  1. A major factor is the local field office processing times. For example, my father's AOS (I'm his I-130 petitioner for his immediate relative GC) is pending for 16 months. But we live in the slow San Francisco field office area. Below are his timelines: AOS Date Filed: 2017-12-06 NOA Date: 2017-12-08 Bio. Appt.: 2017-12-26 RFE(s): 2018-01-05 "Case ready to be scheduled for interview" since 2018-06-22. Nothing new since. EAD/AP Combo Card #1 Approved Date: 2018-06-05 Date Card Received: 2018-06-13 Since the card expires on 2019-06-05 he has filed a renewal. Only the EAD part was auto-extended for 180 days after that date. EAD/AP Combo Card #2 NOA Date: 2019-01-02 Still pending. Both I-765 and I-131 say "Case was received" And he also frequently gets those same annoying "We are still reviewing your case and there are no updates at this time" emails.
  2. Depending on the field office processing times it might be better not to do the medical now. @janinemd, you can do the medical when you receive the interview notice: https://www.uscis.gov/policymanual/HTML/PolicyManual-Volume8-PartB-Chapter4.html See table titled "Form I-693 Submitted to USCIS On or After November 1, 2018" and the info right below it.
  3. Although the K-3 is still mentioned in current US law, it's basically obsolete. Below are the number of K-3 visas issued worldwide per fiscal year; https://travel.state.gov/content/dam/visas/Statistics/AnnualReports/FY2018AnnualReport/FY18AnnualReport - TableXVIB.pdf: 2018: 6 visas 2017: 15 visas 2016: 102 visas 2015: 182 visas 2014: 392 visas 2013: 144 visas Probably near 0 K-3 visas will be issued in fiscal year 2019.
  4. What's wrong with marrying in the US and leaving right after? If a B-1/B-2 applicant informs the Consular Officer (CO) about this and has convincing supporting evidence of their commitments that compel them to leave the US, then the CO will most likely approve the B-1/B-2.
  5. It's neither unethical nor illegal to have preconceived intent at POE to marry with a B-1/B-2 (or VWP); some people even legally start the CR-1 process this way by leaving the US after marriage: It always is illegal to have preconceived intent at POE to either AOS or overstay with a B-1/B-2 (or VWP).
  6. Read right below that table: You'll submit it at the interview. The civil surgeon signed it after AOS was filed, thus it's valid until March 2020.

    Where do you live? Where did you marry? Here is the embassy and consulate map:
  8. Yes, use married name. SSA lady is correct. Wait until she receives either the EAD or GC with married name. No. She can apply with the maiden name now. When she gets either the EAD or GC and SSA has the married name she can change the license to married name.
  9. It should work. Below is a thread about being able to use G-1450 in London: Maybe they were able to input an UK address with a PDF editor: https://www.pdfescape.com/open/
  10. This link has some info: https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/tax/international-non-residents/individuals-leaving-entering-canada-non-residents/leaving-canada-emigrants.html#dyft
  11. ^^This 100% Also, granny can leave now and use the visa-free travel perk (about 20 additional countries depending on her passport) if she wants and has access to the finances, and then try to return for the graduation: https://www.visatraveler.com/blog/travel-20-countries-visa-free-with-us-visa/
  12. The tourist visa (or VWP) could be revoked. Thus, no future tourist visits. Better play it safe.
  13. ^^This. If she is capable of leaving the country* she should leave. OP, why was the I-539 filed? *Note: if she doesn't live in either Mexico, Canada, or the Caribbean she should leave the whole continent of North America. Better safe than sorry.
  14. Not to be pedantic but it seems posters in this thread are mixing up the I-131 and I-765 instructions: In theory, an EAD can be approved for a K-1 that expires when the I-94 expires. One must be an AOS applicant, TPS beneficiary, etc to apply for AP. Even in theory, an AP cannot be approved for a K-1 that expires when the I-94 expires. To put it bluntly, @Loren Y, to tell someone they can, even if in theory, is wrong information.
  15. The I-9 form says I-551, EAD, etc. I-551 = Green Card Document. Your CBP endosered immigrant visa is an I-551 document; https://www.uscis.gov/i-9-central/temporary-i-551-stamps-and-mrivs: You can work, travel, etc. right after US entry.
