    I wouldn't say America is merciless. What Americans have is an expectation that you won't need the government to help you: that you have enough brains, hustle and determination to make your own way in life without relying on a government nanny state who pays for you but quietly erodes your rights in the process.

    I really love your last sentence. Not only your rights,...but your freedom, individuality and the incentive to work harder. I hope Americans won't ruin the values and features that attract hard-working immigrants from around the world.

    Hello all
    Was wondering if there was somewhere in this forum or elsewhere where we could see the highest (known) case number for each region throughout the years? Thanks

    Hello and thank you!

    I am filling up DS-260 and it requires me to upload our marriage certificate in order to add my wife as an applicant. My question is, can I upload our marriage document without translating it to English? We are from Turkey, we will be doing the interview in Turkey and our marriage certificate is written in Turkish.

    Another question; I am working remotely from Turkey as an independent contractor for a US company, would it be a problem if don't specify the company name/address and only specify the job as "Software Developer Independent Contractor" and I put my home address (which is my actual office)?

    Thanks.

    How do you think that would help? Each year is different.

    They really are. In most of the cases spouses and in one case parent and child, both winners of the same DV year. In almost all cases they decided to proceed CP with one CN only, of course the one having more chances for approval due to education / other background history.

    And how many of these presumably confirmed cases are we talking about? What country?

    In my case it's totally true (have nothing to win by lying). Was completly taken aback (and confused) when I found out both me and my brother were selected. But I think it's something random, pure luck....no conspiracy in here. :D

    We're talking about 8-12 cases over the last 3 DV years. DV2015-DV2017 in Albania and/or Albanians having other residency but beneficiaries cuz of country of chargeability rule.
    The cases are reliable, based on FB group of 40k members and on private discussions.

    40000 members in an Albanian DV winners Facebook group?

    Oh, I didn't mean all of them are winners, even though Albania has regularly been amongst 3 top DV beneficiaries in EU area

    Sure dude.
    Albania has about 1.5k-3k winners a year. Even if every single one of those made it onto your Facebook group, which of course is highly unlikely, your group is just way too big for anything credible to relate to actual winners. You do know you can't believe everything you read on the internet, right?

    He is more food for conspiracy. My cousin was selected too (he already lives in the US). 3 from the same family? no that's some weird alien conspiracy worth investigating. :p

    Haha of course, I'm not 14 and I'm well educated but that was not my point... anyway I'll dig deeper on that and get back to you ;)

    Are you Albanian too?

    No. Why?

    PS: I was just kidding. It's just a random stuff,...rare but mathematically possible.

    Because that's what he's trying to say. Albanian families all get selected together with alarming frequency. Supposedly.
