USCIS Immigrant Fee

So, back in December, USCIS released information on a new $165 immigrant fee that took affect on February 1st, 2013. Now, one must pay this fee after they receive their visa package after a successful interview and before they immigrate to the US. At the interview, they hand out a notice explaining what the fee is and how/when to pay it. If you'd like to read it now, please click here. (Huge thank you to VJ member MsHogan for scanning and sending me this document, I truly appreciate it!) You can also read information about the fee on USCIS's website, here.

Tax transcript

Real quick update. Just got our 2012 tax transcript in the mail today. Requested it on the 21st, so a little over one week to receive, which is a little slower than previous times. It is mid-tax season though, so completely understandable.
