    flfreddy got a reaction from werdna in I-485 Approved - Los Angeles   
    The interview date was 2/8/21, 
    EAD AP date was 7/15/2020
     
    The experience was, we arrived at 300 N Los Angeles at 230pm for a 245pm appt.   Went thru ground floor xray, go to 8th floor, go to the check in window, take temperature and wait to be called.     Was called finally at 350pm after a 1 hr sit and do nothing.
     
    Nice younger gentleman greeted us at DOOR 2, walked about 20m to his cubicle office.  He was nice enough to apologise for the wait due to more difficult cases.
    Asked for marriage cert, Passports and whether we have anything else for him.
    Handed 1040, House grant deed, HOA, Bk Statement, photos, Insurance docs and affidavit from colleague.
     
    Asked him whether he needs any more medical updates, he said if you have any .. please.   Handed over Additional Vaccination record from USCIS doctor in sealed envelope. this is the I-693 part 5-7 and 10 for vaccinations part only.  We did this in abundance of caution in case USCIS needed it.
     
    He appeared to be in a rush, checking off what we handed him, then quickly asked like 20 Are you terrorist, member of ... traffic human etc... Mostly NO answer type of questions.
     
    THEN he said.. that was easy... I cant approve you right now, as I have to do background check and verify the K1 file is consistent with the 485 file.
     
    Again rushing.. he said well probably you will hear something today....  and thank you for coming...
     
    wham bam.. in and out in like 15mins.
     
    By the evening at around dinner time, we received the approved email from USCIS..... now awaiting physical card.
     
    what a K1 to 485 journey.
     
    5/2019 to 2/2021
     
    Good luck to all of you.... 8-)

    hang in there, dont give up, rework the strategy.. get a job with income, ANY JOB so long as you exceed poverty threshold by 125%.

    We did a walk in like 5 days prior to our appt.  We went to 3 ASC that morning at 8am, 830am and finally 930am we walked through.
     
    Different ASC have different guards who make a judgement call (some are just nasty others are so nice)
     
    We went to Gardena in LA near LAX.  Failed at DTLA and La Brea ASC

    flfreddy got a reaction from Mike E in Is 12 days before end of K1 visa enough time to get married & send of AOS?   
    All you need is to get the I-797 proving you applied for I-485 to be in status.   Before you received that paper and after your I-94 expired, you are pretty much OUT OF STATUS and any cop even at a traffic light can detain you if they see you are OOS.   That is on top of any other inconvenience needing a marriage cert like health insurance or SSN or beneficiary reporting for insurance etc.

    You were on a F-1, didnt go to school, OUT OF STATUS for a year I think.   You are not in a normal I-485 adjustment situation.   May want an attorney if you can afford it.
