I-864 AOS form "expires 3/31/2015"

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The I-864 AOS form I am finding on the internet shows "expires 3/31/2015" at the top right. Is this the same form that everyone else is sending in with their AOS package? I guess it's good for another 11 days.

I am finding it here:

http://www.uscis.gov/i-864

...see link for "Form I-864 (428 KB PDF)"

Thanks,

JJ

That expiration date isn't for you, it's for the OMB. You can safely keep using this form until USCIS issues a new edition. THERE IS NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.

Hi Saylin,

What does OMB stand for? Thanks!

My question too. Google tells me its for Office of Management and Budget. Not sure how they fit in if that what Saylin meant by OMB.

Hi Saylin,

As the member below answered, it's the Office of Management and Budget. You can see the OMB mentioned right above the expiration date.

My question too. Google tells me its for Office of Management and Budget. Not sure how they fit in if that what Saylin meant by OMB.

Long answer:

The Office of Budget and Management (OMB) is part of the Executive Branch of the US government and it is the government agency that has the duty of creating and managing the thousands of Federal forms used by the US government. They keep track of the current verison by issuing a date of validity. It is up to each department within the US government to submitt an updated form or version to the OMB and they will make it the current verion with a new expiration date. It is up to each department to determine if they will accept older versions. A good example is the IRS. They will not accept a 1040 for 2014 if the date is 2013. The USCIS however, will accept older versions of some forms and not others (the I-864 is one I can think of where they changed to format so much that they will only accept the current version). Go to the USCIS website to get the latest form and to check which versions are valid. There is usually a section as follows(this is for the I-485):

Edition Date

06/20/13; (01/18/11, 11/23/10, 11/08/10; 7/15/10; 12/03/09 editions also accepted.)

So as long as the USCIS will accept that version of the form you are good to use it.

So the USCIS will accept the I-485 that expired in 2013 and you can also see that that was the last time they bothered to update this form.
