Which editions of each form are currently being accepted is listed on the webpage for that form on the USCIS website.

Has anyone used boundless on their Green Card process?
Hello!It comes down to 2 major factors:First, Price:Boundless charges $750 dollars for their service. Their service includes Forms I-130, I-130A, I-485, I-765, I-131, and I-864. They will also support their customers until they get the green card.However, I have also talked to many people that have chosen SimpleCitizen over Boundless because of the price tag. SimpleCitizen is a one-time fee of $348 dollars for the entire Green Card Application (Forms I-130, I-130A, I-485, I-765, I-131, and I-864). The one time fee even includes unlimited support until the day you get your Green Card (i.e. request for evidence/RFE prep, attorney consultations, employment authorization document/EAD renewal, case status tracker/text and email updates, etc.)Second, Track Record:Boundless has only been around since 2022. According to their founder and CEO, Xiao Wang, they just had their first customer get a green card. They currently only offer two types of applications: Marriage-based Green Card and Citizenship.SimpleCitizen started in 2022. Since then they have done thousands of immigration applications for people from 150+ countries. Most of those customers already have their green cards and/or citizenship. SimpleCitizen has a proven track record of successfully helping people through the whole immigration cycle; starting with the first green card, removing the conditions from the 2-year green card and then applying for citizenship.In addition, SimpleCitizen also offers over 20 different application types. Those include the marriage-based green card, green card renewal, removal of conditions, citizenship, Petition by Child, Petition by Parent, K-1 Nonimmigrant Visa for a Fianc(Ă©)e, employment-based green card, O-1 extraordinary ability visa, H-1B visa for specialty workers, E-2 Investor Visa, TN NAFTA Professionals, etc.
What are the financial requirements for a green card sponsor (form I-864) in 2018?
What are the requirements of being a sponsor?In order to meet the requirements as a sponsor, the sponsor must be at least 18 years old and meet certain income requirements:Financial Requirements:To qualify as a sponsor, you must show that your annual income is at least 125% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. These guidelines are updated annually and are calculated according to household size.Search the USCIS website to see if you qualify. The 2022 guidelines will remain in affect until the 2022 ones are published.
Why does American government stimulate the adoption of foreign children with disabilities?
By "government stimulation" I assume you are referring to the IRS tax credit (approximately $13,000) that ALL adoptive families can claim against their federal income tax for adoption-related expenses.  See (IRS Topic 607 Adoption Credit and Adoption Assistance Programs) . This credit applies to all adoptions - foreign and domestic, special-needs or not.  I believe most Americans would regard the specific exclusion of internationally-born special needs children (as opposed to excluding ALL internationally adopted kids) from this broad tax credit as highly discriminatory against the disabled.  I suspect such an exclusion would be vigorously challenged in court. As a country, our laws regard all people -- including the disabled -- to be created equal. And while our American's attitudes toward the disabled are far from perfect, compared to other countries I believe we are culturally more accepting and have made it a bit easier for the disabled to thrive.Note, however, that there are other adoption subsidy programs specifically for special needs kids currently in US foster care, under the Federal Title IV-E Adoption Assistance Program (AAP): (see NACAC | Adoption Subsidy ).   While internationally adopted kids are not specifically excluded from this program, in reality they are excluded because it requires that the child be in US foster care  (kids adopted from abroad are placed directly into family homes and not into US foster care).  Again, note that international adoptions are not specifically excluded here; it's just that the goal of these programs is to get these children out of foster care and government assistance.Another tidbit: when you adopt a child internationally, the adoptive parents need to file a form I-864 with US-CIS to prove they have the means to financially support the child ( http://www.uscis.gov/i-864 ) and that the child is not likely to end up on government assistance.  This is the same form used by anyone who is trying to bring over a family member to the US from abroad, adopted or not.UPDATE:  Since the question was updated, here's my updated answer:I do not know of any US government program that provides financial incentives for international adoption of a special-needs child over international adoption of a healthy child.There are, however, a few private charities (not affiliated with the US government), such as Brittany's Hope Foundation, that prfinancial assistance for families wanting to adopt special needs children from abroad.  The amount of assistance is usually quite small compared to the cost of adopting (which is usually in the $20K - $50K range for international adoptions).

How was your US visa interview experience?
