      You can do it yourself. Good luck. If you screw up, you don't have an attorney to blame.

        You can do all the paperwork yourself.
        If you are doing a marriage based AOS and you entered with inspection
        you need forms:
        I-130 petition for alien relative
        I-485 application to adjust status
        I-765 EAD application for employment authorization document
        I-131 Advance Parole if your spouse intends to travel while the AOS (adjustment of status) is pending and has not overstayed his/her current visa by more than 180 days
        I-864 affidavit of support
        G-325a biographic information (quadrupic form for each of you)
        you also need some passport type pics of you and your spouse

        Go to the uscis.gov website for the forms

        http://uscis.gov/graphics/formsfee/forms/index.htm

        and for specifications on pictures:

        http://uscis.gov/graphics/publicaffa...hoto_flyer.pdf


        read the instructions to the forms carefully and go over the forms about 2 to 3 times until they start making sense (it can be quite overwhelming at first, but its really not that bad)

        all of the forms should be sent TOGETHER in one package to the Chicago Lockbox address.

        If you still have any questions as to filling out the forms come back and post these questions specifically, or post them at another good board, such as www.immigrate2us.net

        good luck to you :-)

                This is the address:

                U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
                P.O. Box 805887
                Chicago, IL 60680-4120

                Or, for non-United States Postal Service (USPS) deliveries (e.g. private couriers)

                U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
                Attn: FBASI
                427 S. LaSalle – 3rd Floor
                Chicago, IL 60605-1098

                You can also find it when you download the forms at:

                http://uscis.gov/graphics/formsfee/forms/index.htm

                Yes, you can and even SHOULD send in all forms together (if you don't you always have to include the NOA (notice of action) you receive when submitting the first document(s)with the newly submitted form(s) so the CIS can link them together)

                  please help me
