  1. Hello All, I have really screwed up and I am trying to understand what will happen from here. My husband has come to the US on a K1, we got married and sent off our AOS. Long story short, when they received our AOS, the filing fee check had bounced a few times. I'm sure they are currently in the process of sending our packet back to us, and we will refile once it is returned and assure that the next check we send will not bounce. Here is our issue: The point to which our AOS packet is returned to us and sent back may overlap with the 90 days the I-94 allows him to be here lawfully. I believe he becomes "Out Of Status" or something to that effect. My question is what happens in that overlap between when the 90 days expire and the AOS is received again? Worst case scenario is that overlap is 1-2 weeks based on processing times. He is lawfully abiding by the rest of the terms of the I-94/K1 visa. Will that overlap time count against him? Is there anything else we will need to include in the packet we return since the time has overlapped? I have scoured many other forum posts to this but specific advice would be helpful. Thanks
  2. Hello! I submitted an AOS concurrent filing for myself and my husband (I am a citizen and he is the one in AOS). We submitted I-130, 485, 765, & 864, as well as all the supporting documentation and evidence, and the g-1450 form for credit card transactions to pay. I got a bank statement this morning for the approved 485 fee, and realized something was wrong when I didnt see a bank transaction for my 130. I went back and checked my records and realized in a very boneheaded moment, I accidentally wrote the expiration date incorrectly for my credit card on the form. STUPID. I tried to call the bank and have them approve the transaction anyways, no luck. Tried calling USCIS to give them the correct date, nope. So now I've accepted that application will be rejected and returned for refiling. Based on that, I have three questions for anyone who has been in similar situations. 1. How long will it take USCIS to return my application to me? It is June 6th today and my husbands visa will expire on July 3, so I am worried I will not get it back in time if the process takes forever. (sub question- if it does take to long and his visa does expire, does that change his eligibility? He is in the states on an OPT extension of an F1 student visa) 2. Will they return my entire package, or just my 130 that had the incorrect payment? 3. If they DO send the entire package back, will we be refunded the money they took out for the 485, will we have to pay for the 485 AGAIN when we resubmit it, or do I just send it back WITHOUT an additional payment since they took the payment for the 485 the first time? REALLY STRESSED HERE! Any information is so helpful. Like many of you, I love the family member I am petitioning for and just want this all to be taken care of.
  3. Hi Everyone! Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I am preparing i-130 and i-485 and I am a beneficiary. While I am preparing filing fees for these two forms, I had a quick question on the personal check. For the form i-130, should I submit the personal check under petitioner's name? I've looked into USCIS page and searched Visa Journey, but could not answer this question.. Currently, I am planning to write two checks (i-130 and i-485) under my name. (my personal check which has my name only). Could anyone share the opinion about this? Thanks a lot
