FOIA/Privacy Act Overview
USCIS uses a 3-track system to process FOIA requests.
Form I-862, Notice to Appear, documenting a future scheduled date of the subject’s hearing before the immigration
Form I-122, Order to Show Cause, documenting a future scheduled date of the subject’s hearing before the
Form I-863, Notice of Referral to Immigration Judge; or
a written notice of continuation of a future scheduled hearing before the immigration judge
If you have any questions concerning your pending FOIA/PA request, please:
Please note that the National Records Center can help you with matters concerning your FOIA/PA request, but cannot help you concerning any pending Applications or Petitions or any other type of immigration matter.
The Office of Government Information Services (OGIS), within the National Archives and Records Administration, offers mediation services to resolve disputes between persons making FOIA requests and federal agencies; reviews agency policies, procedures and compliance with FOIA; and submits recommendations to Congress and the President to improve the administration of FOIA.
As the FOIA ombudsman, OGIS provides information, channels communication between requesters and agencies, and handles complaints in an effort to make FOIA work better for the entire FOIA community. In addition, OGIS provides training and issues advisory opinions if mediation fails to resolve disputes.
If you would like the assistance of OGIS or more information, please visit Office of Government Information Services.
