Signatures Become Even More Important

Effective March 18, 2018, USCIS will no longer accept power of attorney signatures on forms from petitioners and applicants seeking immigration benefits.

For forms filed by a corporation or other legal entity, an authorized person who is employed by the petitioner must sign.

This is important because if a form is filed with a faulty signature, USCIS may reject the form without offering a chance to fix the problem.

Power of attorney signatures are only authorized for children under 14 years old and individuals with disabilities.
