Notice Was Returned To USCIS Because The Post Office Could Not Deliver It

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been waiting since March 31st to receive word back about i-485 and I-130 since I have not

even received the receipts for those yet. The only thing I got was 3 emails with my receipts numbers and one hard copy mailed to me for I-765.

Today I received an update about my case which is below.

Notice Was Returned To USCIS Because The Post Office Could Not Deliver It

On May 4, 2015, the Post Office returned a notice we sent you for your Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or to Adjust Status, Receipt Number MSCXXXXXXXXXX, because they could not deliver it. This could have a serious effect on your case. Please go to www.uscis.gov/e-request to request a copy of the notice immediately. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address.

I live in Kotzebue Alaska which is a small village, we don't get our mail delivered to us so through the postman and everything is sent to our PO Box. For some reason the letter USCIS sent me about my I-485 was undelivered and sent back to USCIS. I'm not sure why because the address on it is correct and I have received 1 NOA for I-765 already. Anyway I called USCIS and they couldn't tell me why it was undelivered and said they would request the service center to resend the mail.

My problem is they said it would take an extra 15 - 30 days and if I don't received anything after the 30 days to give them a call back. What if the post office screw up again? Do I just keep waiting? Our post office is unreliable at times and I am worried that this will have a major impact on my case.

Has anyone got any advice for me? USCIS wasn't so helpful.

Did you ask for a change of address to receive mail at the PO Box only? If the hey send to the physical address again, it will go back again.

You might want to follow up with a human to see if it got changed. Some forms clearly have physical address and mailing address. Maybe not so on the I-130. You might have to explain your unique situation. The receipts notices are not so important, but you do want to receive the EAD card and green card.

I called about 4 times earlier today and customer service kept telling me they couldn't give me any more information apart from filling in the change of address form online. I even got transferred to a tier 2 customer service rep and that did me no good, he seemed to be rushed and gave me the same info as the other reps.

I will try call again tomorrow and see if I can get someone to help because the I-130 asks for addresses in at least 3 different sections and I'd hate to get RFE for just having the wrong address on there.

Man this stuff is so stressful can't wait for it to be over lol
