    Hey Darcness. That would be documents such as I-94 to show that she enters the country with inspection and would be eligible to adjust. I am not sure if your wife has an I-94 since she's Canadian? They usually just get a stamp in their passport? That's what that is. Most of the things they ask for, you already sent but u need to bring them anyways. Most likely they wont ask for it but at the same time it doesn't hurt to have. Also, our interview is on the same day... Do you have an early appt?
    I-94 not I-90....

    There are varying opinions on this, and the general consensus seems to be that once GC is aproved, technically the EAD/AP card becomes invalid. While this might be true, in practice CBP will let you use it to re-enter the US, even if the GC was issued while the petitioner was abroad.
    My interview was on July 20, 2011. I wasn't approved on the spot, and had to leave the US the following day because of our wedding which was taking place in Finland in a week. I left on July 21, 2011. Two days later I received an approval email, and once I got my GC I actually noticed that the "issued on" date on my GC is the date of my original interview, 20th of July. I returned to the US early August with my AP, while my GC was waiting in our apt in Brooklyn. At POE this wasn't an issue at all, they can see that the GC has been issued, but because I did not have the physical card on me, they paroled me in with the AP. the Officer told me that as long as I traveled internationally within the next 12 months, I wouldn't have to take any action and just had to make sure to use my GC to re-enter the next time I traveled so that my status in their system would update from a "parolee" to "permanent resident". If I wasn't going to travel, he said I could just come to JFK back to POE and have them manually change my status. He also told me this happens all the time, and people get their GCs issued while they are abroad and use the AP to re-enter on a daily basis. It is of course important to note that this is one experience based on the protocols of one POE, but according to my experience and the information I was given by the officer at POE, using the AP to re-enter when a GC has been issued while the petitioner was abroad is really not very rare, nor that big of a thing.

    From what I have read on VJ, your AP/EAD gets invalidated as soon as your GC is approved. Assume you leave the country and while away, your GC is approved but you do not have it on you. That means, your AP will be invalid at POE and would cause you major problems. That's just me theorizing. Experienced members may know better.

    If you want to pursue thing with ICE, pick up the phone and call. Don't wander around VJ building up support. Take your shot with reporting it. That's the only way to know if what you have as evidence is going to make be sufficient. My understanding is that you have to present a strong case for ICE to expend energy.
    Also, divorce and move on from the marriage. Trying to exact some sort of "payback" is ultimately a waste of good energy.

    It is possible he got the 10-year GC in error. He would need to correct that, or he can be in trouble when he fails to remove conditions. His PR will be cancelled at that time. Besides an error, it is not possible.

    Congratulations. Do not destroy the EAD in case there's an error with the GC and you have to return it. I believe the EAD could be helpful in that scenario; if not, it's always a cute souvenir.

    So they don't have any way to really look you up unless they're intent on tracking you down by name.
    What could happen is that they will look at how long you've been here and say "are you sure you never worked?" That's the time to tell them "yes, actually I did work in 2010 (or whatever.)"
    Don't panic, what's done is done. Your story serves as a lesson for anyone else, so thank you for sharing it. This process is stressful enough without these added concerns.
    Now, it's time to hope for the best, cross your fingers, pray (if that's your thing) and wait it out.
    Edit: I just read Harp's reply above - and I like it. Have a new form ready to go.

    I don't think this misrepresentation is material, because illegal employment is forgiven for spouses of USCs. This illegal work will NOT decide the difference between denial and approval. Why on earth a lawyer advised to lie when telling the truth would have zero negative effect is beyond me...
    If I were you, I would complete a new G-325A and have it ready to present at interview. You can say "I made an error on my form and wanted to hand in a new one" and see what happens.

    So, if you get asked about it in your interview, tell the interviewer this. I'm not saying to walk in there and just start spilling every dark secret you have. But if they ask you, assume they know all, and just be honest. Hopefully you'll get an understanding interviewer who will allow you to correct your mistake.
