Thanks everyone! 

 

Its been such a long, long wait - since the first time I ever laid eyes on him in a photograph 24 years ago and thought "I'd like to get to know that guy better!" - To meeting him in person 13 years later and striking up a conversation because I still wanted to get to know him! From developing a crush but being too shy and waiting 10 years to do anything about it - from finally putting on my "big girl panties" and telling him I've fancied him since I was a kid - from being in a nearly skype-only relationship for two years - now he's finally coming home to be with me!

 

It feels so bizarre! When I was a kid, his sister sent me a photograph of herself and him sitting together at the kitchen table, and I used to stare at it and think "oooh he's so cute! Hee hee! If we ever married she would be my sister!" I can't believe it's actually, actually, actually happening! Somebody pinch me!

Such a great story! You deserve all happiness in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Here, married from yesterday but nothing about being happy

How many people have started their AoS?  

 

We're working on it now and hope to have it sent off by the end of this month. The guide from JV doesn't say to include proof of your relationship for this part.  Do we only need it for the interview? I'd love to front load this position like we did for the K-1.

We just included a certified copy of the marriage certificate, that's all they need. You might be thinking of "removal of conditions" which is in 2 years! AoS is just to get the 2-year conditional green card and Employment Authorization.

I am sending it to the end of the month too. Sometimes K1 visa don't have the interview for AOS, specially if they had already an extensive interview in a difficult country, but the interview it's OK too. I will add a joint account and maybe some bill, pictures together, anything I can joint. The most important is the Affidavit I guess. Also don't forget to add the Employment Authorization and Advance Parole applications, if they go with AOS, no additional pay

Tasha,

After we got married, I took my copy to the office downtown. They gave us the certified copy right then. It took maybe 15 minutes and cost $10 per certified copy. If you have already given the original copy to someone, then you will just have to wait. Usually, they finish the processing within 10 days. You can then go to the marriage license office and ask for a certified copy. Sometimes, you can even do it online.

 

We got married on January 8th. I can't believe we've been married for a week already! I will be taking our AOS packet to the mail today (his status expires January 25th), and I feel so relieved to have put together yet another packet of information for the government.

Depends on your state i guess, our judge said that too, but the county clerk said he was wrong. CA can only get certified copies of our certificate from the county clerk directly in the office, and only in the county where the cert was issued. The original is sent to Sacramento and we never see it.  Luckily we didn't have to wait for them to process anything, we just went in and they gave them to us in like 10 mins

Anyone have to go through extra security checks and get their approval yet?   We were just informed that we have a processing hold due to waiting on security checks to return.  I have no idea when they  started the check, and they have no idea when they will get it back... I've heard they can drag on for quite some time... So, yeah, I'm hoping someone has gone through this and recently gotten word. Thanks.

Gaharia, Oh my goodness. I'm sorry you have to wait indefinitely.. i know how upsetting that can be!!!!!! I hope they get it quickly. If you search the VJ boards you might find more info, but also sometimes it can make you worry for no reason. I hope you get more info quickly!! If it helps, we were told our "administrative processing" could take months.. but it was much shorter.. so I hope yours is same.

Gaharia,

I wouldn't worry about it. They have to do security checks on everyone who comes in. Most of us probably just don't know about it They don't want to give you a guaranteed time, say in two weeks, when they will have their results, because they know then that you will begin contacting them again :) We are a persistent group. So just hang in there and wait it out.

Hi everyone,

 

I see many/most people in this thread have had a fortunate outcome with their visa process.

 

I filed in July, but rescheduled my interview and it is coming up soon. My fiance and I have everything ready to go pretty much and almost all of the I-134 filled out. However, I was confused about one part. I had posted my own thread and one person responded and tried to help but didn't seem entirely sure themselves as they said the form they used in the past was different than the most up to date one. So, I thought I'd come here to see if anyone can assist.

 

On page 4 of the 1-134, for question 26, it says: "I have submitted a visa petition(s) to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services on behalf of the following persons. (If none, write "None" in the space for name below.) "

 

Did you guys put in the information for your foreign national fiance? Or is this asking if you've ever submitted a petition for anyone other than the current foreign national you're petitioning? My fiance (the USC) has never petitioned anyone prior to me. So, I was a bit confused if she puts me information in there or not.

 

Thanks for any help!

Hey Stagnant Sloth, 

I wish you the best going forward. I put my fiancée's name on this line. I think there was even another line asking if I had filed an affidavit of support for anyone and I had to put my brother's friend's name who had asked me to sponsor him while in the USA as he tried to adjust his status to that of a permanent resident. So yes, even though your fiancé has never submitted a petition for anyone, she is submitting one for you. So she should go ahead and put your name there. It will ask for the relationship with the person and, of course, she will write fiancé. Not sure about others, but I did put my fiancée' name on that line. I know they don't look at these forms sometimes and I even read in another forum (where there were lots of philipinpos) that they didn't even ask for the form from people coming from the Philippines. Another affidavit of support (I-864) will be filed here when you finally apply to adjust status in the USA anyways. So I guess they are treating the I-134 as irrelevant even though it's a must have at the embassy interview. Once again, good luck.
