As required by federal regulations, all applications filed with USCIS must be properly completed, submitted, and executed in accordance with the applicable form instructions. See 8 CFR 103.2(a)(1); 8 CFR 103.2(b)(1). Properly completed forms help ensure that USCIS can verify the identity and eligibility of applicants, and will help reduce the need for USCIS to issue requests for evidence because information is missing on applications.
