    DV 2019 AOS Only

    The best I can do is what I already did - paint the picture for the purpose of giving you clarity. You know yourself, situation, background, etc better than I do, so I can’t give you suggestions on what you should do. I’ve already given you the tools you need to help you, so make what you...

    DV 2019 AOS Only

    Doing so will most likely lead to a denial of the AOS petition as that constitutes a fraudulent misuse of the NIV. Other things to consider with your proposed plan: 1. Depending on when you actually enter the US, you may not have enough time to complete AOS since your CN is above mid-range to...

    DV 2019 AOS Only

    1. Yes you can still CP process while still in the US. 2. The expiration date of the visa in your passport is irrelevant to your duration of stay, the visa is merely a piece of document that allows you to be admitted in a certain status. What determines the duration of your status is what’s...

    DV 2019 AOS Only

    Switching to CP is still a possibility for you at this point in time. You should however decide soon if you want to go that route since KCC will need to be notified in order to give them enough time to process your DS260 for a CP interview. This will involve them having enough time to process...

    Your already submitted DS260 is fine, that is not the issue. It could potentially be an issue if you needed to go back to the embassy to get a new visa in order to return to the focus. Like I previously posted, the issue is with AOS process/package submission which you’re yet to do. As long as...

    DV 2019 AOS Only

    Entering the US on a NIV with the mind of processing AOS is highly frowned upon. If you file for AOS less than 90 days following your return, your AOS petition could be denied because because you will be engaging in an activity that is inconsistent with the status you were admitted in which...

    DV 2019 AOS Only

    You’re not leaving mid-AOS if you’re yet to submit your AOS package, you have no pending petition that will become abandoned following your departure from the US. The implication of this trip is that you may have to wait for at least 3 months following your return to the US before you can file...

    DV 2019 AOS Only

    You can submit your AOS package with your 2017 tax returns and take the 2018 tax returns along to your interview if you wish to submit now.

    Child citizenship act of 2000, can I just get a passport?

    You daughter shouldn’t be entering the US with a foreign passport on ESTA if she’s already a USC. If she already has CRBA, she not eligible to enter the US on ESTA.

    1. Nope. Ignore the I-864 instruction, it’s not applicable to a DV based AOS petition. Go with a copy of the submitted I-134. 2. You don’t need a ‘no court record’ if you’ve never been arrested and charged accordingly. The ‘no court record’ requirement is only applicable to anyone previously...

    1. I guess the office address is fine under the US mailing address section. Just make sure you list your home address in the section asking for physical address. 2. The error is insignificant, no need to update the DS26 form.

    1. Just clip them together, I don’t see a need for labeling. And thanks for the update regarding the broken links - will look into those as time permits. 2. IRS tax transcripts can be found and requested from the IRS website.

    No one here knows - that’s the one million dollar question you should have asked at the INFOPASS.

    They may provide some update at an INFOPASS, no guarantee though.

    DV qualified passport but unqualified country of birth

    Yep! Like the two responses above - your wife was eligible to apply on the basis of being married to you, NOT because she carried a NZ passport. If she had been selected, both of you would have needed to prove you meet the educational or job experience requirements in order for her selection to...

    Anecdotal? :rolleyes: As in some old wive’s tales? That, it clearly isn’t. FYI: I wouldn’t have bothered to include the information on the spreadsheet if I wasn’t aware of the FACT that rejection or denial has happened in the past due to early filing.

    DV qualified passport but unqualified country of birth

    Eligibility is based on country of birth only, not nationality. If you’re married to someone from an eligible country, you may be able to apply and cross charge to your spouse’s country of birth - assuming of course your spouse meets the educational/work experience requirements if selected.

    No AOSer has reported receipt of that email, only those processing CP. No AOSer will receive it for sure, KCC does not process or schedule interviews for them. Thanks for updating the timeline spreadsheet.
