When resubmitting a status adjustment packet that needed an error correction, do I print out new forms?

Asked over 1 year ago - Rancho Cucamonga, CA

One date on the original form was incorrect; some of the last names on the forms didn't match. The form says to resubmit when errors are corrected and to place the notice with the resubmission packet, but it doesn't say whether new forms are needed or to include the old forms along for reference. Not sure what to do in this case.

    Answered . Typically you redo all of the forms with the corrected info and resubmit with the notice that they sent. However like the other attorney indicated you may want to have an attorney review your papers at the very least to make sure you are on try right track. Cost of an hour or two of consult is definitely worth the hassle of doing it wrong or worst getting denied.

    Answered . Resubmit new forms to be safe. And as others have said, might be good to check in with an immigration attorney in case other parts also need fixing.
