Upcoming K1 AOS Interview checklist

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We have the interview for K1 AOS coming up in a couple of weeks. I think we gathered everything that might be needed (and more...and extra), based on the interview notice, but I'm hoping I can get another pair of eyes to check over it:


Here is what has been gathered:
- I-485 Interview Notice

- Government ID (immigrant's passport), along with SSN card just in case they want it

- Form I-693 (not required, but good to have a copy in case they mess something up or something)

- Form I-864 (I already submitted one and we more than qualified, but my income went up since then so I figure it's good to have an updated one handy)

  - Various I-864 supporting documents including taxes information, pay stubs and Letter from Employment, bank balances

- Documents Establishing Eligibility for Lawful Permanent Residence

  - K1 visa

  - Entry stamp for K1 visa

  - I-94 printout from USCIS

  - Marriage Certificate

- Previously Issued Immigration Documents

  - EAD + AP Combo Card

  - Documentation from RFIE

  - Approved I-129F copy

  - All I-797 and I-797C notices from I-485, I-765, I-131, I-129F

  - Copies of Submitted AOS documentation: I-485, I-765, I-131, I-864

- Travel Documents used to Enter U.S. (same as Eligibility for LPR Documents)

  - Passport 

  - K1 visa

  - Passport stamp for K1 visa

  - I-94

- Immigrant's Birth Certificate + Translation

- Petitioner's Evidence of U.S. Citizenship

  - U.S. Citizen's Birth Certificate

  - Copy of U.S. Citizen's Passport Biographical Page

- Marriage Certificate (already mentioned in Eligibility for LPR Documents)

- Supporting Evidence of Relationship

  - Join Bank Account Statement(s)

  - Joint Health Insurance

  - Life Insurance Beneficiary

  - 401k Beneficiary

  - Wedding photos

  - Vacation photos + receipt

  - Various other photos of our life this year

- Copies / Originals of Documents submitted with I-485 (various stuff here)

 

No children, divorces, arrests, etc., so nothing in there for that.

I've been digging up documents I didn't even know I had 😆

Make good color laser copies of all of your important valuable documents. You know the ones, that would be very hard to replace. Place the originals in plastic presentation page protector sleeves. At the interview should they want to view a document, show them the original in the page protectors, and ask them to compare the original to the copy. Give them the copy, you still retaining the original.

 

Whatever you don't dig up now, save it all up for the ROC in a couple of years. Actually I usually recommend that after folks successfully get their 2-yr GC, and enjoy a respite from USCIS, get a shoe box of a file cabinet drawer. Over the 18 month hiatus, put any and all "marriage bonafides" (USCIS-speak, certainly not mine) evidence you come across.....leases, deeds, wills, trusts, DPOAs, joint about statements (basically anything joint), holiday cards, etc. You can sort through your accumulated evidence when you are starting to consider going to your ROC.

 

Good luck on your immigration journey.

I think it looks good! 

 

Both Drivers licenses if you have (that’s the only thing I couldn’t find on your list that they asked us, but I’m sure not everyone has it) they use it to check address I think. If you have those take a copy of those with you too.

 

Good luck!

Sheet protectors was the first thing I did 😃. Copies is next, I just need to find time to copy through the whole stack.

I'll have my license since I'm driving in (sort of). Unfortunately the DMV wouldn't give her a license/permit until she got her EAD/AP/Green Card, so we won't have that. But the joint banks statements have both our names and the address on it, so that should be helpful.
