  1. Hi! I used a lot of vj information to filed for aos and I wanted to share with you my experience and my aos package. I'm from Argentina and I came to America in November with a J1 visa (summer work travel program), after dating my husband for a year, we got married on May 7th. According to my visa, I had to go back home before June 30th and even though I married a US citizen and I knew if I overstayed it was going to be waived, I was still so worried that I filed for AoS asap (June 19th). A few things I'm going to say before I talk about my application is that I think 50% was pure luck, it was filing at the right time and date. The other 50% making sure nothing in my application could make the officer doubt and ask for more information or evidence. I made sure everything was disclosed and explained, it must have been either a pain in the ### or a blessing for whoever that took my case cause it was 400 pages long lol. Also the fact that my office was Reno helped a lot, I went twice for biometrics and interview and there was no one, the parking lot was empty, so they're pretty low on cases there. I didn't get help from a lawyer 'cause I considered my case was simple, it wasn't worth the money, we were on lockdown so I didn't have much else to do but getting obsessed with sending the perfect application, visiting hundreds of VJs topics and watching youtube videos. Another thing, specifically for I130 is that I was scared because my husband and I are in our early 20s, we got married a year after meeting each other, 7 months out of those 12 we were in a long distance relationship, he still lived with his parents, we both had part time jobs, we don't own anything, so we had to prove our love by telling them our story. How meant to be we are, how we clicked instantly, how we talked 3 hours a day every day, how I told him he could come to visit me and the next day he went to get his passport and bought flight tickets to see me, how we can't imagine being away from each other, that we did it for 7 months and we don't want to do it ever again, how we have plans for the future, etc. Our bonafide evidence was full of stories and we attached them with tickets, passes, reservations, photos, invitations. By the time of the interview we did gather a lot of primary evidence and the officer that interviewed us was more than pleased. This was my package main cover letter I had to explain a few things when I filed: 1. During a road trip all my forms of identification were stolen, so I lost my passport with my visa stamp and my country ids. Thankfully, I was able to get an emergency passport and sent that in the package with an explanation of what happened and secondary proof that I was here legally such as letters from my sponsors, employers, job reviews and flight tickets. 2. I was given an extension of my visa because of the pandemic, so I sent a letter from my sponsor that explains the extension and extra information on why I was given this extension (the borders of my country were closed and all my flights were canceled) 3. My husband was a dependent of him mom for 2017 tax returns so we wrote a letter that his mom signed. 4. I944 was intense haha, we couldn't get IRS transcripts before sending the application because at that time IRS offices were closed, so we sent the biggest WE TRIED letter, where we stated that we received no answer from IRS so we were going to send 1040s and W2s. 5. We didn't have a credit score or report because none of us has credit cars, loans, car, leases, anything. We're still pretty young and we haven't thought all that out yet (we should soon). So we explained that, we sent transunion letter saying we didn't have any of that, screenshots of the experian website saying they couldn't find me and I tried to get a credit card online and I didn't qualified. 6. For Education, I did an evaluation of my college transcripts with a NACES authorized agency (IEE), also I graduated from college but I came to America before i could sign my diploma so I don't have my diploma with me and that's the way I can prove I graduated, what I sent to prove I graduated was a certified letter by my college that stated that I did in fact finish college. The evaluation agency wrote that my degree was incomplete because they didn't accept the certified letter but I sent everything in my I944, cause why not. 7.I didn't send proof I know how to speak Spanish because that's my native language and in my transcripts from school we don't call Spanish classes that, we call them Language classes. I wrote a letter swearing I know Spanish and that's it. When I filed I was afraid that my husband's tax return were going to look bad, because in 2019 he made a little over the percentage he had to make to sponsor me, in 2018 he made half of that percentage and in 2017 he was a minor and was a dependent of his mom. Still I sent all that information because if I disclosed it first it means I'm ahead of any questions they can ask us. That's just my mindset, I know a lot of people believe it's better to just put the last tax return information and that's fine. Also when we filed, my husband was unemployed and so was I (pandemic related), so we sent his last pay stubs and that's all. (He did have a part time job but that didn't make enough to support me at that time and he didn't file for unemployment) Another thing is that (PLEASE DONT DO IT) I worked in the past unauthorized, this was way before I met my husband and I didn't think of the consequences, I had no idea at some point it could come back to bite me. So, I disclosed it, I said from what date to what date and in I485 I said yes to working unauthorized and violating the terms of conditions of my nonimmigrant status. So this was my timeline and here's what I sent the June 2020 filers group and hour after the interview: And that's it. Right now, I have a job offer and I'm waiting for my green card to arrive. I'm excited about the winter, being with my husband without having to think of visas, uscis, forms, is great. I did get only the conditional green card, so in 2 years I'll have to do this again hahah. I hope this long post helps you, please let me know if you have any questions, this was my experience, probably had a few mistakes, it's not perfect, I was just very lucky this process went as smoothly as it did. Thank you thank you thank you VJ members for answering all my questions and giving me so much information!
