Frustration Growing with USCIS

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I filed my AOS co-jointly with my I-765 on May 23rd. It took me a month to get e-mail notifications for all three applications (I-485, I-130, I-765). A few days later I got two notifications in the mail for the I-130 and I-485, no I-765 notification. A MONTH later (almost 2 months total after filing), I get my hole I-765 back saying I didn't include a check hmmm ok. Obviously not needed since I filed jointly in the same packet.

I shrug it off and just send a whole new packet a few days later and I include my receipt for the I-485. Now another 4 weeks later (close to three months since original filing) and I receive the WHOLE packet back again saying I did not include fees and/or I did not include the I-485 receipt notice. The funny thing is that in the packet they sent me back the I-485 is right there and it even had USCIS markings on the side.

Now I'm not sure how these people function or how they process these things, but it seems to me that the people doing this function like robots and reject anything that is even slightly messed up.

What makes it worse is that I've had this job offer since May 10 and I told my employer it would take around 60 days to process it, now I don't know what I'm going to tell them when they email me to check on the process. I'm really trying to hold on to them because it took me almost a year after college to get that job. And right now I'm waiting for my green car interview letter and I don't feel like applying for the EAD again. But that could have a serious backlash if my green application drags on much longer than expected.

Ok I'm done ranting.

There IS a fee with the application, the total of $1,070...did you send a check to that amount?

I read your previous thread and we went through al the possibilities or problems, and we could find none. I still think something is wonky because this happened twice, and thousands of people send in these forms and have no problem. Very strange that it would happen twice to you. The best I can suggest is to go over the form or even fill out a new one (it's so short). Did you check permission to accept employment and not renew (it should be "accept")? After that, I would write a detailed cover letter pointing out what you are doing and what evidence you have (the I-485 NOA1) and maybe even reference and quote their own statutes. Good luck.
