FAQ

Can I file I-765 along with I-485?
Yes, any I-485 applicant is entitled to file I-765 to apply for an EAD and/or file I-131 to apply for Advance Parole, for free. And it is always recommended for an I-485 applicant to apply for these two to have the ability to work and/or travel in about 90 days in case the I-485 takes much longer (it can take up to a year or more in some cases).

What do I fill out as the "current USCIS status" on form i-485?
The I-485 form was updated in June 2017!Here is a guide on how to fill out the latest I-485.
What is the process of adjusting the status for my spouse who is currently in a B1 visa and is visiting me in the US? I am a US citizen. Can I file his green card when he is here? What are the forms that I need to fill out, and what are the risks?
Yes you can absolutely apply while he is here. The general start of the process is that you file form I-130 to apply for his permanent stay (start of the green card process), as well as form I-485 to adjust his status. The 485 will allow your spouse to stay with you in the country while he awaits a decision and still maintain a legal status. There is no risk to his legality, as long as the forms and accompanying evidence are received by USCIS before the last day that his visa allows him to be in the country.Entry stamps are usually for no more than 6 months in the country and USCIS generally takes about 2 to 3 weeks to process and send out a receipt. Subtract those days from his date to leave, and use that as your minimum safe timeline. Keep in mind that some forms may come with restrictions in travel and he may be stuck in one place for a while e.g. I-485s may take months to process and can be voided simply by leaving the country without getting special permission in advance.Note also: Messing up the timeline can mean he may have to return to the country of origin to maintain legal status and await a decision. That may literally be a separation of numerous months to several years. In some cases, visitor’s visa may be revoked or entry denied once you put in an immigrant petition for him.After you start the process, you may also have to file a myriad of other forms, including an affidavit of support, co-sponsor form, an immigrant visa application, an application for removal of conditions, unlawful presence waiver and so on, all of which come with their own fees. USCIS will usually direct you to what forms are next, once you have completed each stage of the application.The range of forms you may have to file will change depending on the specifics of your case and the complexity will vary based on a number of factors. The simplest of these are the number of years you have been married, your spouses immigration status, but may include any number of things that you have not reported in your very general question.My advice would be to seek the help of an immigration lawyer to navigate the process. It is something you could do by yourself. The process is tedious and requires attention to detail, but is manageable. However, under the latest Trump directive, immigration officers are now simply denying applications for minor errors or insufficient information. In the past, they used to request additional documentation before denying outright, but are no longer required to do so. That would mean an error would require you to resubmit an entirely new application (once allowed), and pay all the hundreds to thousands in cash again. It may even interrupt your spouses legal status and add years to the process.No petitions are guaranteed to be approved, so it is best to be thorough and careful and avoid even the appearance of impropriety. Best of luck to you both!Disclaimer: I am not even close to being an immigration lawyer. I just work with a diverse population and have helped clients navigate this process scores of times.

