Get ready to send AOS out

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a couple of questions before I will send out my AOS papers tomorrow...

I'm applying for AOS. EAD and Advanced Parole...how am I suppost to send it out? All in one envelope and then just seperate the AOS EAD and Advanced Parole Papers with a paper clip?

And it is right that I have to send everything to Chicago?? Do I have to let them now that I filed with Vermont Service Center before, or do they figure out which service center from the A#??

I will send a list of things I send out...maybe someone could please let me know if I have everything I need...

I 485:

Check 395$

Birthcertificate Copy internationale

Copy of non immigrant visa page & entry stamp

2 pictures

medical form I-693A

G-325A

I94 front & back

Affidavit of support I-864 (Tax returns last 3 years, employer letter, pay stubs)

Petition Approcal NOA 2

Marriage Certificate

EAD:

180$

I-94 front & back

2 Pics

I131:

170$

copy of non immigrant visa page

2 pics

I hope somebody could let me know if I'm all set to send it out...

Or if there is anything I should know...

Thank you

Nina

I added a letter to the AP explaining why I need it (sick grandparents). Couldn't hurt ;)

Hubbies/sponsor's proof of citizenship? Very important! Did you get money orders or cashier's check (we did cashier's checks)?

Hi,

Here is just my opinion. Because I got a RFE for I-864 (seem like many people got it too). I think after you send out your package you should request a tax transcript from IRS. It will take about a week or two. Just to make sure that you don't need to wait for it if you get a RFE for it and it doesn't cost anyting.

Good luck :D

P.S. I also sent them the photocopy of my sponsor W-2, passport, driver's license, birth certificate as well.

@ Anna,

I just looked through the AP and saw that under part 7...I thought I would write just to visit my family...What else do I have to write on that paper my A# etc??

Proof of citizenship...the birth certificate??

What do you mean with money orders or cashier's check?? My hubby will just use his normal checks...is that ok??

@pattra

we got the IRS tax transcript for 2004 & 2003 I copied that already...or do you think we also need that for 2005??

Thank you guys!!

Do I also have to make a coverletter??

Miss USA,

According to RFE, USCIS requested 2005 Tax transcript only. So, I think all they need is the most recent one.

For all fees, we paid by personal check too. They cashed it without any problem.

Oops just saw the other question here.

We did cashier's checks because you can track them, but personal checks are fine I assume. cashier's checks are as good as cash, because personal checks can bounce, cashier's checks can't. We just wanted everything to be secure. ;)

On the letter for AP I put all information we had so far (didn't have an A number back then), like address, name, email, blablabla. You can put visit family, that is totally fine. But we wanted to make our point that there are unhealthy grandparents whose condition might become serious at any time, which is true, and in that case I want to be prepared to fly home. But so far they didn't bother since I don't have my AP yet....

Good luck!

Anna

Edit: We added hubbie's birth certificate and my mother in law's notarized passport copy (co sponsor) since she was born in Argentina her birth cert wouldn't prove her citizenship.

Hi,

I'm getting my AOS ready also, I've read different answers for tax returns. How many years do you have to send them...is only 2005 sufficent?

Is it neccesary to send copies of your paystubs? If so, How many years?

Also, is a letter from your employer needed?

Thank you

Good luck,

I sent in only 2005 and that was all they needed, they did send me and RFE for the employer letter and they wanted additional copies of tax returns. I think that is a standard response, if they ask for one, they ask for it all again.

Fasten each application with an ACCO fastener, it's what they ask for and plus this way you know the papers are securely bound. With a paperclip they could easily get mixed up/get lost.
