The USCIS sent me a notice by mail, but is indicating that it was undeliverable. What could be the cause of this, and what can be done to fix this issue?


The USCIS normally delivers by secure mail. If the postal service cannot verify that your mailbox belongs to you, then they may not deliver it. You should first confirm that the USCIS has your correct address. If you’ve moved to a new address since filing your case, make sure to follow the advice provided in the MurthyDotCom NewsBrief, Notifying USCIS of Change in Address (23.Oct.2014). Also, you may wish to write your full name on a white card and tape it to the inside of your mailbox to help ensure your mail delivery person is able to identify it as your mailbox. (12.Dec.2016)
