  1. 3 of my friends and me did our AOS in Reno and got our green cards in 3-8 months, 2 of them even received RFEs. I wish you the best luck, I really think this field office is overall pretty fast!
  2. Yes, all the forms were in different envelopes. I followed this blog https://www.sweetbeginningusa.com/2019/02/diy-i-485-adjustment-of-status-2019.html?m=1 then FedEx put it all in a bag and sent it
  3. In my interview the questions were: to me: my name my date of birth my address my previous address my current employment status my parents names how many times I’ve been married what’s my marriage date to my husband: his name his current employment status how many times he’s been married to both: if we live with anybody else if we have any other type of document to add to the application with both of our names and the address in them Then he went through the yes/no questions, probably asked me 10 of those. And that’s all! One of my friends got asked how they met and where was the wedding, also some questions about her joint sponsor, but nothing else
  4. Thank you! I didn’t evaluate it, I just sent a copy of the certificate and a copy of what my result meant (it came with the certificate)
  5. Thank you! It was very intuitive honestly, I left blanks sometimes. I’ll leave some examples:
  6. AoS from J1 to marriage based green card is the same as the other AoS from tourist, student and work visas, so you should be able to find most of the information in this website. I did Aos from J1 visa and posted my journey here:
  7. Last update: June 19: sent AoS package. June 22: AoS in Chicago lockbox. (Priority Date) July 13: received NOA letters. July 28: received biometrics appointment letter.

August 19: We are ready to schedule your Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, for an interview. August 21: We scheduled an interview for your Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status. September 25: Interview September 25: We ordered your new card. September 28: Case was approved (I130) September 28: We approved your Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status. September 29: We received a I-797 NOA: Approval Notice in the mail dated 09/25/2020 for I-130 and I-485.

September 30: The Post Office picked up mail containing your new card. October 2: card was delivered to me by The Post Office. and now I have the card on my hand! my husband is joining the navy full time soon so hopefully that'll help our next paperworks (i751 and/or naturalization). officially done for now though.
  8. It’s what @Ayrton said for both questions. I sent the medical examination only bc I was hopeful it wasn’t going to expire before the interview (it expires after 2 years) But it’s not mandatory, read the instructions carefully. And I didn’t change my last name.
  9. Yes, our worry was that he was unemployed literally a week before, we couldn’t send pay stubs from June and before that he was working 3 part time jobs, it was so inconsistent. And I see on vj a lot of: what matters is your current income and having a stable job. But I guess not for my case
  10. We didn’t have any assets or co sponsor, we just sent what we had: his tax return and his recent pay stubs. He lost his job in March and got it back mid June (Pandemic related). So we sent December, January, February and March pay stubs with the original application. For our interview we had new pay stubs from July, August and September, and a letter of employment but the officer didn’t ask for them. He did ask my husband what his current job was but that’s it.
  11. He went through the pages, read them and then made me sign at the end of the form that we didn’t make any changes during the interview, he didn’t ask anything from it.
  12. thank you so much! I’m sure your interview is going to go great, best of luck ❤️
