Immigration Issues/E-filing

Question

Hi,

Would you recommend using E-filing with USCIS? I have heard
horror stories where the documents sent later have not been
matched with the original application. Would you recommend
it? What's been your experience?

Thanks,
Sridhar

Answer
Hi,

There is no advantage in e-filing, as the supporting documents have to be mailed in any event. It is better to submit the actual USCIS form along with all supporting documentation in one package.

The only advantage with e-filing that I can perceive is if the applicant's nonimmigrant visa status is expiring on the same day, and filing by mail would make the application to extend or change nonimmigrant visa status late by one day.
