Hi everyone

 

Thank you for reading.

 

We sent in our CR1 packet in late February 2019. It arrived at USCIS March 1st, 2019.

 

It was rejected due to an "incomplete mailing address." Where we live doesn't have streets or house numbers. I switched to a US mailing address to remedy this.

 

Anyways, the I-130 and I-130A forms that we sent in February 2019 had an expiration date of 7/31/18. That was the updated version on the USCIS website at the time.

 

Yesterday, we received our application back in the mail after being rejected. I fixed the incorrect addresses on our forms, but now I see that USCIS has updated the I-130 and I-130A forms on their site to an expiration date of 2/28/21.

 

Am I supposed to fill out the updated version from scratch or just fix the few pages that need fixed in the old forms that we sent in?

 

Thank you for your help.

You have to send in the most recent forms they have. If you send outdated forms they'll send everything back again, even when you just made 1 mistake on the old ones.
