As I am reading the guides of AOS I have a few questions. 
 

1.  What is the evidence: inspection and admission or inspection and parole?

2. Form I-797 is the petition approval (I-130)?

3. What is evidence of continuously maintaining lawful status since arrived in the US

4.  Am I filing forms I-944 and I-864 aswell? 
 

thanks so much! 
background; I am the Canadian beneficiary here in the US with my US husband. We already filed the I-130 last week online and now I want to Adjustbstatus.

Recommended to file AOS without I-944 ASAP before USCIS reimplements that requirement.

The person above told

me I-94 is the answer to my question 1 and 3.  If I’m not filing this form what do am I sending in as evidence?

 

never-mind two separate forms   Got it. Thanks!

I am the Canadian beneficiary adjusting status in the US. My husband, dual (Canadian and US) and i lived in Canada together up until November 2019 when he moved here to Florida. He started and registered  the business in January 2020.  What do we do?  He makes over 100k$/year.  His dad lives here aswell and is a Vietnam veteran. Do we have to use his dad as a sponsor? 
My husband didn’t have any US income for the last couple of years because he was living and working in Canada.   Do we show Canadian tax transcripts?  Are we allowed to show both of our bank accounts to show money saved? 
thanks so much!

Sounds to me like you need a qualified joint sponsor....Canada tax transcripts are useless to show current US employment.  You can show evidence of liquid assets using the I-864.

Technically, your husband should have been filing US taxes anyway because he's a US citizen. File those now with a US tax accountant because USCIS requires tax transcripts for AoS.

Just to be clear, the point was that US citizens must report world-wide income.......regardless of where they live and regardless of where the income was earned.

Yes he has filed his US taxes even though he was in Canada. My point is he doesn’t have US income for the last 3 years.  Therefore I will need to use my father in law as a sponsor?
