Just to make sure...

In the form DS 260, is it right to answer the question whether spouse (and kids) immigrate with you with "NO" seeing as they're all US citizens and thus not technically immigrating?

(Kids have been born abroad and got their consular certificate of birth abroad to establish citizenship...)

arrowI 864 - no ITIN yet; quickest way to file taxes?

Just wondering whether anyone has any input; here's our problem:

Husband (USC) didn't know he needed to file taxes even when living abroad and staying under the critical amount that gets taxed.

Now we received our packet 3 letter and need to get the documents, including the I 864, done ASAP, but on Turbotax we seem to need a SSN for me (the NRA and visa applicant) to be able to proceed.

Of course I don't have one yet (well, no US SSN...)

Does anyone know what would be the fastest and best way to get the taxes filed? Do we really already need the ITIN before doing so?

Any idea how long this all could take now?

Or are we doomed for a long delay?

Any help much appreciated - as I myself have zero knowledge about filing taxes.

Hey guys,


We are filling out the forms right now and were wondering if its faster to


a) apply for the SSN checking the box in the form along with the green card application (IR-CR1)




b) go to the social security office in the US after arrival?


I vaguely remember reading in the forum that option b) would be faster but can you explain it a bit? Any opinions on it?

Also how long does it generally take to receive your SSN?


Thank you so much!

arrowI-131: Petitioner doesn't currently work

Hi All,
I am very new to all of this. My husband and I are planning to file AOS together since I'm already living in the US. I've been here for the last 9 years on student visas.

My husband didn't file a tax return for 2013, as he was overseas and didn't collect income above the filing requirements. - We will send a statement explaining this

2014 he filed and for 2015 we are currently preparing a late return.

His 2015 income exceeds the poverty limit for our household size (just me and him).
I am worried because he doesn't currently work "on the books" anywhere.

He is in the process of starting a LLC and in the time leading up to it, he just takes cash.

Will it be ok to just put the cash amounts as income and say that he is doing personal training?  He doesn't have any pay stubs or employment letter to show.

Should we submit a statement explaining that he plans to start his business this year?
Should we say he is unemployed?


Since I've been living in the US for a while now, is there any way my tax return can be taken into consideration? I have had a jobs in 2015 and will be able to return to my current job after the AOS is done and my EAD arrives (unless of course this ends up being super delayed because of the tax/work mess).


Any help is appreciated!
