USCIS to Expedite Review for Certain Cases Affected by Specific Administrative Inaccuracies
Release Date: April 04, 2012
WASHINGTON—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has established an expedited process for reviewing and correcting decisions resulting from certain administrative errors. This process enables customers to request an expedited review of their case and correction of the decision where data entry and/or an administrative error resulted in a denial or rejection of their petition or application.
A customer or his or her authorized representative may contact the National Customer Service Center (NCSC) at 1-800-375-5283 to request that an expedited service request be created if he or she believes that an adverse adjudicative action fits within the criteria listed below:
Once USCIS has received an expedited review request from an applicant or petitioner, the agency will make every effort to take action on the request within 5 business days. This process, and any customer submissions relating to this expedited case review process, does not replace, change, circumvent, or affect any rights of USCIS customers or USCIS in the administrative appeals process. This process will also not impact time frames for appeals or motions, fix errors made by a petitioner or his or her authorized representative, create an independent right of action, or address errors not included in the specific administrative errors listed above.
