Hey guys.

My interview is going to happen on feb 8.
I'm married at almost 4 years, and bcause my husband wasnt a citizen yet, we waited until last year to apply for my AOS.
So, by a friend who works as a lawyer assistant said that is 99% chance that im beeing approved because of how long i'm married already...

But anyways lol

I was wondering, if, i DO get approved (with GODs helps, i will), how long should i be getting my card? I see a lot timelines here is abt 10..12 days after the interview.
Can i really count that is going to be this short?
IF i buy a ticket for 20 days later and the card does not get to me in time, can i go to a imigration office to ask for a stamp?

My friend said, that this is not possible!! But i dont want to believe it hahaha

by the way, my office is in Boston.

thanks VJ friends!!

10 days is typical after official approval, but some IOs do not approve on the spot.

You can make an Infopass and ask for a stamp and if you are officially approved and have travel plans you have a good chance of getting it but it isn't guaranteed.

Thread has been moved from AOS from a family visa to AOS from a Work, Student & Tourist visa as OP states she is filing to adjust from 'other visa' status instead of as a spouse or a fiancee
