  1. Hi Guys, I entered the US on feb 1st 2018 with my K1 visa. The CBP officer just gave me my passport back with a stamp mentioning the 3 months that i have to marry my fiancee. Now this is the part that gets me confused- I went to this website- https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov and printed my latest I-94, does that mean that I'm in the "system" ( aka SAVE-ASVI system)? or should I wait for a 1-2 weeks? Another question - what documents do I need to bring with me to get my SSN? Thanks!
  2. I got here in the USA with K1 Visa last August and we got married within 90 Days. My I-94 says it's valid til November 7 2018?. We haven't applied for AOS yet and my question is, can I fly within the USA if my I-94 was only til November 7 2018? If yes, what documents do I need to bring?
  3. My mum has visiting visa (B2) that is valid till 2020. she was authorized to stay till dec 12th (I-94), but due to unforeseen circumstances (complications in the birth of my first child, and the airline being (removed) she missed her flight but is scheduled to fly back on the dec 28th (we had to book another return ticket and the 28th was the earliest), 16days after her authorized stay would have expired. I want to file a I-539 (extend stay) with proof that the airline screwed up and also the birth cert of my child and the new return date tickets. but I can't file an I-539 since she is already overstayed. i just want to let them know the reason she overstayed, since she still has a valid visa till 2020, i don't want a situation where she visits again (prolly in a year from now) and she gets turned back. Is it necessary to file this or just let her go back on 28th?
  4. I am applying for AOS and am a Canadian on a TN Visa. I crossed into the US at a land border from Canada in a NEXUS lane in the summer and did not receive an I-94 or a passport stamp. When I look up my I-94 on the CBP website, a previous I-94 is listed from air travel earlier in the year. Arrival/departure records on their website do list my most recent land entry (I am aware that the process is such that land entry I-94s do no get updated electronically). Therefore I have no I-94 which accurately lists my most recent date of entry into the US, and no passport stamp to prove a legal entry into US. do have: My original I-94 white paper card stapled into my PP which was given to me when I was initially issued my TN Visa two years ago. This I-94 number does not match my "most recent I-94" number listed online. This suggests that CPB makes a new I-94 number each time you cross the border. My "most recent I-94" available online with wrong most recent entry date. AOS requires my I-94 number (presumably my most recent one which should prove I legally entered the US). I have three questions: Has a new I-94 been issued to me at the time of land crossing that I don't have any record of? Or is my "most recent I-94" listed online the real most recent I-94. If this were the case it would stand that no new I-94 number was created when I entered by land. There would still be the discrepancy of an inaccurate most recent entry date. What options do I have to prove my legal entry into US on my AOS? Maybe CBP did not create a new I-94 number for me at most recent entry because previous I-94 was still valid and I left the US to be in Canada for less than 30 days. Does anyone know how I could confirm this? Maybe the correct I-94 number to list on my AOS is the original white paper card given to me when my visa was issued? Thanks for your help! PS: I have found this issue come up a few times on this forum, but no resolution ever posted.
  5. Hello All, I'm having a bit of an issue retrieving the I-94 for my last entry to the US on a K1 visa 2 days ago. When I go to the website, my most recent I-94 shows my last entry on a B2 visa 2 months ago. However, when I look at my travel history I see my entry from 2 days ago. Is this normal? It is my understanding that I-94s are issued almost instantly after being processed at POE by CBP. I'm wondering if maybe there's a delay in updating because I entered on the weekend. Can anyone shed some light on this? How long does it usually take for the electronic I-94 to be available on the website? Would really appreciate some feedback.
