Hi folks.

I have been reading a lot of people who are wondering if they should get the new added vaccine about gonorrhea, before their interview.
The answer is no and yes, depending on your PD.
If your application has been received before August 1st 2016, then NO!
If your application has been received ON or AFTER August 1st 2016, definitely yes, you should go to see your initial civil surgeon in order to complete the additional sheet of the form I693.

Here is what I found on USCIS website : "...If USCIS receives a Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record, that is signed on or after August 1, 2016 and the form does not contain the results of the newly-required Gonorrhea Component, then USCIS will issue a Request for Evidence (RFE) instructing that the deficiency be corrected...".
So, if you submitted your BEFORE August 1st 2016, You should not be worried. You are just not concerned. That's it!
God bless you all!

Hello Y'all!!

I know how stressful was the whole process for a K1 Visa and now i'm going through
 I-485, I-864, I-765, I-131

My biggest advise if you wanna married a non-US citizen is to apply for the K1 first.
It's long and fastidious but I must admit that the fact we went through the K1 Visa process with the USCIS, has made everything faster and easier since.

K1 sent to USCIS 01/28/16
K1 Case Approval: 04/02/16
K1Visa Embassy Interview: 06/22/16 (Paris, France)
K1 Visa approved: 07/05/16
Entry USA K1 visa: 08/20/16
Marriage NYC: 09/14/16
AOS1,2 &3 sent: 10/19/16
Chicago USCIS received on 10/20/16
USCIS case received email: 10/24/16
Check 1070$ cleared: 10/25/16

If you have any question don't hesitate. I keep you posted.

The last time that the form I-693 (medical examination) was reviewed was 03/03/2016. I've seen some peole saying that it was revised in August but when I checked the USCIS website, their last revision date was in March.

Do you guys know why or how I can see the form that has been revised in August?

I understand that the CDC/USCIS revised the I-864 medical form, only recently, on August 1, 2016, requiring additional testing. For those that filed before August 1, 2016 (in my case Jan 2016, when I sent in the medical at that time), do we need to take a revised medical if the interview is held within 1 year of filing my interview -- in my case, my interview is in November 2016).

So, will I need a revised medical for an I-485 filed in Jan 2016 for which the interview is in Nov 2016?

hey i was so optimistic this morning :( and no more i guess..

as i said in my previous thread, i made E-request to inquiry about case pending
and this morning i saw a new notification.

 "On October 24, 2016, your inquiry about why your case is taking longer than our processing time, referral number SR128******MSC, was assigned to an officer for response.

however in this evening i received "next steps" notification.

As of October 24, 2016, your inquiry about why your case is taking longer than our processing time, referral number SR128******MSC, is currently not assigned for processing.

how come its possible? there's is something i can do? except waiting?

Hello Guys, I'm new to this forum and i need your urgent advice to my issue. I came in 3 weeks ago with a F1 visa to study a month course at Newyork Film Academy. The course was supposed to start on the 10th of October but i sent an email to the school seeking for a deferment of my program which they approved. They said i should pay for the shipping of the new i-20 letter which i did and gave them the address of where i stay in Texas. Few days later, the School's international office called me on the number i put down for the courier but i missed the call and they then sent me an email saying

"At the time we were told that you deferred your attendance, we were not aware that you had already entered the US with your F-1 student visa on September 22nd. F-1 students who have already entered the US do not have the option to defer attendance. Your current SEVIS record will be terminated, which will give you 15 days to depart the US. We will issue a new I-20 and send it via e-ship. You will be responsible for paying a new SEVIS fee ($200USD), but you do not have to go back to the US Embassy. You may re-enter the US up to 30 days before your new course begins using this new I-20 and the F-1 student visa in your passport. Regardless of the date of your departure, the termination may cause a “flag” on your immigration record and you may be asked about this when entering the US in the future. "

I'm confused because I don't have plans of leaving sooner, Please advice.

Hi everyone, so i received my RFE for i485. I did not submit form i864 and they are asking for it with and i quote from the letter "...provide copies of the petitioner/sponsor's most recent Federal tax returns and all supporting tax documents (W-2's, 1099s, Form 2555, and tax schedules.)" My wife filed through Turbotax and we were able to print out last years tax return and we kept her w-2s and everything she filed for that year. She makes over the 125% federal poverty level and my income is also included on that. This is what we have so far...please share your thoughts.

-Cover letter
-Signed and completed I864
-Sponsors 2015 Federal tax return with W-2s
-paystubs(new job with higher income)

Intended immigrants Proof of Work Authorization (DACA since 2012)
2015 federal tax return with documents
Paystubs (to show income and work 2 jobs)

Should i get a complete tax return from the IRS site or is the one from Turbo tax fine? Thank you guys for any help.

Hey guys, I have been on this forum for over a month and just wondering if anyone from Atlanta can kindly inform me about their interview experience. My PD is August 9th and I just got approved for my EAD and currently waiting patiently for the card in the mail.
