  2. I had my biometrics(oct 7, 2015) and currently waiting. No case status online yet, and my current ead expires by dec, 12th 2015. A lil worried


  3. Hi. This blog has been really helpful since I’ve just finished my AOS process. I have two babies and they are going to join us next year. I’m just wondering if you have any sample forms for K2 that are “follow to join” and will have AOS on a later part.


    • Hi Giselle, thanks for stopping by. I am not sure I understand your question correctly, you mean sample form for K2? Or for AOS? Since I have my K2 with me since the beginning of My K1 Visa process, I’m not really sure about K2 “to follow”. However I think the k2 requirements are just the same with K2 except for Nbi clearance if they are a minor. I will dig more for answers about your question, for now hopefully I helped you.


  4. Hi Donna!
    Thank you so much for taking your time and creating this website. I use it all the time as I am going through the same process.
    I have had my overseas medical examination in November and am applying for the AOS now. So, less that 3 month. I do not have that class-A condition. However, I do not have anything from the overseas doctor, only my international immunization record. Do I need to see a civil surgeon in the US? Or do they have this information from the envelope I brought with me at the POE?
    I appreciate your help!


    • Hi Elena, thanks for your kind words. Hmm I don’t know about International immunization record, maybe you can call USCIS if that is acceptable specially if it’s within a year. Although I think (in my opinion) you probably need to see a civil surgeon.
