Hey guys, I'm in the final stages of compiling all our documents to submit our packet tomorrow. We're applying for my husband's AOS from an F-1 visa. I see a lot of people who are adjusting from fiancee visas include photographs and such in their application to prove their relationship. However, since we're already married and including all those important documents pertaining to shared lease, joint bank accounts, credit card statements, renter's insurance, auto insurance, and health insurance policies that list both of our names...should we just wait to bring the photos, old e-mails, airline tickets of trips taken together, etc. to the actual interview?

arrowI-485 Pending, Major Delays, EAD running out. Help!

We were originally due for an answer in December last year 2014, but that came and went and nothing happened. I have been calling on a numerous occasions throughout this year, first person that talk to asaid that my 485 was being processed in ST Paul, and that they are having delays, then I called back when those delays were up, then the next person said that my 485 was being processed at at Lee's Summit MO and the processing times were around July and August nothing happened so I called back again. I called back on the 19th of Aug (just to be safe) and they set up a request form for me and told me to wait, the following week i received a letter stating that the request was made and that due to factors not related to my case they anticipate delays.. and that was it, no estimated time, nothing.. on top of that my online case status has not been updated since December.


I am feeling concerned it almost feels like my I-485 has been lost in the system, my friends who lives in the same town who applied 3 months after I did got theirs back months ago, and now my EAD card is expiring in less than 2 months.

Is anyone else experiencing the same issues?
Do I have to pay the $400 do renew my EAD card even though they admitted it was not my fault?
I am due to call back in the next two days to chase up, Is there anything I can do or request to help my situation?

Thanks in advance!

arrowTransferred........ AGAIN??

Hi Everyone,


Petition sent January 21st 2015
NOA1 received January 26th 2015
transferred to VSC August 4th 2015 - 'in order to speed up processing'


After waiting for another month and a half we have received another transfer notice that our case has been transferred to California Service Centre 'in order to speed up processing'.


I am positive in the fact our case has been touched, this means it hasn't been kicked under a desk somewhere going dusty but I don't understand why we are being transferred all over the country 'in order to speed up processing' as if we were still at TSC looking at the processing times we would have had a result already.


I last saw Daniel in December 2014 and it now looks like it will be well into 2016 before I get to see him again which is heart breaking.


Has anyone experienced this kind of run around before?

Being transferred to CSC with a January NOA1 date, would this put us at the front of the queue or will be starting the wait over again?


Any info or support would be greatly appreciated.


Tabitha :)

Hi there, my husband is in the US on an F-1 visa while he attends MIT graduate school. Our goal was to submit all of our paper work for his adjustment of status by the end of this month. Although there is no rush to get this completed other than peace of mind of knowing that we can be together past his visa expiration in 2017 and convenience with travel, legal documents, etc. However, we were just invited to attend the Rugby World Cup in London and I want to know if my husband would be able to travel abroad after we submit his Adjust of Status packet. It's not everyday your family offers you free tickets to the World Cup!!! Would he be allowed to leave the country while his AOS is pending or would it be best to wait to file until after we return from London? Thoughts?

What is the answer to;


'Your relative is in the United States and will apply for adjustment of status to that of a lawful permanent resident at the USCIS office in..'


Do they refer to the city I live in (i.e., Albuquerque, NM)..or where I will be sending my papers (i.e., the lockbox in Chicago)?


It sounds like I should say Albuquerque but i just wanted to confirm.


Many thanks in advance!!!
