    Where are you right now?  Not in Germany with him?  I think as soon as you get yr GC in April, then get yourself on his Military orders (if you haven't done so already) and apply for the expedite.  While living with him in Germany while he is in the military counts as the 3 years time, the whole point of the 319(b) is to skip through that phase.  Not sure you qualify based on yr timelime and current location, but it's certainly worth looking into after you get that GC.

    I'm not sure there was a 'reason' but I think you are asking how were we able to expedite..?  My husband was headed to an overseas PCS and I was headed there with him. With the military expedite you skip some steps and have others go more quickly.  I don't think it affected the Adjustment of status phase, but we got to skip the Removal of Conditions phase. You can see on my timeline, we received my greencard in APR 2013 one year into the process after applying for the K1 and I didn't apply for the Citizenship until JAN 2014 (9 months later..  after receiving the GC) and that was because we didn't know he was going too get an overseas assignment until that DEC 2014.  I suppose if that had not happened, we would have waited however many years the rule is from Greencard to citizenship (I'm not aware of a three year requirement, I assume that's the standard?) The timing worked perfectly for us.  I guess it would have been even shorter had we had a summer 2013 PCS instead of a summer 2014 one.  That way, we would have applied for citizenship immediately after receiving the greencard and would have been K1 to citizenship in roughly 15-16 months.

    Miew-Miew got a reaction from riuthamus in Military RFE for AOS   
    I will post this in the Military thread as well, but your issue has come up qite a bit (myself included)..
    The LES isn't always enough, many people on here have had to get an employment record while in the Military. Often called a Proof of service letter, or Statement of Service letter and I've seen people get theirs online, or their Finance Office or even their S1s (I got mine there) depending on branch of service.
    I'm having a terrible time today trying to find the old threads, but there are several in the Military section. Do a search for Proof of service, statement of service or my old posts for more details..
    also- my RFE was similar.. because I was deployed, my taxable income showed I was under the poverty line, even if I made considerably more... click on the RFE link in my signature block- there might be some helpful stuff for you, good luck..

    There are many Countries and many US States that allow marriage to a 16 year old, especially with parental consent. Personal opinions aside, I would suggest posters do the research before making claims of it being "ridiculous and wrong, let alone illegal" or that the OP is a pedophilie.
    Just doing a very quick search, I saw Oregon and Nebraska as the only states that do not allow 16 year olds to marry (even with parental/judicial/guardenship consent) Just about every other state allows it with either the Parental consent or a guardiaanship or judge approval. I May have missed a few as it was a quick search, but bottom line is it's perfectlly legal in the majority of our states and around the world.
    The bigger worry is in the application, that they haven't met in the last two years. Sanctimonious opionions really don't matter when there is absolutely nothing wrong with what the OP is trying to do in the legal sense (assuming he will have consent where needed) but the requirements of the K1 are another thing completely.

    Miew-Miew got a reaction from Harsh_77 in Driver license help   
    I was going to start a new thread about this earlier, but found this thread in the search. Realizing the OP received her GC and can now take that into the DMV, here is what happened to us at the DMV in Texas yesterday.
    Miew is on a K1 visa which expires on 26 AUG 2012. Her I-94 staes the same date. we were married in June and filed the I-485 in July.
    When we got her licence yesterday they insisted on making the expiration date as the date her visa expired (which is in 11 days!), even though we were married and already started the AOS procedures. We received the first I-797, but that specifically states it does not = benefits.
    They told her the license would only be good until 26 AUG but that we might as well go through with it because they will scan all the documents in when we do get the new document granting her the residency requirements and it's easier to get a new DL when it has been expired instead of starting from scratch.
    With that being said, what document am I waiting for? The Greencard that comes after the I-485 has been received/approved and there are no RFEs?
