  1. No one has made an April post yet. We’re planning on filing next week. Good luck to everyone here.

  3. Hello! Just a quick question and I apologise if I have posted it in the wrong place. I'm currently waiting for my green card after applying for AOS in mid January. My case is being dealt with in Charlotte, NC, and their office is showing processing times from 8.5 months to 26.5 months. Now with covid I'm expecting that these times will be much longer and because I would like to see my family back in the UK I'm now thinking that it might be a good idea to apply for a travel document. It has been four and a half months since I applied for AOS, so looking at the shortest processing time I may have four months left, although it is likely to be closer to the longest processing time of 3 years. The current processing time for the travel document is 3-5 months, but this also could be affected by covid. Do you think it would be worth it to apply for the travel document in the hope that I may be able to travel in the next six months? Or should I just continue to wait for the green card as I have already been waiting for four and a half months? Thanks you and I'm sorry again if this is posted in the wrong place.
  4. Hi everyone, Does anyone know or have experience with filing AOS and H1B concurrently? I'm working in the US under F-1 STEM OPT, and my EAD card will expire 7/11/2020. I was very lucky to get selected in the H1B lottery with normal cap this year (after 2 years not getting selected), and my employer is filing the paperwork for my visa. I haven't heard any news yet about interview or if the petition is complete. Under cap-gap, I will be able to work with my current EAD until I get the final result for H1B visa. At the same time, I am recently married to my US citizen husband, and we are considering filing for AOS for green card. If we file for AOS now, would that cancel my H1B petition? If so, should we wait until I get H1B visa result and then file for AOS? The idea is that if I get the H1B visa, in case our AOS application got denied we would still have time to resubmit AOS petition. Or should we file AOS now? I fear that my H1B might be denied, because we made an honest mistake and violated the 90 days guidance. I visited my home country for 2 weeks in Feb 2020, and entered the US under a renewed F1 visa. About 6 weeks later, my then boyfriend proposed while we were quarantined at home and we got married within 90 days of my last entry. I'm afraid that USCIS will consider this as a visa fraud and either way both my H1B and AOS will be negatively affected, if not denied. In short I just realized I completely messed up my chances and am panicking. Any help or advice is very much appreciated! We're also seeking immigration attorney's help this Monday, so referral are very welcome.

  7. Starting this thread for argentinians filling AOS out there. AOS information is general for everyone from every country. We just decided to make this thread to try to keep argentinians together. @Fernanda R Sanz kindly wrote down th things to do as soon as you arrive to the US for AOS. I-94 Form: you download it from the gov page. At customs they register your entry on that form. You need this paper to get an SSN#, AOS, EAD and AP. The trick here, is that this form expires 7 days after your arrival (not the Visa, only the validity of this I94 Form) so you MUST process your SSN# before it expires. If not, you will get lots of delays. SSN#: You are told that you must wait 1 or 2 weeks since your arrival to apply for an SSN#, so you give time for the system to pull up your data. And also apply before the 90 days expire. I've apply one day before my I94 Form was going to expire, and the system was down so I will need to wait a month to receive my SSN# with my single name. Buy the Marriage License and get married. (When you have your ssn#, go back and ask to have your name changed from for single name, to your married name. This will work as a proof of genuine marriage.) Take pictures of all the activities, trips,dinners,sightseeing places,etc. You need to show how the relationship continues on this 90 days period. (Of course you need to add pictures of the wedding and reception) Joint Account: Create a joint account as soon as you are married, so it'll show both names and address, as well as proof of all the marriage spendings,rent,etc. You need your SSN# and marriage certificate to get one, also as soon as you get an account, the better to get credit. Creditcard and personal account for beneficiary: You need to have a service under your name and SSN# to have one. Also do it as soon as possible, so you start gaining credit points. Do Affidavit of Support. Fill out forms and do copies. Lease or mortgage: you'll need proof of adress, so after marriage,ssn#, and accounts, both names of spouses should be in the lease or mortgage. Also must have services under both of you, showing same adress and congratulatory letters to both spouses to the same home adress I'll write down a check list for AOS, EAD and AP AOS Form I-485 completed and signed by beneficiary Cover letter with table of contents Form I-693 (if overseas medical expired) overseas DS-3025 vaccination report Form G-1145 I-94 (you get it online like it says above) I-129f approval letter from USCIS petition aka NOA2 Birth Certificate Both Spouses (the BC from the beneficiary has to be translated and apostilled) Copy passport biography page of both spouses Copy of passport visa history and entry stamp of beneficiary Color passpor style photographs $1225 check or money order for filling and biometric fees Divorce documents (apostilled and translated too) I-864 Affidavit of support Photographs of the 90 days process Marriage certificate (original or certified copy) EAD Form I-765 completed and signed by beneficiary Copy of beneficiary's Passport with biographical page Copy of beneficiary's K1 Visa from Passport and entry stamp Passport Photos (2) name written on the back Cover letter with table of contents Form G-1145 I-94 I-129F approval lettere from USCIS NOA2 Marriage Certificate (copy) AP Form I-131 completed and signed by beneficiary Copy of beneficiary's Passport with biographical page Copy of beneficiary's K1 Visa from Passport and entry stamp Passport Photos (2) name written on the back Cover letter with table of contents Form G-1145 I-94 I-129F approval lettere from USCIS NOA2 Marriage Certificate (copy) Please, if you have more information, comment down below so we can help eachother!

