Filing Applications to USCIS
Filing an application to United State Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is quite a challenging process. USCIS is the main U.S. government organization that is occupied with immigrants, and this organization is very demanding concerning the applications that immigrants file to it. If you want to file an application to USCIS, it’s best to follow our recommendations.
Know Your Immigration Form
USCIS provides dozens of application forms on their website, for example, the Application for Naturalization, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, Petition for Alien Relative (Form I-130), and many others.
Depending on what you want USCIS to do, you have to fill out the correct form. If you want to get a green card, you cannot apply for naturalization and vice versa. First, USCIS will reject your form if you file an incorrect application. Second, USCIS will not return the money that you paid for processing the application. And if you file the correct application next time, you will be forced to pay again.
Provide Only Correct Information on Your Immigration Form
The recommendation to file the application form with the correct data seem too obvious. We still strongly advise against using false data in your application form. Even if you made an honest mistake, USCIS may not only reject your application but also deny you in applying again. In other words, if you provided incorrect data in Application for Naturalization (Form N-400), USCIS may reject your corrected application, and you will not be able to naturalize.
Contact an Immigration Lawyer or Attorney
If you believe that USCIS may reject your application, it is best for you to contact an immigration lawyer or attorney. They will help you decide whether you can apply and how you should apply the form. They can also present in the court if you filed a complaint against USCIS or if USCIS filed a suit against you.
Consult the Immigration Forms Instructions
USCIS provides a very detailed instruction for every form that they can process. You should download the instruction, attentively study it, consult a lawyer if you are not sure about certain points in the application immigration form, and only after that you can fill out the form. Remember to fill out the entire form as requested by instructions. If you leave any field blank that USCIS requires you to fill out, then your application will be rejected. Using an instruction for your immigration form will help you clarify what information you should provide.
Prepare Your Evidence for the Immigration Form
USCIS is very demanding for immigrants who apply the form for naturalization or to change the immigration status (usually this means you want to obtain a green card). Therefore, in order to ensure that your application will be accepted, it is very important for you to prepare evidence to support any forms for immigration. Such evidence as photographs, videos, legal documents from your work, plane tickets, and many other documents can prove your intentions so USCIS will approve your application.
Be Aware of Any Policy Updates
The U.S. laws with regard to immigration change from time to time. It is very important to check the information about the immigration form and the new rules before you apply it and pay for it. USCIS may change the filing fee, the place where you should send the application, re-work the application form completely, or replace the application form with another form. And if you miss out any updates, USCIS will reject your old application. It is worth mentioning that USCIS usually accepts the old application forms for several months before they start rejecting them.
