On September 21, 2006, USCIS announced that it is expanding a pilot program that changes filing procedures for aliens submitting Form I-485 based on a family relationship, the diversity visa lottery, or qualification for most special immigrant categories. (71 FR 55206, 9/21/06) Under the expanded pilot program, affected aliens residing within the jurisdiction of the Dallas District Office, El Paso District Office, or Oklahoma City Sub-Office will be required to file in person at the appropriate local office, rather than by mail, after self-scheduling an appointment using Internet-based InfoPass. The purpose of the pilot program is to test an alternative to current filing and processing procedures with the goal of achieving a 90-day processing time for affected Forms I-485.
