[HOT] What is the current approval rate of I-526s and I-829s?


As of first quarter of 2011 fiscal year, denial rates of both I-526s and I-829s are over 25% each, which is unacceptable. We hear a lot of complaints from RCs on unreasonable RFEs and inconsistencies in the adjudication all the time.

This means the real denial rates for both petitions are really higher, because some petitions are voluntarily withdrawn and refiled or abandoned.
