Hi everyone!

I entered to U.S on March 2nd with K1 visa
My fiancé and I will get married soon but I have a question.

I know we need to get married within 90 days of my arrival. But, do we need to apply for the green card within 90 days? 
There are so many documents for green card and I don’t know if we can apply till May 30.(it’s my 90th days of arrival). We need to gather so many documents till that time. We will do our best to apply before that day but what if we apply on 100 or 120th day of my arrival? Would i be out of status with my k1 visa? Is there any rules about applying for the green card within 90 days of arrival with k1 visa?

You will be out of status, and no one here would recommend doing it that way.  Evaluating your tolerance to the risk of that is a personal choice.

 

Personally, we did everything we could to get our AOS paperwork in order, and sent it out the same day the marriage certificate was available.

It took me 4 hrs. to put the application together,  what do you believe you need to gather?

You are getting advice to file for green card after 90 days. This is incorrect. In fact you need to file so that package arrives at USCIS before the 90 days. You also need to file with tracking. I recommend USPS priority mail. 

 

This is why you are getting incorrect advice:

 

Filing after the 90 days opens a window where an unlucky encounter with law enforcement can lead to a stay in an ICE prison cell. Don't do that.

Once you get  married, and apply for AOS, and get your NOA1 you will be fine. Make sure to also apply for EA and early parole if you need to travel.

 

Keep us updated and good luck!
