what if I-129 packet was missing from AOS?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

When my wife and I entered the US together, the customs agent looked through her I-129 file packet and returned it to us. We were exhausted from the flight and didn't think that this was strange. Only recently did we realize that he was supposed to have kept it. We had our AOS interview yesterday and were told that our case had not yet been approved pending background investigation. It was at this point that I mentioned that I still had our I-129 file and handed it to him. He was shocked that I had it and seemed suspicious of why it was in our possession. I doubt that this has happened to many other people, but I just want to see if anyone has heard of this problem and can speculate on whether this will further delay our case. I am just puzzled that if the file is so important, why didn't they know that they didn't have it?

I'm surprised they didn't figure that out earlier AND that you didn't do anything to return it to the USCIS earlier. Someimes you even have a chance to take it back to the POE and hand it in at their immigration desk so that it can be sent to your service CEnter. Everything seems to be going smoothly in your case though so I wish you good luck on a fast approval. Hope your handing in the I129 Package so late didn't mess anything up.

Yes, I am curious? I knew about the brown package but I did not know what was inside. Is it the original I-129 package? Please let us know.

Thanks,

serpico,

You petitioned for your wife as an Alien Worker?

Yes, I mean the I-129F brown/yellow envelope. It says something about the US Foreign Service and had the torn corner. It had all of the information we had submitted in the I-129F application in it. For some reason I wasn't that curious about what else was in there so didn't take too careful of a look at the contents. Judging from the reaction of the USCIS officer, there is information in there that weren't supposed to see.

Well, I don't think it's about information you are not supposed to see. I'm afraid they might think that you altered some of the information, even if you didn't do it. Have you heard anything from your USCIS Office since the interview?
