Reminder: Do Not Use the Old I-693 Medicals

On Behalf of | Feb 27, 2012 | Firm News |

Our office recently blogged about the new medical forms I-693. It is extremely important that applicants for adjustment of status remember to remind their doctors to use the new form. USCIS has already in some cases issued a Request for More Evidence because physicians are not completing the new forms. While this is not necessarily fatal to the case, it nevertheless does delay an adjustment of status application, which under normal processing can take three months (at least for a family based case in this district). This is the last thing anyone wants and can be easily avoided if applicants remind their doctors (and/or the staff) to use the new updated forms. Our office cannot necessarily tell because we are provided with the sealed envelopes.
