im so nervous i really need to stop looking for aos stories. I Think i am driving myself insane i am worried when i sent off my aos i only sent as evidence like 15 pictures of us some which were ok i guess like 3 advocates from friends and family , and lastly my husbands contract which shows i am under his name and plan and also he pays for my phone along with his but i saw people getting denied on their aos before they even received an interview or a couple of days before they go for it. I keep thinking this is going to happen to me now, due to the crappy evidence i sent off with my I-485 form anyone have experience with VWP AOS and sending bad evidence off with theirs? Or being denied before the interview.

Is that all the evidence you have, or just all the evidence you sent in? I don't think you'll get denied before an interview, if they find your evidence insufficient, they will most likely just send you an RFE for more. If you have more evidence, you will definitely want to bring it with you to the interview, even if you don't get an RFE.

I forget how you came (or if you are even IN the US, but I assume so). Do you guy live together? Have joint bank accounts? Utility bills/lease with both your names? These are all things that will help.

You will definitely get an interview, and maybe an RFE but your evidence does seem a little weak. The most important is to show commingling of your finances together such as joint bank accounts, joint credit card accounts, joint tax returns, leases, insurance policies with both of your names on it. Drivers licenses and car registrations from both of you with the same address on it, more pictures, letters when you were courting, e-mails, phone records, letters addressed to both of you at your home address.

Don't be too hard on yourself it's not that bad as you think. It's an interview not an interrogation. Most even take a surprising short turn in about 10 mins. You're not the first to adjust from VWP here and many have been approved. Initial evidences are gonna be weak since you're adjusting from VWP unlike someone with an F1 or work visa who might have a social security card prior to unlock much better evidences initially. That's why by the time you get your EAD you should add more evidences to take along on your actual interview. If your marriage is legit AND you guys know details about your relationship progression you'll be fine. Legit couples sometimes run into the danger zone but when they're careless and seem to forget minor details which couples are supposed to know like important dates in your relationship for example. Good luck!

I hear ya. Field officers are also aware that evidences can be lacking in such a situation though. You can always clarify if you happen to fall in such a situation where interview came pretty fast just around time you got your EAD. Some interviews have been known to arrive before EAD issuances. In such a situation emphasis will be laid on the knowledge of your relationship that's why I stress it's important you guys know important details about each other. Good luck!

Yes i feel good about details like i am pretty sure my husband can answer even questions about my childhood and visa versa. Just Hope When It Comes It Turns out all good a ban for 3 years would just be horrible i mean my husbands on about not letting me go home if that happens but u know. If i did get denied say, what happens would would i try to get back to my husband with a three year ban is there any way to appeal or file for something else? because i filed after my VWP expired so i heard i cant do the 9th circuit thing and i just have to go home end of.

Worse case scenario if you get denied since you entered on a VWP you won't have certain rights to appeal like someone who entered with a visa. However your chances of denial are very slim so that should be the least of your worries especially if you're in a bona fide relationship. Previous immigration red flag histories, fraud and criminal convictions are normally the reasons why a case can be denied. It's highly unlikely it will be outright denied if you 2 show you're a genuine couple even if you don't have the best of evidence stacks. What normally happens in cases like that that is you will not get approved same day and your case might be held for further review. Mind you reviews happen lots of times even to people with solid evidence. Many have been known to be approved a few days after, weeks or even several weeks post interview. You can also be requested to appear for another interview months after or even send in RFE's post interview. Good thing is by then you'll still have a chance to stack up lots of other evidence. They can even pay a surprise visit at you home as well at night or something to check if you guys are really a couple. Like I said before just know your relationship details and information you put on those forms. Take as much evidence you can and you should be good. Buy me a drink when you get you get your green card as well..Lol. You'll be fine don't worry..)

I'm... not sure they even do that. Do they? Just "randomly come by for a visit"? LOL, I'd likely be at work, otherwise out or... in the shower :P What if I'm in the shower???!!!
