The last few years have brought about no shortage of delays and stubborn cases, causing a paradigm shift in the notion of what is considered “normal processing.” The experts on this panel will discuss where delays are happening in many cases, what is causing them, and strategies to employ to move these cases along. They will focus on the current situations at national service centers, local USCIS field offices, the National Visa Center (NVC), and U.S. consulates, and advise on best practices for bringing about effective and efficient solutions for “unsticking” stuck cases.

Featured Topics

  • USCIS Customer Service and InfoPass
  • Will AILA Local Liaison Have a Resurgence Under the Biden Administration?
  • Tips and Tricks for Congressional Assistance: When Is It Most Helpful?
  • How and When to Effectively Use the Ombudsman’s Office
  • Once the Case Is “Unstuck”: Consular vs. USCIS Cases Next Steps
  • Mandamus and Other Litigation Options
