Miami, FL asked in Immigration Law for Florida

Q: While filling I-130 application online the system would not allow me to put a future date for NTA Which is in Aug 2022!.

While I was filling my I-130 application online I came to the question if I have had any removal proceedings so I assumed that I did because of NTA but then in the part where I have to type the place and date of hearing, the system would not allow me to put a future date.

What should I do? Can I answer “NO” since I have not been in an actual hearing yet!

A: That is why we always recommend filing a hard paper form with its copy retained in a file. This way an exact submission is preserved with an ability to input all required data on the federal form.

Additionally, there is a possibility of the USCIS having glitches, flaws, internal errors that will only compound, if not outright compromise your legal needs.
