Oh ok. I guess its the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) program casecheck. I recommend you track it by visiting this site: https://save.uscis.gov/CaseCheck/

If I may ask, is there any discrepancies in your i94 printout compared to your international passport? Information such as your full names, date of birth should match else there could be delays.

Concerning your AOS application. I recommend you call because if you don't, you might miss the biometrics appointment. Biometrics appointment is usually done a month after the first receipt notice (NOA1). When you call you will be speaking with a Tier 1 officer, please insist to speak to a Tier 2 officer as I heard the Tier 1 guys have little or no information.

Thanks bro, I appreciate... The is the result of the SAVE status check, does it indicate a headway ?

Meanwhile there's no discrepancies whatsoever.. However I will visit the office again to find out the status of the SSN application.

Good morning,so we got a mail for RFE yesterday and this is what they’re saying they need even tho we provided most of them.

1.photovopies of passport including biographical data pages and pages showing entry and exit stamps (we submitted this)

2.copies of travel documents eg boarding passes,hotel receipts.we didn’t submit the hotel receipts cos we were oblivious as at that time so we trashed them.

3.letters written to each other after your meetings referencing the specific date and place of your meetings

4.military orders or letters from commanding officers

5.affidavicts of friends,neighbors or other knowledgeable persons.(there’s a guideline for how that should be gotten too)

6.any evidence that will help to determine that you’ve met your beneficiary within two years

Now,we she came home last year,we didn’t have nobody to take our pictures so every picture we submitted were selfies we took ourselves but we had our traditional engagement this March and we sent a couple of evidences including receipts from vendors we employed and letters from both families of the intent to marry,she filed on the 15th or March and now they’re asking for evidence from the 15th of March 2017 to 15th March 2019,we only started dating last year and she came home 5 months after and we submitted every picture we took,so now is it Okay for us to submit the pictures we took after she came home again this year(March) even tho it’s out of the time range they’re asking for and is there anything else that should be done to make sure that we don’t get denied.this thing is pretty frustrating I have to be honest.ill be waiting for answers

What it means is that they are done with the verification. So they should have an answer for you by now. I'll recommend you print this out and show them when you go visiting so they don't tell you to come back again.

Re: USA Fiancee (K1) Visa Thread by LegitBachelor: 3:31pm On Jul 01
@Sukey, I recommend you resend the documents you had sent before. For the hotel receipt, you can try calling them to see if they can send you a copy. For flight boarding pass, any evidence that confirmed you actually did travel should suffice (eg entry stamp by CBP and/or Nigeria Immigration officials). If the airline sent you an email thanking you for the flight, you can also print those.

You cab also include extra documents that will prove your case even if they didn't request for it. See my earlier post on the recommendations I gave.

Finally you'll need to include a Cover Letter that will summarise and explain all the documents you are attaching.

Hi guys, I got something to share about those who are coming to the states soon. Please if you have someone in the states and you said you didn’t in your ds-160 please start deleting their numbers and all, and please no chats about working or such. One dude was deported yesterday because of this. Just throwing this out there. God bless.

No need to send in those because it won't prove your fiance's eligibility to petition. They want to be sure you guys met at least once within 2 years of filing the petition. What happens after filing the petition is irrelevant for now. However it can be relevant during the Embassy Interview.

If I may ask, was bride price paid during the traditional engagement?

Not much to say about it, the dude was taken in secondary screening which is normal during poe. And when they came out back, the other customs guy was telling the one I was with that dude had chats about coming to work with K1 and he had US contacts on his phone when he stated he didn’t in his da-160.

This is serious. I hear they can even see deleted messages. Trump is not joking. This is why its best to always say the truth at all times. There's nothing wrong with having US contacts. I told them I did and I wasn't denied visa. Theres also nothing wrong with working in the US with the K1 as long as you get married to your fiancee on entry and get a work permit or greencard. So the guy just shot himself on the foot by lying. It's well.

Yes, they can see deleted chats. We all know you can’t work until you have ead card but dude was probably telling his dudes to get him a job before filing aos

No bride price was paid,does it mean Anything or what?and again,we were oblivious as to what kind of pictures that the uscis usually needs as proof of contact so all the pictures we took were selfies and that’s what we were able to send,I guess they weren’t enough that’s why they’re asking for more evidence,we even sent picture of when I went to their family house for introduction but I guess that wasn’t enough.Can we get up to 6 people to write the letter for us and do they have to go to the court to get the affidavit and since we don’t have any more pictures from last year(we sent everything) what do you think we should do.And who writes letters these days again?we have never written letters to each other and they’re asking for letters.she said we started dating in 2017 but it was 2018( mistake on her side) but she stated that she came home 2018 July so we literally have no evidence from 2017 cos we didn’t start dating till 2018.what should we do

You're good then. Payment of brideprice is not allowed for K1 visa. Some Consular Offices during Visa interviews tend to probe further when they notice traditional occasions because they suspect that some form of traditional wedding ceremony took place. Ive heard of cases where the visa was delayed solely because of this. However I don't know about the USCIS guys who are adjudicating the i129F petition, they might probably not have any issues with it.

and again,we were oblivious as to what kind of pictures that the uscis usually needs as proof of contact so all the pictures we took were selfies and that’s what we were able to send,I guess they weren’t enough that’s why they’re asking for more evidence,we even sent picture of when I went to their family house for introduction but I guess that wasn’t enough.
Selfies are fine. I only submitted selfie photos during my time and it sufficed. Perhaps they misplaced yours. You can resend the pictures and then add some more that were taken prior to the petition. If you don't have any then send pictures taken after the petition.

Can we get up to 6 people to write the letter for us and do they have to go to the court to get the affidavit
I don't think they will have to go to court. There's a USCIS document they can fill and then sign and get it notarized. That should suffice. Those 6 people have to be US citizens I think.

and since we don’t have any more pictures from last year(we sent everything) what do you think we should do.
As I said earlier, resend all you sent and explain each photo. You may also wish to send other photos taken after the petition but that doesn't count because you are supposed to provide evidence of you guys meeting before the petition and not after. If you ask me, I'd say providing any other form of evidence of you guys meeting before the petition will be more useful. It need not be photos, even a letter detailing where you guys met which is signed by you and your fiance along with the witnesses can help. Other additionals include things like email or WhatsApp chats before the petition was filed that talked about where you guys met. Also you can include a printout of Google Map (the app is able to confirm if you've been to a place or not). The list is endless.

And who writes letters these days again?we have never written letters to each other and they’re asking for letters.she said we started dating in 2017 but it was 2018( mistake on her side) but she stated that she came home 2018 July so we literally have no evidence from 2017 cos we didn’t start dating till 2018.what should we do
Letters can be electronic. I think emails, WhatsApp Chats, SMS, facebook/Instagram/Twitter DMs, etc can suffice.

Yeah it's the last step of the K1 but it's just the beginning of the journey....still a lot of hurdles to cross (social security, marriage, drivers license, health insurance, work permit, green card, naturalization). But I'm not trying to scare anyone. We'll all make it in Jesus Name.

True. There's no official format from USCIS. There are several format online that can guide you. There are notary publics in Nigeria. Just Google and you will see them.

Its true they dont have to be US Citizens but I recommend you include one or two as their affidavit will have more weight than those from Nigeria. They can be the parents or siblings of your fiancee, they need not be friends or a reputable person. But if you don't have any in the States then fine. You're still good. Also I think 6 is a lot. 2 or 3 should suffice unless they specifically requested for 6.

You can send me a PM if you have any personal mails to send me.
