While filing for my wife's G-325A form, her last name was filled in first name and first name as last name. We got our FP notice yesterday and thats when I went back and reviewed all the forms I filed. I was wondering if any of you know what can be done so that an honest mistake can be corrected?

Any input appreciated. I understand it is for information purpose only and not many of us are attorneys, so no disclosure required :)

Consult with you Attorney first, as this is a very rare scenario for any one to answer in the forum. Also see if you can get this addresses when you go for the actual FP, Try to carry all the documents, Passport, Driver's License, etc and the copy of the I-485/ I-765 etc where you have the correct names.

Attorney is the best source of information in this scenario. Also call USCIS and request them what needs to be done in this case. Also you can get a InfoPASS appointment and get this corrected.

Question:Name misspelled on I-485 NOA

Yesterday we recieved 3 NOAs (for 130, 485, and 131) from USCIS, and unfortunately, most important (I-485) NOA misspelled my last name (while two other NOAs not). Nothing was misspelled on my application - I checked my copy.

On the NOA, USCIS wrote in bold: Please notify us immediately if any of the above is incorrect. Well, my last name is incorrect (twice). Unfortunately, USCIS didn't say how exactly I should notify them immediately.

So, what is the best way to correct this? Infopass? Or any good phone/fax numbers or email? We are in San Francisco.

Thank you.

Answer Yes, you can do it through INFOPASS or you can wait until your fingerprinting appointment which will happen shortly and do it at that time

An attorney has suggested them to take an infopass appt and I suggest you do the same

Thank you, since it was something where the form was wrong, I have asked my attorney to respond, will post what he suggests, I just feel terrible that the onus is on us for not checking that USCIS. After all these years of wait, how can I over look this?

Reviewed all forms today. Attorney said if 485 form is correct, not to worry, go for FP and show all your proof.. but then I found out 485 form was wrong too, so waiting to hear from him.

This is true since you haven't messed up and the USCIS did, in my case, the form that was filed had wrong information. There is no information in USCIS that tells us how we can correct it.

I am not sure if I am reading this right or not, go this page

http://www.imminfo.com/resources/cis-sop-aos/3-7.html

and read the first para. It says G-325A has to be processed only if the applicant has entered the US in non immigrant status less than one year prior to current calendar date of review.

So any one who has entered US before (07/02/07) will have their G-325A trashed? I was under the impression that USCIS does use the biographic information to check with local law enforcement for the the past 5 years as stated in the G-325A. Any ideas?

nixstorI don't have any input on that, my attorney told me he is busy, he has other applications that flood his office, even if he writes a letter, the wont do anything in USCIS, go for FP and explain to them the situation. He also said I should have looked at it! bummer

Seahawks,

Your lawyer is correct in saying that the USCIS will most likely not fix the problem by just writing to them.

I have been through this stupidity with the I-140 petition. While the case was pending, we found out that there was an error in the application form. We notified the USCIS but they still sent the approval notice with the first and last names interchanged. We wrote again, but they responded saying that it was not a USCIS error, the name of the beneficiary on the approval notice appears exactly as it is on the application form (and what about the supporting documents, you wonder!). So, they asked us to file an amended application.

We filed the I-140 again, with all the supporting documents, all the fees, etc. and got it approved.

The USCIS will not fix an error, that you have made, on their dime. Simply writing letters is not going to work - they probably want you to file an "Amended Petition". This is what should have been done in my case when we found the mistake; but we just kept writing letters.

You should call the USCIS and ask to speak to an expert who can tell you exactly what needs to be done. Also, when the USCIS representative answers the phone, they give you their identification number - take it down for future reference.

All the best

Thank you for your input, do you know where I should call, if there is a number and so on? There is absolutely no information on any place on fixing 485 form.

I just called the 1-800 number on their website, but your lawyer may know someone in person at the USCIS.

Guys,

Can some read the SOP in the above quote and figure out what they are trying to say?

I read it and it does mention that if you came prior to an year from filing, your G-325A does not count. I wonder why that is because Finger printing is triggered by G-325A was what I thought and its a form with 3 copies so to speak so I thought it goes to 3 different offices, who knows how it works.. anyways here is what I am doing for now..
Wait until my attorney gets back to me
Go for the FP and probably explain to them and see if anything can be done.
Wrote to my district congressman's immigration specialist who I had met before while campaigning for IV goals on CIR. Well I won't sweat it out, will see what happens I guess.
