  1. My wife has her interview scheduled for Friday April 3rd. Currently, our local ASC office is not closed according to the USCIS webpage. I am serving in the USAF, and the DoD has been implementing measures to avoid this COVID-19 pandemic. As of this posting, USCIS has not sent us any correspondence saying that her interview has been rescheduled due to COVID-19. After speaking with my leadership, I am having concerns that the USAF may not allow my wife and I to travel to our ASC for her interview because of this outbreak. If we can't make it due to these circumstances, can I reschedule the interview with USCIS? Will we have to re-submit all of the paperwork again and pay the fees? I know this may be a difficult question to answer, but I am just wondering if anyone else is currently having a similar situation. Trying to contact USCIS over the phone is a nightmare and seems nearly impossible to reach an actual customer service representative. V/R
  2. Has anyone sent in their AOS packages lately? Have you gotten any response as yet? Please share any details you may have.
  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-864 2. I-485 3. I-765 (optional) 4. I-131 (optional) 5. 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. Copy of the non US Citizen Spouses Passport (biographical page as well as entry stamps). 4a. Copy of the non US Citizen Spouses K-1 or K-3 Visa from Passport 5. K-1 Visa Holders: Submit Copy of NOA2 "Approval" for I-129F ** K-3 Visa Holders: Submit Copy of NOA2 "Approval" for I-130 6. 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) 7. A copy of the intending immigrant's birth certificate along with English translation. (If in any language other than English) 8. 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). 9. 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. 10. 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). 11. I-864, Affidavit of Support (see poverty limits here) >> Include any additional required supporting documentation 12. 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. 13. 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 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. Hello, My situation is: I'm a US citizen, never employed, and I'm dependent on my parent. they have been maintaining me my whole life. So I never filed taxes in my whole life. and I do not make any type of income ! nor I have any assets. The Case: I got married and my wife is filing AOS. For the affidavit, I had a joint sponsor filing separate i864. For my i864 I believe I'm required to attach a letter stating why I never filed taxes. what should be the reason to write, since I want it to look formal. I had this sample but I think it might need to be edited To Whom It May Concern I, ABCD, XXX's spouse and petitioning sponsor. I did not file any income tax return yet because I was and still dependent and maintained by my parents upon their income. Since I never had job or made any income of any type, I was not required to file an income tax return with the Internal Revenue Service. I, ABCD, certify under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States that the information I have provided in this statement are true and correct. Sincerely, ABCD help please or edit the sample Thanks
  5. Hi all, so so I have everything done for my adjustment of status application, but I just need to fill out the Checks. On the USCIS website it says that checks should have phone number pre printed or written in ink on the check. My checks don’t have my phone number pre printed on them so I’m going to have to write it on. where do I write it on? I imagine the memo section, but that space is gonna be used for “I-130 filing fee” and “I-485 fee and biometrics” Help please! What do everyone here do? Thanks!
  6. Hey guys, So I have all of my forms filled out, and all of my supporting documents, but I dont know where to send it to? I assume I send them all together and all to the same place, but which USCIS office place thing do i Send it to? I live in New York City. The forms I am sending are: i-130 i-130A i-485 i-131 i765 i864 Any help would be greatly appreciated! Cheers
  7. Hey there everyone, So I am coming really close to filing my green card package, I have filled out all my forms and have all my supporting documents, But I am still confused about the Fees. I know that some forms vary based on age, immigration status, where you are etc, so its very confusing. These are the forms I'm submitting: i130 i130a i485 i864 ( x2 - sponsor and a joint) i765 i131 Do I have to pay the total of all the fees? Do some of the forms not cost anything because they are being submitted with other forms? Do I need to pay the biometrics fee for each, or just once? Do I put it all together on one cheque or multiple? If anyone knows the answer, or has a link to something explaining it more easily than any of the resources I have found, that would be greatly appreciated! Thanks P.S. I know I am to do the i693, but I have been advised to do that when I get the interview notification so it doesn't expire.
  8. Hello, I have a pending case for I485 for more than 6 months. I have been issued the EAD/advanced parole combo card. My questions are: Can I work for multiple employers? Means I will continue to work for my company who has filed for my GC but also start doing another job? This is because of financial constraints. Can this affect my I485 interview in any way? When the second company executes I9 verification, will it pop up during my interview? Can this be a concerning issue? Thank you
  9. it has been 62 days since I filed for my adjustment of status, have received the NOA1 but have not received biometrics appointment until now! Is that normal? I am starting to get very worried Do not have previous biometrics.
