What do you mean by a "guarantee" amount. Does the rejection say anything about an Affidavit of Support?

When the I-485 was filed, what classification did the applicant put as the basis for I-485 filing?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
U1 visa as crime victim and her husband. Both of them are already in US and passed one year to be able qualified for applying I485 for a green card.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
The return letter did not specify to submit 864 Affidavit of Support. Only says "guarantee amount is incomplete and incorrect.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
in the 485 application, she did submit her Tax Return in ordr to prove her physical presence in USA for the last 3 years.

Is there any way that you can scan and attach the document you are referring to?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
just one sentence: the application "has an incorrect or incomplete guarantee amount". and asking we can resubmit the whole package after "the deficiency has been corrected. "
Immigration Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

OK, tell me how much the check was for and to whom it was written.

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
according to USCIS request: $1225 for each applicant, including fingerprint fees. It should be correct amount.
Immigration Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

Who did you make the check out to?

Ask Your Own Immigration Law Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Department of Homeland Security. Sorry.
Immigration Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

OK, technically, it should be "US Department of Homeland Security," but the way you've written it, it, that should not be a basis for rejections.

Were there sufficient funds int he account? And was the check stale? What is the date on the check and the date of submission?