  2. Hey everyone, I'm having a hard time finding the most recent answers to this as these forms updated recently. I submitted my husband's AOS package (I-130, I-485, I-765, I-131) on May 6th, it was received in Chicago on May 8th. We downloaded and starting working on these forms in early March so when the changes to the I-485, I-944, public charge rule updated, I didn't realize it till it the package was already sent. All other forms in our package are the latest edition, but the I-485 and I-864 are one edition old. We also included the I-944 with all evidence, which is not needed now? Should we expect a full rejection/return of the package and prepare the new forms to resend? I am worried because with the longer processing times, my husband's B-2 expires on May 22nd and I don't want him to get in trouble for overstaying. Thank you for the help!
  3. On May last year I sent the whole package for adjustment of status (i-485 / i-130/ i-130a/ i-944) two weeks later I got the confirmation that my package was received and the check was cashed, the letter also said I would receive a following letter with confirmation for my Biometrics, but I haven't received it yet, and its been almost 1 year, should I be worried or this is normal time because of covid? does hiring a lawyer help? BTW Im located in Orlando, FL. thanks for your comments! Ari
  4. Hi everyone, This morning I learnt that the form i-944, public charge rule, was dismissed starting on March 9th 2021. I literally got tears to my eyes from how frustrated I felt. I sent my application for AOS in June 2020 and it was rejected in August because of that form not being included (we didn't know about it when we filed). Then we filed again right away WITHOUT that form because it was not required anymore and in NOVEMBER 2020 we got a RFE asking to mail that form, (uscis resumed it once again) that we sent in January 2021 cause it takes forever to put together all the (removed)they require. So, a total of almost 8 MONTHS wasted because of that (removed) form. And now it has been permanently dismissed!!!!!!!! And here I am, can't work, can't get a driving license, can't go visit my family because of that delay. (I still haven't gotten my ead+AP card!!) And in the meantime I had a daughter, which means that every time that I need to go buy groceries or to the pediatrician, I have to walk as I can't drive. We're talking of 6-7-8-9 miles on foot when it's 90-100° outside (I'm in California). Not to mention that I can't contribute to the family finances and that my father had a cerebral stroke and I couldn't go visit him. And also that nobody from my family has seen my daughter yet. All that because of that stupid i-944 form. Which is not required anymore. I really wanna cry now. This post is probably useless, but I guess what I'm hoping for is some support and to know weather anybody else had similar experience and how you guys are dealing with them. Thank you all
  5. I am filing AOS for my mother and filling out the gruesome Public Charge I-944 form and stuck in the education part. The form asks to provide documentation on the education received. I do see that the instructions do say "if this evidence is unavailable, you should provide an explanation and, if possible, evidence of unavailability such as a letter from the issuing institution". It is highly impossible to gather any documentation on my mother's high school education in her hometown (foreign country) from ages ago. Does anyone know what or how I can write for the explanation of why the evidence is available? Any help or suggestions will be highly beneficial and appreciated, please.
