AOS 485 Package Rejected
5:41 pm August 7, 2020



Read 305 Times

Hello everyone!

I submitted the AOS package(s) for both my parents on July 16th. I utilized the credit card authorization forms (a separate authorization form is required for I-130 and I-485 per the instructions).

Yesterday, my dad called me because he just got a large package in the mail with a rejection letter from USCIS. The letter clearly states that it is in reference to form I-485, and that the package has been rejected due to an improperly filled out credit card authorization form, or because the card was declined. I'm a bit confused because I verified the forms multiple times and even called my debit card company to let them know of the upcoming charges. It's water under the bridge now I guess!

I do have a question for those of you who may have had this issue before. I submtitted: I-130, I-485, I-864, I-944, and I-765 together. My dad sent me a photo of the letter, which states that "you will be notified separately about any other case you may have filed". I asked my dad to check to verify that all forms were returned, but all the prongs were taken out of my files, meaning they were all jumbled up and he wasn't able to tell me what was returned. In your experience, are ALL files in the package returned? Or would this package only include the I-485? I'm hoping they usually return everything, since it would make it easier to file again. In addition, it would make no sense to NOT return I-765, as it would get rejected without an underlying petition. In addition, no money has been taken from my account for the other form submitted (I-130). Have any of you had any familiar experiences?

My parents live about 8 hours away, so I won't be able to drive there for at least a week, but I'm just trying to figure out whether the package was FULLY returned, or if I need to wait a few weeks to see if any other portions of hte package are left to be returned.

Expediting question...

Hello everyone. How everyone is doing well during these unprecedented times. I do have a question to ask.
I was wondering if my husband will qualify for expediting his interview. He is supposed to interview in Ciudad Juarez, our cc was exactly 1 year ago this month and we have yet to received any type of notice, And with this pandemic it has delayed many things for us and many.
Now, My husband was recently diagnosed with a rare kidney disease, I would love to see if this will expedite him to get his interview sooner as he s closely monitoring by his specialist.

Please let me know your thoughts

thanks in advance.

Public Charge Rule Final Rule (Good news for filers on or after July 29)

Hey Guys,

So I was reading this: https://www.uscis.gov/green-card/green-card-processes-and-procedures/public-charge/injunction-of-the-inadmissibility-on-public-charge-grounds-final-rule


As long as the July 29, 2020, SDNY decision is in effect, USCIS will apply the 1999 public charge guidance that was in place before the Public Charge Rule was implemented on Feb. 24, 2020 to the adjudication of any application for adjustment of status on or after July 29, 2020. In addition, USCIS will adjudicate any application or petition for extension of nonimmigrant stay or change of nonimmigrant status on or after July 29, 2020, consistent with regulations in place before the Public Charge Rule was implemented; in other words, we will not apply the public benefit condition.

For applications and petitions that USCIS adjudicates on or after July 29, 2020, pursuant to the SDNY injunction, USCIS will not consider any information provided by an applicant or petitioner that relates to the Public Charge Rule, including information provided on the Form I-944, or information on the receipt of public benefits in Part 5 on Form I-539, Part 3 on Form I-539A or Part 6 on Form I-129. Applicants and petitioners whose applications or petitions are postmarked on or after July 29, 2020, should not include the Form I-944 or provide information about the receipt of public benefits on Form I-485, Form I-129, or Form I-539/I-539A.

So basically anyone who files on or after July 29, 2020, will still have to file an I-944 but USCIS will anything related to the public charge rule: https://www.uscis.gov/news/public-charge-fact-sheet so essentially ignoring the I-944 I guess.

Maybe others can give their opinion. So basically August filers will not be subject to the same scrutiny as prior filers. Also, this is only in effect as long as the SDNY decision is in effect so I would get your applications in quick as this can always change.

So for anyone filing the I-1485 on or after July 29, 2020, you do not have to file the I-944

Question about adding a joint sponsor after submitting documents
6:30 pm July 31, 2020

Hello everyone, my husband (who is in Mexico) and I filled out the Affidavit of Support using my salary and submitted all of the documentation in May. We're currently waiting for an appointment but unfortunately the consulate in Ciudad Juarez hasn't fully re-opened yet. We've been considering the idea of me moving to Mexico with him for the time being but we would require a joint sponsor. Does anyone know if it's possible to edit the affidavit of support at this point? Thanks in advance!

Final Rule fee changes effective October 2, 2020

Hey Guys,

So it looks like a Final rule was posted for the fee changes and the fees can be found in the following PDF and this news announcement https://www.uscis.gov/news/news-releases/uscis-adjusts-fees-to-help-meet-operational-needs :


Pages 13 - 17 have a table which shows the current fees and the new fees as well as the percent change.

the I-485 will be going from $1,140 down to $1,130

the I-130 will go from $535 to $550 for online filing or $560 for paper filing. So cheaper if you file the form online vs on paper.

Those who are looking to remove conditions might want to consider getting this done by October 2:

I-751 Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence is going from $595 to $760

Check out the full table to see the fee increases/decreases for all immigration forms.

This final rule is effective Oct. 2, 2020. Any application, petition, or request postmarked on or after this date must include payment of the new, correct fees established by this final rule.
