Help Filling Forms

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I am a F-1 student at the moment, filling the forms for adjustment of status through marriage. But I have a few concrete questions regarding some of the forms. If anyone can help me, I would really appreciate it.

1) Form I-485: "Current USCIS Status" and "Expires on" . --> Would I put "F1" and "expiration date of visa" respectively here?
2) Form I-485: "Nonimigrant visa number" --> I have looked online for this, but cannot come to an answer. There is nothing called this or similar to this on my visa. I am not sure what to put here.
3) Form I-130, question 22: "USCIS office in.." ---> how do I know which USCIS office I should use? Simply the closest to where I live? Or is there a designated office for certain locations?

4) Form G-325A: "File number" ---> Starts with an "A" according to the form, however I have no idea where this number would come from.
5) Form G-325A: "Alien Registration Number" --> Exactly the same as above, starts with an "A" , yet I don't know where to get it from.

6) Form I-765, question 16: "Who may file form I-765" --> I am not sure on the category, I belive it might be (a)(9) "k-3 Nonimmigrant Spouse of US citizen or K-4 Dependent" . (I got married to a US citizen, currently going to college on a F1 visa. I have been in the US for more than 90 days. And I am applying for a green card.) If (a)(9) is the right category, which parenthesis would I leave blank on the form? (there are three parenthesis to fill).

Thank you for reading, I would really appreciate the help. Thank you very much in advanced.
And I apologize if I am creating this thread on the wrong sub-forum.

1) Form I-485: "Current USCIS Status" and "Expires on" . --> Would I put "F1" and "expiration date of visa" respectively here?

I would put "F1 Visa Holder" and then yes the expiration of the visa


2) Form I-485: "Nonimigrant visa number" --> I have looked online for this, but cannot come to an answer. There is nothing called this or similar to this on my visa. I am not sure what to put here.

It is generally the RED number on the visa itself. You can google it too for a picture of where to find it.


3) Form I-130, question 22: "USCIS office in.." ---> how do I know which USCIS office I should use? Simply the closest to where I live? Or is there a designated office for certain locations?

Closest, at least thats what I did!

4) Form G-325A: "File number" ---> Starts with an "A" according to the form, however I have no idea where this number would come from.

5) Form G-325A: "Alien Registration Number" --> Exactly the same as above, starts with an "A" , yet I don't know where to get it from.

You probably dont have an A number. My husband who just filed for AOS was here on E3 visa and does not have an A number so I simply left this blank. It comes up a lot on many forms.

6) Form I-765, question 16: "Who may file form I-765" --> I am not sure on the category, I belive it might be (a)(9) "k-3 Nonimmigrant Spouse of US citizen or K-4 Dependent" . (I got married to a US citizen, currently going to college on a F1 visa. I have been in the US for more than 90 days. And I am applying for a green card.) If (a)(9) is the right category, which parenthesis would I leave blank on the form? (there are three parenthesis to fill).

We were ©(9) but I am not very familiar with the categories so I'll leave this to someone else. As far as how to enter, I left the third one blank.

Good luck! :)

1) Form I-485: "Current USCIS Status" and "Expires on" . --> Would I put "F1" and "expiration date of visa" respectively here? Yes

2) Form I-485: "Nonimigrant visa number" --> I have looked online for this, but cannot come to an answer. There is nothing called this or similar to this on my visa. I am not sure what to put here. Number in red, lower right on visa

3) Form I-130, question 22: "USCIS office in.." ---> how do I know which USCIS office I should use? Simply the closest to where I live? Or is there a designated office for certain locations? You just have to list your city and state where you live, or go here and find the exact city for your location > http://www.uscis.gov/about-us/find-uscis-office/field-offices

4) Form G-325A: "File number" ---> Starts with an "A" according to the form, however I have no idea where this number would come from.

5) Form G-325A: "Alien Registration Number" --> Exactly the same as above, starts with an "A" , yet I don't know where to get it from. The file and A# are the same thing. You do not have an A# yet, so leave those blank.

6) Form I-765, question 16: "Who may file form I-765" --> I am not sure on the category, I belive it might be (a)(9) "k-3 Nonimmigrant Spouse of US citizen or K-4 Dependent" . (I got married to a US citizen, currently going to college on a F1 visa. I have been in the US for more than 90 days. And I am applying for a green card.) If (a)(9) is the right category, which parenthesis would I leave blank on the form? (there are three parenthesis to fill). No. Your category is (c )(9 ), which is for an adjustment applicant. You leave the last one blank.

Thank you for reading, I would really appreciate the help. Thank you very much in advanced.
