Good day everyone, please where should I mail the F1 opt out letter. NVC doesn’t seem to know. They only provided USCIS phone number and it’s hard to get anyone on the phone. Thank you

Mail your opt out letter to the department of homeland security (DHS), Ghana office. That office has jurisdiction over such matters from Nigerian applicants. The email I used for mine in 2016 was USCIS.Accra@uscis.dhs.gov
Best wishes.

Interview questions weren’t much , right after the security checks we waited for like 45 mins before I was called, a white lady interviewed us , firstly she asked me to take the oath on behalf of me and my kid, she asked who petitioned for us, how did you meet him?,what type of wedding did you have?, who attended the wedding (told her and she asks about my hubbys parents told her they were not based here), she asked if my parents attended (told her just my dad) then she goes on to ask for hubbys current job, his former job,then she asks for pictures(showed her then she further asks again that okay I thought you said your mum attended d wedding and I still said no, she goes on to ask where my husband stays in the us and how many times he has visited, and then I heard the magic words, wasn’t even listening to the rest , she gave me d white paper and I left. Thanks so much to everyone in this forum , you all are blessed

Hello family...quick question:
Can one act on (or continue with the processing) of a filing that was done as far back as 2003...? The filing was done by my folks (who are now naturalized) but they didn't follow through with it.

I have a USCIS Receipt Number, but don't know wether there's a "deadline" of sorts - for one's Application to be acted upon.

Basically, can they continue from wherever they might have stopped as per their 2003 filing?

Thanks for any answers...I'm just so #confused!

Did you get number for your case for. USCIS and do you know your priority date.

Do you know if the application was approved?
I'm presuming this started as F2B (Unmarried daughter of LPR)

Are you married now and did you you get married before your parents naturalised?

Answers would determine if your case maybe valid.

At the very best you're an F3 but F3 status for (other countries),has past 2003 and I believe any application that nvc doesn't hear from him n a year or so after priority date is current would be considered abandoned.

At the worst case scenario your application was void anyways spending on your response to any particular f those questions

Did you get number for your case for. USCIS:. Yes I did

Do you know if the application was approved: No, I dont embarassed cry

Are you married now? Nope, still unmarried

- in view of a worst case scenario, can I reopen my case if I have the USCIS number? I just stumbled on a place my folks wrote it down (old people's diary).

I don't think you can reopen a case that is deemed abandoned. Your patents would need to redo it so wait time will reset again 7years or more
You can also check visajourney for advice.

Based on your being married you're F3 so you have a 13-14 year wait if you check monthly Visa Bulletin

NOTHING YOU CAN DO TO REDUCE THE WAIT TIME

Not even a lawyer can do that, don't waste your money

Just bear in mind that if your people contacts USCIS, you will be asked to start a fresh process. 2003 is a long time and everyone with the priority date has moved on. Have them contact Uscis but they should just start a fresh Application for you

Congrats. It was because you had a kid with you. I don't think they bother to ask immigrant moms with kids. They believe the kids is enough stress already. When I got to the port of entry with my 3boys, they were even helping me fill out the blue form to declare what I had. I was expecting them to start asking me questions, for where? They were just being so nice, and was like, You got your hands full today. I just smiled, for my mind I say una really know as e be me.

Hi guys, its been a while. Wanted to give a little update, I waited for 3 weeks to get my SSN but it didn't come through so I went to their office to apply again. You can verify the address they have of you at the port of entry so you would be sure they have the right address to mail your social security number to.

As regards medicals, if you dont have immunisation records they would charge you for that depending on the hospital its mandatory.

I know its a long wait, but just be a patience my people it would all be worth it. As per career you can start looking at what you would like to do while you wait. For me I switched to I.T and it payed off cos its in high demand here so put that in mind while you wait.
