On October 7, 2011, we reported that the USCIS changed its procedures regarding the delivery of approval notices. Effective September 12, 2011, notices were sent to the applicants or petitioners instead of counsel, as had been the long standing practice. There were numerous complaints through several channels, and the USCIS hosted a "Stakeholder Engagement" session to receive feedback on October 12. A week later, Director Alejandro Mayorkas announced that the policy would be reversed, and the USCIS would again send approval notices to counsel of record. The reprogramming of the system to restore the policy will take approximately 6-8 weeks, but should eliminate the problems created by the sudden change in this long standing practice.
