Hi guys I have a few questions for I-485 for AOS.

1. Do I really need to get the U.S. Social Security Number before submitting the AOS? I'll be 3 months in June 13. And will get married June 1st.

2. What is the A#? and where can I find it? And How many digits is this?

3. Where can I find the I-94#. I have my I-94 but I am just confused which one is the I-94 number. There are numbers in front of the form that says Admission Number and there are also numbers at the back which the Immigration Officer wrote at my POE.

4. Where can I find the expiration date of my I-94?

5. How can I answer the question in Part 3 of I-485 " Place of Last Entry Into the United States"?

6. In filling up all the forms I-485, G325A, I-131, I-765, Can I Capitalized all the letters or only the first letter of the word/name?

7. And how many copies of all the forms should I submit?

Please Help me with this everyone.. Thanks and any help would be appreciated. God Bless us All!! :)

sorry but I have no idea if you can file
AOS
without SSN.

if you are K1 holder, I strongly recommend you to file
AOS
until I-94 expiration(3 months from POE).

this is not a regulation though, a delay could affect your interview in a bad way.

(actually my hubby's co-worker got in trouble by delay of filing)

2. What is the A#? and where can I find it? And How many digits is this?

A#(alien registration number) is on your visa, below your petitioner name(A000 000 000)

3. Where can I find the I-94#. I have my I-94 but I am just confused which one is the I-94 number. There are numbers in front of the form that says Admission Number and there are also numbers at the back which the Immigration Officer wrote at my POE.

I-94# is the admission number(9 digits + 2 digits) on front.

4. Where can I find the expiration date of my I-94?

Under the entry stamp, there's a date in hand writing by the immigration officer.

5. How can I answer the question in Part 3 of I-485 " Place of Last Entry Into the United States"?

the name of city and state you flew to(e.g Los Angeles, CA.)

6. In filling up all the forms I-485, G325A, I-131, I-765, Can I Capitalized all the letters or only the first letter of the word/name?

I used all letter capital only for my maiden name(to emphasize last name because my name is exotic). and the other was all in first letter capital.

7. And how many copies of all the forms should I submit?

it depends on individuals.

1. No. But you need a SSN to be added to some things and so it's better you just apply for it now. You don't HAVE to, but it'll be good to have.

2. On the NOA2 (petition approval notice) from your K1. Above the beneficiaries name.

3. It's the admission number

4. They stamped your passport at POE and wrote a date in it

5. Where did you last enter the US? That is your answer.

6. I did all CAPS

7. Read the instructions. See also the AOS thread in my signature.

Your co-worker probably waited a crazy amount of time, OR didn't arrive on a K1 visa, OR just got a mean IO. Waiting isn't usually a problem.

2. What is the A#? and where can I find it? And How many digits is this?

A#(alien registration number) is on your visa, below your petitioner name(A000 000 000)
No. This can also be the the PETITIONERS A number if they are a naturalised USC. Trust ONLY the NOA2

Thanks Vanessa&Tony.

That's good to know even for me.

And Yes, the immigration officer was maybe extremely mean :(

The co-worker's wife was a K1 holder.

They mailed their papers by over-night express mail, and USCIS received it just on the day her I-94 expired.

but still, the officer asked them to explain why they were late to file in the interview time.

Yep sounds like a mean IO... or a dumb one... I filed 4 months later and was approved without interview. Some people file a year or so late (not a good idea being out of status that long but things happen) and they have no problems.
