Hey Everyone!! James and I are officially a member of the June AOS filers -- sent our package Express Priority Mail this morning and should arrive on Monday. New chapter, new thread, and new headaches :D

Good luck to everyone! Although the hardest bits are over, this is just the reiteration of the K-1/K-3 process of course which we will repeat 2 more times after this which will require us to shell out considerable amounts of cash throughout the process lol

Hi pochemuchka, I'm just gonna ask about the requirements needed for AOS. Me and my husband just got married last June 16,2016 and I dont have a lot of ideas about what are other files needed for applying AOS. I'm a K1 visa holder too just like you. Hope you can help me. Thank you.

Hi Shaii

I actually made a video of all of the things that I put in my husbands AOS package, but my camera died at the end of it so I just need to explain the last things that I have in the package, I'll try to upload it to youtube this week so that you can see exactly. It's really difficult, because I got conflicting answers from different sources as to what you need to include in the packet. Hopefully this will help you out. Di you already start filling out the paperwork?

You can check out the guides on this forum Also, I would suggest checking the oasis website. Each required form usually has specific instructions on how to complete the form. There are also sample completed forms on this website and other websites so you can compare.

We mailed our package USPS June 7th was received June 9th. Checks hit our account June 17th. No text message or e-mail saying they received our package. Still no NOA.

I got text messages and email the same day the check was cashed. There were about 4 or 5 back to back text messages sent to my wife's phone.
