    I am sure you must have thought a lot before the 'foreclosure' came into your mind. Here is an advice. If there is not too much that you will have to put out from your own pocket, then it is better to take the hit and move on.

    If you do foreclose, it might not be the best for credit history as well as in some random cases, job search. Jobs usually do a background check and that includes credit check in some cases as well. I hope it has no bearing but in some cases can. I don't think it will have any impact on your GC. Even if you don't have plans to buy a house, there are far more things that can impact. None of us want to live on credit but in US it is almost a necessary evil. Car, credit cards and the other nine yards that come with it also become scarce for the next few years. So, tread carefully.

    Have you discussed with your bank? Foreclosure is a huge hit for the bank and they may be able to work with you on what you owe.

    All the best.

    people who try to make quick money in couple of years by investing in house is ............... It is better to go and try it out in Las Vegas how lucky you are in making money instead of trying it out in real estate market with the span of 1-2 years in mind.

    Even if someone wants to make quick money, here are the few tips. Also these tips are tips and not guidelines.

    0. Know your limits. If you earn 100K, your buying power by thumb rule is 300K. So on saferside start searching with the range of 250K-260K. VERY IMPORTANT RULE.

    1. Check the rental cost where you live. Example if 2br apt is 1200, then try to limit your mortgage, taxes etc within 1500 assuming you buy at least 3br house.

    2. Reverse calulate the down paymet you have to put by subsituting your monthly payment ( apartment rental cost in your area + house tax + $300). Calculate the % of down payment from the above formula.

    If the down payment comes to 10-15%, then it is worth buying than renting in your area. If the down payment is above that, then try to meet it. In worst case put 20-30% down payment to keep your mortgage payment lower.

    Again, the above information is based on my house search and analysis. Others might have different opinion. Please take it if it is worth for you otherwise just ignore it.

    I heard that we have to provide all the address where we stayed in USA for filing I485. But very first time I came to USA almost 6-7 years back for short term and I do not remeber the actual address. Basically i do not remeber very first two address when I came here for short term. Is it a matter of concern.

    I believe if you get your Credit score reports from Experian and others, it lists all the addresses you ever lived in USA. You can get free Credit score reports from agency once a year.

    Do you know why we are having GC delays ?

    1. Country cap for visa numbers
    2. Visa numbers wasted by USCIS by their inefficiency

    EB1 visa never belonged to EB2 or EB3 category. What if there were enough genuine EB1 people to claim all the EB1 visas. There won't be any spillovers. Spillovers are bonuses. It is never our right to claim those.

    If you want your GC faster, work with IV for country cap removal and recapture.

    Have you donated a single dime for IV's cause ?We always find it easy to go against fellow immigrants than fighting the injustice at root.
    Look at the following thread to see how easy it is to resolve GC issues if country caps are removed.

    Dear Mr./Ms. gc28262

    My understanding is this is a forum where we can express our thoughts without any fear or prejudice.

    I agree with you that the main reason for the GC delay is the two causes you have mentioned. The Country cap is based on the current law (I am not saying the law is good). However along with the main causes for the delay the fraudulent uses of EB1 visa #s are also causing extra delay. Thus along with the effort to remove the main cause of delay we should work on the other cause of delays too.

    I am also agreeing that as per the current law the L1A - Senior Level Manager can get their GC processed as EB1 and get GC within six months. I agree that this is the current law.

    My main concern is the misuse of this law. People who should not get L1A visa are getting L1A using fraud and taking the EB1 visas which otherwise as per law would have trickled down to EB2.

    You may be ok with the fraud being done by many of the L1A visa holders and their sponsors. However I am not and I shall support any steps taken by the IV member "L1Fraud".

    You may think that the spillovers are bonuses and it�s ok if we do not get them. I differ with you; I feel if someone using fraudulent methods takes our bonuses away we need to protest against that.

    Regarding donating to IV think I am not accountable to you. Please note that this is a forum where everyone can express their views without attacking each other personally.

    I respect your views and hope to get the same from you :).

    I think, you meant earlier. No I won't because it won't yield anything. Its water under the bridge.

    I did mean later not earlier! It would yield you your GC! Most GC approved this month so far has gone to people with PD 2006. One of those is possibly yours!

    So go ahead and file a lawsuit.

