  1. Thanks for the reply. This is really interesting! I get what you mean, and it makes sense.
  2. Oh, I forgot something else. When we got the interview appointment letter it detailed everything we need to take, and "bring your form I-693 (unless already submitted)". If it was long expired, why didn't they ask for it in that letter?
  3. Thanks for the reply. I do understand your point. Maybe I'm just naive for thinking I can have a nice chat with them. The medical is expired now (it expired on May 2nd), but it wasn't when we filed the AoS package. As the I-693 instructions state: “3.4.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 fiancé(e) or a K-2 child of a K-1 fiancé(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 file your Form I-485 within one year of an overseas medical examination; and ... We did file within a year, despite the delays you mentioned (medical was done in May 2017, AoS filed in December 2017). I sincerely don't think they would have grounds for a denial; just basing it on an infopass to check whether they have considered or not this information written in the instructions of the same form they are requesting to be done again. We did everything as it was supposed to be done, in timely manner, and the officers here seemed to be really nice so far. When I said a nice chat, I really intended to say that. Would asking them politely to consider that information really transform this into an immigration tragedy (denial)? It's a possibility, yeah... But it could turn out well, and not only for our case, but also for other people in the same situation, by letting the officer get to know that information too. In any case, we are really considering, carefully, all the advices given here. Thanks again.
  4. Thank you for all for your replies. However, I think they're not quite relevant. First of all: medical exam date 05/02/2017. I-485 was filed on december 2017. It was within a year of the medical exam. There is no long gap there, as the I-693 instructions state: “3.4.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 fiancé(e) or a K-2 child of a K-1 fiancé(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 file your Form I-485 within one year of an overseas medical examination; and ... Everything correct here. We got married within the 90 days, and filed the I-485, one month after that. Everything correct here too. As we stated before "We are thinking about scheduling an infopass appointment, to try to have a nice chat with them (we got plenty of time, since they gave us more than two months to get the I-693 submitted to them)." Fortunately, we can get an infopass appointment here really fast, so we can give it a try. If we fail, we will do the medical within the time frame given by them. So we'll try the infopass, while we are checking the authorized doctors/clinics in our area.
  5. Hello lovely community of VJ! Here's what happened to us. We had our AoS interview last monday. Everything was OK, but the officer wasn't sure about the I-693. The officer said it had more than one year by the time of the interview (last monday, 08/06/2018). So, she told us to go home, and wait for a letter from them. She said it could be a 'nothing happened here' letter, or an 'RFE' letter. Medical exam (completed): 05/02/2017 US entry (and medical package taken): 08/16/2017 Date I-485 received by USCIS (first NOA): 12/27/2017 Today (08/09/18) we got a wonderful RFE letter. Part of the text on the RFE letter we received: "Starting June 1, 2014, USCIS changed the policy on Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record. The new policy states that all Forms I-693 are valid for only one year from the date submitted to us. The policy also states that the Form I-693 must be submitted within one year of the medical exam. The Form I-693 that you submitted does not meet both of these requirements. Please return to a Civil Surgeon to have a new medical exam." Let's review their reasons. Reason one: "The new policy states that all Forms I-693 are valid for only one year from the date submitted to us." Then my form meets this requirement. :) Reason two: "The policy also states that the Form I-693 must be submitted within one year of the medical exam." My form meets this requirement too ! :D And they concluded that: "The Form I-693 that you submitted does not meet both of these requirements." ... : / We are thinking about scheduling an infopass appointment, to try to have a nice chat with them (we got plenty of time, since they gave us more than two months to get the I-693 submitted to them). Any ideas? Similar experiences? Please enlighten us!
  6. Hi all! Just following up on yesterday's post. Today we got the 'case was approved' update on the tracker. It reads: On May 3, 2018, we approved your Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization. The secured Uscis page updated with yesterday's status: we are producing your card and will mail it to you 🎉
  7. We got the new card being produced notification today on the tracker app! Nothing changed on the Uscis account page (the one with login). Our last update was case received 131 days ago. Also noticed the update just changed for EAD and not AP. Hopefully the combo card arrives. Either way we're so exciting after such a long wait!
  8. Hi! I got the same update. Also just for AOS.AP and EAD still say 'case was received'. Was hoping it was glitch that would fix itself within minutes. I guess we'll have to wait and see?
  9. Hi sorry for the late reply. It did work out for us. USCIS did pick it up. Oddly when our check was cashed the USPS notice still said "available for pickup". Hopefully your situation is resolved by now. Good luck on your journey!
  10. Hi all! We mailed our AOS on Dec 18 and received the text/email confirmations on Dec 28.
  11. Thank you guys for all your replies. We just received the notification from USCIS: they got the case! (yeah at 12:15am!) Thanks again, and best of luck to all of you in the same process.
  12. Hi, thanks for the reply. We used a flat rate envelope. Hi, thanks for the reply. I'm asking the same to my wife. LOL (We already had issues with USPS, but with an international package, haha)
  13. Hi community, We sent our AoS package on December 18, and today we got this notice from USPS: "Delivery Attempt: Action Needed Reminder to Schedule Redelivery of your item before January 5, 2018." As our AoS case is based on a K1, we sent it to: USCIS Chicago Lockbox For U.S. Postal Service (USPS): USCIS PO Box 805887 Chicago, IL 60680-4120 We haven't found anything like this on the forum, just old threads about delayed deliveries and such. Should we worry and take action or just wait patiently till someone from USCIS picks up our package?
  14. Hi. The NOA2 date is irrelevant to port of entry. I believe the NOA2 expiration date refers to the final date by when the medical/interview should be completed. Port of entry travel shall not exceed the expiration date on k1 visa itself (once it is approved).
