Hurricane Sandy’s Aftermath

I pray that you and your loved ones are safe if you were in any way impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

My office, which is located in downtown New York City, remains closed until power is restored in downtown New York City.  Currently, there is no power below 34th Street in New York City.  It is unclear when power will be restored.

Many U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services offices in the NY/NJ area remain closed due to extensive flooding/power outages/damage.  The USCIS provides daily updates on which offices are closed.  Please check the updated list before going to any scheduled appointment that you may have.

Immigration courts located at 26 Federal Plaza and 201 Varick Street remain closed as of November 1, 2012.  It is unclear when they will reopen.  The Executive Office for Immigration Review provides daily updates on which courts are closed.  Please check the updated list before going to any scheduled appointment that you may have.
