arrowWhere do you find alien number on citizenship certificate?

I'm trying to fill out my N400 form and one of the parts asked if my parents were citizen of U.S.


My mother became citizen (naturalized) around 1990s and when I was filing out the form,


it asked if my mother has A number, which I think it means the alien number you get when you get green card. 


But she didn't have it so she sent me a picture of her citizenship certificate, but I have a hard time figuring out which one is the alien number.


I've included a photo that she sent me (I covered the number). I think the A number I'm looking for is the second number I covered, but the problem is that


instead of number being 9 digits, it's 8 digits. So the number is A00-000-000 and I don't know if this is the right one because my A number is 9 digits without A.


If you could please help me I would truly appreciate. Thank you in advance.

arrowQuestions to filing I-751

Hello All,


I am U.S. Citizen and my wife is currently Green Card with Conditions (she got her greencard based on our marriage)

My wife and I got married back in May 2014 and she got her green card in February 5th, 2015.

Since it is almost time to start her I-751 to remove the conditions, we are beginning to work on our package.


Few questions.. when I tried to download the i-751 form, I saw below instructions on it, it states as below..


"You and your spouse must apply together to remove the conditions on your residence by filing Form I-751. You should apply during the 90 days before your second anniversary as a conditional resident. The expiration date on your green card is also the date of your second anniversary as a conditional resident. If you do not apply to remove the conditions in time, you could lose your conditional resident status and be removed from the country."


1.Do we need to file 2 separate I-751 for each one of us? and also pay two filing fees ($505 x 2)?

Or do we file one I-751 under my wife's name?


2.Since her green card's 2nd year anniversary is on the February 5th, 2017, should I send the file exactly on the 90 days before which I am assuming on November 7th?


3.Below are what we can provide as evidences for our marriage.

A. marriage license,

B. photos,

C. airplane tickets (we traveled ALOT internationally),

D. our joint car insurance,

E. joint checking account,

F. joint tax returns,

G. joint credit cards(wife being Authorized user),

H. wife being the beneficiary of my life insurance(company paid for and I have to look for this document),

I. our 5 month old daughter who we had in May 2016, her birth certificate stating myself as the father and my wife as the mother,


Other than these, we do not have much more than this... is this enough? We live with my parents and I give my parents money(cash) monthly so my parents can pay the mortgage and utilities, etc... Any other recommendation for evidences? Can't think of others..


4. Lastly, are interview must for all i-751 applicants? We are asking because we get super nervous and I heard some people bypass the interview and gets approved for removal of conditions.


Thank you all,

I am just little worried about the process because the trouble some we had when filing for her greencard two years ago (Mailman failure to deliver our interview appointment letter causing denial to our application, etc).


Good luck all and I pray for you all!

arrowi-864 Question, Savings in Child's Name Count as Asset?

I'm an American with a Korean wife and we have our Visa interview in Nov. We will be qualifying based on assets and not income, and we have over $100k liquid with proof, but just to be safe I want to show everything. 


Our son (4 years old, US citizen) has about $10k in a savings account in his name that we will be transferring. Can we include this savings? Where do we include this on the i-864? Part 7, 5a and 5b seem like the right place, but it appears that we should only include household member's assets for whom we have already filled out an i-864a. 


Does anyone have experience with this? Help!

Hi there, 


These could be dumb questions, but I am clueless! If someone can save me, I would deeply appreciate it. What is the easiest and fastest way of getting your tax returns/tax transcripts when in Korea? Step by step if you can=)

Also, I haven't filed my taxes in America for over 10 years as I have been working in Korea. I did file taxes in Korea though. How do I go about this? Do I just file the past 3 years according to obtaining a green card for my spouse or do I have to file all the years I have been in Korea? Where should I file my taxes? Online?

Hi there


I am an American citizen having lived in Korea for over 10 years right after graduating from my university. My wife who is a Korean citizen and I are currently still in Korea waiting to obtain a gree card. We have been approved of the petition and now on to the next step of the process.  My brother will be my joint sponsor. Now my question is, what are the steps to go about this Affidavit of Support I-864?


I know that I have to fill out the form and all, but who needs to get the tax returns and if so how many years? 3 years? I know that my joint sponsor will need his tax returns, but will I as well since I am the petitioner of my spouse? 


If I want to get my tax returns, what is the easiest and possible way of doing so?


If you guys could get back to me on this, I will really appreciate it! 

Thanks and have a great day!
