Hi! I havent seen any post about the Nashville TN field Office. I created this forum for every nashvillian filing AOS through marriage and who is waiting for an interview. I would like to have an idea of The office processing time. Please write down your time line below if you are waiting to be interviewed or already had your interview. My Priority Date is OCT 22 2018 and i am still waiting for an interview.
How long is I-693 form (filled by a doctor/civil surgeon in a sealed envelop) valid? I am on F1 working under OPT, and I got married to a US citizen more than a year ago. We have applied for AOS through a lawyer, and he submitted all documents except for I-693, saying I can just get the medical check done by the time of the AOS interview. A few days ago, we got a courtesy letter from USCIS saying I-693 is missing, and we need to bring it with us to the interview. I have not completed the medical checkup because I wasn't sure how soon the interview will take place. We have not even received an interview date notice. But I am thinking receiving this letter from USCIS means I might have the interview coming up soon? and I want to get done with the medical test and have the I-693 ready. HOWEVER, I am also worried that if I get the I-693 completed, and have it ready now, and say I won't get the interview date for half a year from now. Does that make my I-693 invalid? How long is it valid? I don't wanna do it too soon if it has expiration.
I am international and got married to my US citizen spouse. We are a same sex married couple. We have been together for 4 years (3 years girlfriend-girlfriend relationship, and 1 year marriage). It has been about a year since we got married. and we have our interview scheduled about a month from today. I would like to know what kind of documentations we should bring with us to the interview to prove that our relationship is bona fide. The below are my concerns: 1) Since we are both still young, and we are both of same sex, we cannot and are not going to have a baby. 2) Since we both work and have a different style of spending habit (I am an over-spender, and my wife saves every cent), we decided NOT to commingle our finances. We have a joint bank account but we rarely use it, and we both have our own bank account. I didn't wanna over-spend the money she saved because I know she owes a lot to her parents, and needs to pay back. 3) We did not have a wedding ceremony. We only went to a country court with a few friends of ours, and the judge there married us. So the marriage is real, and it happened and we have a married certificate too, but we did NOT have a real wedding ceremony (where all families are invited and have good meals, and the couple make a speech etc). 4) Since we are same-sex couple, and my family is strongly against homosexuality and I am afraid of getting disowned, I haven't been able to come out to my parents NOR told them I got married. My wife's family is quite opposite and they are very supportive of our relationship and marriage. So my wife and her family have never met any of my family members (they even live overseas) nor we have a family photo. We only have a family photo of me and my wife's family. Since I am on F1 and already live in the US, I have visited her family and took a photo together. 5) We did not go on a honeymoon. We were not really financially capable at that time of marriage, and our work has kept us busy since then. So we are thinking about bringing the following: 1) Lease agreement with both of our names on it. We have been living together since marriage. 2) Photos of us from dating and marriage. These are all taken by phones, so we are going to print them on papers. Does they count as real photos? We didn't take any photos with an actual camera. 3) Receipts from when we both went out together, or ate out together, since marriage. We sometimes split bills but I stapled both of those receipts to show that we were there at the same time. 4) Rent payment receipt done by both of us. It is done online, so I am going to print them to show that we have been paying rent together. 5) Bills (Light/Water etc) sent to us that have both of our names on them. 6) Car insurance with my and my wife's names. I have a car and my wife doesn't but my car insurance coverage insures both of us. 7) Health insurance with both of our names. My wife doesn't have insurance from her work, but I do and it covers both of us. 8 ) Old text messages from back in 2014. I am going to screenshot some lovey-dovey messages from each year until our marriage. We texted almost every day while we were in a relationship and lived apart. 9) A stuffed animal my wife gave me on 2015 Valentine. (I am not sure if this even counts... we don't have a receipt) I know there is no definite answer, but do you think these can be used as good evidence to prove us bone-fide? Since we are missing some important things written in the first half of this question, I am very concerned.
