Buckle up!


April 2017: applied for AOS

Sept 2017: GC interview

Sept 17 to June 2019: radio silence


June 11 2019: updated status online 485 denied

         Need to wait for denial letter with details              before taking action should be 2 weeks

June 25: no letter, filed inquiry should hear by               July 28

July 28: no letter called USCIS told us we'd get               within 30 days   

Sept 3: letter comes but it's not a denial letter 

           they resent orig 485 receipt

Sept 10: filed FOIA to get denial letter

Sept 28: finally got denial letter through FOIA                application. 


Apparently the reason for denial was an RFE in may 2019 that we didnt respond to. the issue is we never got an RFE in the mail i notice they have the wrong address in the header of denial letter which is why we didn't get that either assuming the RFE went to that adress also. We have gotten several corespondence letters via USPS including his work permit and receipts at our current address so i have no idea why only those 2 things went to the old address. So the question is do i file a new 485 or a motion to reopen? Work permit is set to expire 10/28 and im lost

A motion to reopen  can be difficult and potentially expensive.  Many folks will recommend filing a new AOS.


Good Luck
