  1. Where I am, you can book an Uber by the hour to run errands (the charge in Atlanta is around $50/60 an hour). Is that available where you are? 🙂
  2. Ahh ok this makes sense now! I kept seeing I-766 work permit or whatever the wording was. But I kept thinking that can’t be it as it should be I-765. I didn’t realise the card has its own code! Thank you!
  3. Georgia I do have my EAD card thanks for the info! I couldn’t find anything online about it. It seemed like all the categories didn’t apply
  4. I’m a pending AOS applicant with the combo card, standing in line at the DMV and have been asked to complete an application before entering where I list all my details. it asks: are you a citizen? No of course Are you a legal permanent resident? No but then it asks: Are you a qualified alien or non-immigrant under the Federal Immigration and Nationality Act and lawfully present in the United States? I’m not sure what the answer should be?
  5. Thank you. This is very helpful info that I don’t know how or when I would have stumbled upon otherwise ! As a side question - I was working as a contractor in the U.K. for the first 3 months of 2020 before I moved to the US. I set up a limited U.K. company’s and paid sales tax and corp tax. Then took the remaining profits and paid any U.K. income tax, social security etc on that. when it comes to doing my 2020 US taxes, I will need to report this income right? I assume I need to report all 2020 income, even though it was before I moved here. Do you know if I report my business income? Or my personal income (aka profits from the business).
  6. Thanks for both of your input - it is appreciated! I agree, definitely not worth the risk if it may be misconstrued by CBP or impact my immigration journey in anyway. I will just have to suck it up and do the 4am starts 🙂 I assume that if I want to go back and see my family for 2 weeks every 6 months or so, and I continue my contracting during that 2 weeks, that would be ok right? Or do I need to not work while I am in the UK?
  7. Hope everyone is staying safe and well. I am in the AOS process from a K1 visa, and I just received my combo card. Before I moved to the US, I was living in the UK and working as a contractor in the consulting industry. The pay is very lucrative as a contractor in my field of work and I was making 2x the amount I make on a regular salary so I was only working for 6 months. I would now like to go back into this because of the flexibility and time off, but am seeing far fewer opportunities in the US (I think due to health insurance etc, it's not as common for people to do contracting here? but I may be wrong and it may be due to the fact that I have a great recruiter network in the UK). A 3 month UK-based contract has come up and I was wondering to what extent can I go back and work in the UK? I would ideally go for a month, come back and work remote for a few weeks to spend time with my husband, and go back for the final month. A lot of the work is remote now, but I don't want to work the time difference (which would mean starting work at 4am). My fear is that we haven't done our AOS interview yet, and I don't want it to seem like I don't have the intention to live in the US, and am somehow using the greencard as a glorified visa. If that makes any sense? We plan to have kids in 2 years, so I would only be doing this flying back and forth for a year or 2 max.
  8. I wanted to clarify, for an i-485 application adjusting from a K1 visa... who is the petitioner? is it the USC spouse or the immigrant? I know with the K1, the USC was the petitioner and the non-US fiance(e) is the beneficiary. Is this the same for the i-485, or is the non-US spouse both the petitioner and the beneficiary? Thanks!
  9. Hubby and I are planning to visit Florida over the holidays. I am still in the AOS process. Biometrics is next Tuesday, so I won’t have work or travel permit in time. however as it is domestic (will be a direct flight), is this ok? is there certain paperwork I need to take?
  10. Thanks for everyone's responses - they are appreciated! I really didn't get the impression that early walk ins are going to work right now. the security guard was very polite, but he did say no. And as others have mentioned, this is what the letter states. I will just have to leave town after my appointment, so it's not the end of the world 🙂 I posted my experience (as requested by some users) so that others in my situation can know what to expect.
  11. Hi all, I wanted to post about my experience trying to go early for a biometrics appointment at the Atlanta Center. I was *not* successful. I had an appointment set for later in Dec, and informed them I would be out of town so please can I do biometrics today. I don’t know if early walk ins were possible for Atlanta biometrics before, but it seems with covid there is no chance. Especially as the biometrics letter came with an additional covid letter, that specifically said “only show up on your scheduled date and time”. The security guy I spoke to did at least tell me that if I’m out of town on the date of my biometrics, I can go to the nearest service center on the date and time of my appointment. Another VJ user with a similar timeline to mine also tried to do early walk in today and was given the same response. Sorry I couldn’t bring better news! Best of luck with your immigration journeys 🙂

  14. Thanks all for the responses. I am going to give it a try tomorrow. Worst case they say come back on 22nd. I’ll let you all know my experience! also my letter says I-485/I-765. Do I also need to get them done for I-131?
