FAQs: What Is A Notice of Intent to Deny? | Chicago Immigration Attorney Mario Godoy

FAQs: What Is A Notice Of Intent To Deny?

In general, a Notice Of Intent To Deny (NOID) is an alert from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) means that the evidence sent with the immigration petition is insufficient and USCIS plans to reject the application if the foreign national does not provide additional information. If you receive a NOID, it means that after reviewing your application the evaluating USCIS officer does not think you qualify for the immigration service you applied for.

A Notice of Intent to Deny is not an official denial of your Green Card or other immigration petition. It is a notice that your information is incomplete and that USCIS has doubts about your qualifications and eligibility for your application, and that you will receive an official denial if you do not provide the required additional evidence. If you submit the additional required information, you are not guaranteed that USCIS will accept your application.

What to Do If You Receive a NOID

Typically, USCIS gives you 30 days to respond to a Notice of Intent to Deny (NOID). You should take your NOID to an experienced immigration attorney, along with any additional documents, applications and evidence for your immigration petitions. This is not the end of your immigration case, and a skilled immigration attorney can help you submit the requested information and help you get the best possible outcome for your case.
