The FCRC is responsible for making a decision to approve or deny benefits based on the information provided by USCIS. The FCRC is also responsible for any appeal that results from that decision.

USCIS provides technical immigration consultation and witness support as needed during the appeal process. Any USCIS support must be prearranged and approved.

Contact USCIS well before the scheduled hearing to resolve any data discrepancies or misunderstandings that might have caused the denial. Telephone USCIS staff at: (312) 385-1820.
