Documents to prepare for AOS - Los Angeles Office

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Dear VJ Users -- 

 

I'm scheduled for my AOS interview on 11 December 2017. I know I have more than 4 weeks but I always think better to prepare ahead of time. Can anyone share what does the AOS (K1 to Green Card) notice letter from USCIS said to prepare? I remember the email from US Embassy had a very specific list of documents to prepare for my K1 Interview, does the Notice for my Green Card interview will have a similar list of documents? 

 

Please advise.

 

Best, 

J/G.

I'm not 100% sure but I think I've seen it mentioned here that yes, your interview notice letter will have a list of things to bring.

What I would bring personally is the originals of everything you have submitted so far + any new evidence you have collected since your AOS process started. :)

What do you have so far?

Hi Evie -- 

Yes, I have copies of EVERYTHING I submitted to the USCIS (i.e. I-129F, K-1, AOS, EAD, and AP). I've also collected some documents post of the AOS submission (i.e. banking, living, photos, letters, etc etc.). I'm just curious of what does the actual notice would tell me to prepare. 

THANK YOU.

Hi T_P --

Yes, I read the reviews of USCIS LA office and several users experience posted in the forum. Thank you. Being an Indonesian passport holder, I've undergone SOOO many interviews for different visas for different countries but this AOS interview seems to be the mother of all visa interview (it's no longer a Demogorgon type of situation, this is Shadow Monster type of thing). So I want to come prepared. 

Best,

J/G

 

 

 

 

 

Also, if anyone still able to share what does the notice said it'd be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU.
