Let’s talk about one more benefit of suing USCIS or the state department. Hi, I’m Jim Hacking, immigration lawyer practicing law throughout the United States out of our office here in St. Louis, Missouri.
You know, we’ve made prior videos about lawsuits and why you might want to file a lawsuit to get your case moving at USCIS or at the National Visa Center or at an embassy. We have filed hundreds of these cases, literally hundreds and hundreds of these cases.
Our numbers keep going up and we enjoy working on them. And we’ve talked too about how when you file a lawsuit, you sort of build a line of communication with the embassy or with USCIS that you can’t normally get.
So of course USCIS and the state department have built all these filters so that when you’re inquiring into a case, no one who’s actually working on your case is seeing those inquiries. It’s very hard to get through to the officer who is actually handling your case. And so, you can’t really do that in a meaningful way.
And we talked about that in a prior video, but in this video, what I want to talk about is the fact that when you file a lawsuit, one of the other benefits is that some higher level officer, some, what I would say, more experienced immigration officer or state department official is going to be looking at your case.
And the lawsuit, when I filed the lawsuit, I serve the US attorneys in Washington D.C. and they call up their clients, which are the agencies, USCIS or the state department. And when they call those agencies, they’re not calling the officer, they’re calling the officer’s boss’s boss or the or they’re calling the attorneys for USCIS or the attorneys for the state department.
So there are lots of benefits to filing a lawsuit, but the one that I want to focus on here is that you’re getting sort of a higher level of analysis. So if you have a tricky case or a complicated case, sometimes filing a lawsuit is a really good idea, not only for getting your case moving along, but because you’re going to get smarter people looking at this.
So if they’re making a mistake or close to making mistake and you sue them, sometimes having smarter people involved or more experienced people involved, I should say, then you might improve the chances of success.
So if you’re thinking about suing USCIS, and if you’re thinking about suing the state department, keep in mind that if you have a tricky case or what they view as a tricky case, filing that lawsuit might just get you a better level of analysis. So that’s one of the other benefits of filing these kinds of lawsuits.
