Returned application due to wrong fee

Hi vj members :)

Our application was sent back to us with a letter saying that the application was rejected due to wrong amount in the check.

Here are my questions:

1. I sent in $350. How much exactly is it supposed to be?

2. I noticed some errors on my G325a. When i resubmit the application, i plan to include a new edited form but my concern is that uscis stamped all the pages in the initial application. What's the right thing to do here? Maybe send a revised one with an attached letter explaining the error and they should disregard the old g325a?

Anyone with a similar situation please share your experience.

Thanks in advance!

1. http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-129finstr.pdf THe instructions say $340

2. You can correct the G325A with no explanation necessary, because you had the incorrect filing fee it is doubtful that they entered any of your information into their system.

Good luck

The I-129f fee is $340 payable to Department of Homeland Security

You can fill up a new G325A form. Make sure this time to triple check and re-read instructions before submitting. Good luck! :)

Thanks for the quick response! :)

Im just hesitant to send in a new form without an explanation letter because of the stamps they put on all the pages; it's like theyre marking what you initially sent. Im not sure the stamps are for and i dont want any cause for an rfe down the line.

You can continue to worry about nothing... your choice..

The petition was never accepted... therefore the stamps are meaningless...

FWIW, any new petition comes in without stamps... that is what anything you send them will be, a NEW petition

thanks for the advise. sorry if i sound like im worrying about nothing.

are u guys suggesting that i send in a totally new application with all forms/documents as new?

im asking this because the letter i received from them says that i should just prepare a new correct fee and when i submit again, i should include the rejection letter they sent to me as the first page of my application.

so i hope u understand why im hesitant about a new form without explanation.

thank you all for your patience and guidance to clueless worrier like me.

Follow what USCIS instructed you to do, but I would Include the corrected G325a and put a sticky note on it telling them it is a corrected copy.
