Hi VJ friends,

I am new to the forum and very excited to start my journey of AOS.

I am getting all the documents ready to file AOS I485 along with I130 forms, spouse based.

We married on March 2012 and I am in US on F1 visa.

I have question regarding preparing package for I-485.

I was under the impression that I have to get Immigration Medical Exam done and get I-693 form from civil surgeons and submit it along with I-485 form. But the receptionist at civil surgeon's office told me that I need to file I-693 only when I am asked after filing I-485 form from US Immigration.

I am bit confused here and I would like your valuable guidance. The I-693 form instruction clearly says that I need to complete the form and submit it with I485 form.

Please help me out.

Thanks.

you need to get a medical done before you submit the paperwork, you will received a sealed envelope from the doctor which needs to be posted with all the paperwork,, i know how stressful this is after going through it myself a couple of years ago, and now again getting my daughter across to the states, keep us informed :) and good luck

The receptionist at the office was wrong. You complete your medical beforehand and send it all in together. This individual is quite mistaken. If you don't send it you will get an RFE for it and slow down the process.

It would be the case if you were adjusting from K-1. Adjustment from anything else requires I-693 submitted along with I-485.
