IAP-66 Carbon Copy is Hard to Read

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

I mentioned in another thread that my fiancée and I are planning to be married in June, and then file AOS paperwork. She's 9 years overstayed on a J-1, but hasn't had any run-ins with the law, or anything like that, so aside from the overstay, she's in pretty good shape. The thing is, her passport expired in 2004. At that time, she went to the Czech embassy, and got a new passport issued, but they took her old one, so we don't have her entry stamp anymore. We do have her I-94, and the carbon copy of her IAP-66, but I'm not sure how big of a deal it will be to not have the entry stamp/passport page.

I'd feel a lot better about things if it weren't for the fact that her IAP-66 is a bit of a mess, in that the information entered doesn't quite line up with the lines/boxes it's supposed to be tied to. Everything seems to be too high, and to the right. It's this way for much of the page (boxes 2, 4, 5, and 7, so it seems like the stack of carbons wasn't lined up quite right. As a result, the "x" for "is not subject to the two year residence requirement" floats above the ( ) for that x. There are no floating marks above/around the "government financing" "Exchange visitor skills list" or "PL 94 484 as amended" boxes that would be checked if the "is subject based on" box had been intended, but we really want to be sure we've got things right.

I called her au pair program, who assured me that the funds for the program are paid entirely by the host family, and there is no government money (from either government) for their au pairs. The woman I spoke to also promised to look for their copy of the IAP-66, but warned me that they probably don't have that anymore, since it's been so long.

It doesn't seem like she'd be subject under the skills list, either, since the Czech Republic was removed from the skills list in 1997, and her skill (as an au pair) wasn't on the list anyway.

Is there anything we should be looking for/doing to help confirm that she's not subject to the 212(e) HRR? Do we essentially have to prove that she's not subject, or will this evidence, such as it is, simply serve to confirm what they'll already know (so we don't have to make a case so much as substantiate what's already believed to be true)?

Can the au pair program provide any help even if they can't find the form, maybe a statement that there was no government funding, or something like that?

According to the form, a copy of the form was provided to USIA at that time. Can they possibly be of any help?
