Few points which I was looking help before submitting the application:
• Expired Visa: I am on L1 and my visa expired on Feb 2014 but have a valid I-94 till May 2016 so the PIO card is issued based on valid I-94.
• No Address Proof for Suppose: There was no address proof for my wife so I submitted only my driver’s license, copy of electricity bill (my name only) and a copy of lease agreement.
• FNU in the first name- My first name and last name in the VISA / I-94 are different than the names in my daughter’s passport.
o Visa / I94: FNU <First Name & Last name>
o Daughter’s passport: <First Name> <Last name>
