NOTE: If the person has been in the U.S. at least 5 years, but obtained their status as "lawfully admitted for permanent residence" less than 5 years ago, obtain documentation that they have resided in the U.S. for at least 5 years. This verification is separate from the verification of their current BCIS status.
Example: The M family entered the U.S. on 03/15/07. Both children, Child A and Child B are legal permanent residents. When the case is approved in AIS, the system enters two Item 80 codes 789; one for each child. Refer to the boxes below for sample Item 80 coding for these children.
Item 80 code 789 for Child A
Item 80 code 789 for Child B
When the system begins processing for April 2012 (5 years + one month from the date in Item 80), the system will update Item 74 for each child from code 38 to code 35 and delete the 789 codes from the case.
