Birthdate incorrect on I-130 (put petitioner instead of Bene)

Recommended Posts

I have a friend who is being told she has to start all over and pay close to $2000 just because she made a simple input mistake. Can she, or an attorney submit an updated form or does she really have to start all over? 

Thank you.

$2000 for a clerical error? Who told her that?

Has she received NOA1? She should not pay anyone $2000 to fix that. She should be able to do it herself, she may have to re-file but that's not going to be $2000


Swedish/American couple, met at university, eventually filed the I-129F petition in 2017.

Thank you.

best to have your friend make an account and come to ask the questions herself and not through a 3rd party.

Ok, I just got a little more clarification. ( English is not her native tongue). She apparently also put her name in the beneficiary spot instead of her mothers.

if the papers have been sent out, 1 there is no 2000 fee to pay, and 2 she should contact USCIS to get the forms corrected.

Was the petition officially denied?  More details as to who told her she must start over, please.

She paid $525, for the I-130, $1140 for the I-485 plus biometric fee.

she went to Immigration office in Maryland and the gentleman said he cannot help her complete the forms correctly. ( please know I just got to know her after this ordeal or I could have guided her.

Has the petition been denied? Or has she received NOA1?

If the petition has been denied, then she will have to refile.  That will cost a lot.  If she is not capable of accurately completing the forms, she should hire someone who can.  That will cost a lot...........

Here is everything I know (after asking better questions) she received her I-797. (she doesn't recall ever receiving a NOA1. (she is a citizen via immigration) In her paperwork she mistakenly filled out wrong birth date but more importantly, she put HER name in the Beneficiary field as opposed to her MOTHER's name. Not knowing (until later) what she had done wrong she sent the I-130 and fee (after sending the I-485 fee). She was then scheduled for a Bio-metric appointment (this is when she knew something was amiss). She asked for help via the call center and was told going to speak to someone at the local immigration office would be best. So she goes to her bio-metric appointment just in case as well as talks with an Officer in the Maryland office. He tells her she has filled the paper incorrectly and he cannot help her correct it. She is told she will have to start all over because she had herself as the Beneficiary. I can maybe see why they would want her to start all over since it's for a different person but that is a very costly penalty to pay.
