Get help finding the Right Immigration Lawyer for your case
In some cases, the U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) fails to move forward with or delays an immigration case. When a green card application, citizenship application or other type of immigration application is delayed, a writ of mandate, also known as writ of mandamus, can be filed with the Federal Court. A writ of mandate is a formal written civil action that is issued to the USCIS when an applicant's case has been delayed for one year or more, with or without explanation, to compel the USCIS to take action on the application.
Seeking a writ of mandate may be necessary in order to protect your rights, but while a writ of mandate authorizes the court to order a remedy, it is only a means of determining the reasons why the decisions are pending. It does not determine the outcome of the decision. By forcing the USCIS to make a decision, an applicant might be faced with denial. This may be appealed in a timely manner, with the help of an immigration lawyer.
If you are trying to force an action on your immigration matter, an immigration lawyer can help. Immigration lawyers have extensive experience handling immigration litigation matters and can assist you with filing a writ of mandate so that your immigration issues are resolved effectively. Immigration lawyers can file a writ of mandate to force action on your application, and if necessary, appeal denied applications.
