Requests for More Information or Interview:

In addition to the "Initial Evidence and Supporting Documentation Required" (above), we may request more information or evidence or we may request that you appear at an USCIS office for an interview. We may also request that you submit the original of any copy. We will return these originals when they are no longer required.


If you knowingly or willfully falsify or conceal a material fact or submit a false document with this request, we will deny the benefit you are filing for and may deny any other immigration benefit. In addition, you will face severe penalties provided by law and may be subject to criminal prosecution.

Privacy Act Notices:

We ask for the information on this application, and associate evidence, to determine if you have established eligibility for the immigration benefit you are seeking. Our legal right to ask for this information is in sections 103(a) and 274A(h)(3) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. We may provide this information to other government agencies. Failure to provide this information and any requested evidence may delay a final decision or result in denial of your request.
