Maybe their case worker was a trainee or something. There was somebody that posted that they got an RFE for taxes before the April 15th deadline here before, but that was for the K-1 and once they clarified it was for a copy of the W-2, not the ITR. They were also close to the income threshold so it makes sense.

The adjucator's guide says that if the initial I-864 is sufficient at the time of submission there is no reason to RFE for anything further (in that regard), so either the adjucator kind of screwed up or there was something else involved.

No, they already have a copy of that. You just need the I-693, with the vaccination part filled out by a designated civil surgeon.


Hi Mark,
i have a question about the td shot. I already asked this shot to my primary doctor but she told me that i should not have td shot coz i am pregnant. i am 5 month- pregnant. So i told my doctor that i need a note from her and i will send it to the uscis including my other documents. What can you help us about this problem? thanks in advance...menchie

You are doing exactly what you should do, get that note from the doctor and send a copy of it in along with the rest of the I-693. The civil surgeon should also put something along the lines of 'contraindicated because of pregnancy' on the I-693.

You did not receive a TDaP at St. Lukes? When was your medical there?

Ah, that's why. I don't think they raised the fee and started giving the TDaP until a few months after that, I think July or August.

Hi, The time i mailed my AOS, i only submitted the vaccination record provided by the doctor. Which means i did not filled out I-693. The immigration just scheduled my GC interview that will be on March 3. They said from the notice that to bring the vaccination supplement in a sealed envelope (unless already submitted).

My question now is do i need to go back to the doctor and have him fill out the I-693?

I attached a copy of the vaccination record (not I-693) to the AOS. I mailed/submitted my AOS last Sept 2008. Now I am scheduled for GC interview this March 3.

06/05/08. Previous editions will be accepted only for medical exams conducted before August 1, 2008. Medical exams conducted on or after August 1, 2008, require use of the 06/05/08 edition (link at bottom of page).


You should have submitted the new version. I would recommend that you take a copy of the vaccination supplement that you have and your vaccination record (from St. Lukes) to a Civil Surgeon and have them fill it out and sign it (but don't get a new medical exam). It is possible that the version you submitted will be okay, but to be safe I would recommend that you do the above, since you got an RFE for it already. The alternative would be to risk a denial just on that basis, which I wouldn't want to risk.

Been reviewing cover letters and Ive noticed that in each type of application there is 2 copies of passport style photos, marriage certificate, copy of passport etc.

Example:

I-485 Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status
▪ Check: Payment in the amount of $1010 (Biometrics fee included)
▪ Copy of Form I-797C Notice of Action (Approval Notice)
▪ Copy of international Birth certificate
▪ Copy of passport (Biographical Page) with nonimmigrant K1visa
▪ Copy of form I-94 (front and back)
▪ Copy of Marriage Certificate
▪ Medical form I-693A(in sealed envelope)
▪ Form G-325A, Biographic Information Sheet
▪ Two (2) passport size pictures

I-864 Affidavit of Support
▪ Federal income tax return, including W-2 for 2007
▪ Letter of employement
▪ Copy of most recent pay stubs
▪ Copy of passport page (US Citizen husband)
▪ Copy of recent Bank Statement

I-131 Application for Travel Document
▪ Copy of Marriage Certificate
▪ Copy of Form I-797C Notice of Action (Approval Notice)
▪ Explanation for Eligibility on a separate sheet
▪ Copy of passport (Biographical Page), with nonimmigrant K1 visa
▪ Copy of form I-94 (front and back)
▪ Two (2) passport size pictures

I-765 Application for Employment Document
▪ Copy of passport (Biographical Page), with nonimmigrant K1 visa
▪ Copy of form I-94 (front and back)
▪ Copy of Marriage Certificate
▪ Two (2) passport size pictures


So do we have to submit 6 copies of passport style photos for the submission of AOS packet? and so with the birth cert, marriage etc.

And is it okay if the bank statement is last years? same statement used for I-129F?

Just want to make sure. Thanks!




violet thanks for posting this , it helps.

If he makes above the 125% poverty level you don't need bank statements, just the same things as for the I-134.

There is no deadline, but it is best to do so as soon as possible after getting married (for a K-1, just as soon as possible for a K-3). It is a matter of practical considerations. The medical expires after 1 year; once the I-94 expires a K-1 is considered an 'overstay', but there is no penalty for that once the adjustment of status is filed. However, between the time the I-94 expires and when the AOS is filed a K-1 can be detained and put into deportation proceedings, although it is rare and seems to be confined mostly to the border states, especially Texas.

(K-1 ) if the I-94 expires and the submission or filling for AOS is done only after a year or more..... what consequences with arise in this kind of situation? will there be a penalty for such a late filling and will it cause for the non immigrant to be detain or be deported? and how about on the part of the petitioner what consequences will he face ?

Generally no consequences; there have been a few stories of people being detained when the travelled through border control checkpoints in some of the border states (notably Texas) but generally speaking they aren't going to detain or deport you if you stay away from those states. However, the Adjustment of Status really should be done as soon as possible. Late filing in and of itself will not cause any problems and once you have filed (no matter if late or not) having the receipt to show as evidence of filing reportedly makes it so that even those border control checkpoints aren't a problem.
