I just dont get it....We used the USICIS to get the most updated form. Then it was returned to us as it wasnt the most updated for and they tell us that it wasnt the most updated form and the same forms are on the web site now.....HOW do I get the most updated form so I can get this freaking thing filed?

And which form are we talking about?

A few things about the forms, USCIS makes notes for most forms, "Previous version accepted" only a few they request a specific newest version

As for the OMB date on the forms, this date has nothing to do with the form's validity, it has to do with a survey that the government agency (USCIS or DOS) is conducting with regard to the paperwork reduction act, for the Office of Management and Budget. The forms remain valid long after the survey date has passed.

Well, this (http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-485.pdf) is the most recent I-485 on the USCIS website. I know google sometimes takes you to an old version of a form if you click directly through to the form from google, but eh I don't really know how else you could've used an old form if you got it from USCIS, especially as the website says they're still accepting older editions of the form from 2009.

What form is expired? Have you checked them all? Sometimes the cookies in a website will retain the old info so you might need to do a hard refresh (usually Ctrl+F5).

We tried everything....deleting cookies downloaded the most updated versions of adobe and more. We even had a couple others go on their computers to get the forms.....still we get the expired I485 12.31.2010 forms. We ordered the damn things now by snail mail. Are we seriously the only ones to have this issue?

It looks like "Rev. 11/23/10" (stated on the bottom of the form), is the most current form. Even though it says "Expires 12/31/10" on the top of the form, i don't believe that is the actual expiration date.

Are you looking at the "USCIS i-485 page", becuase it shows the current edition is the 11/23/10.

Hopefully this helps, but sorry your having so much trouble with it.

I think I have found the answer. God help me I shall have a heart attack if they return it to me again. At the top of the page the expires 12/31/2011 but at the bottom it says something else. Sooooo we shall try this again. Thanks so much for trying to help me out!

Yes the one at bottom of form is what you go by.

As I said before OMB date is NOT a form's expiration date, IGNORE that date, it has to do with the Paperwork Reduction act.

So the I-485 link above is still okay to use??? I was looking at the expiration date 12/31/10 as well and wondered if it was okay to use.

Should be fine. Here: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.5af9bb95919f35e66f614176543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=3faf2c1a6855d010VgnVCM10000048f3d6a1RCRD&vgnextchannel=db029c7755cb9010VgnVCM10000045f3d6a1RCRD this part here:

Edition Date: 11/23/10; (11/08/10; 7/15/10; 12/03/09 editions also accepted)

So the current edition date is fine and still accepted, and several of the previous edition. I'm really not sure why the OP's was returned so I think it might not have been the I-485 and could have been one of the other ones or just USCIS stuffing up, yet again.

Nope....I filled out the forms for the I 485 Mid December and when I checked to make sure that there were no issues....I missed that date. So we actually did file the wrong version of the form. We have the correct forms now and sent them in. Am hoping to hear in a few days of there acceptance.....Gosh I sure hope they accept them ....I know its just the AOS....bust jeesh this is the most stressful thing I have ever encountered in my entire life....AND I HAVE TEENAGERS!
