Will this cause a delay?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just found out that USCIS has me on record as filing a petition in 2005. I never filed such a petition. I'm sure it's just a name hit, maybe my name is a little common, I don't know? Anyway, I'm wondering if this is going to cause a delay with my petition? Has anyone experienced something similiar?

Thanks,

Liz

How did you find out they have you on file for a previous petition?? just curious. It will just take them a little while to clear your name from the hit. It's an IMBRA issue having an approval within 2 years and filing another petition. I don't think anyone could give you an estimated time for the clear to happen.

I'm far from being a lawyer

I think you'd have to get more information about it. If the person who "shares" your name with you has filed before, then they'd probably at least expect that you had applied for a waiver. But *you* haven't filed before so... you should seek legal advice?

sonicliz,

Although I usually find that calling USCIS is a useless endeavor, you may benefit from the call.

They should be able to clear your name with some evidence, or perhaps they can provide you with evidence supporting their claim.

Names are one thing; what about you SSN, DOB, addresses, places of employment and so forth.

All matching a previous petition that you did not file? Highly improbable. You have a better chance of winning the Lotto jackpot.

Call them first, you may get lucky and be able to resolve this at that level.

Yeah, I guess Micheal and YuAndDan are right. Names are one thing, but there are other means to identify you. Try and call USCIS and see what they have to say - maybe this time they'll actually be of any help.

Micheal? Wrong name and wrong spelling. Just great, Mew! Great! Job well done! :blush: Sorry, William! So so so sorry.

Wrong name and wrong spelling? Let's hope that's the same issue in my case! ;) I'll call them tomorrow!
