Expired Forms

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was reading on here in another section about the use of expired forms. I went through to check all of mine and all were okay except the I-765. I remember downloading it on this site a few months and started working on it. I later downloaded the other forms and so on and so on and well, to make a long story short, I ended up sending the expired form. (Yes, stupid me. I should have checked). So, the USCIS site says it accept previous editions, is that true or will they actually send an RFE for it? Will they return my entire packet? I haven't yet received a NOA1 but then again I just mailed the packet Aug 3rd. From reading others timelines, it seems they come fairly quick so I am praying ours comes soon!.

Oh the one I sent in was Rev 1/19/11 - the newest one is 4/25/12

Anyway, any thoughts.....knowledge?

From the I-765 notes, it appears they will reject your application.

"Edition Date: 04/25/12. (Previous editions, not later than 05/27/08, also accepted.)"

Since your edition is later than 5/27/08 then it will probably be returned to you.

Are you talking about i-765? I do not think it would be a problem as USCIS accept old forms for some of the cases(not very old). Even I made the same mistake :P.

But I do not see any difference b/w the old and the new form except it can be saved with updated content now.

There is no way to tell until you can tell, know what I mean?

I've heard they accepted them and I have heard they didn't.

Be strong :) think positive! If you get an RFE you will know what it's for.

Since your edition is later than 5/27/08 then it will probably be returned to you.

I think they will accept any form revised after 5/27/08.

Yes, that is bad wording... they should have used "not earlier than" or "after 2008" or something.

Once it's passed the "Acceptance" stage then you will be ok.

That typically takes a few days, perhaps a week. It's where they check the form is functionally correct: the correct fee was submitted, it's an acceptable form version, contains an original signature, etc. It's a very basic check which has nothing to do with the merits of the application itself.

Yes, I second Hypnos. If you received NOA1 it means the forms and application were accepted for processing.
