  1. My sons aos was denied (letter will be added) I don’t know what to do from here. I forgot to give in a form in a rfe so they denied. I have the form it is just my genuine mistake. I’m being told to file a i290b for motion to reopen and reconsider And then being told to refile. Someone please help me. (it won’t let me post the picture of the paper)
  2. When I was a child, under 10 years old, I was brought to the United States with a K-2 Visa and have been here ever since (am now slightly older than 21). My K-1 visa mother married my stepfather during the 90 day period, but they never went through the application process for the green card for my mom or myself. They have not made any progress on my, or my mom's behalf, so I am taking things into my own hands as I would like to get my green card so I can finish school, gain employment and travel. I am hoping to be able to complete all required documentation with minimal involvement to get signatures, proof documents, etc. from my stepdad and mom. From free consultations I have gotten a list of documents that I need to complete including I-485, I-765, I-131, I-864, etc. I am getting these completed and going to be talking with some free resources I have access through college that I attended for a period of time. Just to help my anxiety, if I go through this process and get denied at the end, what are the chances I get sent back to my mothers home country that I have very little relation to. Any tips and advice, as I wasn't able to find any similar posts to this situation, would be helpful. I think this is similar to the Matter of Le case from 2011. Thank you.
  3. Note: When filing for Adjustment of Status K1 and K3 Visa holders are now required to submit their paperwork to the National Address (Chicago Lockbox) instead of at their local CIS office. This procedure became effective for all applicants in April 2005. After the National office completes initial processing your case will be referred to your local CIS office where you will be interviewed for your permanent residency or be transferred to CSC. Prior to this the national office will send you communications requesting biometrics be taken and schedule an interview with you for this. To determine the amount of time it will take your local office to schedule your interview appointment refer to Processing Times page and click on USCIS District Processing Times link Download the Following Forms: 1. I-485 2. I-944 (no longer required as of March 9, 2021) 3. I-864 4. I-765 (optional) 5. I-131 (optional) 6. G-1145 (optional) The above forms can be filled out on your computer and printed. Make sure you sign and date them as required. Anything you cannot fit by typing, you can handwrite (very neatly) in black ink in the blank instead. You should always verify the current forms at www.uscis.gov. Assembling the I-485 Package: Checklist Forms and Documents (follow these assembly instructions. All supporting documents must be in English or be translated as noted here.): 1. Payment as required by USCIS. Use a personal check so you can track the payment. Money Orders are also accepted. Read the Guide to Paying USCIS Immigration Fees. Be sure to include the payment for both the I-485 and the biometrics fee*. >> The fee for I-485 applications includes the cost of the I-131 and I-765 (no need to pay for them if filed with or while your I-485 application is pending adjudication). 2. Cover Page. This should include the applicants contact information, a description of the benefit being filed for ("Immediate Relative (Spouse) Family Based Adjustment of Status Application") and a table of contents listing the major items in the packet. If you need additional room to explain your case, attach a separate sheet and list the attachment on the cover sheet. Make sure to sign and date the cover sheet. 3. Form I-485: Petition for Alien Relative (note: use the non US Citizen spouse's married name on this form and list previous name/names) 4. Form I-944 (Declaration of Self-Sufficiency with applicable supporting documents) (no longer required as of March 9, 2021) 5. Copy of the non US Citizen Spouses Passport (biographical page as well as entry stamps). 5a. Copy of the non US Citizen Spouses K-1 or K-3 Visa from Passport 6. K-1 Visa Holders: Submit Copy of NOA2 "Approval" for I-129F ** K-3 Visa Holders: Submit Copy of NOA2 "Approval" for I-130 7. Electronic I-94 Copy or (for older entries) a copy of the non US Citizen Spouses valid paper I-94 (front and back of form) 8. A copy of the intending immigrant's birth certificate along with English translation. (If in any language other than English) 9. A copy of your marriage certificate. Note: While a regular copy is allowed, submitting a certified copy is preferred as some members have received an RFE asking for this (so if one is available use that instead). 10. Two passport-type photos (see specification) of the Non US Citizen Spouse. Write the full name and A# on the back using a soft felt tipped pen or pencil. Place in a plastic bag and label the bag "Photo of <Insert Name>". Attach the bag to a sheet of paper and place behind the I-485. 11. I-693, Medical Examination of Aliens Seeking Adjustment of Status.I-693, Medical Examination of Aliens Seeking Adjustment of Status. 