I came in on B2 visa and now AOS based on marriage. I read through the guide and USCIS website and the forms I am required to file are Forms I-130, I-130A, I-131, I-485, I-864, I-765, I-944. My questions are

1)      In care of, should that be my name, the name of my spouse or should I leave it blank (we live together?

2)      In Part 2 of I-485, talked about Form I-797 (receipt or approval notice for underlying petition). Please what does this mean as I do not have any underlying petition?

3)      Form I-864; part 3, #1 we clicked yes (sponsoring the principal immigrant named in part 2), I also have 3 kids born in the US from previous marriage. Should I include their names in the family member section (i.e. #4 to #18)

4)      Am I to attach form G-1145 to all the forms?

5)      Some parts of the forms do not allow me type on or tick, can I use black ink pen on those areas after I print out?

6)      I am still unable to get a credit report. My spouse added me as a user to his credit card but I still cannot generate any credit report. Please any other suggestions?

7)      As regards up to date form, is it the edition date at the left down part or the expiration date at the upper right part one should consider?

 

Thanks

I’m assuming you’re female given you mentioned your spouse added you to “his” credit card.. may I ask if your current husband is a USC or not, and when you entered on the B2? 

 

The way your questions read it sounds that you’ve been here for a considerable amount of time without legal status given you’ve given birth to 3 children in the US already without ever holding a green card? 

 

Ref questions

Q1, leave blank

Q2, NA you’re consecutively filing

Q3,2.. you list them, just tick no box to their migrating as part of the petition. 

Q4, single form, front of application

Q5, print and write in ink

Q6, follow instruction on form, needs a statement to confirm from credit agency

Q7, bottom left

1) If you have no in-care-of name, then you can leave it blank.

2) If you are filing the I-130 + I-485 packets concurrently, no need for this.

3) No, that's asking about other aliens being sponsored on that I-864 (for derivative beneficiaries, which doesn't even apply in your category).

4) Only the I-130, I-485, I-765, and I-131 would use one. Some people provided a single form for all of them, and others provided one for each of those forms. Both tend to work. I did the latter (1 for each form)...less leeway for errors on their part IMO.

5) What form(s) exactly? Some forms have 2D barcodes, and you don't want to mix electronically-completed forms with handwritten information....they'll likely scan the barcode and miss the handwritten information. Some forms do NOT have this barcode, and mixed hand-writing and typed on them is fine.

6) I'll defer to others, but if she has not been in the US long enough to establish a credit history, I personally would just declare that she has none. Getting a letter of having no record is a mixed bag of success, and can take weeks.

If she's been in the US 6, 12, or more months, then I would be mote inclined to get something documented as it is not unreasonable to have a credit score at that point.

How were their births paid for? Privately or via public funds?

I mean I am surprised that CBP officer did not see your pattern of coming on b2 and giving birth to a child three times ? No wonder why current administration is cracking down on this practice.

What does it matter if they were paid for? This is really only a concern if they're using public funds. 

Well, that it's paid for and that they return home.

Thats why you are not a CBP officer. Also go check what B2 visa stands for. Where is it a crime to give birth anywhere in the world as long as you prove you can pay the required bill? People like you are the problem, sit behind your keyboard and judge others for being truthful.

You think if it was a problem the visa officers renewing my visas 3 times wouldn't have seen that? Yes I had my 3 kids in the US, yes I paid all bills in full and yes after each birth, I renewed my visas without any issue, came into the US at every birth and also declared to the CBP officer at the POE my intentions, had my babies and left the US after each birth. You should be answering questions I asked if you can and not deviate. Thank you
