arrowAOS interview passport advice

Hi everyone, 


I posted a couple of days ago regarding my stolen passport, however, yesterday I realized that the thieves have also taken my Irish DL which means the only proof of identity I have is a US Military dependent ID. I filed for AOS 10 days ago so I have photocopies of my passport bio page, K-1 and stamp.  


I know a Government ID will suffice for biometrics, however, I'm quite worried about the AoS interview. 


I know many of you will think I'm getting ahead of myself but the Embassy has told me it can take up to and over 10 weeks for a new passport to be issued. 


I rang the USCIS helpline today and I was informed that a Government issued ID is all I will need for the AoS interview so my military ID would be fine should my passport not arrive. However, I was under the impression that a GC was stamped into a passport so I'm very confused. 


I also have a police report. 


Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

arrowJuvenile Conviction in County of Birth?

I'm reading up on the N-400 and collecting documents, dates, etc in order to complete the paperwork however I've a question. I'm sure it's came up before but haven't found anything similar by using the search function. I've a conviction from 1994 (i was 14 at the time) which I declared on my I-129F application and presented the paperwork at the interview at the US Embassy. Filling out the N-400 it asks the question if you've ever been arrested. I'm assuming this means while in the US as a resident? If so that makes things easy.. the answer is no. If not I have a lot of phone calls to make back home in order to get that paperwork.

Hi everybody.


My name is Ciaran and I just came across this forum today. So far it seems very helpful. All of your stories and questions stand out to me as I am  from Dublin and going through the same process of the K1.

Anyway I met my girlfriend 2 years ago while living in Spain, I was working and she was studying. As she had to go back to ASU I decided  I would get a J graduate visa to be with her. I spent the past year in Phoenix and subsequently had to come home but we have been over and back to each other ever since. We are due to spend the summer in Spain starting in 2 weeks. 

Over the course of our relationship we had often talked about getting married and have happily decided to do so under mutual consent, although there was still a proposal and a ring involved. 

Over the  past month we gathered all of the information we knew of such as the 129f form, photos, passport copies, birth certs and everything and filed stage one of the process. I believe we sent it to a place in Texas. 

So I am hoping to get a bit of an insight into whats next. I presume they will send my fiancee a letter saying that they have received it and then the approval process begins with the NVC who then contact Dublin. Then I will file my ds160 and take required documents to my interviews. When exactly do we have our interview as a couple seeing as she is currently in the USA?


I would much appreciate if anyone could give me a bit of insight into everything.


Thanks a lot,

arrowPassport stolen during AOS process

Hi all,


I came to the US on a K-1 visa earlier this year and applied for AOS a couple of weeks ago. Last night my bag was stolen - including my passport - and I am currently in a state of panic. 


I filed a police report etc. and will be applying for a new passport through the embassy, however, what do I do now that I don't physically have the K-1 visa anymore?


Am I right in saying that the K-1 Visa becomes "useless" (for want of a better word) once you marry? Does this mean they won't need to see it again?


Obviously I sent copies of the visa and the passport as part of my AOS package, I'm wondering when I will need the passport again?

arrowK1 visa interview in London

Hi folks,


I have my K1 interview coming up at the embassy in London next month. I have two questions;



1. I was previously in the US a few years ago on a J1 visa, would they be likely to ask about that? E.g. dates, what I did etc? - Just want to know so I can prepare.


2. How much proof of relationship do I need to bring to my interview? - I've heard that some embassies such as London don't even ask for proof of relationship at the interview stage.
