Another Chance to File I-485 after Rejection

Great news for those whose I-485s were rejected after many months of waiting caused by delays at USCIS and USPS postal.

USCIS has been sending invitations to some applicants to re-file after their previously filed I-485s (filed between 10/01/2020 and 12/31/2020) were rejected due to incorrect responses to Item Numbers 9.a, 9.b, 9.c, or 10. Below is a sample invitation notice to refile.

Note that because USCIS is no longer following the public charge rule, the Form I-944 and supporting documents should not be included with the re-filed I-485. Also, note that if you have already refiled prior to receiving the invitation, you do not need to re-file again. No further action is needed.
