My story is very long, but I will try to make it short!!!!

In June of 07 I came to TN as a Workm and Travel USA participant.

The firs person i met here was my future husbad.

After summer time I went back to Ukraine. We were all the time in touch

till I came back in July of 08, on J-1 again. We were datin and engaged for

18 months. We got married in Februarry and now we want to get my Green Card

and start working again and go to Ukraine and visit my family.

I dont know what box should I check in I-485 Part 2.

I really need your help. Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You need to check:

a. An immigrant petition giving me an immediately available immigrant visa number

that 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.)

You need to either file form I-130 together with the I-485 or attach your approval notice from I-130 if you sent it prior to I-485. I-130 is actually the immigrant petition they are referring to above.

Good luck and congrats on the marriage!

Don't you have a 2-year foreign residence requirement on YOUR J-1 visa? Or did you get a waiver for it?


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

I think Work-and-Travel J-1's don't have the 2-year requirement normally because it's unqualified labor and the participants don't have their college degree yet + it's not government sponsored. None of the three J-1's I've held had it.

But it's always a good idea to check.

As for our country if government pays for your education then you are a subject to 2-year, if you pay then you are not. I knew people who were subjects.

The thing is that most of them know about it and they go back.

Oh!

Thanks for Idea.

Do you know how can I check it?????

It will state on your visa stamp "note". And you can find it on D/S also.
