Filing for K1 and K2 simultaneously

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This is one of those questions where how I end up doing it probably doesn't matter, but just in case it does, in case somebody had an experience...

I am filing an AOS (i-485) for a K1 and a K2. I was planning on submitting each package in one envelope and then putting both envelopes into one bigger envelopes.

Then I thought of the cover letter. Should I have two cover letters, one in each envelope, perhaps briefly referencing what's in the other envelope, or just one in the big envelope, stating separately the contents of both K1 AOS envelope and K2 AOS envelope, or maybe even two, both in the big envelope, so that the opener will know right away what's in each smaller envelope.

What should I write on the smaller envelopes? I was thinking of putting down the applicant's names, but perhaps there is something I should put down that will help or something on the opposite I should avoid putting down, so as not to slow the processing?

Last question. If I understand correctly, should we, for example, fail to sign one of the forms or forget to submit some piece of evidence, such as a photocopy of passport, we will not have to repay the filing fee. Is that right? Under what circumstances would we have to repay the filing fee?

I would put both submissions together in one envelope (clipped separately).

If you fail to provide the correct evidence, or signatures, depending on when it's caught, the whole package will be returned (with the original check) or you will get an RFE to fix the issue (payment is cashed) - you will not need to repay the filing fee.

If your package is rejected (denied) - your fee is gone and any future attempts will cost money.


My Advice is usually based on "Worst Case Scenario" and what is written in the rules/laws/instructions. That is the way I roll... -Protect your Status - file before your I-94 expires.

Filed AOS for myself(K1) and my two children(K2)at the same time. The three files were put together in one envelope. We only made one cover letter.However, each case was separately clipped with a paper fastener and we issued one check for each case. This was the instructions of the USCIS as we called the office before we mail the documents.
