Her k1 visa already ended when she entered the US. Her I-94 is what's expiring, and the only rule is that you marry within 90 days. Just file for AOS as soon as possible, but don't worry about the 90 day thing. :) Congrats on the wedding :)


My Journey:

We met through a study-abroad program in Shanghai, China in August of 2009

We got engaged March of 2010

I received my K1 VISA in 6 months (June-December 2010)

We were married 04/02/2011
I received my conditional 2-year greencard (AOS) in 2.5 months with no interview (April-June 2011)

Our son was born 02/03/2013

I received my masters degree in Speech-Language Pathology 04/17/2013

I received my 10-year greencard (ROC) in 3 months with no interview (March-June 2013)

My husband returned from deployment 06/20/2013

My naturalization journey took 4 months (April-August 2014)

I became a US citizen on 08/01/2014

Received passport in 3 weeks (regular processing)

Thank you, VJ! smile.png

Ah I see.. So, you mean, we can file for AOS after the marriage anytime even though the 90 days has ended? And even after 2 years of K1 holder arrival, we can file for AOS? Btw, can we file for AOS before marriage??-oh maybe NO. :unsure:

you mean, we can file for AOS after the marriage anytime even though the 90 days has ended?
Technically, yes, but after the 90 days, she'll be out of status, and you will NOT want to run into any CBP or ICE agents in the meantime.
And even after 2 years of K1 holder arrival, we can file for AOS?
Yes (along with an I-130), but she won't be able to work or to travel out of the U.S. during that time, and you risk encountering ICE agents who will NOT be impressed or understanding.
can we file for AOS before marriage?
Definitely not. File after you receive your marriage certificate (order multiple copies) and optimally within the 90 days of the I-94 validity, or just as soon as possible thereafter. Edited by TBoneTX
