  1. I've received my tax refund with the first two stimulus payments included in it ($1200+$600) and then a week later I've received the third one ($1400) directly from the IRS to the same account. Hope this helps someone else out there!
  2. I have a recent joint account with not a lot of transactions on it because we keep almost everything separate. My case was for the initial green card and the complain about was the lack of transactions but not the timing of the account (opened the week after sending my package). It's always about the whole picture and the more the better. Include other financial mingling stuff you may have such as utilities bills on both names (it's easy to do and it helps!), each other's beneficiary on retirement accounts or life insurances, car/house titles and insurance. You are not required to have a joint account, it is just another piece of evidence to prove your relationship is bona fide, so don't worry too much!
  3. To help others in the same situation: I will be claimed as a resident for the whole tax year of 2020 and will be able to claim the first and second stimulus check on my tax return. The third one is unclear when I will be able to claim it, maybe on the next tax return.
  4. Oh thanks for the heads up, I didn't think there was a difference since they're all AOS processes! Got the "card has been mailed" today. What a relief to be done with this!
  5. Thanks! I think there are a couple of others on the other September thread that got their interviews/processes done too. Hang in there!
  6. Interview this morning. It went fine but the officer complained about the lack of financial evidence - one joint account with multiple transactions since the marriage isn't enough? - and said itd go to review not approved on the spot. Got out and checked online and said "new card is being produced" soooooo that's it! Will write a review later

  8. I understand the situation is unique but USCIS not saying yes or no from an interview in 2017 is also not normal?! Then another interview 4 years later? Lots of focus on the OP but this delay is kinda relevant too. 7 years of no answers? Doesn't matter if their together or not, USCIS should have an answer or an RFE. Something!
  9. Ooh, filing with the statement was what I was going to do but I didn't connect the dots that doing so would make me a resident for the whole year (of course!). This is great news, I went from maybe I'll get one stimmy to all three haha
  10. Thanks for your reply but that didn't help much. My interview (also on my timeline) is Monday, April 5th. My "entry" is set to the day I've filed AOS, just noticed it but that doesn't change the fact my AOS is about to end (nor does my marriage date). Already have an SSN, my question about the stimulus is due to change in residency status after the payments were announced so this probably means I won't be able to claim it (I understand the last sentence makes it seems like I was asking about a 2022 stimulus, I was not). As far as I have been able to research, I will become a resident the day my GC gets approved, and since I don't pass the substantial presence test yet my residency starts with GC. If I need extra paper work or not to file taxes for 2020 is still up in the air.
  11. Hello, I'm trying to determine my tax status in between many changes. By the substantial presence test calculated by the Glacier tax prep I am still a non resident even though I've been in the country since mid 2016. I believe that's due to 5 calendar year exemption for students on F1 visas, which means 2021 will be the first year I am a resident for tax purposes but that doesn't count for 2020 taxes. I thought of filling jointly using the non resident alien spouse of US citizen amendment but I'm about to have my interview (and don't see a reason I'd be denied a GC) so I'm gonna be a resident soon anyways by the green card test. If I wait until I have my GC in hands, can I just file as a resident, no extra paper work needed? Second question - since I became a resident for tax purposes in 2021, am I eligible to claim the latest stimulus check on the 2020 tax return? Or does that only count for my next tax return in 2022?
  12. AOS cases depend on the field office more than the processing centers. There is no one line for all cases. Have you checked if your case is outside of normal processing times?
  13. You were clear I just re-read your post and realize my mistake. Yeah two weeks seems like a good time for it to arrive! Good luck and thanks
  14. I think it's too variable to know? I had bio done last month and nothing, it's very possible I'm gonna get the green card prior to getting EAD/AP...
