Re: AOS taking FOREVER!

At least the next step is only one Form to complete and by the looks of things you will be eligible to file for the ROC about a month after me!

Re: CA driver's license/greencard

It should also be noted that the DMV will only issue you the DL for the duration of the EAD, which will be 12 months and so once you get your GC you will need to pay the cost of a new DL.

Re: Young Family moving to Denver CO.
