arrowAOS delivered before i-94 expiry, but received afterwards

Hi, I sent off my AOS package (k-1 visa, married well within 90 days) and it arrived in Chicago and was signed for a few days before my i-94 expired, however I got the official "We received the package" email a couple of days after the i-94 expired.


 Is their official date of receipt the date they signed for it, or afterwards?


 I know that sending it after the 90 days is apparently not a problem if you were married within the 90, I'm just wondering what the official date they receive it would have been though.

Hi All


I understand that my question may have been answered in many discussions before. Nervousness has prompted us to get a second opinion as we are doing this by ourselves and not hiring the services of a lawyer.

My fiancee is a US citizen and we plan to file the I-129F petition next month. This is the package we have assembled and she will mail it to USCIS soon.


- G1145 E-Notification form

- $340 payment

- Cover letter describing the package.

- Form I-129F

- Explanation of how we met in person. 34-a of I-129F

- Letter of intent to marry from both (Originals)

- G-325A filled out by both and passport type photographs in a labelled bag.

- US Citizen's birth certificate

- Proof of relationship (Lots of photographs, chats and email records, International travel tickets and travel within India, hotel bookings, proof of me visiting her earlier this year and staying with her parents, bank transfers and reference letters). Is there anything else we could use?



- We do not have phone bills or any record of calling each other. She moved back to the US in January and we have been using Skype. How important are phone records? I will check to see if I can get a Skype history printed.


- I recently moved to Australia and will have to change accommodation in a few months. What is the process to notify USCIS about the change of address? Is it better to wait or do I change it closer to NOA2?


We can use all the help we can get. Thanks to all in advance and good luck to current applicants.

arrowDWAI and applying for Citizenship

Hi,  I'm looking to see if anyone can help with the following question.


I got my LPR (Green Card) in Jan of 2008 and am also married to a US citizen (since Oct 2012).  But I got a DWAI charge (not DUI) in May of 2009, with a deferred sentence.  Other than this DWAI my record is completely clean and clear.  Does anyone have information on whether this will have a negative impact on the "good moral character" of my citizenship application? Any help you can offer would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Greetings everyone, my fiance and I are new here. We just recieved our NOA1. 
Unfortunately we got Texas service center :'(


I don't understand why they don't distribute visas to service centers based on their current load. We were hoping to get California.

arrowPostal service lost EAD card. Have to reapply!

Has anyone had their approved EAD card go missing in the mail?


The tracking number for my approved EAD shows that it was 'delivered' on 12th July 2014. It wasn't. (the mailing address is correct) I have spent weeks chasing up the post office/consumer affairs who have been extremely unhelpful and sometimes downright rude. (That is another story, but how uncanny that I walk out of our apartment today only to see someone elses mail on the ground, who happens to live half a dozen apartments away, across the street?! )


After speaking with USCIS on the 15th July, I was told they would send out a new EAD, which should arrive within 30 days. I called them again today to see the progress, and was told that they don't do that and I was told the wrong information. Basically, I have to re-apply for a new EAD, which as we all know, can take up to 90 days. Plus, either we pay the fee all over again, or we can apply for a fee waiver...which takes 30-60 days!!! (I was tempted to just wait until greencard comes through..but the USCIS guy said it could take 12-18 months, despite me seeing other similar timelines being approved in around 6-7 months. Too risky to do that)


I am just wondering if someone else has had this frustrating experience? :ranting:
