I didn't receive any information from USCIS but they took money from our account today.

I hope it's a good sign :)

Hi my fiancé will be here Feb 3rd (finally...filed feb 2018!) so just trying to get organized. Since you’ve submitted all the paperwork recently, any tips you can share? My fiancé was not able to get a flu shot in Germany (they did not have any). Think that will cause any problems? Thanks!

Hi! I remember you from the Feb 2018 group 😃 
About tips - I think I'll repeat everything what was written here.
1.    Don’t forget to include a correct filling fee ($1140.00 filing fee + $85.00 biometric fee);
2.    Don’t forget to write a cover letter for your petitions and include supporting documents for all of them. I mean, that you have to include supporting documents to Packet for I-765 Application for Employment and Packet for I-131 Application too (like passport style photos – 2, copy of your passport (biographical page); copy of K1 Visa in passport and entry stamp; copy of Electronic Form I-94 etc.) not only supporting docs for I-485.
3.    How to send your passport style photos – you can put them in Ziploc bag and staple it to a sheet of paper. Don’t forget to write your fiancé’s name and A#.
4.    About flu shot – it shouldn’t be a problem if his DS-3025 Vaccination supplement says that it’s completed; if no – he can get the shot in States. 

5. Double check everything before submitting.

Thanks and I remember you too! Hope all is well with you! This is advice is great. I’ve copied and pasted it all to keep for next month. I keep seeing the DS-3025 mentioned. How do you get this? He didn’t receive anything after the medical except a CD.

He should ask a doctor to give him a copy of this form (I asked the doctor during my medical exam and received this form + CD disk).
