US Government Shutdown Affect on Immigrations

no thumb

The US Government is possibly shutting down on 19 Jan 2018 if legislators cannot agree on a federal budget for 2018. If they agree on at least a short term solution, they can extend the decision to 16 Feb 2018.

If the government is shutdown, how will this affect the immigration services? Specifically, K1, K3, CR1 and green card which is what most of our community is going through.

From our quick glance at the resources below, we can see that it not shut down USCIS or Department of State (the main organization doing immigration services) but may delay them. The articles indicate that these services may shut down if the government is shutdown for a long period of time.

i751 petition to remove conditions on residence 10 Year green card

i751 petition to remove conditions green card fill out form chaos

i751 petition to remove conditions on residence walk-through. In addition to filling out the i751 form, you will need to gather evidence. Check out our video on this here:

10 Year Green Card i751 (Gathering Evidence 1)

If you come to the US on a NON-immigrant (k1) visa you may have the option to stay longer with a i485. If you plan on staying in the US (legally) for longer than your visa allows you will have to do a form I-485, adjustment of status.

Form I-485 is for people in the United States to apply to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to adjust to permanent residence status or register for permanent residence (also known as Green Card).

If you came here on a k1 visa, the green card the USCIS gives you will be a conditional 2 year green card. After 2 years you actually have to file an i751 to remove those conditions.

The i751 is a petition to remove the conditions of the 2 year green card which will make it a 10 year green card. It is “for a conditional resident who obtained status through marriage to apply to remove the conditions on his or her residence. requires evidence”. This document requires lots of evidence to show that you were in a real marriage.

Over the years we have been collecting that evidence. So far what we have is:
– Travel documents (itinerary, tickets, photos with landmarks, receipts)
– tax documents filing joint
– bills with both of our names
– health insurance (with both names)
– car insurance (with both names)

These documents show that we live in the same place for years and have joint interests together.

Judicial Branch Bans Presidential Trumps Visa Ban 2

no ban

4 feb, 2017, The Visa ban on 7 countries has been temporarily suspended.

The Judicial branch of the government just banned President Trump’s ban… but will President Trump ban the ban that banned his ban!

On 27 Jan, 2017 Present Trump signed Executive Order “Protecting the Nation from Terrorist Attacks by Foreign Nationals”. (Executive Order 13769)  Which banned immigrant and nonimmigrant visa for citizens of 7 different countries (Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, Libya).  

This affected student, family, fiance, special visas from citizens of these countries.  Initially, it even affected green card holders from those countries but President Trump just made a revision

On February 1, White House Counsel Don McGahn issued a memorandum to the heads of State, Justice, and Homeland Security departments clarifying that the ban provisions of the executive order do not apply to lawful permanent residents

On February 2, a federal judge in Detroit ruled that the order not be applied to permanent residents nationwide and permanently, given the White House’s prior declaration that the order did not apply to permanent residents, in the case Arab-American Civil Rights League v. Trump.

On February 3, Federal Judge Robart removed the ban on immigrants/nonimmigrants and refugees from those 7 countries with a temporary restraining order.  Visa holders and refugees going through the process or on there way to the US are being allowed in by the Department of Homeland Security.  The State Department and their Embassies in those 7 countries are now processing visas again.   

On February 3, U.S. District Judge James L. Robart on Friday entered a temporary but nationwide stop to the order, saying he concluded the court “must intervene to fulfill its constitutional role in our tripart government.”

DHS has suspended any and all actions implementing the affected sections of the Executive Order entitled, “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States.”


“We have reversed the provisional revocation of visas,” the State Department official said in a statement. “Those individuals with visas that were not physically canceled may now travel if the visa is otherwise valid.”

Thank you for great conversations.  We don’t always agree but its really cool to talk to people that think and research instead of believing what fits their narrative the cool thing is that some of their logic and facts made me really think about my own positions on this issue and that is why its good to talk.

USCIS Increase fees Adjusting Immigration Benefit Application and Petition Fees (k1 green card)

USCIS K1 Fee Increase

#USCIS has increased the fees for US petitions.

“The new fees will be effective Dec. 23. USCIS is almost entirely funded by the fees paid by applicants and petitioners for immigration benefits. The law requires USCIS to conduct fee reviews every two years to determine the funding levels necessary to administer the nation’s immigration laws, process benefit requests and provide the infrastructure needed to support those activities.

Fees will increase for the first time in six years, by a weighted average of 21 percent for most applications and petitions. This increase is necessary to recover the full cost of services provided by USCIS. These include the costs associated with fraud detection and national security, customer service and case processing, and providing services without charge to refugee and asylum applicants and to other customers eligible for fee waivers or exemptions.”
