This question has been asked many many times already.

The expiration date is not important for you, the EDITION date is what matters. The current edition of the form on the USCIS website is just fine, as well as previous editions of the form are also acceptable.

The current form is fine to use.

You mean it doesn't matter if I use the g325A form that is already expired? The Form said "Expires 02/28/2015" and that date was already past... That's why i am having a second thought of using it. I'm afraid that it might cause of delay or problem with my petition... :cry: Sorry, it's my first time on filling a petition. Please help! :crying::crying:

Yes you can use it even if it says it is already expired. It will not cause problems with your petition.

As I stated the expiration date is not for you. It is an internal expiration date for the OMB, in order to make sure the forms are regularly updated. If you go to the USCIS website on the page where you download the forms, it will tell you what the current edition of that form is and whether or not it will accept previous editions of the form.

The edition date of the form is what matters.

For example on the G-325A page:

Edition Date

02/07/13. Previous editions accepted.

Thank you so much Zedayn! Now i can call my husband to fill up his G325A form too, and send it to me as soon as possible.! Thank you so much! I didn't ask for help maybe I will be like waiting for the form to be updated with no assurance of when it will be. And yes, it will cause of delay too. Again, thank you for the quick Helpful reply. Yey!

The expiration date that you see is the expiration of the comment period to the Office of Management and Budget, the form itself does not expire.