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. If you are missing any shots from your overseas medical a I-693 vaccination transcription is required to be completed by seeing a Civil Surgeon to have certain portions of the I-693 completed and have the Civil Surgeon certify the form (sealing the original in an envelope and giving you a copy). 12. I-864, Affidavit of Support (see poverty limits here) >> Include any additional required supporting documentation 13. I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, if you want to work while your application is processed (optional) >> Include any additional required supporting documentation or photos as well as payment as noted here. 14. I-131, Application for Travel Document, if you need to travel outside the United States while your application is processed (optional) >> Include any additional required supporting documentation or photos as well as payment as noted here. * Fingerprint fee not needed for applicants under 14 ** Should this document be misplaced/lost/never received you can file an I-824 to receive a duplicate copy via mail. "Cover Page" Information: In the checklist above it is recommended that you include a Cover Page with your application. While this is optional, filing a cover page will help the USCIS understand what benefit your are applying for and specifically what items you have included in your package. Again, make sure the cover page includes: -- the applicants contact information (name, address, phone number) -- A description of the benefit you are applying for, (Immediate Relative (Spouse) Family Based Adjustment of Status Application) -- A table of contents listing the major items in your package (i.e. I-485 and evidence, I-765, I-131, etc) -- A line with the applicants signature and date I-944 (Declaration of Self-Sufficiency) Information: This form is required to be submitted with your I-485 for all applicants, and is in addition to the required I-864 (Affidavit of Support). The supporting documents list is lengthy and includes a tax transcript (not actual tax return) of the U.S. citizen, last foreign tax return filed by the fiancé, asset statements, certificates for any English courses taken, higher education verification, if applicable (including diplomas and equivalency evaluations), and several other onerous requirements. The most troublesome item is the requirement for a U.S. credit bureau credit report, or a letter from a credit bureau stating that no credit report is available. Since most recent immigrants will not have a credit record in the U.S., no credit report will be available, and the 3 credit bureaus have not been issuing letters stating no report is available. Our best advice at this point is to write a letter explaining why no credit report is available. You can find an example of this letter and an example filled out I-944 here. Attach "E-Notification" Form (Optional) Clip a completed G-1145, E-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance, to the first page of your application (on top of the cover page). By completing this form and attaching it, USCIS will send you an email and/or text message to alert you when your application was received. Where to File Everything: Applicants are required to mail applications to a national mailbox (Chicago) as stated on the form (not your local USCIS office). Be sure to mail the package with return receipt requested / delivery confirmation. Send via USPS. IMPORTANT! Make TWO copies of the entire package before you send it in. This includes the money orders too. You want to have a perfect replica of the package you are sending in. All Forms that you submit must be originals with original signatures. Supporting Evidence that you submit may be photocopies. Retain ALL original supporting Evidence since the USCIS has the right to check them by issuing an RFE (Request For Evidence). If you receive an RFE, follow the direction exactly, and make two copies of what you sent back. During any future interviews the USCIS may also want to examine the original supporting evidence. After Filing: What Happens? I-485's can take anywhere from several months to several years to be approved depending on where you live (every local office has a different waiting period). This delay often leaves the petitioner feeling completely hopeless of ever receiving approval. DO NOT GIVE UP! Though it seems like forever, the CIS will eventually get to your petition. In the mean time make sure your EAD for working is valid (renew when needed) and that you have an AP for any neccesary travel you have planned. Listed below are the main items that will happen while the beneficiary's I-485 is being processed. Employment Authorization and Advance Parole Processing If you filed for Employment Authorization and/or Advance Parole petitions are generally processed within 90 days of filing. During that wait the beneficiary (non-US Citizen Spouse) will be sent a notice in the mail to schedule an appointment at the nearest USCIS biometrics office to have their fingerprints and photos taken. It is important follow the instructions in this notice and to schedule the biometrics appointment in a timely fashion. Below are estimated waiting times for these benefits: Estimated EAD Processing Times Estimated AP Processing Times As a note, in an emergency where travel outside of the United States is needed (while a beneficiary's I-485 in still being processed) an Advance Parole can be obtained quickly by scheduling an Info-Pass appointment at your local USCIS