I arrived on a K1 and am adjusting my status.
I'm just about done putting my AOS, EAD and AP packet together. I have a joint sponsor, so in total, I've got 5 envelopes organised with every form and its required evidence. Each one has a cover letter with my name, A-number and signature.
This is the method of organising everything that made the most sense to me, so that the adjudicator can easily identify what paperwork is being used for which immigration benefit, but does this sound alright to the rest of you? I'm planning to use a heavy clip to just hold all the envelopes together before putting them in a shipping envelope and mailing them...
But here's my next issue. Where do I mail to?
I understand that the I-485 goes to the Chicago lockbox, and the I-131 filing instructions say to use the same address as the I-485, so it also goes to the Chicago lockbox. But the I-765 instructions say that if you have a PENDING family-based I-485 application, it should also go to the Chicago lockbox, but does this apply even if I haven't filed it yet (so it technically isn't pending)? So after looking at all of this, I think that I am to send the I-485 (+ 2x I-864s), I-765 and I-131 together in the one shipping envelope to the Chicago lockbox, if I am understanding all of this correctly? Sorry if this is a dumb question, I just want to make sure nothing gets rejected when it comes to mailing my packet.
Also, on the G-1450 (credit card payment authorisation). My husband and I will need to use his debit card to make the $1,225 payment because I don't have a US bank account yet. But am I allowed to do this? And if we can, my name goes on the first line of the form, correct ("Applicant's/Petitioner's/Requester's Information")?
Thank you all.
