So my fiance will be here next week (YIPPEEE).
And i had a few questions in regards to the next steps. (Yes, i did search but found conflicting info)
I know she needs to apply for a social security number but already has one from her summers working on a J1 visa, do we need to go to the SS office still, or is that fine since she has one already?
The next step would be marriage license and marriage.
Heres another part i'm confused on. we apply for the Adjustment of Status(I-485)
It says we can apply for the employment authorization(I-765) during the same time for no additional fee. is that correct and do i mail it in with the I-485 in the same envelope?
also, i saw mention of a I-131. What is the exact purpose of this form, do we need to fill it out? mentions re-entry, the only time my fiance plans to leave the US is to visit her family on maybe 1-2 week visits, but nothing immediately. Maybe next January.
And this gets mailed to Chicago correct? Thats what i found under the USCIS website for the filing location.
Also, are there any samples filled out of the I-485 and I-765?
Once everything is sent in for the AOS, is it simply a waiting game then until biometrics visit and interview?
Am i missing anything else?
Thank you very much!!! Any additional help would be wonderful.
PS: this is what i'm currently referring to.
