Immigration Alert: Update: Immigration Related Services Functioning as Government Shutdown Ends

As an update to the recent alert “Government Shutdown Impacts Immigration Related Services” on January 23rd, 2018, the U.S. Congress passed a short-term spending bill to fund the government through February 8th, 2018. All government services, including immigration services which were temporarily suspended during the shutdown, have now resumed. At this time, it is unclear whether the government will face a similar shutdown in February, which would again affect immigration services.

Gibney will be closely monitoring the situation and we will provide updates as needed. If you have any questions about this alert, please contact your Gibney representative or email
