Need help with I-485

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone,

Here is my situation.

I came to America as F-1 Visa on 2010 and met my husband at the same year.

11/21/2013 We got married

12/5/2013 We filed i-130

12/12/2013 Got NOA of i-130

12/13/2013 Filed i-485, i-765, i-131 and mailed them

The problem is I forgot to attach NOA of I-130 when I mailed i-485 package ( the most stupid thing I have ever done in my life!!!!!)

I called USCIS. They told me that they will reject it and mail it back to me. I have to resubmit it with the NOA.

My questions are:

1. How long it's gonna take USCIS to mail i-485 back to me? I am dying to get my EAD since I am currently working and my F1- OPT will expire on Feburary 10th 2014.

2. What would happen if I don't get my EAD after Feburary 10th 2014 (my F1-OPT expire date)?

3. Do I have to leave the country when I-130 or I-485 is pending?

I would really appreciate it if anyone can answer my questions.

Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!!!

Ah, you have another option -

and that's to file a complete AOS set this week, showing the I-130 approval.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

Candy, sorry, after rereading this:

12/5/2013 We filed i-130

12/12/2013 Got NOA of i-130

12/13/2013 Filed i-485, i-765, i-131 and mailed them

I strongly suggest you refile the I-485. I had erroneously thought you had an approved I-130, and you do not.

When you refile, include a cover letter explaining your mistake with the initial filing.

Sure, mistakes cost money, but for the exact thing that you are doing, you want the I-485 added to the I-130 as soon as humanly possible. When that's done, both will be adjudicated at the same time, within the same week.
