Our COVID-19 Policy

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, our team is complying with the Shelter-in-Place order by having our members work from home. We are taking all necessary steps and precautions to ensure both the safety of our team and the success of your cases. Through these efforts, we can guarantee that we stay fully operational during this period so that your cases are taken care of with our normal efficiency. You can reach out to us by phone and email with any questions or concerns. USCIS COVID-19 Updates Here are a few most recent updates from the USCIS in reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • USCIS In-Person Services Suspended. USCIS has suspended routine in-person services until at least April 1, 2020 to help slow the spread of COVID-19. USCIS continues to operate in functions that do not involve contact with the public.

  • Premium Processing for I-129 and I-140 Suspended. USCIS has suspended premium processing services for all I-129 and I-140 petitions effective March 20, 2020. This suspension is expected to stay in effect as long as COVID-19 is active. USCIS will make announcement when it reinstates premium processing.

  • USCIS Increases Flexibility in Submitting Signatures. For submissions dated March 21, 2020, and beyond, USCIS allows reproduced original signatures for submissions. Forms that require original “wet” signatures now are acceptable if they are scanned/photocopied/faxed copies of the original documents with handwritten signatures. This is a temporary change only applies to signatures.

Given the uncertain nature of the COVID-19 crisis, there may be any number of changes in the upcoming weeks. We are committed to bringing you the highest quality of service that you expect of our team and to keep you up-to-date on important changes related to immigration. Please reach out to us at any time for legal assistance. Stay healthy and safe!
