Joining this thread because I'm working on getting everything together now and my goal is to send it off by June 18th (2 weeks from today). 

 

@Ethan & Shannon Did you send copies of the certified marriage certificate, or include originals?

Welcome and good luck :D I sent an original with the I-485 to be extra safe (I ended up ordering 6 of them so I can just hand them out to immigration lol!) and then plain not-certified copies with the rest of the forms. I'm hoping my not-certified copies will be fine.

 

I don't know about Alabama, but it only costed $4 per extra marriage certificate ordered in Illinois.

Note to all June AOS filers, as another June filer found earlier:

 

A new i-131 edition has been uploaded to the USCIS website, however, if you have already filled in the old version and are going to submit soon you still can with the old version. Here is a quote from the website:

 

Quote

04/24/19. Starting 07/12/19, we will only accept the 04/24/19 edition. Until then, you can use the 12/23/16 edition. You can find the edition date at the bottom of the page on the form and instructions.

 

https://www.uscis.gov/i-131

Turns out that extra copies of the certified marriage certificate here in Alabama are just $3 so I'm ordering a few extras today. Thanks for the tip!

Yep, that is what my wife did, and it is pretty much in unison with the VJ K1 Visa Flowchart: https://www.visajourney.com/content/k1flow/


Completed: K1/K2 (271 days) - AOS/EAD/AP (134 days) - ROC (279 days)

My husband *tried* to apply for his SSN on the 4th business day after arriving in the U.S. but we were told it was "too soon" and to come back in a week. I think they were experiencing some issues with their system and just didn't want to tell us, based on some whispering and comments I heard between co-workers. 

 

We're going back this Friday so hopefully it will go smoothly this time... 🙄

My husband *tried* to apply for his SSN on the 4th business day after arriving in the U.S. but we were told it was "too soon" and to come back in a week. I think they were experiencing some issues with their system and just didn't want to tell us, based on some whispering and comments I heard between co-workers. 

 

We're going back this Friday so hopefully it will go smoothly this time... 🙄

It could be! Sometimes I feel like it's just dumb luck lol My husband went on exactly the 10th day here and  they still couldn't locate him in the system. They accepted his paperwork but it still took 4 weeks for him to receive the actual card.