  6. Hello all, I am in the process of filing my wife's AOS application. A question regarding household portion of the i-944. Who should i included in my wife's household? My wife currently lives with my mother and I. Just to be clear, my mother does not support us financially as my income is already sufficient. She lives with us based on Vietnamese tradition. If that is the case, should i just dont include her on the form just so things will be easier?
  7. Hello all, I am in the process of filling out of wife's AOS application. Regarding education and occupational skills, since my wife only has high school degree, which i plan to only have a diploma as evidence. I also attached a letter explaining that her passion is in Cosmetology, where my wife self-taught cosmetology, nail, make-up, etc. She does not have any certifications. Being a Vietnamese woman, do you think if i wrote a statement saying she taught herself all of this with a couple of pictures of arts of nail, does it paint a bad image of her coming here just to do nails? You know how people say vietnamese women only do nails to earn living, etc.
  8. Hello there! I am trying to finish up the I-944 and it has a list of pubic benefits and asks if ever received them, which includes the following: Any Federal, State, local, or tribal cash assistance for income maintenance; Supplemental Security Income (SSI); Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF); Federal, State or local cash benefit programs for income maintenance (often called “General Assistance” in the State context, but which may exist under other names); Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, or formerly called “Food Stamps”); Section 8 Housing Assistance under the Housing Choice Voucher Program; Section 8 Project-Based Rental Assistance (including Moderate Rehabilitation); Public Housing under the Housing Act of 1937, 42 U.S.C. 1437 et seq.; and Federally funded Medicaid I am wondering, as an Active Duty military member, do I receive any of these benefits? Because I see on question 19 it has the option to check off that my wife (beneficiary) is a spouse of an active duty person (Me/petitioner). Mainly asking my current active duty military and veteran folks!
  9. Hi! I am filling the form I-944 and have a question about the health insurance. I am from the Czech Republic & have “travel insurance” for a year which should cover any healthcare expenses here in the US. Can I submit this insurance proof as a evidence for the I-944 form or does it have to be a insurance from the US? (Since in my czech insurance there is no deductibles ot out of pocket etc. and it should cover everything) Btw. I am also confused on the assets questions. Since my spouse (US citizen) has income about 125% above the poverty guidelines, do we still have to include assets, bank account statements etc? Thank you!!! - T.
  10. Hello, My F-1 visa spouse and I are filing for her adjustment of status. Because she is an F-1 visa student, we will send evidence of her ESL certificates along with her transcripts of degree progress in USA thus far. However, her high school diploma is somewhere in Vietnam and I don’t even know if we will be able to get our hands on it or even a scanned copy. Is it necessary to send this in for I-944? We may not have access to it so I’m at a loss. We have all of her US college transcripts and certificates (one semester left until associate’s degree). I’m really curious to see what anyone did in this situation. I-944 may be scrapped soon but we rather not postpone submission any longer. Thanks guys!
  11. We submitted our package last September and finally got letters about the missing information. I know we forgot the I-130A and the I-864 and will be submitting them. However there is a new section talking about needing a I-944 Declaration of Self-Sufficiency. I'm unclear if this is needed. It says it would be if the I-485 is deemed inadmissible, however my wife is not self-sufficient as she currently can't work in the US. Is it basically another financial support form that contains just my information for taxes and assets? Any advice is appreciated. It does say that last year a waiver was in place from July 29th-September 22nd which we fell into, but anything after February 24th requires the form.
  12. Hello, I am the petitioner and my spouse is currently in the USA on a valid F-1 visa. We married 7/26/2020. We were nearly done with preparing our application to concurrently file I-130 and I-485 to adjust status. However, the I-944 is a big headache as expected and I ran into an extremely confusing dilemma. I am 22 and recently graduated from university and now make ~$40k a year as of November 2020. However, I only made a few thousand dollars in 2019 from an internship position, which is reflected in my tax return. Because of this, we decided to use my father as a joint-sponsor and file another I-864. However, I realized that my father has me listed as a dependent on his 2017, 2018, and 2019 tax returns (although I now have my own health insurance and my spouse is a beneficiary). Should my father (the joint sponsor) be listed as a member of our household income on the I-944 if he has me listed as a dependent? He even has me listed for 2020 as well since I moved out last year. My spouse and I live together in our own apartment. Does this mean I should be filing I-864A for my father instead of a separate I-864? Any guidance would be GREATLY APPRECIATED! I just need to know what him listing me as a dependent does to our application. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!
