Sample Mendez Rojas One-Year Filing Deadline Notice

This document is an informational notice from USCIS about the extension of the one-year filing deadline for some asylum seekers who were detained and not notified that they must file their asylum application within one year of arriving to the U.S. You may receive this notice if you passed a credible fear interview when you came to the United States. You do not have to respond to this notice. However, if you believe you are a member of the Mendez Rojas class and could benefit from the lawsuit, you will need to file a class membership claim whether or not you received this notice. You can read more about this extension to the one-year filing deadline here.
