Do I need to resend a new I-693 after the documents got returned back to me from USCIS?

Irving, TX |

I don't know how I did that but I forgot to me include a check with my 485 application to USCIS. They sent all my documents back to me with Form-i-797C, Notice of Action. I noticed that USCIS opened the sealed envelope for I-693 prepared by my doctor. Now, when I resend 485 with the check included, do I need to resend a new sealed I-693 or the returned open envelope for I-693 that I received from USCIS work? Thank you!

  1. Generally, if you only need to send the filing fee, you should be okay with the original I-693.

    Alexus P. Sham-The above information is only general in nature and does not constitute legal advice. It does not create an attorney-client relationship.


  2. I agree. You could also make an infopass appointment with USCIS or give them a call to verify. But if you correct the problem that they identified, that should be enough.


  3. No. You need to resubmit the entire package with the fees this time.
