Assuming you got married within the 90 day time limit for a K-1 visa, you now file the I-485, I-131, and I-765 for AOS, AP and EAD. Include your marriage certificate and any information about the co-mingling of your lives--financial information, child's birth certificate, benefit information, etc. Send it all off with the $1070 filing fee for yourself and begin waiting again. You will need to complete the I-864 and make about the poverty guidelines for your family size. If the medical was not complete due to missing vaccinations then a civil suregon will need to fill out the I-693 after you receive the shots. You can read the guides here.

Good luck,

Dave

thanks guys...Question is how long do i have to fill out next batch of paperwork?

There is no time limit per se. Once the I-94 expires you will be out-of-status. If you have any dealings with LEO and they do an immigration check, you can be detained and made to appear before an immigration judge. The judge will tell you to file the AOS ASAP or give you a deadline. That is the only risk in not filing other than not being able to leave the US or work. The medical you did is valid for 1 year. If for some reason it takes longer than that to file, you will need to do another medical exam. Should you wait until after your second wedding anniversary, there is an issue about now having to file the I-130 with the I-485 which has been discussed at great length here on VJ--I recommend you file ASAP to begin the LPR part of the journey which means you can file for ROC sooner.

Good luck,

Dave
