Made a mistake in my I-130A form

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I sent in my I-130 and since i did the new method I sent in my I-130A application. During my application I tried to fill in the dates of where I lived to the best of my knowledge. There is a section that asks the last address outside the US I lived for one year. Then there is a section where it asks to fill on all my previous address for the last 5 years. Which I also filled in using best of my knowledge.

 

Than after I filled all of that I realized I could see my drivers licence as to when it was reissued with my new address as that will give me a better idea on which month I moved. After I saw my driver I changed the date I moved out. I was off by about 5 months in 2015.

 

So i changed it on the list of places I lived in, but I forgot to change it in the section where it asks "What is the last address you lived in for more then a year?". 

 

I was wondering if this will be big issue for USCIS? Should I send a letter explaining.

 

Thanks

It's highly probable that they check back the adresses of you historical, but it will depends of the agent who is going to be in charge of reviewing your case, if this agent consider that you should provide the address, then you will receive a RFE, but, if it consider that was an innocent mistake, then he's going to let it pass.

In my opinion 50 / 50 %

50 % He let you pass, and 50 % that you get an RFE!

I hope you get the first and be without complications.

If they ask for an RFE what should I provide them? Like I made a mistake on the dates. what kind of evidence will i be expected to provide?

If all the other stuff is 100% ok, maybe they ask you to provide your address record, but, watching your timeline, you already received NOA1, so it would be a chance that you don't get the RFE! But It's a chance, expect that...in case of a RFE.

Well, you are in Canada, obtain that record, (in case of being hit by a RFE) should not be hard! Every addresses were we were living, are recorded, and not difficult to get! Maybe there is a department of Civil Records or something!

Be proactive and just, try to retrieve them with time and in case of RFE you can answer them ASAP!
