USCIS again extends COVID-19-related flexibilities

On October 24, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced it is extending the flexibilities for responding to requests, notices, and decisions issued in connection with certain immigration benefits and programs, including, but not limited to requests for evidence, notices of intent to deny, notices of intent to revoke and notices of intent to rescind. We note that the flexibility policy does not require any showing of cause for the delay in responding to USCIS. As such, anyone required to respond to USCIS may take advantage of the additional time if the request, notice, or decision meets the eligibility requirements set out in the announcement. The additional 60 calendar days can be advantageous when preparing a successful response, particularly in cases involving complex facts or issues.
