Default AP - $80 Biometric Fee refund?

Hello All,

I recently(03/31/08) e-filed my AP(Self-File) and am still awaiting approval. One mistake i did was, along with the supporting documentation that i mailed to the USICS, i also included $80 Biometric fee check. USCIS has already cashed this $80 check on 4/10/08.

However, based on some research on this boards and other places, it looks like $80 fee is only applicable to Refugee and Re-entry permit cases NOT advanced parole case. Now since i overpaid USCIS, i like to know if there is a way to request refund of the $80 fee. Since i e-filed AP myself i cannot approach my attorney for help here.

PS: I wont be requesting refund till i get my AP approved..want to play it safe here!!!!

Was it same check or different? If overpaid, they may refuse application. I think, you have to wait and see.

Usually USCIS does not refund money after encashing checks. Please update us, what is happening at the end.

Update: I got my AP approved in 27 days after efiling from Nebraska. Now since i got my AP in hand, My next plan is to request refund of the $80 fee as no AP biometric was scheduled for me, I will keep you all posted
