I was informed that because he is currently working in the U.S., we can file all the forms concurrently to USCIS, including: I-130, I-485, I-693, I-864, I-765, and I-131. Is that correct and is that all? Do we need G-325A as well? Why do we need I-131? In addition, I currently have no income (I am a graduate student), will that influence anything? Since I see that on Form I-864 Affidavit of Support I am suppose to list my income and employment.
You need all the forms you list, as well as a G-325 for yourself and a G-325A for your foreign spouse. The I-131 "Advance Parole" is a travel document which will allow your spouse to travel in and out of the US while his application is pending. It is great insurance in case he will want to quit his job and renounce his work visa after filing for adjustment of status based on a marriage to a USC. It costs nothing to file and the fee for it, just like for the I-765 work permit, is included in the $1,070 he will need to pay for the I-485.
Last, but not least, you are forgetting the form for the medical exam, which will also need to be included, in a sealed envelope by the USCIS certified "surgeon" at the conclusion of the medical exam.
You both need a G-325. You do not fill out the medical form, it is filled out by a US Civil Surgeon and must be submitted in sealed, unopened envelope. yes your lack of income will influence the decision unless you have a joint sponsor - get a joint sponsor. You do not need n I-131 unless you plan to travel while the applications are pending.
