I would put the visa you had, and "out of status" after it if you want. So "X" visa out of status, or just "X" visa. They will know you are out of status if you don't put it there.


AOS for my husband
8/17/10: INTERVIEW DAY (day 123) APPROVED!!

ROC:
5/23/12: Sent out package
2/06/13: APPROVED!

I may not be remembering right, but I believe there is a section where they ask what visa you came under and another place where they asked your status. On the first section, I wrote Visitor and Out of Status in the other.

No.

They want to know how you entered the US, meaning whether you entered by climbing over a fence, via WVP, or a visa, and, in the latter case, which one.

What you write is this: B-2.

Nothing else.


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 did write out of status and my EAD still got approved with no problems. They are aware how you entered since you are asked what kinda visa you entered US with in I-485 form.
