:help: I need help completing I-485.

Quick summary of my story;

I entered in 1997, passport got lost along with I-94.

I FOIA'd my records, received them but they only state my arrival date and Admission # and NO VISA #

Really appreciate your help!


Part 1 (information about you)

A) I-94 #;

Is that the same as Admission #? It is a 11 digit number

Part 2 (application type)

a) I am applying for adjustment to permanent residence because;

???? (I don't know which one to choose)

Part 3 (processing info)

a) Non immigrant visa #;

Passport stolen, have no copy of passport and FOIA doesn't state my visa #

I FOIA'd my records with the state too and have not received them yet

b) Date Visa Issued;

I do not have that info as my passport was stolen what should I put there?

If I don't have this information will my application be kicked back??

I intend on sending a copy of my FOIA'd records from the State along with my package.

Thank you so much everyone ! :)
