Thread: I-485 Writ of Mandamus - Court Orders USCIS to Show Cause...

  1. #1
    My wife and I recently filed a WOM with the Southern District of Florida to try to get the USCIS to make a decision on her I-485. The court has ordered the govenment to show cause as to why the WOM should not be granted. To anyone with insight into these matters...is this a standard procedure? The court also ordered a hearing be set 60 days post our initial filing.

    Standard -- just Court telling Immigration to respond to your Mandamus filing.

    Thanks KMc...

    With all the trash talk about the USCIS fighting Writs of Mandamus, I wanted to make sure I was prepared!

    NFTD3,

    I know what you are saying. I am taking seriously this change in the government's posture when reacting to Writs of Mandamus. However, the facts surrounding these types of cases remain.

    Gonzales' own words during the press conference on the increase of fees, illustrates that the FBI background checks are not fully funded by the USCIS. A government department that is self-funded and poorly so.

    These delays are simply about resources and how the authorities manage the process.

    Anyone who had to stand in line in Miami, just to talk to an officer can realize that this department is undermanned and under funded. It is all about money.

    Keep in mind, the Writ of Mandamus is not a guarantee of a positive outcome. We are simply expediting the inevitable. We are not asking the court to do the work of the USCIS, we are asking the court to raise the level of awareness to those who can act and make a decision.

    Please, all of us need to remember, for every immigrant filing to adjust status based on family, there is a US citizen affected by these delays as well. My country owes me an answer. If they want to fight, I'll fight. All of us should.

    Ok...The USCIS has submitted a 12 page response to the courts request to show cause as to why it should not assert Mandamus in my case. I filed my response and am awaiting the court's decision. Hopefully, we at least get to appear before the judge at the scheduled hearing. That said, a new issue for my wife as come to light and I ask the board for its opinion on the following:

    My wife has a need to access some of the equity in the house she purchased before we were married and now live in together. She cannot obtain the proper loan as a Foreign National. Can I bring this up at the hearing, if it goes that far?

    It's true then. Uscis is really fighting the lawsuit. In the past, for the majority, just filing was enough to send USCIS into motion. It is quite bad news for people who are planning to file the suit in the future. Once the case goes to the court, the need for lawyers become real.

    I would think that any loan issue your wife is having is irrelevant to the case. That is something all LPR has to deal with, and it does not strengthen your case as to why USCIS should act on your case.
