A couple of months ago, we wrote about USCIS slowly making the transition to electronic based filings. On May 22, 2012, USCIS launched the ELIS program. As of now, individuals who establish an ELIS account may file Form I-539, Application to Change/Extend Status online. There hasn't been much feedback yet, since the program just started. However, electronic filing will presumably eliminate delays caused by mail and expedite processing. Whether people like it or not, the government is slowly integrating more technology into the filing process. Individuals must make an effort to become familiar with the technology or at least entrust their cases to those who are.
