I-693 for K1 Visa Holder?

Hi there, my fiance entered the US on February 29 and handed over his sealed medical exam results to the CPC officers upon arrival. We got married and now I'm completing his AOS I-485. According to the USCIS website, it says he doesn't need to do a medical exam again. But then I read that we have to include an I-693 as part of the AOS process. The doctor in his home country didn't give him anything other than the sealed envelope for CPC. So can we just skip including the I-693 and note somewhere in our cover letter that he submitted his medical exam/vaccination documents upon arrival?

Thanks!

I am filling out the I-485 for my new husband. For Section 2, 1a, do I choose Immediate Relative or Person admitted to the US as fiance? We got married 3 weeks ago, so he is my husband now, but he was admitted via a K1.

Thanks!

It s been almost three weeks since I arrived in the US and I still haven t received my SSN card in the mail. I read old threads were they recommend going to the SSA office but now they re closed. Now I doubt I will receive it anytime soon. I really need it so I can renew my dependent ID card and do some urgent things I need to do on base. Does anyone know if if there s anything else I can do to get my SSN? if not, does anyone know if they would they let me use the expired (and temporary) dependent card? :(

Hi everyone,

I've been quiet and hunkered down for a while, but this COVID19 pandemic is beginning to make me and my fiance very nervous. I figured there aren't a lot of answers out there right now, things change day to day. Here in the States it's escalated rather rapidly with all of the shut downs. My fiance and I were beginning to have a lot of hope and get excited just a few weeks ago...I've gotten two emails (once as recent as 3/15) from VJ regarding my timeline giving us an estimate for our NOA2 within the first week of April. Also, he has been in contact on another forum here with a woman from his country (Chile) who is an early November filer and she received her NOA2 on day 122 March 6th...we have seemed to be a month behind her and her fiance during our process so far and with the two emails I got it seemed hopeful. But now we are so anxious. It seems like all the shut downs will delay interviews, and those were already seeming to move so slowly that now I'll be surprised they don't get immensely back logged at the Consulate the longer they are closed. I have not seen my fiance since October 11th and we can't believe it could be another 3-5 months minimum until we see each other again. It was already difficult for me to arrange to visit him and now there's no chance...we are devastated and I am not doing well in the middle of all of this...

Hello! I'm getting overwhelmed here for tax season.

  • My husband came in June 2019
  • We married in September 2019
  • No income in 2019 to file for him.

So we're trying to do the ITIN number Application (W7). I believe his passport is the only documentation we need as it has his physical copies of his visa. His adjustment of status, work, and travel permits are all pending right now with an expected reply in June apparently. So right now I don't have much else besides the Visa to provide, but the visa has technically expired.

  • Do I file the W7 first, then use the ITIN info on a regular tax return?
  • Where do I go to get the certified copies?
  • Do I only need the passport to be copied?

Thank you all! I'm getting a bit overwhelmed here. I didn't even know about an ITIN until a few days ago ?
