B2 Visa Holder

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am in dire need of help! I am on tourist visa and my stay in the US expires on Sept 16; Now my boyfriend wants us to get married on Sept 13. Here are my concerns/questions:

a) do I have enough time to file for the necessary papers WITHOUT getting deported?

b) do i need to take a medical examination and submit the results together with AOS forms in my USCIS packet? Im asking coz i dont think I have the time; it takes 2 weeks for the results to be in

c) my bf and I dont have joint bank accounts nor im not in his bills so I will be submitting a 3rd party affidavit to prove ongoing marriage - is there a format for this? and how many 3rd party statements should i submit?

d) a few clarifications the form I-485; Part 2 says: I am applying for an adjustment becoz a) an immigrant petition giving me an immediately available immigrant visa number b) my spouse applied for AOS or was granted lawful permanent residence in an immigrant visa category that allows derivative status for spouses. WHO AM I here? Which category do i belong?

I am paranoid now coz I feel like I dont have enough time so your expert opinion will really help me.

Thank you!

a) Yes. Once you are married and have filed AOS, you are ok to stay until that is decided on

b) Not sure. I don't think you need to, but you will get an RFE and it will delay issuance of your EAD/ AP (work and travel permit).

c) No, just have them write one or two short paragraphs about how they know you two, and make sure they are signed, and have contact details. DO submit other evidence- oh how long you have known eachother, phone bills, evidence of having met before etc. Also keep in mind that you will have a chance to submit more evidence at interview, which is several months away. By then you can arrange joint bills, a joint lease, being eachother's next-of-kin at work etc, Will's naming eachohter and so on.

The medical only takes a couple of days; I am not sure where you heard two weeks. In any case there is a new system where you can just bring the completed medical to your interview.

The answer to your question d is A.

AOS for my husband
8/17/10: INTERVIEW DAY (day 123) APPROVED!!

5/23/12: Sent out package
2/06/13: APPROVED!

Thank you! Just one more question: a form is asking for the place of my last entry in the US; is this referring to the last port of entry that i got in when I got here? I was checked by immigration officers in Detroit but my final destination was Chicago. So which is which?
