travel when GC is not even filed

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am here on a K1 originally and we got married in November.

Still I havent filed the AOS (!) because of a series of bad luck that led to money probs.

I feel very uncomfortable, almost like an illegal, by now.

My husband is a musician, he plays in Chicago soon and I could come with them.

Will I have problems cause of my papers on the airport?

Should I bring the marriage certificate with me?

Does anyone have the same difficulties?

Also:

From the uscis I heard that after 6 month it is really time to file.

What will happen?

I was on this board before and was told about the fee waiver, but it seems to be a lot of paperwork and we decided to try to pay it.

well,

thanks for Your help,

Pepi

As long as you are traveling within the US, you're okay with using your passport. The airlines are not interested in your legal status.


09-02-2005 Applications for AOS, EAD, and AP received by MSC

10-21-2005 AOS fingerprint notice for 12-08-2005

11-07-2005 AP approved

12-05-2005 Infopass appt at San Jose office for interim EAD -- Refused, because it is already approved by MSC on 11-07-2005

12-07-2005 Attempt at interim EAD at San Francisco office -- no go. Back to San Jose, where CSO (chief station officer) tells they will contact MSC via email to request permission to issue interim EAD

12-08-2005 Biometrics for AOS and EAD. Having no EAD appt letter was no problem (used EAD NOA)

12-15-2005 EAD arrived in the mail

12-24-2005 Received interview letter; interview scheduled 03-01-2006

01-28-2006 Received replacement SSN card in married name (5 wks since application)

Thanks, I feel better already

Does anyone know at what point You have to expect complications when You file Your GC so late after the wedding?

If you don't want to leave the US until after your GC has been issued, there are no complications... However, if you do want to leave the uS, don't let more than 180 pass between the date that your legal status expired and the date that the USCIS produces the Notice Date. If you do let it pass, you are subject to a 3-year ban on reentry..

On another subject... Why haven't you filed yet... getting your Immigration house in order should be your highest priority. You should be willing to beg, borrow and steal to get the funds necessary to file for AOS.
