Should I include unauthorized work in my employment history?

Accuracy and honesty on a marriage-based green card application are extremely important. Successful applicants therefore list all of their employment history, including any period of unauthorized work.

Leaving out this information can have potentially bigger consequences (such as denial of the application) than previously working without authorization.

We’ve prepared a detailed guide to completing the “employment history” section of the marriage-based green card application.

I have moved since I submitted my application – do I need to let USCIS know for each form?

Yes, an applicant should change the address for each form to avoid missing any important notices from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) about any of the forms. We’ve put together this detailed guide on how to report a change of address to USCIS.
