Did you enter on a K1? if so then as long as you got married within the 90 days you are ok....

You do not need to file before your I-94 runs out... wait until you have your certificate and then file.... some people wait months before filing for AOS.....

Dont worry you will be fine

I don't know if Kezzie got your question right. The truth is that when you are granted a K1 visa you have to marry AND file for AOS before 90 days. This is why your I 94 is only valid for 90 days. Even if you married but didn't file for AOS when your I 90 expire you may be considered out of status.

However some people filed a few days after the AOS expiration and didn't have a problem. But don't wait for months.

Good luck

Thank you Kezzie.

By the way,I enter here in US as K-1 and already married within 90 days..My I-194 expire this Oct.3.. :( My questions: Is there any other form I will filled up?Any penalty for not filling the AOS form within 90 days limit? My documents will be ready in a week or more after Oct.3, since my marriage certificate is not yet arrived. :(

Kweli there is nothing in the K1 that says you have to file for AOS within 90 days of entry to the USA..... the only condition is that you marry within 90 days..... please check your information....

There is no penelty for not filling before I-94 has expired and no additional form are required....

Hey Guys,

This is just my two cents worth of info but on the I-485 instructions (page 3) it says:

Who Is Not Eligible to Adjust Status?

You failed to maintain your nonimmigrant status, other than through no fault of your own or for technical reasons; unless you are applying because you are:

An immediate relative of a United States citizen(parent, spouse, widow, widower or unmarried childunder 21 years old);

A K-1 fiancé(e) or a K-2 fiancé(e) dependent whomarried the United States petitioner within 90 days ofadmission; or

An H or I nonimmigrant or special immigrant (foreignmedical graduates, international organizationemployees or their derivative family members)

Yup, that "unless you are applying for" tells you that you are still elligible to adjust status as long as you married your spouse in the 90 days on a K1 visa. You're fine... its after six months its pretty "iffy". I filed 2 months after mine expired, and I'm approved.

Hello there! My K-1 visa expired June 26th, and did not apply for AOS before the expiration for some problems. I was able to send my application forms a month after the expiration, and I will be having my interview on October 3rd(tuesday next week) in Los Angeles District Office.

I believe it's okay to submit AOS application after the expiration of I-94 as long as you get married within the 90-day period. You will be okay. I will send a message on the 3rd of October about my interview experience... so we will absolutely know if it's okay or not. :D

You may apply but do it as soon as possible, so you can now have benefits... like applying for jobs and go to other countries for vacations. :D

I'm so silly.
