  • Entered the US with J1, then apply for F1 later. Now apply for I-485 (marriage based)

    Hello everyone,

    So on 2012, I entered the US with a J1 visa through the student exchange program. After the program ended, I went home and applied for an F1. I'm married about 6 months ago, and currently preparing to file for AOS. So, which I-94 should I send them, or should I send both?

        Is your spouse a US citizen?

        Also, does your J1 have a 2-year home residency requirement, and if so, have you satisfied it?

        This is my personal opinion and is not to be construed as legal advice.
