F-1 AOS via marriage to USC March 2015 filer

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am fairly new here and I never post as I am terrified by rude posters, however I am genuinely curious about AOS timelines so it would be great knowing that there are people going through the same processes.
If you went through a similar process, which is adjusting from an F1 visa, do leave a comment of your timeline and where your field office is.

A little about my visa timeline

Aug 2012- Entered the USA with F1 visa to attend school
Dec 2014- Married my husband
Jan 2015- Moved across country to be with him for his job (Not attending school currently)
March 10, 2015- Sent in AOS package which includes (I-130, I-485. I-864, I-693, I-765)
March 16, 2015- Package received at Chicago Lockbox
March 20, 2015- NOA1
April 15, 2015- Biometrics was completed at Cincinnati OH ASC.
May 26, 2015- I-765 was accepted and my EAD is in production

How long did it take you to get your greencard?

Also, should this topic have already been in discussion, admins feel free to merge/delete. Thank you.

Hello

Did you get an interview letter or a interview waiver letter. If you got a waiver letter then it could be a up to a year from what I have seen. Your EAD is a good sign watch for those letters. If you get an interview letter and your interview goes well the about 2 weeks. From approval for your card. It all depends on what path your paper works takes. See our time line from the k1perspective.

Good luck

Hello G Walters

Thank you for your prompt response. I asked a question on here a couple of months back and you were the only one that replied and I never formally thanked you because of how hectic it was for me to gather all the paperwork and whatnot.
So thank you so much, I appreciate your input here, and I am sure there are many others who do as well.
Your K1 AOS went really quick! I would say you're lucky, but I am sure you did everything accordingly and they had no reason to deny you. So kudos!

So far I have seen a bunch of AOS from K1 March filers having their interview dates set, and I can't help but wonder if anything went wrong with my package.
And no, I haven't gotten any updates on my I-130 or my I-485 and it's causing me to be slightly anxious..

You are probably better of than adjusting from a K, most likely you will be interviewd and amusingly that is quicker.

Obviously varies by office if I was to pluck a number I would say 6 months. My GC arrived within the week YMMV

Just hit the report button below to report rude posters.

Ooohhh I can reply like this, awesome.

Well, I would love to be interviewed ASAP and get this over with, but then I guess that's everybody.

I sent everything to the Chicago Lockbox, but then it ended up at the National Benefits Center (Receipts start with MSCxxxxxx)

And for some reason, I can't seem to find timelines for AOS from F1 (Unless I really am that blunt to not notice it while scrolling through the webpage)

But then for March 2015 AOS filers, some already have interviews scheduled in June! So that's probably the earliest I have seen among the K1 visas.

So yeah, getting an interview notice soon would be great.

With USCIS current backlog you should expect an interview on average after 6 months of filing. If you're lucky to fall in a reasonable field office with slightly better pace maybe after 4 months. I also adjusted from F1 and my timeline is below. Yes you should expect to ha e an interview.

Oh my! They take a while don't they?

Thank you for sharing! At least now I know how long it'll take approximately for my case to be reviewed and whatnot.

Hi

I am adjusting from F1 jus like you. I dun think it is necessary for u to wait for that long. I guess it really depends on ur local office. in Los Angeles, all the cases seem to be processed really fast. My interview got scheduled in two months after they received my application.

I think you can check your local office processing time frame on USCIS web, tho it might not be accurate cos it says in LA, it takes 5 months.. But truth is around 3 months. LOL

Good luck on ur journey!

Hi

Thanks for posting on this thread.

I just saw your timeline and I am nothing but jealous right now!

We basically sent our packages at the same time! They received my package on the 16th of March. I'm happy for you though, with no RFEs and with everything so smooth sailing, I'm sure you'll be fine. Good luck on your interview!
