      Welcome back,

      Glad to know they sent pkt-3.
      (usually it is sent to home country I believe u are the second person who got here anyway)


      >> i finally filled e.thing...fedexd to my wife.... after all my 864,864a,230pI,2001,2002 ...

      It was learnt that diff consulate have slightly different way for FtJ procedure, but common forms are in EB catagory are

      I-134 (affidavit)
      DS-230 (part I and II) (u may fill out for ur spouse, but she will sign on it- Part I only will be signed, part II will be signed at intw time in fron of officer.)

      Rest of doc req or asked are

      Local language org+copy of Marriage Certificate & English translation org+copy.
      Local language spouse Birth Certificate org+copy. and English translation org+copy
      Police Certificate (all cities where spouse stayes 6+ months) (keep a copy on ur record )
      Medical (from authorized hospitals/clincs) (usually sealed , do not open)
      Spouse Passport copies
      Photos
      Your EVL (employment letter) to support I-134 form
      Tax return 1040 (last year) to support I-134 form (additional optional doc W-2+ paystubs if available)
      Financial Doc/ bank certificate to support I-134 form


      I believe thats it. they may have some diff internal forms system. all varies consl to consl in diff countries.


      Good Luck

        • Next time carry a mail from Delhi consulate. Show that to person at gate and they may let you in.

          I did that back in Feb. during my wife FTJ and they allowed me to go inside to find out the status. I was also in consulate when she finally went for interview.

          • When the approved bill becomes law

            Under the Constitution of the United States, either
            House (House of Representatives or Senate) can initiate the
            legislative process in most cases. Or the two Houses can initiate the
            legislative process simultaneously. Within each House, the bill is
            first introduced and goes through the relevant Committees and
            Subcommittees. The Committees' bill is then presented to the full
            floor of that House. Statistically, the full floor usually rubber
            stamps the Committee bills in most cases. Accordingly, the major
            struggle lies with the Committee actions. If one House initiates
            alone, the bill moves to another House for its action. In the another
            House, a same process will take place before the another House either
            amend and pass or reject the bill or just approve the bill. Where two
            Houses initiate similar bills either simultaneously or sequentially,
            and the two Houses passe similar bills with difference in some
            provisions, then the bills go to the Conference committee that is
            consisted of the House and the Senate. If the Conference Committe
            reaches a compromise, the bill then goes back to each House and the
            full floor of each House will either pass or reject it.
            Statistically, rejection of the Conference committee compromise is
            very rare. Once the bill is finally passed by the two Houses, then it
            is presented to the President for his signature. The President has a
            power either to consent and sign it into law or veto the bill within
            10 days. The so called "statute" or "law" takes effect "upon
            President's signature." Accordingly, even if the Congress passed a
            bill, there will be no law until the President signs it into law.
            This legislative process will tell you two things. The bill which the
            Judiciary Committee in one House, the Senate, passed yesterday is not
            a law. Second, for this bill to become a law, there is a long road
            ahead and will go though a painful struggle in both Houses. Roll up
            your sleeves and work on lobbying!!
            No defeat is final until you stop trying.

              You should send org I-134 with Notarization.

              I am not aware of 1083, 2000 , plz put some light on it what are those all about?


              Good Luck.

                Question is what quota dependents will be using. My wifes Follow to join case is stuck in Islamabad because of this retro. I think you are in the same boat too. Now if the bill is passed as is what quota dependents will be using or they will be recieving thier GC on mere fact that trhe principal has recived his or her green card. Please share your thoughts.

                • dependents quota

                  This bill clearly says that spouses and kids will not be counted in those 90,000 visas (limitations of visa availability will not be applied to them or in other words their visa availability will always be current if the principal already got his/her GC). So they will get the visa as soon as this bill will be passed.
                  But I am expecting a long way to go before this happens.
                  Whats your timeline.. Can you share.

                    I hope that is the case.
                    My wife already had the interview in Spetember they told her that she has met all the requirements but they can not give the visa because of the priority date.

                            • Mr. Khan.
                              Sorry to hear that your case got stucked at the edge. More or less my case is the same and I hope that this bill will pass along with the other immigration reforms before February. President Bush is pursing a lot on the other immigration reforms and I am pretty sure that these reforms will become part of it and will get signed by February.
                              There is no doubt until now that if this bill got passed then spouses and kids dont have to wait for any visa number to be available. You can check the full version of the bill on house.gov.
                              Contact the senator of your area who is in that committee and tell him that you are suffereing because of this and they have to take care of this issue. I believe this will get approve from the senate by end of november and we have to see when congress approves it. After the approval of both houses it wont take more than 10 days to be a law.
                              So do the best you can and pray to God. In this country I have learnt one thing.... What you strives for, you will get it... sooner or later.
                              Take care and contact the senators. Once this will be in congress then we need to contact the congressmen.