  10. Hi all I am a K1 Visa recipient and my husband and I are filing our AOS soon. I have a question regarding the required tax documentation on the I-864, Affidavit of Support. I understand that if we file AOS before the end of 2019 our most recent tax year would have been 2018, and we've got that. But if we file in January 2020, would our most recent tax year be 2019 already, thus requiring the proper documentation for 2019 instead? I ask because the company my husband works for doesn't send out W2s until February, but we REALLY don't want to wait any longer to file our AOS because my I-94 had been expired since October 22nd. We've planned to file this December 16th but something came up, and we might have to reroute the budget for that one onto something else.... sigh (I know, I know, we're filing late, but life happens and so here we are...) 😅 So I'm thinking: 1) Perhaps USCIS would allow the submission of 2018 records due to the fact that tax season for 2019 won't be over until April 2020 anyways? 2) Perhaps we could include an explanation on our cover letter as to why we're submitting 2018 records despite 2019 ending? So yeah, I would appreciate any input from anyone who can help. Thank you all
  11. My Father's History: Came to us without inspection on November 11th 1995, applied for asylum and was denied and asked for Voluntary Departure on August 14, 1996. HE DID NOT LEAVE. 5 years passed, its now March 2001 and president bush granted TPS for those Salvadorians with deportation orders and no criminal records. My dad applied and was approved. 4 years later, In 2006 he applied for advanced parole and was approved. Traveled to El Salvador and re-entered the US just fine. 17 years later still with TPS and no criminal records, I filed AOS for him because I turned 21. Went to interview and since my dad does not have good memory he lied under oath and said 'he has never been in proceedings of removal' which he was, in 1996. We received a NOID (notice intention of Denial for his permanent residence) NOID says he can applied for a waiver of inadmissibility (I-601) but I looked at those criteria and its a pardon and he needs to show extreme hardship for U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident spouse or parent (NOT child) In this case, what do we do? will his AOS just get denied and end of story. What will happen once his TPS is removed in 2020?
  12. Hello, my i-130 case was transferred to the US embassy in Baghdad approximately 65 day ago for interview to be scheduled after it was "Documentarly qualified" with all docs submitted to the portal. Any one can help with what is the time frame until they will call my family for interview ? Thanks
  13. 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. 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.
  14. My husband and i have been dating for 2 years and married for about a month. I am currently on an f1 visa and we were planning on filing for i485 and i30 concurrently. The thing is he has been married before and it was an arranged marriage. After a few months they both decided that they did not want to go any further with the marriage and decided to separate like 3 years ago. He had already filed the form i30 for her and it got approved but he later decided to withdraw it and not apply for anything else. The divorce got finalized in July and we got married in early October. My question is would the previous i30 form that he filed affect my application?
  15. Hey all, Before starting, please excuse my English as English is not my first language. I am a green card holder and my wife is an F-1 Visa. We decided to get married a couple of months ago and file I-130/I-485 as I see the F2A is current when we were applying for the marriage sponsored green card. I have included all the documents including a copy of my green card and the 2018 tax return documents along with all other documents for my wife and sent them to my lawyer. My wife had her fingerprints exactly 30 days ago and we just got a mail from USCIS titled: Request For Initial Evidence stating that: - You must submit evidence to establish that the petitioner on Form I-130 is a United States Citizen. Such evidence includes: (pieces of evidence of US citizen which I obviously do not have) - I did not meet 125 percent of the federal poverty guideline for the petitioning sponsor's household size, which is around 20k as we are only 2 person/people household Here comes the confusion. I sent a copy of my green card to my lawyer and why is the request for initial evidence asking that they need proof of my US citizenship? Is this common/normal or did my lawyer messed up something while filing? (I know I could have asked my lawyer for this issue but today's Saturday and this is a bit nerve-racking moment for me to wait another day to ask lol) The second bullet point was expected since I did not meet the requirement as I was just out of college and got hired towards the end of the year. Can I submit my most recent paystub that states that my gross income up-to-date is more than 20k? Thank you in advance for any help!
  16. Hi, I had my AOS interview yesterday April 16th. The IO went over all the questions on the i-485 application and that alone took a long time. Afterwards he asked some questions about our relationship, nothing too personal, just how met, where and when, our engagement, family, my husband's previous marriage, etc. When it came to the evidence, he only asked for photos and insurance. We did have plenty of photos (places we traveled to, with family, wedding reception, etc), joint bank account statement, credit cards, taxes statement we filed jointly, a lease for a place we rented together for a while but not insurance since we just don't have insurance at the moment for several reasons. Anyway, he didn't ask for anything else but photos and health insurance. Even though I provided him with all the other paperwork previously mentioned, I forgot to give him our tax return as evidence. I genuinely just forgot that one thing plus he didn't ask for it or anything else for that matter besides the photos and insurance we didn't have. What are your suggestions? I think our taxes return is good evidence for our case and would be worth the shot to mail it as it was something I meant to submit as evidence in the interview. He did ask if we didn't have insurance because of me not having a SSN till recently which is partly true but the main reason why is because we couldn't afford it before and we have been looking for more affordable plans plus we did go to the doctor and dentist plenty of times without insurance and we never had any issues so we never felt pressured to get it. Besides that, the interview went OK.
