At Kasturi Law, our Illinois immigration and nationality law attorney helps individuals whose immigration applications are found to have significant deficiencies or issues that could lead to a denial and respond to a Notice of Intent to Deny (NOID).

A NOID is a formal letter issued by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to inform applicants that their immigration application is at risk of being denied. The NOID details specific reasons why the application does not meet the required criteria and allows the applicant to address these issues before making a final decision.

Receiving a NOID is a serious matter, but with careful preparation and prompt action, you can address the issues raised and potentially overcome the intent to deny your application.

We can help.


Do Not Underestimate the Seriousness of a Notice of Intent to Deny

A person may receive a NOID from USCIS for various reasons, depending on the specifics of their immigration applications.

They may include, but are not limited to:

  • Incomplete or Insufficient Documentation.
  • Inconsistencies or Discrepancies.
  • Eligibility Concerns.
  • Lack of Credibility.
  • Issues with Supporting Evidence.
  • Financial Concerns.
  • Immigration Violations.
  • Security Concerns.

The first step in responding to a NOID is understanding the reason(s) it was sent. Carefully read the notice to know why USCIS intends to deny your application.

The second step is to note the deadline for responding to the NOID. You typically have 30 days from the date of the notice to respond, but the exact timeframe will be specified in the letter. Missing the window will result in the denial of your immigration application.

What are the Benefits of Partnering with an Immigration Attorney to Respond to a NOID?

Consulting an immigration attorney can help you understand the NOID, prepare a strong response, and navigate any complexities in your case.

At Kasturi Law, our immigration attorney can help you:

  • Gather any additional documents or evidence that address the issues raised in the NOID. This may include missing documents, additional affidavits, or clarifications of any discrepancies.
  • Organize the evidence clearly, making it easy for the USCIS officer to review.
  • Draft a response letter addressing each point raised in the NOID. Explain how the additional evidence you are submitting resolves the issues.
  • Attach the supporting documents to your response letter. Ensure each document is labeled and referenced appropriately in your response.
  • Ensuring your response is complete and submitted within the specified deadline.
  • After we submit your response, our attorney will monitor your case status through USCIS to help you stay informed about any updates or additional actions needed.

Our immigration attorney’s expertise can significantly enhance the quality of your response and improve your chances of a favorable outcome.

A NOID is a critical part of the immigration application process because it offers the applicant a second chance to clarify and provide additional information that could lead to an approval rather than an outright denial.

Taking prompt and effective action in response to a NOID is crucial for your success.
