Lost I-94 15 years ago! Please help!

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon everyone!My name is Maria, and I am a U.S Citizen. I recently married my husband, Eugenio, he came in this country with a tourist visa I-94 and has lost it. He came to the U.S about 15 years ago and he has no record of his passport or I-94. He dosent have any copies and dosen't remember the exact day he came in. We will apply for a replacement filling Form-102. My question is, do we need to get a lawyer to help us get his I-94? What are the chances of getting a replacement since its been so long ago? Will filling this application affect him since he overstayed? Any help will be greatly appreciated. God bless everyone! :help:

Your interview took 67 days from your I-129F NOA1 date.

AOS was approved in 2 months and 8 days without interview.

your spouse should at least remember what year and month they entered the US. If he doesn't remember a thing I-102 will be a waste of time and money as they will need additional proof. My 2 cents advice is to FOIA his records and visa. Am in the same boat and seems like the wait is around 6-8 months to get your information back, and with him not remembering anything might take even longer.

Please tell him to be honest with you. You both already said 'I do' if he came in without inspection he should just break down and tell you the truth, if he came in with inspection he should remember something...year month because that would help with research.

Good luck.

When it comes to AOS, it's up to the beneficiary to prove that he entered the U.S. with inspection. Since this is a key requirement for this kind of petition to be approved, your husband will need to bend over backward to prove that. If he lost his passport and the I-94 and doesn't remember when exactly he entered the U.S., you may have a problem.

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.
