The current immigration policy has tightened, and case approval has become stricter. Many clients are receiving Requests for Evidence or Notices of Intent to Deny after personally applying or after hiring immigration intermediaries inexperienced in U.S. law to handle their applications. After leaving the case to an intermediary, a client received a Notice of Intent to Deny from the U.S.C.I.S. However, with the attorney’s professional guidance and careful preparation, the decision of the U.S.C.I.S. was reversed, and the asylum approval was finally obtained.
