After the 60-day period, we will address public comments and publish the required 30-day notice in the Federal Register. We will issue the final revised Form I-485 once the Office of Management and Budget approves the form.

You may continue to use the current version of Form I-485 (edition date: 10/05/15) until further notice.

We remind the public to avoid immigration scams by:

  • Using the official USCIS website for Form I-485 information;
  • Downloading forms for free; and
  • Verifying that the person providing legal services and advice is authorized to do so.
