AOS from TN - thoughts, experiences, etc

Hi guys!

My boyfriend/now fiance recently proposed and we are engaged. I am a USC and my fiance last entered the US with TN status (non-immigrant work status for Canadians) in December when he obtained a TN for a new job (he has been in the US working on TN status for almost 10 years - always in status). We already have a child together and would like to expand our family in the near future. He had always said he wanted to go back to Canada to live/work but now that we are going to get married he has decided to stay in the US and we would like to raise our child and any future children here permanently, especially as we are trying to get pregnant again.

1. I have been reading a lot that AOS is an option for someone in our situation and I would like to hear your thoughts. I would LOVE to hear from anyone who has gone down this exact route as well (AOS from TN).

2. My worries as I see it would be immigrant intent issues......my now-fiance was not asked any immigrant intent questions during his last TN interview in December and at that time he had not proposed and he was still planning on one day going back to Canada. But that has changed. What are your thoughts regarding any immigrant intent issues with regards to our situation?

3. Another concern I have is that my boyfriend has supported me since our son was born in 2 years ago - I have not worked at all and we have lived together and he has claimed me as a dependant on his US tax returns. I wonder if this in some way, shape or form would cause any issues?

Thanks for your responses!
