Hey all!

I'm writting to you cause I'm so confused right now. My I-485 has been returned with an I-797 C that says

"Based on the information you provided, your priority date could not be established. Please resubmit your application with the proper documentation to the address listed on the bottom of this notice"

I haven't heard anything from my I-130 but it hasn't been returned either. Can someone explain what this means and what am I supposed to do?

I'd appreciate a prompt reply. :)

Yes. I sent two packages. One with I-485 (and I-765 and the affidavit) and another with the I-130.

Only the I-485 got returned. All the forms are valid and have been signed. So I really do not understand the reason why they returned them.

Two submissions in the same envelope or two separate mailings? If two separate mailings then they do not know where your I-130 is to match it up together... and your I-485 did not provide evidence of its filing

The way it sounds, "priority date could not be established" to me means that they don't think this is for a spouse of US citizen.

Did you send proof of spouse's US citizenship?

Maybe double check that the i-130 was filled out properly too esp. at the very top, establishing USC's relationship to immigrant: make sure husband/wife checked off instead of brother/sister, for example..?

Also how about part 2 of i-485, did you check part A for that?

Ooo.. btw, yeah about the 2 packages.. does that mean two separate envelopes?

If this is what you did, you'll have to resend the i-485 with the NOA for the i-130

This was my line of thinking also.

We sent the two packages seperately to the Chicago lockbox. Only the I-485 was sent back.

So we need to wait until the I-130 is processed and approved, and send a copy of the approved I-130 back with the I-485?

OK. That makes sense..

No, I don't think you need to wait for approval. Just for the receipt NOA which you should get soon if you haven't already.

The one that tells you that USCIS has received it, and gives you the case number

Right. Make sure you send ALL of the necessary paperwork for the I485 at that time.

When you send 2 packages separately like that, they have no way to match them up together. It's not up to them do search and see if you sent everything you were supposed to in a separate package.

I think the I-130 must be actually approved...

An immigrant petition giving me an immediately available immigrant visa number that has been approved. (Attach a copy of the approval notice, or a relative, special immigrant juvenile, or special immigrant military visa petition filed with this application that will give you an immediately available visa number, if approved).

Isn't this what tripped up one of the April filers?

Everything I have read would indicate you can file one of two ways... 1) by submitting the I-485 WITH the approval notice to the I-130 OR 2) the I-485/I-130 submitted TOGETHER so they travel together and can be adjudicated at the same time.

And that is what I am not clear on. It wasn't filed with the I-485, in a way, so can they now send the NOA as proof they kinda tried to, or do they have to wait for the approval now? I couldn't figure out, reading the thread, if alanakaja had sent the NOA for their I-130 with their I-485 package. unsure.gif

I would send the I-485 back with the NOA1 from the I-130 when it arrives... worse thing they can do is send it back again

Thanks I think that's what I'm going to do, as you said worst thing that can happen to us is that they send it back again.
