Update on USCIS Processing of Delayed Name Check I-485 Applicants

The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) has confirmed that the USCIS service centers are conducting “sweeps” to find adjustment of status (I-485) cases that can be reviewed for adjudication under the changes in background check procedures announced by USCIS on February 4, 2008. AILA national has asked USCIS for information on processing of adjustment of status cases at local offices that can be reviewed under the same memo, and many chapters have already contacted local USCIS offices for further information on local processing.

According to AILA, the USCIS hopes to have identified and taken action on cases by April 30, 2008.
