Q: Help! I forgot to fill out a part on the I-130 petition for my husband

I filled out the application completely and re-read multiples times before mailing the package last week. But I just looked at the pdf application for form I-130 and I might have forgotten to fill out a part. It's part 4, Item 46a; "He or She arrived as a (class of admission): ... We are filling all the files concurrently and this information is available on other forms I-485 and I765. His class of admission is also listed on the I-94 copy we included in the package.

Will it be a problem that I forgot to put down that Information on form I-130? Could the application get denied?

A: Did you also fill out an I-130a? Errors on these applications can lead to delay or denial. That is why it is best to consult with an experienced immigration attorney prior to filing.
