  1. sorry, double post

    sorry, double post
  2. I applied for advanced parole early last year. I got approved and went to Mexico in late April. My wife petitioned for me in July of 2017 (i485 since my i130 was already submitted and approved). In August we got a letter stating that I needed a sponsor because my wife's income was not enough. That same month I went through that "immigration physical" to make sure I had all of my shots and no TB. Mayor tip, don't loose your immunization card because you might end up paying through the nose for shots you may or may not have gotten after high school. I found a school friend that was able to sponsor me and sent back complete documents in September of 2017. On April 10th of 2018 we got the notice an interview date had been selected for my i485 case. My interview date was May 15th, 2018. I received a notice on May 18th that my i485 case was approved and I now have permanent residency for 10 years. Finally!! After being in the U.S since I was 4 years old, I have my permanent residency. I will update my timeline later but feel free to ask me any questions regarding advanced parole and any of the processes that follow. Again, if it weren't for this site that answered many of my questions when I first applied for DACA back in 2012, none of this would be possible. Thanks you to everyone that answered my dumb questions and everyone that is on here sharing the knowledge about these processes to the masses.
  3. I apologize for being absent for a long time.  I have been selfish because when I needed advice or knowledge about DACA and the process, this forum and it's members were the only ones that were always willing to help in any way possible.  I got caught up with life and growing up, being a father, trying to provide for my family and other things.  I guess I thought that since I already had my EAD, I had nothing else to do here.  I was dead wrong, we are still fighting the good fight not only for us but for the generations after us.  Now I find myself on another process trying to get permanent residency through advance parole.  If anyone has any questions about what I filled or the process in general, feel free to message me.

  4. Has Anyone Gotten Us Citizenship By Marriage ?

    I did the advance parole and I am now in the application process for permanent residency. I went back to my birthplace in Mexico where I had not been since I was 4 years old. It was culture shock to say the least. I visited my grandma whom I had not seen for a very long time and learned a lot about my roots and heritage. I was out of the U.S for a total of 6 days.
  5. Has Anyone Applied For Green Card While Under Daca?

    I am in the process of mine, I had to get a sponsor because my wife doesn't have enough income. Been just over 3 months since I sent the required forms with the information of my sponsor. Haven't heard anything yet.. In the USCIS website it says I may have to wait up to six months.
  6. Medical Interpreter

    ive been trying to look in hospitals. don't really know how to go forth with that here in Texas whether there are agencies or what you need to do some freelance work
  7. Medical Interpreter

    that's great! the course I took was for both court and medical interpreting. Since in SoCal there is a high demand for bilingual people in the court system so the school I went to threw both courses together. it was a bit more challenging but worth it in the end. I have been trying to find a gig like that here in Texas but haven't had any luck.
  8. Just Got Approved For Renewal!

    I got approved on the 17th, didn't call and I was already getting ready to engage my representative from congress
  9. Medical Interpreter

    my uncle was doing this in California and from what he said its really good money. I went to the training school that he went to and completed the course. I was supposed to work with him on the down low and get paid cash but since he had a firm, one of his partners didn't approve. So yeah, this is a good move to make decent money without having to go to school a lot.
  10. Just Got Approved For Renewal!

    congrats. this has been one of the fastest approvals I have read about. I sent mine Jan 9th and I haven't heard anything since my bios on 2/28.
  11. Is Anyone Familiar Or Has Tried The Infopass Option?

    I just hope the members of congress here in Texas will actually try to help and not be on the side of that judge.
  12. Is Anyone Familiar Or Has Tried The Infopass Option?

    I see, and here I was thinking that the INFOPASS would be a viable option for extensions. I will just reach out to the congressman/woman of my district. Thanks for sharing your experience!
  13. I have been doing a bunch of research on how to try and get an extension since I am reading about all the cases about permits expiring and not being able to get any answers from the people at the USCIS. So I reached out to the person that filled my original DACA application and I explained the situation. He told me that if and when your case has been pending for more than 90 days, you can fill out the request for an INFOPASS that you find on the USCIS site. There, you fill out your information and they set up an appointment to the nearest USCIS center according to your zip code. Once you set up an appointment, he said you need to take your social, id, EAD, copy or original check stub or money order you sent and the paper they stamp from your biometrics. He said also a letter from your employer signed by the highest up you can find also helps. He said that setting this appointment up and asking for an extension actually works, he has done it for a few of his customers. I am not at 90 days yet but will be soon. Has anyone on here tried this yet? Will it actually work? Please share your experience if you have.
  14. Drivers License

    ah, ok. well hopefully they do the same here in Texas if I get approved. it would be nice to have a DL for longer than 2 years.
  15. Coming Out Of The Shadows!

    wish I was still in Cali so I can attend this..
