|INFOPASS appointments: The right option for you?||| Print ||

Q: Is it true that I can make an appointment on the Internet to see a US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officer in Boston to discuss my case?
A: First of all, we recommend that you visit an IIIC legal clinic before making an appointment with USCIS, no matter what your current immigration status is. We can determine whether it is sensible for you to speak with an immigration officer in person, or whether your question can be answered in some other way.
What do I need for my appointment?
Not everyone needs to visit a USCIS district office. If you just need immigration application forms and instructions, they can be downloaded free of charge on the USCIS web site at www.uscis.gov by clicking the “Immigration Forms” link. Likewise, if you just want to check the status of a pending case, you can call the USCIS customer service number, 1-800-375-5283, or you can do so on line by clicking the “Check Case Status” link at www.uscis.gov. When doing so, you need a copy of any notices of action you have received from USCIS, so that you can provide the receipt number for the case.
For a free, confidential consultation on any immigration issue, visit one of our legal clinics advertised weekly in the Emigrant.
