My I-485 was filed in December 2019. I just got an RFE saying that I need to submit an updated form I-485 because the one submitted has expired. Has anyone received this request before? I also got laid off from Deloitte so I don’t have any attorney to help me on this. Should I wait until I get a new job so they can help me file the I-485 and supplement J (for portability) together? TIA!

Just from reading the application, it looks like I can fill this one out myself. Would it be a problem not having an attorney fill this out?

Don’t you need an employer until you get your GC? Can you still continue this process after lay-off?

Yeah but I have an EAD card so I have more than 60 days worst case. It’s just annoying how incompetent the lawyers were not knowing that they used an expired form.

The I485 is based on your employment with Deloitte via the approved I140, don’t think you can file a revised I485 if you are no longer with Deloitte. Also odd that the form for a December filing is expired, the most recent form is date 10/15/19 and the Lawyers would have checked that before filing? Any chance that Deloitte withdrew the I485 after lay-off resulting in the RFE. I suggest spending the $$$ and talking to an immigration lawyer.

My I-485 has been pending for 180 days so don’t think they can withdraw it?

I don’t think you can file the new I-485 yourself. That could create an issue if you later file the J supplement from an employer. You should talk with an immigration lawyer to confirm.

I think only Deloitte’s lawyers can fix it and I’ve contacted them. I’m not sure if they’re going to do that for me. I just don’t want to restart the process again. That’d suck since it wasn’t my fault.
