Yeah sorry I meant to say "my then fiancee, now wife". We got married before sending our AOS package :)

You should volunteer for some non-profit organization or something ! Give some good cause and show USCIS that you are a person of a good moral plus you will feel better knowing you've helped to someone ! :)

Thanks that's a good suggestion but is that even legal? :/ I'm adjusting from a B2 visitor status so I really don't know what I am allowed to do and what not :/

Of course it's legal…You are not getting paid for that and thats what matters! There is a really big number of organizations in need of help! I am currently in the same position as you and I do volunteer for Juvenile diabetes research foundation!

So go on do something good for yourself and others ;)

And btw good luck with your visa journey!
