What if i don't get the recorded marriage certificate back before the 90 day K1 fiance visa expires?
jaysaldi posted a topic in Adjustment of Status (Green Card) from K1 and K3 Family Based Visas,
What should I do?
1. File for AoS before the 90 days expires with the photo of documentation he sends me and possibly/probably get an RFE?
2. Wait beyond the ninety days and file for AoS?
3. File for AoS within and then supplement that filing in a few weeks with a nice copy of the recorded marriage certificate?
Also, after we file for AoS, what paperwork should my fiancee carry with her to prove she is in the country legally?

The Visa interview is the most important part of the whole visa process. A successful interview has a positive impact on your visa being granted. Following are some of the most common mistakes people make during their interview.
1. Not Prepared Well for the Interview
Being prepared for interview can better equip you for the interview. Prepare beforehand for commonly asked questions and their appropriate answer will be helpful prior to the interview.
2. Not Providing Complete and Truthful Information
It is very important that you provide complete and truthful information. Any incomplete/false information can lead to unnecessary delay(s). False information can have severe impact on your future ability to apply for US visa. It may also cause you lot of frustration and legal actions against you. You could be band for life from receiving a US visa. THINK before answering.

1. The household will be my FIANCEE'S parents - who live there with her. So the FULL TIME occupation is THREE (3) - HOWEVER , she has 3 children (9-11-14) who are there 3 days a week. What is the correct way of stating the household occupancy? - I believe she is NOT the MAIN CAREGIVER.
2. If a JOINT SPONSOR is required - where on the form i-134 do you add this information - so it is taken into account? Just use the SPARE PAGES at the back?
3. FINALLY - Question 38 (I DO/DO NOT Intend to make specific contributions etc...) - I am not sure what to put here - as I will be working (intend to in IT) and want to take nothing from her. I expect to find work fairly swiftly.

Now we're planning our next steps and want to make sure we're doing things right. Here's what we're planning:
-Sat Oct 5: entry into US from Canada
-Mon Oct 7: apply for marriage license
-Thurs Oct 10: pick up marriage license
-Sat Oct 12: wedding!
-Mon Oct 14: submit AOS paperwork
-Fri Oct 18: apply for SSN
-Sat Oct 19: honeymoon!
Entry, license, wedding, and honeymoon are fixed dates at this point. We'd like to get paperwork moving asap.
So what about our timing of SSN and AOS paperwork? I remember reading we should wait 2 weeks from after fiancee enters US.. correct? Or should we try earlier?
And for AOS, some paperwork asks for SSN if we have it. By the time it's mailed, technically "yes." Should we send AOS paperwork sooner than later to get things moving, or wait until we have SSN?
Thanks for any guidance on this!

Our concern is that what if my fiancee fails the interview and the i-129f was completely thrown out AFTER our marriage celebration? We plan to file for cr1 if that happens but would it look bad for our case because we had a marriage celebration while still going through the k-1 process or would it not be a problem as long as we don't file the marriage license until my fiancee is in the US?
When filing the i-129f, we signed the promise that my fiancee and I would get married within 90 days upon arriving in the US.

I am not going to get into a debate on pro or anti-vaccinations - I am just wondering if anyone has successfuly requested to not have vaccinations for religious reasons. I heard of one person getting a waiver, but that was well over a decade ago. Is this still a possibility? Did you do this successfully? If yes, how? What is the process?
Any advice or feedback is appreciated.