  17. I’m about to mail my package off this week. We currently live in New York but in a few months( next March to be exact) we’ll be moving back to Georgia. (yes I know about the change of address from) New York’s processing time is currently 21.5 months to 34 months. Georgia is however roughly 10 months. Do you think this might potentially be helpful for us?
  18. My wife and I got married last year June 2018. Her i94 ended on July 2018. I'm going to file for her this month April 2019. She has overstayed for more than 180 days. My plan was to initially file i130 only then if it's approved followed by i485. But I've read somewhere that since she overstayed I need to file i130 and i485 concurrently. If I didn't it would look suspicious. is this correct? Would it really be better if they were filed together? thanks so much 😀
  19. On the AOS forms it asks if the beneficiary had any case with uscis before ( if it was denied or other) and to provide the case number. It is my understanding that it makes your process go through faster. Is there any truth to this?
  20. Hi, I have a pending I485 application for employment based green card, with I131/I765 and I140 approved. My husband also has a pending I485 through his employer, however, there is a significant risk that his employer will lay him off in the next couple of months before his I485 i adjudicated. We only recently got married (after our cases were first filed). Due to the risk of being laid off, we are now going to add him to my adjustment of status application, however, we are getting conflicting advice about whether his existing I485 application through his employer needs to be cancelled first. His employer's lawyer is saying it does need to be cancelled before he gets added to my application, and my employer's lawyers are saying nothing needs to be done as long as we advise USCIS of the other application using he A number assigned to my husband. Can you please help clarify?
  21. Hi All, I really hope someone could help me here. Yes, there are attorneys out there, who could answer my questions, but I don't have the financial means to pay for one. I've also tried to seek free legal advice, but no one in New York City seems to have availability until January, 2020. I simply can't wait that long. To make a long story short, here are some basic facts about my situation: 1) Entered the US (last entry) on an O1 Visa (Feb. 2019) 2) My job was terminated in July, 2019 3) Got married in July and applied for I-485, I-130, and I-765 4) I accidentally applied under the wrong category, C35, the first few times. It wasn't until a USCIS officer told me the category might be wrong. I had my biometrics taken in September, so everything seems to be on track with the I-485 and I-130. The I-765, however, has been denied a handful of times, and while it may be my own fault, I'm starting to questioning every single part on the form. I simply don't know what to put in certain boxes. It's getting frustrating because we're living off of my husbands salary, and I really want/need to go back to work asap. My questions are as follow: 1) I had EAD before back in 2017, but under a different category. My request for employment should be "initial," correct? 2) I entered the US on an O1 visa, but lost that status immediately followed by my termination. What is my current status, then? 3) Should I still attach my old EAD card even though it isn't relevant for this category? 4) The category I'm filing under is C9, correct? Thank you, and have a wonderful day! Best, Daniel
  22. Hi Everyone, I have a EB2 PERM for a location New York city that was applied and approved in May 2018 while I was in India. I had completed 6 years on H1B(from 2011 to 2017) and had to go back to India. Currently I have an H1B extension based on approved I-140/ AC21 and back to the US in September 2019 to Chicago, Illinois (I work for a Big 4 consulting firm and I work out of various client location). My priority dates are current now and I am eligible for Adjustment of status under cross country chargeability . For some reasons my company's immigration department(NOT lawyer) is asking me to move back to New York in case I wish to apply for AOS, citing the reason that, NYC was the location specified for the PERM when it was applied. I don't have a project there currently and just am settling down in Chicago with family. I thought I should only be moving and working out of New York city once the green card arrives, as the location in the PERM is the location for future employment post the green card arrives. Can someone clarify if this is true? Will I need to move to New York for the sake of AOS application or can I continue to work in Chicago, Illinois until the Green Card interview/approval process? At what stage of the Green card application/AOS process do I have to move to the PERM location that is New york? Details: Category : EB2 Priority Date: 1 May 2018 Country of Chargeability /Cross country Chargeability: UAE(ROW) Currently on H1B visa on 7th year extension.
  23. Has anyone used advance parole before? My husband and I are leaving the country for a few weeks and even though we have done everything correctly with getting advance parole and carrying proof of I-485 pending with us, I still get scared they won’t let my husband back in the country. 😭 He is from Mexico and I worry about the political attention that has been drawn to the border as of late.
  24. Hello everyone. Here's my timeline: Date Mailed: 01/18/2018 Date Received/Priority Date: 01/22/2018 Received Text/Email: 01/29/2018 Date Received NOA Letters: 02/02/2018 Received Biometrics Letter: 02/08/2018 I did Biometrics today. Yesterday I received a courtesy letter from USCIS on a yellow paper informing me that they have reviewed my documents and noticed that I haven't submitted the form i693 and to bring an updated from(medical exam) at an interview. They also said not to send it right now, to wait for a RFE before the interview. However, I haven't received an interview notice. I know it's too soon for that but I was wondering what it meant. Does it mean that I wouldn't get an RFIE and my case is ready to move forward?
