Now that I've sent my AOS packet...

18 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I dont know, I'm kind of bored! It felt as if I was working on this project, gathering all the info, hunting my husband down for him to get missing pieces of the puzzle :bonk: , it was kind of an adventure :lol: . Now that I've mailed it off to the Chicago Mail Box, I'm somewhat sad that that project is over. Am I crazy lol?

I know there will be many more developements, biometrics, interviews, possible RFE's, ROC etc. and that it can be a pain and that many people are suffering from it as a result...being on a TN and AOS'ing is easier as there's no being apart or much disturbance in your everyday life. But still, sending off my super duper thick AOS app felt like the end of a project.

Maybe I just need to get a life :rofl:

I was excited to collect evidence for 2 years and now that my ROC is coming up i even started sorting organizing filling forms etc early, i'm just wrapping up a few loose ends with a couple more recent months items to include in my ROC packet then im mailing it early September. Its not even September yet and I have already reached the point where i just want to get rid of this thing because its making me antsy lol I cant wait for Sept to come fast enough so i can get rid of all these papers and be done with them and hopefully get my 10yr card quickly lol!

You aren't crazy! we pretty much all go through something like that because immigration is such a big part of our lives. You can start collecting for ROC!!! lol haha.

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 for your reply! I'm so glad someone else understands haha

I had started putting all my forms, papers, copies in a messenger bag specifically for our AOS application and I was wondering what I'd do what that messenger bag now, but you just answer my question: I WILL START ORGANIZING FILES FOR THE ROC!! :rofl:

I'm laughing but its a great idea...it will satisfy my new found need for collecting papers, organzing and filling them. AOS'ing brings out sides of my personality I wasnt aware of :lol:

Your not alone!

I felt the same way after we mailed our I-130. And then again after my DS-230. And I will probably feel the same after my interview!

But, good suggestion there - after interview I can keep on collecting for ROC lol :lol:

Sorry, you mentioned that you need to get a life.

My posit is - Lifes can be rented. Not really need to 'get one'.

However, in all seriousness, adjusting from a TN-1, you were supposed to file the I-693, the medical exam and medical report. It's part of the requirement in the I-485.

I was asking about yer medical - did you send off the medical stuff with yer AOS packet?

Yes, I did do the medical and sent it along the AOS in the sealed envelope provided by the Civil Surgeon doctor. The skin test for tb wasnt pleasant but I made it out alive :unsure:

Excellent news on the medical bits - that's a big thing.

IMO, the life you rented came at a price, that TN-1 visa.

Now you must rent different life, whilst waiting for the greencard.

Good Luck!

(my apologies, my penchant for 'lol' is non-existent, I'm a cranky curmudgeon with a poutine habit)

Big boy, Oh Canadien, I make my own. Tis no place, that I know of, that can make the right gravy.

Cheese curds are unattainable in retail, as well - I've a goat cheese maker/buddy that sells me 10 pounds/month.

Guys don't obsess about the ROC stuff - seriously people send way too much stuff. Like you've said - have somewhere to file bills & evidence and move on with your life for the next 2 years!

Enjoy any free time before you have to start looking for a job - that was the worst mistake I made - I had 5 months off and I couldn't relax because I was thinking ahead to when I would apply for a new job. Sleep in, get that exercise you've always wanted to, play video games or make elaborate dinners (or have someone make them for you - ha!) :) Whatever makes you happy!

Have fun!

I have to send a lot and obsess over ROC just like AOS my husband is not here AGAIN! hes deployed for every single part of the immigration stuff. Likely even my naturalization process as well! The only thing I don't have are affidavits at this point but everyone in VJ says its not needed if you have tons of finance and commingling evidence so I may just relax on the affidavit part lol

Affidavits - like letters from other people? How about from his family? Do you visit or do they? I giggle a little when folks create a freaking binder of stuff to send - like when you send bills - don't send every bill from every month for 3 yrs - Just send 1 from every yr - as long as you prove yearly you're still together at the same address, that's all they care about.

We sent bill samples, letter from the bank, paystubs showing we deposited into the same accounts and the deed to our house and tax transcripts.Nothing too crazy. 2 letters from my husband's mother and his best friend.

Enjoy your time no matter what!
