Hi All! My husband came on a k-1 visa. We submitted for AOS in May. I just received the I-797C, Notice of Action for our interview date. It is set at the end of July. I have a few questions.

There is a HUGE list of things to bring to the interview. It is quite overwhelming. In looking closer however, I see that we have already submitted many of these items (birth certificates and what-not), so I guess this is the time to bring the original (plus yet ANOTHER copy) of everything.

Questions:

One thing is listed as "all documentation establishing your eligibility for Lawful Permanent Resident Status". What would this be?

If my birth certificate clearly shows I was born in the USA, wouldn't that be enough proof of "evidence of US Citizenship"?

There are many more questions- but I need to go through previous packages that we sent in hopes of answering them...

Thank you!

About your US citizenship, yes I do think the birth certificate is enough.

About the list, well we took everything we could think of well organized for easy access: we had two boxes filled with paperwork and photo albums as well as letters from parents and friends (affidavits), magazine subscriptions in both our names, printouts of emails, phone bills with highlighted phone calls, car title, life insurance, letter from employer, birthday cards, anything at all that had both our names/faces on it. We also had two full albums of photos of us and family/friends.

It seemed like a lot and it took us several days to put together but when the Officer saw our boxes he just smiled and stamped my passport - end of interview. :)

Hope this helps...

I brought my passport and birth certificate. For my husband who entered on a k1 visa, I just brought his passport with the visa, his ead card, and the AP documents. They only asked to see his passport and we were approved on the spot. I brought everything else on the list as well, but those were the documents I used to establish legal lpr status. Good luck on your interview!

Thanks for the responses but I am very confused. :wacko: It seems as if some people just walk in with supporting evidence of their relationship- but there is so much more you have to do and get together. I received a HUGE LIST of things to bring to the interview: (doesn't everyone?)

-Interview Notice and Gov't issued ID

-Medical exam (I-693) and vaccination in sealed envelope (unless submitted)

-completed affidavit of support (I-864) with all required evidence (not going to list all here as I believe this was already submitted)

-all documentation establishing your eligibility for Lawful Permanent Resident status (WHAT IS THIS?)

-any immigration-related documentation ever issued to you. (EAD, I-512)..we do not have ANY of this yet...what else could this be?

-All travel documents used to enter the US (does this mean the plane ticket or just the passport with I-94 stamp?

-Your birth certificate

-petitioners birth cert

-copy of certified marriage cert; all death/divorce papers from former spouses

-supporting evidence of relationship (this is the easy stuff to get)

-original and copy of each supporting document that you submitted with your application.

-certified English translation for each foreign document (which means birth cert; divorce paper,..) There are certain criteria for translator. We had this all done, but submitted our originals with paperwork over a year ago... not sure if I need to get this all done again.?.

I am a bit overwhelmed with getting "originals" together..and trying to find out if I have to get this all translated yet again. I worry about the "already submitted" part.. Guess I will bring the entire file we submitted when we applied for AOS.

We have pics, bank acct and a few other things... not much due to certain constraints, but enough. It is the "legal" paperwork I am most worried about.

Any help on any the above would be appreciated. Thanks!

If it makes you feel any better, my interview letter lists all the same things to bring too.

It does look overwhelming!

I think that with the ones that say "unless already submitted" you can just bring copies of it.

I'm just going to bring the copies of my medical and affidavit of support, because I already submitted these.

For the affidavit of support, because we submitted copies of the W-2, we'll bring the original to the interview.

As for documentation establishing your eligibility for Lawful Permanent Resident status, for marriage-based like our case:

The marriage certificate, USC's proof citizenship, and beneficiary's proof of legal entry into US (I-94, entry stamp on passport, + visa)

I don't even have some of these because I lost the passport I used to enter (so orginal visa, I-94, everything is lost!)

So I'm just going to bring copies of these :P

any immigration-related documentation ever issued to you: I would say just bring every NOAs USCIS has ever given you.. If you don't have the stuff listed, then you don't have it. I once had EAD issued to me years ago, but it is also lost so I only have a copy.

Not worried about it ;)

Travel documents used to enter the US: yes, the passport with the K-1 visa, and the I-94.

Some of the documents you have can be used for multiple items on the interview list.

For the translation, yes, I would say get it translated again to be safe.

And take a deep breath! :)
