Accidentally sent $590 check instead of $680 or??

Recommended Posts

hi,

 

I am removing conditions (i751) and I might have mistakenly sent a check worth $590 and not $680.

I was checking the USCIS website today and noticed it says $680 now!, I can swear it was $590 at the time of my filling. The package was sent on December 27 and arrived on December 29, 2016.

 

$595, effective 12 a.m. Eastern U.S. time, December 23, 2016. (You may be required to pay an additional $85 biometric services fee for a total of $680. See the form Instructions for payment details.)

 

Can anyone confirm if I am right or wrong?

Will I get the package back and have to send it again, is there any 'grace period'?

 

Thanks

It was $505 + biometrics ($85) = $590. So yes, that was the old fee.

unlucky... thanks :\ I wonder what takes them so long to ship it back

Patience.  You will need it during this process.  

 

You are one of hundreds of thousands of cases.  A three day holiday weekend and a few working days is hardly enough time for them to open, process, and resend your submission to you.

I agree with soapface.  You committed a good faith error that happens, I am sure all the time.  The only  way to avoid this errors, is to double and triple check the package before mailing, and if you can have somebody else that knows about the process, to go over it for you.

Thank you for everyone who responded. On a bright note, it gave me time to re-evaluate my supportive evidence and I added some more.

Please let me know if the list below should be sufficient enough -

 

Copy of GC (myself)

Copy of drivers license (me & wife) showing the same address.

Copy of Car Insurance on both of our names

2x photos

signed i-751

cashiers check

join credit cards statements and copy of the front and back card.

tax returns 2015 

join bank accounts statements for 2 accounts from various dates 2015 all the way to 12/16.

Mortgage (only on my name, but still it shows the same address)

Power of Attorney - notarized - when we were closing on the house I was out of town so I gave my wife the PoA to sign on my name.

End of year mortgage summary

Travel insurance for me, my wife and my step daughter on various trips 2014-2016

Airline tickets from many trips we did (20) including out of the country.

Pictures from various vacations around the world celebrating holidays and birthdays

Health insurance that my work covers for both of us (2 years)

Health insurance claims

Life insurance showing my wife as 100% beneficiary 

Statement of benefits that both of us has from my work

Medical cards for 2 years back.

Electricity, Gas, Phone, Water bills (some show both of our names, some show one but the address is always the same)

Pictures of me visiting my step daughter school

Access letter from the bank confirming we have active accounts with activity since two years ago

two sworn affidavit from our neighbor and friend

 

 

 

Now, this is a lot of information, and I am looking for the easier way to present it to the immigration-

Do I write on each paper on the top what is it? or just keep them as-is printed and send them and let them figure it out?

Is there anything that you would add?

 

Thanks!
