Timeline

my husband and I applied for AOS in May, completed Biometrics June 3rd and have our interview on July 19th. I've been reading around and it says that if all goes well at the interview, then the green card comes within "weeks" of the interview, but someone told me that it can take up to a year?!? Does anyone know if in fact this is true???

Also...we applied for EAD at the same time as our AOS, and have heard NOTHING. Has anyone had the same experience? would love some info!!

Thanks! -Joanna

Wouldn't worry about EAD the GC interview is coming up and you will have the GC soon, EAD would no longer be usable.

Though I have seen some people posting on VJ about never getting EAD and getting the GC.

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

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

AOS was approved in 2 months and 8 days without interview.

ROC was approved in 3 months and 2 days without interview.

Thanks! That's very helpful. It just seems like everything up to this point has taken so LONG, and now this has gone fairly fast....so I don't want to feel like it's "too good to be true"?!

Almost everybody gets their card within weeks of the interview. There's always exceptions where things happen and it gets hung up after the interview, but not usually. You may get the EAD card before the interview because the usual timeframe on those is 60-90 days. If your greencard is approved first (because they're going so fast), then they won't bother issuing an EAD card. You won't need it because the GC authorizes you to work. Some offices have even taken the EAD card at the interview. I've read of other offices that gave an envelope and said to mail the EAD card to the office when the GC arrived.

Why are ya'll doing interviews?

I did a K1 and did the initial interview in Manila, after that doing AOS/ROC all we did was fill out paperwork and go to Biometrics. We got approved on AOS and ROC and got 2 year and 10 year GC in mail.

Is it mainly married filers who get interviews for AOS?

Lots of people adjusting from a K-1 get interviewed. It seems to be about a 50-50 chance on whether you get one or not.
