"fingerprint fee deficiency" but husband had biometrics done in home country

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband is in the process of applying for AOS after coming to the US on a Fiance Visa. We just sent in our packet, but now have a "fingerprint fee deficiency" on the USCIS website. We didn't send the biometrics fee, but that's because that fee is waived when you came over on the fiance visa and had your biometrics exam within a year of sending in the application (his was just 3 months ago). Why are we receiving this notice and how much is it going to slow us down??? HELP!

Thank you!

"On May 18, 2013, a fingerprint fee deficiency notice for this case I485 APPLICATION TO REGISTER PERMANENT RESIDENCE OR TO ADJUST STATUS was mailed to you advising you that we have not received the finger print fee, the correct amount, or a signed check or money order. The notice provided you with instructions to follow to submit the necessary payment. Please submit the required payment as soon as possible or we will not be able to resume processing of this case."

Have to do biometrics again and pay for it, again when you remove conditions, and again when you apply for citizenship.

But why?? Will he have to have another medical exam?? It says on the instructions that you only need one if the other was within a year. He had to pay once he got to US to have a doctor sign the vaccine form because the doctor in Sweden didn't give him a copy of it for the AOS application. Also, while he was there, they did the TB test and the syphilis test. Will he have to do these for a THIRD time in a couple months??

This is torture :( We wrote a letter explaining that he already had his exam in Sweden and that we were including the vaccines as proof. The doctor also gave us a sealed envelope (the US doctor, NOT the Swedish doctor) for no apparent reason. We just submitted it with the other AOS forms. I'm so confused.... We just sent in the AOS papers a week ago and already it seems like it will never end...........

You will have to pay for and do biometrics in each step of the process. He will not need a new medical exam.

Yes it will slow them all down. You need fingerprints for the EAD too (though you don;t have to pay again for them - it's done at the same time.) I am surprised they even accepted your case without the proper fee.
