Please help me find my mistake

I filed my whole package for AOS a month ago. After filing we got it back saying a document was an outdated version. We checked and indeed the I-864 was an old one. So we printed the new one and send all back. Yesterday we got my package again in the mail saying exact the same thing: there is an outdated version. The expiry dates are the right ones. The one for I-131 does have an expiry date for 2018 but it's that one that is on the USCIS website. The only thing I can think about is that down on the papers, there is a date too and that date is different even though the expire date is the same. Can that be our fault?

Did you download all the forms off the USCIS website? That's the only website that has the most up to date forms.

 

If so, did you check the 'edition date' for each form on the 'home page' of that form? For example, https://www.uscis.gov/i-131. If all the edition dates match the dates on the forms you downloaded from their website (you normally shouldn't have to check this since they only let you download the most recent one) then you could call USCIS and clear this up, since it seems like someone is sending your package back for no reason.

The files are from the USCIS website yes. They are just downloaded some time ago. But I think the problem lies with the I-485. That's the only one that has a different date under on the page, even if the expiry date is the same... It's a bit annoying. Two more weeks and my 90 days are up...

I think you downloaded an older version a while ago, cause I just downloaded them, and the edition date on the website matches the date on the bottom of the I-485. It's best to download the forms the moment you're going to fill them out and send them since they do get updated from time to time. Just download the latest one, fill it out, check if each and every form is the most recent one and off you go! Then you should be fine.

That’s pretty odd. I too just recently filed for my AOS still waiting for my NOA1(hopefully will run smoothly). The only thing outdated with the form edition is the I-131 which expires December 2018. If you downloaded and printed from USCIS website i think you wont have any issue at all. But who knows it might be the other way round.. it’s best if you have secured a copy of all your filled up forms for checking purposes..
