We are gonna file next year. We just recently married 2 months ago. Is it too soon for me to file an AOS? Should I wait?

No, file with what you have. Keep collecting evidence to bring to the interview. There is no benefit in waiting. You want to get the AOS filed as soon as you can.

That is my Husband social media post about our relationship timeline from the year 2015. I screenshot all the dates and years from 2015 to 2019.

 

Thank you. I am on H1b visa my employer wants to sponsor me for green card but my husband told me it is better if He is the sponsor.

Hmm, how long have you two been married? Only reason is if by the time your green card is approved, and you will be more than 2 years married then you get a 10 years green card. No removing of conditions, less costs and less headache.

 

I actually was in the sort of the same boat. My employer started the sponsoring process and then I got married to my wife who was already a US citizen. I went with the employment route because I wanted a straight 10 years green card plus employer paid all the costs for immigration. However, you gotta evaluate your employer as well to see what the chances of successfully filing an EB petiiton (Size, do they have a lawyer, how many of these immigration cases have they done, ... ) My employer was a very large public state-owned Univeristy, 15,000 employees, 40,000 students . They have an entire imigration department with lawyer and paralegals dedicated to filing immigration petitions for their employees and visas for foreign professors, seasonal professors, guest lecturers from overseas, .... and they've done this year in and year out so I was very comfortable. Otherwise, I'd go with the spousal route. Just my 2 cents.

We just recently married like 2 months ago. My employer is a big hospital so I guess thats good. They are sponsoring one of my co worker too. My employer processed it 2016 and 2019 she just got her EAD no greencard yet. So I thought spousal route would be a much faster process maybe?

Thread is moved from the K-3 Process forum to the "AOS from WS&T Visas" main forum -- OP would be adjusting status.


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

Draft wills, general and healthcare powers of attorney, HIPAA releases, and similar documents.

These are excellent proof for AOS and for Removing Conditions later.

They're even more valuable to have in "life."
