Deadlines Extended: USCIS Extends Flexibility on Deadlines for Certain Post-Filing Requests

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today, May 1, 2020, a list of extending flexibilities to assist applicants and petitioners in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The flexibility will apply to cases where the issuance date listed on the request, notice, or decision is between March 1 and July 1, 2020.

The response can be submitted within 60 calendar days after the due date set in the request or notice. USCIS will consider a Notice of Appeal or Motion (Form I-290B) received up to 60 calendar days from the date of the decision before it takes any action.

The Extends Flexibility applies to the following:

  • Requests for Evidence (RFE);

  • Continuations to Request Evidence (N-14);

  • Notices of Intent to Deny (NOID);

  • Notices of Intent to Revoke (NOIR);

  • Notices of Intent to Rescind and Notices of Intent to Terminate regional investment centers; and

  • Filing date requirements for Form I-290B, Notice of Appeal or Motion.

The USCIS is adopting several measures to protect our workforce and community and to minimize the immigration consequences for those seeking immigration benefits during this time. For more information, please visit or contact our office if you have any immigration-related questions or concerns, as we are happy to provide free initial consultations.