office. You must show proof (doctors note, etc) that the travel is a true emergency (such as to see a critically ill relative or other true emergency) and file an I-131 (AP) in person. If approved the AP is likely be issued the same day. Do not attempt to leave the country without an AP as this can result in the beneficiary's I-485 being considered "abandoned" and will require a new Visa to enter the US (and refiling of the I-485). Biometrics Your beneficiary (non-US Citizen Spouse) will be required to have their biometrics taken as part of the I-485 processing (fingerprints and photos). The beneficiary will be sent a notice in the mail to schedule an appointment at the nearest USCIS biometrics office to have their fingerprints and photos taken. It is important follow the instructions in this notice and to schedule the biometrics appointment in a timely fashion. This can typically precede the interview date by up to 15 months, however it is usually much closer. Interview (in person) for Adjustment of Status Eventually most people (see exception below) will receive a letter from the CIS informing you of your interview date. It will include instructions on what to bring to the interview and any required items you may need to complete before hand. One of the most critical items requested will be "evidence of the relationship" which proves that your marriage is true and faithful (i.e. photos, joint checking account, joint lease, joint mortgage, and birth certificates of children if any, etc.). Also, it is important to bring the current passport of the beneficiary to the interview. The interview is fairly painless and may be video recorded and lasts between 15-30 minutes. If approved you will be mailed your "green-card" shortly after the interview date (weeks). Interview Exception. In some cases a beneficiary's Adjustment of Status case may be transfered to the California Service Center (possibly another location) where the CIS will attempt to complete processing without requirinig an "in person" interview. There is no particular way to know if this will happen to your case however if this does happen then you will not be required to attend an interview in person. If the I-485 is approved the beneficiary's green card will simply be mailed to them. NOTES: (1) It is possible that at your interview a tardy namecheck or FBI clearance may hold up a final "approval" of the I-485 after the interview. Permanent Resident status does not start until the case is *actually* approved, which may be a later date than the interview. The final issued green card will show the validity date. (2) If the beneficiary and petitioner have been married less than two years at the time the I-485 is approved then the beneficiary will receive what is called a "conditional" legal permanent residence. This simply means that the beneficiary will have to renew his/her greencard 2 years from the date it was originally "issued" by filing an I-751 to remove conditional status. When filing this form you will need to again show proof of your valid and ongoing marriage.
  4. My wife and I (I am a US citizen) got married in Asheville (where much of my family lives) and were on our little honey moon road-trip back to Los Angeles when, going through Texas, we got stopped at an immigration checkpoint. Due to my wife being out of status (details in the link below) they said we needed to file our paperwork immediately (which we had mostly prepared and presented to them) or we would be detained at the next checkpoint. We did so the following morning (today) -packages I-130, I-485 and form I-765. Details of my wife being out of status: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/400481-aos-from-overstay-f1-visa/ Today, we went through another checkpoint and despite having proof of mailing the package this morning via USPS (and an exact copy of the package we mailed), they said we needed to get an I-797 Notice of Action before we could continue our travel back to Los Angeles. However, reading on the USCIS website, it says that the 797 form doesn't actually protect my wife in any way although some agencies may honor it to pass through checkpoints: "USCIS recognizes that some state, local, public, or private benefit granting agencies may accept Form I-797C as collateral evidence for awarding a benefit they administer. USCIS reminds those agencies that Form I-797C is only a receipt proving an applicant has submitted a benefit request; USCIS has not determined whether that applicant is eligible for an immigration benefit." They released my wife, but not without first threatening to send her to a detention center in El Paso. They warned us that the next checkpoint we encountered may not let us (her) pass. They assured us that the I-797 would 100 percent secure her passage (despite what I learned by reading the USCIS website afterwards), just as the first checkpoint had assured us that showing proof of mailing the application would keep us safe on our way back to LA. At the moment, we are in Alpine, TX -as far as we know- surrounded by checkpoints in every direction but south. Because of the severity of the potential consequences and the different, seemingly inaccurate processes each checkpoint has told us to keep us "safe," does anyone have any experience or knowledge to help us plan a course of action to return home safely to Los Angeles? Thank you so much for any insight!
