Federal Immigration Files

A person’s immigration file(s) can be obtained by filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request (Form G-639). The FOIA provides that any person has a right, enforceable in court, to obtain access to federal agency records, except to the extent that such records (or portions of them) are protected from public disclosure by one of nine exemptions or by one of three special law enforcement record exclusions.

An FOIA request can be made for any agency record. There are several distinct agencies involved in the immigration process and each has different types of records they maintain, as well as different procedures to request their release. Before sending a request to a federal agency, our immigration attorney will determine which agency is likely to have the records sought.

Filing a Form G-639 with the USCIS provides a way to learn what the USCIS knows about an individual. This information can be valuable to us in understanding the specifics of your case so that we can determine your legal options and advise you correctly.