  13. I'm doing a marriage-based AOS (husband is USC). I was previously on an F-1 visa and I'm still in college. I've already submitted the I-130/I-485 packet and got an RFE for I-944, which I'm working on now. My parents support me with over 50% of my personal "income" as I'm a student, but they live in my home country and ARE NOT planning to immigrate to the US. Should I include them in my household or should I just list their support as "additional income"? If all the transfers to my bank account have been made by my father, but technically the support is coming from both of my parents (they're still married), should I just include my father of both of them in my household? If we consider the support is coming from both, they would each contribute less than 50% of my expenses since I do have a job and an income. Also, if we include my husband's income as "my financial support", my parental support would also be less than 50%. -- Here's what the I-944 instructions say (but it just seems weird considering my parents are in a different country): 1 Your Household: F. [include] 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 -- Thank you so much!
  14. Since the public charge rules went into effect, most categories of AOS filers have had to submit the I-944. Although there was an injunction that lasted a little while, submitting the I-944 has been made mandatory again. I am curious to hear from people who have submitted the I-944 with their AOS package. Considering that the I-944 requires a wide variety of supporting documents or evidence, it seems that all of this evidence is ripe for issuing RFEs. So I wanted to ask if anyone has received RFEs related to the evidence you submitted along with your I-944. For reference, I'm adjusting status from F-1, being sponsored by my USC spouse. I submitted my application end of August, but had to resubmit again at end of September after an initial rejection (due to fee payment issue). I added the I-944 with my resubmitted package. I added the following documentation as evidence: - Academic credentials: Currently enrolled PhD (enrollment letter, coursework transcript, current I-20), US masters degree transcript, foreign BS degree evaluation (from WES), copy of foreign high school diploma - Financial: Credit report, credit score, Bank account statements for last 12 months, IRS tax transcripts (3 years) - Medical: Health insurance coverage letter, insurance plan policy summary - English proficiency: Copy of TOEFL and GRE score reports
  15. My wife is the beneficiary, adjusting from K1, she has a SNN, AOS package already sent but we are responding to our I-944 RFIE. My wife doesn’t have a credit card and neither do I, we both are debt free. She has a SSN with her maiden name on it. It’s been roughly 13 months since she entered on her K1. We had tried months ago to check her credit online and nothing came up, so we tried endlessly to get one of the three major credit agencies to mail us a letter stating that she doesn’t have a report and they misspelled her common first name 4 times in a row. The 5th time, TransUnion finally sent us a letter with the right name, but upon closer inspection it is not a letter stating that she does not have a credit report, rather a letter that appears to be... a WEIRD credit report.. it shows her full married name at the top with her personal info, then under that it shows account review inquiries where we had tried to view her credit report months ago on different occasions to get them to send us a letter. Then under that, it says “special messages” and says “FILE SSN LIKELY NOT ISSUED PRIOR TO JUNE 2011”. The rest is just TransUnion’s contact info. My probably stupid question to you guys is, is this considered a credit report? It has no credit score or other information except for info on prior times we tried to find her credit report. When we try finding her credit report on Experian and Equifax, they both give error messages saying that her credit report cannot be found. Should we include these and claim she has no credit report, or DOES she have a credit report and it’s just completely blank? When we look on the TransUnion website her “report” is literally a blank drop down menu with nothing on it. Is this a glitch or a weird blank credit report? Thanks so much, any advice on this topic is much appreciated.