  5. Hey guys! I just graduated from college in April, and got married to a U.S. citizen in May. Before getting married I submitted an opt i765 late April because everyone else was doing it. Now me and my wife are filing i130 and i485. It’s been more than a month and my opt hasn’t been approved yet (I know it takes 2-3 months). My question is should I wait for my opt to be either approved or rejected before submitting my green card package? Because on my opt I had my status as single, and my status on i485 will be married…. I don’t know if that will be a problem at all. thank you!
  6. So my husband and I had our interview October 6, 2021 for adjustment I-485 from K1. We thought everything went great until: - The officer handed us a "file being held for review" letter. - On November 16, 2021 we received an RFE and started preparing - On December 13th uploaded everything onto the USCIS portal and met the deadline which was December 21st - I waited 60 days as told then I called USCIS in January to check on things and agent confirmed he saw all evidence and send a notice to the interviewing officer to review and get back to us within 30 days - I went to my post office and opened a letter today which was dated March 7th and it was a denial stating we never submitted the documents required by December 21st and therefore we are considered ABANDONED. (#######!!!) - Letter also stated we can not appeal but can file a motion to reconsider I-290b. What would you all do in this case besides the obvious which is file an I-290b. Should I create an infopass and go down to the USCIS office, hire a lawyer or?? Thanks,
  7. Hello everyone, I'm a F-1 student married to a USC, had a question about Employment history for the last 5 years. I worked two different desk jobs at my university during the same time in 2018 but I don't have 2 w-2s for them since it was the same employer (the University). Should I include the 2 jobs separately on my work history and include an explanation at the end or do something else. I'm really confused and any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance
  8. I am in the US on a F-1 visa and got married to my wife last month who is a USC. I am currently filling up the form I485 and can't seem to find the right answer for this question. I haven't filed any forms yet.Thanks
  9. Hello my wife is a resident alien and wants to travel but we haven’t completed out adjustment of status yet. Can we file an i131 and get her permission to travel even though we haven’t submitted a i485.
  10. I have a valid Advance Parole EAD card and I am expecting to be abroad between the i-485 approval and receiving the actual green card. Sadly I have various information that contradicts or in practice makes it impossible. There's the risk that the card wouldn't be received in the US in time to ship it to me while abroad. Various agents from USCIS have told me that the AP would remain valid until the expiration date. CBP has said the approved green card invalidates the AP (therefore contradicting USCIS and showing who has the real authority here). USCIS is saying my field office's info pass appointments wouldn't be made in time of my travel, nor are they accepting walk-in due to COVID. A lawyer has pointed out it is the green card holder's right to have proof of their status (despite not being able to schedule or walk-in to request a stamp in my passport to prove the 485's approval). What have you seen, heard or experienced in regards to re-entering the US with an AP card and a recently approved green card, but without the card in-person?
  11. My Fiance just got here a week ago and we are trying to figure out what to do, We saw that we need to file an I-485 Adjustment of Status after we got married but my question is do we REALLY need to file I-765 and I-131? I was under the impression that once AOS is approved then he can actually work in the USA legally and can travel out of the USA once that AOS is approved? Am i correct? I understand that filing I-765 will make it quicker for him to work legally while waiting for the AOS result.... Thank You in Advance for any answers.
