AOS Checklist

  • Cover Letter listing Table of Contents
  • (Check Payable to U.S. Department of Homeland Security - $1,225.00)

 

Form I-485 (completed and signed by non-US Citizen/beneficiary)

  • Form G-1145 
  • Form I-944 (Declaration of Self-Sufficiency with applicable supporting documents.)
  • Copy of beneficiary's Passport with biographical page

  • Copy of NOA2 Approval letter (from K1 process) 
  • I-94 
  • Copy of beneficiary's Birth Certificate 
  • translation of birth certificate (if needed)
  • Certified copy of Marriage License 
  • Passport Photos (2) name written on the back 
  • Copy of DS-3025 

 

Form I-864 (completed and signed by USC) (goes with form I-485)

  • Proof of USC's citizenship (copy of birth certificate, copy of passport bio page, or other)
  • 2019, 2018 (optional), and 2017 (optional) Tax Return (with W-2) or Transcripts (transcripts are better if you can get them)
  • Employment Verification letter (updated one - not the one used during K1 process) 
  • Pay stubs (last 3 months) 

 

Form I-765 (completed and signed by non-US Citizen/beneficiary)

  • Copy of beneficiary's Passport with biographical page 
  • Copy of beneficiary's K1 Visa from Passport and entry stamp 
  • I-94 
  • Passport Photos (2) name written on the back 
  • Copy of NOA2 (from K1 process) 

 

Form I-131 (completed and signed by non-US Citizen/beneficiary)

  • Copy of beneficiary's Passport with biographical page 
  • Copy of beneficiary's K1 Visa from Passport and entry stamp 
  • I-94 
  • Passport Photos (2) name written on the back 
  • Copy of NOA2 (from K1 process

 

 

Be sure to double check for the current fees as fees do sometimes increase, so please check. Additionally check the forms as listed above i.e., current version and or edition date, there has been changes to various forms since February 24, 2020. Consider sending tax transcripts instead of the 1040, and W2's. Also consider preparing a cover letter for each form in addition to the main cover letter.

 

Make sure you send long form birth certificates and not the short form. IMPORTANT: Form I-944 has quite a bit of supporting documents that go with it depending on your situation, be sure to read the instructions for this form carefully. Many people have gotten a RFE for this form so be sure to pay CLOSE attention when filing it out. Hope this helps in your preparation of your AOS. When in doubt ask questions.

 

Please consider filing the I-131 and the I-765 even if you don't think you'll need them right now. You never know what changes your life will have on down the road, so I recommend you file these two forms from the start. There is no extra charge to file them with your AOS and it's much much easier to submit them all at once.

Just thought that I should add that people filing after July 29th currently do not have to submit the I-944. But this can change at any time so please keep up to date and check the USCIS website! 

Ahh yes that's right the new injunction, but you are right it can change at any time. Thank you! Going to try to see if I can get a mod to delete that I-944 line!

Hi everyone~ I haven't started working on my two AOS applications but I am this week. Our wedding is the 21st and I want to submit as soon as we have done that - we get the certificate the same day so no wait. I am kind of nervous about this as I have seen a lot of delay and RFIE for K2 in particular so I want to get it done before the new fees. Hopefully I will have enough time. I am glad we don't need to do the i-944 anymore. Originally I was unable to file until September as that's when our insurance coverage begins but now at least I can file earlier.

Hi everyone! We're submitting ours tomorrow - looking forward to the journey with y'all! 

 

I'm 50% relieved about no I-944 required, and 50% annoyed at wasted time/money. Oh well... :)

Welcome to the thread, that I-944 was no joke, but I suspect we have not seen the last of it!

I think you're right! I'm ready for it if they ask for it! In the meantime, it will be stored somewhere I won't have to see it :)
