How many passport photos for AOS and do I duplicate forms?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to put together the forms and evidence for AOS and i130 concurrent filing and getting in a terrible mess due to conflicting information across the internet.

The checklist on this website for AOS i485 with i130 just states:

For i130

1 passport photo of intending immigrant with 1 photo of US citizen

For i485

2 passport photos of intending immigrant.

So thats 3 photos of me and 1 of him. So why everywhere else on the internet does it say 6,7,and 8 photos?! I am so confused!

Also, If I'm flipping all this paperwork together do I have to print out duplicate copies of G325a for both forms? It seems so utterly ridiculous if they're in the same envelope and going to the same place in Chicago.

Please help! Thanks

Probably because different people submit different forms. Just follow the instructions on each form and you will not have any problems.

If you want an EAD you have to submit 2 photos for instance, I think you have to submit a photo if you are applying for AP too. Just follow the instructions for each form you are submitting.

Agree with above. If you want work authorization and to be able to travel out of and return to the US while you wait on the greencard, then you have four applications--

1) Petition I-130

2) Adjustment of Status I-485

3) EAD I-765 (work)

4) Advance Parole I-131 (travel)

They travel together to USCIS but then get split up to different places for processing. Treat each as if it is your one and only, reading the form instructions for what other forms, documents, or photos go with that application. Clip that application together and move on to the next. There will be duplication because it is four applications.

If you do all of the above applications there is 1 photo of the US citizen and 7 of the immigrant needed.
