Draft Case Expired Notification

According to our records, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) previously notified you that your draft application/petition for would be automatically cancelled if not completed and submitted within 30 calendar days of 07/17/2014. Unfortunately, the time to complete and submit your application/petition has expired.

Therefore, the application/petition you started on 07/17/2014 has been deleted. As a result, you can no longer view or access your draft application/petition. If you wish to continue to seek this benefit from USCIS, you will need to start a new application/petition.

If you have any questions, please contact customer service at (800) 375-5283 or (800) 767-1833 (TTY) for assistance.

Please DO NOT reply to this message.
