  1. I found it super difficult too! We are on the East coast and it’s taken me months! Endless online applications, even spending $100 printing and posting my resume old skill to try and stand out. Quite frankly applying for jobs was a full time job. The daily effort and perseverance finally paid off and I landed a coveted state job this week, with state benefits. keep on trucking!
  2. Only people who have been through this process truly understand the importance of being organised and methodical! Good luck!
  3. To be honest it was the weirdest interview ever! Not difficult at all. No need to be nervous at all. Take copies of all original documents and a few loose pictures for them to keep.
  4. Hi Everyone, This website and the people who are on it and moderate it have made the immigration process so much less intimidating. Thanks to the information I have learnt on this site I managed to secure my SSN and driving licence waaaaaay before my EAD, making the transition into a new country so much easier. All without the help of the ludicriously priced lawyers. It would take me forever to thank everyone who helped me along the way . . . . you know who you are. Today I collected my green card from our mailbox! Here is my full timeline!

Thank you all! Let's catch up in 18 months when we have to apply to remove the conditions 😂 #nomoreucscisfor18months
  5. That’s great advice. Thank you so much. I am preparing a photo book on Shutterfly with all our pictures and adventures in 🙂
  6. For those fortunate enough to have been scheduled an I485 interview at their local office, how long did the letter containing the date take to arrive? My interview was scheduled on Tuesday 15th October, so tomorrow it will be a week. Still no letter and I really want to know the date and start preparing.
  7. For those who have had their interview at their local field office . . . . I have a couple of questions. 1) Medical Is my medical still valid? I had my K1 medical in London in January 2019. I.m waiting on my interview date, but it is likely to be November / early December. 2) Medical Insurance I do not currently have medical insurance. My wife is self employed and has only catastropic coverage herself (at $400 a month - God bless the NHS!). I am however at second interview stage myself for several jobs which would include medical coverage for us both, but I will not have in time for the interview. Is medical coverage essential for the interview? We have other legal and financial information with both our names on such as rental agreement, bank accounts and car insurance policy. 3) Full checklist Can someone please share the full documentation check list for the interview so I can start getting prepared? Thanks in advance.
  8. Yay! Let's hope so. Remember I expedited my EAD so perhaps your interview date is just round the corner. Fingers crossed for you.
  9. You’re not going to believe this but I’ve just had an email this evening saying my interview has been scheduled! Wow, just wow! Now waiting on notification in the mail.
  10. If this is for your K1 application, they only need to know that you meet the criteria such as you have met in person. So yes, it sounds like overkill, but handy to keep for the interviews in the future.
  11. Can someone point me in the direction of an up to date AOS interview checklist? Trying to get all organised. Thanks.
  12. 100% For me the local congressmen or senator were only useful once you’ve started the process. Calling USCIS to request expedite, then calling them every week to enquire about it. My congressman finally called USCIS after 3 - 4 weeks of waiting and I was approved the very next day!
  13. I expedited with letter of job offer. It was quickly approved and card received.
