e-file AP(i-131) Need help!
 
Hi all:

I have finished entering details in the efiled I-131 application. but on completion I am getting the following notes
---------------------------------
Note: There are still required fields not completed on the following forms:

I-131 -Primary FIler

Note:There are still suggested fields not completed on the following forms:

I-131 - Primary filer

I-131 - Secondary filer
--------------------------

i think the suggested fields notes are coming because of the middle initial(we both do not have middle initial)

But I DO NOT understand why the notes regarding required fields are coming for the primary filer. Any ideas? ( what required fields I would have left out.. forms were very similar for both primary filer and secondary filer)

Thanks a lot

Unable certify AP efile form
 
I am getting the following error when I certify the form. I dont see any errors. Except that there is no middle initial. I did search the forums (may be not good enough), but did not find a solution to this problem. Please suggest. Thanks!!


Fix Errors
You have attempted to certify an application that is not complete or has errors. It is required that all forms must be complete and have no errors in order to complete the application process.
Please select the Fix Errors button to return to the Form Checklist page for a listing of the forms that have errors. Any form that is incomplete or has errors will be shown in the alert section at the top of the page. Select the link for that form from the form checklist to fix the errors for that form.

If it is a warning, you can ignore and continue to certify
 
hello:

While you are checking the form, you will notice that the error about the middle initial is a Warning only about a suggested field. They will use the term "SUGGESTED Fields" for the middle initial.. like i said in my original thread (See my first post in this thread)

if you notice any errors about "Required fields".. do not CERTIFY.. you will have to go through the form again and make sure you entered everything.



Remember I am only a layman.. so make sure you double check with others.

Thanks

Go over the application once again, and see if any columns had been missed out.
The AP form itself is a relatively easy one, with cautions for missing middle initials.
But then the middle initial is not mandatory, although the caution keeps popping up.

If you are still not able to locate and fix the problem, trying starting afresh.

Best of luck!!

That is the same exact problem i faced for both the primary and the dependent application. Good you found it! those are the required fields.

Answers below..
1. Pick the service center where your I-485 is currently. That is a tricky question.. right now most I-485 applications are either in Nebraska or Texas.. I am not sure.. You will have to probe this further.

2. NO

3. NO

hope it helps..

"Pick the service center where your I-485 is currently."
 
Thanks for your reply.

How did you find out what to answer for "Pick the service center where your I-485 is currently."

I have 2 options -

(a) Since the 485 receipt number starts with "WAC" and I found in this forum that WAC stands for 'California Service Center' I can pick "USCIS California Service Center"

(b) The current online status for the 485 is - "On March XX, 2009, we received your response to our request for evidence. This case is being processed at our NEBRASKA SERVICE CENTER location....." and so I can pick "USCIS Nebraska Service Center"

or should i pick some Field Office? - I have no idea what that means.

Thanks everyone, for reading my questions, and caring to post a reply.

I-485 originally applied with Nebraska
 
Hi:

My application has always been with Nebraska service center from the beginning.. I have always used Nebraska to file/renew my EADs, advance parole..

I think you should put down the service center you used for renewing your previous advance paroles and EADs? ..

The best thing to do is to ask your lawyer or other people who have also originally filed in California Service center.. about what they did.

Sorry I could not be of any more help!.. wish you good luck.

Dont think you need to think too much about it.
If you know where your petition is pending, fill in those details even if it had been received by another center (like California, etc.). Your 797 would tell you where it was received.
And you would have been informed, had it been transferred anywhere else.
Basically, they are trying to relate the AP petition to the 485, since the former became possible only due to the latter.
As a matter of abundant caution, talk to your lawyer too.

Attorney says "California Service Center"
 
I checked with my attorney and the answer I got was "California Service Center" - I guess that is what i should go with...
