I-539 denied b2 to f1. Sevis fee not paid

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

My i-539 was denied because I failed to pay sevis fee. I thought this fee needs to be paid after approval of change of status. My i-94 has expired and my classes have already begun. Now I paid the sevis fee after change of status is denied. If I file motion to reopen or reconsider will my motion be accepted.

Does anyone went through this experience.

Thanks

What error was made?

Your not following the proper procedure is no reason to reopen/reconsider your case.

Meanwhile, there is now no way for you to change status, since you are out of status and accuring unlawful presence since the denial of your change of status request. To avoid more severe penalities than a mere denial of change of status, you need to leave the US and return home where you can apply for a student visa.

Hello,

Thanks for response. Actually my lawyer advice me to pay the fees after the case is approved. I actually paid the fees after my case is denied. The denial letter states that I cannot appeal but I can file for motion to reopen/reconsider. Can I explain that it was a honest mistake of not paying sevis fee by filing motion to reconsider.

Thanks

That would be if they made an error.

It's still your responsibility to make sure you follow the directions and you didn't. You're out of status and should go home.
