On October 10th, I was sent an RFE to submit "properly filed out and signed G325As" my myself and the beneficiary. There was no indication what was wrong with the original G325As which I submitted, but after reading them over and over again, I found two errors:
1) In the "form is submitted in connection with an application for" section, we wrote "K-1 Visa" rather than "I-129F" - that doesn't seem serious, but I can see a strict adjudicator not liking it.
2) In the bottom box which asks for family name, first name, middle name, we accidentally wrote my fiance's name in Cyrillic letters.
I corrected these two mistakes and sent in these new G325As. They received them on October 10th.
My denial letter, which I just received, states the following:
"The petitioner responded to our request on October 30th, and submitted an additional copy of the Form G325 already submitted for the petitioner and the beneficiary. However, he did not submit the required Form(s) G-325A as requested.
The petitioner has not complied with the instructions on the forms by submitting the required evidence. Therefore, the petition is denied."
I note their lack of consistency - is it a G325A or G325 form?
The appeal process appears to cost $630. This is quite obviously their mistake, I'm going to refrain from some editorializing about the irony of them insisting on absolute accuracy when they don't seem to pay attention to details either.
Suggestions? Refile? Have a good lawyer look over the application first? At last check, my state still goes through CSC, which is moving relatively quickly, I have to think refiling is not only cheaper, but faster.
