USCIS Will Allow Resubmission of Certain FY 2021
H-1B Petitions Rejected or Closed Due to Start Date

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced that they will accept resubmitted fiscal year (FY) 2021 H-1B cap-subject petitions that were rejected or administratively closed solely because the requested start date was after Oct. 1, 2020. If your petition was rejected from requesting a start date after October 1, 2020, you may re-submit that previously filed petition, with all applicable fees, at the address below. The petition must be re-submitted before October 1, 2021. If properly re-submitted, USCIS will consider the petition to have been filed of the original receipt date.

USCIS Announces Pilot Program for Credit Card Payments Using Form G-1450 When Filing Form I-485

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services today announced a pilot program for accepting credit card payments using Form G-1450, Authorization for Credit Card Transactions, for U nonimmigrants filing Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status.
The pilot program began on May 3 at the Nebraska Service Center and will be limited to this location. The service center started accepting credit card payments from certain Form I-485 applicants using Form G-1450. Applicants must be U nonimmigrants (victims of criminal activity). At the end of the pilot, USCIS will evaluate the results and determine the next steps for possibly expanding this payment option for other forms or other service centers.

For more information, please see our Direct Filing Addresses for Form I-485 page
Vermont Service Center Address Change

Effective June 14, 2021, the Vermont Service Center will no longer receive any incoming mail at the St. Albans, VT facility, which is being decommissioned.
Mail sent to the previous addresses will be forwarded for one year, but any mail sent to the previous addresses after June 2022 may be returned to the sender by the United States Postal Service or the courier service used.

Prosecutorial Discretion
ICE has recently issued a memo that allows prosecutors to have the power to dismiss cases of immigrants with certain special concerns or situations. This applies for immigrants who are long-time permanent residents that are pregnant, elderly, have a serious condition, or have been been in the U.S. since a young age.
Hurricane Season
Hurricane season has arrived and will last until November 30th, 2021. As a hurricane is a natural disaster, we must be prepared for any situations to arise. Hurricanes can typically last from 12-24 hours, so buying supplies in advance such as food, water, candles, flashlights, batteries, and a first-aid kit is highly recommended. Check out the content below to learn more about property damages and insurance during this season!
