Hey all.

I haven't seen this type of thread on Nairaland. Been thinking of creating this for a while now so people (everyone) in similar situations will have a guide.
I noticed that Immigrant visa threads here mostly is about people that their Immediate family filed for them (father, mother, siblings etc).
what about the rest of us with no immediate family that are citizens?. What about people getting married to a USC?.
This thread will focus on adjustment of status (B1/B2, J1, F1, H1b etc) to PR through marriage to a USC
Kindly note that i am not married to my gf yet. We have been dating now close to 2 years (will be 2 years in few days grin grin) and it has been awesome (it does have its ups and down too grin grin). we finally decided it is time (well she convinced me beyond reasonable doubt..lol) and we are gonna get marry pretty soon.
So i was like "why not create a thread to document the journey for others to gain one or two things and also to get advise about paperwork amnd how to file for adjustment.

Kindly note that : Marrying a USC for the sole purpose of gaining a permanent stay is illegal and seen as Immigration fraud and it is a deportable (if there's a word like that) offense. I AM NOT and DO NOT encourage anyone to do that (Marriage fraud) for the purpose of staying in the US. (if you do am, na your own wahalah)

I do however wanna share my story and journey for the purpose of enlightenment and encouragement and also to get various inputs WITHOUT giving out personal details

I will be updating the thread as events unfolds and juicy backstory plus all the hustling too


Big Bro, thank you very much for the wonderful information you have shared on this thread.

Please can you recommend a good school in the Caribbean one can attend that has scholarship. I have BSc in Electronics and Computer Engineering and Masters in Information Technology just thinking Caribbean could also be a good link to integrate with USA. I plan of doing my PhD while I can also work. I don't mind when on holidays could travel to US and work based on the information you have shared.

I look forward for you guide.

Thank you

Mind you tip of guideline and direction could help with out following all his ways.We have different career path. So asking him is not a crime either copying him. Read well his post and see that he encouraged people on trying another route. Right now am already researching on schools for PhD being funded in the Caribbean.

Allow those you are ready to help make available information.

Thank you.

The truth of the matter is; it is very hard to get funding in Caribbean Island. Unless you are exceptionally luck.

Good morning bro,

Thanks for the piece of information. I came across University of West Indies in Barbados. After I checked the requirement etc. For PHd in computer science in which there are numbers of research courses under , related to IT. I discovered they have funding called UFC.

And they still require one to pay some fees. No sure if it is just the service fees or tuition. I will thoroughly check the PDF when am less busy.

Maybe OP (Mouth Action) could also beam more light on it if he has the idea of the UFC funding for some courses.

Thanks DeeTus.

I just finished my final year exams and already sketching a map to travel to Canad for studies (and hustle ofcourse).
However, I am a confused as what level of academic pursuit to file during admission application.

I am torn between applying for undergraduate studies with WAEC.
or for postgraduate studies (but this 2nd option will require a lot of time and patience to assemble required documents; like university transcript and NYSC cert.)

But time waits for no man.
@blowjobs with your exposure and experience, your inputs here will be greatly appreciated with reasons.

Brother,
That's what I'm trying to do.....but it doesn't hurt to say a "word" to you guys as well....(even in a patriarchal country such as beloved Nigeria).
He doesn't have to answer...and he didn't.
Doesn't stop me from saying it though....

Except you want me to buy Hyundai Elantra. That is the cheapest 2017 car i know. However, you need to consider the 2nd hand value of a car. not how cheap (and fancy) it is. I haven't seen an Elantra with good 2nd hand value.
bros, do universities in The US accept 2.2? Also how much will I need to secure a student visa, and how much do I need in my block account?

No...i am not.
But JW's don't have any exclusive rights to the word "brother".
Although, I am a follower of Christ, I actually was using the word "brother" in general.
In the Black American community, the word is used also as a term of endearment to refer to one another...just as "sister" would refer to females.
So now since you've been given a brief lesson, do you still prefer I call u something else?
Cause calling u "Man of the Year" might take too long....too many unnecessary words don't u think... smiley
Gotta really go...talk with u later.
