  1. I don't have a link and I can't speak for Android users since I have an Iphone. However, it should be easy to find on your mobile device. For Iphone users, just go to the app store and search for Case Tracker for USCIS (it's free). I took a picture of what the app looks like. This will allow you to track all your receipt numbers with the USCIS to check their status. Very handy tool.....
  2. The status changes went in this order for us: (November 10th, 2020) - The fingerprints relating to your Form I-765 Application for Employment Authorization, were taken (February 25th, 2021) - We ordered your new card (February 26th, 2021) - We approved your Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization (March 1st, 2021) - We mailed your new card your Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, directly to the address you gave us (March 2nd, 2021) - The Post Office picked up mail containing your new card Once we got the combo card, we literally got her social security number the following day or 2. Very happy it was that quick, but I believe it's dependant upon where your SSA office is and how busy they are. Highly recommend using the Case Tracker app that can be downloaded to your mobile phone/tablet. My wife never got any email notifications from the USCIS as the card was being produced or mailed. We got the updates from the Case Tracker way before we received the official Notice of Action letters in the mail. Hope this helps!!
  3. My wife just received her combo card today! Now to hoping we can get the social security card for her soon.....
  4. Hi all, For those of you that got your EAD approved, how long did it take you to get your Social Security Number? Thanks!
  5. Woohoo!! My wife's I-765 has been approved today! My case status went from Fingerprints received to "New Card is Being Produced" Thank the Lord!!
  6. It didn’t take that long. I think my case was updated in about 1 - 2 weeks. Honestly, they probably just made sure they received it. I doubt they spent time reviewing all the documents I gave them that fast. That probably comes much later....
  7. I'm no tax expert, however...if it was me, I probably would check YES since you did at some point file a federal return. Then I would put 2019 in the box that says Federal Tax Year and then supply that Box 1 figure from the W-2 into the following box next to it where it asks for your "Wages, tips". Also, keep in mind, not everyone has filed their 2020 taxes yet since people have thru April 15th to submit. Therefore, if you submit before then, I would think the USCIS would be ok with your 2019 Federal Return. Again, that is just my opinion. Hope that helps! Best of Luck, apellica
  8. Last week, our case status changed to Case is Ready to be Scheduled for Interview. After we submitted our RFE for the I-944, it was a quick turn-around which was great! However, I don't know how long it typically takes for them to schedule an interview. You would think it wouldn't take long, but I'm hearing it could take a while depending on your service center. This process has been exhausting and we can't wait to get a break from all this paperwork. In all honesty, the thing we want the most is the EAD approval so we can her social security number in order to file our taxes. I know I could file an extension, but I would like to avoid that if possible since I have to submit 4 returns.....a real pain.
  9. We also had our Biometrics on November 10, 2020. The USCIS should be receiving our I-944 package today. I'm hoping the RFE doesn't slow the process when it comes to EAD and AP. Would prefer if they were on their own time table separate of the I-485. We'll soon see!!
  10. I'm still confused by this because the wording is terrible. How have people been filling this section out?
  11. Hi all. For the I-944, under the Household Assets section, there is a Current Cash Value and Total. It looks like the Current Cash Value is taken into account in the Total field. So I'm inclined on putting zero in the Current Cash Value field so the Total doesn't double count all my assets. I did this because I listed all my assets in the fields provided already....so the Total is calculating everything correctly. Am I doing this right? Can anyone confirm? Thank you!
  12. Hi all, For the I-944's Household's Assets and Resources section, are the Beneficiaries' on this board providing their Petitioner's assets even though the household income is above the Poverty Line? My Filipino wife doesn't have much money in her Philippine's bank account; even though she had a good job before she quit to marry me. However, she spent most of her money helping out her family by putting her brothers and sisters thru college. I can support her well enough, but I just don't know how that looks from the USCIS's point of view. When we filled out the Affidavit of Support, I didn't provide any assets since my income was sufficient. Not sure if I should be treating it the same for the I-944.
