Concurrent I-130 and I-485 package question?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

i am about ready to file my AOS Marriage based GC but I can't seem to figure out the I-130 and I-485 package. 

 

Are the I-130/I-131A and I-485/I-864 supposed to be completely separate or more like one package if I am filing concurrently? I know my I-765 and I-131 will be filed separate, but we have friends who filed concurrently and got approved and sent it as one package but then I keep seeing people online file like below, my biggest question is do I need to include all that in the I-130A if I'm including it in the I-485, and I've seen people include their EADs in I-485 but I'm including it in my  I-765 and I-131 too. I don't want too submit too many duplicates...

Mmm, ok, you can file concurrently I-130 with I-485, by doing that you do not have to pay the fees for the travel permit (I-131) and the work permit (I-765)

 

You have to options: 

 

1) You can send all together in one big envelope, but separating every application, like the I-130, then the I-485 with the I-864 and I-944 if needed, then the I-131 and I-765.

 

2) You file I-130 online, then you get a NOA form I-797 that you must attach to the package with the I-485 and all that.

 

I just mailed both together, I-130 with my AoS application (I-485).

 

I hope it's clear. You can ask otherwise, but anyway there are a lot of threads and guides in VJ where this is explained

Thanks, yes I'm aware there are no fees for EAD & AP if you file before Oct.2 where the fees are going up and they are not waiving these anymore when filing together, and USCIS says not to include I-94

4 after July 31st so I am not including it.  I am mailing my stuff together, but my question still stands.

 

Does the I-130A need this stuff? Cause I've seen people do both?

True, right now you do not need to include the I-944.

 

I paste here from my cover letter all that I included in the form I-130, and this include the I-130A as well. Let's say that I-130A is part of the I-130. I did not get any RFE! I hope this helps

 

1.     Form G-1450 Authorization for Credit Card Transactions, Payment in the Amount of $535

2.     Form G-1145 E-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance

3.     Form I-130 Petition for Alien Relative, signed and dated by Petitioner

4.     Form I-130A Supplemental Information for Spouse Beneficiary, signed and dated by Beneficiary

5.     Two (2) passport-type photos of Petitioner

6.     Two (2) passport-type photos of Beneficiary

7.     Marriage Certificate

8.     Copy of Petitioner’s Passport (Biographical Page)

9.     Copy of Petitioner’s Birth Certificate

10.  Copy of Beneficiary’s Passport (Biographical Page)

11.  Copy of Beneficiary’s Birth Certificate and certified English translation

12. Envelope with Evidence of Bona Fide Marriage

I just re read the Instructions for I-130/I-130A and none of the Beneficiary's  Passport (Biographical Page) or  Copy of Beneficiary’s Birth Certificate and certified English translation is needed. 

 

I'm just stressing for no reason now... I just need to submit.

We didn't submit all that attached to the I-130A - It's easy to overthink and stress this process - Follow the guides here or search the forums for cover letter, you will see how people organized theirs.
