W-2 is from the employer, that you got paid. Tax return is form 1040 you filed with IRS

Copy of W2 and recent two pay-stubs is sufficient to file AOS.

My previous work experience is outside the US.
Do they also ask for tax returns from one's earnings outside the US?

Default Neither Tax Return or W2 is required for AOS

I mean i filed without both of those. Theyare required in the 140 phase , not in 485.

But keep them handy - in case they wants mail by next day air

W-2 is the form you would have received from your employer. Against which you field your tax returns. relax and send both. W2- says what you've earned. Tax returns explains what IRS has earned on you. Everyone's happy.

there are cases where people earned W2 but did not pay tax differences ie did not file returns.

Well, some of this maybe extra information. Basically the attorney is trying to play safe.

Question strange!!!


My lawyer siad it is not necessary to have either W2 or Tax return documents for I485. I read the filing instruction about 4-5 times and did not find this requirement.

I did not send mine. Hope it's not a problem.

if you are filing for your spouse and if you are sponsoring your spouse, you have to show evidence of income.. There is a form that you fill with it,.

My attorney did not ask for Tax Returns for AOS. Our company uses Berry, Appleman & Leiden LLP - www.usabal.com


Thanks

Default Spouse form

Hi Seahawks,

I had a question regarding your post - you mentioned that if you are filing with your spouse, there's another form you have to file. I filed along with my spouse and I did not have to fill out any special form; my attorney did not ask for any special form for my spouse and neither did he ask for my tax information.

Can you please provide details of this form you are talking about? My application has already reached USCIS in the begining of July.


Am I expecting an RFE on it? Thanks.

Post Affidavit of support

If you are sponsoring your spouse, you need to submit an affidavit of support. It is I-134. This forms needs for you to submit bank statements, tax returns etc. with it.

Default I 134

Hi Dazed, thanks for your response. I checked the filing instructions on 485 form and it does not mention I 134 form any where. I did not file this form since my lawyer never asked me to do so.

Do you or anyone in this forum know, what happens to the application in that case, RFE, etc?

Thanks again.
