andyon,

I would recommend that you post your question in the AOS forum. OT is not the right place for immigration discussions.

Which one of you is the non USC? If your husband is, he is suppose to file the AOS (which is for the greencard) and should also be living in the US if that is what you guys are filing for.

we filed a k-3 and i think we are the last step ...the affidavit of support. im having a terrible time deciding what to do..i dont want a delay..hes already been gone for so long...id appreciate any help or advice....

What you have done is a very common thing...over reading....You have stated that your husband is still in the United Kingdom as such you can not do the AOS, I think you have got yourself confused with the situation. Try to answer these question then go over everything again.

Have you applied for the K3??

Have you had your interview in London yet??

Once you have had the above and your husband arrives in the USA then you apply for Ajustment of Status (AOS).

I hope I have made it a bit clearer for you.

Best wishes

Janice

I believe AOS in her thread is referring to the Affidavit of Support (I-864) while I think you are referring to Adjustment of Status (which is what AOS is most commonly referred to).

Now the situation has been made clear, you fill in your part and choose either parent to fill in another form, if it were me I would choose your father, combine the income your mother and father have and put it all on the one form they fill in. I am hoping that this makes sense. So two of the Same form but each of you filling in one each....hehehe now I know I am babbling. I know getting all your ducks in a row can be mind filling but you will get there.

ok..heres my dilema. my husband is sitting in england waiting on me to fill out my aos. i dont know how to answer question number 1...is it A or E. my parents are co-sponsers....what do they answer?? and their income is combined and they are retired...how do they file..together???or seperate??? im so confused. everything weve done ive learned from this site..thank you to everyone who has helped us..i have read and read and read..lol. and also.....how long does it take an aos to get approved and to get an interview date???

We weren't a K-3 (we were K-1), but hopefully can help. On I-864, you would be considered the primary sponsor (a), regardless if you meet the poverty guidelines or not. Your parents (as co-sponsors)...are you living in the same household with them? Are they filing together or separately? Do both have income and/or assets?

you know. tonight i have just realized how little i know about all of this...lol. we fell in love and got married and thought we'd figure out all of this stuff later. so we really do not know what we are doing. im just wondering how long it will take from the time they recieve my affidavit of support until he gets an interview date???? anyone have an idea??

my parents do not live with me. and i have no idea how they should file...everything they ahve is together. they are going on thier income..which they are retired from the military and have plenty of assests. so..do they answer E on question #1 and i dont understand if i should choose YES or NO on question 3???

Does anyone else live with your parents (in their household)?

Does one of your parents have sufficient income/assets to be considered co-sponsor, or does it require both of your parents?

Is it only your husband that will be immigrating to US, or are there any children involved?
