Hello!I am so upset right now.I sent my AOS forms on May 17th.I didn't receive any e-mail or text message.So today i receive the entire packege with I-797C rejection notice saying the check amount is incorrect.I posted here before about money order.I was trying to buy 2 money orders one for 420$ and one for 1070$.so a lady in Western Union issued 3 checks.One for 420$ ,one for 1000$ and one for 70$.when I asked her she responded that they can't issue money order for more then 1000$.So I send all 3 of them I made them pay to the order U.S. Department of Homeland Security.I also wrote my adress and signed them.I just can't understand if that was the reason and I just need to do 1 check for 1070$?Also I don't have personal ckecks right now,will it be a problem if my husband will wright a check for I-485 form?Thank you

I, too, was told that the maximum amount of a money order is $1000 (this was at a US post office). Consequently, I obtained three money orders: $420, $1000, $70 - just like you. I sent all three with my application package to the Chicago lockbox and had no problems whatsoever. I have no idea what went wrong with your application but it certainly is unfortunate.

So I got my whole package last Thursday and resend it on Friday.I just did personal check for 1070$ instead of 2 money orders.Yesterday (one week later) I got text massage+e-mails saying that all my applications was accepted and in 7-10 days i will receive my official receipt notice by mail.checks was cashed already as well.So I guess it really depends on a person that viewing your case to accept or not 2 money orders.Because based on responds for some people 2 money orders worked just fine.I just want to suggest to do personal check for 1070$ instead of money order to avoid delay.

I may be in the same shoe as you. I sent my packet on May 18th and still nothing. Although it hasn't been 35 days yet (29 so far I think) I'm going to get another packet ready to go on Monday just in case they return my packet. Pretty much every filer on this site including June filers already got their notifications, that's why I'm highly concerned right now.
