  1. Mine didn’t have one either. But I think it’s just the date from NOA 1 (your filed on / Accepted on date) for those who don’t have it filled out, plz correct me if I’m wrong
  2. Also they lost our marriage certificate, fortunately I brought another certified marriage certificate, and they kept it They kept an original birth certificate too I turned in 3 certified marriage certificates originally by the way - one for each - AOS / EAD and AP
  3. Also, I brought the whole document I-693 instructions, with page 7 bookmarked and the specific Part 3 A and C highlighted, and it was attached to a copy of our DS-3025 Exactly, and they still could’ve made us do it again, thanks God they did not
  4. From Page 7 of 12, from I-683 Instructions PDF from here: https://www.uscis.gov/i-693 (download the Instructions for form I-693 pdf, second download link, not the actual 693 form) This part, Page 7, item 3 - A and C, regarding our overseas exam form DS-3025 (my wife received a blanket waiver on her DS-3025 from having to do a new medical exam here with the Civil Surgeon, and so, no need to turn in form I-683): 3. What if I am a K nonimmigrant visa holder and already had a medical examination overseas? If you were admitted as a: A. K-1 ancé(e) or a K-2 child of a K-1 ancé(e); or B. K-3 spouse of a U.S. citizen or a K-4 child of a K-3 spouse of a U.S. citizen; and C. You received a medical examination prior to admission, then: (1) You are not required to have another medical examination as long as you le your Form I-485 within one year of an overseas medical examination; and (a) The panel physician did not nd a class A medical condition during your overseas examination; or (b) The panel physician did nd a class A medical condition, you received a waiver of inadmissibility, and you have complied with the terms and conditions of the waiver. (2) Even if a new medical examination is not required, you must still show proof that you complied with the vaccination requirements. If the vaccination record (DS 3025) was not properly completed and included as part of the original overseas medical examination report, you will have to have the Part 9. Vaccination Record completed by a designated civil surgeon. In this case, you must submit Parts 1., 2., 3., 4., 6., and 9. of Form I-693.
  5. @Teemo sure thing, I updated my timeline just before posting this, planned on doing the interview experience deal after work this evening
  6. Reposting what I posted in NYC filers: We had our GC interview yesterday at the Jacob Javits federal bldg in Manhattan (we live in Sunnyside, Queens). We didn’t get approval or denial, just pending result, but told we could expect approval but may have to submit a new medical exam. we had an overseas exam during the K1 process - I explained and showed USCIS documentation from the medical exam instructions pdf that - while, yes, it’s been more than a year since we filed, that the requirement was only that we file our overseas exam document within a year of the exam. The agent told us that she would have to check with her supervisor but thought that we would need a new exam. About an hour after we left, we received the status update that our new card is in production, so I’m guessing the supervisor agreed with me, and / or the agent decided to approve us.

  8. Sounds like they are just backed up big-time, hopefully you’ll be one of those who gets to skip the interview, also - as a plus and a minus — if it takes more than two years (the minus) to get it, I believe you it’s possible you might get your 10 year GC instead (the plus)
  9. We finally heard back on the 3rd that our interview will be June 6 - one year exactly from the date of our filing (PD was May 9, ead/AP/aos all filled May 3, 2017, but only ead/AP noa1 said May 3, aos said May 9 for some reason). I put in a service request for case taking longer than expected back in November 9 last year (after 6 months). It took 4 months or so to hear back, and all we got was a letter that said it’s not outside of normal processing time for where it was at. Have you tried putting in a service request? If not, I’d recommend it. It can take a year or more to hear back, just as it did with us. Hang in there, and let us know if you need any support! edit - reason I recommend it, is just to get someone to check on your case to make sure it didn’t get lost in the shuffle there, or you can call and ask to speak with a tier 2 person at the 1-800 number
  10. Thank you very much for the helpful reply @adityaag, and congrats on getting your GC!
  11. Can anyone here tell me about how long it took you to receive your green card after the interview (preferably from the NYC office and preferably K1 to AOS 2 year GC)? my wife’s interview is June 6, she’s hoping to travel home for her sisters wedding in early July through mid august. We do have EAD/AP combo card, the AP expires august 16, and her sisters wedding is aug 8, so I’d prefer her to go with the GC and not have to deal with an AP that’s about to expire within days after she returns. If needed I’ll get a new AP any thoughts suggestions are appreciated, thank you!
  12. In myuscis - nope, only on egov, and it updated to the Employment based interview. I did get text message and email updates - the email looked most correct - it said “interview and testing scheduled”, the text message just let me know to check egov
  13. Posted this in the May filers section, re-posting here for us New Yorkers: We finally got an interview date! June 6, which will be one year and 5 days since we did biometrics, and we filed May 3 last year. Our online status updates have been a bit crazy: egov - may 9/17 - Fingerprint Fee received myuscis - June 15/17 - interview ready to be scheduled egov - April 30 - Employment based interview scheduled (what?? We are family based from K1 lol — I found out it’s a common error and just waited for the letter in the mail) letter came in the the mail yesterday, correct interview scheduled for June 6. good luck and god bless everyone, hope this helps someone

  15. I’m not sure, it never said it left NBC because of the lack of status updates. After getting the interview letter in the mail though it says our interview is here in New York City
