Hello,

My fiancee arrived in the US in Feb 1. We married April 19, 2008. The reason I waited was because I wanted the marriage to be 2 years from the day we met. (April 22, 2006). 22 was on Tuesday and I had to work, so we made it for SATURDAY. Will the fact that I waited so long be bad? Her visa expires May 2nd-the marriage is witin 90days. My lawyer is filling out the info. Do the papers have to be in the USCIS office before 90 days(I hope not). The money orders that are required are: $930 - Green card application, $80 petition and $355 fingerprints. Is that correct? Are there any sample interview questions?

As long as you married within the 90 days of her arriving in the US, there is no time limit as to when you file for your AOS. The total cost of AOS is $1010. That covers the AOS, biometrics, AP(Advanced Parole) and EAD(Employment Authorization Document). You don't really need a laywer to file your AOS papers. Many people did this themselves and saved a bunch of money.

applicatio fee $930

biometrics fee $80

No additional petition needed when adjusting from K-1 status if the marriage occured within the 90 days

You probably have a 50/50 chance of not being interviewed so don't worry about it until you know for sure