                              UNITED WE STAND.
                              No defeat is final until you stop trying.

                                You replied in Begining May and they sent letter end of May and schdule intvw of spouse in Sep, If they had schdl Intvw before July she wouldn't be have any issue.

                                So I am understanding that they took intvw and verbaly apvd her but becz of unavailability of V-no they asked to wait. and I believe she won't need to go for intvw again. Once PD become current they would ask her to send pp by authorized courier and they would issue immg-visa.

                                becz of recent retrogression all countries were affected by it.

                                Be hopeful it seems recently Senata Juridiction committee passed a bill that would allow spouse and cildren to get exemption for v-no per country limit, still need to go from few stage to become law. that would definately give relief to family members.


                                We all wish u good luck, and thanks again for sharing valueable info hope it would help other ppl.

                                  • FTJ - Experts PLEASE pay attention to my case

                                    I went through most of the info in this thread and could not find a case similar to mine.


                                    I really like this thread seeing many people helping others. Lots of info in this thread.

                                    Can some one give their opinions in my case? I have very short time and have to complete many things.


                                    - I-485 denied for my spouse and kid (another kid was born here - no problem)
                                    - I want to take FTJ route as this is the last and final option. The dependants have to leave the country soon (3 weeks) to avoid ban before they accrue 180 day out of status.
                                    - FTJ will be processed at Chennai consulate. My PD is 03/98.
                                    - The dependants are here for the last 7 years.I want to go with the dependants on vacation for some time. we are also vacating the apt.


                                    Questions -

                                    - - Are my dependants eligible to get FTJ when their I-485 denied here?

                                    - Can I send I-824 now (when dependants are in US)? If I send it now, i might get receipt notice by the time we leave. If this is a problem, we can send I-824 the day we leave for India so that dependants will be in india by the time CIS receives it.

                                    - Do I have to file I-824 if it is chennai consulate? If I do not do it, would there be a problem as I-824 to be filed with in one year of approval of GC. I will be completing 6 months soon.

                                    - want to initiate FTJ when we were in India as I want to go with them. Any issues? If this is a problem, i can stay back and initiate FTJ when dependants are in india. I want to start FTJ with/without I-824 receipt notice.


                                    - We are givining friends address as mailing address on I-824 as we want to vacate apt.

                                    - The dependants are here for the last 7 years. I believe i need to get Police clearance from US police before they leave as it needs their finger prints. Are there any issues getting Police clearance here as their i-485 got denied?

                                    - are there other things that I have to do here when dependants are in US? Once they leave they cannot come back until FTJ is approved.

                                    - what about medicals? they already went through that for I-485?
                                    - I will be going on vacation (2months) and vacating apt. Would that be a problem in any part of FTJ process?

                                    - I beleive there will be difficulties in fillin forms for our type of case. Do i have to mention any where about their unsuccessful attempts of I-485. I am not sure where and when to mention this.


                                    PLEASE let me know your thoughts and quick responses on this and also guide me to overcome the difficulties which you can think of in my case.

                                    • hadasa,
                                      your story is very painful but unfortunately in your scenario you are not eligible to file 824 for your wife. This is my opinion based on docs on INS which may be wrong as I am strictly a layman as far as law is concerned. You should immediately consult a good lawyer who can get this case sorted out. Depending on the area you are in we can help you out in finding a good lawyer.
                                      Dont loose hope and I am pretty sure that there is a way out of this problem.

                                      Thanks.
                                      No defeat is final until you stop trying.

                                        Please call the customer service. The Priority Date mentioned on your I-824 may not matter much but your approval notice should go to the right consulate, I think. BTW, Does Chennai consulate ask for I-824 ?

                                        -Thanks

                                          Sorry to hear that your case got stucked at the edge. More or less my case is the same and I hope that this bill will pass along with the other immigration reforms before February. President Bush is pursing a lot on the other immigration reforms and I am pretty sure that these reforms will become part of it and will get signed by February.
                                          There is no doubt until now that if this bill got passed then spouses and kids dont have to wait for any visa number to be available. You can check the full version of the bill on house.gov.
                                          Contact the senator of your area who is in that committee and tell him that you are suffereing because of this and they have to take care of this issue. I believe this will get approve from the senate by end of november and we have to see when congress approves it. After the approval of both houses it wont take more than 10 days to be a law.
                                          So do the best you can and pray to God. In this country I have learnt one thing.... What you strives for, you will get it... sooner or later.
                                          Take care and contact the senators. Once this will be in congress then we need to contact the congressmen.

                                          UNITED WE STAND.
                                          I'm also suffering and it is tough. I can feel your pain.
                                          Can you send me the link for full version of this bill?
                                          MY pd is 02/2002 and I have mailed the doucments to consulate in June 2005.
                                          Thanks