  6. Hello All, I have really screwed up and I am trying to understand what will happen from here. My husband has come to the US on a K1, we got married and sent off our AOS. Long story short, when they received our AOS, the filing fee check had bounced a few times. I'm sure they are currently in the process of sending our packet back to us, and we will refile once it is returned and assure that the next check we send will not bounce. Here is our issue: The point to which our AOS packet is returned to us and sent back may overlap with the 90 days the I-94 allows him to be here lawfully. I believe he becomes "Out Of Status" or something to that effect. My question is what happens in that overlap between when the 90 days expire and the AOS is received again? Worst case scenario is that overlap is 1-2 weeks based on processing times. He is lawfully abiding by the rest of the terms of the I-94/K1 visa. Will that overlap time count against him? Is there anything else we will need to include in the packet we return since the time has overlapped? I have scoured many other forum posts to this but specific advice would be helpful. Thanks
  7. Hi, we're currently filling out the I-129F form and it clearly states that the I-94 information (38.a. - 38.h.) is not needed unless the beneficiary is in the US. But I did see some comments in this forum about attaching the most recent I-94 if you checked the Yes box for "Has your beneficiary ever been in the United States?". As I'm the beneficiary and I have been to the US, I just retrieved my I-94 from cbp.gov and it does not show my departure date. "Most recent date of entry" (07/28/17) is correct, but then all it says is "Admit until date" and lists 10/25/17. I went on an ESTA so it does make sense that I'm admitted until October, but since I left already, should that not be reflected? So is the I-94 really needed (can't find anything on uscis.gov about this) and if it is, what do we do if it's not accurate? We just don't want to submit contradicting information (as the I-129F is clearly stating that I've left the country) when we're not really sure it's even needed.
  8. Hello everyone, I'm a little confused about the I-94 requirement on the fiance visa petition. I'm a January 2018 filer and I was wondering when the I-94 is required in the form. Our lawyer didn't include it in the packet and said that it is was not necessary. And on the form is says to fill out part 38.a - 38.h if the beneficiary (me) was currently in the US, which I am NOT. She then wrote "N/A - not currently in US". But I was there from mid 2015 to mid 2016 on a J-1. So was the lawyer right about not having to send in the I-94 or will we get an RFE because of this? Thanks in advance to anyone who might have some insight.
  9. Hello everyone. Does anyone have advice or experience about question 37 on the I-127F form? It asks if your beneficiary has ever been to the United States and then right below states "If your beneficiary is currently in the United States complete the items related to I-94 records and passport information. My beneficiary has been to the United States twice since we met, but he does not currently live in the United States. How do I address this part of the form? Thank you!
  10. Hello I entered the US on a visitor visa in the beginning of 2013. At that time I was given a paper I-94. In the meantime I got married and my spouse is applying to adjust status for me. I already have received my EAD/AP. Now I'm getting ready to travel on AP and I would like to know if I need to bring my paper I-94 along? I checked online at i94.cbp.dhs.gov and my records cannot be found. Thanks in advance
  11. I went to the DMV twice trying to get an ID card. The first time i forgot to bring proof of resident and my i-94. Well the second time, i brought those, along with my ss#. Well the DMV said that since my i-94 will expired in less than 60 days, they can't issue me an ID card. Background. K1 fiance visa. Yes married in the US last month. I just want an ID card, why is it difficult? anybody know what to do? Why is it easy for people entering the country illegally to get a driver license and work permit. Here i am, doing the right, waiting in line, paying the fee, going through interview and playing the wait game. this is(removed). All i want for now is a ID card, so i don't have to carry my passport around.
  12. I'm confused if I need my beneficiary paper Form I-94 to add to the K1 visa paperwork or not. Over the past month, I've been contacting via email to U.S. Customs Border Protection (CBP) and how to obtain and receive the paper Form I-94 but the reply are not very helpful and the site is confusing me so I can't find what I really need. I tried to call them on the phone but I eventually kept going around in the redirect from robot operating so I can't get a hold of anyone to talk to. My Fiance more likely has the electronically issued # from the CBP. Otherwise, I would've probably had the paper if I found it. Meanwhile, we went to the CBP site and got the information. I'm not sure if the paper form is needed or not though. I hope to hear back from someone who can help me out with this. I know I have a long way to go, I wished I went through this papers a month ago from when I got started on it but now it's time to make up for the delayed process.
