Hi!

Seems like a silly question, but I was wondering, if the USCIS would object to colour photocopies of documents that are to be attached to the AOS application. Since i am using a home laser printer, I wanted to confirm if they would object to it.

Anybody?

You can make B/W copies from you home color Printer, look in the application and you should be able to find an option.

If you can't find one then Scan the doc and print it in B/W, color might cause confusion between original and copy

You can print the forms off of the USCIS website but make sure they are in black and white.

Am talking of copies of Passports, Birth-date evidence and Marriage certificates. I failed to mention that my black ink cartridge is out of ink. The color one is working and thus prints out whats black and whats coloured. So the forms are all properly printed since they are black. Its the other documents that are colored. I read on the USCIS website that they will retain any original document that is sent with the application. So i guess they shouldnt be confused on that front. I just wanted to know if its OK to send out colored copies, which in a way are more clear.

All of my supporting documents were printed in coloured, and ofcourse those were not colored were printed in black. Anyways, it will be a lot nicer if all of your supporting documents will be printed in coloured. As long as all copies were clear and not altered, you'll be fine.

Thank You JhunJhun! Thats all there was to it....Appreciate your help. I have another question, if you would be able to help. Since my spouse is sponsoring me for the AOS. I was wondering how long does she have to continue to work. If she quits while my case is being processed, will that affect my case. She is expecting and wants to spend sometime at home. I am currently not working here, but financially sound enough to satisfy any criteria. Would you care to advise.

If your applying for your AOS and your wife is your petitioner, I would advice you that your wife must continue working until you'll be approved for green card. Affidavit of support is one of the initial evidence that required when adjusting status. Your wife needs to provide her tax return from 3 previous years and possible include her employment letter from her employer and 6 months pay stubs if you think this will help a lot. For instance, if she quits her job while your AOS is on process and everything is running smoothly, it might affect or may be not but it's better to be safe. If USCIS asked both of you to appear for an initial interview, employment status of your wife will be or will not be asked but it really depends. I just received my notice to appear for an initial interview....USCIS asked my wife to bring her pay stubs for the past 2 months and letters from each current employer, verifying current rate of pay and average weekly hours. If possible ask your wife to continue working while your AOS is on process.

She is expecting. It gets harder by the day. I can understand that its initial evidence and the case depends on it, but am not sure for how long can she continue. AOS can be decided in 2 months and in many cases, i have seen people running from pillar to post for years. Also, I wanted to know if the employment letter is essential at this stage. I have mentioned her last three years tax returns and attached the most recent Tax returns file to the application. Along with that I have attached bank statements(hers & mine), copies of her last three months pay-stubs, Her business card, proof of equity holdings, that i own abroad. Should this be enough for now.

If I were your wife, I must continue working for a little while until AOS interview is done. . Our interview date was scheduled nxt month and it's only takes about 87 days from date of filing. As long as your wife's income for 2008 is above the poverty line, you'll be fine. I've read a lot of posts about RFE requesting for employment letter and pay stubs...I believe employment of letter is critical at this point. i don't know about the case of others that takes for years but for us it takes only not even 3 months to be eaxact. I think proof of equity holdings abroad will not be counted that you owned (i'm not sure about this?). If you have a lot of money in your US bank account that will cover the poverty line that will be alright but USCIS wants to see continues income.......

Jhunjhun,

You are right. It would be a hassle to prove equity holdings and account balances abroad, but I just mentioned those in the Affidavit of Support since it was optional. But She is way above the poverty line on her own. You are right about the continous source of income. I am non-functional since I can't accept employment prior to authorization. Don't want to mess up my case than it already is. I got married within a week of my arrival here in the US on a Visitors visa and to prove that i had no intention of adjusting status would be close to impossible. I have been visiting US occassionally and intented to get married back home. But certain events just compelled me to go right ahead. I dont know whether I am even eligible to file for AOS with a reasonable expection of being accepted.

Theres some relief for me. But i have been scared soooo much on this forum that I am absolutely confused now. Still have no choice but to apply now and let fate takes its course. Do you think I stand a chance without harrassment?
