  1. Yes, I was worried because the business loan is different than the stimulus checks that most people will receive. Good luck!
  2. Thanks for your reply. Just to be clear, I’m referring to a Small Business Administration Loan for businesses that suffer economic injury during this time. I understand that almost everyone will get a stimulus check, but the SBA Loan is for businesses and are something that has to be applied for. That makes me wonder if it might be looked upon as being a negative when we go to our interview because we had to apply for help from the government.
  3. Hi, I have a small business and I’m considering applying for an SBA disaster relief loan because of forced shutdowns in my area. I can’t work because my business is considered non-essential during the coronavirus pandemic. I’m worried that an SBA loan could be seen as part of the new public charge rule. Could receiving a loan like this cause problems with immigration? Thank you, John
  4. Thank you. I found it mentioned on the I-485 page on the USCIS site, also. It says to continue to use the current I-485 form. We got our package off today. Fingers crossed. thanks for your response.
  5. Hi, We plan to send our I-485 AOS package in tomorrow, October 15. It would have been sent today except for the holiday. ( I’m always a day late and a dollar short.) Since there is an injunction now against the changes to the self-sufficiency rule, should we go ahead and send in our package without this form? It seems like the I-944 has been removed from the USCIS website, at this point. thanks for any help
  6. Hello, We are compiling our documents for AOS. Should we go ahead and include photos of our married life, bills together, etc. at this point? Or, is that something that should be presented at the interview? We did that for our K1 Visa application, but we’re not sure if we should go ahead and add proof of our marriage (beyond the marriage license) with the I-485? Thank you
  7. Does anyone know whether there is an additional document that needs to be filed after the 180 day mark? I read somewhere that there is, but I can’t find it now.
  8. Thank you all for your answers. At least we have an idea of what our options are if we do get denied. We are going to apply without a lawyer and if there is a problem down the road, we will try to be in a better position financially to hire a lawyer at that time. Thank you again
  9. Hi, We are filing the AOS for my wife late. We got married within 90 days, but it's been almost 180 days since she arrived in the US and we are just now filing the AOS this week. We have to file without the help of a lawyer because we can't afford one at this point. So, here are my questions: 1) is there an additional fee or document that needs to be filed if we get the application in before 180 days after her arrival to the US? 2) If we are denied for some reason, what is the worst-case scenario at that point? Can we simply reapply? Or, is there a situation where they can immediately start deportation procedures? We feel like we should apply now and hope we have everything in order and won't be denied rather than waiting another few months to be able to hire a lawyer. Thank you for your help.
  10. Thanks for your help. I will take this advice and put the date from the passport. I wonder if if we should add a note pointing out the discrepancy, but that may be just making things more complicated. We are past the 90 days, but we’re trying to get it submitted as quickly as we can. Thanks for your replies. 🙂
  11. Hello, My fiancé arrived in the U.S. on a K1 Visa on April 30th, which is what the date stamped in her passport. However, the date on the I-94 shows her last “date of entry” as May 1st, which is the next day. She went through customs around 9:00 p.m. on the 30th, but when we downloaded the I-94, it shows May 1st as her “date of entry.” On the I-485, should we just list the most recent “date of entry” as May 1, which is what seems to be in the government system? Or, list it as April 30 to match the stamp in the passport. Or is this an error that we need to rectify before submitting the I-485. Thank you for your help.
  12. Thank you for moving this to the proper forum. 🙂 In Vietnam, names seem to usually be listed in an order that’s different from the US. Usually, the last name is listed first, and then the middle names, and then the first name. So, I’m not sure if I could have gotten it changed on her passport.
  13. Hello, My fiancé arrived in the US from Vietnam on a K-1 visa. We were married here a few weeks ago. When we went to get her Social Security card, they said they would have to put her name in the order it is on her K-1 visa, with her middle names first, then her first name, then her last name. I showed the person at the Social Security office that her name is listed correctly on our marriage certificate, but they insisted they had to go by the visa. Is this correct? Should I try to get her name listed differently on the I 94 form? Was the mistake made on the original visa because it was printed in the same order it is on her Vietnam passport? Thank you for any help. John
