I just got married to a non-US citizen, she came here on a tourist visa last October and we got married on Dec. We are initiating the paperworks to adjust her status. I have several clarifications needed since she has been here before 2yrs ago under L1 visa.

1. She already has an SSN before, should we put this on all the AOS forms?

2. On I-485, under what category should she fall. I am a US naturalized citizen. Is it right that to use "a. an immigrant petition giving me an immediately available visa number has been approved. (Attach a copy of the approval notice, or a relative, special immigrant juvenile, or special immigrant military visa petition filed with this application that will give you an immediately available visa number, if approved)"? Or should it be "Other" then we just specify that she got married to a US citizen?

3. On G-325A forms for both of us, under the field "this form is submitted in connection with an application for". Is it Status as Permanent Resident or Other.

4. On I-765 on the question "Have you ever before applied for employment authorization from USCIS", we are not sure if we should ticked yes because she have an L1 visa before. Although she is also not so familiar about it because her employer did all the paperworks and we may need to still go through her previous immigration documents to find out as well.

Really appreciate your response on this. Thanks and have a nice day.

Have you read the guides for this? http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.ph...page=i130guide2

I'm not personally informed on your type of process, but maybe the guides can help you. Also, there are example forms filled out under "Example Forms" in the blue menu bar. Maybe you can find some answers there too.

Hi orberns,

I also came here on a L1 visa, so I can help you:

1. She already has an SSN before, should we put this on all the AOS forms? Yes, put her SSN number when requested.

2. On I-485, under what category should she fall. I am a US naturalized citizen. Is it right that to use "a. an immigrant petition giving me an immediately available visa number has been approved. (Attach a copy of the approval notice, or a relative, special immigrant juvenile, or special immigrant military visa petition filed with this application that will give you an immediately available visa number, if approved)"? Or should it be "Other" then we just specify that she got married to a US citizen? A is the correct box to check.

3. On G-325A forms for both of us, under the field "this form is submitted in connection with an application for". Is it Status as Permanent Resident or Other. Adjustment of Status as Permanent resident.

4. On I-765 on the question "Have you ever before applied for employment authorization from USCIS", we are not sure if we should ticked yes because she have an L1 visa before. Although she is also not so familiar about it because her employer did all the paperworks and we may need to still go through her previous immigration documents to find out as well. Yes, her employer applied for emplyment authorization for her, so you should put "Yes" to that question.

Good luck!! :)

1) yes

2) A

3) Status as perm resident

4) L-1 is work authorized so the answer would be in the affirmative.