  12. Hi everyone, My husband is encountering some difficulty with renewing his driver license. His EAD/AP combo card expired this past Wednesday, and his Texas DL expired along with it. He sent his renewal applications for the EAD and AP back in May. He has IOE receipt numbers (which I thought were supposed to process quicker!) Apart from receiving his I797 Notice saying that his EAD would automatically be extended for an additional 180 days after it expires and another notice stating that USCIS would re-use his biometrics taken last year, it has been radio silent. He had an appointment to renew his DL last week at the DMV in Fort Worth and brought his I797 extension letter along with his combo card that was about to expire. As expected, the DMV employee AND the employee’s supervisor were not familiar with immigration law. My husband had to explain over and over again that his extension letter is proof from US Immigration that his work permit will remain valid beyond its expiration date. He showed them the pages we printed out from the USCIS website that explained the nature of the extension in length, but they wouldn’t budge because all they were seeing in their system was that his work permit was about to expire. They said they couldn’t issue a new license based on that information. Thankfully, my husband knew to ask them to run a “second verification,” which is when the DMV contacts Homeland Security to inquire about a person’s immigration status and driving eligibility. It usually takes 3-5 days to run this check. We just received a letter from DPS dated Sept. 16 - the day after my husband came in for his DMV appointment. It stated that DHS was not able to verify his documents. We are at a loss because we know of other people here in TX who were able to successfully get their documents verified during this second stage. DPS stated that they have forwarded the documents to USCIS for a THIRD verification. Apparently it can take USCIS up to 20 days to respond… Has anyone in TX encountered a similar outcome? Was the third verification stage successful for you? I’m wondering if we are facing these road blocks because we went in and tried to renew the license BEFORE his EAD expired. The other posters who shared their experiences stated that they went in after their cards expired. This is such a hassle, as my husband has to drive regularly around our city for his job. I just checked with USCIS and they said that all looks good with his application, but it’s still pending….
  13. I am new to this forum. I just filed marriage based AOS this week. I am the beneficiary. Visajourney guides as well as individual members on this forum has been extremely helpful. They gave me confidence and knowledge to file my case myself. Creating this thread for all September AOS files to share their journey as we go through the process and next few months and years. Good luck everyone.
  14. I found it strange that after my husbands green card interview we would get an RFE asking for police clearance as well as the same evidence we SHOULD present on removal of conditions. Anyone else get a request for police clearance as an AOS request AFTER the interview? Very odd (and irritating). Adj from K1 by the way. Thanks.
  15. Hello forum, I am filing for I-485, I was involved in a traffic accident last September. My license was expired at the time the incident happened. There were no injuries and I was not arrested, I am waiting for my hearing in April this year with two counts, improper turn and unlicensed operation. In the question 25, I have marked yes and provided all the details in the last page. Now I am wondering if I should do the same for the form I-765, should I submit form i765 along with I-485 or should I just wait until I have the court's disposition? Big thanks, Vinh

  18. I don't understand much of this website yet. I'm trying to fill out my profile but can't really make out what all the acronyms mean. My question is if anyone know if I still need an I20 for flight training after submitting and I485? I don't think so, but I'm not sure. I'd like to have some reference to where it's referenced. 2009 got married to my American wife (5 children) Entered the states in Aug 2021 on I20 Started flight training in September Filled I485 in December Received the receipt 15 jan 2022. Biometrics appointment is on the 9th of Feb. My I20 will expire in March. The I20 is tied to my flight school. I want to change flight schools. Normally I'd need a new I20,.... but having this pending status, do I still need that I20?
  19. Following my husband‘s green card interview we received an RFE. I uploaded all the required documents and photos online as advised by my lawyer RATHER than mail it in. Evidence has been uploaded two weeks ago. Now we wait. Anyone else go through this and how long did you wait before you heard anything?
