Expired form online?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hubby and I getting ready to send in our form I-751 but the one they have on the website expired on 4/30/2015. I called USCIS and the agent said that since it is the only form available to send it in. Have any of yall sent in an expired form before? I would really hate for our package to be returned to us.


Is ready for this journey to begin!

Don't have a choice do you? It's the only one there not like you can use another. Some where on the site or form it says you can use previous editions...don't worry about it even the agent told you as much.

If you notice that the corner that has the expiration date also has OMB for office of management and budget. This is the department that controls the forms used by the US government and they have a procedure for printing forms. That procedue includes regular updating of forms. To know if the form is the most recent they issue an expiration date. The department that actually uses the form decides which versions are accepted and they do this by stating the expiration date. So you go to the USCIS website to see which versions of the form they will accept because they may not have given the OMB the new version of the form because there are no changes so they will state on their website that the I-751 form version 01/31/13 will be accepted even if the current date is say May 4, 2015. It just means the USCIS is slow in updating their forms just like they are slow in processing applications.wacko.gif

As the other posters have said, use the form even if it is "expired".