“Sir, this is my flight ticket; the plane takes off in 5 hours. So if we do not get this visa right now, we might as well not get it at all.”June 14th, 2013,Mumbai, India.A few months before this date, my parents went to the US consulate in Mumbai for their visa interview. They carried every document they ever owned because they didn’t want anything going wrong. They had never travelled internationally and their first ever trip was planned to see their son graduate. At the interview the officer asked them some standard questions, nothing out of the ordinary; but then, he told my dad that his visa had been approved for 10 years and turned to my mom and handed her the dreaded 221g. He said that they would need to get some more documents as evidence. It was quite puzzling at the time but my parents accepted the verdict and went back home to send the documents.The next 4 months were extremely harrowing. The consulate told them that since my mother had been a Chemistry professor, they needed more details like a copy of her 30+ year old hand typed PhD thesis for starts (that had something to do with extraction of starch molecules). The Boston Bombings had put Chemistry on the technology alert list(TAL) and this started a multi-year saga for my mom.The days became weeks, my parents drove to Mumbai multiple times to plead their case, but their pleas fell on deaf ears. Dad also got his diplomat friend to send the consulate a letter requesting they help with this case; but bureaucracy is after all bureaucracy.Finally, Friday, June 14th, the day of their flight and 36 hours before their only son graduated. Mom and dad packed their bags, loaded the car and drove to Mumbai, braving the heavy stormy rains and the floods; still no passport or visa in hand for mom who by then had pretty much given up all hope and resigned to her fate. They went to the consulate one last time where dad pleaded to meet a high ranking official for just a few minutes and explain what’s going on. Luckily, one of them obliged and invited dad into his office.He told dad that the process takes time and the system shows him that it has been cleared but the stamping might take a couple of days and that they will probably hear back on Monday. Dad pulled out a printed sheet and told him,“Sir, this is my flight ticket; the plane takes off in 5 hours. So if we do not get this visa right now, we might as well not get it at all. You see that woman sitting outside in tears, that is my wife. Her only dream her whole life has been to watch her son grow into a man. Watching him graduate will be the happiest and proudest moment of her life and I don’t have it in my heart to tell her that she can’t do that. Please help us out.”The officer heard him out, then rang in someone on his office staff and talked to him and asked my dad to wait outside for a little bit. Mumbai was flooding and mom and dad waited outside for an hour. It was 4:30pm and the consulate would close in 30 minutes. They were almost sure that nobody was coming and that the officer had just asked them to wait outside to get rid of them. At this time, my wife and I were boarding our flight from Seattle to California to attend the ceremony; we called up mom and heard what was going on as the plane began to taxi.Ten minutes later, just as my flight took off, there was an announcement for Mrs. Kamath to please come into the office. There he stood, the big bald shining white angel with a huge grin on his face and a passport in his hand. Mom broke down while dad shook the man’s hand profusely. He gave them a hug and told them “I wouldn’t have been able to sleep tonight knowing a mother had been robbed of this moment; I’m sorry things took so long but I hope you make your flight and get to watch your son walk.”They made it; six hours before I graduated, they made it.Over the next few years, mom had to re-apply for a visa every year since Chemistry remained on the TAL and she never got a visa for longer than 6–12 months. This finally changed in 2022 when they gave her a 10 year visa at last.I do not know who that officer was or if there’s even the slightest chance he might read this some day; but if he does I want him to know that his bias for action on that day brought a mother the happiest moment of her life. Thank you kind sir, whoever you are.In case we haven’t met before, I’m Rohan Kamath.Thank you for reading. I hope I could help you smile today. :)
Should my visa status be updated when I apply for the green card through the marriage?
There’s a bunch of issues here that need attention.First, you don’t have to renew your visa to stay in the US. All a visa is is an document that says that a US conofficial has reviewed your circumstances and that in the opinion of that official, you appear eligible to enter the United States, and thus purveyors of transportation who agree to convey you to the United States will not be held responsible for your return should you be determined to be ineligible to enter by the border official. The visa gives you no right to enter the United States itself, and has absolutely nothing to do with how long you are allowed to stay in the United States. That is governed, for most nonimmigrant aliens, by the I-94 Record of Entry document that is created when you actually enter the United States. That document will have on it a departure date, and that date is the last date on which you may leave the United States without being in violation of your status as a nonimmigrant alien.You state that you are in F-1 (student) status. Virtually all F-1 admittees are admitted with a last-departure date of “D/S”, which means “duration of status”. This special code means that you are allowed to remain in the United States indefinitely, without filing any extensions or renewals, as long as you remain “in status.” For a student, this means continuing to be making “normal progress” toward the degree, diploma, or certificate for which you were admitted to the United States to study. The institution at which you are studying is required to regularly report to CBP whether or not each of the students admitted to study at that institution are still making “normal progress”. You may remain in the United States as long as your institution continues to consider you to be making normal progress toward your degree, and as long as this continues to be the case, you do not have to file any renewals or extensions with CBP, whether or not the visa in your passport has expired.If you are still in progress of your studies and will continue to be making normal progress on your studies at the time of your marriage, you do not need to do anything. other than continue to attend school. Once you have married, assuming you’re marrying a US citizen, you will then file a I-485 Adjustment of Status (AOS), declaring that you are entitled to register as a lawful permanent resident by virtue of being the immediate relative of a US citizen. (Your spouse will have to file, or have already filed, an I-130 petition to allow you to immigrate as an immediate relative, along with Form I-864 demonstrating that your spouse has sufficient resources to prfor both of you.) Once this filing has been accepted (note: accepted is not the