Great Twitter thread explaining the whole situation.

 

I wonder what will happen to you petitions without I-944s, filed in the last few weeks. It will be interesting to see if those petitions continue to be exempt from the I-944 or an RFE is issued to submit the I-944.

I don't consider Twitter a reliable source for anything but extreme political opinions.......Having said that, I don't think they will require the I-944 for those applications submitted during the period of the ruling.

Oh no. I am sending it in today without the I-944. Does this mean I'm likely going to get RFE? 😳

I think you should take a screenshot of USCIS website about I944 (link) and include that in your packet. As of today, I944 is not needed. So you should be good.

Back in August, i sent our package for the third time, The last rejection was due to the missing 944 but since they had taken that requirement away. I was able to submit it without it this time. I printed the page where it said it was not required. Today I saw a pending Charge of the 485 hit my credit. So far from all rejections, I never saw a pending charge. So this seem like positive news.

If you don't mind me asking, when did USCIS received your package?

@Paul & Mary

 

  1. I know I-944 is currently not required but
  2. I-485 has not been updated to reflect the same.

 

Now with those two points in mind, what is your advise on answering question 61? I know people are sending screenshots of USCIS page along with application. However, are they answering YES to question 61 below, which will force you to explain or answering NO and still filing out the I-944 form?

Or answering NO and just providing the screenshot baring the implementation of such?

 

P/S - Sorry for tagging you twice. I timed out on my editing
