well hi, my first post :)

My question is the following:

Part 1 of form I-485 asks for "Current USCIS status" and also for "expiration on" date.

What should we enter on each question? My wife came in as J1 (no 2yr req) and completed her au pair program last year.

her visa expiration date is aug 2008 and her I-94 has no expiration but rather a D/S.

Thank you In advance.

When you arrive on a K-1, when the POE officer admits you into the USA, you are admitted with K-1 Status. You either retain this status or go out of status until such time as you adjust your status.

Cool, now back to the original question:

My question is the following:

Part 1 of form I-485 asks for "Current USCIS status" and also for "expiration on" date.

What should we enter on each question? My wife came in as J1 (no 2yr req) and completed her au pair program last year.

Same logic applies,

When you arrive on a J-1 visa, when admitted you are granted J-1 status. Your status remains the same until you go "out of status" or you adjust your status.

Hello everyone,

I have the following questions:

1- I am in the process of filling out AOS forms tonight. I came accross the same question in Part 1 of form I-485 asks for "Current USCIS status" and also for "expiration on" date.

What should I enter on each question? My wife came in as J1 (no 2yr req) and completed her au pair program 3 years ago. We got married 3 years ago.

her visa expiration date was 1/5/2005 and her I-94 has no expiration but rather a D/S.

I called INS and they told me to put out of status, not sure if it is correct and still do not know what to put in (expires on) blank. Do I have to put N/A or put the 1/5/2005.

2- Do I need to include form G-325 for myself and my wife once with I-130 and another with I-485? I am filing all the forms at the same time (AOS) package.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Your status is J-1, expiration date is D/S (duration of status). Make sure that her DS 2019 (the white form that was attached to her passport thet was stamped by the Immigration officer at the Point of Entry) also states "2 year rule does not apply" or "not subject to the two year residence requirement". Her visa might say that but this form must also say that.

If you have more questions about the D/S status I have a lot of info about it from my attorney.

Thanks for the information. I am still puzzeled because my wife does not have any white paper from the immigration officer at port of entry. All she has is the visa in her passport plus an I-94 which states a date of arrival (she took a short trip back to her country while her visa was current, came back on 6/2004) but initial visa issue date is 1/2004 which means it will expire 1/2005. They gave her this I-94 upon arrival back from her trip. So some people tell me to put (out of status as current status) and some says put (green card applicant) and others says put (j-1)

Again, no one clearely told me what would be the best answer, plus I still do not know if I should leave the question (expires on: ) blank or put the date the visa expired on which was 1/2005.

Also, I would likek to know if I should include my form G-325A (biographic info) together with my wife attached to the I-130 form, plus adding it to form I485 form. Like i said earlier I am sending the whole package for the first time including I-130 and green card, travel document, EAD and affidavit of support.

Finally, what is the norm as far as putting the package together. I mean when you put all the completed forms in 1 envelop, is there a right order too do that and can I staple individual forms and then clip them with each other as a package. Any suggestions/

Greatly appreciate all you guys help.

Since your wife has finished her exchange program a couple of years ago (I assume from the dates you are giving) she is "out of status". She would remain to be in J-1 status if she was continuing to work within the J-1 exchange program (which usually lasts 12 months plus one month for travel). If she has completed her program within the timeframe (those typical 12 months plus one for travel), and then stayed beyond that time she is out of status.

If she is out of status she shouldn't even apply for AP because she won't be able to use it... If she leaves the country she may trigger the ban (3 or 10 years, depending on how long she overstayed)

If she is out of status she shouldn't even apply for AP because she won't be able to use it... If she leaves the country she may trigger the ban (3 or 10 years, depending on how long she overstayed)

My wife is not planning to travel. the CIS customet service told me that the fee for filing I-485 includes AP anyways, can be used in case of an emergency. Since she over stayed, then she should apply for a waiver of inadmisability to be able to come back. She is not planning on traveling anyways.

My dilema is answering some of the questions on these forms.

I should put Current USCIS status: (out of status) ? and what should I put for Expires on:( ) ?

On the form I-485 Part 2 application type, I marked box (h) other basis of eligibilty, and filled in the blank as following : Adjustment of status through marriage to a naturalized US citizen or I am a spouse of a US citizen... do you think this is acceptable?

