F1 oversrayed ajusting status

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I came in US on F1 VISA and my OPT expired in June this year. I married my husband in July during my two month grace period after OPT. We are about to file our paperwork now, but many things are unclear. First, I overstayed for couple months and I really do not know what to put as my current USCIS status on I 485 and I 765? I have came across many possibilities on the internet, but not sure which one to trust. Second, my husband did not file taxes for 2014 due to low income, so do we need to check the box, on  I 485 part 6 question 20, that says I wasn't required to file due to low income? He did file for 2015 and we will send a proof of that. Also I didn't mention we have a joint sponsor. Third, my husband has no assets that could help him become only sponsor, and his income is below poverty line. Since we have a joint sponsor, is my husband required to show any assets on I 485 or is it optional even when the income is below poverty line?

Thanks a lot!!!!!

About the taxes, yes it is OK to not file and check the low income thing. But he needs a tax transcript of that year not filing...I think it is called a letter of non filing status? Someone can correct me on the exact name but I know it exists, I had to get one for my student loan process way back when. You can call the IRS and order tax transcripts or do it online.....it is my opinion you should go on and get transcripts of his for the past three years just in case you got an RFE, and send that no file letter with your AOS package as legal proof for 2014. 

Not worth it to show any of his assets, your joint sponsor is now showing their income to cover the immigrant and their household. I will get back to you about the status to put, my husband overstayed as well and I have to look at our copies rather than guess. 

By the way.....you're in Charlotte?!?! Oh my God, you're the first other person I've met in the city on VJ :)
