Pending Lawsuit to Challenge Delays in I-829 Receipts Seeks Plaintiffs

02.08.21 | Government Affairs

A lawsuit is being prepared that will challenge the current months-long delay in the issuance of I-829 receipts by U.S Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS). USCIS is required by law to provide investors and their family members proof of their lawful permanent resident (LPR) status, and has been routinely failing to do so in a timely manner. In addition to resulting in hardships such as the inability to begin employment or travel to see sick family members or attend funerals, the failure of an immigrant to “at all times” have official evidence of LPR status is a misdemeanor.

In order to file this lawsuit, it requires 10-20 named plaintiffs and the representing law firm is currently seeking investors who want to be a part of this lawsuit. There is a fee associated with joining this suit, but the fee has been significantly reduced in an effort to garner support and plaintiffs. Investors and their family members will continue to work with their present immigration counsel on their I-829 petitions and will be clients of the representing law firm only for the purposes of this litigation. Plaintiffs may choose to communicate with us directly or through their current attorneys.

If you have interested investors, please contact ashley.casey@iiusa.org to be put in touch with the firm representing this suit.
