My lawyer responded to noid 5 months ago no response yet. So i asked my lawyer to see whats going on by contacting them, he sent an email to them. They didn't respond so he sent another email and it has been 3 weeks no response. Is that how the lawyers check on the case by shooting emails?
Here in Philadelphia, an attorney can check on the status of an application by (1) attending an infopass appointment at the local USCIS office, (2) writing a status inquiry letter to the USCIS office (which I've found to be pretty useless), (3) emailing an AILA (American Immigration Lawyers Association)/USCIS liason who can check on the status of backlogged cases, and (4) Theoretically, if the attorney knows the complete name of the adjudicating officer, the attorney could figure our the officer's email and contact him/her directly. I generally do not email the adjudicating officer unless specifically invited to do so. Also, the adjudicating officer may switch, and you never know who exactly is reviewing your file. Out of these possibilities, I find emailing the AILA/USCIS liason to be the most effective.
Your best option is to continue communicating with your attorney. Sometimes attorney send emails to USCIS offices, sometimes they do InfoPass appointments, sometimes they do phone calls. You should communicate with your attorney. If you are not satisfied with your attorney, you have the option of finding a new attorney.
This communication does not establish and attorney-client relationship with the Law Office of Michael Carlin PLLC or any individual member of the office. Confidential information should not be sent through this form.
Probably there is an email provided by USCIS immigration attorneys can utilize to receive updates on case status. This is one of the best ways to check on a case. You should stick with your attorney, he is most likely doing the right thing.
