Question regarding a K1 visa that will soon expire

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Colombia

Hello all,

First I would like to thank everyone on this board that has helped guide us through the K1 process. We truly couldn't have done it without the help from people on this board.

I now have a question related to AOS. I married my wife on 9/4 and her visa is going to expire at the end of this month on 9/30/2010. We have already filed the AOS papers and received the NOA letter.

My question is what type of documents should she carry until we get her green card? My thought would be her passport a copy of our marriage license and a copy of the NOA1 letter but I'm not sure.

Thank you

Her K-1 expired when she used it. Its the I-94 that would be expiring soon.

Yes she should keep thos things on her but be very carefull with them specially the passport. Never leave her purse in the car or anything.

Your I-129f was approved in 5 days from your NOA1 date.

Your interview took 67 days from your I-129F NOA1 date.

I suggest take a photocopy and carry those in her purse, not unless you are going somewhere where they will be needing an identification. I go around without anything and when they ask for an id I just show my library card issued here with just my name and a picture of me or my debit card. I am also on the AOS process and I-94 expired last 18 Sep 2010.

As Inky said earlier, her K1 visa expired the day she entered the US. It's only used to enter a country and then it has no validity after that. As long as you got married during the 90 days before the I-94 expired, you're fine.
