Hello- I'm new to this part of the forum as weve just made it out of the TSC hole. I apologize if I'm not posting this question in the proper thread...I wasn't sure where to start. My question is- my fiancé and I are planning our wedding for September 4. If possible- I would like to not do the civil ceremony & then the wedding- rather just the wedding on September 4. How close to the 90 days would we be safe to get married before filing for AOS? Is a week enough time to send the paper work on or is that not feasible? Just looking for information concerning how close to the 90 days you can send in the paper work for AOS?

You can send the paper work after the 90 days. Nothing bad will happen to you. The visa requirement is to marry within 90 days. There is actually no deadline for filing AOS. Of course the sooner you do, the sooner the clock starts toward getting work authorization and a driver license.

You will need your marriage certificate back from the county after they register it. Some will do walk in service and process it while you wait. Others want to mail it back and make you wait a few weeks. Just depends on your local county office where you marry.
