  1. Thank you!!! Keep us updated and good luck ! I am about to send my package as well
  2. Gotcha ! I hope everything works out for you and you don't have another RFE ! This formI-944 is confusing for sure. If you don't mind I ask, What were the missing documents in your husband's tax return ? Did you only include the one from 2019 or 2 years prior as well ? I am trying to figure it what to include since my husband's tax return has some much info, and at the same time I don't want to send so much documents so I don't bother them lol. Thank you so much !
  3. Yes, I-944 needs to be filed by the alien, you will be a part of her household though, For Tax Returns : for her, not required to file and explain that in the "reason for not filling" part, if she filed in a foreign country, it needs to be included (in English of course) For the Credit Score : it is her credit score, I also do not have one at time of filling I-944, if your wife is in the US right now, she has to send by mail a request for credit score evaluation to transunion here https://www.transunion.com/article/3-free-credit-reports. It is free and you get results from Equifax, Experian TransUnion (3 agencies recognized by USCIS). Do not do it online as they will tell you "unable to process your information" but if you send it by mail you will receive 3 letters, within 1-2 weeks stating "unable to find credit score" or "no credit score", this is what you want for you wife to include in her I-944. Hope this helps !
  4. It is definitely the husband debts and liabilities, I do not think you should include yours as it say "your debts, liabilities and bankruptcies". I am also completing the I-944 and as some, I came here with an F1 visa so student with no income. For the SSN, it is really easy, go to https://www.transunion.com/article/3-free-credit-reports and send them by mail, not online (I did not have a SSN when searching my credit score, even though I did not have one). Send them a form through mail and you will receive statements that says "unable to locate your credit score" "no credit score available" and this is what you need for I-944. The advantage of going through Transunion is that you will get report from all 3 companies. This is free ! Hopefully it helps, good luck, we're all in the same boat lol
  5. Hey all ! I am filling form I-864 and including my husband (U.S citizen) tax return for year 2019. I was wondering, Do I need to also include his Form 1098 Mortgage Interest Statement and Form 1098-T Tuition Statement with the tax return and W-2s? Thank you !!
  6. Yes, form I-944 is required and needs to be filed by your spouse since late february for the Public Charge Ground. Find more info here https://www.uscis.gov/i-944 " You must file this form if you are filing Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, and you are subject to the public charge ground of inadmissibility. In general, each applicant who submits Form I-485 must submit his or her own Form I-944 if the applicant is subject to the public charge ground of inadmissibility" from USCIS website. Form I-864 and form I-944 are different forms and once again both need to be completed when applying for AOS. Form I-944 goes further in details about your wife's income, tax returns, credit score, health insurance etc... Hope this helps !
  7. Hi everyone, I am an international student from France on a F-1 visa, my husband is American and I started the process of AOS in order to obtain a green card. I am completing the Form I-944 or "Declaration of Self-Sufficiency" and I have to list my household income. My husband is my first household member, but as a student, my parents are financing my studies here in the US. The instructions mention that "Any individual who provides to you at least 50 percent of your financial support, or who lists you as a dependent on his or her federal income tax return" and to mention if they are going to file a federal tax return. Since my parents live in France, I was wondering if the "not required to file a tax return" is applicable ? and if the fact that they are french is a valid explanation for not filing. Thanks by advance for your help and have a great day !
  8. Thank you so much ! just found out we don't need one!
  9. Hi guys, I am an international student from France here on a F1 visa. I live in Ohio and my partner and I would like to get married, I do not have a SSN and I was wondering : Do you need a SSN to get married in OHIO ? Thanks !
  10. Hi everyone, I am Sara, an international student from France at the University of Cincinnati - Cincinnati, OHIO (F-1 visa). I graduate this semester and applied for an OPT that will start on the 15th of June. My fiancé (an American citizen) and I will get officially married next week and I would like to apply for an Adjustment of Status in order to obtain a Green Card. However, I just sent my OPT files to USCIS and I was wondering... Is it okay to apply for the AOS anytime soon considering that I sent my OPT files to USCIS last Tuesday ? Also, does anyone know more about the Public Charge Rule implementation ? my fiancé has a job and a house in his name, however I am still a student and my parents, back at home, sponsor me for all my expenses, I was wondering if it would affect me... If anyone knows more or have a similar experience please let me know, thank you ! Sara
