Pls Advise: NoA Rejection Response

27 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Please Advise on Response to I-130 due to failure to fill out application Part C address.

I got off the phone with a customer service rep. Not too much help but I did answer a lot of my own questions.

However, I did not trust the customer service's rep idea to just send it in again. There was a reason for a denial..

The address reads as follows:

Building letter, Floor number, Stair number, Street, Neighborhood, Apt, City, Province, Country, Zip code

This is the address by which services like DHL have delivered mail. And is the information request by part C.

Now on the I-130 Form Part C. Q 2. Address is filled out as "see Attached."

On the see attached form:

It reads

Name

A#: None

Form, I-130, Q. 2: Beneficiary's Address (information about your Relative)

- Building letter, Floor number, Stair number, Street, Neighborhood, Apt, City, Province, Country, Zip code (part of cuban address list a postal zone as well).

On the bottom the page is Signed and dated.

The address is correct.

What would be a proper response to this?

Some say letter. Not sure what to write on the letter but I am open to ideas. Thank you for the future assistance. I am deeply saddened. If I could, I would delete the previous topic. If a moderator is on, I politely request that my previous Noa Rejection topic be deleted. Thank you

If I understand a 'rejection response' correctly -

it's a precursor to the 'whole casefile being returned to you'.

I could be wrong, though.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

Rumba,

This is not the good news and I can understand your feelings, sorry to hear this!

Did you attach the complete address on a separate paper and didn't write anything on I-130 form? I mean left this field blank? Please let me know, then I will understand more clearly.

Loto

On the I-130 Form, I wrote "See Attached." And I wrote the complete Address on the Attached form.

Oh yes, I have the entire packet in front of me as we speak. I am planning my next move so I can move into as what i see can be a VERY LONG Journey!

Your attached sheet format looks great, nothing wrong in it. But usuaully, attachment sheet is used for multi-line items that do not have the space in the main form.

So, I would recommend to create a new I-130 form, fill everything as you did. On the address part, using a black ink (in Capital), write by hand all the details. Even if it overflows, it is ok. My G-325A had overflows like this and had no issues.

Hope this helps you. Since there is no other issues, you can include the entire set back to USCIS. Also, take a second set of photocopies of the documents requested and include with it. The same photos and the check would be ok, as long as they have not yet crossed anything on it.

Good luck!

Loto

i am in the same boat, just received my rejection notice because of section C: address... the address is there. i don't know what to do.. the only thing i can think of is question 21. i marked N/A since i've only been going there on vacation and not actually live with her. maybe i shouldve put that instead of N/A. sigh. i honestly don't know what to do. so frustrating

What's your timeline?

Yes, you should never write N/A on Q# 21. You should have written the last address that you lived together, even if it is for couple of hours. Any married person will have an address where they married at least, right?

Loto

I don't think question 21 is what got them rejected. I too put in N/A because truthfully, we NEVER lived together at an address. We stayed at different hotels for all 5 of my trips. How do you choose which address to put in? I consulted with a few of my friends that had their petitions approved and they also never lived with their foreign spouses after the marriage and before filing. They too put N/A. I would advise these people to examine their I-130's with a fine-tooth comb and see what else might have raised the red flag with the addresses entered on the form.

Can you please create a timeline? It would be helpful for others to see when you filed and the milestone dates for each step. Timelines are also used in VJ to compute averages and other statistical results.

Thanks!

Hey Loto,

Thanks for the information..

ALl of the papers returned to me have lines/ numbers on the side. I am a tad confused as to whether they are still usable. My G-1145 has a pen line down the side as does the first page of my i-130. Now that I see they might have not accepted See attached for the Address on the I-130.. Now that the packet is stapled and organized (they threw away a lot) by their standards.. is this an invitation to send it back as is After I fill out a new I-130 and attach it on top of the entire packet?

Seems to me I'd do this..

Fill out New I-130

Take entire packet (four seperate piles stapled together)

place new I-130 on top

Connect a new check to I-130 (the old one is stamped with Department of Homeland Security)

GO to post office and send it off...

You really think they'd send my packet back because of the decision to See attached in address? As it says in I-130 instruction form... If extra space is needed to complete any item, attach a continuation sheet, indicate the item number, and date and sign each sheet. Why include it if not accurate...

I'm thinking cover letter.

Now that I think about it.. If it is a see attached sheet for my wife.. Even though it is my I-130 form.. Did i need to put her name on top? Could that possibly be the problem?

Thanks Loto I appreciate the advice im working on my new I-130 now.

Wait a second.. I put question 20 as N/A because Spanish uses Roman letters.. Could it be they wanted me to write the address anyways? The example form had it listed as N/A for her husband.

I left 22 blank... As she is not in the USA

Just put her name for question 17...

19 is see attached...

Q. 15 see attached.. Not on my see attached sheet... This is it huh! Aw damnit!

RumbaBumba, you have so many flaws in your I-130 form. Once you correct all of them and re-send it, you should be fine.

As a general rule of thumb, avoid unnecessary attachments as many as possible and try to squeeze everything in the form itself even if there is little overflow!

Another rule of thumb, answer each and every question in all USCIS forms. If some are not applicable to you, N/A, NONE, UNKNOWN etc. must be used based on the question. Also, though they may not explicitly say it, use all caps. One officer may be ok if one does not follow these guidelines, does not mean other officers would agree with it.

Loto

Rumba, did they cash out your $355 payment, or did they just return the whole package without touching the money?

I'm asking because if they didn't take the payment, then the only harm done is just the delay, but at least you won't have to pay twice for the fee.

Also, as others mentioned, it would be very helpful if you let us know your timeline (i.e. when you submitted, if and when you got a NOA1, when they returned the package etc.).

On my I-130 on that same question I put the last date I was with him visiting...one of many but I only put the last trip because that is what they ask... I put from 6/15/2010 to 7/9/2010.

hope that helps

Rumba - For Q 17, I put in MY name (I am the petitioner), not my husbands. The question states: "List husband/wife and all children of your relative". I am the wife of my alien relative, therefore I put my name down. Some of these questions are, unfortunately, very confusing and have to be read carefully.
