Hello, my wife and I have just gotten married after she arrived here on a K-1 Visa. We are gathering the paperwork to file for the AOS, but we cannot find our NOA2. To be honest, I'm not really sure if I ever got it. I remember receiving the email, but we can't find the actual paper anywhere.

I know that to get a duplicate we need to file an I-824, but the processing time on that is 6 months, not to mention that it also costs $340. Her visa will expire in about a week. Can I still file the AOS without this form? The last thing I want is for her to enter some sort of illegal status here in the states.

I plan on calling the USCIS an claiming I never got it, maybe they'll send another. Although I doubt it will do any good being that so much time has past since it was supposed to have been sent. I also plan on calling the consulate in Romania to ask if they have a copy on file somewhere, they were very nice while were there and my be reasonable enough to fax us a copy.

But really, those are just desperate attempts to avoid the inevitability that we are going to have to pay $340 and then sit and wait for it to come. Is it still possible for us to file our AOS along with the employment authorization and application for travel? If they will at least give her the required paperwork to work and travel, I don't mind how long the rest of this takes.

There are a lot of questions there, I know. It's a very stressful situation. We appreciate any help anyone can give.

Thank you.

How about printing the CRIS email and sending that instead, along with a note saying that you never received the actual NOA2....

Also, didn't you have to show the NOA2 at your k-1 interview? I know that my wife did, but maybe some embassies are different.

@J&M: No, we didn't have to show the NOA2 at that interview, they never asked.

We scheduled and infopass appointment so that we could go in and ask questions. They told us that a print out of our case status from uscis.gov should be fine, because it contained the receipt number and the approval date, but that it would be up to the agent who handles our case. We're going to submit it that way and see what happens.