  13. Hi, My fiancé arrived on February 15th 2018, and we were just married on April 22nd. I knew that the next step was to file for Adjustment of Status, but i was under the misassumption that there wasn’t a strict time limit to do this, although I wanted to do it as soon as possible. Life happens,... a new position at work, a death in my family, trying to save the money for AOS, etc.. just literally haven’t had time to sit down and get the paperwork started until now. So I finally gathered my wits and will be working on this now until it’s finished and turned in. However, I have several questions and I need help being pointed in the right direction. My wife’s K-1 status expired 4 days ago. I called USCIS yesterday for questions about the AOS, (again under the assumption I had time to apply) and they informed me that I should have applied before the 90 days, and that she is now out of status. Which of course worries me. My my main question is are we doomed and is she de-portable now? Also, we just got married, so we want to get her name changed.. but found out also yesterday that they check I-94 along with Marriage Cert at the Social Security office to do this.. and I-94 is now 4 days expired also. Lastly, since I-94 is expired, no social security number, and we have to wait for EAD for her to work. I have no idea how long this takes. I realize that some of my unpreparedness was because I had put AOS, etc on the back burner.. which was a mistake. But this process is also very confusing. If if anyone could reach out to answer my questions, and point us in the right direction, I would be very grateful. Thanks so much
  14. Hello! My husband is filling form I-130 for me. He is a US citizen, born in US. I am Canadian. We have problems with questions 46a to 46d. I don’t have no special visa in my passport, no stamps, nothing. But I crossed the border by ground in November. It was my first trip in US. For 46a, i guess I am just on Visitor Status? Customs did not give me no papers so I do not have my Arrivals-Departure Record # needed for 46b. I went on the website, and apparently it cannot find me in the data base. All my information where correct and the same they were when I crossed the border. How can I access that information? Thanks a lot!
  15. Hello!, I am a US citizen, previously an Indian citizen. I entered the US on Apr 1 2006 and the homeland security stamp of my entry is half-faded, and kind of semi-illegible. I never exited (traveled outside) the US until I got citizenship, so I still have the I-94 that was also stamped when I entered the US. Fast forward to today, I have to go to the US consulate for a CRBA (Report of Birth Abroad) interview for my newborn daughter. Just in case the officer has trouble reading my US immigration entry stamp in my passport, is it ok to present the original I-94 that was stamped on my entry in 2006 as well, or would I run into any trouble as to why I did not hand it in when I traveled outside the US (even though the first time I traveled outside the US was as a US citizen). Apologies if this is a silly or wierd question, in advance. Thanks!

  19. My wife and I are filling out the i-485 form to apply for my status adjustment, but the issue is i lost my i-94 a long time ago. I checked the website to get a copy, but can't find it since i came into the country in 2008 before it all went digital. Is it possible to send the visa page and the stamp page in my passport along with the form, instead of filing for the i-102 replacement? It's $445 and i would love to avoid paying that fee if it's not necessary.
  20. First of all, I apologize if this isn't the right place to post this. With that said....I received not long ago an email from ESTA reminding me that it’s validity to be used to enter the country through VWP would expire soon and if I wanted to enter the US again I’d have to re-apply. I was talking to my wife about this and the I-94 topic and stuff we need to take care of for my process, between talking amongst ourselves and family members, mixed with internet searches, speculations, a lot of doubts started to creep up. These are the top 4 ones that we would like to see clarified (even though I doubt a few of them). And bare with me, some of them are probably completely ridiculous (or at least we hope). ESTA EXPIRATION CAN LEAD TO ICE REMOVAL PROCEEDINGS AGAINST AN INDIVIDUAL. WE SHOULD FILE BEFORE IT’S EXPIRATION. I find it kinda hard to believe one thing is related to another since the ESTA is basically to grant you access to enter the US without a VISA (visa waiver program). Since I overstayed my visa already is the ESTA issue even relevant to ICE/CBP? I mean, if I already overstayed my visa doesn’t