i-130 Employment History - Company Acquisition

I'm baaaaaaacccckkkkk!!

 

I'm filling out the employment history section for the i-130 right now. The company I've worked for since September 2015 was acquired by another last summer. However, we were only issued a single W2 for 2018 as the company that acquired us kept us in the same payroll system to simplify our taxes (we'll get W2s from the acquiring company for 2019).

 

So... possible options for my employment history:

1. List Company A from 09/2015 - 07/2018 (when we were acquired) and Company B from 07/2018 - present

2. List company A from 09/2015 - 01/01/2019 and Company B from 01/01/2019 to present

3. Just list Company A from 09/2015 - present

4. Just list Company B from 09/2015 - present (this feels the most incorrect)

 

 

Do any of these options seem the most correct? I previously consulted with an attorney, and she said to list both if I received 2 W2s, but I only got one.... I imagine I could also provide an explanation in Part 9, yes?

You have worked for your present company the entire time mentioned.  Use the current company name.  Use a current pay stub from that company as evidence of current income.  Make sure the foreign spouse can explain it was an acquisition.  Simple stuff.  Truth wins.

I'm not from Spokane.  It's just where the nearest local USCIS office was, at that time.
