    If your husband is not on the DS-230 when it is filed, he will not get a visa at the same time as you. If not listed on it, does not matter how long that someone has been married, or anything else. The only one that can be added to it is a new baby.

    You are asking about requirements for licensure, etc., and anytime that you make changes in the middle with the legal name that you are using, there are usually problems that come up and it can take months to try to fix it. Many do not take on their husband's names in the first place. All you need to do is be able to produce a marriage license.

    The signature on the picture needs to match the signature on the application or they will not accept it, and it needs to be the same on everything, so make sure that everything matches.

    What is on your passport, and other applications?

    my signature in my application and my passport does not include my full name written in script. but the photo id form says to write my full name in script form in the blank for the signature. should i just write my full name in script in the blank for the signature and then sign my usual signature in the picture?

    All signatures are supposed to be the same, make sure that the one on the picture is a complete signature and that is what should have been used on the application as well.

    Suggest that you write your signature in full on the application next to where you wrote your other signature. All need to match, and it is easy to just fix it now since it has not been sent in.

    Not something that we can predict and the latest bulletin hasn't changed at all

    I keep stating that it is expected to be at least a couple of years if you are from the PIC countries and Mexico, do not expect it to be lifted anytime soon. If anything, it is only going to get worse because of the number of applicants keeps increasing.

    Please, lets get back to the topic that is being asked here about the VSC. There are already multiple threads on the retrogression and the October Bulletin, otherwise the questions will not get answered.

    All my Visascreen documents are being mailed separately, does that matter? E.g. My transcript will be sent to CGFNS by the Registrar's office of my college( I asked if I could pick it up and have it mailed in the same envelope with the the nursing information, they said no); the nursing school will be mailing their info separately, the BON will be sending the license verification separately, and I mailed my VSC application.
    There's no way I could have mailed them as one package. Is that going to me a problem? I am kinda concerned and hoping CGFNS has some way of matching the names /collecting the documents as they come in.