    I've also found more details about Name Check at
    Name check:

    Name check addendum:

    Name Check vs FOIPA:

    1. Did anyone use the following phones to check the status of their Name Check case:

    FBI Name Check Status (Main Line) (202) 324-3625
    FBI NNCP Public Inquiry Voice Line (202) 324 2399
    FBI Name Check Inquiry Fax (202) 324-3367 (Mention Name/DOB/A#/Ph#/Addr#/Email/Fax)

    2. If someone used the FBI Name Check Inquiry Fax how long did it take for them to get back to you (if ever).

    3. Has anyone requested their FOIPA and if so how long did that take to receive a response?

    My wife and I both have filed forms N400 in October of 2006 in Minnesota (Nebraska Processing Center). USCIS received our applications on October 10th, 2006. On October 18th both of us received the fingerprints requests, which have been processed on October 27th. My wife’s case has been approved in February of 2007. She had her citizenship interview on March 16th, 2007 and became the US citizen on April 11th, 2007 after taking the Auth of Allegiance.

    I have not heard anything about my case since the fingerprints appointment. I have tried calling the USCIS Customer Service Number but they did not have any updated information about my case. I have also spoken with the Immigration Officer in the local USCIS office (InfoPass appointment) on July 27th, 2007. I have learned during that interview that my case is pending due to the FBI Name Check. The estimate that has been given to me was as long as 3 to 5 years, maybe more.

    So as of now my application is pending together with 320,000 others. Well since it's been pending for almost a year now I'm a proud member of 152,000 who had been waiting for more than six months, slowly moving to join more than 61,000 lucky ones that had been waiting for more than two years. Hence my next question.

    4. Did anyone hear the Name Check clearing between one year and two? Based on all of the people I've talked to it either took just a few months or more then 2 years. Seems to me once they put your file in that special pile it will not take less than 2 years.

    Flying through Asian Countires is not an option for people residing in East Coast. I am travelling to India in the next week Via Amsterdam. I am told by the consulate that we do not need Transit Visas. My H1B Visa is expired and I am travelling on AP. Did any one hear differently?


    This confirms what my travel agent told me .. I'm flying next week to India on NWA (JFK-Amsterdam-HYD) .. I will be travelling on AP with an unstamped H1B .. No Transit Visa required!

    Suppose they reject the 485 app on July 2nd after they receive it then will they cash our checks or just return them to us.

    No...I don't think they will encash your check!

    I am july 2nd filer, got my receipt numbers by calling USCIS. My data was entered in their system on Oct 5th. I called them today and the Immigration Official gave them. I also filed for my wife, but still her information is not yet there in the system. My application went to NSC, signed by R.Mickels at 9:01 AM, but transferred to TSC as my receipt number starts with SRC.

    Good Luck to everybody else who yet to receive the receipts...

    I am a dependent of my husband's process - my PD is now current, is it possible to switch and have an I-485 application where I am the primary applicant and he is the dependent, so we do not depend on his company anymore?

    I do not want to take anyone's else opportunity by getting another A#, just want to know if there is a way to switch the roles.

    Hi All!
    I have my 140 approved ,in order to apply for I485 do I need stamped H1 visa in my passport?
    I dont have my H1 stamped since 2003 ,I have I 94 valid until oct.2007.
    then accordingly we can go to canda or my country to get it stamped the earliest,if it is mandatory.
    Your input is appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Why don't you use direct flights to India. There is Continental from NY & American from Chicago to Delhi everyday. If you directly book from their websites, the prices are quite reasonable. At least American I know also serves Asian Vegetarian (meant for Indian veggies) food.

    Well the problem is there are very few airlines flying direct and everyone is going for it. You cannot get those tickets and even if you will, it will be expensive. I just recently gone through this pain.

    Hey J(erk) Thomas,

    For all the geniuses out here, how many companies like Google or Microsoft or yahoo came out of India in the last 20 years? Yeah, that is what I thought too.. BIG ZERO. But if you read J(erk) Thomas' response, one would have thought that India is full of competitors for Microsoft and Google today :D :D :D

    dude, how many immigrants/H1/L1/GC/Gc->US citizens work for google/Msoft/Yahoo. And if you are naming these corporations as the benchmark of success/technical excellence why do you not listen to what they say about visa programs?

    11-13 11:23 AM
    I am assuming they have a clerk who has been instructed to do this.
    Lets not worry about it, lets keep sending the letters

    If clerk is doing this as per instruction means, we are being noticed and that is precisely what we wanted anyways. I don�t think USCIS higher ups have any malicious intent. Whole issue may be due to lack of training of IOs.

    06-29 04:32 PM
    My Guess is , It is a rumour . since the USCIS suspended the I -140 Premium Service for the month of july . It clearly indicates they are aware/expecting many of the I -485 filings from July 1st and do not want to promise I- 140 decision in 15 days during July .
    Yes, I am of the same opinion. USCIS wants to stop the premium processing for I-140 only because it anticipates large volume for I-485. I don't see why it would stop the cash-cow (premium processing) and stop taking I-485s too!!!