same as approved; accepted just means that USCIS has received the documents), your F-1 visa will be invalid. You can continue your studies (your admission status is not immediately affected by filing an AOS), but you cannot travel outside the United States and reenter the US on your F-1 visa, because filing an AOS demonstrates present immigrant intent and thus renders a nonimmigrant visa (other than one with dual intent) invalid. If you plan to travel outside the US between when you get married and when USCIS eventually grants your AOS, you will need to file for advance parole at the same time you file your AOS; the advance parole documents you receive will permit you to reenter the US while your adjustment of status is pending (and also allow your AOS to remain valid even though you’ve left the US; in most situations leaving the US while an AOS is pending is considered an abandonment of the AOS). You may also want to apply for employment authorization (EAD) at the same time, since this will allow you to start work much sooner than if you wait the months or even years for the actual green card to arrive. Some months after you file this application, you will be called for an interview, a medical exam (probably) and for fingerprinting (possibly, they might use the ones you have on file for your F-1 visa instead), and then some months after that you’ll (hopefully) receive a notification that your application has been granted, at which time you’ll become a lawful permanent resident. Your (conditional) green card will arrive in the mail some time (six to twelve weeks appears typical from what I’ve heard) after that. The notification letter will serve as your temporary green card.Note that, despite what others have said, you do not receive a temporary green card at the time you get married; marriage by itself affords you no status. You must file an adjustment of status if you want to get a green card, and you must file for advance parole if you wish to travel outside the US while your application is pending. Failure to do these things will impair your rights.Essentially the same process applies if you are in post-graduation OPT, but there are additional complications with respect to OPT extensions if you “demonstrate immigrant intent” that make this transition more complicated.If the person you are marrying is a US lawful permanent resident, or if your studies will have ended before you plan to marry, then you have a more complicated situation, and you should really consult with an attorney for specific advice.I would strongly advise you to consult with an attorney, or at least speak with someone who has specific experience assisting people with immigration-related filings, before you make specific plans. You should definitely inform the international studies office of the institution when you file for AOS, and you may want to ask them for advice more generally as this is (unsurprisingly) something that happens quite often to international students and thus they generally have a fairly good idea of how to help people with the process. Whatever you do, don’t leave the US while you have the intention of becoming a lawful permanent resident; if you do and haven’t made the proper filings, you may not be permitted to reenter.
I’m a US Citizen living with my foreign spouse in his country. We wish to move to the US. What steps do I need to take?
I recently petitioned my spouse and we were married here in the U.S. My petition was under the K-1 Fiance Visa petition. A sister in law and brother in law were married in her home country and he petitioned her, and her children under the K-3 Spousal Visa. Since you are already married, the K-3 petition will be what you will use for your spouse and any children under 18 he has from any previous marriage. Forms, fees, and required evidence are available at Bringing Spouses to Live in the United States as Permanent Residents . The process takes between 9 months to a year. Once approved. USCIS will send the approval to the USCIS foreign office closest to where you live, which will be inside a US Embassy. You will receive a letter from said embassy stating that your spouse will need to appear and pra web site to make the appointment. Prior to that appointment, your spouse, and any of his children over age 14, will need to pra Police clearance certificate, from the federal police in the country you reside in that shows a background check that is “clean.” It will become rapidly more complex if your spouse. or children, have any convictions on this police record. Finally your spouse and all children will need to submit to a full health physical exam at a clinic or hospital contracted with the US embassy. They will be looking for any contagious diseases that may be occurring in the country you reside in. When you go to the interview the conofficer will be looking to see if your marriage is genuine, especially if the marriage is less than 2 years. You can show proof of this by photos of being a couple or family, commingling bank accounts, insurance policies, and real property by having both your names on said accounts, policies, and deeds. If he was married previously he will need to bring proof that his divorce, or annulment, is final. If you were married previously you may also have to show that proof. Not only will you bring it to the interview but you will submit it with your initial petition with form I-130 and additional forms, such as I-134 Affidavit of Support, and G-325A Biographic Information.Once your spouse’s visa is approved and he and his children are allowed to travel to the U.S, upon arrival in the U.S. you will have 90 days to file a form I-485 Adjustment of Status. This is the form that will convert your husband’s visa to a green card. You will need to submit separate I-485’s for your spouse and each child he brings with him, each with a separate fee. You will also want to file form I-765 Employment Authorization Document so that when approved, your spouse may look for work. The E.A.D. will arrive before the green card. Upon receipt of the E.A.D. then your spouse may apply for a U.S. Social Security card. If your marriage is less than two years, the green card will be “conditional” and valid for only two years. 90 days prior to it’s expiration you will need to file form I-751 again attaching all the proof that you submitted with the previous forms plus any additional proof showing the marriage is genuine. Your spouse and children will also need to submit to a full physical examination once in the U.S. The M.D. will write their findings on form I-693 Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record. This you will also need to submit with the I-485 and also form I-864 Affidavit of Support Under Section 213A of the INA. Its more detailed and probing than the I-134 you filed initially for his K-3 VisaThere are many groups on social media that will pradditional advise, updates to immigration law changes, and experiences other people are enduring on their “journey for a visa.”The final feeling on this is that by time my spouse and I filed the I-751 I swore she would be the first, last, and only spouse I would ever petition.I wish you the most heartfelt luck and support.
