  1. On March 2, 2021I received an email regarding our upcoming I485 Interview in Seattle (haven't received letter yet) Nice Anniversary gift. We have been married 2 yrs as of Mar 2, 2021 on a K1 visa. (1) Will I need a new medical? (2) Will I receive a 10 yr GC if approved? TIA
  2. @jrbaldwinwe had the same notification on Mar 2. Quite an Anniversary gift. We were married 2 yrs on the 2nd. We are Seattle too. It's been a long wait, good luck with your Interview 👍😊
  3. In Canada, I filed as married and separately. The only info they need is your Spouse's name, date of birth, enter their income in US as unknown or estimate. I used my accountant in Canada to file my Canadian Return. We used HR Block in US to file our married joint US returns as I worked in Canada and US the 1st year. It saved him a couple of thousand in taxes by filing joint.
  4. I filed a Tax Return first in Canada to receive my refund on Canadian taxes paid. Then I filed jointly with my husband in US, declared my foriegn income. Claiming me as his spouse lowered his tax payable. We did use HR Block too.
  5. I filed in Canada as married and then filed joint with my husband in the US. You will pay taxes on your income once, as Canada and US have an Agreement on not double taxing. I wasn't happy about paying for 2 Tax returns but I did get a Canadian Refund. Hope this helps😊
