Hi, I am a Canadian Citizen that applied for adjustment of status through marriage to a US citizen. Our interview was on May 27th and it went so smooth. The interviewer only reviewed the I-485 and asked me all the times I have visited the United States. I was charged when I was a juvenile and I had a DUI that was dismissed but that had no affect on our interview. I just wanted to say DO NOT listen to everything people say on here alot of people have very good advice and some have terrible (ESCPECIALLY the K1 people). I applied for a K1 visa when I came here to visit my boyfriend at the time but I found out that I could withdraw the petition and get married and apply for AOS, well alot of people on here said I would get denied and what I was doing is fraud and since I have a juvenile record they said I should return to Canada and do it the "right" way. So all in all just don't listen to everything people say. Good luck to everyone :D

Congrats and best wishes!!!!

I had a few experiences myself that we got away with that most people think you can't do..... such as, after I received my K-1 visa, I was still able to enter the U.S. without activating it until the date I decided I wanted to use it, and I was also able to leave the U.S. after I activated my K-1 visa (to go to my brother's wedding in Canada), and then I returned to the U.S. without any problems because I hadn't gotten married yet.

I know this would not work for everyone, but it worked for us.
