Thank you tj28. Which of States do you live in. I'm thinking it may depend on the state.
I went to dmv and i was told to get my social security first.
I then went to social security and i was told it's going to arrive in the mail with my green card since i got here in CR1 visa.
I've been waiting like kilode since then. Can't drive. Can't do nothing.

(Maryland). Did you go to social security office?. It can’t come in with your green card, they are two different agencies. When did you arrive? Did you come with international license? I was driving with my international license till I got my md license last week.

[quote author=GoneKayLoner post=71813519]Hello All. I've been a silent follower. It's just been interesting reading the comments of everyone here.
For those who paid their Green card fee in Nigeria before leaving and now living in the States, How long did it take to receive your Social Security and Green Card and how did you get busy before then?
And also for those who paid after arriving in the States?
[/quote

My social security came exactly 2 weeks after I arrived. I had to go to their office to apply. It came like 3 days after I went to apply. Green card came in d mail 3 weeks after I got in. I paid the day I left Nigeria. You can process your state ID/drivers license while you wait.

I've gone through this entire thread, and boy; it wasn't easy.
Anyway, I just wanted to ask, must one submit the police clearance certificate during NVC, processing.
I know its a must for interview, just wanted to know if its a must during NVC.

Yes you must submit scanned copies of your police clearance certificate and your finger print page to NVC. Mine was 3 pages in all. And you will take the originals with you to your interview. If it's expired before your interview you will need to update

Everything is going on well. Thank God. Got my SS in the mail 2 days after I went to the SSA office here in MD. My green card also arrived a week after. I didn't have to do biometrics or apply. I only got a txt msg when it was in production and when it was posted. You know you can track it? Have you tried to?

@wilsub.
You can add spouse and children to your petition..its better you do that now so that when you get your welcome letter and your ceac page opens up their details will already be included.
Go to. https://secureforms.travel.state.gov/ask-nvc.php
Under questions you'll see the option of adding spouse/children to your petition.

Thanks for your response. It is unmarried.
I'm planning to get married to her before I travel out. I have already paid for my green card.

That you paid for your green card doesn't mean you are a green card holder yet. You CANNOT get married till you go into the US and get your green card. And if you do and you somehow scale through without their knowledge now, it will still come out when you are filing for her because your marriage certificate will show when you married and when you entered the US. My advise is dont complicate issues for yourself especially if it's something avoidable and straightforward as this is. It won't only affect her filing, it will affect your status.
I wish you all the best.

Pls how long does it take to file for a spouse. I have just been granted an Immigrant visa. I hope to get married before I leave the country for America. I hope my wife could join me ASAP. Pls who can tell me the steps I need to take in order to file for her

What visa class? If your visa is unmarried son you CANNOT get married until you go into the US and get your green card. You will void your visa.
Your visa class will determine what steps to take.
Spousal visa is about 2 years. That's f2a.

AJEGBINJEKARAUN:
Can I select myself as choice of agent? My stepmum who petitioned for me does not have any clue about nvc stage.

This below is the instruction abt choice of agent.

Your first step is to choose an agent.

Your agent will receive communication from the NVC about your case. You may act as your own agent or you may choose your petitioner, a family member, friend, attorney, immigration professional, or any other person you trust. You may have an agent that represented you and the petitioner in the petition process with USCIS. However, you will need to formally select an agent to represent you for your visa processing.

To choose your agent, complete the Choice of Address and Agent (DS-261) form in the Consular Electronic Application Center.

You can be your choice of agent but it's better if you have someone who is living in the us already. My petitioner was my choice of agent but I called NVC more than she did. You are allowed to call as long as you have all the details about your case

I went to another SSA office y'day and filed out an application. So just waiting for the card now.

I picked up the driver's guide y'day as well. Meant to do a drug certification before going back for the tests. Hopefully will get that done on Monday.

Will expect the email then. I thought the green card will come in d mail.

I'm happy for you sis. Print it and take it to the interview. my visa issuance is delayed cos I didn't drop it at the interview. My passport was returned and I just sent it back after clarifying that. So whether they ask for it or not, pls give the consular officer and tell him/her you opted out of f2b. Wish you all the best at your interview. It's been a long journey

Thanks God. I learnt from a staff of Npc today that the birth certificate issued at their office is attestation and it last for just 6month, you do it when your time to travel is near, please how true is that?

I don't think attestation is valid for 6 months. Attestation I submitted to Uscis in 2011 is the same I sent to NVC last year and I still gave a copy of it at the embassy. I didn't even need to drop the new one I did last month(I did a new one because my petitioner submitted the original to uscis)

I was going though all the previous chat and I saw this question, they give preferance for those with kids, you will sit down and will also be interviewed on time cos of your kids, I could remember when I went with my baby, I got there late and I was the first they attend to cos of my baby.,

There's preference for people with children, elderly and preg women. In fact they went into the embassy first before any other perSon. People they were number 1 on the queue ended up being like no 10 because of family.

My interview was short as I did DNA a few years ago. He just asked 3 questions
He saw the DNA results in my folder and said he noticed I did DNA already. I said yes and then he asked
How long my mom has been in the us
When was the last time she came
Asked if I wanted him to upgrade me to F1 because he saw my mom's naturalization cert in my folder and I told him I opted out. He confirmed from me I wanted to retain the f2b and I said yes.
He then said visa approved.
My case is still showing administrative processing. Hopefully it will be issued this week.

The opt out approval is important as my sibling whose visa was approved like mine got a msg that he needs to pick his passport at DHL and return it when case is current. But we forwarded the email from Uscis Ghana this morning. We are praying they will see the mail before sending the passport back to DHL. We'll call tomorrow when they open. I don't know why they didn't write me abt that.
