I am about to send I-485 form for AOS but I have some doubts regarding how it has to be filled and also the support documentation that goes with it. I´ve been gathering information from multiple forums and web pages and the conclusion is that this is very confussing, and also i haven´t come across any checklist of documents based on being a DV program winner, and I was wondering if someone is or has been in my situation so that I know I´m doing things right.
1. Regarding the filling of form I-485 and other forms required: from what I´ve read you should write N/A or NONE when it is the case, BUT, the latest instructions of form I-485 clearly states that I´ve that happens, you should leave the space blank. So, does this apply to other forms such as G-325a, in which no instructions for that are provided? (I worry about this aspect because I read a lot of times that you should not leave any spaces blank, and I dont know if this is something they take into account a lot)
2. Regarding the support documents: If I follow instructions on form I-485, then I´d only need to include: check, photos, page with visa on passport copy, medical report, birth certificate,and form G-325 a. However I have read that other documents needed are: copies of I-20 and I-94 and I also have read that you should include copies of all pages of your passport. Should I include them even though It´s not stated on the I-485 instructions?
3. For documents supporting my DV program winner status I should include the DOS fee receipt, the DOS "notification letter"(the first I received) and also proof of having the educational requirements, like the high school diploma right? is this the time to send them, along with form I-485, or should I bring them on the day on the interview?
Am I forgetting any other documents?
I appreciate all the helpful information you could give me, because I´m finding this process very confusing, and I just want to make sure I´m doing it correctly.
Thanks in advance:)
