I already submitted my I-485 to USCIS BUT I did not list being self employed on the i-485 because I only did it for a few months and I made no income (bc I worked on 100% comission), so I thought I did not need to list it.
But I filled out a few W9's for the companies that hired me (not sure if those W9's got sent to IRS)
And to complicate matters even more I just checked my credit recently and the DBA name I used for my company showed up on my credit report. This DBA name was never registered with the state (not sure how it got on my report)... Do I need to list it on I-485, IF SO, how can I correct it BEFORE my interview OR even at the time of my interview??
Thanks in advance.
I am applying through marriage and my wife is a citizen.
You can share this additional information to the interviewing officer when the time comes for said interview. You can always explain that you forgot to include said information when you completed the application since you were self employed for such a short amount of time.
The I-485 does not ask if you are employed or not. There is no good way to amend an application other than tell the officer at your interview.