  8. Hi everyone, I have been searching through this forum and did not find any topics that discussed EAD Expedite cases where USCIS has requested Proof. Share your experience and timeline here so we can get a better idea about how long it takes and what is the success rate. You can track mine in my signature. I requested EAD expedite review under Severe Financial Loss and I provided a letter from my employer to prove it. It has been 9 days since I faxed my letter and no change so far...
  9. Hey everyone! I arrived in the U.S. in the beginning of March on a K1 Visa and I got married before everything closed. Now we’re finally getting ready to send our AOS. My husband graduated in March und should’ve started his first real job in May.. Through the Corona Crisis he couldn’t start in May and probably has to start in late June, early July. My husband works at DoorDash now to at least make some money during that time and we’re not gonna file for unemployment. The mom and dad of my husband are our joint sponsors for the greencard but we don’t live with them and his dad is in our lease for our apartment too. My question now is if I should put his parents in the I-944 too in the household because they still have my husband as a dependent on their tax return and his dad is on our lease or not? If we don’t put him on there our income is too less because my husband only made about $10.000 last year (I made about $40.000 but I don’t know if that really counts because I lived in Germany when I made that money). Sorry for the long text but thank you for all your answers!!
  10. Hello there. Hope everyone is doing well. So my husband (USC/petitioner) and I are preparing to fill out the I-864 form for me and our 2 year-old daughter (IR1/IR2). And we just have a few questions. BTW, He filed 2 separate I-130 forms, got RFE for both cases, and just waiting for approval. Question 1) Does he need to fill out and upload 2 separate I-864 forms for each of our cases or fill out only one i-864 form and upload the same form for both of our cases? Question 2) In Part 3, Item Number 1, as shown on the pic attached, are we right in ticking the YES box? Since our daughter will be immigrating with me at the same time, do we tick the box of Item Number 2 and write her name on Family Member 1 (Item 4.a onwards)? Question 3) I've read from the past threads that instead of I-864 form, I-864W should be uploaded for beneficiary less than 21 years old. However, I believe it is no longer required by the NVC and the form is not in the USCIS website anymore. As per the USCIS website "Form I-485 is now used to collect information previously collected on Form I-864W, Request for Exemption for Intending Immigrant’s Affidavit of Support. Adjustment applicants no longer need to file Form I-864W." Does my husband need to fill out I-485? Feel free to share your experience. Any response will be highly appreciated.
  11. Hey guys; I have a few questions regarding the form I-485, hopefully you'll be able to help me. First at all, I entered the country under a B2-VISITOR visa in 2008, overstayed. The passport that had that visa was lost. Many many many years ago I had gone to a bar and had many drinks and well, I lost it. I did not lose the I-94, back in the day they'd give you a small "card" so I had that saved at home. Anyways, I have the passport number, I however don't have the expiration date on that passport. PART 1, question #17 asks for that passport's expiration date, and of course I don't have it. I have just my current passport that I got a few years ago. What should do there? Type my new current's passport expiration date? And I know this will sound ridiculous but... PART 7, question #1 I am Hispanic yes, but then PART 7, question #2 says "race", I don't know, am I white? lol I'm definitely none these others (Asian, Black, American Indian, Hawaiian) PART 8, question #15, have you ever been denied a visa? The first time I applied for my B2, I was denied. Is that YES to that question? PART 8, question #16, have you ever worked in the USA without authorization? Duh, I've been here for 14 years, many random jobs, got paid cash, personal checks, ect, is that a YES? PART 8, question #17 have you ever violated the terms or conditions of your non-immigrant status? I mean, I'm an overstay, is that a YES? PART 8, question #78 have you ever renounced US citizenship to avoid being taxed by the united states? I don't even have a green card yet, is that a NO? PART 9 question #1 are you requesting an accommodation because of your disabilities or impairments? I'm not disabled or impaired, is that a NO? I know these are silly questions but I'm trying to see how people in the same boat have answered these questions.
