  1. I thought about that... whether to start this thread or not since there was another thread in the K1/K3 forum. Ultimately, I thought since these are in different forums, I should start this thread, mainly to communicate with people who have submitted AOS while on work/student/tourist visa. I am fine if the mods decide to merge them. But I prefer to have separate thread since they are in different sub-forums. There are probably members who visit this forum thread and not the K1/K3. I plan to participate in the other thread anyway.
  2. Thought I will update my timeline 9/8/2020 - Application sent to USCIS Chicago lockbox using UPS 9/11/2020 - Application received by USCIS 9/18/2020 - Checks cashed by USCIS 9/21/2020 - Received 4 text messages from USCIS with the 4 receipt numbers. The receipt numbers starts with MSC. 9/26/2020 - Received 4 I-797s corresponding to the NOAs. PD is 9/11/2020.
  3. Check cashing is taking anywhere between 7-14 days. Email notification another 7-10 days, and postal mail receipt another 7-10 days.
  4. The tests that I did were Quantiferon Gold for TB, RPR test for syphilis, and a test for gonorrhea (don't remember the name). Some civil surgeons allow you to get the tests done elsewhere and bring the results, while others insist that you get the test done in house, or through labs recommended by them. So I suggest you pick your civil surgeon first, and then see what they suggest. I would not blindly get these tests done without talking to the civil surgeon.
  5. From what I have read elsewhere (link), those fees will not be waived any more. That is what is going to make AOS more expensive.
  6. Based on the new guidelines USCIS will issue I-944 related RFEs for petitions filled during the time that form was on hold.
  7. Yes you ship it to Chicago. I believe there application gets scanned in to their system and the scanned version is forwarded. Don't forget to include I-944. It is required now. Good luck.
  8. Now that I-944 is again required, I have a question. I have recently filed for a marriage based AOS. So I am expecting an RFE for the I-944. I do have an approved I-140. But it is from a valid, unrelated employment based petition. I never filed I-485 corresponding to that I-140 as the dates never became current. So, how should I answer this question - tick yes, specify the receipt number, and move on to part 5?
  9. Thought I will update my timeline 9/8/2020 - Application sent to USCIS Chicago lockbox using UPS 9/11/2020 - Application received by USCIS 9/18/2020 - Checks cashed by USCIS 9/21/2020 - Received 4 text messages from USCIS with the 4 receipt numbers. The receipt numbers starts with MSC.
  10. Looks good. I also included G1145 with the I-765 and the I-131. Also, make sure you wrote your name and A# (if any) at the back of the photos. Good luck.
  11. You did the right thing. You are not supposed to submit I-944 right now. I see your USCIS field office is in FL too (mine is Jax). I filed earlier this month and I am hoping the FL USCIS field offices are not terribly swamped like some of the other field offices are.
  12. Thought I will update this thread: 9/8/2020 - Application sent to USCIS Chicago lockbox using UPS 9/11/2020 - Application received by USCIS 9/18/2020 - Checks cashed by USCIS I had sent two separate personal checks, one for I130 ($535) and one for I485($1225)
  13. Thought I will update my timeline 9/8/2020 - Application sent to USCIS Chicago lockbox using UPS 9/11/2020 - Application received by USCIS 9/18/2020 - Checks cashed by USCIS
  14. If you don't mind me asking, when did USCIS received your package?
