We filed I-131 re-entry permit for my sister and brother-in-law in October 2020. So far in these 4 months we have only received the application receipt. No biometrics appointment. My sister and brother-in-law have gone back to India. I know USCIS do not refund the money of application but they are late due to COVID, in that case do they not consider refunding the application money in amount of $1320? Else I am planning to dispute those checks with my bank. Will that work?
The only advice that I can provide is that you cannot bounce checks to the USCIS. And secondly, there are no refunds available. A government benefit is never a promise unfortunately- and they are using the pandemic as justification for these unprecedented times.
