Employment Based AOS
Hello All,
Hope you can help , I am on Sylum pending since Dec 2016 ,but on the same time I was able to get spopsrship from my employer and he filed AOS for me on July 2019 .
Yet no update on both cases.
Anyone know if the Employment based AOS can be held by the Asylum case since the Asylum is mostly more complicated to be approved ?

Hope you can share your thoughts or similar experience.

Need Help - How to fill last name?

I am preparing to file AOS forms(I-485,I-130 etc.) for my marriage based GC.
I am having a problem filling the last name. On marriage certificate, my wife (US citizen) chose to change my last name (beneficiary). So far, she hasn't changed to my last name yet on IDs (driver license, passport, social etc) and she is planning to do it later of the year. So far, all of her documents are with her original last name.
So, my question is when filling the forms, should we just fill her original last name or use new last name (my last name) even though she hasn't updated her IDs yet?
Please advise.

Hello guy, good morning and I hope you guys are enjoying yourselves. I got an NOID and it’s been so terrible. On our interview day, the io did not ask for the evidence of our marriage. After the questionings, he handed a white paper to my wife and I and that was it. I want to reply to this NOID by myself with the help of my law student friend because I do not have an attorney fee, he charge me $1500 and 150$ for consultations and that’s quite exorbitant, I should have been able to raise the money but the time is Limited

They asked for few things apart from the evidence. On the interview, he Asked, what is the relationship of my co sponsor with me, I said she is my small aunty from my mother side and he asked my wife same question, she said she is my sister( aunt and wifey only met once when we were dating) meanwhile, my sister and my aunty has the same name but different surname and I will provide evidence for that. My wife call my sister by the name so she assume that she is the one they are asking her

They said my previous marriage divorce letters sham isn’t original , it is original and that’s what you are given when you dissolve your marriage and it carries the stamp of the courts on it

He asked when did you filed for the Devore, thought he was referring to myself and my ex wife as YOU, and I replied and in his letter is said, He asked the question and I said I filled for the paper meanwhile it was my wife who filled for the divorce… English is hard, lol.

My questions

I’m going to submit original documents with the NOID

I am replying by myself with the help of my friends.. any contributions will help

Thanks in advance guys, enjoy yourself
