So…I've got my entire packet ready to send for permanent adjustment. Wife is here on a valid K-1, we just got married, etc. BUT I'm a bit worried that I don't have an NOA2 for the I-129.

What I do have is a copy of the I-129 with a big stamp of "APPROVED" with a date on it. This came in the mail with a letter stating approval. But when I look online for an image of a NOA2, it looks like a separate, official document, not just a photo copy of the approved I-129.

Should I be worried that this will not suffice?

Anyone with advice, thanks in advance.

thanks for your quick response! that's the one i've seen…..but why don't i have one? do you have to apply for it, AFTER getting the k-1?

do you know when in the process this would have been sent? thanks again!

I added a link to my post at the same time you posted this answer, check out that topic. You probably don't need to order a replacement, just make a color copy of the K-1 visa in the passport and include that.

You (the petitioner) should have received two NOAs (797) from USCIS, the 2nd one notifying you that your petition was approved is the one that you need a copy of for AOS.

One post with apparently personal information removed and returned to the thread as follows:

Here's what an actual NOA2 looks like:

The paper is green, thick, and has a little texture to it.

Check this topic for an answer, http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/323385-filing-for-aos-with-lost-noa2/

In addition, thread moved from K-1 Process forum to the main AOS/Family-Based forum -- OP's query involves that phase. ***
