    How did you lose your I-94? Did you lose your passport as well?

    Did you file a police report when you lost your stuff? Do you have anything else on you -- eg., a driver's license from your country of origin, etc., that would help in your identification?

    Have you read the instructions for the form I-102 -- it states, if you are unable to provide a copy of your biographic page from your passport, and a copy of the page indicating your admission, you have to submit a full explanation stating why you cannot give any of the required evidence. Also, since you are claiming that your card was lost or stolen, you have to submit a copy of the police report relating to the theft.

    Thanks for replying.
    Unfortunately my I-94 was attached to my passport and i lost that too...i do have a police report, but what my lawyer said is the more evidence i have the better, because just the police report itself doesn't prove that i entered legally.
    So i was thinking maybe you guys can give me some other ideas, what else i should look for. Because once i send the form in, i have to wait for a few months for a response and if it is negative than i'm really screwed i can't do anything else, ...i really want to gather whatever i can ....it really ****s. thanks again.

    As Mark75 said, do you recall when you came to the US? Do you know your port of entry? What visa classification do you have -- tourist B1/B2, student F-1, etc? Do you remember when your I-94 expires?

    I feel that the instructions for a lost/stolen I-94 is easy to understand -- you just need to explain why you cannot submit biographic info from your passport -- obviously it was stolen.

    Since you have the police report -- you can submit a copy of that too.

    Do you still have your plane stubs, if you flew into the US? Maybe that could serve as evidence.

    Csunkala, what other evidence did your lawyer suggest that you collect?

    Thanks again for the quick reply. Let's see, I can provide the date but i forgot which airport i came to and i also remember what visa type i had.
    I got my visa for a year which expired a while ago....My lawyer told me to gather as much info as i can and it will be up to them if they accept it or not.
    the reason i want it really bad is because if they decide not to approve then i won't be able to get married either, becuse once i get married and then file all the papers the first question they will ask me is going to be about my entry...and if i tell them that i got a disapproved letter regarding my i-94 they will automatically deport me thinking that i came here illegaly.
    i do have to have the best evidence i can get to prove them i came here legally. but unfortunately i can't think of any that would guarantee me 100% success...:-( thanks

    No one has really answered his primary question. File form I-102 to replace a lost, stolen, or replacement of an I-94 card. If you are unable to submit a copy of your biographical info or your passport, you must submit an explanation stating why you cannot give any evidence. If your card was stolen, submit a copy of the police report. YOu will also need to contact your embassy or consulate to replace your new passport because you will need that when you depart back to your home country.

    If you read the previous posts, you will see that her question has been addressed. However, I think her problem is deeper than a lost or stolen I-94 and passport -- if you look at her most recent post, she is implying that she is now here illegally as her visa has expired a while back.

    Thank you Everyone for taking the time to read my post and answer.
    Yes, Txgirl you're right i've been here for a while overstayed, and it is kind of a complicated story.
    What i was wondering if i can get a copy of my I-94 directly from the border station (whatever it's called) because i do know that they do keep a copy of my I-94 when i enter, so they can keep track of me. What do u think? thanks
