Any Turkish/US couples apply for an AOS?

My husband and I met in the US while we were going to grad school in San Francisco (he was here on a student visa, I'm a USC). After graduating, he applied for and was granted OPT. We had our civil ceremony in April, and applied for his AOS on September 3rd, 2009, right before his OPT expired.

He had his biometrics apt last Friday. I'm just wondering how long it usually takes for couples in our situation to get the working permit? Anyone have first hand experience with this?

Hi, we are still waiting for our K1 visa, so can't help you with this.. but I know there are many people on here who can give you great info. Have you found the Turkish Forum yet? I see you just joined VJ, so you may not have found it yet.. took me a while.

Go to the regional discussions ( Europe and Eurasia) and there is a forum just for Turkish couples. It's pinned at the top of the page, so easy to find. There are many great people there.

Welcome!!

Hello Laure and Veli,

I visited your website, Congratulations to you both on your wedding. Your website is wonderful by the way!

Sorry I can't help with your question as we had tons of problems with the EAD process. See time line below.

July 20, 2005 Sent in AOS & EAD paperwork...Sent UPS over night

December 1, 2005. EAD received

Not many Turkish couples that I know of already are here in the states. I think your question would be better answered in the AOS forum.

I wish you all the best.

Debbie
