Hi..

I just came to USA for K1 Visa ...So any one can tell me how can i apply for green card and how much cost...???

This is the guide.

http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1k3aos

The total cost is $1,070 and the fee of I-131 ( advance of parole) and I-765 (EAD) are waived if you file together with I-485.

First you have to get married within 90 days of arrival in the US and then apply for AOS - adjustment of status - here's the guide. Total cost is $1070.00. Good luck!

Print out your I-94 info > https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/request.html

Follow this guide for getting the SSN > http://www.visajourney.com/content/ssn

Follow this guide for AOS > http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1k3aos

The fees for the I-765(EAD-work authorization) and I-131(AP-advance parole for travel) are waived when filed with a pending I-485, so include both of those too. It takes about 60-90 days to receive the EAD/AP combo card, which will allow you to work(along with an SSN) and re-enter the US when traveling abroad while waiting for the green card approval.

You need all the supporting documents for each form as well, so read the instructions for each one. You can also search here on VJ for what to include with each form if you get stumped. There are also example forms here on VJ you can look at when filling out the forms. They can be helpful.

Oh, and here are the details you need about whether or not you need to see a civil surgeon > http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/428381-i-693-report-of-medical-examination-and-vaccination-report/?p=6206232

For AOS, the medical is good for a year. They also must have all the required vaccinations as well.
