When you are applying for a Green Card to come to the United States, any number of unexpected situations may occur. There are several deadlines that need to be met when applying for a visa but due to extreme circumstances that may arise, you may have a difficult time getting all the paperwork in. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services understands that extraneous situations may occur. You may be facing a natural disaster that can have a serious impact on your ability to file paperwork in time. Perhaps conditions have become quite violent and unsafe and you cannot meet the deadlines you were given.
There also may be situations that you would never expect to happen. Unfortunately, certain situations may occur in which your documentation was destroyed through no fault of your own. If you already were in the U.S. and your Green Card documentation was destroyed, you will have to fill out a Form I-90 to apply for a replacement. If necessary, you may also submit a request to have your application expedited so you can obtain the paperwork or documents sooner.
If you have had important documents compromised through no fault of your own due to an extreme circumstance, it is important to know what your options are and that all hope is not lost. If you need any further assistance regarding your immigration process, you should contact an experienced immigration attorney today.
