Fredrick W VoigtmannImmigration Attorney
A NOID means that the USCIS intends to deny the petition and it does not appear that any evidence is missing or needs to be clarified. Before it can deny the petition, USCIS must give the petitioner the opportunity to respond and rebut any derogatory information listed in the notice. A NOID is worse than a Request for Evidence (RFE) but better than a denial, because you still have the opportunity to get the petition approved if you timely respond to the NOID and address/resolve all of the USCIS' concerns. Since a NOID is very serious and the USCIS intends to deny the case, the petitioner should contact an experienced EB-5 immigration attorney.
