While some areas of the country are beginning to relax the restrictions on public gatherings and activities imposed because of the coronavirus pandemic, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is continuing to enforce its social distancing policies for the foreseeable future. All in-person immigrant services were suspended on March 18, 2020. These restrictions will continue until June 4, which is when USCIS plans to reopen for in-person interviews and appointments.
Immigrants Left in Limbo
For immigrants who are waiting for visa approvals, extension of status or decisions on their citizenship applications, the June 4th date will represent the first chance in several months to touch base with USCIS on these matters. Working with a qualified and experienced Kendall immigration lawyer can provide added peace of mind for immigrants and their families during this difficult time. Your Kendall or Miami immigration lawyer will provide you with the representation and support you need to pursue your goals in the immigration system.
Services Offered by USCIS
The closure of USCIS offices has had an impact on a wide range of immigration activities, including the following:
- Visas for family-based immigration
- Temporary work permits and green cards
- Extensions of status for those already in the United States
- Adoptions of children from foreign countries by U.S. citizens
- E-verification of employment eligibility
- Citizenship applications and processes
By enlisting the help of a Kendall immigration lawyer, you and your family can pick up these processes where you left off before the pandemic closed down USCIS offices. This will ensure that you keep your place in line and that your visa or citizenship applications are processed as quickly as possible after offices reopen later this year.
