arrowAnyone else's EAD/AP delayed?

Several of us in the AOS from Work, Student, Tourist sub-forum are experiencing delays in receiving our EAD/AP cards. Wanted to see if anyone else is in a similar situation? We're at the 70 day mark since filing--I know that's still technically within the 90 day "acceptable" window, but we were expecting for approval/card production to be completed this week.

arrowOpinions invited please - Doubts on the I-751 packet sent

Hi Everyone,


Yesterday my wife when sending our joint I-751 packet - forgot to send the pictures we've taken in the last two years.  Once she realized that she quickly sent in the pictures separately in another mail today. Since then my mind is flooded with  questions and may be I am overthinking the situation.


  • The second time my wife sent in the pictures separately - the cover letter specifically mentioned that this is in addition to the original packet sent yesterday for XYZ alien number.
  • I am now worried if Immigration is going to include the pictures with the first packet and treat is as one or not. Is there a possibility that we may have unnecessarily complicated the situation by sending in the pictures in a second separate mail?
  • Should I call the Immigration/DHS folks to request them to ensure that the pictures are also considered as evidence with the first packet sent?


Please advise.

arrowK1 Sponsorship and co-sponsorship questions.

Good evening all,


My partner and I have just received our NOA2 approval letter.


We are both currently living in New Zealand, and have been here for the past 3 years.


My partner is a US citizen, and is not sure if her New Zealand income counts on the I-134. Her father has agreed to co-sponsor me, they live in the US.


Does she fill out the I-134 form as well with her New Zealand wages? (She has paid US taxes on all New Zealand income)


Or does she fill it out, but declare no US income?


Any information is really appreciated, as it is difficult to find information for when we are both living outside the US.


Also, are these forms sent away? Or do I hold onto them to take to my interview?


Based on my understanding the I-134 is only for the k1 period, and once we are in the US and my partner regains employment she will be able to sponsor my I-864 fully.


Thank you for your time and information in advance.

Hey All,

New to the forums of VJ, but found the site more than a year ago when my fiancé and I started to think about moving to US vs NZ.

I finally decided to join the community when I really needed some advice and support. We filed in August but reading here re: timelines we've gone wrong somewhere sooo I have some investigating to do >.< . Trust me for letting my scatterbrained darling for sending of the file lol

Looking forward to getting informed and talking to people going through the same things :)

arrowUSPS Mail Hold Service

We recently filed for my husband's AOS from an F-1 student visa in October. We have not received any RFEs and our case is ready to be scheduled for an interview. We will be traveling for a little over a month during the holidays and I want to place our mail on hold. There's a chance we'll receive his EAD/AP just prior to our departure (all travel is domestic so no worries there). I've read that USCIS does not allow their documents to get forwarded. 1. Is this true? 2. Do USCIS documents get held like any other mail or would they get returned?


I'm going to try and delay the mail hold to begin about a week after we depart because we live in an apartment and our mailbox is locked so I know it's secure. I'm just concerned that if USCIS sends any mail correspondence like for interview scheduling, etc. that the mail hold might interfere. Although, I believe our attorney receives copies of the same documents we receive.
