Hello everybody, I have now sent my AOS packet and all I would like to know is how long will I have to wait to receive any notice or get approved for my residence card? Any answers will be appreciated!

Depends on whether or not you'll have an interview. First thing is receiving NOA1s, second is receiving biometrics appointment. After that, you either get an interview notice(transferred to local office), an RFE or a notice saying your case has been transferred to CSC.

Right now, you can take a peak at the processing times for AOS. They're only estimates. If you don't receive a notice within 30 days, call USCIS. Before then, they won't do anything. Keep an eye on the biometrics appointment letter. It's important not to miss out on that appointment. Some people receive it almost at the same time as the NOA1, others a month later.

Your topic needs to be moved to the AOS forum as you're done with the K1(and congrats!). :)

And appointment for AOS(when it's this early) is the biometrics appointment. It'll say in the letter where to go and at which time. Sometimes, you can do a walk-in(go there days before). Just remember your passport/ID, appointment letter and if you've changed your last name after marrying, then a copy of your marriage certificate. :)

The letter is more than likely for your biometrics appointment. That is where you go to your local USCIS office to have your photo taken and fingerprinting done. The letter tells you the address of the office to go to, and what time to be there. It also lists what you need to bring with you.

The letter looks a lot like this:

You should scroll down the page of the AOS guide and read from the point of, "After Filing: What Happens?" It will explain the process: http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1k3aos
