Interview in August. Question on RFE letter
Hi All! This might sound like a stupid question but I want to be absolutely sure. Even though my I-693 was valid (until July 17th, 2021) - I went ahead to get an updated I-693 just to be sure that I have everything. I have an updated and signed I-693 in a sealed envelope (signed by civil surgeon on June 14th 2021). Our interview was originally scheduled for June 18th but on June 17th, it was declared a federal holiday to observe Juneteenth - so the USCIS office was closed and our interview was rescheduled.

The new interview is in the first week of August. I was expecting an RFE as my original I-693 will expire on July 17th. Just got this RFE letter saying:

'A review of our records shows that you need to provide the requested information and/or documents. Please bring the requested information to your I-485 Adjustment of Status interview on this date XX, XX, XXXX.
Please visit USCIS website for instructions as to how to correct the form I-693. The completed and updated Medical Examination and Vaccination Record must be returned in a sealed envelope.'

Couple of Questions:
1. Letter states to bring the I-693 to the interview and then goes on to say 'must be returned in a sealed envelope'. Am I supposed to send it in mail or just take it with me to the interview? (Interview scheduled for first week of August)
2. At the time of interview, my sealed I-693 will still be within a 60 day period since being signed by civil surgeon. I think it should be good to be submitted per the information on Right?

Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks everyone! All the best for your journeys!!

San Francisco Filer- interview at San Jose Field Office
PD- March 2020
Interview scheduled- June 2021
Received notice today
Interview date - Aug 3rd 2021 at San Jose Field Office

I have 2 questions

I have a 11 month old baby, can I take him with me for my interview. The notice doesn’t say, don’t bring children.

My passport has gone for renewal, I’m not sure if I’ll get it before the interview date.. is that going to be a problem? I can take the official govt receipt that says my passport is in renewal.

Any help will be appreciated

Hello good people! My I-485 application arrived at Dallas lockbox on 06/02/2021. When can I expect a text (SMS) message confirming receipt of the application? And when should I expect to get the receipt notice based on current experiences?

RFE Submitted After Interview
Hello Everyone, on June 30th I have finished my I485 interview and the officer she gave me an RFE at end of the interview, she told me that as soon as submit the RFE through the mail soon I will get the decision. After the interview I went straight to the Fedex which is next block from the field office and sent the additional documentation which the officer asked for along with that RFE letter she gave me. The mail has delivered the very next day at noon. How soon they will open my mail and make the decision? I am nervous and scared that they will take forever to make final decision. Field office is Fresno, CA

Hi everyone,
I filed my AOS in 2018, did two interviews and it went well. However my hubby started messing up things after interview so after 3yrs and 4months of being together I filed in for VAWA and I got a primia facie letter approval with 60days. Does anyone know how long it's going to take to get approved? Pls share your thoughts and opinion. Thank you.

December 9th, 2020 2nd Biometrics
September 19 2020 received my combo card
September 3rd, 2020 1st Biometrics
July 1st, 2020 we accepted your fingerprints fee
June 1 st 2020 We received your 1-485 Application to register for permanent residency

The interview was easy as my husband (U.S. Citizen) was asked questions on what he filled in the application.
I was also asked to answer questions I had submitted with the application.

We were asked to explain the timeline of our relationship, like where we met, when did we decide it was serious, if we had a big wedding and finally we were asked for pictures.

The case was approved on the spot and we were given an approval notice.

AOS I-485 Marriage Based - Medical Exam
Hello everyone,

My package delivery was on 06/26/2019 so at this point the Exam is expired for the 2 year validity

I have two questions:

- Can I take the exam now right now when my status is "Case is ready to be scheduled for an interview" and just mail it to USCIS again? (I read that the exam has a validity of 60 days after the surgeon signs it in order for USCIS to receive it but I don't know if this rule applies if I already submitted the I-485)

- In case I wait to get my exam done the moment my status changes to "Interview scheduled" will I have enough time to get it done? (Last time it took me around 3 weeks)

Thank you!
