Following K1 marriage we filed AOS on Oct 5th, but we still don't have anything from USCIS. I just spoke to USCIS tier 2 officer. He checked A#, first & last names and said they got no information about our case. Said just wait. I have enough patience but the visa is expiring in less than 2 weeks. Will USCIS cause us any problems (if we dont get anything by that time) because my wife isn't approved yet?




PS. I know it usually takes about two weeks, and some of you have waited up a month

I'm trying to find a civil surgeon that knows what I need and doesnt try to rip me off. I live in New Jersey, I so far called 13 doctors and most of them want me to do "the whole thing" as they say, which is $150 to $300. I found ONE that will charge $200 for transcribe. Still a lot more than what people say here http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/231026-civil-surgeons-who-dont-rip-you-off/. On that thread I found one in NJ, but he's too far, 2hrs driving. Few in NYC, also very far.


Is there anyone who has done AOS (I-693 )recently in NY or NJ? Could you share your experience please

Hey guys, we are preparing forms for AOS (i-131, i-485, i-765, i-864, G-325A) and I have few question. Hope you can help me.


1) The form 765 question 16 asks select the eligibility category... is it (c) (9) as stated on example forms for or something different?


Eligibility Category.  Go to the “Who May File Form I-765?” section of the Instructions.  In the space below, place the letter and number of the eligibility category you selected from the instructions.  For example, (a)(8), (c)(17)(iii), etc...



2) The form G-325A. I just opened the one we did for K-1 visa and added A#, SSN, me as her current husband. Adjusted employment history (she worked overseas before she came to US, but doesnt now, yet). Now the question is, do I chose for This form is submitted in connection with an application for: Status as Permanent Resident?


Thanks in advance

arrowRussian friend is being threatened by American Husband

We have a russian friend Kristina that arrived from Moscow about the same time as my wife Natalya.  With her husband, she has had a son, just like we have had.  Our timelines are about the same, so we began developing a friendship.


Then we have heard and seen things that are not cool:

  • He is a bit stable, probably a manic.
  • He has kicked her out of the house on more than one occasion.  He has denied her food, and monitors all of her spending.
  • He recently did not allow her to go to Moscow to attend her brother's funeral.
  • He has hidden her passport as well as her 10-month old son's passport.

So she shared some of this with my wife, and we are trying to inform her of her options.  She is a conditional green card holder, speaks pretty good English, and she wants to know her rights.


  1. Can he deport her?
  2. Can he withdraw his AOS?
  3. She has no financial resources, how does she proceed with filing a divorce (if that is what she wants to do)?
  4. Can he force her out of this house?  He claims he owned it before (paid in full) their marriage, but they have been living there for 2 years.
  5. What rights does she alimony/child support if she chooses to divorce him?

Anyway, when he is UP, he promises to change and do anything she asks.  When his is DOWN, he is emotionally tormenting her.


Any advice is appreciated.
