Question Alien Registration Number (A#) in 485 forms

what is the Alien Registration Number (A#) for a person on H4, while submitting 485 forms?.

Should we use the Alien Registration Number (A#) of the Sponcering applicant as the Alien Registration Number of the spouse in all the 485 related forms(g325a, I485 etc) ?

Dependents do not have an A#. Only the principal applicant. You leave this box blank for the H4 holders application.

If an A# has been assigned it will be in the beneficiary box of the I140 approval notice. Not everyone has been given one it would appear. If you have not leave that box on the forms blank.

True, some have had this A# assigned on their I-140 approvals and some don't. Anyone knows what's the significance of this?

It should appear on your I140 approval under the Beneficiary. Under your name, the A# should appear there.

Even my lawyer could not remember where my A# came from and I pointed it out to her.

Some people say, they didn't get it. I'm not really sure.

Please check your I140 approval.

Why are you trusting your lawyer if they cannot even remember where the A# came from? Makes me wonder how they justify their existence if this the level of their competence. If I was that bad at my job I would have been on a plane out of the US within a week or arriving.

Default A# from OPT

My lawyer asked me to write my A# from my OPT card that I used in 1999-2000. According to him A# is assigend once for an individual and if you were assigned before you can continue to use that in future. Though I never used that in the past 7-8 years.

My wife got an OPT card last month and we used A# from that card for her dependent I-485 application

Default H4 A#s - no

If H4 person was always on H4, they never had an A#.

If H4 person ever got an OPT before and are now on H4 they can use that A# in the I-485 application. (The same applies to H1 person as well) I guess it should not be a problem if you forget to mention if you were ever assigned one in the past, but it won't hurt if you can mention if you can remember it. Everyone on H1 at this time do not have a current A# but may have been assigned one in the past (e.g. OPT).

She's a good lawyer and I trust her and she has made a lot of successful H's, I140, Labor and GC cases. Very honest as well. So far in my case, we never had any problems and everything went smooth particularly when we were filing my PERM (which was very new during that time), she was really very cautious about it.

Regarding the A# which I pointed out to her, I actually confused her with my question. With the number of cases she's preparing right now, I think she just forgot where you could find the A#.

Is this information true?

My 140 is pending and I don't have the A#. Can I use that from my OPT card?