  16. Hey everyone, on the I-944, what should my beneficiary wife put for the question about health insurance that asks, "When does your health insurance terminate or date that it must be renewed?" She has a non-subsidized plan she purchased from the companies website that is not through an employer. I am not on the same plan as her. She cannot find a date for termination or a renewal deadline anywhere on her account or card or anything! Thanks guys
  17. Hi, I am currently preparing for i-129f. My fiance told me that I should file i-944 with i-129f but in the instruction of i-129, it doesn't say anything. From my understanding of i-944, I need to submit it when I'm in the process of adjustment of status which means after I enter the US. He called USCIS and they said I need to submit i-944 with i-129f but I'm still not sure if I need it because most of the questions in i-944 seem irrelevant to me. Does anyone file i-944 with i-129f?
  18. Hi All, Thank you for reading this! I have a specific question regarding the I-944. In part 3, I am listing my Dutch and US bank accounts. For both my bank accounts, I am providing the bank statements as evidence since this is required. However, for my Dutch bank account statement, the amounts are in euro and the words in Dutch. Since these bank statements are around 80 pages, do you have to transfer all the amounts in dollars and translate all the words (even Dutch words in other involved bank accounts in the transcripts, etc.) into English? Any help is welcome!
  19. Hey all. We are finishing up the I-944 to send in as a response to the RFIE. I have a question. Part 3. Number 15. B. Asks: What is your total annual deductible or annual premium? These are two very different things. There is only one box to type in here, which one do we put? She has catastrophic coverage, not through an employer, non-subsidized. Bought straight from the company's website. We know what her deductible is, and how much we pay monthly. Please help? Haha. Thank you!
  20. Hello, I am a US citizen trying to file for a marriage-based green card with my (non-US citizen) spouse who currently is residing within the USA. We have no dependents. We have completed the "full I-130 package", and the "full I-485 package" EXCEPT for one single item: my IRS tax transcripts required for the hellish I-944 supporting document requirements (a subset of the I-485 package). My spouse successfully used the online IRS website to instantly get her tax transcripts. However, this website has so far been a dead end for me. The reason? In order for the IRS to verify my identity and order the transcripts instantly through their online website, I must to provide one of the following identifiers: The last 8 digits of one of my credit cards (which is NOT an American Express card) A student loan account number An auto loan account number A mortgage or home equity loan account number A home equity line of credit account number The problem? I do not have ANY of these. I have never taken out a loan or mortgage at any point in my life, and my one credit card that I've used all my life is an Amex, which they do not recognize for some reason. So it looks like the instant IRS transcript access is off the table, what other options are present? I can fill out and mail Form 4506-T to an IRS office and have them mail me back the forms in 3-5 weeks, which is a painfully long delay for my entire green card application process. EXCEPT, according to the IRS helpline, the IRS offices which process these are closed due to COVID-19, so even if I send it, who knows how incredibly long it will take to get back to me. I filled out an application and mailed it last week, but don't expect to see anything come from it anytime soon, especially with how there has been a recent uptick in COVID-19. I can call the IRS Transcript Order phone line [800-908-9946] and place an order over the phone for my IRS tax transcripts, which would then take 7-10 days to be mailed to me (an annoying, but tolerable delay in my application) EXCEPT, if anyone calls this number, you'll see that it does not work! Presumably due to COVID-19, the phone order system is just unusable -- and, again, who knows how long it will remain that way?? Currently I have included my last 3 years of 1040 tax return forms, in my I-485 application as a sort of substitute for the tax transcripts even though I know that the transcripts are what they are asking for. I do know that this is not what they want in the application. ****************************** I really, really want to get this application submitted as soon as possible as my spouse and I really need her to obtain employment authorization + ability to travel back to her home country as soon as possible. So, here are my main questions: Is anyone else stuck in a similar situation? How are you handling it? Could I ... (1) mail in my I-130 package by itself, and then mail in my I-485 package later once I get my transcripts? (2) mail in BOTH my I-130 and I-485 packages with an explanation in my cover letters stating my current situation and stating that I will mail them my IRS tax transcripts as soon as it is possible for me to actually do so? Side Question: Is online I-130/I-485 package filing a thing? Is it smarter to file online given all the COVID business? It would save me some $$$ for shipping since the I-944 supporting documents make the application into a huge pile of papers... In the hopes of being able to get my transcripts online, I ordered a new VISA credit card from my bank which arrived today. I activated it and used it to purchase one thing, but when I tried to use it to get through the IRS website it (unsurprisingly) did not work. Does anyone know roughly how long it might take the IRS to "recognize" a new credit card? Thank you so much for any help or feedback, --Zach
  21. We just finished our interview, and the consul said we need to submit I-944. Our application was postmarked before Feb 24, the day when supposedly the rule is in effect. As per USCIS website "Therefore, we will apply the public charge final rule and related guidance in the USCIS Policy Manual, Volumes 2, 8 and 12, to all applications and petitions postmarked (or submitted electronically) on or after Feb. 24, 2020. If you send your application or petition by commercial courier (for example, UPS, FedEx, or DHL), we will use the date on the courier receipt as the postmark date." I know I can just comply, but I think this is an error on the consul's part. We're just waiting for the notice, I'm planning to comply at the same time include the evidence that this shouldn't be applied to my application. Any inputs will be very much appreciated.
