Good Afternoon everyone!

I wanted to post on a subject that has kept my wife and I in a little stress for a while now. We are filing for our I-485 right now and finishing up everything to send in Monday. Well on this guide:

http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1k3aos

It states that you need to have a copy of your I-94 form, front and back, that you received from customs and border protection. However as it seems, new immigrants are not receiving this. The I-94 form is now online and electronic. You can find your number and all at:

https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/request.html

This will allow you to print off a copy of this page. If you are filing for the AoS (I-485), attache this page that you printed off of your electronic I-94 and attach it with a copy of your visa and entry stamp page. Send this in with your I-485 package and you should be good to go. I got off the phone with USCIS on this matter about not having a I-94 and she assured me that it is now electronic and it is ok that she did not receive a paper copy of her I-94.

I wanted to post this in case someone will notice and change the guide to reflect this. It caused me some headache and heartache as trying to google and find out about obtaining a lost I-94 form was going to cost in the hundreds and take up to 3 months. I hope this helps someone and they find a little relief in my hunt for the I-94 forms.

This is correct about the I-94 and some of the information on VJ needs to be updated to reflect such, but even with such recent changes, fellow VJer's, such as yourself, have been very helpful about clearing up some of the confusion with the ever changing immigration process and I thank you for posting this. smile.png

P.S. My wife arrived from Ukraine this past July, on a K-1, and we live in Milton, just in case you wish to talk sometime.

Good luck to the two of you on this journey. smile.png

That would be great! I take my wife up to Milton/Federal Way for the Eruo Meat and Deli store. It would be great to talk with you sometime!

Just a heads up that the I-94 only needs to be submitted for K-1 Visa holders and those seeking asylum doing AOS. Marriage based AOS do not need the I-94. I know VJ is heavily based on K and IR visas, but for most other AOS types you do not need the I-94. See page 4 of the I-485 instructions.
