提交婚绿申请已经快半年啦。差不多在提交过两个月的时候打完了指纹,并且status变成ready for interview。我猜应该是准备的材料比较完善吧。分享一波,求快些收到面试通知~~

背景:老公是绿卡已工作,我是F1学生,在用opt工作。老公是I864的sponsor。我本科的时候来过美国做交换生,所以需要j1 waiver来申请绿卡。申请地点是chicago。

策略:听说USCIS审的包裹越少,效率会越高。我有STEM OPT,提交申请的时候还有快两年时间,所以没有申请I765。疫情期间怎么也回不了国,没有申请I131。这些之后有需要应该可以再申。btw, 第一次准备材料的时候还是去年刚结婚,那时候需要I944,在等j1 waiver期间,这个规定又改了,所以能少交很多材料。

申请资料心得:


  1. 我采用的方法是完全follow form instructions,如果一份材料在多个表里需要,甚至一个表里提过几次,我就交多份。

  2. 有一个总体的cover letter,每个package有相应的cover letter。package里面的资料都做好标号,和cover letter保持一致。

  3. 我在每一页材料的页尾(正式的form 除外)都填写了自己/老公的A#和名字,还有对应的注解(比如Beneficiary’s I-20 for OPT authorization)。

  4. 最后交的材料,要去掉所有的订书钉,然后用比较少的夹子固定每个package,分别放到文件夹里,尽量做到user/reader friendly。具体大家可以参照uscis 有个官方的form filling tips。

  5. 提交的时候,要再查一次form version,防止在准备过程中,uscis给了更新版本的form。



免责声明~ 这个list仅供参考。uscis的form变化还是很快的,建议大家仔细读instructions。I130 prove Family Relationship as Bona Fide Marriage, 除了instructions推荐的项目,还可以自由发挥,加更多有利的proof。

祝每个申请的宝宝顺顺利利,马到成功!
