I-485 form for adjustment of status

I am currently filling out the change of status paperwork for my husband. ON the I-485 form, there is a box on page one directly under "Country of Citizenship/Nationality" box. It asks for the A# (if any). I can't find any information on this "A#" and while there is a number starting with A on my husband's I-94# card, but I'm not sure that is what they are looking for. Does anyone know what number they are talking about? THANKS!

The A# is the Alien Registration Number. If your husband has ever been approved previously to work legally (e.g. applied for OPT after graduation), he must have an A# assigned, and you can find it on the EAD. If not, then most probably he has no A#.


11/17/08 : Application sent (I-130, I-131, I-485, I-765)

11/18/08 : Official receipt of documents stated on I-797C (Signature for receipt at USCIS was on 11/17/2008 at 10PM)

11/28/08 : NOA Received ( I-797C) for all 4 forms (forms issued on 11/26/2008)

04/28/2009 at 9:30 AM: Interview. Told to wait 90 days for a resolution by mail.

The A# is the Alien Registration Number.
Everyone whose U.S. partner filed a petition through USCIS should have an A#. I learned of my then-fiancee's A# by complete accident, when a very helpful Immigration Officer (a level beyond the customer-disservice people) volunteered it to me! Phone USCIS and learn what your husband's A# is.

06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

The A number is printed on the NOA2. It's on the visa. They write it on the I-94.

It should be on the visa. I had to point out to the immigration officer at my POE that it was written on mine (he was looking for it on other papers). He told me that consulates are meant to put it on the visa but many don't.

The 'Annotation' section of my K1 shows the date the petition was approved, the service center that approved it and my A-number. It was printed by London.
