Should we sign all USCIS application in Blue or Black ink?
3 attorney answers
While form instructions may say black ink. We fill the form with black and sign in blue.
Is my answer "BEST ANSWER" and/or "HELPFUL"? If so, please acknowledge and mark it so. Mr. Smith has 25 years of successful U.S. immigration law experience with cases just like yours. Still, his response is general in nature, as all the facts are unknown to him, and cannot be construed as legal advice. Please retain immigration counsel to analyze your particular situation in order to receive specific advice. Specific answers requires knowledge of all the pertinent facts of your case. Any answers offered by Mr. Smith on Avvo are of a general nature only, and does not create an attorney-client relationship.

I agree with my astute colleague that all data entry should be made in black ink and signatures always blue.

I always use black for the data on the forms ... but blue for the signatures.
