You have to get married within 90 days

there is no time limit for when you file AOS by though!!!

The previous poster is wrong

all you need to file after the marriage is the certified copy of the marriage

I agree this is not correct.

You have to get married within 90 days.

I filed mine about 5 weeks after we got married (had to get marrige certificate and such).

Was no problem at all and I just got approved today.

It is however best to apply as soon as possible,or else you will be out of status like I was,was just a pain in the butt cos I was not allowed to work and that.

That's incorrect.

However, some say as soon as you get married you are 'technically' out of status and others say when your I-94 expires is when you are out of status.

You'll need to file more than just a marriage certificate!!!

See the guide for AOS and download the relevant forms from the USCIS website.

You should ideally file for AOS before the expiry date on your I94 but people have filed after that date with no problems.

Having your paperwork filed promptly will keep you within "official" status and will mean that, once you have Advance Parole and Employment Authorisation documentation you can travel outside the US and be legally able to work sooner.

I would do it sooner rather than later.

Here are links to USCIS website where you can download the forms:

http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/men...00045f3d6a1RCRD (I-485) AOS form

http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/men...00045f3d6a1RCRD (G325A Biographic Information)

http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/men...00045f3d6a1RCRD (I864 Affidavit of support)

http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/men...00045f3d6a1RCRD (I-131) Application for Travel document

http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/men...00045f3d6a1RCRD (I765 Employment Authorisation Application)

You can submit AOS, EAD and AP all together - total fee $1,010 (including biometrics fee)

PS: Just noticed you are still waiting for your interview - good luck!

I meant that the only thing that you need from the "marriage" to file is the Certificate!

It's obvious that you need more than just the piece of paper to file!

What? You mean you can't just mail a marriage certificate in to USCIS and be done with it? Surely there aren't any more fees or interviews. Perish the thought. :lol:

You can file as soon as you have a certified copy of the marriage certificate in hand, or you can wait until you are otherwise ready. Most folks want to get on with it as soon as it is practical for them to do so.
