I am sure the answer to my question is here somewhere, but I am unfortunatley in a position that I do not have time to research and search for information.

My fiance came to the country one month ago, we got married two weeks ago and were just starting to do our paperwork for AOS. Last week, I was diagnosed with an illness that we require me to have surgery this Friday and I will be out of commission for several weeks. Stressing now, because we want to get AOS filed before I go into the hospital on Friday.

We know we don't need to file right away, but I am going to be out of work for several months and we will need him to be able to work as soon as he can ( Yes.. I will still qualify for affidavit of support. Thank GOD).

My question is.. what the heck is a civil surgeon? Can we go to any doctor to have these forms completed or do I need to find a specific doctor, as was required for our visa interview?

I am hoping we can just make an appointment with any doctor, this week,and get these forms done.. but fearing it is not going to be that simple.

Thanks for the informaiton any one can give me. If I had more time I could research all this myself.. and just kicking myself that I didn't start preparing for AOS the day we were approved for the visa.

No, you will have to go to a specific doctor to have the report done. You can find a list of the civil surgeons in your area, on the USCIS site. Be prepared to pay between 80.00-300.00 dollars.

It has to be a specific one. If you're fiance's medical was done within the last year don't let them tell you you need a whole new one, all you need is his vaccinations transcribed. Depending on where you live and your CS it could be very easy, mine was just a walk in, pay them $50 (30 for the transcription and $20 to get a varicella titre done) and they will fill out all the forms and have them for you in a couple days.

Thats a list of some of the recommended ones on here who do the transcriptions fairly cheeply.

As stated above you must use a specific type of doctor.

You ought to be able to utilize the vaccination record received when your spouse had his medical for the visa petition assuming the medical was done within the past 12 months. And it sounds like that would be true in your case. See the AOS Guide here on VJ for the specifics (Item 11 under Assembling the I-485 Packet) >>

Now there have been RFE's for another complete medical when going through Adjustment of Status. So there are no absolutes (unfortunately) as to requiring a new medical or not as you can see in the various threads about this question here on VJ.
