Thanks for the great info, I will be going to the Philippines to accompany my fiancée back to the US for our K1 visa in February and this is a great guide to follow for AOS and beyond, thank you!

My pleasure. PhilippineSagot and Greenbaum have AWESOME guides for the K1 journey from the Phils. Head on over to the Philippines subforum and find any of their post and click the link in their respective signatures if you haven't done so already and/or if you have questions. Those guys are great!

 

Edit: Go with your fiancee for her interview if you can. It is a great experience.

She already has her visa, just needs stamp from CFO...I'm bringing my mother with me to meet family before coming to US, her POE will be Seattle WA on the 23rd of February...we are planning on a wedding on April 16 2016 then we will file the AOS right away. So just saying we are looking into the AOS status soon, I think I'll let her take the reigns on this process and of course help and sign when needed.

Oh excellent! Congrats. The key to the CFO is for her to be strong and confident, which from what you have said does not sound like a problem! Best of luck to you and enjoy the party! It is great that your mom can meet her family. That was not an option for us but Joan has met my mom and of course I met my Filipino in-laws.

Adding a hint -- one that I was fortunate to learn in time -- to Steve's Step Ten/Eleven:

 

As soon as you're married, begin taking documents/evidence that firmly or remotely apply to the personal and financial blending of your lives, and throw them (or copies of them) into a box.  By the time ROC comes around, you'll have ample evidence for your I-751 package.

Good point! Thanks for the tip!

One more thing just came to mind....be sure to file your taxes as MARRIED. It is not as important whether you file individually or jointly (there are pros and cons, I guess, to both), but do file as married!
