Will I-131 Delay My Husbands AOS?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was recently told that if I apply for the I-131 with my AOS packet it will delay the overall process of my husband receiving his green card. Does anyone know anything about this? How long will it delay the process? I am ready to send my packet but suddenly feel worried that I should not apply for the I-131 as well.

Will I-131 Delay My Husbands AOS?

No. Who ever 'told you', is wrong. You should vette their info, now, nowish, asking for citations and reference data.

Since yer at it, about to pull the trigger, add in the I-765 as well.
