USCIS Moves Further toward Electronic Filing

On December 29, 2005, USCIS published notices of proposed information collections on new forms to be used in an electronic filing environment. The proposed forms are expected to be posted to the USCIS website within the next few days, and AILA has requested copies of them. Contacts related to USCIS indicate that the goal for USCIS is to have a true electronic filing/electronic adjudication system, and to develop a database within the agency that is built around the applicant's history, rather than around individual filings (which is the concept on which the current CLAIMS system is built). AILA's President, Deborah Notkin, has appointed a working group on electronic filing, and USCIS has reached out to AILA to obtain input on the system from the user's perspective.
