Question Changes to watch out in 485 filing after july 30th till August 17th

I filed my 485 on 2nd July and I am in process of filing 485 for my wife soon. I wana document and ask if there anything different from my 485 filing. Also can someone provide a list of supporting documents that I need attach to her application. I do have a rough list of mine but i wana make sure i dont miss anything.

Thus can someone share the list of docs required for Spouse 485 application

Changes that I need to watch out ?

Form revisions I need to use for 485/ead/AP, I think fee will be same ie for
485 –> $325+$70, EAD --> $180 , AP --> $170 ( as released in update1)

I mailed my application to Nebraska, I am based in Florida … thus according to new rule should I send my wife’s application to Taxes?

Should I include my supporting documents like I20, SSN, EAD ( of OPT) etc in her application.

should i put some bright color note on application saying that i filed my application as Single on July 2nd and now filing my wifes application as i got married on July 29th ?

Do i need to put my original employement letter with her application too or the copy will do ?

I am not using a lawyer thus any help is appreciated.

Thanks
-M

You need to realize that 485 is a separate application when you file for yourself or your wife. So all the documents mentioned in 485 imply to your wife application too. Few changes need to be taken care
1.If 140 is pending or approved in texas your wife application should go to texas
2. If 140 pending attached the labor approved copy.
3. Employment copy instead of original.

Hope this helps

The tax returns, W2s, paystubs etc should be yours, not hers, since she is filing as a dependent. I'm not sure if you need to attach your I-20. I'm not sure if you need to file an I-134 but my attorney recommended me to file an I-864 although I-485 instructions are not clear on whether its inclusion is necessary or not. But I would say why not file it just to be safe.

Yes u are right about I-864. Any employement based green card like ours ( EB2/EB3) should not file it. Here is the text from the I864 form -->

Employment-based preference immigrants in cases onlywhen a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident relativefiled the immigrant visa petition or such relative has asignificant ownership interest (five percent or more) in theentity that filed the petition.


Thanks a ton for your help guys. :-)

Yes, its good to file I-134 especially when she is on H4. Paystubs and tax returns are not required documents though a lot of people tend to submit them. Just an employment letter from your employer would suffice. You dont need to include your I-20 with your wife's application....However, do include her medicals, though its not part of the initial evidence......
