  • AOS approved - Thank you

    Hi,

    I would like to thank everyone for the useful information you've given us. It was a great help. We had our appt. this past Monday and everything went well. We were prepared and organized. The officer asked us some basic questions and noted everything we said. He reveiwed our documents and photos. My wife will soon be getting her Greencard in the mail. No stamp was given due to the fact he was a new officer and is still waiting for his stamp to arrive. We've waited close to 2 years for this to happen. I think we can wait another month. Again, Thank you. Reviewing previous posts answered alot of our questions.

      Congrats. I would like to know did the officer said anything about name check. I was approved in August 2004 and the officer told me exactly the same thing plus name clearance. And now it's been more than 2 years and still no G-card.

        The officer did not say anything about a name clearance. I asked the officer what if the Greencard doesn't come in a month. He said to make an inquiry. If we don't get the Greencard in 3 weeks I'm going to start the inquiry process. Did you try writing to your Congressman/Congresswoman for help? They're very helpful. They helped with another issue I had.

          Yep, I tried that also. As a matter of fact my name check clearance came through in mid February. Now they say that it's with the supervisor to approve/deny the case. Sounds strange, despite our application was approved.

            To all those who are "stuck" in name check:

            I don't understand what this impatience with "name check" is all about?

            One thing you should care about: whether you committed a crime in past or not.

            If you didn't - even if the "name check" takes 20 years - then who cares!

            Sure you can initiate "Mandamus Action" if it takes way too long, but what is the point?
            You have almost all the benefits of LPR in the meantime (EAD, eligible to apply for AP, can work/study anywhere you wish. What more do you need?)

            If you need real immigration info and help, visit www.immigration.com and respective forum

            Good Luck !

              Having a green card and having a green card application are not the same. If you are waiting for a security check -- you have to keep renewing work authorization and/or parole; many people are ineligible to travel, and you have no real proof of your legal status.

                AOS applicant is eligible to apply and receive AP. And since new LPRs are not "Donald Trumps" anyway, but hard-working people trying to establish new residence, few really need AP to travel abroad. But in case if they need to travel they can apply and receive needed document.

                And legal status of AOS applicant, for immigration purposes, is "Pending AOS".

                Having EAD, DL , SS and etc., why and what more proof of status one would need?

                  True, but in my case she didn't receive a stamp in her passport and my wife is in limbo until she receives her Greencard. I have to rely on them to send it and hopefully it won't get lost in the mail. On top of that my wife wants to go back and visit her parents since they are ill. Having the actual card means alot to her at least.

                      Dali,

                      Most of us want to become American citizens eventually, and since it takes 5 years for a GC holder to be eligible for that - I assume no one can be indifferent to delays in the process. Don't forget, also, that renewing EAD and AP is costly.

                      Besides, as they say, "it's not over until the fat lady sings"; until you have a GC, anything can change. A new legistation can come about that can change or eliminate rights of "pending AOS" aliens. For employment-based GC, one must remain in the same line of business and even the same exact occupation at all times. I'm sure you can understand why applicants and anxious to get it over with.

                      Besides, I'd like to stand in the LPR and USC line at the airport and hear the officer say the magic words: "welcome home, sir". Call me crazy.
