I-130 concurrently with the I-465

Hello All,

All is well in my life. Girlfriend arrived from Russia on Tourist Visa March 28, and after having so much fun together, decided to make it a permanent arrangement and had a civil marriage on May 5, 2017. We then planned and executed a Church wedding on June 24th, followed by a honeymoon to Hawaii that we just returned from.

Now for the paperwork.

As far as I understand it, I need to do a I-130 concurrently with the I-465. In other words, follow the instructions here: http://www.visajourney.com/content/i130guide2 Is that correct?

I have most of the paperwork done for this. The only question I have at this time is how long does it take them to cash the check once I send it in? I was not expecting a price tag of almost $2,000 for the two forms : 1225 + 535. I am going to have to do some saving to pay for that.

I just want to make sure I am on the right track here.

Does anyone have experience with using social security quarters and/or know the best way to provide proof? So far we have decided to print out the 10 years worth of W2s to as proof. Our interview is next week, I'd appreciate any input! Thank you :)

Expediting I-131/Advance Parole (merged)

Wondering if anyone tried/succeeded in expediting I-131/AP? Last week we sent our concurrent filing papers for AOS to Chicago lockbox.

A beneficiary needs to visit her home country late August to attend one-year memorial services for her deceased mother. She can still use her non-refundable roundtrip ticket's remaining legs to fly back to that country as we did not plan to adjust status. USCIS policy lists several criteria for expedited processing of I-131, including financial loss, emergency situations, humanitarian reasons. We think that all these three criteria apply to our situation (well, may be emergency situation is to a lesser extent than other two). So we are considering expediting her I-131 only, without any requests regarding I-765. We would be happy if it results in expedited combo card though... But we would be also fine with getting two separate cards too, AP sooner, and EAD later.

Would appreciate any thoughts and experiences shared by fellow VJ members.
