USCIS ROLLS OUT NEW WEB-BASED CASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR ADOPTION CASES

Rate this Entry

My old friend Robert Divine championed a concept during his tenure as interim USCIS head of a web-based system allowing people to file cases online and be able to update and track matters all from the same password accessible web page. USCIS has just introduced its first example of this new form of filing with the SIMS Pilot.



SIMS stands for Secure Information Management Service. The first type of cases that will be a part of the new system are the Inter-country adoptions. SIMS will be available for I-600A, I-600, N-600 or N-600K applications filed on or after July 5th. The project is only being rolled out for USCIS personnel in Memphis (my home town - yes!), Newark, Bangkok, Frankfurt, and Mexico City. I work pro bono with an adoption agency in Memphis so I'm looking forward to seeing how this works.



Under SIMS, if information changes in an application, an applicant can go online and update the information in the application. Cases will be linked so if later applications are filed, it will not be necessary to completely reenter all the data. And cases will be linked so, for example, all cases of family members can be tied together.



Even if you have no interest in adoptions, we expect that this will represent the future of filing for all applications.
