Q: What evidence should my lawyers provide?
My lawyers accidentally issued the payment fee check incorrectly, which led to my extension petition rejection by the USCIS.
Because my I-94 expired before I departed from the US, I overstayed my visa even though my lawyers intended to file the extension before the I-94 expiration date.
What document should they provide me with so I can show evidence that my overstay wasn’t my fault?
- The document the USCIS sent to them stating that the chosen fee was not correct? Should it contain my personal information?
- If the lawyers wrote an explanation letter with all the details, would it be enough for the immigration and consular officers?
- I have a scanned copy of the filing, including the FedEx delivery. Because the FedEx delivery doesn’t show my personal information, I think this scanned copy would not work, would it?
Thank you very much for your help!
