Does my AOS have to be typed?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I filled it all out by hand, with a black pen.

Is this okay, or do I need to type it up?

It would be best to type it in case there are letters in your handwriting that are unclear. They might scan pages that could more than likely obscure some of the ink. I suggest typing the application to avoid any errors. Once it's with USCIS it will be difficult to correct issues.


05-25-2017: Sent I-751 Lifting Conditions package (5 Pounds!) to VSC
06-02-2017: Check cashed

06-05-2017: Received NOA/Extension letter dated 05-30

06-07-2018: Green card produced (ROC Approved)

If you've printed neatly, don't worry about it.

If you decide to retype it, keep your handwritten version as a duplicate for reference.

I handwrote two copies of everything. lol

I am going to type it up, because my handwriting isn't the neatest.
