What should I do if my AOS Application gets rejected twice?

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a pending I-130/130A application, submitted March 2018 via LPR/Green Card holder spouse. When my spouse gets the US Citizenship, we sent my AOS packet.

 

Upon filing of I-485,131 & 765, I've attached a copy of my pending I-130/130A application including NOA with receipt number and priority date, email (name update) & the filled out forms. USCIS returned the whole AOS Packet w/ rejection notice due to incorrect payment. We attached a check amounting. $1225 for filing & bio fee. I received the rejection/receipts for the forms I-485,131,765 & even for the I-130.

 

I assumed that they've thought that the copies of the filled out forms for I-130 I have filed dated March 2018 was also an application included along w/ Forms I-485,131 & 765. That's why it's incorrect payment because they’re looking for I-130 payment ($535). So what I did, we wrote a new check w/ new date w/ amt. $1225, I included a letter explaining there some kind of error, & that I have already a pending I-130 and I attached a copy of the money order amounting $535 we've paid for the I-130 last March 2018. QUESTION: In case, it'll get rejected again, Can I re-do, re-print & resend a new one? What about my medical exams? They said that Form I-693 should be send within 60 days of filing the AOS

What you should have done instead of a copy of the I-130 was a copy of the NOA1 for the I-130

Anytime you are exempt from paying for a form you must submit the NOA1 receipt notice for that underlying petition. Ie not a copy of the whole petition.

Did you submit your NOA1 receipt notice from your I130/I130A at any time during these two resubmssions?

As stated, you're confusing them by including an I-130 NoA and a copy of the already-filed I-130. They think you're filing it again.

 

Only include the NoA and you should be fine, provided the priority date is current or you can use 'dates for filing'.

My mistake, I don’t know that only NOA should be included. Anyways, in case it gets rejected again? What can I do?

I assume you reattached the I-130 again.  If the file is again sent back ONLY send the NOA1 for the I-130.  I assume your spouse upgraded their I-130 petition.  If not then also send a copy of their US passport or naturalization certificate to let the USCIS know why you can now adjust status.
