Be sure to double check for the current fees as fees do sometimes increase, so please check. Additionally check the forms as listed above i.e., current version and or edition date, there has been changes to various forms since February 24, 2020. Consider sending tax transcripts instead of the 1040, and W2's. Also consider preparing a cover letter for each form in addition to the main cover letter.

 

Make sure you send long form birth certificates and not the short form. IMPORTANT: Form I-944 has quite a bit of supporting documents that go with it depending on your situation, be sure to read the instructions for this form carefully. Many people have gotten a RFE for this form so be sure to pay CLOSE attention when filing it out. Hope this helps in your preparation of your AOS. When in doubt ask questions.

Just sent ours out today! Thank you for creating the thread. 

No problem at all! I’m just waiting for a couple more docs and I’ll hopefully finally be ready to send mine out in the next week or so too!

 

I’m hoping everything runs smoothly on your AOS journey!

Awesome news! I was hoping to have my stuff ready by the first (in celebration of Canada day) but unfortunately I didn’t get everything I needed in time. I’m still waiting for my long form birth certificate, once I have that I will be able to finally send my package off too! 
 

Hopefully you hear back with some good news soon!

 

beat of luck on this crazy journey 😊

With all of this COVID-19 stuff plus the immigration restrictions and added scrutiny, a lot of people are probably thinking twice about making the move to the US. 
 

I do hope we get some more people in our group to share some experiences though 😅

 

And yes, the prep is the most time consuming thing I’ve EVER done. I’m just hoping that after I get my last doc it’ll be over.

Just sent out my AOS package today!

 

Wish I saw this thread earlier, but is the entry stamp on passport absolutely necessary if you have your I-94, passport ID page, and visa?

I would presume that the i94 and your passport page is the most necessary thing? (That’s what I included). Someone else could correct me if I’m wrong

That's good to hear. The instructions and Boundless.com's guide didn't mention the admission stamp so I hope we're both okay.

I haven’t sent my package yet but I photocopied both the visa and the i94, I’m not sure if it’s mandatory, but most people and threads that I read said to include it so I did

Yeah and I didn’t see it on the USCIS documents or cover letters. We shall see!

Right, it doesn’t do any harm to include it!

Our AOS package was delivered to USCIS Chicago Lockbox on 7/2/2020. With the upcoming furloughs and pandemic, have no idea how long AOS will take, or even get my EAD and AP.

Yeah, really worried about the EAD processing. I don't mind waiting for my green card but I need my EAD lol.
