View Full Version : 485 without Employment verification letter

My Lawyer filed 485 without Employmnet verification letter. My employer is willing to provide the letter but the lawyer said it's not required as I am with the same employer (current employer - one who filed my GC process) for 6 years. I submitted recent W2's and Pay stubs. Please advise, is it mandatory to submit Employment Verification letter???
What is the impact of not submitting letter.

Nothing. You can submit either W2 + paystub OR employment letter. Not necessary to have both.

I was referring the below 485 filing instructions from the USCIS website
(Section 11 -B) – which says, It’s mandatory to submit the Employment
letter stating that the job is still available and the salary.

Employment verification letter (EVL) is absolute necessity for I-485 application. Even if you submit your EVL, it may be asked again during the approval if your approval is pending for long time (this happened to me).

I did some research and I stand corrected. xyz0011 is right. Since your employer is willing to provide, you could always add to your application with a note saying that it was inadvertently left out and you should be fine. Worst thing that can happen is you get an RFE, that in itself is not a cause of concern as long as it is handled in a timely fashion.
