It Was Worth Every Penny
“Our experience with the Law Offices of Carl Shusterman began with a phone conference with Mr. Shusterman himself, which lasted about an hour. We were assigned to the team of Attorney Jennifer Rozdzielski and Ana Cruz. The situation was not an easy one, and it took about three years and a myriad of paperwork to resolve. We got to know both Jennifer and Ana very well in the process. They stayed positive and kept us on track with all the papers and forms and documentation required. I have to say that we were treated like family, and they were excited when we finally achieved our dreams. We are so glad we chose them – it was worth every penny!!”

USCIS to End Self-Scheduled InfoPass Appointments
USCIS has expanded its Information Services Modernization Program to more field offices. The Detroit and Los Angeles field offices recently were added to the program, which aims to end self-scheduled InfoPass appointments and steer applicants towards online information. The USCIS intends to implement the program in the Newark and Great Lakes field offices in the near future, with full implementation at all field offices anticipated before September 30, 2019, which is the last day of fiscal year 2019. The program requires a person to speak with the USCIS National Customer Service Center (NCSC) by phone before being able to schedule an InfoPass appointment.
