About The Federal Tort Claim Act

The Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) is a federal statute that allows private parties to sue the United States government, such as USCIS, for wrongs committed by the federal government. Our office has successfully sued U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for their actions which have caused harm by their intentional and unintentional actions. Lawsuits against USCIS include wrongful deportation, false imprisonment, abuse of process, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

To file a claim under the Federal Tort Claim Act, you must:

  • File within two years from the time your claim arises
  • Include facts and damages in your claim
  • Once your claim has been submitted, the federal agency has six months to rule on it. The agency may either “admit” your claim and agree the claim is valid or you may need to go to court. If your claim is rejected, you have six months to file your lawsuit.
