AOS can mean either.

As you are CR/IR-1 then it means Affidavit of Support.

Also Adjustment of Status Costs $1,010. You will not need this AOS as entry will trigger LRP Status.

Adjustment of Status

Ouch. Sorry.

For someone that filed an I-130 petition,

and is ripping through NVC with additional processing,

AOS at NVC means 'Affadavit of Support'

Maybe a good time to review ?

DS-230 - http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_3190.html

I-864 - http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_3730.html

General NVC stuff - http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_1335.html

and a mini-how-to for using the online payment portal

tyriun_j - since yer a Canadien, you qualify for NVC Electronic Processing, as well, an OPT-IN program to deliver documents to NVC via email - if you'd like to participate, take a gander at http://www.visajourney.com/wiki/index.php/NVC_Electronic_Processing and the Canadien-specific topic at http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/224010-electronic-processing/

Good Luck !

If you are paying $70 and processing any type of the I-864 then you are filing the Affidavit Of Support.

For further clarification look here:

You will need to scroll down almost to the bottom of the page for the complete explanation. :)