  12. If you are a K-1, K-2, K-3 or K-4 visa holder the I-693 instructions state that you are not required to have another medical examination as long as your Form I-485 is filed within one year of your overseas medical examination. Regardless of if you are exempt from a medical exam, you are still required to complete certain portions of the I-693 and have a Civil Surgeon certify the form (and seal it in an evelope). Specifically, you will complete Part 1 (Information about you) of the I-693 and provide both the form and your DS-3025 (if you have it, proving your vaccination history) and any proof of required vaccinations that were completed prior to entering the US. If you do not have a copy of your DS-3025 you will need to provide sufficient evidence of your vaccination history to the Civil Surgeon (talk to the civil surgeon's office to discuss what vaccination records they accept as proof). If you do not have proof of your vaccination history the Civil Surgeon may insist on re-administering all the required vaccinations prior to completing the I-693. Once the Civil Surgeon has has verified that all required vaccinations have been performed, they will complete form I-693 Part 2 (the vaccination section) and Part 5 (the Civil Surgeon's Certification). They will then seal the form in an envelope and return it to you. Form I-944 has quite a bit of supporting documents that go with it depending on your situation, be sure to read the instructions for this form carefully. Many people have gotten a RFE for this form so be sure to pay CLOSE attention when filing it out. When in doubt ask questions on the forums. When filing by mail, "priority mail with delivery confirmation" is the preferred method. Always keep a copy of what you have filed. IF your forms include an I-485 AND an I-485A, forget the "A" one...it is used for other types of applications for adjustment, such as assylum...you ONLY need to file the regular I-485 Form, not the A supplement. BE SURE TO USE CODE (C)(9) FOR A 1-YEAR EAD CARD (when filing concurrently with I-485)!!! How to get the forms: You can use forms downloaded from the USCIS website if they are printed on good quality paper with a good printer quality. You can also download free fillable forms on this site. Other things you will need: passport-style pictures (see specification), copy of the passport, copy of the k-1 visa (and NOA2), Electronic I-94 Copy (or for older entries a front/backside copy of the non US Citizen Spouses valid paper I-94), copy of the fiance's birth and divorce certificates with translation, PLUS the supporting documentation for the I-864 form: letter from employer confirming employment, the last 3 years of tax returns, plus any documentation of your financial resources if you choose to include this. The rule is, if your income is not 125% of the poverty level for your family, you will need additional financial documentation. HOWEVER, if you read the form instructions carefully, it states that while they do NOT require additional financial information IF you have at least 125% of the poverty level, it says the USCIS can still ask for that information if they want... so in order to potentially avoid future questions, many people include financial information, including bank letter, letter from stockbroker, letter regarding mortgages, copy of deeds to a property, and any other financial assets... etc. It is far better to include too much information rather than not enough. How long will I have to wait for an EAD, advance parole, and adjustment of status: You can check time here. Where to file the forms: You will file your petition at the Chicago Lockbox. See this page for the Chicago Lockbox address (PO Box). You will receive a receipt (Notice of Action) in the mail for your application once they receive and process it.
  13. First of all, happy new year to everyone. Anyone filing in January? I'm currently prepping our package so we can hopefully send it out soon. Either way, figured we could use progress post for our AOS like the K-visa people have in their subforum so here we are.
  14. Hi All, We are starting the NVC process and we have a few questions. I think we qualify to use the I-864EZ. Be the petitioner who filed the original Form I-130 on behalf of the intending immigrant; my husband. Be the petitioner who filed the original Form I-130 on behalf of the intending immigrant; he filed the I-130 only for me. Be able to show sufficient income to support the intending immigrant based solely on your salary and pension, which amount is shown on the W-2 Form(s) provided by your employer or former employer; he make around 55k in 2019 and he's only using his income - no joint sponsor. Do we need to file the I-864 as well? Or is it enough with the I-864EZ? Also, do you know what's the "additional aos supporting documentation" that we need to upload? I see we have to upload the I-864 or EZ and we also have to attach the IRS Transcripts but do we need to attach anything else? Thanks in advance for your help!