  20. (reposting to the appropriate forum) Hi everyone! This is my first time here. I was hoping I could get some assistance from people who have knowledge regarding filling out the forms I-130 and I-485. Form I-130: 1. I moved to a new city to attend school. My apartment is literally next to my husband's house. We recently got married and is technically living with me (actually ever since I moved to his neighborhood a year back), but not really lol He comes home to me (sleeps here), but all of his clothes and personal belongings are at his parents' house. It makes no sense for us to be moving all of his belongings here when he can just walk over there to do whatever. We have separate bank accounts, but we do have a joint account that's just linked to our personal bank accounts if that makes sense. Hence, we don't really have proof (in terms of bills with his name using my address and vice versa) to show that he technically lives with me. So, do I put my address? Form I-485: 1. Part 2, #2: Does 245(i) only applicable if the petition is on or before April 2000? Also, what type of waiver of forgiveness form if one overstayed their visa? 245a? 2. Part 3, #1: What does "Have you ever applied for an immigrant visa to obtain permanent resident status at a U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate abroad?" mean? --- I mean I was petitioned under an F4 visa a few years ago, and applied for AOS, but was denied because I over-aged. But I'm confused about the whole "U.S. Embassy". Is it referring to submitting an immigrant visa in the United States or physically at the U.S. Embassy? Because then I am not sure what to put under the 'Location of the U.S. Embassy'. We submitted (mailed) it to where the processing place is. 3. Part 8, #1: "Have you EVER been a member of, involved in, or in any way associated with any organization, association, fund, foundation, party, club, society, or similar group in the United States or in any other location in the world including any military service?" --- I am currently part of an organization in school (academic related) and was part of a small cultural organization, but I am not sure if it's referring to that. 4. Part 8, #61: What's considered a public assistance? Is the pandemic check considered as one? What about tuition waiver for in-state tuition? Last question: Do I include my husband's passport as proof of citizenship or is the certificate of citizenship enough? I apologize if I asked a lot of questions. I've been working on these forms on and off trying to find answers until I found this forum. I appreciate anyone's input. Thank you for your time!
  21. My husband went back to his country due to an emergency, (which did not rise to the level of USCIS emergency advance parole.) In any case, I wrote a letter to USCIS to withdraw the I485 and the work permit and advanced parole, so that then I can proceed to file for a spousal visa, my question is does anyone know how long USCIS will take to respond, we have checked online our status and still shows in progress. Thanks
  22. Hi today Was my i485 interview in new york fedral plaza . I was here on F1 visa my mom is a US citizen and i am 33 years old. When i got my EAD 5 months back i stopped going to school and my school terminated me. Today was my interview and they asked me when did you stopped going to school i said them in the month of may 2021. At last the interviewer told me you are out of your status as you do not come under immediate relative as i am above 21. She gave me a paper which says your case is being held for review. Please anyone can tell me what does this means.
  23. Hi, Let's say my i-129f gets approved before my i-130. Xhat is the point of Adjusment of Status then? Like will they abandon the i-130? Can't I just wait for the i-130 to be approved and come back to my country when I need to finish the process ? Also, if I apply for EAD, can I leave the US with my K-3 or will they consider as abandonment of EAD ? Thank you so much for your help
  24. Hi Everyone, I will be adjusting my status from tourist visa. Already, my i130 was approved and filled and signed i485 along with i765 & i131. My questions are, 1. Can I assemble and include all the forms in the same envelope? or do I need to file each and every form separately? 2. What is the name of the envelope that I need to use? Any suggestions on the envelope? And where can I get it from? 3. What to mention on the envelope? And do I need to mention "from" details? and is there anything else I need to include on the envelope? 4. What is the best courier to send my packet (USPS, UPS, DHL or FedEx)? Please guide me. I'm clueless.
  25. Hi Everyone, Today I received RFE for Birth Certificate. I have already submitted color copy of my BC which is in Native and English Language (Seperated with / ). I see on my uscis account they have uploaded black and white BC which i submitted initialy. RFE I got says, The applicant, ___________________________________, must submit a copy of their birth certificate issued by the appropriate civil authority in their country of birth. We will only accept a long-form birth certificate which lists at least one parent. If the document is in a foreign language, the applicant must include a full English translation along with a certification from the translator verifying that the translation is complete and accurate, and that they are competent to translate from the foreign language to English. 1) Do I need to translate this BC with certified translator or should I resubmit the same? 2) While responding to this RFE online what should I attach? (Cover Letter, RFE Letter, Copy of Original BC, Translated Copy of BC & Cetification from translator) Thank you in advance for guiding me.
