I-485 Question (Wife Previously Held J1 VISA)

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So almost done with the paperwork part and going through the process of obtaining the required documentation for my Spouse’s adjustment of status.

 

she was an aupair from August 2016 until April 2018 on a J-1 visa.

 

since then she has always traveled and visited on her B2 tourist visa.

 

we are now married and I got to this question on the I-485:

 

”13. Documentation Regarding J-1 or J-2 Exchange Visitor Status
If you previously held or currently hold J-1 (principal) or J-2 (dependent) nonimmigrant exchange visitor status, you must submit copies of all relevant Forms IAP-66 and/or Forms DS-2019, Certificate of Eligibility for Exchange Visitor (J-1) Status, ever issued to you (if available). You must also submit copies of all available J-1 or J-2 nonimmigrant visas issued to you, and copies of all available Form I-94 and passport pages with entry stamps showing your admission to the United States in J-1 or J-2 status.”

 

 

I imagine this applies to us unless it is in reference to someone who overstayed their J1 as “previously having”. The old visa itself and passport Pages she still has back in her home country. However the sponsor would have the IAP-66 and the DA-2019. If it’s the host family I imagine it’s gone, or is it something the Au Pair Conpany would have? Or can I obtain it from the USCIS?

 

Anyone been through a similar situation or have any insight?

Yes, it does. It doesn’t say if you overstayed.
