Do i need to include the medical exam when mailing the forms to USCIS for green card based on marriage?

I called the closet civil surgeon to me and he gives appointments after 3 weeks , can i mail the package now and then mail the medical exam later ? and also is it possible that the civil surgeon charges $1300 for the exam !! I called the secretary and just asked how much you guys charge without knowing anything ,she said $1300, I said must be a mistake or something maybe $130, because i asked more than 10 friends and they paid between$ 150-300!

The sealed envelope with the medical exam for AOS must be submitted along with all required filings in the above.

You need to mail the medical exam with the rest of your I-130/I-485 application. Call around and talk to other civil surgeons - they are allowed to set their own prices and perhaps you can find one with more reasonable prices.

This general advice does not create an attorney-client relationship.

The I-485 must be filed with the medical exam.
