How a Congressional Inquiry Can Help
If you and your legal representatives successfully make contact with a congressional office willing to help, you will need to provide all of the details relevant to your case. This includes copies of all documentation involving communications with USCIS thus far and other attempts to correct the issue. We can help you gather this evidence and submit the necessary files to the congressional office.
Once this documentation has been received and reviewed, a congressional office can send their written inquiry to USCIS requesting an update on your situation. USCIS policy dictates that the agency acknowledge receipt of the inquiry with some form of preliminary response within 5 days. They then have 30 days from the submission date to deliver a more thorough response.
Should your problem be an emergency or especially time-sensitive, a congressional office can also choose to call USCIS directly. In these situations, a response can often be procured by the next business day.
The bottom line is an official congressional inquiry can compel USCIS to expediently respond if you have been stonewalled or are struggling to make any meaningful progress. The agency will be forced to provide some sort of update to your case, and the process can even hasten the approval of visas in some situations.
