Help with my AOS, EAD and travel auth?

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Okay so I'm just adjusting my status at the moment and i'm confused. I'm including the EAD and travel authorisation into this and it seems as though visajourney guide only tell me the evidence to submit for the AOS rather than EAD and travel auth. Do i only submit two passport photo specifications or is it about 6 passport photo specifications for the other two forms? I'm confused :( Please help! thanks

each form is treated separately. So if each form requires 2 photos....then it is 6 for AOS, EAD and AP.

The VJ guide is great but some info is outdated/not included so always double check with USCIS requirements, there is a list of evidence needed on the USCIS website

AOS application will be bigger and may need a bulldog clip. Try this list but read the latest instructions to the forms because I haven't double checked this

 

I-485 (Adjustment of Status)

  • Photographs (2) of immigrant (passport type)
  • Photocopy of birth certificate of immigrant with translation
  • Photocopy of passport biographical page and K1 visa page (immigrant)
  • Form G-325A Biographic Information Sheet (immigrant)
  • Form I-864 Affidavit of Support (by USC) with photocopies of supporting documents: This varies by each applicant so here's generic suggestions: 
  • Employment letter
  • 3 tax returns including copies of W2s (Photocopy) or IRS tax transcripts (photocopy) Only 1 year is required
  • six recent pay stubs (Photocopy)
  • (If needed)Form I-864 Affidavit of Support (by Co-sponsor) with photocopies of supporting documents:
  • Proof of co-sponsors citizenship/status, ie US birth certificate, bio page of passport, naturalization papers, or LPR status

It's a start to help you organize. Read the instructions to verify.

 

Sorry the items under the Affidavit of Support were indented further as subcategories of that I-864 form, but didn't paste that way.