Green Card Through Marriage: As sponsor what do I do if I have had no federal Income tax filed to IRS for last year, when filing my I-864?
This is exactly why you need an immigration lawyer.I cannot answer your question without much more information.Green card applications are not a walk in the park, they are complicated and sensitive legal documents that can affect your ability – or your spouse and children’s ability- to live and work in the U.S.In fact, in June 2015, the U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services estimated that it takes an average of 6.5  hours required to fill out the new Form I-485 for permanent residence.And you have to add supplements to the basic green card application form, which will add hours of your time to do it. If that’s a walk in the park, it’s more like a big game reserve in the wild.I meet many clients who try to fill out green card applications on their own before they realize how complicated the process can be, and reach out to get help from an immigration lawyer.Sometimes the delay of having to refile forms that were not correctly filled out in the first place can cost months of time away from a job, loved one, or family. While it is possible to download and file a green card application on your own, it can end up costing time, and causing errors that might ultimately affect your chances of getting permanent residency.But don’t take my word for it: even a do-it-yourself legal applications and forms website calls immigration law “notoriously, insanely complicated” and suggests that it is better to look for the best immigration attorney you can find, saying:“Even the simplest of U.S. immigration applications involves filling out some forms, and you will most likely be asked to follow some detailed instructions about gathering and including other paperwork and fees. Make a mistake, and you may find your application returned, delayed, or even rejected.Immigration lawyers have dealt with this paperwork countless times before you, and have both the knowledge and the streamlined systems to prepare the applications smoothly. They have computer programs in which they can enter your information and spit out the forms in an instant. Hiring a lawyer can be well worth it for the peace of mind alone.”Getting legal professional help from a top immigration attorney who can walk you through your green card application ensures that your form will be filled in properly the first time, without the worry. That’s not saying that complications still don’t arise, but with a top immigration law firm guiding the way, chances are you won’t be eaten by the wildlife while you are looking at the scenery.
If I have to fill out Form WH-4852, should I also send in my original W-2 and file it?
The purpose of Form 4852 is to substitute for the original W-2 if for some reason you didn't receive one and couldn't get one from an employer. If you have the original W-2, you don't file Form 4852.
How can I get a green card if I have an H1B visa and my daughter is a US citizen?
First, you have to be eligible. From what you said, if is correct, you qualify to apply for a U.S. Green Card as follows:“Green Card for Immediate Relatives of U.S. CitizenIf you are an immediate relative of a U.S. citizen, you can become a lawful permanent resident (get a Green Card) based on your family relationship if you meet certain eligibility requirements. You are an immediate relative if you are:The spouse of a U.S. citizen,The unmarried child under 21 years of age of a U.S. citizen, orThe parent of a U.S. citizen (if the U.S. citizen is 21 years of age or older).Green Card for Immediate Relatives of U.S. CitizenThe first step is ‘Adjustment of Status’ where you will be allowed to stay in the U.S. while your application is pending:Adjustment of StatusYou can follow the rest of the links to see what you need to file /pay and what happens with your application, basically you need to file Form I-485. The filing fee today is astronomical! The current fee is: $1,140.(Wow! it has increased a lots since I did this for my wife) Your receipt is your ‘temporary visa’ to stay in the U.S. while your application is pending.USCIS FeesSome people use a lawyer that specializes in immigration. Asians can find one in communities where a lots of Asians live. The cost is not cheap. However, you can do it yourself if you or your daughter are reasonably English conversant. Just be careful and honest in your application. You will need details of your birth, marriage(s), family deaths, dependents, relationships, financial support, and documents to back some of the information. Read the I-485 carefully a couple of times, make yourself a ‘draft’ copy so you can enter information and change if necessary. Don’t go overboard with details, just answer their questions adequately but accurately. When you are satisfied the information is complete and correct, transfer to a final copy.If you have a PC, you can go to the I-485 form link and fill out the form online. You can stop anytime and re-enter again and again. When you finish, make a copy, sign and send as required.Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust StatusIt is in PDF format and there are detailed instructions on how to fill out. If you have friends or relatives who have been through this procedure, talk to them and let them help you. They may know some problems that encountered when filing that might be useful to you so you can avoid these problems.Make sure you read and follow the instructions on the USIC website. You may be required to amend or change the information because it is incomplete or doesn’t comply with the instructions. This only delays your application. There will be questions regarding financial support while in the U.S.. This will probably depend on your daughter’s financial status. If so, she may be required to submit copies of her bank statements, ownership of home, assets, and her gurantee that you will not become a financial liability to the U.S. government.When your application is validated, you will be asked to come for an interview. My experience is that it is pretty simple. They ask a few questions about yourself, maybe you family, etc. I think primarily to see your command of the English Language. In my wife’s case, it was only about 10 minutes. I think the length depends on the USIC officer that talks to you and how busy they are. Hopefully the USIC office they ask you to come to is nearby. You can check their website for locations. If all is well and you are successful, you will wait, say 30 days or more, and you will receive your green card in the mail.Good luck!BTW, I am not an expert matter expert on green cards. I only draw from past experiences, I’ve done this twice. I used a lawyer in both cases, but I think it was a waste of money. Yes, there is a lots of information to fill out and support, but that is the case with or without a lawyer. If you feel uncomfortable in doing this by yourself and your daughter, by all means use an experienced lawyer. They will have a clerk fill out the information you provide, give you a draft with areas that require more information. This may happen several times until the lawyer feels it is complete He/she will file for you. You need to pay him for his services and any filing costs.Green Card
How do I go about getting my husband a spousal visa in the US? He is British and I am American. Also, where do I even go to start that process?
It’s a while since I went though this myself but the process doesn’t seem to have changed a lot in the intervening yearsAs you are US citizen you can file a petition to have your husband join you or accompany you if you are both outside the US.If you are in the USA and your husband is in the UK then you need to file from I–130 with CIS, you can download the form along with the instructions and some other forms here - Petition for Alien Relative. You need to fill out and mail the form to a Chicago address with the appropriate supporting documents and fees.If you are both in the UK you should file the forms and documents and fees with the CIS London field office (details are here: - United Kingdom - USCIS London Field Office).Either way the rest of the process is described here - Consular Processing. What happens now is a lot of waiting - the process from filing to issuing an immigrant visa seems to take somewhere between nine months and year.If you are both in the USA now - if he is visiting for example - then you need to file form I-485, which is an application for adjustment of status when you send in the I–130. There may still be quite a long wait before he is finally approved but he may be issued employment authorisation documents (EAD) while you are waiting, which will let him get a social security number and find work.From memory this process involved a trip to the local office about two months after filing for some preliminary processing and interview (which seemed simply to confirm that this was a genuine marriage and not one intended to get around immigration rules). After the interview I was issued the EAD and then about seven months later returned for a further slightly more detailed interview and the green card was issued after that trip. The interview doesn't need to be scary but is necessary - both officers that I dealt with were extremely professional and very pleasantNow my situation may not be fully representative, the fact of having lived with my wife in the UK for some years before coming to the US might have meant that the questioning about our marriage was less intrusive and intense than it might have been if we had only just got married, or if we had come from a community where there is perhaps a perceived history of sham marriages.
