How quickly will I get a response to my Form G-639 FOIA request?


The Freedom of Information Act requires that USCIS respond to your request within 20 business days from the date received. You will receive an acknowledgement letter from USCIS that contains a control number and an estimate on time frame. However, if you have not provided sufficient information to process the request, USCIS may respond with a request for additional information. Further, USCIS may extend the response time for an additional 10 business days in certain situations.

How can I check the status of my FOIA request?
