Question about filling US immigration forms

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

 

I'm filing my adjustment of status through marriage to a USC. We are going through an immigration firm to do the filing. Ours is mostly a straightforward case. I'm adjusting from H1B status.

 

We have some questions about filling the forms. We were under the impression that all fields need to be filled out as per the form instructions, including ones that don't apply to our case by writing "N/A" under them. We have seen some reports online about forms being rejected due to blank fields.

 

Our lawyer doesn't seem to concur and says they haven't seen any rejections due to empty fields and they've been doing this for the past several years. I was wondering what the experience of the community has been? Has anyone filed for AOS recently and had any problems with leaving blank fields in the forms.

 

Looking forward to any experiences you can share. Thanks!

Since its straightforward, you can also do-it-yourself (DIY). If you have any questions, you can ask the in the AOS from work visa forum: https://www.visajourney.com/forums/forum/130-adjustment-of-status-from-work-student-amp-tourist-visas/

Note that some fields have a script that doesn't allow letters to be inputed:

You can either disable that script, put another element on top of the field, or hand write it with black ink.
