I got the receipt notice.What is the grace period USCISallow for using old edition?I got the receipt notice, does it mean that it is accepted?

The time frame for accepting the old editions are specifically stated by USCIS. The 2016 editions are accepted until February 21, 2017.

If your Attorney used the old forms, you may receive a notice to refile the applications. However, if you do not receive any additional notice, that means that the old forms have been accepted.

Goodluck with your case,

A positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
