SO many questions

Hello all

 

I am sorry if the below questions are found in other places here I cant figure out how the search function works!


Anyway. My fiance is here (yay!) and we were married two weeks ago (yay again!).  Here are my questions:

 

His visa stamp says it expires April 18, 2017. But we should be okay as long as we've filed the AOS before then, right? 

 

He had his medical done in the UK, as well as his completed vaccinations. He did not, however, get the vaccinations done at the same time as his medical. He went to a local travel clinic to get them done rather than make a third trip to London. My question is, how will this affect our paperwork? He has all of the vaccinations and has documentation, but I don't know how or if that will affect us.

 

Thank you so much for your help!

You had to get married within the 90 days of his entry. If you did that, you're good. The sooner you guys file for aos, the better. If it's filed before the 90 days are up, even better, so he will not accrue any overstay (that would be forgiven since he's married to a us citizen anyway).

 

as for vaccines, take a look on the ds3025 he received back from his medical, if it's marked complete, good, he will need to send a copy of that with the aos papers. If it's not marked complete, he'll have to go to an uscis approved civil surgeon to have his vaccinations transcribed to the i693.

Did your husband receive his vaccinations BEFORE Knightsbridge, or AFTER Knightsbridge?

 

If before, and they are marked on your DS3025 as completed, send a photocopy of that document in with your AOS application. This does not guarantee that you will not receive an RFE, asking for a new transcription. It should in theory, and many have been successful - but it does rely on factors out of your control: such as knowledge of the officer reviewing your case, the USCIS not losing the document, or the officer actually bothering to look into your medical. Be aware that it can happen.

 

If after, then you will need to go to a civil surgeon in your area that will do a vaccination transcription (only) onto form I-693 to be recertified. The semi completed form will be placed into a sealed envelope and you can send that in with your AOS. Refer to the I-693 instructions on how to complete the form for K1 adjusting applicants.

AH. He got them done after Knightsbridge. I'll start looking for our local civil surgeon! Thank you so much!

Dr. Polly Steinberg in the Bethesda/DC area will do them, if you can't find anyone else closer/more affordable. Does he have any evidence of receiving the vaccinations/receipts and such? The civil surgeon will need that if possible.

We found plenty in our area, thank you! And yes, we do have his records. They sent his records along with the additional vaccinations he needed, so we just need those transcribed onto the form.
