FBAR for the year before becoming permanent resident

Hi everyone, I'm a bit confused regarding my FBAR requirements for 2019.

Here's my situation:

- Married to USC

- Green card holder (IR1 stamped in February 2020)

- Lived abroad with my wife for the last couple of years before our move to the US in February 2020

My question is related to filing the FBAR for 2019. As I wasn't a permanent resident yet in 2019 (entered the US in February 2020 and IR1 stamped then), am I right to assume that I shouldn't file the FBAR for that year?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Hi everyone, I'm a bit confused regarding filing taxes for 2019.

Here's my situation:

- Married to USC

- Green card holder (IR1 stamped in February 2020)

- Lived abroad with my wife for the last couple of years and she filed her taxes as married filing separately

My question is related to filing for 2019. As I wasn't a permanent resident yet in 2019, am I right to assume that I shouldn't file? Can my wife file as "married filing jointly"?

Thanks a lot in advance!

AOS Question

Hi guys,

Question regarding point 25 of Part 6 of the I864.

In point 24 (income) my petitioner has stated her most recent year's (2019) income. In year 2 and 3 she wrote N/A because she was not employed.

Question 25 "i was not required to file a income tax return because income level was below IRS level........"

We have left this blank because she has filed the return (sent to IRS no transcript yet) and attached her W2. We think this question is for year 1 and not 2 and 3. she is uploading her employment letter and pay stubs and attaching a letter explaining why there was no return/income for last 2 years.

Does this seem alright?

Police certificate on CEAC

Hi,

I know police certificate for Pakistan is not required. The state department site states as much and there's a few topics on here that confirm this.

But the CEAC still shows it as one of the required documents, i guess I should just leave it empty and add a comment or something that it is not required as per State department's own instructions?

What do people generally do here?

Birth certificate question

Hey guys,

I was born in Abu Dhabi in 88. Now at that time the birth certificate was a document issued by the Pakistan Embassy, a sort of a form, it contains all the information i.e. parent names, birth hospital and location, dates and even my picture. I understand this was the process at the time for foreign nationals born in the UAE.

Now if you look at the document requirement on the NVC site it says UAE birth certificates should be issued by the Ministry of Health. And there is nothing under alternative documents. So I dont fall under the criteria for valid birth certificate listed here or the one in the country of my nationality.

This is obviously not an uncommon scenario and I hope the NVC will recognize this. Im just worried it'll give them an excuse to issue a RFE.

I've tried reaching out to the Pakistan Embassy here and the local authorities to try and get something in writing but as expected currently there is no response. Im thinking of writing an explanatory letter and attaching it with the certificate and hoping there are no issues.
