Cover Letter For I-485

I know a lot of women out there specially my "kababayan" are searching for a sample Cover Letter for I-485 Application for Adjustment of Status. Now, this will vary according to your visa application. And since I entered as K1 or Fiancee Visa, this is how I make my Cover Letter. I hope it will help you. You can add more proofs with it if you want to. As long as it is relevant to your application. If you have some questions regarding "HOW TO" in filing fiancee visa, I am not an expert but, I can help you with that.

  1. hello Amy, ilang years ka na dito sa US? goodluck sa iyong application and green card

  2. I wok in an immigration law firm. fyi. Sometimes a bond hearing for marriage couples are required for the I-485.

  3. Jess Sophia- i never heard about bond hearing as a requirement for I-485 application in K1. So far, the community website which I am a member of never encountered such requirement. I will research on that and find the reason why somebody would need a bond hearing. Thank you for the information though. Come by next time okay.

  4. Hi Amiable Amy...ur post about I-485 is such a big help. I just have some questions coz im a little bit confused on what documents to file with it like is it necessary to send an original copy of w2s and paystubs?how about the I-130 receipt, is it ok to send a photocopy.

    Thanks for the help

  5. Hi Amy your post helped me organized my papers for filing. I came here as a K1 visa and I have an I-94 form. Can you help me locate the A# which I am required to fill up in my I- 485 application from? Your help will be much appreciated.


  6. majca_14,
    you can send a CLEAR photocopy of W2's and paystubs...or receipts...but,if they asked for original,they will emphasized it anyway... so, photocopy (b&w/colored) is alright....goodluck!

  7. GLENDA,
    If you are referring to A# in Part 1-Information about you in Form l-485, check your last NOA form l-797 usually it is the # above your name...Goodluck :-)

  8. whose name is the cover letter of the petitioner or beneficiary? who must sign the cover letter?

  9. Ruby,
    The name of the cover letter is the applicant who wants to adjust the status, same thing with the signature. Goodluck... Did you check the guidelines/instructions yet?
