Hi all,

I have a question. I'm 99.9% ready to file my I-485 (family-based). However, I don't know what I-94 number to use. In the past, I have had multiple H-1B applications approved; they were all filed with the I-94 number 36925814703, regardless of what the I-94 attached to my passport was. In fact, it is my understanding that the lower portion of form I-707A (notice of approval of I-129, aka, the H-1B status) is effectively an I-94 in its own right. It bears the number 36925814703 stated above. However, the I-94 currently attached to my passport has the number 85296330741, and I wrote this latter in the I-485 and other forms.

I think I should correct things to have the number 36925814703 in the forms. Is this the correct way to proceed? It is very confusing to have *two* I-94 numbers!

Any comments will be appreciated.

Both of your I-94 should be the same (if you adjusted to H1B) in the US and then did not travel out of the country. However if you traveled since you received the NOA for H1B, then use the one from the last entry.
