arrowAOS from VWP

Me and my wife have been married for 23 years. We both had green cards for about 10 years. She went back home for family medical problem in 2013 and because she stayed for too long, she lost her green card status. She recently came back to US under the VWP program with the intent to go back to our home country before 90 days.


I am now a citizen and I learned that I can file AOS for her. However, from what I have read online, a lot of people are against it. Has anyone heard of any successful story about filing for AOS from VWP program? Is it too risky? Any input is appreciated.

Hi everyone! Got married in October, 2014 (within 90 days of K1 visa being issued), I-94 expired in November 27, 2014. We have not filed AOS yet because we had to save up for the fees K1 + K2. We are ready to file now and just wanted to know if there will be issues because my wife and step child have been out of status for almost 4 months now.

Hi everyone,


New on this forum and looking forward to reading through all the awesome threads.


French citizen, but Canadian permanent resident. My wife and I have our interview date scheduled in Montreal at the end of the month.

It was a long immigration journey that I'm excited to end (hopefully) soon.

arrowExpired i-94 not applied AOS yet, SSN denied, expired Passport what to do

I know somebody who got here in US through K1 visa, got married within 90 days.  Her I-94 expired 2 months ago and have never filed AOS.  She applied for SSN but got denied on grounds that her visa was expired and she has no legal status to be given SSN.  Her Passport will expire in 2 months too.  with her 12 weeks on the way, can't get insurance and bills starting to file up.  I don't know if they have idea how important it is to apply for AOS before her I-94 expires, but they let their K1 petition approval expired too in the first place.  What are the best option they got?  Her days of being out of status is counting, if she reach the 180 days mark, will this be a ground for removal fi they still won't apply for GC?  I'd like to hear your thoughts so I can share.
