I am a Canadian citizen. Years ago, I was working in the US for a large company on an H1B visa, and the company strongly encouraged me to go through the Green Card process. Some steps were completed, but I quit the company long before the process got very far (that was in 2009 in case that matters).
Now I am faced with a US government form, on a completely unrelated matter, that asks me "have you ever applied for a green card". Their official definition of having applied for a green card is filing form I-485.
I don't know how to answer this question truthfully. I am almost certain that the only green-card-process step that was completed is "labor certification", and that I never did file I485, but the problem is that I'm not 100% sure. Most of the steps were done by the company's lawyers and I don't have a good recollection of what exactly happened.
So, my question: Is there some way I can request my records from the INS and find out whether I ever submitted an I-485 or not?
