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

FAQs: What Is A Notice of Intent to Revoke?

A Notice of Intent to Revoke (NOIR) is a communication sent by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to someone about a previously approved immigration petition, telling that USCIS intends to cancel the petition approval. The NOIR will include the reasons for revocation and will give the person a deadline to respond to the NOIR.

Why Will USCIS Revoke an Approved Petition?

Most frequently someone is issued a NOIR because the government has discovered some new and negative information about the applicant.

Although most immigration attorneys feel that receiving a Notice of Intent to Revoke is worse than receiving a Notice of Intent to Deny, if you receive a NOIR it is not a lost cause.

There are many reasons why USCIS might issue a Notice of Intent to Revoke:

• Your immigration application has incorrect facts

• Your terms of employment have changed in a work-based visa application

• The government suspects marriage or other fraud

• Your beneficiary is not qualified to sponsor you, or your beneficiary has died

What To Do If You Receive A Notice of Intent to Revoke

If you receive a NOIR, you typically have 30 days to respond to the government. You should immediately take your notice to a skilled 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 revocation case.

Typically, it is a long wait for USCIS to review your case. If your case is denied and the Notice of Intent to Revoke is not canceled, you can file an appeal or file an entirely new immigration application, depending on your situation. An experienced immigration attorney can evaluate your case and advise you on your options.
