Hi,

Just wondering if anyone could advise me on the following...

Due to being pregnant at the time of my medical I was unable to have the chest x-ray. Therefore I was told that once I'd had the baby that I would need to complete the medical, which was fine but that would mean that my I-94 would be expired. I spoke to someone at the USCIS that said I definitely could not submit the AOS forms without the completed medical and not to worry about the I-94 as long as I'd got married within the K1 time frame which I had.

Anyway to cut a long story short, I understand from the guides section here that I have to submit a copy of my I-94 with my AOS forms, does it matter that it's out of date now? And if it does matter what do I need to do about it?

Thanks in advance!

It doesn't matter.... You have fulfilled the terms of the K-1 visa that you entered on. The fact that your I-94 will have expired by the time you file for AOS won't have any negative effect on your case. I would advise you to get the medical done ASAP so that you can file your AOS forms sooner rather than later though.

Good luck for the future.

Just to reiterate no you don't need to file before the I-94 is expired. You are out of status though so you should be aware of that and stay away from borders.

I am curious though, you arrived on the K1... Are you saying that during your K1 medical you were pregnant? Or that you've come to the US and tried to have the I-693 done here and they tried to do a new medical?

Yes, when I had the medical in London I was pregnant so I didn't have the chest x-ray, they said that I would need to have it done once I'd had the baby to complete that side of things. It's been a pretty rough experience trying to complete something that should be so simple. To cut a long story short the CS that I had basically said that the medical in London was worthless and he needed to do the whole medical again, I informed him that I didn't need to have it done again but he said that he needed the information for his records. His medical also included the gential check again, which my husband and I are going to seek legal advice over as he physically touched me. He also said that I couldn't just have the chest x-ray, that I needed a TB skin test first which came back positive. He then sent me for the x-ray which was clear but it wasn't over then. As my skin test was positive he said that I had to be enrolled into a TB program and possibly have treatment for 9 months because I "could" have latent TB and I HAD to attend the program or he would not sign my forms. So I attended the first appointment and thankfully the DR I saw didn't see the point in treating me do to a number of factors, one being the fact that the medication can cause very bad side affects such has severe liver problems so he felt that it was better to just leave the medication as there was such a high chance of the skin test being a false positive and I could therefore be doing myself more harm than good.

So after a string of Dr's appointments, feeling physically violated, being treated like I have TB and paying out more money I finally have my forms completed! Definitely the worst part of this whole preocess.

Wow. Just want to say that I'm sorry for your bad CS experience. That seemed very harsh and inappropriate. :(

Also, congrats on the baby and goodluck with AOS :)
