Whenever you send a form to USCIS, make sure to check the required form version on the day that you postmark the application. Likewise, whenever you submit fee to USCIS, make sure to the check the required fee on the day that you postmark the fee. Periodically USCIS changes form versions and sometimes eliminates earlier versions from being accepted. If you submit a form that is outdated or an incorrect fee, USCIS will almost always return the application and fee to you. Generally, you can refile the form and fee with the corrected version or fee. If you must file a form by a specific deadline, however, USCIS may not forgive a late form or fee that is the result of you having originally submitted the incorrect form version or fee.