  22. Hi, I'm in the process of filling out form I-944. The instructions I'm reading are very clear but I'm confused. My question is about Part. 2 Family Status (Your Household). My wife, my daughter and I live together. I have other kids that live with their moms back in my home country. According to the instructions, I have to list them as part of my household because I provide "... at least 50% of financial support...", even though they're not physically living with us. So, do I really have to include my other kids in the total number of household members? It's my understanding that a household is just people that are family and are living under the same roof but according to USCIS, it looks like it's anyone that depends on another. I really appreciate your help with my question.
  23. I'm collecting the documentation for the I-944 and I've stumbled upon a situation that I wasn't able to find mentioned in the forums, please let me know if I've overlooked a previous topic. Here's the situation: The foreign university undergraduate transcript is written in a foreign language but has full and complete line-by-line translations in English throughout the entire document. The instructions for the I-944 form (https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/document/forms/i-944instr-pc.pdf) state the following: "Translations. If you submit a document with information in a foreign language, you must also submit a full English translation. The translator must sign a certification that the English language translation is complete and accurate, and that he or she is competent to translate from the foreign language into English. The certification must include the translator’s signature. DHS recommends the certification contain the translator’s printed name, the signature date, and the translator’s contact information" (emphasis mine) I might be reading too deeply into the instructions, but the way it's written it seems as if a document has any information in a foreign language, a translation must be submitted. In other words, documents may not have any information printed in a foreign language— they must be fully in English. Would this transcript be accepted as-is, or should I get it "translated"? Would a third-party certification that the in-line translations are complete and accurate be a safer middle-ground? Thank you in advance! Edit: I just realized I posted this in the wrong forum, I had intended on posting it in "Adjustment of Status from Work, Student, & Tourist Visas" and I'm unable to delete the post myself.

  24. Hello everyone, I am new in this group. I am filing my I 944. I completed my MBA and I am in the US for 2 years. I got my OPT (1 Year Validity) on 11/15/2019. I started working on 02/01/2020 and I am still working on my EAD. I have issue filing the i 944 form. I haven't file taxes, this is going to be the first year for me to file taxes. My wife (USC) started working her first job 6 months ago. She's dependent under her mother in 2019 taxes. What should option should I select for myself in option 1A and my income is 39,400 per annum and she's earns around 600 to 700 per week which roughly makes 27K an annum. Should I write my and her income in the the box? I am really confuse because there's insufficient instructions given for this form.
  25. My husband and I are preparing to submit his I-485 (and all supporting forms/documents). For his I-944, he had an equivalency evaluation done by IEE and we had the results emailed to us so we just printed that out to include with our petition. However, today a mailed copy arrived and it's in a sealed envelope with a stamp over the flap. This obviously seems like a more official copy that definitely wasn't altered in anyway. So should we include the sealed copy? Or is the printed copy good enough? I'm leaning toward using the printed copy and sending the sealed one if it is requested. My husband has a Masters and Ph.D. from well known schools in Scotland, so I am hoping they won't really question the equivalency of his education anyway. Thanks!
