  1. Hi there, I have just moved and trying to update my address online. I need to update the address for I-485, I-130, and I-765. However, when I select I-485, then in the next row, there is no option to choose I-130. When I select I-130 first, then form I-485 doesn't show. Am I missing something here? 😳
  2. No, I think I paid $1,760 (off the top of my head, please confirm this number), but yes, only one G-1450 for the entire thing. I did not file for AP though
  3. No worries, thank you so much for you help again! My interview has been scheduled in the meantime, so everything seemed to have been correct I did end up including a 864a filled out by FIL. Yes, I indicated MIL as the only joint sponsor on the form. Regarding the taxes, as it turned out, my wife actually wasn't listed as a dependent on her parents tax return for 2018. // I answered the questions in case someone faces the same problem in the future and comes across this thread.
  4. Good Morning, I'm having my interview early July and currently getting ready for my medical exam. The Form I-693 found here https://www.uscis.gov/i-693 expired on February 28, 2019. However, there doesn't seem to be a new and up to date version of the form available. Under Edition Date, it just says: But that was from way back in 2017. So I should be good using the form expired earlier this year? Just don't want to risk using an expired form for my medical and seeing a new edition being released after my medical but before the interview.. 🤔
  5. Yes, the calculated household size was 2. We have decided to go with MIL as a co-sponsor. She does not live in the same house. MIL is married, but her income exceeds the 125%. They do, however, file taxes jointly - that doesn't matter though right? So it is not necessary for FIL to also fill out a I864 - only a I864A correct? I have two more specific questions regarding the I864: Regarding the household size: Yourself: 1 If currently married: 1 Dependent children: 2 (there are 3 children. My wife and 2 young kids) Other dependents: 1 (My wife, who was claimed as a dependent on 2018's tax return) Household Size: 6 (including me, the immigrant) Does that look correct? Regarding the first Part of the form: Is MIL now the only joint sponsor (1.d), or one of two (1.e) since we have already sent in a I864 filled out by my wife (which was rejected, thus RFIE)? Thank you so much, again!
  6. Hey guys, Just when you think you're done with this tedious process, you're hit with a "Request for Initial Evidence" in the mail. It is regarding the I-864 (Affidavit of Support). As advised here, I-864 Questions regarding meeting 125% poverty guideline, since my U.S. wife only made $13k in 2018, I filled out the form I-864a and included a letter from my employer including my personal information, employment status, salary (around $40k), and that I will continue to work for them pending my AOS status. Unfortunately, that didn't seem to have been good enough. I now have a few questions in regards to responding to the RFIE and including my U.S. wife's mother as a joint sponsor (who makes more than 125% of the poverty limit). In the letter, there are a few bullet points, which makes me think there have been a couple of errors. The first bullet point says: • Submit all supporting tax documentation (W-2s, 1099s, Form 2555, and all supporting tax schedules) submitted to the Internal Revenue Service for the most recent tax year. The petitioning sponsor must submit all supporting documents tax documents for the most recent tax year. In that case, my U.S. wife is still the petitioning sponsor right? Or would that now be her mother (joint sponsor)? In the original package, we included my wife's 2018's W-2 and 1040 as well as my own W-2 and 1099s and 1040. The second bullet point says: · Based on the documents submitted with Form I-864, Affidavit of Support, for the petitioning sponsor, the income did not meet 125 percent of the federal poverty guideline for the petitioning sponsor’s household size. See Form I-864P for information on the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Obtain a qualifying joint sponsor who demonstrates the ability to support you or submit evidence of assets. See Form I-864 Instructions for more information. If you decide to obtain a joint sponsor, you will need to: - Submit a completed and signed Form I-864, Affidavit of Support, from the joint sponsor. All pages must be present andof the latest edition date. - Provide the joint sponsor’s Social Security Number on Form I-864. - Provide a complete and correctly calculated household size on Form I-864. - Submit a complete copy of the joint sponsor’s Federal income tax return and all supporting tax documents (W-2s, 1099s, Form 2555, and tax schedules) for the most recent tax year. - Submit evidence of the joint sponsor’s status as a United States citizen. This seems pretty straight forward, my wife's mother will fill out the I-864. Would she be the (Part 1) "only joint sponsor", or the "[ ] first [ ] second of two joint sponsors"? Basically, would my wife's mother replace my wife's I-864 with her $13k or would that just be an addition? Regarding the household size: how does that work for the section under "Persons NOT sponsored in this affidavit:"? Thank you guys so much!
  7. I just submitted one G-1450 for my entire AOS package and put the form either on the very top or just behind the notification form. The transaction showed up 3 or 4 days after they received the package and everything was find
  8. I have now received a letter stating all of the things from your quoted post. In that case, do I have to fill out I-864EZ since there doesn't seem to be a space to include my (alien relative) income?
  9. Thank you so much for your detailed response! I do meet these criteria. Is there a specific form I have them fill out, or is a simple word document stating all those things including their signature sufficient?
  10. Hi guys, I am currently working on the I-864 form and we're struggling to complete it. My U.S. spouse currently only works part-time because her employer pays for her to go to school full-time. In May/June, after graduation, she goes back to full-time making $15/hour ($31k annually). Her W2 2018 income was only about $13k, because of her part-time status. The 125% poverty guideline for 2019 is around $21k, right? Does she has to meet the 125% for every year in the past 3 years? I'm working as well in the U.S. (F1 OPT) making $15 an hour full-time, which is around $31k/year. Can I add my income, too? I see that if the household income doesn't exceed the 125%, she can include her checking and savings balance. Would that just have to add up to the 125% including the $13k from her 2018 W2?  "My total income (adjusted gross income on Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form 1040EZ) as reported on my Federal income tax returns for the most recent three years was:" Is that the same amount as in field 1 of her W2's? Regarding "Sponsor's Household Size": We currently live in a house with one roommate. Do we have to include that roommate in the form?  Sorry for all the questions, and thank you guys so much for your help. Completing the files hasn't been too stressful, but this particular one is freaking me out lol
  11. I was able to narrow it down a little more, but it would still be a best guess. The user 'Paul & Mary' from above said month/year is good enough. Is it better than a best guess, in your opinion?
  12. Unfortunately, I've never used FB like this. I did try to check my bank statements, but it would let me go back only a couple of years (the address change was in 2014)..
  13. I cannot figure out the date of one of the addresses when I moved from one place into another. I have the month and year. Is that good enough or should I put in my best guess?
