Do i do all those forms at the same time?
Does the $1070 cover I-131 ,I-485 , and I-765 all in one
Yes, everything is filed at one time and the $1070 covers the I-485/765/131 if you file them all at the same time.
As for the I-94, you don't have one, nor do you have a visa number so you would put "N/A" and after you print the forms you would hand write in "visa exempt" anywhere on the forms that info is asked.
Thanks sooo much I have one more , on the I-131 where I put my address (2 b) , do I put my address in Canada or my wifes address in NC where I am staying with her (and will continue living with her)
Judith ,will I be able to sign back in at a later date to view these answers you gave me?
You will put your US address where your wife lives.
Yes, you can come back a year from now and view this thread. Just add the link to your favorites or bookmark it.
Judith can I travel to the carribeans 2 or 3 time per year on one I-131 form and what about next year
The advance parole document is good for multiple entries.
You will have an interview in approx. 6 months on your permanent resident status.
Judith on I-485 Part 2. (application type) do I check off a. ?
Judith which one of the forms will not be accepted if I refuse to get vaccines like flu shots etc. when I was a child my mother did not want me to have all those shots because I had asthma, anyway around this?
This is a new question issue regarding a waiver of the required vaccinations.
You would need to start a new question thread.
If you want to have me answer it you need to start the thread with "FOR JUDITH".
It is a very complex and difficult issue and you would need to value it accordingly.
Judith i'm not sure what happened , I tried to start a new session with you,there bwas a picture of a different male lawyer, paypal took $38 and nothing was answered?
