Hi all,

 

I sent in my application package (with I-130,130A, 485, 864, 765, 131)  before and I just received all of the application receipts from USCIS this morning. But the money order for my I-765 is returned to me, the letter said:

 

 

Recently, you submitted an application for immigration benefits. That form was submitted with an extra remittance that is not required to process this application. If you submitted a G-1450 it has been destroyed and will not be returned to you. Otherwise, your payment is being returned to you with this notice. No additional action by you is required at this time.

 

Is that mean I don't have to pay for the I-765 since I submitted it with I-485?