  15. Anyone know of any of the tourist based aos interviews being waived?
  16. I am about to file form I-290B because my I-485 adjustment of Status (Marriage with US Citizen) was denied due to missing form I-864. Question: Even though I the beneficiary filed for I-485 that was denied, am I the one submitting for I-290B or the sponsor which is my spouse? it is confusing, the denial letter states the beneficiary cannot file I-290B. I am the applicant of I-485 that was denied but also the beneficiary of the filing for AOS/Green Card. If anyone can help, thanks. Also is there a template / Cover letter sample that addresses the I-290B Motion to reopen? thanks.
  17. Hello! I am not finding any info regarding my particular concerns so throwing this out there. I am currently pregnant, due July 18 (found out on our wedding day in November!). Filed AOS first week of December, got my EAD/AP first week of March. My status has been showing ready to be scheduled for an interview since February 9th. I was actually expecting an interview date to arrive any day when USCIS closed their offices in March. Now that they're due to open in June I'm scared my interview will be next in line to be scheduled and now fall very close to my due date. I'm a high risk pregnancy and likely to be hospitalized and/or get an emergency C-section any time after 36 weeks. I'm wondering if a request to postpone until after my due date is possible before the interview date is even issued? Or do I have to wait and get the notice in the mail before making a request? Would pregnancy and labour risk be enough reason to ask to reschedule if I'm not in the hospital yet? Ideally I would be able to ask them to only schedule me after August 1st to avoid any rescheduling altogether. I just have no idea if I can make such a request. Any thoughts?

  20. I had a few interviews for foot-in-the-door positions that complimented my degree, experience or passions that haven't returned follow up communications, and lots of recruiters saying I'm not the right fit, just feeling a bit down. Had one company come right out and ask about the gap on my resume (June 2019-now) before scheduling an interview, and I explained I was waiting for my work permit and am good to work in the US,, emphasizing I am here for good/on a marriage basis. I fear this is the first thing EVERY hiring manager sees, then my lack of instate/country references, my out of country work experience/education..I think it has put me at a disadvantage in positions I'm qualified for..especially with all the recent news of work permit visas being denied, I think the layman hiring manager will put conditional residents quietly aside. Now I'm applying for positions I'm overqualified for, and in these times a little concerned about (I'd be joining the front-lines of essential workers in a tourist town). Maybe I am looking for excuses why I haven't found a job, but maybe all of us relatively unskilled conditional residents are feeling their non-citizen status harder than usual. I can't apply for many jobs even because they are federal..or require a full drivers license (I got my learners a day before the DMV closed!) It's tough!! I am hoping for the best..and that this is just an extremely hard time for a new immigrant entering the work force. I am trying to be thankful at least some places are hiring lots, but I am also a bit humiliated and sad I can't find a job I will enjoy more/be proud of, after a bachelors degree and 5 rewarding years moving up in a small industry that's shut down for the year. I'm thinking 20-30 hours in a stocking job is about all I can handle for now, after being depressed for so long I miss my friends/fam a lot after my first year in America, and had hoped to dive into a new community, have my old friends come stay with me, make new ones, find a decent job, and hobby groups, but it's been hard. Much love to all of you out there going through these motions!
  21. Hi everyone, currently at NVC stage and working on the AOS, wondering if anyone on here has used the GI Bill as form of income? Where did you list it and did they accept it?
  22. Hi all, I was looking around for items that a joint sponsor needs for the Affidavit of Support since my wife and I are filing for her adjustment of status. I have found conflicting things about what is needed. What items does the joint sponsor need for the adjustment of status? Is a Form I-130 needed for the Adjustment of Status (K1)? Thanks!
  23. I hope someone can help me! my case is ready to be scheduled for an interview now and so just waiting for the letter but was wondering about the medical exam.. I had mine over a year ago around 1and half years ago done when i was doing my K1visa before i came to USA. Do i have to re-do my medical right before the exam or just bring the old one i have? thank you!
  24. Vox.com: USCIS could run out of money by summer’s end without a $1.2B bailout. https://www.vox.com/2020/5/16/21260966/uscis-bailout-coronavirus-immigration-agency Do you think they could save some money by allowing everyone to apply online and upload the numerous documents they require? They are operating like it's 1980. They spent $30 on postage rejecting my applications and sending them back to me. I'm begging them to cash my check and process our AOS...
  25. My K-1 and K-2 had medical exams in January 2019, and entered USA in July 2019 just in time, one day before the visa expired. Now we are filing for AOS in May 2020, but the medical exam is over 1 year old. Our previous two attempts were rejected in February and April because of the change in the 485 form, and for only including one 864 the second time. Has anyone been in this situation where the medical exam was over one year old? Is it possible they won't ask for another one?
