  1. Good news: WE GOT APPROVED FOR THE GREENCARD AT THE INTERVIEW! I’ll be posting a more in-depth update at some point. Thanks for everybodies help over the times.
  2. We finally got our interview notice in the mail today (aug 9), our interview is September 9th. Any tips? We are nervous!
  3. We are currently waiting for our AOS interview, adjusting from K1 visa. My wife just went to the California DMV and tried to take her written permit test. They turned her away because the name on the social security card is not the same as the name on her marriage certificate. She didn’t update her name, after our marriage, with the Social Security Administration. I don’t know how we go about doing this. She really needs to drive soon. She has her EAD. If she gets her name updated and has a replacement card ordered, will it still say on that card that she isn’t allowed to work now that she has her EAD? I was told by visajourneyers a while ago to wait until we have the green card to request a new card with her updated name so I’m very confused. Thanks
  4. We’re still waiting. We did the biometrics and got the combo card so far. No interview yet, our status says they’re ready to schedule an interview but haven’t yet. Our local office is San Bernardino, CA
  5. Hey, last thing I had was McDonald’s cheeseburgers and fries! Haha
  6. This is what my timeline says: Package arrived at Lees Summit, MO on 01/21/2021 at 10:23 AM (not sure which time zone, this is what the FedEx tracking website shows). Checked the USCIS website at 10:42 AM on 01/24/2021 and the I-485 case status has updated to: “ Response To USCIS’ Request For Evidence Was Received”. It says they received it on January 22, 2021.
  7. I get USPS informed digest emails and that told me the tracking number.
  8. I don’t have anything to add unfortunately, but good luck! We are a same sex couple using a joint sponsor as well. I hope all goes well for you during your interview. We are still waiting for our appointment to be scheduled!
  9. She’s had a SSN since before the pandemic. She currently counts as a resident alien through the substantial presence test, but when a new year starts, the previous year only counts as a fraction of the days needed to meet the substantial presence test, so she currently qualifies but has been in and out of qualification since her arrival due to this stipulation. Would that change anything? Thank you! Also if she files taxes and states that she has 0 income, would she just receive a check instead of counting it towards taxes owed and would THAT be a public charge/public benefit? Would collecting just this 2021 check be a public benefit because it’s not tax credit? Thanks!
  10. Hey guys, does anyone know if this 1,400 dollar stimulus check is a public charge concern for people like my wife who are waiting for their AOS interview, have their EAD and AP but no green card yet, came on a K1? How about the previous two checks? Is she even eligible? Thanks guys
  11. I’ve updated our timeline, my wife received her combo card in the mail on February 27th 2021 and she received the AP and EAD approval notices (two separate letters) in the mail on either 02/25/2021 or 02/26/2021 (we don’t remember exactly but it was one of the two).
  12. For sure. Thanks much! I think we still have a little bit of time ahead of us before the interview but hopefully it’ll all work out.
  13. We submitted AOS after the K1 expiry and I-94 expiry, and we left it blank, didn’t put N/A or anything. Our I-485 case status is currently “Case is Ready to Be Scheduled For An Interview”.
  14. I’d imagine it wouldn’t change? I’m not sure but it’s just my guess.
