Rejection Notice

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I received a rejection notice to all forms I submitted including I-485 & I-130 because I used an older version of the I-130. Did this happen to anyone before? If so? 

 

1- how do you resubmit? Do i resubmit everything i submitted before again with uscis marks& stamped check but with an updated I-130 form or do i submit new forms and new everything & new checks? 

 

2- did this cause a significant delay for any? Or just a small delay?

Submit new forms.  Did they take the payment?  No way to know how much of a delay it will cause.

Yes; updated I-130 form instead of the old I-130 form. I assume you used either the 07/15/19 or 12/13/17 editions of the I-485. Do it quickly before Oct. 15; on that date the filing process changes: https://www.uscis.gov/i-485

A rejection, although it comes as shocking blow, can be a good thing at times. They return the entire packet to you and don't charge you the money. It's as if they didn't even accept it (compare that with if they accept it and cash your check).

Consider it an opportunity to relay the information from the old I-485 that you just submitted to the newer version. As I've done in the past, quite literally, taken the old form and changed it up. Everything else (the proof, medical, I-864, etc.) can remain the same granted none of that is at fault.

Hope this helps, good luck with the next submission.

Do you think you are the first?


YMMV
