Fiance in US, Now What?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All! So my Fiance (now Husband) was granted his K1 Visa and made his entry into the US on 10/18. Soon after we got married and applied for his AOS paperwork. He went for his fingerprinting on 12/18; however, we are still awaiting his papers. Can someone please tell me how long does it usually take to get the papers so he can begin working here legally? Also, once he receives his papers is he eligible to Travel out of the US?

Sounds funny, but what exactly did we apply for? His Green card? Your responses are appreciated.

Thanks!

Did you apply for EAD and AP in your husband's paperwork? If so, you'll receive your work authorization probably pretty soon.

Yes, the AOS is for the green card. This could take 6 months or more, so that's why people apply for EAD and AP so they can work/leave the country.

Strongly suggest you read through the guides


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

Thanks for your response nitsirk - yes i applied for an EAD in my husband's paperwork... Just awaiting on that now - any ideas of how soon is soon? Desperately waiting and don't know what the next step is. Like I stated, he went for his bio-metrics on 12/18 and now we are just waiting for i don't what.. Are you telling me that once we get the EAD he is eligible to leave the country as well? I know he is eligible to work... Also, is an EAD a card or letter or something we should be receiving in the mail?

the instructions state that you should receive the EAD 60-90 days, but it normally boils down the the center really, I think you are allowed to contact them when it reaches 75 days and haven;t heard anything from them. I wish you the best of luck with your application.

I think your bes bet would be to check the uscis for your center number, I know that when I check case status it normally populates a customer service number I can call
