Congrats. You now have 90 days to marry. Can be tomorrow, or 60 days from now, doesn't matter, just has to be within the 90 days. After that you can file for AOS. Literally just follow the guide here : http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1k3aos

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1aos

 

You will need to get a SSN also, I did not have to deal with this part as my husband had an SSN from previous internships so others can assist you in that area.

 

Process right now looks like work permit and advanced parole anywhere from 3-4 months, maybe longer. For full adjustment and green card anywhere from 12-14 months most likely.

" Have you tried the search tool? K1 isnt an easy process and a LOT of reading is required to avoid problems (RFEs) etc, if you dont like reading, be prepared to spend WAY more time and couple more $$$ with an lawyer "
