I hope someone can help me with this because I am totally lost.

I am putting together the i-485 package right now. I am a Canadian citizen married a US citizen and I crossed the boarder in Buffalo as a visitor.

I need to provide some kind of proof or evidence that I entered legally, but I never received a i-94 form or any kind of stamp in my passport when entering. Apparently they used to be like that with canada/usa boarder.

Yes, I have checked online for the i-94 and nothing comes up there, it doesn't even show me my travel history.

I also called the Port of Entry here in Jacksonville, FL and they were of no help.

What do I do??? Do I have to write a letter? Or request this information somewhere? Or does the USCIS have this information?

Oh also, I am filing as an overstay, so thats another reason I guess why i couldnt get a new i-94 or anything.

Please help me

Thank you!!!!

You don't get an I-94 when you enter US (from Canada) as a visitor. You only get the stamp (card attached to your passport) when you present your SEALED (approved) paperwork from the US Consulate to the border agent.

If you entered the US specifically to get married to a US citizen then you probably entered illegally.

Thank you for your response.

I came in as a visitor and at that time i didnt know if i was going to stay. I didnt have any paperwork.

But i already sent in my i485, i was told there is no evidence needed, since uscis knows that Canadians entering usa dont get i94 or even stamps often.

As long as you didn't lie at POE, you won't get in trouble for having gotten married and doing AOS. Your situation changed after you entered the country and you are now married to a USC so your overstay is forgiven and if you meet all other requirements, your AOS should be fine.
