K2 Adjustment of Status Questions

21 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am preparing to file the AOS paperwork for my Finance (K1) and her Son (K2). But I have some clarifying questions regarding the K2. I am filing for both at the same time.

 

  • Does the K-2 have an A-Number? Is it the same as the K-1/parent? 
  • Does the K-2 have an I-94 or is this the same as the K-1/parent? I searched online but no record was found.
  • How do we answer the Applicants Statement in Part 10? The application is for a 5-year old.

 

 

Thank you!

If CBP didn't write it on or near his K-2 visa then put "Unknown."

You can contact a CBP Deferred Inspection Site: https://www.cbp.gov/contact/ports/deferred-inspection-sites Or you could just put "Unknown."

Select 1.a. You or your wife signs in box 6.a.

  • Does the K-2 have an A-Number?Eventually after applying for AOS. See below Is it the same as the K-1/parent? NO  The K2 is assigned an Alien # (A-Number) after filing for AOS. On the NOA1s for AOS/AP/EAD and biometrics notice, Upon receipt, we saw that my stepson (K2) had been assigned an Alien# on all of the associated AOS forms receipts.
  • Does the K-2 have an I-94 (YES) or is this the same as the K-1/parent?(NO) I searched online but no record was found. If no I-94 is found for the K2, you will have to go a CBP Deferred Inspection Station, and get that rectified. Bring all of your travel documents, contact CBP for further details. Refer to link: https://www.cbp.gov/contact/ports/deferred-inspection-sites
  • How do we answer the Applicants Statement in Part 10? The application is for a 5-year old. Refer to page 5 of the Form I-485 instructions,  https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/form/i-485instr.pdf

 

 

Thank you!

Good luck on your immigration journey.

And shoot...I just went to CBP for my wife's I94 and didn't think to get my sons. :) Another trip to San Diego I guess.

Does the child have the entrance stamp in the passport?  Typically what the CBP does is stamp the passport and circle the admission status on the Visa.  This should be sufficient evidence of dates and class of entry that the i94 would do ad well


YMMV

Is the K2 AOS fee benefitting from concurrent submission with th K1?  If so, same submission package


YMMV

Yes, he does have the admissions stamp. But the Form does ask for the I94 number as well as the name as it is written on the I94. And I am supposed to attach a copy of the I94.

Yes. Particularly around the Affidavit of Support. I will include in the same folder then.

Actually I was thinking more about the almost $400 filing fee discount if the k2 adjusts at the same time as the k1 (age dependent)

I saw that the cost for the K2 AOS is $750. Is it different if I file together?

 

EDIT: That is the cost for filing with the parent.

Good that you were familiar with CBP, sometimes they can be the sticky wicket in the mix. My stepson copied his mother's info on his I-94 (then it was paper). So, the next day after their POE, I was looking over their docs, and noticed that his I-94 had the same info as hers, DOB, visa#, etc... We had to go down to CBP deferred inspection and get that corrected that day. It would have likely caused problems later on. Granted there were a lot of folks doing their POE at that time, but I would have thought that the CBP office would have caught that....oh well, alls well that ends well. 

 

Wow, it seems like last century, but it was only 7 years ago.....

When we did my family's AOS package, we filed them together. I have included redacted copies both cover letters for your review. I used the cover letters as check-off lists for each applicant, and 2-hole punched all of the papers and used 2-hole binder clips for each packet to keep everything together. I suppose the fees have changed. The AOS process went off without major glitches, except for the jerk immigration officer that conducted our AOS interview at the Seattle USCIS Field office. He gave us lemons and we made lemonade......

 

HTH.

 

Good luck.
