Inquiries, NOIDs, RFEs

The daily practice of immigration law is not limited to just filing cases or appearing at interviews or Immigration Court. Our office routinely handles general immigration matters including case status inquiries; responding to Requests for Evidence (RFEs) and Notices of Intent to Deny (NOID); and securing information under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.

If you have filed an immigration case yourself and received a Request for Evidence or Notice of Intent to Deny, your case may be in jeopardy. The Request for Evidence generally means that there is insufficient documentation or missing evidence that needs to be furnished before your case can be approved. A Notice of Intent to Deny is a preliminary determination by the USCIS that you have not established eligibility for the benefit requested, and the agency plans on denying your case unless you are able to rebut the allegations. It is absolutely critical that your response properly address any alleged deficiencies within the allotted time frame (generally, 30 days for Form I-539 queries and NOIDs, and 84 days for other form types; it is crucial that you read the deadlines in the notice carefully). Our office can assist you in speedily determining what additional evidence and documentation may be legally relevant and sufficient to resolve the matter. Depending on your needs, we may also assume representation and prepare a formal response on your behalf.

If your case has already been assigned locally, we may be able to conduct an attorney inquiry at the Federal Building in Newark, or the Sub-Office in Mount Laurel, to speak directly with the officer adjudicating your case. In many instances, we have been able to get the case back on track and processing again. On the other hand, if there is a problem or deficiency, we can advocate on your behalf to address the issue.

We also assist individuals in securing a copy of their immigration file through the Freedom of Information Act, and thoroughly reviewing it with them so that they have an informed understanding of their immigration status and options. This can be particularly useful for a number of different situations, such as when a person may not know whether he or she has already been deported, or what types of applications may have been filed in his/her name in the past. Only after knowing a person’s full immigration history can that person intelligently assess the prospects and viability of a future application.
