The form DS-2029 for a child born to a US citizen born abroad that is found on travel.state.gov website has an expiration date of July 31, 2019. In a short search on the website, I did not see where to go to address the issue. Will this likely be corrected in the near future with an updated form? Does anyone know who to contact about the issue? At what point in time should I just submit the expired form?

Pay no attention to the form expiration dates - these are for internal use only within USCIS. Provided that the form you are using is the one that is currently on the website, it’s the correct version to use.

Thanks. Considering some things seem to be rigid rules and others seem to be suggestions it is hard to know which are which. I appreciate the help in distinguishing between the 2.

Please keep me up to date , my daughter will be  born soon and i  want to file for this as well .

doing this is faster and cheaper than a I130  correct 2

As a couple of people said, just use the form and don't worry that the date is expired. The Consular Report of Birth Abroad is better in numerous ways compared to the I130 form. With a CRBA your daughter will be a citizen from birth. Your total cost will be less than the initial filing fee for the I130. I believe that time frame varies some from country to country, but it took less than a month, start to finish in Ecuador. Most of that was waiting. We filed the form and scheduled an appointment with the consulate a couple of weeks later. The meeting took a couple of hours with half of that wait time, and they mailed the birth certificate (CRBA) and passport out a couple of weeks after that.

I just submitted my CRBA application 4 days ago. And used the crba form (update august 2019) because thats the form you can download when you open the uscis crba form. Is it okay? Do i have to worry about the expiration thing?
