My wife came to US with B2 visa and overstayed for about 4 months. I'm US citizen and We married two months ago. Now I want to help her to adjust her status. I'm not sure to what forms tofill. Do I have to fill any other forms beside I-485 and I-130?

Yea G-325a, I-693 medical examination, I-765 of she wants authorization to work, I-131 if she wants to travel before she gets her GC, I-864 affidavit of support and G-1145(optional) so uscis will inform you when they receive your application. I think that's all

The following forms are needed:

I-130 (Petition for an alien relative),

I-485 (AoS),

I-864 (Affidavit of Support),

2 x G-325a (biographic info for both of you),

I-693 (the medical),

I-765 (work permit—EAD), and

I-131 (Advance Parole—AP).

The latter two are optional but FREE when submitted concurrently with the other forms what you want to do anyway, so absolutely file them!

Also needed is a check for $1,490. Personal check is okay and preferred as it allows you to trace when it was “cashed.”

After about 10 to 12 weeks she will receive a plastic card which now is a combination of work permit (EAD) and Advance Parole (AP). At about the 3 to 5 months mark, you'll have the interview. Thereafter she will receive her “conditional,” 2-year Green Card.


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 would advise against combining the amounts of the checks. Make two separate checks in the amount of $420 (I-130) and (I-485) $1070
