Filed: AOS (pnd) Country: Brazil
Timeline

I arrived in the US on a K-1 Visa on September 20th 2009 and got married the next day. Problem is we haven't filed for AOS yet because we had a very hard time trying to find someone to translate my birth certificate. We finally got that document translated and we are ready to file for AOS. My authorized stay was until December 19th 2009 and my visa expired on February 27th 2010, I understand I have overstayed.

Now, should we just apply for AOS like nothing happened, or do I have to do something else since I overstayed? Is this a case we should consider hiring an attorney? How deep in trouble are we?

Thank you!

As long as you got married withing the 90 days the "overstay" will be forgiven :)


Invictus..

Out of the night that covers me,

Black as the Pit from pole to pole,

I thank whatever gods may be

For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance

I have not winced nor cried aloud.

Under the bludgeonings of chance

My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the Horror of the shade,

And yet the menace of the years

Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll.

I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul.

William Ernest Henley

You only file the I-130 if you marry outside the 90 days.

She'll be fine without it.

Just do AOS as soon as you can and everything will be okay.

File for AOS from K-1. Nothing special required. You fulfilled the terms of the K-1 visa--get married to your original USC petitioner in 90 days.

Good luck! :thumbs:

Thank you so much for your replies. We really wanted to do everything before my I-94 expired (hey we even got married 1 day after I arrived here) but the translation thing was really a pain in the butt and we started to freak out, even though somewhere on the instructions it says to file up to 180 days after you got out of status, before you are subject to to the 3 year ban thing. Although it also says that people who overstayed a visa is not eligible. Go figure. We will file ASAP, don't want to be out of status for such a long time.

I know people that have arrived on k1, married within the 180 days, yet have not filed AOS for months/years. One lady I know has been in this situation for almost ten years. She has since had two children. I think due to income reason/lack of joint sponsorship she has not completed the AOS. Having the two children makes it even more difficult because teh household size has increased thus higher income is required.

I would do the AOS soon, as laws can change quickly. Also situations change quickly.
