It's about our I-485 application for my step daughter K-2.

Customer Question
It's about our I-485...

It's about our I-485 application for my step daughter K-2. USCIS mailed letter to our street address and not our mailing address. USPS returned the letter to sender.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you filed any paperwork with the USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) yet?

Yes since July 2017 and case status shows USPS returned the letter to USCIS due to incorrect mailing address.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No, I'm trying to resolve it myself but hard to speak to a uscis officer. USCIS local office keep saying to just wait. getting worried it has been almost sic months. My wife got her green card already since June 2017.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I just need to know what the real status of our i-485 application.

You should call USCIS and once you have an officer on the line, ask for a second tier representative to help you resolve this and figure out where it is. Make it clear that it is a USCIS error and not yours. Speaking to them requires long wait times but it's the only way to speak to them.

Good luck to you and I hope this answer has helped you.

The 1800 uscis number is ***** answered by recording system. I can’t get through an actual person. Is there any number to call a uscis staff?
Immigration Lawyer: Jen Marie, Esq., Immigration Attorney replied 8 months ago

1-***-***-**** You have to choose the option that says you lost your receipt number. That one will take you to an actual person. Then ask them for a 2nd tier representative after explaining the situation.

I hope this helps and hope you can kindly leave a good rating.

My Mom is in the US on a B1/B2 (tourist) visa. She came to visit my wife and I on October 2nd 2016 and her return journey was on March 25th 2017. However in March we decided to extend her stay so we've filed an extension with the USCIS on March 13th 2017 (Form I539sent with supporting documents on that date). It was received by the USCIS on March 16th 2017. Unfortunately, we've received a denial decision citing that the check sent for $290 was incorrect and I came to know that the updated service fee was $370. Apparently, the mail was sent by USCIS on April 3rd via regular first class USPS and it might have arrived on Friday, April 7th as I checked my mail on the 8th and the 6th of April.)Anyhow, coming to main issue, her I-94 expired on April 1st 2017. As per the rejection letter in the mail packet sent by the USCIS, it says as follows"You are invited to resubmit your application package after you have corrected the reasons for rejection. If you have any questions please contact***@******.***.When you resubmit your application, please enclose this letter with your re-submission.Place this letter on top of your application package."My questions -Can I resubmit the extension application, even though her I-94 has expired? If so, can she still stay with us, assuming we would have to notify USCIS of this situation, with some help of an attorney?As the mail (post marked on April 3rd) from the USCIS was sent AFTER her i-94 has expired (April 1st) Should she leave promptly, WITHOUT we attempting any refiling. Note that the USCIS did NOT mention anything about leaving promptly in the rejection letter but asked to reapply. But as the I-94 has expired, what happens to her B2 visa? Does it get cancelled?. So, If she needs to leave, how soon does she needs leave, knowing the mail received date as April 8th?If she needs to leave, we will prepone her return ticket, BUT can we reach out to the USCIS explaining the situation and not to cancel / jeopardize her visa? Or should she reapply for her visa?Sorry for my long description and/or any repetitive questions. Wanted to make sure you have all the information for your decision. Appreciate all the help!Thanks!
