    Mother's B2 visa go rejected

    Same exact issue. My parents have been here for 5 times total in the last 10 years. 2 out of 5 times left in 10 weeks or less despite getting a port of entry I94 stamp of 6 months stay. They come only during summer time as they have their Son there and have own house they live in- they cant just lock it and come stay in US nor do they have any interest to come here. They qualified for dropbox then there was a letter saying they need to come personally to the center and provide supporting documentation for one overstay which was for 3 months. I had them stay specifically for travel purpose so they get the winter effect as well-they enjoyed the snow and probably had enough of the cold weather (-15 deg C)- they decided never to travel in winter after that effect. They have never stayed beyond summer on any other stay. Their visa was rejected as they did not believe that for travel they needed to stay 9 months-this was their second visit to US when this happened. They are old parents and they probably can travel only when they are healthy which is few more years. I am not sure why the visa officer would reject based on that. There was also proof that the approved extension visa was available for proof. Just denied to my surprise. Some courtesy for old people might be helpful. Remember that they also come to visit family here and grand children during summer times . very unfortunate.
  2. you should have got the correspondence by now. Many in same boat are getting approvals. If not yet,,you will receive in a day or two.
  3. I am no expert but I guess that means they took up your case to process since the EB2 is current for your PD ..October bulleting came out to be )1 May 2009 for EB2 ..so assuming you have another 20 days this month and 30 days in October 50 days total until they can adjudicate you case ..if no issues you may see approval.. you can call USCIS and check..some officers (level 2 ) can answer your question.

    Rfe response with photo copy of gold sheet

    wait for the lawyer to respond and do a overnight delivery if it is too close..usually RFEs have 90 days or so to respond..Why did you wait till last week (did it take so much time to collect information)... Photocopy may be fine because they have the records but still better to send the original

    2nd Job with EAD

    srik97 curious to find out if you have any input on your question from a lawyer or your employer or you ended up doign what you wanted..full time with current employer and part time with a consulting company?
  6. Dates became current in feb 2012 bulletin with priority date feb 2009. The medical form filled with civil surgeon stated my wife is pregnant and showed a waiver for TdaP vaccine during application. we expected an RFE at some point in time and took the Tdap after baby was born in june. Today we received an RFE stating the form says pregnancy but that does not mean applicant cannot take infleunza , Hep B etc.In addition you must also have a current tuberculosis screening. She had all those taken and also says that in the form submitted. Looks like the officer got misled by that one remark. I am going to contact my lawyer with the details on monday. Anyone in the same boat? Also letter says you must submit info within thirty (84 days)...87 if notification received by mail...Not sure if it is 30 or 84 or 87 to get back. I have the copy of original medical I693 form which gives details on the shots taken except TDAP which i have now as it was adminstered after baby was delivered. Has anyone dealt with similar situation? Thanks.

    February 2012 Bulletin Track EB2 Approvals

    no doesnt sound right..my date was feb 16th filed. i got EAD and card on march 29th and FP done april 12th.
  8. Per murthy bulletin today, the cases will still be reviewed completely for 485 and, if everything is acceptable, will be held until visa numbers are available and green card obtained as numbers become available? Can some one confirm this is true that any RFEs any questions that USCIS may have will still go ON and only thing pending is the approval when date becomes current?

    February 2012 Bulletin Track EB2 Approvals

    Very nice information. should have checked before on this forum. I got this finger print letter 3 weeks back and did not know about the early walk in. I was told it was only for emergencies. Would have been worth a shot to attempt it. Anyway with dates retrogressing it does not matter anymore. Thanks for the info though.

    need help on i485 RFE

    There is a remote possibility for you according to me since status changed on 14th march. usually they dont update case status online. But think about this way: you have your EAD already; You RFE was an easy one for BC which will easily clear out. So just wait out a few months more worst case and you will be fine. I used to get tensed the same way about GC dreams etc. Honeslty it does not matter any more. My PD was feb 2009 and all of a sudden it became current in feb bulletin when i was not even expecting it to happen. So dont get hung up on these things. Its only a matter of few months worst case OR may be you already are through before march 23 2012.

    Vaccines for Medical Report

    see page 5 of USCUS form I-693...Also ask around for USciS civil surgeon fee.i paid 270 per person though i did most of the test with my pcp for the civil surgeon to enter data from pcp provided vaccines. irrespective of that the cost for civil surgeon providing missing vaccines was 270 anyway. Also i found another civil surgeon charging 180$... I think it was easy to go trhu the civil surgeon and be done with stuff in 2 days.. Just check with a couple of civil surgeopn office for fees.

    Tricky case !!

    So you while you are waiting for your GC you would like to port your Wife's EB3 to EB2 and with the earlier PD want to see if you can get the GC earlier through your wife. Interesting Dude.. By the time you get answers on the forum you will have GC in your hand. Seriously every single person answered it right as to why you would want to even think of such a move when you have a EAD in hand without any RFE's. Still you want to pursue this: I believe lawyer consultation fee on is 250 $. Go for it if you really want to do this.

    need help on i485 RFE

    Please have you lawyer handle the case. Before you resend the BC make sure all required criteria for BC have been met. Lawyer should have done this already when the BC was sent the first time the application was filed. Whether you send it or lawyer sends it shouldnt matter. Ofcourse sending multiple copies wont make sense. So have your lawyer send it and get the trackign number from him so you know it reached there. AND Dont worry you will be fine...

  23. I saw this newsflash on Murthy bulletin yesterday. Does not show up anymore? Whats up? NewsFlash! March 2012 Visa Bulletin Predictions: EB2 to Advance Again! Posted 24.Jan.2012 The U.S. Department of State (DOS) Visa Office has confirmed that EB2 priority dates will advance again in the March 2012 Visa Bulletin. The exact amount of forward movement is not yet known, as it largely depends upon case filing rates. The DOS projects that the EB2 cutoff dates will move by at least a few months in March 2012. The DOS estimates that an advance of as much as six months could occur. They stated that it is unlikely that the dates will advance by a full year. Updates on this important topic will be reported to MurthyDotCom and MurthyBulletin readers as reliable information becomes available.

    AOS -Medical Condition

    See details below from USCIS website: I am pregnant (or possibly pregnant) and I have a positive initial screening result. Do I still need a chest x-ray or will USCIS accept Form I-693 without an x-ray? A. USCIS will not accept a Form I-693 not completed in accordance with the Technical Instructions for the Examination of Aliens in the United States (Technical Instructions), including the TB Component of the Technical Instructions for the Examination of Aliens in the United States (May 2008), and its update. If you are pregnant (or possibly pregnant) and your initial TB test reveals that you are infected with TB, you are required to undergo a chest x-ray, in accordance with the TB Component of the Technical Instructions for the Medical Examination of Aliens in the United States (May 2008) and its update. However, you may choose to defer the chest x-ray until later in pregnancy or after delivery but the civil surgeon cannot sign the medical examination form until the radiograph is performed and interpreted, and treatment of Class A pulmonary TB disease, if needed, is completed. Therefore, if you choose to defer the chest x-ray, the civil surgeon cannot sign the Form I-693.
