Usefulness of Form I-854

With all this, it is convenient that you know the function and purpose of this certificate. Because on many occasions it is not usually given the importance it deserves. For this reason, we will explain to you what this type of form is for.

This type of form is used for two different situations. In other words, form I-854 A is used by all those law enforcement agencies that wish to request that a foreign witness or informant have the nonimmigrant classification S.

While, on the other hand, form I-854 B, is used by law enforcement agencies to request that foreign witnesses or informants who have S nonimmigrant status have the authorization to request adjustment to lawful permanent resident status. .

Where to request it and what is the rate?

In another vein, it is important to make known where the request for this type of specific format can be submitted. Since, in general, this type of form is sent incorrectly to certain offices.

  • United States Department of Justice.
  • Criminal Division.
  • Compliance Operations Office Policy and Statutory Enforcement Unit
  • John C. Keeney Bldg. Tenth Floor.
  • 10 and Constitución Ave. NW.
  • Washington, DC 20530-0001.

To ensure that you are using the latest versions of these forms, visit the website of USCIS where you can get the latest USCIS forms and immigration related information.

What is Form I-854?

We conclude this article by offering a brief definition. Well, form I-854 A is nothing more than a document used by agencies to request that a foreign witness or informant obtain the classification of type S nonimmigrant.

On the other hand, the I-854 B form has a different function. And, in this type of format, public agencies request that foreign witnesses or informants who have type S nonimmigrant status are authorized to request adjustment of status to lawful permanent resident.

We should highlight an important aspect about those agencies that can submit this type of form in particular. In this way, the only ones authorized to carry it out are law enforcement agencies.
