hey spartan, hard at it, huh?

I-765 goes to the local CIS. check the instruction page. Im in CA, so ours goes to Laguna Niguel, CA. see page 10, item 1, then check the chart on the next page.

i wrote a separate cover letter for the I-765, and said that my husband is simultaneously filing for AOS, and therefore does not pay an additional fee for the 765.

if your wife's birth cert in not in english you need to translate it. you can do that yourself if you are fluent in the language. you just add a little statement saying that you are fluent in both languages (name them ) and attest that this is an accurate translation.

hope this helps!

Spartan,

Dont forget to include a copy of her I-94, front and back. also note that some of those docs need to also be sent with the 765 to the other address. i made a second set of copies of these for the 765, along with another cover letter:

I 94 front and back, passport photo page, visa (in passpport ) page, his ID card from his country (front and back, as additional identification and because it's fingerprinted) and 2 MORE PASSPORT PHOTOS (doh! )

This is incorrect. Your I-765 needs to be mailed to the Chicago lockbox along with your AOS and AP applications! Set them up as individual applications, with their own set of evidence (you'll send multiple copies of some evidence, but each application gets split off and handled by a different adjudicator) and paper clip each application together with it's evidence, then put them all in one envelope and send them off. Good luck. :)

I would strongly recommend you check out the guide for AOS filing, it will tell you anything else you need to know. :)

Ai, yi yi, thank God for VJ! So, I want to be totally sure... on the I-765 the directions say to send it not to the Chicago Lockbox but to the Local, per the chart (page 10, item 1, I-765 instructions on USCIS website). On the VJ Guide, it says to put the 765 with the AOS docs and send it all to the Lockbox. Which is correct, and how are we sure of that? Not to doubt anyone, just want to double check. THANKS!

I'm not sure which set of instructions you are looking at...here are the current ones from the USCIS site: I-765 instructions Check out the bottom of page 8 where it lists where to file. :) If you entered as a K-1 holder you would be in category ©(9), the instructions say:

If your response to Question 16 is ©(9) and you filed your

I-485 application with the USCIS Chicago Lockbox Facility,

file your Form I-765 with the following address (if you filed

your Form I-485 with a USCIS Service Center, see

instructions below):

For U. S. Postal Service (USPS) deliveries:

USCIS Lockbox Addresses:

USCIS

P.O. Box 805887

Chicago, IL 60680-4120

For courier/express deliveries:

USCIS

Attn: FBAS

131 South Dearborn - 3rd Floor

Chicago, IL 60603-5517

And I know what you mean about Thank god for VJ! We never would have gotten this far through the process without the help we've gotten here. :wacko:

Ahhh, thank you, but with further confusion!

I'm also finishing putting together the whole AOS/EAD/AP package. I was also working off of the same set of instructions that you have the link for, from the USCIS website. But the way I read the instructions was that I had to file as (a)(6), K-1 non immigrant fiance of US citizen (page 4, item 6), instead of Adjustment applicant ©(9), page 5 item 7, because my reading of item 7 was that your AOS had to be already filed, and you needed to provide an NOA.

So what do you think? Now it is clear that if you decide on ©(9) that you send it to the lockbox.

hmmm...your thoughts?

According to the VJ guide and example forms, you would file as c(9). That's what we did, it hasn't been approved yet, but it is also the advice that has been given by all of the other people on VJ who have already been approved. :) Follow the guides and you shouldn't have a problem.
