Checking on Employment-Based Adjustment Applications Affected by USCIS Background Check Memo

USCIS has informed AILA liaison that members may begin requesting status updates on employment-based adjustment of status cases pending at service centers more than 180 days after March 30, 2008. Previously, SCOPS had asked members to delay making status inquiries until April 30, 2008.

AILA Service Center Operations (SCOPS) Liaison's have confirmed that all Service Centers are conducting "sweeps" to find adjustment of status cases that can be reviewed for adjudication under the changes in background check procedures announced by USCIS on February 4, 2008. Local offices are also waiting for further information on local processing.

SCOPS is asking everyone to hold off on submitting liaison inquiries on cases at the service centers that were delayed due to background checks until after April 30, 2008. The USCIS hopes to have identified and taken action on cases by that date.
