In response to the Coronavirus, the USCIS has made several adjustments to handling certain types of cases. The change in guidelines is in an effort to protect its workforce and staff.
Certain Late Filings
The receipt date of the notice must be between March 1 and May 1. If the receipt date is between those two dates, then the deadline to submit a response is extended 60 days after the deadline date that is indicated in the notice. This allows additional time to properly prepare your submissions in the following cases handled by the USCIS:
- Notice of Intent to Revoke
- Request for Evidence
- Notice of Intent to Deny
- Notice of Appeal or Motion
- Regional Investment Center submissions
- Notice of Intent to Terminate
These types of submissions require very careful attention. You should ensure your case is comprehensive and complete. A compelling submission is far more important in most cases than a quick and sloppy submission.
The USCIS will reuse previously submitted biometrics in order to process Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization.
