yes, what should the photo size be?

3. What documents do I have to summit other than I-130 application and the money order?

4. Will I be asked about my tax return document at any time in the process?

Thanks,

Kahi

Working on Side Project While on TN Visa

Mar 15th 2018
1) Is it legal to work on a project while on a TN visa during my own time, and eventually if it looks like it is gaining traction as a non-business entity, once the TN period is over and I have returned to Canada, then turn that product into a business in Canada?

2) Is it legal to start a Canadian business, work on a TN visa for a company within the US, and work on the Canadian business while in the US working for a US company?

My understanding is that the second is not legal, but I am not...

Transferring pending H1B approval

Mar 15th 2018
I am currently working as a Data Analyst and my status is H1B (since 2005). Recently, we filed for H1 extension. Unfortunately, my company is going through financial issues. So, I am planning to change jobs. Hence, I have 2 important questions with regards to change in job:
1. H1 transfer- How easy it is to find an employer who would process H1 transfer, given the current administration? Also, can H1 transfer be submitted while my H1 extension is in process?
2. Effect on green...

Has anyone filed their N400 application online? There is an option for it in myaccount.uscis.dhs.gov (where I had also successfully filed my I-90 for GC replacement last year).

Mar 15th 2018
It asks:
What was your prior spouse’s immigration status when your marriage ended?
U.S. citizen

Any help greatly appreciated!

Still waiting for my asylum decision

Mar 15th 2018
Hi all,
I have discovered this forum recently and it has been of a good help for me. I applied for asylum in March 2013 and interviewed in late August 2016. Still,I have not received a decision yet. I'm in status but, I have been waiting for more than 8 months. I tried to email the Asylum office with no luck , however, last months I have received a general generated response that my case is pending a final decision. What do you think I can do next.
Thanks in advance

DV 2017 AOS Only

Mar 14th 2018
Well, I've been reluctant to create a DV 2017 AOS Thread as I wanted an actual selectee to have the honor of doing that. However, it looks like we may end up with individual Threads being created if this isn't done soon.

So here's an AOS Thread for the lucky selectees already based in the U.S. and planning on processing AOS. Please go through the attached spreadsheet, (it will do you a world of good), and post subsequent questions regarding the processing on this Thread....

TD extension for spouse is pending.. her Driver License is expiring

Mar 14th 2018
Hello,

My wife's current TD is tied to my old job. I have submitted an I-539 for TD extension to align with my new job.

Her TD expires on April 13, 2018, along with her Driver License. I submitted for her TD extension in November 2017, and they are so back logged that she won't be able to get a new TD by atleast end of 2018 or even early 2018.

Can i take the I797 notice i got for the extension for TD to the DMV and have her license extended? Does she have options?

Filling Taxes As New GC Holder

Mar 14th 2018
Hello all!

I think I've seen already something about this in the past but the forum is so big that I can not find the exact posts about this.

I wonder : as a new GC holder, how should the tax be filled?

I've received my immigration visa this March and I will activate the status in the summer.

That being said, am I to fill the forms taking into account the first entry or the visa issue date?

I am sure a lot of forumites had this doubt and passed through this process already. Please share...

DS260 unlock request

Mar 14th 2018
Those of you who have unlocked your DS260 forms; when you got the email reply from KCC that your form has been unlocked, did it contain the following phrase: "Please remember that the Kentucky Consular Center does not have the authority to tell you whether or not your specific case will be disqualified. Only a consular officer can do that at the time of your visa interview."?

DV 2018 AOS Only

Mar 13th 2018
So it's that time of the year again. I figured since I'm still here - yeah, I know I've been posting about retiring for a while now without actually doing so . Anyway I figured since I'm still around, I might as well create a new Thread for DV 2018 selectees currently based in the US and who will be processing their DV selection via AOS. Plus having the first post on this Thread makes it easy for Simon to use the standard script he uses in directing traffic to this Thread when his...

My UK based company is looking to send me to their US office for a few months. They are not incorporated there but the employees all work as independent contractors for the UK team.

Any help would be absolutely appreciated.

Thanks,
