Poverty limits and travel document questions before sending AOS packet

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We are just about to send out our AOS/ED and travel document packet to USCIS, but not before clearing few things up.


1. Poverty limit. I was laid off last September due to company bankruptcy and has been unemployed since then looking for a better job opportunity. Poverty limit for household of two is $20,000 and I made more than that while being employed. Will this be an issue?


2. Travel document fee. Is $135 fee needed if applying for travel document while filing AOS/ED should the check? I-131 instructions note that fee is not required if I-485 was filed after July 30, 2007 with fee paid, but only if I-485 is still pending and if my fiancee holds US refugee or asylee status. Is she? If fee is required, should I send one bigger check or two separate checks (both to US Department of Homeland Security)?

1. Get a co sponsor or wait until you are employed, the poverty guidelines likely will go up around March, currently $ 20,0025.


2. You don't pay extra for the work authorization and travel permit when filing with  AOS together.
