USCIS Updates Guidance for Family-Based Immigrant Visas

USCIS has updated its guidance on handling family-based immigrant visa petitions, including Form I-130 and certain Form I-360 petitions. The new guidance addresses how USCIS corrects approval notice errors and manages requests for consular processing or adjustment of status. Petitioners must provide accurate information about the beneficiary’s address and processing preference to avoid delays. The update aims to streamline processing, reduce the need for Form I-824, and offer greater flexibility for petitioners without a consular post.
