Anyone forget to sign check for I-751?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I prepared the package for I-751 and sent it before the end. They received the package 2 days ago and the check hasn't been cashed in.
Now my husband asked me if I signed the check and now I'm no longer sure. Freaking out a bit.

I know they will take the check and process it digitally using the routing number and bank account, so I'm wondering if the signature missing will be a huge problem.

Has anyone forgotten to sign their check? If so, what happened?

Wondering if I should call USCIS tomorrow to ask them.

Perhaps the wisest would be to prepare a new package, but in that case it's a hassle because the affidavits will have to be resigned? (I sent the original and kept a copy).

Don't worry!! they would mail the entire package back to you....When we originally sent mine, we forgot to sign the 1-751 form and within 2 or 3 days they sent us the entire package back stating that the signature was missing and to sign it and resend it.

I suppose it depends what you mean by "a huge problem"; yes, they process the checks/cheques digitally, but they can't do so without a signature (and rightly, of course!). When the stack arrives and a person initially checks your paperwork (before the biometrics scheduling and the general wait) if there are any immediate issues that pop up—unsigned or undated forms, check/cheque issues, etc—it'll be all sent back to you, as indicated by the previous poster. Paperwork is only accepted (or should only be accepted, barring missed inspections) if this is all complete, and then RFEs later issued if the worker (eventually) reviewing your case wants to see more evidence.


There's that smell again...

Since I couldn't sleep last night, I prepared the same package and found another error in it (small but still annoying). I'm 2 weeks away from expiry so I'm wondering if I should wait for them to send the package back to me, or if i should just send in a new package.

Wait for them to return your package, make your corrections and sign the check--you may have actually signed the check so you do not want two applications in the system confusing things, but make certain you submit the new package before your GC expires.. This is a good example why one should not wait until the last minute to file the ROC.

I think I had signed the check afterall because they never sent the package back to me and my stuff was processed.

What if I get a stamp after expiration date, because we can't seem to ever ever get an appointment in the DC Metro area, if we drive to Norfolk, VA will they stamp it?  Anyone else had this problem???  It's so frustrating!!!
