Immigration Relief

The unpredictability of life has a way of challenging our preparedness. Be it natural disasters like hurricanes or wildfires, unforeseen health crises like COVID, or any other unprecedented event – the domino effect it might have on your immigration status can be unsettling. If your USCIS application, petition, or immigration request has been affected by such circumstances, USCIS may be able to assist.

How Can USCIS Assist?

USCIS, recognizing the vulnerabilities of applicants in the wake of unforeseen events, exercises discretion to offer the following measures:

  1. Seek Assistance: You can directly reach out to the USCIS Contact Center at 800-375-5283. For those with disabilities, assistance is available at (TTY) 800-767-1833 or (VRS) 877-709-5797.
  2. Documentation: When reaching out, elucidate how the unforeseen event has impacted you. Say you lost all evidence of your status due to a wildfire; a concise explanation supported by a police report or an insurance claim would be instrumental in fast-tracking your request.
  3. Address Updates: It’s vital to keep your address updated with USCIS. Any delay in receiving official correspondence or benefits can further aggravate your situation. Do remember, an update with the U.S. Postal Service doesn’t automatically update it with USCIS.

As challenging as these situations are, remember that systems are in place to help you navigate the intricacies of immigration, ensuring you’re not alone in these trying times. Remember to stay updated, informed, and to reach out when in need.
