How to Properly Sign & Scan USCIS Forms

If you are working with Malakouti Law on your immigration application, please follow the following instructions carefully for any signatures related to a USCIS application.


  1. Print and sign all forms (where signature is requested) by hand, not electronically (i.e. using docusign, Adobe Acrobat, etc.).

  2. Sign the forms in black ink.

  3. If you are working with Malakouti Law, email a copy of ALL pages of the document you are being asked to sign, not just the signature page.
