U.S. immigration applications can be complex and cumbersome, so it’s always better to work with a licensed immigration attorney. But their legal services can be very expensive, and many immigrants opt to go through the process alone.
However, mistakes are common when filing immigration forms, and the applications can therefore be delayed or denied by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
These are some of the worst mistakes filling paperwork that should be avoided at all costs, according to USCIS:
Failure to sign a document
Without a signature, the document is automatically rejected and returned.
▪ Using outdated forms
USCIS recommends downloading forms directly from its website, filling in the information requested electronically and then printing them before sending them to its offices.
▪ Leaving parts of the questionnaire blank
All forms must be completely filled in.
▪ Using colored ink or illegible writing
The forms must be filled in with black ink and in clearly legible lettering inside the spaces provided.
