Default Buddies! Evidence is important! ( must Read! )

Guys! What ever action you do regarding immigration please be adviced that you have to have an evidence, like

1) You call any customer service then use a voice recorder and be on speaker phone.

2) Send pkg to USCIS, then keep a tracking info from the fedex website as a pdf and send it to your personnel email.

3) If your check is encashed by USCIS or HLS, download the online chk copy and also the stamement and send it to your personnel email.

4) Any important questions/discussion/answers you dwelt with your laywer, end of day, send an email saying this is what I understood on what we discussed, so are we in same page? to your lawyer.

5) Always have some cheatsheet to track the mailing dates, received dates, called date, dead lines etc and keep using it and updating it. (good for your rebate tracking too )

6) Let others know what tips you have !


Man! when big big things in our history

like Taj Mahal ( http://www.stephen-knapp.com/was_the...dic_temple.htm )

and Red Fort ( http://www.stephen-knapp.com/photogr..._influence.htm)

get under disputes just because they lack proper evidence ,

where are we! so be careful with Evidence!

Did any of the tips useful to you?


Tnx

Default 1 more Tip

Also One More which I am in process of doing,

If possible have all the originals scanned and pkg it as password protected zip file and store it somewhere, this might help you if you don't find your originals on time. One of my friends had cut a CD (encrypted) and has put the originals in the Bank locker just to avoid accidents like fire,etc.

Default It is a must

As dilvahabilyeha suggested, it is a must for everyone to scan all your records (everything from birth certificate to passport to I797, I-94s) and keep them as images in your laptop (password protedted) and in a backup device.

This will be a weekend worth of an effort, but definitely a highly recommended stuff. Scanning passports and importantt documents is a real must for all. I have not done it myself, and plan to do it.

Every household MUST have Fax, Photocopy, scanner and printer, especially in these situations where 500K applications are expected in this month filing.

If there is no evidence how do you know history is false? By your own admission, there is no evidence that the Taj Mahal was not built by Shah Jahan, in which case you cannot disagree with de facto History.

Besides, Stephen Knapp is a Hare Krishna (hence, the motive) and it is well known that Hare Krishnas though generally very ignorant about science and history, write books and publish them nonetheless misleading the unsuspecting public. Some linguists have critically reviewed Stephen Knapps works and exposed his ignorance. You can find some with a google search.

But we are digressing...back to collecting and maintaining evidence

Default Scanning records...

How else did folks send docs to their lawyers/law firms? In my case each and every doc was scanned and sent as PDF, and I have a PDF of every single doc that exists in my boxes full of docs. Pretty soon I'll need to rent some storage for the original docs - may need a mini warehouse for all this stuff.... (of course I'm kidding, but that's quite a lot of docs - education, experience, pay stubs, W2s, taxes, H1 & H4 Receipt Notices, Approval Notices, Labor Certs apps, certified Labor Certs, I-140 approval(s), I-1485 apps, moving notices, copies of passports, bank statements.... etc. .

Hopefully, some bright day in the next 10-25 years, we'll get a green card, and that may bring an end to this surreal state of being shackled to your documents endlessly.... it's like living in a twilight zone.

Perhaps USCIS should ask for docs once and store them electronically (heck, we can all submit these docs electrnocially, can't we?). Give me a login/profile on a USCIS.gov web site where I can maintain electronic copies of these, upload PDFs as required (and also as future reference, download them as required). USCIS should also post PDFs of all Receipt Notices, Approval Notices, and other documents it generates, to these user profiles.

Once this happens we won't need to FedEx them a repetitive set of documents (repetitive for most part.... ) which end up weighing down the FedEx truck by a couple of pounds for each such filing.

A Utopian dream, but it's not outside the realm of possiblity if USCIS can come even close in terms of technology to the guy next door who owns/operates a web 2.0 web site from his garage... (and with any luck, given an EAD and at some point a Green Card, I'd love to go start one of my own.... .

Can we please keep these things out of IV? There is a lot of crap going on on all these... most of them bad PR agenda by folks with vested interests in fundamentalism. Who cares who built it? It's beautiful, enjoy it!!

Please refrain from mentioning such things on IV. There are better things to do in life!!

Very True! Having a paper-less operation would really accelerate things! But you know who knows they are under the lobbying pressure from the courier companies or the paper companies . I hope they come out of this "Take No Logic" attitude and implement better "Technology" to make things move quicker.

I tried to see the pictures but literally they don't add up for anything. BTW why did they take b/w pictures? Does they want to some how prove that these are "old" pictures dated back to shahjehan era and it resembles to a temple. Its hard for me to buy those things when its not been proved.

And according to Wikipedia, In 2000 India's Supreme Court dismissed Oak's petition to declare that a Hindu king built the Taj Mahal and reprimanded him for bringing the action.


This forum is for Immigration issue's lets keep it that way. And more importanly please bring different cultures to this country and not political ideologies.

OOPs! I'm not bringing anything political here Buddy! As someone said, who ever built it, we need not care, just enjoy it, I respect and feel that brings more peace than the pride achieved on which builder side we are. I brought this into context because, When such huge famous things are under disputes and REQUIRE EVIDENCES, we should be prepared with our evidences of our own actions and docs pertaining to the immgration, so that was my idea! I can edit the first post if you want! No Problem!

Zip them all together and put a password ( atleast 12 chars or more) for that zip file. that's what I do. I started to do mine with the help of my dad, he came here recently and was feeling boared, so gave him this small task, he is happy scanning my docs and saving in a folder, later I'll zip them.
