I am fixing to send off my husband's AOS from K1 and was wondering if it was ok to send off the AOS package without any relationship proof besides the marriage certificate and proof we have joint bank account....although my name has not been changed on the bank acct...bc I forgot to bring my marriage certificate the day I added him....I really don't have much more than that right now...since he's been here only 2.5 months. ...I am just ready to send off his AOS and had that small doubt as to whether or not that will be a red flag or problem....thanks in advance

The idea behind AOS is to adjust his status, not to prove that your relationship is bonafide- you'll have ROC to do that. You will need to send the marriage certificate and your financial information. Have you read the guides on AOS yet? Everything you need to know is in there. http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1k3aos

How to Adjust Status (AOS)

(For K1 Visa Holders)

Understanding Adjustment of Status:

After marrying your US citizen spouse (within 90 days) within the United States, you have file for Adjustment of Status.

The Adjustment of Status (AOS) Process is designed for the Visa Holders to change their original entry status. In this case, K1 holders entered on the U.S. on a 1-entry visa and need to change their status so they can gain benefits (such as employment, travel privileges, and most importantly Permanent Residence.) First read the AOS Guide: (Very Important!)

http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1aos

Just follow the guide step-by-step. It's a lot of work but do 1 thing at time. Most people do all 3 at once. It’s the best option!

So if you're doing all 3 (Green Card, Employment Card, & Advance Parole), attach all the required documents with each application and mail together in same packet to the correct address.

The Medical Exam application needs to be completed by K1 visa holder and a local Civil Surgeon. Search for the closet Civil Surgeon near you using the link below.

https://egov.uscis.gov/crisgwi/go?action=offices.type&OfficeLocator.office_type=CIV

I paid about $75 for them to complete the forms. Try to find the best deal, some places will try and over-charge you. Most people who file should have just got there Medical done in the Dominican Rep and if they got all their required vaccinations and shots they will not need to get it again (if it’s under 1 year). So remind them you just need to have the Civil Surgeon complete their portion of the I-693. Make sure the K1/K3 Visa Holder has their Medical History form called DS-3025 (given to them after Medical Exam in Santo Domingo).

Remember to gather all of the correct documents. Each form (I-485, I-765, & I-131) require certain things. You will need to have 2 passport photos for each form. Total of 6. Have the packet organized so everything is labeled and easy to find. I'm including the Cover Letter/Checklist I made with my Packet. Feel free to use it.

Checking your Case Status

After your AOS Packet is sent, you will go through a similar process as before. More waiting and more preparation. (and you thought you were all done?) Once you receive your NOA1, you can check your “case status” on www.UCSIS.gov. You will also receive updates through email and/or text if you chose to submit the Form G-1145 (E-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance).

The only proof of relationship you need with the I-485 is a copy of your marriage certificate. Nothing else. If you get an interview, then you take the proof of your valid marriage in case they want to see it.
