Question on Adjustment of Status after marriage

My wife and me got married last month and we are filing for my adjustment of status. I came in as an F-1 Student. I would appreciate if you could help me with some questions I have about the forms.

1. On the form I-130 line 22. (Your relative is in the united states and will apply for adjustment of status to that of lawful permanent resident at the USCIS office in:). We live in Atlanta, Georgia and we will file the I-130 together with the form I-485 to the Chicago POBox. Does anyone know what USCIS office I have to put on that line?

2. Where does the notary stamp goes on the I-864 Affidavit of Support? Right next to the Petitioner's Signature?

Thank you.

The I-864 doesn't need to be notarized.

And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times

It's you, it's you, You make me sing.

You're every line, you're every word, you're everything.

I put NY, NY on line 22 on my I-130 as I live in NYC and the USCIS office in NYC will be dealing with my application.

I would assume you would put Atlanta, Georgia on your line 22 as that is the local USCIS office that would be dealing with your application once it goes to Chicago.

Welcome to Visajourney - I agree with my pre-posters here that you don't need to notarize your affidavit of support. If you're still having doubts about your local office, you can also check here: https://egov.uscis.gov/crisgwi/go?action=offices.type&OfficeLocator.office_type=LO

Feel free to post any questions along the way, we're happy to share our thoughts, knowledge and opinions (I see you are adjusting from F-1, so did I :))

Good luck on your adjustment journey!!

This is not in regards to your original post but a few thoughts:

1. How long have you been in the US prior to marriage? (this would be a possible issue if the time was short, but not an issue if you have been here for a few years already.)

2. Does your F-1 have a home-rule stipulation?

Good luck! :thumbs:

I have been studying in US for 3 and a half years we dated 2 years before getting married. I'm currently doing my OPT.

What do you mean by Home-Rule Stipulation???
