G-325A form expiration

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello lovelies

Me and the hubby finally have the money to file my AOS after two months of being married. But as I'm getting all all my forms together, I've realised the form is expired, and this is straight from the USCIS website so they haven't updated it, so am I allowed to use it?

The same goes for any other forms I come across which are out of date?

Thanks in advanced for your help!

It's not expired. That is the OMB date when it is due a review...Paperwork Reduction Act. If it is on USCIS, it is current.

A thousand lives if I could give,
I would spend it all again with you,

Only with me you are strong,
Not even the gods above can break,

I sure hope so! I'm very lucky to have an amazing Mother in Law who speaks legalese so that's so much of a plus!

Oh my that's so helpful! You're a supernova now haha!

I do have another question now, I had my medical in London in October 2014 so I do not need to fill out a I-693 because I'm within the year, yes?

You don't need a medical exam. If all your shots were done at Knightsbridge (or got waivers like "insufficient time interval") then you shouldn't need the immunization part of the I-693 done either. If you skipped shots intending to do them later at your GP or in the US, then a civil surgeon will have to sign off on the new shots plus any you got recorded at Knightsbridge. Read the I-693 instructions and they explain K1 exceptions.

If your AOS takes forever, which is happening, then you could be asked to have another full medical, shots, whatever...depending on your interviewer. But for now if you had all your shot signed off at Knightsbridge, then you shouldn't need a civil surgeon. Were you missing any shots?

I was all up to date when I went to Knightsbridge apart from Flu which I had done at Knightsbridge for easiness. I have the documents and form they gave me for proof of all vaccinations I've had throughout life. I'm all up to date now so I shouldn't have to do anything with that form? Do I need to send a copy of the vaccinations with the AOS packet or do I wait for the interview on that? You're amazing help, I can't express how much I appreciate this!

See my list. The bold part is you.

Form I-693 with the immunization section filled out by a US Civil Surgeon, signed and sealed by him. Read the instructions for the form. OR photocopy of DS-3025 from UK medical if all shots were completed and recorded by Knightsbridge. One or the other, not both."

DS-3025 is the immunization form Knightsbridge gave you. Looks like this http://photos.state.gov/libraries/thailand/591452/iv/ds3025.pdf

Send a photocopy. Save yours. The original is actually in your medical results you turned in at POE.

For the rest of it, read the instructions for each form carefully for all the details. Also look at the example forms VJ provides for help. Found in the blue menu bar--"Example Forms".

Right, thank you so much for clarifying it all for me. I have one of those stupid brains that even though I read it 25 times, I overthink and can't quite process what it all actually says.

I really appreciate the help :)

Just go down the list and take it one form at a time. Especially pay attention to the I864 affidavit of support. There are 13 pages of instruction and they really do tell you what is required if you will read it. Your awesome mother in law will be good at reading all that. My method is print it out and highlight what you find as important. Then read it all again. I seriously read every word at least three times. Never, ever got an RFE by doing it that way.

When the whole application packet is all done and signed and in order, put it page by page on a copier and make an exact copy, even the check. Then when you start reading about RFEs and overthinking and second guessing...you have a duplicate of what you sent to look at. You don't have to guess what you sent or didn't. It helps.
