Did you recently receive a NOID Notice of Intent to Deny and aren’t sure what to do next? Does it feel like your entire path to immigration has been stopped? It’s natural to feel that way, but when you receive a NOID, the first thing to do is to be calm. Sure, that’s easier said than done, but when looking at a NOID, it’s important to remember the first three letters (“Notice of Intent”) and not just focus on the “Deny.” You haven’t been denied yet. Indeed, you may not be. All a NOID does is let you know that you need to make some changes. We may be able to help.
Common Reasons for a NOID Notice of Intent to Deny
There are many reasons that you could have received a NOID. Perhaps the most common is that the USCIS looked at your information and found the evidence that you and your spouse have a “bona fide relationship” insufficient. Again, as frustrating and maddening as that can be, the best thing you can do is to stay calm. It could be that the USCIS felt that way after seeing your home, your public records, or even your social media. Bear in mind, that it could be something as simple as the USCIS thought you were unable to answer basic questions about each other in your interview or that there was a conflict with your information.
The Most Important Thing to Do When You Get a NOID
Once you’ve read the NOID and managed to maintain your calm, the next step is to read it carefully. Read it as carefully as possible. In fact, you may want to read it out loud. That way, you aren’t misinterpreting any aspect of why the USCIS sent you the NOID. You have 30 days to respond to it, and the last thing you want to do is to miss the deadline. We can help there as well.