this mean i am automatically disqualified from ever being eligible to the VWP through ESTA? How could this be related to ICE? Should we just file before the ESTA expires? CHECKING YOUR I-94 STATUS ON THE CBP SITE CAN EXACERBATE AND/OR INITIATE REMOVAL PROCEEDINGS ESPECIALLY IF ESTA HAS EXPIRED AND/OR YOU HAVE OVERSTAYED As I was trying to fill out my I-485 I was checking to see if I had or could access my I-94 document on the CBP site. Which I couldn’t. I later read on the USCIS site that if I was never given this paper the stamp on my passport will do. Anyone know if this is the case btw? Also, am I at risk because I checked the CBP site, IE, did I flag myself because I entered my info in the website as they were telling me? IT COULD BE THAT I ALREADY HAVE PROCEEDINGS AGAINST ME AND NOT EVEN KNOW IT (MOSTLY DUE TO CHECKING THE CBP SITE) Now, this one I worry a little about since it would nullify the AoS. So, is there anyway to know this? I heard they will mail you but what if you recently moved? EVEN IF CBP LET ME ENTER THE COUNTRY THE PATROL OFFICER COULD HAVE FLAGGED ME ON HIS COMPUTER IF HE HAD ANY SUSPICIONS AND STILL LET ME ENTER THE US. THIS WOULD LATER BE USED AGAINST ME IF I EVER APPLIED FOR AOS/ETC. I have no clue what to say to that other than, geez. I mean, I’m already out of status and in the country, talk about messing with your mind. Why even bother apply or anything? Some of the stuff on the net just makes it seem like a dubious lost cause. But, if you have intent to migrate it could be flagged by the border patrol officer and this could be pulled up in your application review? Wouldn't the patrol officer just deny your entry instead? Now I tried to check some of this info out, to see what would apply to our case but it’s hard to tell, especially with the ESTA expiration. All I was able to get was a depression thinking the ICE is coming for me 24/7 and even if it doesn't, it's a lost cause since we will be flagged on our interview. Any thoughts? Are we overreacting? Thanks!
  21. i got married within the 90 days, but my i-94 expired and i havent filed for an AOS. Ive read some post from years ago where apparently you dont need to also file the I-130 form, but in recent post from other sites, some lawyers agree to the premise that as the beneficiary is now on a visa overstay, therefore with an unlawful status, the petitioner (my husband) has to file the already mentioned form. Has anybody dealt with this issue in recent years or know how to proceed? thanks a lot in advance.
  22. I need advice/someone been through this I’m here in the US with my husband. We are on M-1/M-2 visa. We applied for extension two months before our i-94 date expires. We just received that our i-539 is denied. I’m currently 38 weeks pregnant which means I can’t fly. We applied for OPT (optional practical training) but haven’t received anything yet. 1) My i-94 has expired but I filed the extension 60 days before and now I can’t fly. What to do? 2) Is the i-539 form related to the opt? Does that mean the opt will be denied too?
  23. Hi guys I came from Brazil in 2009 with a tourist visa and lost my while moving i-94 along with password that had visa. Didn't file police report because I didn't realize it until much later about it. Wasn't allowed to get an i-94 online since they only keep records of the last 5 years I believe so I opened a ticket on CBP website explaning the situation along with the passport number and day i arrived and visa number, and after a month they sent me an email containing my full name, admission number, DOB, country of citizenship, admission code,arrival-port, and document type... I'm filling for adjustment of status through my spouse and I'm just wondering if that's enough to prove that I came here legally???
  24. My (now) wife came into the US from Canada on December 1st and was given until March 1, 2018 to find a job on her I-94 which is attached to her passport. On Feb 16th, we got married, however we need to wait for the Marriage Certificate to get processed before we send in the paperwork as we need to attach a copy of said Marriage Certificate to the packet. We also need to send a copy of the I-94 that is attached to her passport. Will she be deportable since the packet will be sent after March 1?
  25. Hi All, A friend of mine is filing for AOS and entered the US via land driving from Canada. In order to fill in the 1-94 section on the forms, she went on the required site to get the i-94 information. The site does not show her last entry, only the one before when she arrived by air. What is she supposed to do in this situation? Put the date on the i-94 or the date that she actually entered? Will this pose a problem?
