  1. Yes! Received it Monday (less than a week after the interview)! Sorry, I should have updated!
  2. Green card has been picked up by USPS! Guessing it'll be here early next week!
  3. Awesome! Congrats! My wife's status on the I-485 receipt number is still set to "case is approved" (granted it's been less than 48 hours since we concluded the interview). Eagerly waiting for the "new card is being produced" update as well. Hopefully sometime next week!
  4. Thank you! Hopefully Round 2 in 2 years will be very easy! Our interviewer was very friendly, I was comfortable right off the bat.
  5. We had our interview this afternoon. Approved on the spot, and received the email about it just an hour later!!!! They only asked us very basic questions - e.g., how did you meet, what did you do on your first date, where do you live, where do both of you work, what's your wife's birthday?
  6. Thanks! Sounds like there isn't any "right" answer. Just make it presentable and easy for them to find items.
  7. Probably a silly question, but I'm compiling additional evidence of a bona fide marriage for the interview, and I was curious, how should I organize the (copies of) documents/evidence for the interviewer? Stapled (or is that frowned upon since you weren't supposed to staple the original AOS application)? Binder clip on top with sticky flags indicating each new piece of evidence? Something else?
  8. EAD/AP Combo card came in the mail today! 1.5 weeks til interview - just a little bit more prep to produce all the supporting evidence. Another quick question about the interview notice: It says to provide "All documentation establishing your eligibility for Lawful Permanent Resident status." This seems kind of redundant, no? If I'm bringing a copy of our entire AOS package, along with originals, that seems to be what they want, right?
  9. We booked flights to visit her family this summer. Perhaps slightly premature since we haven't received her EAD/AP combo card yet, but it seems pretty low risk since the card is supposed to come Friday, and the letter that came in the mail earlier this week explicitly said it would come with a stamp authorizing travel.
  10. Starting to compile documents for the interview.... Our interview letter states to bring "A completed Affidavit of Support (I-864) with all required evidence, including the following, for each of your sponsors (unless already submitted) Fed Income Tax Returns and W2s, or certified IRS printouts for the most recent tax year; Letters from each current employer, verifying current rate of pay and average weekly hours, and pay stubs for the past 2 months; evidence of your sponsor's US Citizenship When I filled out the I-864, I only submitted the federal income tax returns and W2s (for the past 3 years). IIRC, the letters from current employer were optional in the instructions (They read: "A copy of your individual federal income tax return, including W2s for the most recent year, or a statement and/or evidence describing why you were not required to file. Also include a copy of each and every Form 1099, Schedule, and any other evidence of reported income. You may submit this information for the most recent three tax years, pay stubs from the most recent six months, and/or a letter from your employer if you believe any of these items will help you qualify.). I'm assuming since we already submitted the I-864 with the I-485 packet with the required documentation, there's nothing else to do but to bring a copy of the entire packet?
  11. The green card supersedes the EAD/AP. An EAD/AP are just there to serve as a bridge while you're adjusting status to become a permanent resident.
  12. Congrats! I just got a notice last night that my wife's EAD/AP combo card was sent via mail!
  13. Try to get creative with elements of bona fide relationship / marriage. We don't have a joint lease either (even though she lives with me), so we're looking at things like me learning her native language, texting data/printouts, authorized user on credit cards, beneficiary on retirement accounts, emergency contacts, photos with family, etc.
  14. ^ I've been posting in the other thread since it's more active (https://www.visajourney.com/forums/forum/131-adjustment-of-status-case-filing-and-progress-reports/), but my wife's EAD/AP card was approved on May 9, and our interview is in 2 weeks.
  15. Just received the official letters approving the EAD/AP combo card. Can't wait to receive it in the mail (card ordered as of May 9) .... we want to be able to visit her family this summer (on the chance that her green card isn't approved right away), and I'm sure flight prices will go up the longer we wait.
