Getting married with a b2 is not the smartest decision, that's why we have k1 and cr1 visas. Have this in mind cause this situation may raise some eyebrows during your AoS interview. Anyways, you current status is B2 visa holder. K1 visas and cr1 visas ( fiance and spouse visas) have this numbers, that's why they are asking them. If your current visa doesnt have a RED numbers you should leave it in blank.

And yes, you are an immediate relative of a US citizen

wow some people on this forum are ILL INFORMED and plain asshats.

PART 1..you should put B2 Touring Visa

PART 2..you should select option a. if you are applying, you obviously are sending the form I-130 petition application. READ the question and then READ option a. you ARE an immediate relative of a US Citizen, therefore you are filing the I-130 concurrently and it will make a visa number immediately available to you( even tho spouses of US Citizens DO NOT NEED A VISA )

I was just approved and was registered as a permanent resident yesterday. And i my friend was here on a B2 Visa. DO NOT listen to those that say they "raise an eyebrow" about it. Its really simple, if you came here and had GENUINE intentions of leaving and you are GENUINELY in love etc, you will have no problems. This will be made evident by the "evidence" you have such as joint bank accounts, bills with your names on it, a child together, pictures of you two with friends, family, and at places etc. Theres all kinds of things you can submit as evidence, dig deep, facebook messages to each other, cards, love letters, the list goes on and on. follow instructions to the T and you will do just fine. If you have any questions what soever feel free to message me or whatever. GOOD LUCK!

The answer is YES. Baja, to be successful in this process you need to read accurately and interpret literally. if it asks you if you were in the army, and you were in the army, then you say YES. Don't make things hard,you must answer the question. Take some time and answer the questions calmly.

thank you Simon, so if i write down on part 2 : B2 which expiration date should i write my visa expiration as on my passport or the expiration date stamped on my i-94???

thank you again...

I-94.

This little white paper is your friend, pal, comrade and buddy. Go by the date on that one. It is your arrival/departure record and it determines the (lawful) duration of your stay. And keep it safe in your passport, you'll be needing it for your AOS interview.

thank you so much guys, henry so you would recommend that since my K1 visa number are not in RED i should leave it in blank or i should right "B1" and the expiration date on the next space?

Thank you...

No, no ...the visa number is the ONE listed in red in the visa.... You dont have a k1 visa you hava an tourist visa which is way different. A k1 is a visa granted to a foreign fiance of a us citizen. Your tourist visa should have a number which is NOT the control number... The visa num is in red.
