Question regards to I-130 rejection

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I missed a signature on the I-130 form so it is rejected along with other forms I sent.

On the I-797C of the rejected I-130, the rejected reason stated I am missing a signature. The problem is, if the I-130 is rejected, will it cause other forms along with the package(such as I-485, I-765, and I-131) be rejected as a consequence?

I have these forms in the package, and some with the I-797C rejection form

1. I-130 (with I-797C)

2. G-325a

3. I-864

4. I-485 (with I-797C)

5. I-765 (with I-797C)

6. I-131 (with I-797C)

7. G-1145

Out of them, the I-130 was rejected due to missing signature as I-797 states, but the I-485 and I-765 forms do not state any particular reasons of rejection like the I-130 form. I can not find any mistakes on the I-485 and I-765.

Only the I-131 form states the reason "Your application/petition was submitted with a single remittance and one or more of the application(s)/petition(s) were unacceptable for the reason(s) specified on the related Notice(s) of Action (Form I-797). Please correct the flawed application(s)/petition(s) and resubmit the application/petition package with appropriate fees and any supporting documents to the USCIS address below."

Does it mean that if the I-130 is rejected, all the related forms are also rejected as well? But how come other forms like the G-325A and I-864 are not rejected?

Please help me out here :(

Thanks in advance

Well what was sent back to you? Was the entire packet with all those forms sent back to you?

Regardless, I do not believe USCIS can move forward without the I130

What visa do you hope to get from all of this? You did not fill in your timeline

Good luck

Thank you for the reply!

Yes the entire package was sent back, with the four forms stapled with I-797Cs.

I am filing for my wife. We got married in September and she is currently an international student in US.

I am filing for her change of status and green card.

So I guess it is because of the incomplete I-130 that caused other forms with the I-797Cs on them without specific reasons?

The I-130 is the basis for eligibility to file the I-485. If the I-130 is rejected, everything else gets halted too. Just fix the I-130 and send everything back to them.

My only RFE was due to me missing a signature as well. They send another form for you to sign and you mail it back in. Easy as that!
