Mistake while filing i-130 form

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I made a couple errors on my 485 and 765 applications.  (Incorrect visa number and incorrect eligibility code).  

 

I called USCIS and they advised I write a letter and explain the error and the correction.  (Be detailed - page number, section number etc).

 

I also went to Infopass where I was advised usually clerical errors won't result in a straight denial, and that someone physically checks over packages when they are received.  

 

Since you don't have an NOA yet, wait for that to come so that you can reference the receipt number and direct the mail to the right service center.

I would wait till you get an RFE, or  the next time you send in documents if not, and then send a corrected form with short cover letter explaining.

Hi Penguin_ie Thank you for your response. I have just received my NOC1 ..is there a possibility that I will send an letter to USCIS stating that there is a typo on the i-130 form and this is a correct copy by mentioning my Receipt number. As RFE will further delay our process by 2 months :(

 

Thanks,

Arpan

Thank you Cryssiekins for your response. So do you mean that you have send a mail to USCIS center with correct documents by mentioning your Receipt Number after receiving your NOC-1.

 

Thanks,

That is what I did.  Use the mailing address for the service centre your case was assigned to (ie Texas, California etc).

 

I put my name and address on the top of the letter and then included a re: line that had:

- Receipt Number MSCxxx

- Full Name & DOB

- Alien Number

 

Be detailed in your description of the error.  (part number, page number, section number etc) and the reason for the error etc. 

 

Wprst case, they will send you an RFE for anything further, but at least self-initiating the correspondence will give you some peace of mind.  (It did for me - I was panicked.  Infopass also helped to calm me down)
