Hello, my husband and I just realized that his Residents card is about to expire this thursday Sept 17. We are just put everything together and won't be able to send it out this friday Sept. 18 due to that we don't have enough money to pay the $545. We don't get paid until this friday Sept. 18 and can send it out that same day next day delivery. Will this affect his status and be denied? What do we need to do?

Please help us!

Thanks, zuniga2[/size]

It needs to arrive on or before Sept 17. Can you borrow the money from someone?

No. I still need to have the affadaivt signed and my husband is out of town and won't be back untill tuesday so that he can sign it. What can we do so that it won't be denied i am sending it out on Sept 18 over night delivery. What can we do then?

"Failure to file before the expiration date may be excused if you demonstrate when you submit the application that the delay was due to extraordinary circumstances beyond your control and that the length of the delay was reasonable."

I-751 Instructions (Page 1)

With a checking account - you could send a check a few days earlier.

We don't have checks. Just our visa debit cards. Do you think this would count as a reasonable cause of our delay? It would only be 3 days late at the most.

It seems you will have to buy a money order. As someone already said, safer if you can borrow the money from friends/family and send it on time.

If you end up sending it late, you should write a very good cover letter explaining the reasons for the delay.

Use someone elses check. If you file late you lose your residency and you can't work or travel. You also are subject to removal from the US.

Do not file it late. Send whatever you have now and follow up with RFE if needed. There's no guarantee your case will be processed if you file it late.

What is RFE and what is thier contact number? and all we have is $450. that does not even cover the application fee..

RFE is a Referral for evidence. You only need another $95

I would ask a friend you know that has check and has enough money in the account to cover the fees.

You can give your friend the money you have now and say you will pay the remaining as soon as you receive your paycheck. Can you ask this to your boss? Since you are working and he/she will have to pay you anyway...

If you do not have any friends/family who can loan you about $200.

you can go to any Pay Day Advance stores and borrow like $100 from them till your payday. Make sure you send this on time. Also you might need more money to FedEx or Priority it so instead of $100 get $200 and send it on time. Do it first thing Monday. Once you get paid on Friday you can pay the Pay Day Advance people with a little interest money.

I am not sure if you can do this but may be you can possibly buy a money order on your debit-card, bank balance would go negative and bank might charge you a fee, but your status in US would be intact. And on Friday you would cover it up anyways.

As fellow VJers have already mentioned you can also send the application without the application fee, and then they would ask you for the FEE by an RFE, you can send it then (not much of a problem) just a bit delay in your 10 year card processing, but you have already delayed it anyways.

Send it on TIME...

Hopefully you get this behind you...

What you need to do is beg, borrow (but not steal) the money from where ever you can! $95 is not a big amount to find from someone you know. (or a few people you know... get $20 from each) :thumbs:

It always astonishes me how people forget such major things like this. :blink: I wouldn't even dream of leaving my country (or indeed start filing for a Visa) until I had all the money I'd need for the WHOLE process saved, and safely put away someplace where I wouldn't touch it. :star:

Send it on time! Noone will tell you it will be okay if you send it late, most likely it will not.

It's pretty simple really, either you send it on time or your husband loses his status and be subject for removal. Unless your husband wants to stop working and be unable to travel except to his home country with a one way ticket, then you should find the money and send whatever you have in terms of evidence, before the deadline. If the evidence is not enough to approve your petition, they will ask for more, in the meanwhile your husband will still keep his status during this process. It all comes down to priorities, and for most people here keeping their status and finishing this process is one of biggest priorities.

Good luck,

Mike.

Not quite, USCIS does not accept application without required docuements (fee and copy of your CGC). He should send everything he has now (evidence wise) but fee must be correct. They will return your application for incorrect fee and it wil be considered not filed.
