      Hi Sm1smom!
      I am currently on OPT Extention (expires on February 28th 2016)
      Lucky to win the DV, low case number for Asia (3XXX)
      I saw what you posted for DV winners 2014, should I go by that? any major changes in the process?
      Thank you so much for being awesome around here!

        There's a new DV 2016 AOS thread in the forum. If you're planning on processing AOS, I suggest you go through it and post subsequent questions on it.

      Hi sm1smom, I was having a fiancée and because we were not married I did not include her in my lottery process so now am getting ready to marry her on the 13th of June before leaving for the state on 27th June.
      My question now is what other process or means can I go through for my wife to join me after I left?
      Also, how long will it take me bring her there?
      Thanks for your time.

        Please post your question in the forum rather than asking Susie, Simon and I the same question separately.

      the DS260 form its says this-
    6. the251
      the251
      "Before we can process your Diversity
      Visa application, each applicant in
      your case must complete Form
      DS-260, the Online Immigrant Visa
      and Alien Registration Application. To
      access the online form, click on the
      link to the right of an applicant's
      name below, under the "IV
      Application" heading." what does this
      mean? my form is not processed yet?
      my CN is 27*** should I be worried and what can I do about it?.

      @sm1mom.
      I see that you are a guru in FAM manual.
      I am really worried about my photos.
      They were older than 6 months and a bit stretched .the kids have grown quite a bit. I had issues with internet during edv form submission and I only found out that I had used earlier photos after I had submitted the entry.
      is it worth the risk , what does the manual say?
      Do we have previous denials due to photos?

      Thank you for your respone on my confuse!
      Yes I think that Mixed the Background Check with AP!
      But the Background check affect the AP ,why not mixing them?
      1. Sm1smom
        Sm1smom
        Background check does not affect AP, background checks may lead to AP but it is not the only reason a person may end up in AP. So it makes no sense to mix up the two terms.

      Hi Mom. While filling the ds260, we unfortunately failed to mention that my hubby's job after college was that of a teacher for about three years before he went to the US for further education. Our cn is afxxx23xxx and though we have just realized our blunder, i wonder if it isnt too late to unlock the ds. I am the principle. Whats your advice?
      1. Sm1smom
        Sm1smom
        Sorry for the delayed response, just coming across this. To answer your question, I don't think that's a costly mistake especially since your husband is not the principal applicant, I wouldn't unlock the DS form for that if I was in your position. However, when you show up for the interview, you can inform the CO about the omission and ask if you could update the information before signing the form.

        In that case, leave the firm as it is. The spelling error can always be explained at the time of your interview. Your mom is not a beneficiary, they wouldn't be paying too much attention to such an error in this case.

      Dear Mom,
      I have my friend with CN of early AS56XX he is also from Nepal and he is insisting me to ask u when he will be current and when will he receive his 2NL. We will really be thankful to you for your comment on this.
      1. Sm1smom
        Sm1smom
        Your friend is likely to become current same time as you, 2NL could be received February/March.

        Meanwhile, if you have any other question, just post them in the forum instead of writing on my wall and that of BritSimon asking us both the exact same question!

        Your CN is likely to become current April/May 2015. As for the Nepal cut-off number for DV 2016, I have no idea.

        Also you need to make sure you've granted users permission to update the spreadsheet otherwise no one else outside of you will be able to update it.

        Just in the off-chance you haven't do so and have no idea on how to do that, please check the following link for sharing instructions:

        The google shortener is great! Thanks a lot! I have already granted access for anyone to edit and input data to the spreadsheet. Can you give it a try?

        I tried and I was able to update it. I made some suggestions regarding how you could possibly set up the spreadsheet. Take a look at sheet/tab 2 on the spreadsheet to see my suggestions. Feel free to use or go with whatever you prefer.
