JloveN posted a topic in Adjustment of Status Case Filing and Progress ReportsHi All, I haven't seen an April 2018 thread/forum for an AOS . I arrived on a K1 Fiancee Visa. I mailed AOS packet to Chicago lockbox on 3/20/18 and they received 3/22/18. I haven't got any notification since March. Expecting email/text notification soon this April 2018!. So, Welcome to the AOS April 2018 filers!. ☺
LizM posted a topic in Adjustment of Status Case Filing and Progress ReportsHi! We will be filing for my AOS shortly, and since tomorrow marks the start of a new month I thought it would be appropriate to start a new thread for all June filers adjusting from K1 visas. If you're filing soon or if you think you'll file within the next few weeks, please join
Our second RFIE had no specific bullet points and this is our last chance to get AOS right. I read some odd interpretations of what tax year "Most recent Tax Return" refers to. It's mid-March so our 2018 Return (filed about a month ago) is our Most recent Tax Return, right? Neither of us filed for 2017 as she was not here and the USC/Spouse income level did not require it. So I should send another Written Statement of not filing in 2017 plus our 2018 1040 Return? The Income RFIE has us worried because it's merely a boilerplate recitation of the Income requirements and does not identify what is missing or defective. No bullet points beyond stating what everyone must submit. We exceed the 125% FPL for 2018 using only the USC/Spouse' 2018 income and 5x cash assets (should be only 3x for spouse but we document 5x) and; We also exceed 125% FPL Income level using our Combined Income although she only began (W2 work) 2 months ago. USC Income is 1099-R so both are indisputable. I don't know what they want (beyond a sponsor but that's not possible and should be unnecessary as we have the assets and income). The non-specific RFIE is denying us an opportunity to effectively Reply and prove our case. My only option is to document 5x assets USC income and Combined Income w/no assets. Such a shotgun or and/or alternative approach will make our Reply confusing and itself likely to justify denial. FWIW: I see the same IO sent both RFIE's. The first was spot-on and specific. The second is just Income Boilerplate. What happens when AOS from a K1 is denied? Will they commence removal proceedings? Employment Authorization gets revoked? We can Stay it? Ned, NYC
