For my mortgage application, there was a question about my legal status here. I provided my I797 approval since my Visa had expired. The lender returned with the following comment. How should I respond to this? Any inputs please? "This is acceptable but you sent the renewal. We would also need the following: Copy of current valid visa"

This is tricky 1) call the lender and inform them that the visa is not linked to your legal status in the country. If they have a different department that deals with such issues, ask to talk to them. 2) if you can't convince them, have a lawyer draft out a legal statement explaining your situation / or go for another lender. Do not send a copy of your visa until you are comfortable doing so. I'm today's charged environment I worry that low information bank personnel may assume your illegal.

This is the answer. Visa stamp is only required for travel purposes. Your stay in the US is based on your approved i797.

Send copy of I94 maybe?

Do you have your i140 approved?

Why can’t you send the copy of your visa stamped on your passport ?

Copy of expired visa, entry stamps, i94 & approved i797 and explain the situation. Usually underwriters would check with their legal team to make sure you’re eligible per Fannimae/Freddie mac guidelines but if it doesn’t work find another lender.

Husband told me the other week he had the first business trip scheduled that he would fly to. I don’t understand why that can’t be done virtually, given the last 1.5 years, but he seems to be set on the fact that he’s “expected” to travel for work and is booking the tickets. We both are vaccinated but have two very young children who aren’t. It’s not even Covid that’s at the top of my mind but rather the pointlessness of resuming business travel. Am I overreacting?

I don’t know who to ask for references. Since law school I worked at a non profit for 2 years. Then clerked. Was at a firm two months before it closed and now at my current firm. I have one from my supervisor at the nonprofit. But I’m not sure where to get my others. I could get my judge but not sure they’d be willing/have good things to say. We didn’t have a good relationship. Is it okay to ask someone else from the nonprofit or maybe my co-clerk? It’ll be six years but someone from internship?
