UPDATE! USCIS I-797 APPROVAL NOTICES
Last week, MU Law notified its clients of a USCIS policy change, in which the USCIS was sending I-797 Approval Notices to Petitioners and Beneficiaries, instead of sending these documents to the Petitioners and Beneficiaries' designated representatives and lawyers.
In a quick break from this policy, USCIS Director Mayorkas announced that the USCIS will revert back to the long-standing policy of sending I-797 Approval Notices to the Petitioners and Beneficiaries' representatives and lawyers. MU Law applauds this reversion of policy. The USCIS is often lambasted for ill-thought out policy. It is therefore only right to highlight when they make the right decision.
