Hi everybody! I hope someone can help me with my dilemma. We are currently in the AOS process and will be having an interview this April 27, 2010. I submitted my AOS without the I-693 medical form. I didn't receive any RFEs for it and the interview letter didn't mention to bring it with me to the interview. My question is...should I still go to a civil surgeon and do the I-693 or just take the risk and go to the interview without it? Will they look for it on the interview?

My second question is..we don't have any pictures when we got married. It was just a civil wedding at the courthouse and it was just me, my husband, the judge and the two witnesses that we don't even know (I think they were court employees). My husband was stationed in Guam so neither his or my parents could attend the wedding and none of his friends went because it was a work day and none of them could leave work. We are planning on a big wedding in my home town this year though. Will this be a big issue with the interviewer?

We also don't have any bills together because I still don't have SSN because the USCIS screwed up (we moved 3 times this past 8 months). We only have a house lease (utilities are included with the house), life insurance and health insurance under our name. Will this be enough?

I hope you can help me with my questions. Thanks in advance! =)

Congratulations on the upcoming interview! It is somewhat strange that you haven't received an RFE for the missing I-693. But like they say, an RFE can come at any stage. It seems like the IO would look for that during the interview. In my opinion, it wouldn't hurt going to a civil surgeon and getting the medical. If the IO doesn't ask for it, great. But if the IO does, then you have one ready. :thumbs:

My second question is..we don't have any pictures when we got married. It was just a civil wedding at the courthouse and it was just me, my husband, the judge and the two witnesses that we don't even know (I think they were court employees).

I don't think the lack of pictures will be a big issue during the interview. I think they are looking more into the proof of a bona fide relationship (i.e. pooling of financial resources, like joint accounts, utilities, leases). I, too, had a civil marriage with only a few guests. We didn't have so many pictures, also. BTW, love Guam! Have you been there? :ot:

We also don't have any bills together because I still don't have SSN because the USCIS screwed up (we moved 3 times this past 8 months). We only have a house lease (utilities are included with the house), life insurance and health insurance under our name. Will this be enough?

It sure sounds like it would be enough. Not having other bills can be explained by the lack of an SSN. I think you'll be fine with the house lease, life and health insurance.

I hope you can help me with my questions. Thanks in advance! =)

I hope this helped somewhat. Good luck with your interview!

You dont have a timeline so its hard to determin your situation & give a correct responce.

We dont know when you entered the USA. If it was within one year of your medical the medical is still good. That would mean your medical was turned in at the POE & it would be forwarded to the AOS officer. If that is the case you dont need a C S. If it has been more than a year you will need to do a new medical.

If you dont have an acceptable medical you will not be approved for a green card at the interview. You will interview & then be told to get the medical & submit it with the RFE they will give you. There is no risk involved. You either comply with the criteria or dont approved.

The officer will go thru a checklist of items one of which is the medical. Your complete file will be there at the meeting.

Pictures are not part of the criteria that I know of. They didnt ask us about them. Doesnt make any difference where or how you were married as long as its legal.

Take any thing showing common billings, bank accounts ect that you have. It will have to be enough at this point & should be ok.

Not sure what you mean by USCIS screwed up when you moved 3 times in 8 months. Its your responcibility to make sure they have the correct addresses. That doesnt have anything to do with S Security. You can not get a S S card that can be used for work until you have a green card.

HI guys!

I think my medical will expire in May 2010. I guess it really doesn't hurt to have one. Because of all the moving, our file went from Guam to Atlanta to Reno (where we are now). So it basically transferred while we were moving. That's why it took almost 8 months for our AOS interview. I still don't have EAD or AP that's why I don't have SSN. I hope the IO will be more considerate of us since we are only living 3 months in this new house of ours. I really appreciate your reply. Thank you for all the help. =)
