Just a quick question about when to file the AOS... Im thinking in advance - when i arrive in the states - we arrange our wedding and get married - is there a timelimit by which the AOS has to be filed?

Our plan was to get there arrange the wedding, get married, find and buy a home and settle in then apply for AOS so we dont have to change addresses later on while waiting for the AOS. Im intending on buying a home right off with the money I have from selling my home here, and then that will save us some money on paying rent, with that money we can get insurance. I know the marriage has to take place within 3 months of arriving in the states. And if we file the AOS how easy is it to change the address at a later date? The address we would put on the forms is his mum's place, which eventually will be for sale when we buy our own home as his mum will be moving in with us in our bigger home.

Once your initial 90 days runs out, you will be out of status until you get your application in. Days out of status aren't altogether a good thing, but they are forgiven in this case once you get your green card. That said, there is a strong recommendation to get your AOS application in as soon as possible after your wedding.

Keep in mind, too, that, when filing for AOS, lots of people also file for employment authorization (EAD) and advanced parole (AP). It takes 3 months to get the EAD card, so you can't work until you receive it. And it takes about 2 months to get the AP document, without which you can't re-enter the USA, should you need to leave the country before you get your green card.

Keep these things in mind when making your decision and try to limit the out of status time to less than 180 days.
