I noticed an error on my I-797 Receipt Notice. Is there a way how to get it fixed?

Every time you receive an I-797 Receipt Notice or Approval notice from USCIS, it is every important that you check that all information on the Notice looks correct.

If you see a spelling mistake or a typographical error (e.g. spelling mistake in your name, wrong date of birth), there is a way how you should be able to get this fixed.

You can file what is called an “e-request” in which you will have to specify what USCIS you filed, and what’s the typographical error. You can file the e-request online and it usually takes USCIS around 3 weeks to get back to you on the e-request.

You can file the e-request on USCIS website when you click here.

You can set up a consultation by clicking the link below.
