My lawyer filed an Advanced Parole application for my wife at the same time as applying for her greencard. We received the approved Advanced Parole document but it included a spelling mistake in the middle-initial field. The USCIS actually attempted to spell all 4 letters of her middle name and managed to get 2 of those letters wrong!
Once we noticed the error, we informed our lawyer. He called the USCIS and was told that we would receive a corrected AP within 30 days. 30 days later we hadn't received anything so our lawyer called again and was told this time to send a letter requesting the correction. He sent the letter and still we recevied nothing. I then asked the lawyer to re-file the Advanced Parole application since this is what the USCIS had advised me to do. The USCIS also advised me that we need not submit the fee so long as we can prove that the USCIS is at fault.
Last week my lawyer re-filed the AP application along with evidence of the USCIS mistake and a cover letter indicating why we have not included payment. It appears as though the USCIS has ignored the cover letter since we received a rejection notice this week saying that we did not pay the fee.
We have been fighting this for 3 months now and do not know what to do. I personally re-filed the advanced parole application today, again with a cover letter and without payment. I strongly suspect that it will be rejected again. I find it very frustrating that it is costing us so much money & time to try to get the USCIS to fix their mistake.
We have also booked an InfoPass appointment as a last resort to see if a face-to-face meeting can get the issue resolved.
Please can someone let me know how they have resolved a similar problem?
