USCIS Reverses the Failed Policy on Handling of I-797 Receipt and Approval Notices

October 23, 2011

Pursuant to the blog post from October 2 (below) about the troublesome USCIS policy of mailing the original receipts and approval notices to the clients directly, given the intense criticism of the policy from various corners, on October 20th the USCIS announced that it is reversing its new policy.  In about six weeks, i.e. around December 1st, the original receipt notices and approval notices will again start to be mailed directly to attorneys.  Clients will received courtesy copies.  This is a welcome sign for us given that there have been reports of missing Request For Evidence notices (RFEs), lost receipt notices, etc.
