Rejection notice

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Recently submitted full AOS package, with checks for: I-130 $355. I-765 $340.00 and I-485 $1010.00.

I have received all NOA receipts for the above yesterday.... no problem there.

However, today I receive another NOA "rejection notice" that says...

Recently you submitted an application for immigration benefits. That form was submitted with extra remittance that is not required to process your application, or the incorrect fee was submitted. Your check is being returned to you with this notice. No additonal aciton by you is required at this time.

Sounds simple enough, I paid too much and they returned a check for $340 for the I-765. ( i raised seperate checks for all the forms).

Couple of observations though.

1. The receipt number on this NOA refers to the I-485 and not the I-765.

2. And why does it say "rejection notice"

3. Do I have to refile the I-765, when I read the notice, clearly says no action required - but it is a rejection notice.

Any help ..... Spoke to an attorney who is looking into, she did confirm that she has seen a few of these recenlty, and there was no need to refile. However, non of those had "rejection notice typed on them" but had the same text about the check being returned.

Many thanks

It was rejected because you paid extra $340 for I-765. When you filed I-485, if you read the instructions thoroughly, the amount of $1,010 basically covers EAD and AP, if you wish to work and/or to leave the country for special purposes while you're not approved yet. That's why the check was returned to you.

Since you received all NOAs, you shouldn't worry about it. No action required, like the notice says.

Cheers.


Yes! I am approved!!! :)

It took only two (2) months to be approved. Hooray!

Thanks for that, to substiante your views, just realized that the date on the check return NOA was 21st April. The date on the three receipt NOA's is 25th April, they arrived in reverse order. If that makes sense.

Everything on the three NOA's seems correct and ok....biometric tests ect.....
