Hey all!

My fiance was approved for his k-1 visa and is currently in the USA on that visa, is applying for his SSN soon and we plan to marry in march. My question is...what all is involved with the AOS process? Do we attend another interview? The "Congratulations" letter isnt very helpful, all it states is to file the AOS paperwork after our marriage, of course within the 90 days. Is it really just a matter of sending in all the paperwork for the AOS and then wait for the greencard? Seeing as how its the USA government, seems like they'd want to make you work harder....

congrats!! that's exactly what i thought when i was approved for my k1, but then realized when i started to file, that the paperwork is only slightly less painful than the fiance petition + interview paperwork (and really expensive).

read the guides, that's how i figured it out.

basically, you'll need

AOS (I-485 + supporting documents (there are a lot, including G-325A, I-864 + supporting docs))

EAD (I-765 + supporting documents)

AP (I-131 + supporting documents)

affidavit of support (I-864) + supporting docs

G-325A: biographic data form (this is part of supporting documents for AOS)

G-1145 (for electronic notification of updates to case)

$1070 filing fee for everything together (EAD and AP are free only if you file concurrently).

printer & photocopier :)

paperclips

the good news is you have most of the documents already from the k1 visa: i believe the only NEW documents (at least for us: we had 3 year's worth of all tax transcripts ready for the interview in MTL and didn't need cosponsor) were marriage certificate and i believe it was 6 passport sized photos (or was it 8)?

use fedex overnight...we've been using it for everything and it is fast, easy, reliable, and honestly not that much more expensive:)

good luck!!! wow, i can't believe i remember all of that above stuff still.

re: interview. some k1's that apply for aos require an interview (at a local office), some are transfered to the california service center, where an interview will likely not be required.
