 I guys. Got a little disconnected with VisaJourney, but our journey continues. We have shipped off our AOS on November 3, and I have received confirmation that it was delivered. Now the wait continues. It’s nice to see familiar names, and look forward to following everyone on their adventure for AOS.

We sent it on Friday for USPS and it was confirmed by USPS that it arrived on Monday. We have not received anything from USCIS yet. We hate the waiting with so much on the line.

Hello all! My husband and I are compiling our AoS paper work. He came from Cuba on a K1 and we recently got married. I have some questions, that I have posted elsewhere, and would be most appreciative for your help.

 

Medical

My husband never received the DS-3025 during his medical exam. He has the Cuban vaccination card that his doctor gave him during the medical a few months ago, but never received the US vaccination form. If any one knows Cuba, it is impossible to call the doctor or hospital and have them mail or email us a copy. So now, after some advice from a very helpful VJ member (thank you @Suss&Camm! :) ) it seems our only option is to go to a certified doctor here and ask them to fill out a portion of the I-693. Has anyone gone through this process?

 

I-485 Questions

24. What is your current immigration status? (If it has changed since arrival.)

"K1 Visa Holder," correct? He came on a K1, we married, and now are doing AoS.


Part 3: 1. Have you ever applied for an immigrant visa to obtain permanent resident status at a US Embassy or Consulate Abroad?

Does our K1 visa application count? 


Part 3: Did you write the addresses of old residences and employer in Spanish (or local language) or English, how they would appear in Cuba (local country) or US?


For residences and employment there are two sections - the first two questions ask for most recent, then the next two ask for most recent residences/employment out of US, should we just follow in chronological order? For instance, my husbands current address is in New York, US, and his previous was in Havana, Cuba. Do these need to be listed in the separate sections, or consecutively?

Part 8:  1. Have you ever been a member of, involved in, or in any way associated with any organization, association, fund, foundation, party,  club, society, or similar group in the US or any other location in the world including any military service?

My husband spent 9 months doing the obligatory Cuban military service, in a general position. Would we have to mark YES for this question? And it has implications for the following questions:

 

49. Have you EVER received any type of military, paramilitary, or weapons training?

We are hesitant to answer yes because he truly did the most basic form of general military service. Thoughts?

 

55. Have you EVER served in, been a member of, assisted, or participated in any military unit, paramilitary unit, police unit, self defense unit...etc?

Would we answer yes to this since he was technically in the military?

 

Thank you for reading through this! Obsessing over the details a bit as we want everything to be correct. Any help would be so appreciated!
