Filing an immigration application, petition, or request with USCIS can be a daunting task –– especially when some cases require hundreds of pages of forms and evidence!
One of the easiest ways to have your case denied is to make mistakes on the original submission. USCIS has the discretion to deny any submission that is improperly filed without first requesting additional or missing documents. To make matters worse, they usually don't return the filing fee!
Additionally, there is the risk of applications getting lost in the mail or returned for some other reason. In order to avoid a returned or denied submission packet, it is important to follow USCIS's instructions very closely. Check out our tips to hep avoid common mistakes.
