Hi, I am currently...

Hi, I am currently working on AOS from a K-1 visa. We have sent in the forms but have received a Request for Initial Evidence based on not meeting the poverty guidelines. We have a co-sponsor and are well over the guidelines and I assume I made a mistake somewhere with the documentation. We would like someone with experience in this field to help us look over our documents before we submit them to make sure that we do not have any more problems with our application. Thank you, ***** *****

Lawyer's Assistant: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?

Yes, our I-485 is pending

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

Not yet. We have just received the Request for Initial Evidence letter.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I think that should be enough information for now, thank you.

I'm sorry I forgot to add, I did include copies of both of our passports in the original package. My problem is understanding why I received the RFE in the first place, I can't figure what additional documentation they need, other than perhaps the full tax returns not just the cover sheet for the 1040.Thank you very much for your help today!
Amanda Kyne

You are welcome. In my experience sometimes people just do not read through the entire file. Or, sometimes the documents get separated from the application.

Please go ahead and rate me. I get no credit for my work for you until you rate me.
