Hey, I'm looking to file this month, did you guys use the tax return papers that say H&R Block?

I guess you already have your answer on this, but I absolutely agree with Celie.  Those tax transcripts are soooo simple.   If you use copes of the 1040, you need to include all attachments and w2's.   Not so with the transcripts.  I also appreciate that they don't spell out all your personal info like SSN, name, address on the transcripts.  Super simple to retrieve them online too.  My hard copy taxes are in another state, so that is another advantage to the transcripts.....availability.  Good luck !!

Our lawyer sent the i-485 package on July 5th 2019 with medicals, etc.

We are located in Miami. Wife is adjusting her status, family based (married to a US citizen).

Miami office is taking something between 19 and 33 months.

There is a Miami office?    I'm a Florida resident, but according this this link, we're filing through Chicago.............I-129F applicant.   I don't see Miami on this link.

https://www.uscis.gov/i-485-addresses

 

Hoping we're not on the 19-33 month schedule.   Anyone have an idea how long for combo card through Chicago?

i'll just reprint all the forms.. thanks.. anyone used money order for their payment? I have chicago illinoi lockbox.. 

When my wife did the medical for the K-1 in Thailand, she had to use the DOS approved hospital.   However, there was no list of approved facilities for vaccines, which she completed prior to the medical.     She used the local Red Cross., and then the hospital doing her medical provided a completed DS-3025.

I'm just curious if anyone is aware of the following SAVE site.   If so, has anyone been successful using it to determine if the information has been successfully synced in the SAVE system?   (for applying for SSN)

My Husband arrived on the K1 Visa and we had been trying to get a SSN as now it seems like we're doing fine. We applied from Tennessee.

I checked the site and I see this: c2fbedfb82a64e4962418fd0dd44c6ea.png

I'm not sure what step/status is this in.

Use this link to find your local office :)

https://www.uscis.gov/about-us/find-uscis-office/field-offices

 

 

Chicago is the lockbox (much like the Dallas lockbox for K1), then they go to Missouri to get distributed and processed (hence the case numbers start with MSC - Missouri Service Center), then after everything is verified AOS goes to your local office (the one from the link above) and the EAD and go/stay (since it's also in Missouri) to the National Benefits Center.

I checked the SAVE site also (my husband has had his SS card for a month now) and that's the status it shows, so I'm assuming this means it's already been verified by DHS and sent back to the SSA. So, if you haven't gotten your SS card yet, I'm assuming you should soon.

Thank you, I've been told by the SSA on the phone that it's in the manual verification process last week so it seem like it's all set now and wait for 1-2 more weeks and we'll see. Awesome!

Not sure if its just my computer put did anyone have issues filling out Form I-864? Wont let me type in certain spaces such as current employment information and income? Page 4 and 5. Thanks. 

Were you using the current version of Adobe Acrobat Reader (USCIS does not test forms in anything else)?

And did you make sure you filled out any related questions that might affect whether or not a question was relevant?
