Answered on Feb 5, 2016

Hello,

Do not worry, if they need more documents they will send you a RFE (Request for Evidence), you can then send the documents they ask for. If now please set up an info pass and submit the rest of the documents. Many immigration attorneys including me offer free consultations, make use of the consultations. All the best.

What is your wife's immigration status? How long have you known your wife? Which country are you from? You sure can apply for AOS but whether or not it will be approved depends on the answers to this question.
