Hello Guys. Thank you all for the information you provided. We are doing I 944 right now and on the instruction for it says that we need to provide IRS tax transcript. We tried so many times to get it online and the system can not verify me even I provided everything that was needed. I called IRS and they told me that at the moment there is no other way to get the transcript but online. So do you think its okay If we send the documents without the requested transcript ( we can send 1040 and W2 )? And my second question is about the education part. Which education evaluation services are the fastest ? Thank you!

I-944 isn't needed for IR1/CR1.  What visa are you chasing?  :time:https://www.visajourney.com/timeline/profile.php?id=360512

My wife and I are recently married and I'm filling out all the forms. I don't think you  right? I-944 applies to all new immigrants. It as to be applied along with the I-485 as of February

Nope; definitely not a requirement for IR/CR-1.
There’s the DS-5540, although whether it’s required depends on the embassy. 
but the IR/CR-1 also doesn’t deal with the I-485. 
 

As a note: the CR/IR-1 category is an immigrant visa applied for from outside the US. It sounds like you might be applying from inside the US, given your forms. 
 

that’s why it’s good to fill in your timeline; so people know what information is relevant to you.

For education evaluation we used SpanTran, paid for their 2-day rush service and turnaround was a bit over 24 hours. For the tax transcript I'm not sure, all I can say is the I-944 instructions seem very clear to me that tax transcript is required.

I-944 has to be filled by all IR/CR-1 based green card applicants effective Feb-24-2020. Please see the following link : https://www.uscis.gov/green-card/green-card-processes-and-procedures/public-charge

 

Those who meet certain requirements (i.e. if you have worked more than ~10 years in the US) may not have to fill out an I-944. These requirements are listed in I-485 instructions.

Immigrant visas, e.g., IR/CR, are not processed by USCIS, but the DOS. The link you post applies to adjustment of status and is subject to USCIS. For IVs it is the embassy, and thus DOS, that adjudicates. 

 

To make an assessment on public charge the DOS use DS-5540.
 

Form I-485 does not apply to IV applications from abroad. 
 

note that this was initially posted in the wrong section.

Ah no, he is! But he initially this posted in “our” section! 

I'm somewhat confused now. I am also applying for an adjustment of status (I-130 & I-485) in the US through my wife who is an American citizen. Are you saying that I do not have to submit an I-944?

The confusion arose from this being posted in the wrong section and subsequent confusion about an immigrant visa  versus adjustment of status.

 

You apply for a visa from outside the US. You adjust status from inside the US. 
 

if you adjust status you fill out an I-944. If you apply for a visa you fill out a DS-5540. Both of these refer to the public charge rule. 
 

In your case, you’d fill out an I-944.
