Help me to clarify a few answers on I-485 and I-130 please!

Filed: AOS (pnd) Country: Canada

I posted this in another section of the VJ forum, but I thought maybe I would have some better luck in this section of VJ.

Maybe i'm over-thinking some of these simple questions, but i sure could use some help to clarify a few things. any help is very much appreciated!

FORM I-130

When I had entered the US on my student visa, the officer made an error and stamped my passport with an M1 visa. Sevis called my school and I had to go to immigration to work this out. They ripped out my I-94 and replaced it with a new one. They wrote notes detailing the correction to an F1 visa.

On the old (original) I-94 there was a stamp showing my initial entry and a recent visit back to Canada (March 2010).

Now my passport only shows 1 stamp on my new I-94 - my original date of entry as a student, into the US. Should I list the original date as my last date of entry? Or should I list the date of my last entry into the US that I know if (March, 2010) even tho it is not reflected in my passport...?

What is an A#? I know this is an Alien # but is it the same as my I-94 number? Or, how do I find my A#?

FORM I-485

Part 2 - reason why I am filing for I-485 Choice A-J

I'm not sure what to check off here? I'm not Cuban so none of those options apply to me. I'm Canadian, originally in the States on an F1 and now my husband and I are married... I've chosen option A by ruling out all of the others that do not apply to me. Does this seem right?

What is a Non-Immigrant #? Where can I find this number?

How do I know which Consulate issued me my student visa? I mailed my documents in from Canada and paid SEVIS, then they mailed me my receipts. At the airport in Montreal, the US immigration officer completed my I-94 and stapled it into my passport.

The only numbers i can see on any of my documents include a 11 digit number (Admission #) on my I-94 and I also have a SEVIS number (student #)

Thanks for the help! If you need more background on me, read my post "Student married.. Now what?!" http://www.visajourn...rried-now-what/
