5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good day,

I have done my research and we will be filing an I-130 and I-485 jointly.

Do I need to get the medical done beforehand and include this with my I-485?

Yes you need to get this done before you mail off your packet for I-130 & AOS, or you will get a RFE asking for it and that will delay your case....

Looks like you didn't do enough of your research. ;)

In the instructions on how to fill out the I-485(page 4):

7. Medical examination.

When required, submit a medical examination report onthe form you have obtained from USCIS.

A. Individuals applying for adjustment of statusthrough a USCIS service center.

1. General: If you are filing your adjustment of status application with a USCIS service center, includeyour medical examination report with the application, unless you are a refugee.

Thanks very much, my head is filled with so much visa information I don't even think I'll sleep for the next few days :)

I do actually recall seeing that information - I just didn't know if it would be requested at a later date, but thanks for clearing this up, much appreciated!