I can't wait until this is over and be done with it. It is too stressful to fill out and navigate these forms.

Any help from those of you who has gone through it will be great.

Thanks again.

I would put status: out of status, expires on: out of status. That's what's going to make the most sense. Are you a USC? Then your wife would fill out the 2nd part as: (h) Adjustment of Status based on a marriage to a USC.

Good luck!

Thanks again.

My wife is not planning to travel. the CIS customet service told me that the fee for filing I-485 includes AP anyways, can be used in case of an emergency. Since she over stayed, then she should apply for a waiver of inadmisability to be able to come back. She is not planning on traveling anyways.

My dilema is answering some of the questions on these forms.

I should put Current USCIS status: (out of status) ? and what should I put for Expires on:( ) ?

On the form I-485 Part 2 application type, I marked box (h) other basis of eligibilty, and filled in the blank as following : Adjustment of status through marriage to a naturalized US citizen or I am a spouse of a US citizen... do you think this is acceptable?

I can't wait until this is over and be done with it. It is too stressful to fill out and navigate these forms.

Any help from those of you who has gone through it will be great.

I would put status: out of status, expires on: out of status. That's what's going to make the most sense. Are you a USC? Then your wife would fill out the 2nd part as: (h) Adjustment of Status based on a marriage to a USC.

Good luck!

Thanks again.

Cool, now back to the original question:

My question is the following:

Part 1 of form I-485 asks for "Current USCIS status" and also for "expiration on" date.

What should we enter on each question? My wife came in as J1 (no 2yr req) and completed her au pair program last year.

her visa expiration date is aug 2008 and her I-94 has no expiration but rather a D/S.

Thank you In advance.

Your status is J-1, expiration date is D/S (duration of status). Make sure that her DS 2019 (the white form that was attached to her passport thet was stamped by the Immigration officer at the Point of Entry) also states "2 year rule does not apply" or "not subject to the two year residence requirement". Her visa might say that but this form must also say that.

If you have more questions about the D/S status I have a lot of info about it from my attorney.

Thanks for the information. I am still puzzeled because my wife does not have any white paper from the immigration officer at port of entry. All she has is the visa in her passport plus an I-94 which states a date of arrival (she took a short trip back to her country while her visa was current, came back on 6/2004) but initial visa issue date is 1/2004 which means it will expire 1/2005. They gave her this I-94 upon arrival back from her trip. So some people tell me to put (out of status as current status) and some says put (green card applicant) and others says put (j-1)

Again, no one clearely told me what would be the best answer, plus I still do not know if I should leave the question (expires on: ) blank or put the date the visa expired on which was 1/2005.

Also, I would likek to know if I should include my form G-325A (biographic info) together with my wife attached to the I-130 form, plus adding it to form I485 form. Like i said earlier I am sending the whole package for the first time including I-130 and green card, travel document, EAD and affidavit of support.

Finally, what is the norm as far as putting the package together. I mean when you put all the completed forms in 1 envelop, is there a right order too do that and can I staple individual forms and then clip them with each other as a package. Any suggestions/

Greatly appreciate all you guys help.

Since your wife has finished her exchange program a couple of years ago (I assume from the dates you are giving) she is "out of status". She would remain to be in J-1 status if she was continuing to work within the J-1 exchange program (which usually lasts 12 months plus one month for travel). If she has completed her program within the timeframe (those typical 12 months plus one for travel), and then stayed beyond that time she is out of status.

My wife is not planning to travel. the CIS customet service told me that the fee for filing I-485 includes AP anyways, can be used in case of an emergency. Since she over stayed, then she should apply for a waiver of inadmisability to be able to come back. She is not planning on traveling anyways.

My dilema is answering some of the questions on these forms. ( Do you have any idea on how to answer the other questions in mentioned earlier?)

Sorry I messed up the previous post. Again!

Status:out of status, expires on: out of status (that's what I would choose to write in there). Basis for eligibility: Marriage to a USC.

Thaks (Joanna & Bobby), it has been a great support, getting your input... again I feel lots of

Is there anyone out there who actually filed their application inserting (out of status) as current CIS status and it was acceptable by USCIS? if that is the case then i feel comfortable. If there is a better response, it would be better since I do not want CIS to return our applications, and delay it further.

My wife has been stuck at home for the past 3 and half years at home.
