AOS Interview based on marriage, I20s?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have an AOS interview coming up very soon, and I have a question.


I was on F1 for a total of 5 years, and I renewed my I-20 a couple of times. After graduation, I got a job and I have been working with STEM OPT, and I have a US spouse, with whom I am attending the interview.

Now I have this I-797 for the interview, and it says "All immigration-related documentation ever issued to you, including any EAD and any authorization for Advance Parole)"


My question is, do I need to take with me all of the previous I-20s? I don't even know if I have the very first one like from 4-5 years ago. I do have my latest I-20 (original) which has the OPT recommendation. 

I mean, do they even really need those old I-20s which seem very unrelated to my AOS case? If some are missing, could it lead to a denial?

Take what you have. You can’t take what you don’t have. Chances are they won’t wanna see anything apart from what you mailed with the original packet but gather as much as you have. If it turns out there is something missing and they really need it, they will give you a chance to get that documentation to the them after the interview.
