Filed: F-1 Visa Country: India

Hi, I recently sent in my AOS package just a few days ago. My husband is in the military and I was wondering if any there are any military spouses out there who recently filed for AOS? Just curious about how long it will take and if it is faster for military spouses. Thank you :)

Not faster. Similar timeframe as other AOS filers for your local Field Office. But when I-485 is approved, if he's still in the military and he is stationed abroad you could qualify for expedited naturalization. "Be authorized to accompany your spouse abroad by your spouse’s official orders" "Declare in good faith upon naturalization an intent to reside abroad with your U.S. citizen spouse and to reside in the U.S. immediately upon your spouse’s termination of service abroad" https://www.uscis.gov/military/citizenship-for-military-family-members If you get 2-year GC you would completely bypass Removal of Conditions process: "Spouses of U.S. citizens who are regularly stationed abroad under qualifying employment may be eligible to file for naturalization immediately after obtaining LPR status in the United States. Such spouses are not required to have any prior period of residence or specified period of physical presence within the United States in order to qualify for naturalization." https://www.uscis.gov/policy-manual/volume-12-part-g-chapter-4 For example:
