USCIS Update

California Service Center Now Issuing Delayed Form I-797 Approval Notices

USCIS is pleased to announce that it has resolved the systems problems creating delays in Form I-797 notice issuance from the California Service Center (CSC) that had been previously announced to the public. CSC is in the process of generating and mailing the delayed approval notices and affected customers should expect delivery by July 20, 2007.

Please include your receipt number and/or your A number with your inquiry. The CSC e-mail address for inquiries is:
