I-693 question

Hi all,

We applied for AOS in August and did not include a signed Form I-693 with the application and intended to have it for the interview. I have received a notice about the missing form so now I am thinking about the medical check. Should I make an appointment now or should I wait for an interview notice first? Thanks!

So my visa interview is on September 26th. My fiance, who is also my beneficiary, is moving to a new address on September 20th. I know that USCIS says to notify if there is any address change while a petition is pending, but since we're at the interview stage I don't know if that's the course of action we need to take. Does she have to contact USCIS regardless? Do I need to do out another DS-160 form with the new address? Any info or help you can give me would be a huge help.

I-131 (Advanced Parole) Progess Time
1:12 pm

Hello all,

I am an American citizen and my husband is from Ireland and an applicant for an I-485. We are ready to go in for an interview but have also applied for travel authorization (I-131 Advanced Parole). We've been waiting for 112 days now for the I131 to be accepted and we are supposed to fly out this week to Ireland so he can visit his family. Our lawyer told us that we would safe to fly out because it only takes 90 days to receive the approval. However, we've been waiting pst that and it is still pending.

On this qebsite, under the processing times tab, it says they're working on forms from may 20th. How is this possible? May 20th was a Saturday and the government isn't open on Saturdays, meaning it's inpossible to have a Saturday as a date submitted. My husbands date submitted is May 22nd, which would be the Monday (the day forms CAN be submitted) so logically, that SHOULD be the date that they're working on. Is this website's processing times tab accurate?

please advise, as we already have our flights booked but cannot go without this authorization. What can we do/what's the likelihood of getting the approval in the next few days?

I just received the k packet visa this morning from the embassy in Ireland and while I was looking through the requirements I saw that the birth certificate required both parents to be on it with the word "both" in bold print, I was wondering if anyone else who came from a single parent household and only has one parent on their birth cert has had this problem and how they dealt with it ?

Yesterday I received my letter of notice of interview - which is on October 2nd.

Along with the letter was a white sheet with

"Notice to applicant: If you have ever been arrested or detained for any reason you must bring the following to your interview"

*An original or court certified copy of the complete arrest record and/ OR disposition file for each incident. (Eg. Dismissal order, conviction record or acquittal order)

I sent my lawyer a court certified copy of the only conviction I have, a drink driving charge from 2010 ( 250 FINE and mandatory 2 year driving ban) is this what they are looking for??

Any help or advice greatly appreciated, my lawyer has decided to be unhelpful ever since they got paid.
